We didn't have a waterfall view from our room, but we could still hear it. We could see the ocean over the trees in the distance. The waterfall is amazing. The bamboo gardens are gorgeous. The staff are fantastic. And the breakfast!!! It was so delectable. Those stinking waffles!!! I had a hard time not eating all that they had!... More

The road is lousy, and just when you think you've reached the end, there's more. It really is only about a 15-20 drive from the main road in Hilo if you follow the speed limits (and I would suggest doing so for sake of your car and bladder), but, when you get there...WOW!!! The property is beautiful, the views are... More

Beautiful place , out in the country , quite - except for the rumbling of the huge waterfall , great breakfast . There is a long drive from the main road but that gets you away from the busy roads . Nice trails and good views of the waterfall .

Truly wonderful! We stayed at Harmony and would stay here again. We loved the Waterfalls! Hearing the falls all night is so peaceful. Our room was very modern and warmly decorated. The view from the Lanai is tremendous. We took a relaxing stroll along the bamboo gardens and down to the bottom of the waterfalls. The next morning we had... More

Wife & I were in the Orchid room, Harmony House. Falls in "the back yard." Although not far from Hilo, it was serene, peaceful, spiritual. The road to it is pretty lousy for about a mile near Hilo, but otherwise smooth (if narrow), all paved. About 5 miles from the city, but you would think you had the whole Island... More

Although the surroundings were beautiful - our room (Harmony House) was not! Upon arrival - we were informed that our room was next to and we had to walk through the kitchen to reach our room! This was "photoshopped" apparently as a LUXURY RESORT - IT IS NOT. Being assured that the room had been "soundproofed" we agreed to stay... More

Upon arrival after driving 4-6 miles in a one lane road with no lighting, we finally came upon this place which we had reservations for 2 months. We were told ONLY THEN that we were to have to walk through the kitchen to our room! At 5 a.m. every morning, the noise started with breakfast preparations even though when we... More

We stayed at the Inn at Kulaniapia Falls for 2 nights on our trip to the Big Island to see the Volcano Park. Although the Inn is a short drive (about 15 minutes) from downtown Hilo on some bumpy roads, the view of the falls is absolutely amazing! The bed in our room (the Queen Liluokalani Room) was uber soft--it... More

We needed a place to stay while visiting Hilo, Hawaii and the Volcano National Park. There was no place available and then I stumbled upon this B&B and we could not have been happier. We stayed in Harmony House, in the Jasmine room - king sized bed, private bath, and TV. Clean, spacious, friendly, inviting and relaxing. Breakfast was delicious... More
