This B&B was awesome. Len, the owner, was gracious when we showed up early and allowed us to leave our luggage at the Harmony House until we could return later in the day. Lexie was taking care of the house when we left the luggage and she even put the luggage in our rooms when the rooms were ready. The next morning Lea was gracious and fixed a wonderful breakfast. My nephew enjoyed the macadamia nut waffles. Eggs were cooked to perfection and the coffee was fabulous. She have us lots of information about the area and a great map of the Big Island. The downstairs room in the Harmony house had a Sleep Number bed. The linens were luxurious.

The sound of the waterfall outside the Harmony House was the perfect white noise for sleep. The peace and quiet of the B&B was welcome and we will definitely will be staying at this location on a future visit to the Big Island.

We will definitely stay here on a future trip to the Big Island.

Brilliant location, the room was very nice overlooking the Fall. it also had a balcony with the same view. the hosts are very helpful. the bed was comfortable, plenty to do and well kept grounds that will make you forget about going back to work. breakfast made to order and it is better than alot of high end hotels. everything on the East coast is an hours driving distance. forget about any other places in Hilo or surroundings, This is the place to stay.

Room Tip: stay in the main house, upstairs, in the room that overlooks the Falls.

What a really lovely setting this is and everyone was so friendly and relaxed. The rooms are very comfortable and it's magical to have the waterfall just out the window. We were able to have a swim on one day and this was a special experience if a little challenging. All the staff were really great and the breakfast something to look forward to each morning (particularly the waffles). I especially enjoyed the yoga class so would highly recommend that during a stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the falls if you can.

True you can travel the Big Island and see some amazing waterfalls. But how about having what seems like your own private waterfall where you can explore the grounds, read a book buy it, watch it from your balcony and fall asleep to its roar. This is waht you get at the Inn. A relaxing, breathtaking joy for my wife and I. Not only are the grounds fanatastic but also the staff and the breakfast.

Room Tip: Pick the Maile room as it is closest to the waterfall with a great little balcony for two overlookin...

We enjoyed the B&B, the falls, the breakfast, the staff, the walk. Lea was knowledgeable about the surroundings and the culture. She provided a very tasty, nutritious, and abundant breakfast.

We stayed here for two night with our 20 and 14 yr old girls! We all enjoyed the property and the quietness of the location! We got a chance to swim in the water fall and really enjoyed our yummy breakfast. I would highly recommend this inn.

This place is a fantastic hideaway whether you want to be alone with that special someone or with your family. There is something for everyone at this waterfall retreat. Beautiful grounds, nicely decorated rooms, great breakfast and a welcoming staff. Len and Jane and their staff (including Coco the standard poodle) have made this inn a diamond in the rough! Worth getting off the beaten track for.
