Property's Favorite Review
Wow, I knew from looking at the pictures of this B&B that it was going to be lovely but nothing compares to actually arriving there. The innkeepers were all so kind and accommodating. I don't think I've ever felt more welcomed at a hotel. We asked if we could drop our luggage off at the desk early on our check in date as we were going to volcanoes national park and they generously and kindly accepted our request and even moved our luggage into our room prior to our late arrival. We arrived back at the inn late that evening and saw the most beautiful starry sky, outlook over Kona, and the ocean in the background. It was glorious. The view from the inn night and day is indescribable. The inn is so quiet and calm at night I had the best night's sleep ever! That being said, I would not recommend children or loud partiers to this inn. It is purely about relaxation and recuperation and everyone is mostly quiet and respectful. The beds are so comfortable, I'm still missing the amazing sleep I had while there. Our room had a king sized bed a tub/shower, and a outdoor private hot tub which still provided great views overlooking kona and the ocean. Our room was called the coffee cherry room. The breakfasts every morning were incredible! Started the day off with some delicious freshly ground and brewed Kona coffee grown on the plantation, followed by the freshest orange juice I've ever tasted and a yummy fresh fruit plate, all grown on the plantation or gathered from local farms. The breakfasts changed every day, but they were all incredible, healthy, and unique. For lunch & dinner the innkeepers can give you recommendations in Kona which is about a 15-20 minute from the inn. We rented a car, but we also Uber-ed one night and found it easy to get an Uber there and back. There are also some small snack shops and stores within walking distance of the inn. We were able and encouraged to explore the entire place. We were even allowed to take and eat fruits that we found. I love to do yoga and the inn supplied yoga matts as well as beach towels and beach supplies. There are so many positive things about this inn, I think I could write a whole book. I am so thankful we got to spend a portion of our honeymoon and the only con about this place is that we couldn't stay longer! We will definitely return in the future.

Mahalo nui loa for choosing Holualoa Inn for your Big Island honeymoon celebration and for posting this beautifully written rave review! Holualoa Inn was created for relaxation and romance and we are delighted you had the opportunity to indulge in both! The night sky here at 1,400 feet above sea level is indeed a marvel - we even have a telescope for guest use - and we do encourage our guests to explore our 30 acres filled with beautiful tropical fruits and flora and, of course, our 5,300 Kona coffee trees. We wish you all the best for a wonderful first year of marriage and hope to welcome you home to Holualoa Inn again in the future. Ho'okahikahi ke aloha, Kathryn and your Holualoa Inn Ohana

From the moment we arrived to the moment that we left, Holualoa Inn and the staff were perfect on every way. We stayed in the Gardeneria suite which was absolutely stunning. The Inn is so peaceful, clean, homely, comfortable, dreamy bed linen, deliciously prepared breakfasts, amazing home baked snacks and wonderful friendly and attentive staff. We booked based on trip advisor reviews and I wish we had stayed longer - but it’s a reason to go back! I would 100% highly recommend the Inn as a must for a stay in Hawaii, I guarantee no one will be disappointed.

The Holualoa Inn check all the boxes my wife and I were looking for in a relaxing five night vacation. The Inn is a 30 acre property, extremely quiet and isolated a few thousand feet on a mountain overlooking the Kona Coast. There aren't that many rooms and while we were there it was primarily filled with adult couples. Kona coffee and fruit trees are located all around the property and we were encouraged to eat any of the ripe fruit. The staff was outstanding!!! Everyone was very friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make sure everything during our stay was absolutely perfect. The food was exceptional-breakfasts were all great along with the special lunch that was prepared for us after a private yoga session. We asked them to make us sack lunches a couple of days for our excursions and they were fantastic! (the veggie wrap was terrific). All in all my wife and I found The Holualoa Inn to be a perfect place for a relaxing stay.

My partner, and friends, love this Inn. The setting is spectacular, set in the middle of a coffee farm, overlooking the ocean. The service from the staff was great. We really enjoyed meeting them. The rooms are beautiful and the public space is charming. You could easily stay on the property the whole time and have a great trip. We also enjoyed the delicious breakfasts and afternoon snacks. We ordered dinner in one night and ate in the dining room. Was a great experience. Highly recommend!

Aloha and thank you so much for your kind review of our Big Island Bed & Breakfast! We are thrilled you enjoyed our delicious gourmet breakfasts and afternoon sweets table (featuring homemade, fresh-baked treats like banana bread and chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies). Added by popular request, to-go dinners are a new addition to our offerings and we're so glad to hear it was a hit! Our chefs love showcasing local ingredients and our dining room already has one of the best views of the Kona Coast so it's the perfect spot to enjoy an evening meal. We're proud to have earned your recommendation and hope to welcome you back on your next trip to the Big Island. Mahalo nui loa, Your Holualoa Inn Ohana

After months of doing intensive elder care, we needed a brief respite. Holualoa Inn was ideal. Ina (sp?) made us feel so welcome the moment we pulled in the drive and treated us elegantly from that point on. The entire staff was friendly, helpful and really good at what they do (I'm thinking especially of chefs Julie and Sarah). Everyone mentions the amazing breakfasts; that's because they're amazing. We hope to return!

Aloha Nancy and thank you so much for your kind review of our Big Island Bed & Breakfast. We are so pleased we were able to host you for what sounds like much-deserved rest and rejuvenation. We want our inn to be synonymous with relaxation and to always be a place that you can return to for a recharge. It is our sincerest wish that when you are here you feel at home and we're delighted that Ina and the rest of the staff made you feel welcome. No bed and breakfast is complete without a delicious breakfast and we are so happy you enjoyed them during your stay. With options like banana pancakes, tropical huevos rancheros, and loaded avocado toast, chefs Julie and Sarah know how to keep people coming back for more. We're proud to have earned your recommendation and hope we get the chance to host you again on your next trip to the Big Island. Mahalo nui loa, Your Holualoa Inn Ohana

Beautiful. Comfortable. Fantastic base of operations. The views are unmatched! Just gorgeous. We stayed 5 nights. We actually spent a day or two just relaxing at the Inn. Take a walk around the whole property, and you can skip tours of island agricultural farms. Service was fantastic. Ina, Shawna, Audrey, and Rhonda were particularly helpful at every opportunity. Great breakfasts and coffee in the morning. Snacks later in the day. They do have an outdoor grill and frig for use, but realize that you will need to obtain lunch and dinner off site every day. In other words, the Inn is a super upscale bed-and-breakfast. There were others staying at the Inn, but other than breakfast, we didn't see others very often so it seemed like our own private resort! The island is big! Plan on driving 45 minutes to 1.5 hours everywhere, but this will likely be true any place that you stay. There was no air conditioning, but a fan in the room worked very well to keep us cool. Even if you are vaccinated (as we were), I’d recommend waiting on a trip to Hawaii until the Covid-related mandates are lifted, as they clearly diminished Hawaii’s “Aloha” spirit. Also, be aware that various amenities are missing and mask mandates are extensive, and extend even to the outdoors (truly, and in practice). You absolutely should not go if you are not vaccinated as most businesses will deny you entry.

I quite enjoyed my stay here. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. Some have really spectacular views of the ocean. Definitely stay in one of those if available. Breakfast was delicious and the innkeepers super friendly. Lots of amenities, like washer and dryer, to help pack light. Also really appreciated the snorkel gear and other beach equipment. Majorly helpful. Lastly, I liked being high up, not only for the view, but also for the decrease in temperature. Worth a stay if you want a quiet, contemplative retreat away from the hustle of the shore (which is a short drive ... very downhill ... away.)

Much mahalo for choosing Holualoa Inn for your Big Island vacation, and for writing this lovely review. Each of our accommodations is unique, beautifully appointed and offers something special. If not a spectacular ocean view then a private lanai, sitting room, full kitchen or exclusive hot tub. Whichever you choose, you are certain to have an extraordinary Hawaiian experience. We hope to welcome you home again in the future. A hui hou kakou, Kathryn and your Holualoa Inn Ohana

My husband and I stayed here for six nights and were so sad it wasn’t longer! The grounds are just breathtaking and very well kept, breakfast is incredibly delicious (and you get that Kona coffee!), innkeepers are all so friendly and helpful, the bed and room was comfy and lastly it was just a peaceful place to be! We felt very at peace during our stay and cannot wait to go back! If you are looking for a place to go that is away from the resorts this is it. It’s also magically 15 minutes away from just about everything. Hot tip - get barbecue from the food truck up the street - so good!

It's all about location. And it's true, we are just a short ride from beautiful beaches, delicious restaurants, unique shops and Big Island adventure. But when you are here at Holualoa Inn, you feel somehow secluded from everything, except one another. Congratulations on your marriage and mahalo for choosing Holualoa Inn for your honeymoon celebration. We appreciate this beautiful review and look forward to your return.

On a hillside in Hawaii, surrounded by splendid gardens, lush vegetation, early morning mist and evenings flush with the glow of sunset, sits the Holualoa Inn. Hands down the most relaxing, beautiful and thoughtfully designed experience to which we have ever been privy. Every detail speaks of calmness and of enjoyment. We stayed here for our much delayed honeymoon in April and could not have been gifted a more perfect and special location for this occasion. The staff was gracious and helpful, without being intrusive. It was as if we were in our own place with friends who would come by just to say hi and see if we needed anything. With all sincerity, we recommend this place. For anyone seeking stillness, beauty and quiet. For any couple wanting to experience something inspiring while sharing with only a few other lucky guests. If you can only afford the time or capital for one night, we wholeheartedly recommend this stay. P.S. Leave the windows open. Listen to the frogs and crickets as they go about their night, to settle you to sleep. Then, as the light expands into morning, the birds will sing and wake you to a new day.
