We quite enjoyed our 3 night stay in the Lanai Suite at Hale Moana Bed & Breakfast! The suite was quite spacious and my son was thrilled with having his own little bedroom tucked away under the eaves. Hale Moana is a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, we never felt unsafe out in the countryside, even late in the evening. Petra made us feel very welcome, and spent time at breakfast going over maps of the area and recommending places we may want to visit. Speaking of breakfast, it was quite delicious, and she even accommodated our son by making him French toast again on our third day! (he still talks about the French toast)
The location of the bed and breakfast was very convenient - only a short drive to the Lava Boat Ocean Tours (the lava was still flowing in August and it was spectacular!), an hour or so drive to Volcanoes National Park (also worth the trip), dining and shops in the little town of Pahoa, and many other attractions close by.
We also enjoyed listening to the coqui frogs at night - it felt like we were in a tropical rainforest, although i'm sure it gets annoying to the locals - and it was fun spotting the little geckos as they scampered across our lanai! The view from our wrap-around balcony was quite impressive - gardens as far as the eye could see.
Please do not hesitate to stay at Hale Moana - you will not regret it!
