Ala Kai has a wonderful 2 bedroom & 1 bath separate house behind the main house. Patio, pool, BBQ, washer dryer, full kitchen and living room. Stayed with our Son, daughter in-law and 16 month old Grandson. Was perfect for the family to meet up and spend some quality time. Close to town, wonderful zoo and volcano to visit. The... More

This is a beautiful home in the rain/fern forest, with a pool, parking, ocean view, and fruit trees. Mary provides beach towels, sunscreen, water, local literature, and expert local information. She is unobtrusive but available--knows when to offer assistance and when to stay away. My husband and I and our adult son spent 2 nights in the 2-bedroom suite inside... More

My third time staying at the Ala Kai. Mary is a great Inkeeper and hostess. My breakfasts were delightful and its always interesting to visit with the other guests. Sitting on the porch with that fantastic ocean view is very relaxing as well. My first time in the Bamboo Room and loved it.

4 adults enjoyed the 2 bedroom cottage for 2 nights. It had everything we needed and more! Extra sunscreen, ziplock baggies for our snacks, and even a hose outside to clean our muddy shoes and pants from a 4 hour jungle hike! The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows and two fans in every room. 1 bathroom was adequate... More

My family stayed in the cottage four nights on the second half of our big island vacation. It is very private in a rainforest-like setting, including coqui frogs at night and birds in the morning. We enjoyed the sound but they provide ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. The kitchen was well equipped and we used the BBQ... More

We were received warmly. Enjoyed three breakfasts on the wonderful lanai. Quiet and peaceful location from which you can easily access Hilo, Volcanoes or the east shoreline. We would happily book again.

What are you looking for? This is not a fancy B&B in a historic mansion with gourmet brunch and antiques. And although there is a pool, don't look for a beach and tiki bar. What it has is a very pleasant veranda, perfectly clean rooms, a tasty breakfast featuring lots of fresh tropical fruit - and a spectacular seascape of... More

You start your morning enjoying a delightful breakfast with fellow travelers, while enjoying a incredible view of the ocean. After breakfast, take a walk along the volcanic cliff side along the ocean, maybe you will get lucky and see whales traveling along the Hilo coast line. We stayed in the Bamboo room, very clean and comfortable with a wonderful bathroom.... More

From the front porch where sumptuous breakfasts were served, we basked in the grandeur of the ocean and the crashing waves on the cliffs below. Our gracious hostesses were so welcoming and helpful in providing road recommendations and activities, restaurants in the Volcano area.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life then this is the place to stay. You won't be able to get to the beach there either but there is a pool and places to see are just a short drive away. Highly recommended if you are still "thinking about it". I wanted to steal... More
