My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in late December. This was our second stay at Hale Ho’onanea. Melanie and Bruce are friendly hosts and do a great job managing their B&B. The area is very peaceful with good views of the ocean. It is also a great location for watching the sunset and star gazing at night. We stayed in the Bamboo Suite which is very clean and spacious. We always have a relaxing stay here. The bed and fluffy pillows are very comfy. The bathroom is very clean and has a spacious shower. The large fluffy bath towels are great. Breakfast is good and is provided in a basket the day before. This is great for us since it allows us to have breakfast whenever we like. Breakfast includes freshly baked delicious homemade bread (varies by day), fresh tropical fruit (pineapple or papaya), cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, juice, coffee (or tea if you prefer), and milk (Melanie is happy to provide skim milk if you prefer). Snacks are also included (microwave popcorn and macadamia nuts). Hale Ho’onanea is an excellent value for the Big Island. We will definitely continue to stay here. In fact, we have already booked our next stay!
