“Made to feel at home!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

After a long day of hiking at the Volcano, my husband and I felt welcome and right at home at the Ohia House. Cindy and Rick were excellent hosts - - greeting us from the minute we pulled into the driveway. The room was well appointed and included many thoughtful "extras" including a reusable bag for us to keep after our stay. Breakfast was one of our best of our entire the trip - - and it was served on our screened in porch that was adjoined to our room - - a very relaxing way to start the day! Overall - an excellent stay. We wish we could have stayed longer.

After a long day driving and site seeing, the Ohia House was a welcome retreat. Cindy and Rick were there to welcome us as soon as we drove up the driveway. Cindy suggested a great restaurant for dinner (Kaleo's) which even gave us a 10% discount for being guests at the Ohia House. The room was clean, spacious and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. Cindy chatted with us and gave us some good advise for our next destination on the island. Great location for us as we were taking a helicopter tour from Hilo the next morning. So we only had a quick drive to get there. The grounds are very pretty too. Would definitely recommend this B&B!

Ohia House is by far the best B&B we have ever enjoyed. we spent a week with Rick and Cindy it was the highlight of our trip! The room was more than we expected, complete with beach towels, snorkle gear, a cooler for our use, and umbrellas which we welcomed on rainy days. The area surrounding the house is a botanical garden itself, filled with tropical plants and flowers, especially orchids of all colors. it is most beautiful! Rick and Cindy were very helpful hosts in suggesting things to see and do on the island, giving us directions how to get there. The food was absolutely outstanding, Cindy saving the best til last, serving the most wonderful French Toast!!! Plus frest tropical fruit each day,mango, pineapple,papaya and lechee grown in their own back yard. It was indeed a wonderful experience, both relaxing and educational. Thank you Rick and Cindy for a vacation we will cherish forever!!!

Room Tip: Since there is only one room available at this B&B, it gives you a very private and special stay...

Cindy and Rick obviously enjoy running a B & B, and they make you feel very welcome. The room was wonderful, with everything we needed (plus more). Cindy chatted with us at breakfast every morning, giving us tips and sharing stories. We asked tons of questions and she happily answered them all. The food was delicious, we looked forward to it every morning. We stayed at a condo on the other side of the island after staying here, and we felt much more comfortable at the Ohia House. Wish we would have stayed there all week instead!

We stayed with Rick and Cindy for two nights and had a wonderful time. We really appreciated Cindy's tips on where to go and what to do - she even kindly researched information about where to view the transit of Venus for us. We also thought that they were incredibly thoughtful about our entire stay - from the way the room was laid out and its comfort, to the delicious breakfasts that Cindy served.

Stay here if you want to enjoy the lush beauty of the big island and ambience of the forest in a peaceful and secluded setting.

We stayed for three nights at the Ohia House and it was such a wonderful, private, and relaxing experience! Cindy was so kind and thoughtful, she gave us many tips on where to go, what activities to do in the area, where to eat, etc. We did everything she said, and had an amazing time! Her breakfasts were gourmet! The banana and macademia nut souffle was incredible - her creative egg baskets were so yummy - and her amazing baked french toast! Plus an abundance of pineapple, mango, papaya, and litchi grown in her backyard. Definitely the best food we had during our stay in the Big Island and Oahu. The room was very private and the lanai was so nice to sit in during the morning. Thank you Cindy for a most wonderful stay - truly the highlight of our trip

Definitely the best place we've stayed in the islands. We were there for 6 days and enjoyed all of them. Cindy and Rick were great hosts and Cindy fixed perfect breakfasts. Her help with things to do and places to go and eat was invaluable! This retreat makes the perfect base of operations and we really did feel right at home. We left friends and would love to come back!
