We went here as a part of a guided trip. I wouldn't have chosen to go here if it had not been included on the itinerary. I was very surprised with how beautiful it was. The setting where we had lunch was gorgeous.

My mom and I were trying to go to Hula Daddy but it didn't open until 10 so we stopped at Mauka Meadows as it opened at 9 am, and this was such a fantastic spur of the moment decision! After parking you stroll through a pathway of flowering arches and fruit trees, bubbling fountains and spectacular views at every... More

The $5 fee is worth admission to this unique property. The walk down is through groves of fruit trees, coffee trees and various plantings. There was even a little flock of wild turkey, which was odd to see in Hawaii. At the covered terrace area we were offered samples of hot coffee and a quick no-pressure sales pitch on the... More

It was July in 93F heat at the beach and we needed to cool down in the afternoon. The Mauka Meadows is in the mountain above Kona. Ah, what a nice place to get away from the heat. Its almost free. The gardens are fabulous, there was a nice lady that gave us a coffee near a superb artificial pond... More

We went in 2013 and were eager to revisit in Nov. 2016. They now request a $5 donation on the honor system at the entrance. At this time they had pruned some of the foliage and it wasn't as lush as before. Yet it was still very worthwhile if you like gardens. Halfway down the hill is the Doutor coffee... More

I was really conflicted how to rate this attraction.
