I am going to admit- I mostly booked this place because many reviews mentioned the amazing breakfasts and they sounded too good to pass up. We were not disappointed!! Elma cooks up an amazing spread with local coffee (you are in coffee country after all), amazing fresh fruit, muffins, juice.... etc. On top of that you get to enjoy it... More

We stood there 3 nights in May 2015 and it was a very pleasant stay. Carl and Elma are very caring. The rooms are clean and there's a beautiful view to the ocean. We loved watching the sunset from our own balcony. Every morning Elma prepared a very delicious breakfast and there was always coffee, tea and juices. We would... More

While traveling around the Island, Hale Ho'ola B&B provided the perfect stop on our way from Volcano National Park to Kona. Our room, which was clean and comfortable, had a private lanai and was furnished with everything to make our visit complete. Carl and Elma went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcomed in their home.... More

This B&B had everything we wanted. Good sleep, good breakfast, good views, and wonderful hosts. Coffee was excellent and always available. We especially enjoyed breakfast on the lanai with views of the ocean. Carl and Elma went above and beyond what was expected. Carl even let us use his snorkel equipment to snorkel at Two Step. Saw many tropical fish... More

Very decently priced B&B run by especially helpful and accommodating owners. Particular highlight: the scenic beachfront breakfast on the sunny porch (you can watch colourful geckos cleaning up the remainders of your guave juice 😀). Carl gave us priceless insights into the top local snorkeling spots and beaches - thanks to that we even had the opportunity to swim with... More

My wife and I stayed a week at Hale-Hoola after being on Kauai'i for a week. Elma and Carl are the perfect hosts, both interesting and great sense of humor. Elma is turning Hale-Hoola into a flora wonderland. The property already has papaya and bananas. We lingered at breakfast enjoying other guests in addition to Elma and Carl. Our room... More

This was our second visit to Hale Ho'ola B&B and we didn't think twice before coming here. The home is immaculate, the hosts (Carl & Elma) are very kind and welcoming, offering a delicious breakfast each morning of our 8 day stay. The beaches are nearby and we enjoyed snorkelling with Spinner Dolphins, turtles, eels and colourful fish. We would... More

A quiet stop on the south highway with ocean view & accommodating hosts! The new owners have quickly achieved a lovely retreat. We stayed for four nights & greatly enjoyed the breakfasts & the service provided by the hosts.

This might very well be the first review new owners Carl and Elma are receiving. My wife and I stayed at Hale Ho’ola the first week of 2016, which happened to be the week Carl and Elma were taking over responsibility for this B&B from now former long-time owners Bob and Mary. With the full slate of guests, it could... More
