We stayed in the Gardenia suite, which is really like a small apartment with a living room and access to the gazebo deck atop the inn. We were welcomed with a cool drink and a tour of the inn. Absolutely spectacular views of Kona and the sunset. Situated on the side of the mountain in a little sleepy town, you... More

We stayed here for the last part of our honeymoon and we were blown away by everything the B&B has to offer. The service is exceptional from the check in by Kat through to the delicious breakfast prepared by Cristal. We hope to be back sometime soon!

I will forever be comparing bed and breakfasts to the Holualoa because it was so incredibly luxurious and comfortable. The attention to detail is what truly sets them apart. There are many examples - an extra blanket in the room and extras in the common areas for chilly nights, fuzzy socks and bathrobes in the room, earplugs in the nightstand... More

This is a great place for some indulgence and tranquility. My thoughts on this are consistent with the majority of the reviews on this site. I typically stay at resorts on the beach so this was a bit of a gamble but it was well worth it. You could sit and read by the pool with a few drinks without... More

This is an very up market small boutique hotel. It was someone's home once (I think he was editor of the Hawaiian newspaper).

Charming, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Outstanding breakfast mostly from ingredients/fruit on property. Served with the best coffee we've ever had. Quiet with beautiful panoramic views of the island and ocean. Cool breezes at night and morning, even in July. Not hot like Kona, which is 10 minutes away. Nice grounds for walking in the morning. Only 12 minutes from the airport.... More
