“I love the place”
Reviewed December 16, 2007

Date Dec 16 2007
We have just return from a trip to Hawaii visiting 4 islands staying in 3 in B&B inns. Our stay in Hale Maluhia was the most pleasant stay as we enjoined the beautiful place and the pleasant hospitality of the Smiths. I don't think we will be able to make another trip to Hawaii as it is far away (and expensive) but if I do, Hale Maluhia will be the place to stay.

We stayed five nights at the inn. Every one was very nice, quiet and comfortable. The owner was always very helpful and the breakfast buffet was wonderful and the view from the lanai of the birds and the plants at the water fountain was great. One morning we had some White Pineapple and it was fantastic. The room was very nice and clean. We had reserved a room that was not available because of repairs so the owner gave us a more expensive one at the same price. We would highly recommend this inn.

  • Liked — Breakfasts
  • Disliked — Not conducive to walking around in the area because of no sidewalks

A special treat to stay at the Hale Maluhia Country Inn in Kona,
Hawaii. We enjoyed visiting with the owner, Ken, and hearing about the Big Island. Our room was exceptionally well decorated and this owner built home had all of the extra's for guests. The woodwork in the home was fabulous and lanai overlooking lush, landscaped grounds made for a peaceful setting. It was a relaxing time over a homemade bread/fruit breakfast and in good company. I would recommend this B&B anytime.

We just returned from our holiday in Hawaii and wspecially enjoyed our two night stay at this quality B and B. We stayed in the Malia room which was nicely furnished with lots of windows and opened onto a private terrace with covered table. While there was no airconditioning the ceiling fan was adequate. The breakfast was outstanding and was served on a lovely linai overlooking the coffee belt area. Hosts, Ken and Sue Smith were very cordial and helpful. They recommended a great little local Japanese resturant (Teshima's) which was a great tip. Next year we plan to spend more time at the Hale Maluhia.

Beautiful property located up in the mountains just above the beach. Awesome landscape. Check out the cottage up by itself. Very peaceful and quiet. This was our second trip there and we have thoroughly enjoyed them both.

This is the best hotel bargain I have ever experienced. The small inn is on the side of Hualalai Crater in a secluded nook. It has all the beauty of Hawaii and the comforts of home. I was here on business, but it felt like a vacation. I remained here for one week and enjoyed every minute. I highly recommend Hale Maluhia.

Right from the beginning, they welcomed me with amazing hospitality. I stayed at the Maile Room($75/night, great deal). It's a good size for 1 or 2, private bathroom and shower, they offer beachtowels and matts too. Great for those who don't feel like doing the extra packing. The Inn is surrounded with so much nature, but a convenient distance from downtown, beach and stores. The best part of the Inn was their Lanai, where you can enjoy your breakfast. It's a wooden deck looking out into their garden and you can enjoy all sorts of wild birds come through. The view is just amazingly peaceful and you could sit there for hours. They also have rooms that have their own kitchen unit, which is good for those who want to stay longer. Ken and Sue will greet you with ohana(family) love. It truly is Hale Maluhia (House of Peace).

  • Liked — The people were so warm.
  • Disliked — I would reccommend renting a car, it makes travelling a lot smoother.
