The advantages for the Aloha Guest House is that the veiw and furnishing are quite nice and about what we expected for the price. It was a very comfortable bed. Everything looked clean and impressive. The service was superb. Very quite and peaceful.

The hosts went beyond what is expected to make us feel welcome and even helped us pick movies to watch in our room. Wonderful coffee is available at all times. The house is up in the hills and has a wild feel to it, and is a short drive to the City of Refuge sights. Really cute family dog which helped pull in our bags when we arrived.

We stayed two days which was perfect. Very comfortable and nice accomodation.

However, what the others say about the drive up to the house is true. The view at the top is worth it. But, the "road" is a bit harrowing, especially in the dark. In fact coming back in pitch black one night, we thought we were headed up the wrong drive way and tried to turn around and hit some rocks and scaped the paint on the rental car bumper. We are still expecting to get the bill.

We brought back bar-b-que one night so we didn't have to manage he road in the dark. Places to eat are about 8 miles away and you will need to plan to the extra time to get there. Again, we wanted to stay up in the hills to see what is was like, of course we had to drive to dinner. Traffic on the main road was jamed at rush hour.

A notebook in the room says that guests are permitted to sun bath or use the hot tub in the nude. This is a gay friendly place.

We enjoyed our room and stay at the Guest House and a chance to explore rural Captain Cook area. Beautiful place.

During the day, our room had a gorgeous view of the south Kona coastline framed by plants on the B&B's property. At night, it was an inky black sky with stunning stars that you could see from bed.

There are lots of great things about the Aloha Guest House, but what I really loved was their stock of beach and snorkeling accessories. No need to bring beach towels or mats or fins or... even kayaks. They have them.

Everything else was great. Delicious breakfast. Super-friendly inn-keepers. A sweet dog named Mango.

My husband and I recently spent four nights at the Aloha Guest House. Our room -- with canopied bed, high thread count sheets, and stunning view of the Pacific/Honaunau/Captain Cook's Monument -- far surpassed our expectations. Johann, Lino and Greg are fabulous hosts. Breakfast plates each day are creative, tasty and HUGE. And the coffee, roasted especially for the Guest House, well, let's just say we took advantage of the "open coffee bar" throughout our stay! We spent our mornings swapping stories with our hosts and other guests -- folks from all over the US/EU. We also enjoyed morning walks through the fruit trees with Mango, the resident pooch. Perhaps best of all, though, is the shared lanai. We caught a few sunsets and napped in the early evenings on the comfy daybed perched at the deck's edge. Very nice, indeed.

What a great place to just kick back! As is the case with most of us, vacation time is difficult to come by and choosing the most condusive spot for relaxation is even more difficult. This B&B was just the fix! A quaint and remote location, with a FABULOUS view and serene atmosphere. I stayed in the Kohola room, which had such a spectacular view of the land and ocean, and the advantage of elevation. The room itself was very spacious, including a king size bed with an abundance of window views - allowing for breathtaking sunrises and sunsets! Being a young, active woman, I thoroughly enjoyed my early morning runs down to the water and then returning up the slightly elevated climb with guava and avocado in hand. I was then delighted, upon my return, with a gourmet and hearty breakfast. The hosts, Johann, Greg and Lino, were friendly and very professional. I felt a particular affinity with Lino, who had such a wonderfully calm nature to him, which was reflected not only in his conversation, but also in his piano playing and displayed paintings. I have to also mention the COFFEE... there is a 24 hr coffee bar available which is DELICIOUS! Being a regular AM coffee drinker, this was a treat in itself and I couldn't resist more than one cup at breakfast.

All in all, if you're looking for a retreat from the the rest of the world, this is a great place to go. I felt rejuvinated and energized to return back to the daily grind and sink myself back into the structure of LIFE.

We scheduled a weekend getaway to the Big Island staying at the Aloha Guest House. We were VERY impressed with the amenities and upgrade in décor since our last visit about five years ago. Our room was very comfortable and airy with access to a wonderful cozy screened in lanai. Our accommodations rivaled, even surpassed any I’ve experienced in name brand hotels on the mainland.
In addition, the hospitality of our hosts, Greg, Johann and Lino were icing on the cake. Delicious breakfast each morning punctually served with Kona coffee. The “r and r” was just what we were looking for. This was all capped with a stunning sweeping view of the ocean (westerly view, sunsets). You can actually see the curvature of the earth on that huge horizon.
Highly recommended.
