If you are looking for a place to stay in the Hilo area, this is it. My wife and I loved this place. You are on a working farm. They turned one building into a country inn with four rooms. The room is large and spacious. There is a kitchenette in the room. However there is also a full kitchen and family room that all have access to. We brought groceries and saved some money by cooking. There is also a grill on the property for guests to use. The fresh fruit from the farm was yummy! Note that there are four cats that hang out here, Twila, George, Gobo and one other gray one. All are very friendly and want to be pet. Since we love cats, we wanted to take them all into the room (a no-no though). You can see the ocean from the back lanai, although it is in the distance. Such a relaxing place and my wife and I would definitely stay here again. Randy & Co are very welcoming and have a bunch of ideas of things to do for you. Note: The Hilo area is pretty far from Kona (about two hours). Don’t underestimate the time it can take to get there, especially if you are behind a slow moving truck. Looking for something to do, we spent a whole day in the Kona area visiting coffee plantations. Try the black sand beach south of the Volcano National Park (we saw a turtle!). Locally there also is the chocolate tour at Hawaiian Crown which is really interesting and comes with samples (fruit/beans & chocolate of course).

Lets start of with saying: I RECOMMEND Mahana house! We stayed 4 nights in this lovely place on the east side of Big Island. Its the wet and lush green part of the island Mahana house is located in the mid of the country siye full of tranquility and nice views. Only 15 minute from Hilo. Mahana house feels like a home away from home. Large room big and covered terrace lanai with lounge chairs. Property is clean, new and well maintained and well decorated full of practical utensils to use. The enormous common and kitchen is full of sweet little details about the island and a large Lanay and BBQ and Kitchen to use. All is so lively and practical that is feels like being home. Wash machine, dishwasher, many kitchen and food basic items for free in the cabinets. Just great. We did not see the owners a lot but talked to the lovely and friendly room keeper 1 morning! Free fruits from the farm were provided. The frogs can be loud at night, but hey that nature! The farm cats come to say hello once in while (only outside)which might be important for furture guest with allergy

This was a wonderful place in the countryside. You breathe fresh air and enjoy great views over the farmland and ocean in the distance. Wonderful property which is very well maintained and well thought through with guest’s comfort in mind. We spent 4 nights here and could easily have stayed longer. Only downside is you do have noisy frogs at night so bring earplugs!

What a gem of a find to stay near Hilo. We only had three days to pack in as much sight seeing as possible. Randy and Alison have a beautiful Inn we stayed at. The corner suite is fantastic! We picked up a few groceries on our way to check in. Every thing else is there you could possible need to make a meal. We had the freshest eggs I’ve ever had for breakfast and not to mention fresh fruit and avacados! Randy’s suggestion of several restaurants were spot on fantastic too. We took out sight seeing after checking in and other to than to return at night to sleep we visited as much of the island as possible. Do not miss volcano national park, Akaka falls, Rainbow falls, and the many lookout points going north. We made it to a black sand beach south of the park and I got to sea the “sea turtles” on the black sand beach. Thanks you for the use of beach towels, coolers, and beach chairs! Your book in our room gave such helpful suggestions on sightseeing and restaurants! Do not miss reading what they have prepared! We truly wished we had been able to stay longer but we will cherish our stay at the Mahana House! Thank you Randy and Alison! We do hope to return someday! Trudy 😁

We loved the Ohana vibe of the Mahana House and its location north of Hilo just a few miles from Akaka Falls. Randy and Allison have created a restful space at an excellent price with privacy and a first class kitchen/common room. Each room has its own lanai looking east which is quite the morning view surrounded by nature and small farms. Hilo is about 20 minutes away and you can get to all the attractions in and around the town by car. Makes for a nice location to day trip to the volcanoes and the beach!
