We wanted to experience the Hawaii of 1970s fantasies and not in the tourist way. Raven and Mark ensured that was the case. Their home, tucked in a tropical paradise, and sitting atop the 1955 lava flow was more than I could have imagined. We stayed in the Lava Room which is on the main floor. Do not expect expect...

All the excellent reviews of Ma'ukele Lodge are true. Not only are you experiencing paradise you are also immersed in the Hawaiian culture plus Raven and Mark are the most fun-loving and caring hosts. We were celebrating our 49th wedding anniversary and we have always tried to stay in exotic and unusual places. This will always be our all time... More

My husband and I stayed here last year for our Anniversary and we really enjoyed our time. The property has a lot of beautiful foliage, views of the ocean, and is even a quick walk away from lava-covered black sand beaches. It was conveniently located but still quiet and out of the way. Raven and Mark were both extremely friendly... More

Incredible experience at the Ma'ukele Lodge! This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. This trip worked out perfectly for us. Our intention was to check out the current lava flow and it exceeded our dream. We checked into the beach house that rests just behind the 1991 Kaimu Beach lava flow. 'A'a and Pahoehoe lava have...

Staying here doesn't feel like a B&B per say to me, more so you feel like an important guest staying with a long time set of friends you haven't seen in forever. You are made to feel very welcome. The beds were amazing; a creative and unique set up where every one had a different look. The shower outside in... More

Sitting as it does, a stone's throw from Uncle Robert's at Kaimu Beach, and a short drive to Pahoa, there is no lack of things to do near the Ma'ukele Lodge. I used it as my launching point for several adventures along the Puna Coast. But the real treat was the lodge itself. Raven is a warm host. I took... More

We got married on Kona, Big Island and made a one day trip to check out Hilo for the night before heading to Maui for the rest of our honeymoon vacation. Took a little time to find their house.

Raven was a great host and made us a wonderful breakfast that included a close encounter with a gaggle of green geckos. The room was charming and the outdoor shower and bathtub were decadent. Perhaps most interesting was the flow of pahoehoe lave that went right across the beach just past the back yard. It is a great place.

Thank you for sharing this special place with us. Although there are many Hippies that have moved and live in the Island of Hawaii, there is nothing Hippy about this place. This place is 100% Hawaiian. Mahalo and Aloha More

Very cool B&B - I am so happy I found this little gem... It is somewhat hard to find as it is not listed on Booking, but somehow I went into Expedia and found this place! This is a REAL place, as far as one can imagine from Hilton or Marriot... So if a big hotel and a "yes sir"... More

The beauty of this place awes me every day. Unfortunately, The Coquille frogs think the same thing about this environment and have been hitching rides here to enjoy the perfect weather. They have nothing to barr their existence, and sing only at night. There are amazing views, great places to snorkel and natural hot springs to submerge in. I open... More

This is a B&B with character--a lot of thought and imagination went into the rooms, especially the Hawaiian Suite, where you feel like you're living in your own private jungle. We never slept better and felt transported into some kind of dream, with the sounds of the tree frogs mixed with breeze through the palms and surf rumbling in the... More
