We have been fortunate to have travelled to so many wonderful destinations during the last two decades, and have mainly had good to great experiences with our accomodations. With our busy schedules it is not often that we are able to take the time to write a review.
Our most recent stay at Hale Makamae B & B, however, was one of those rare, outstanding experiences which we feel we really need to share with our fellow travellers. Tucked away in a lush, subtropical corner of paradise, surrounded by gardens lovingly planted and tended by Petra and John, our hosts, the beauty and serenity of Hale Makamae can not adequately be described in our review, but rather needs to be experienced. The location is also ideal. It is a short ride from Hilo, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the lava flows, a natural hot pool, and great snorkelling and white and black sand beaches, as well as other interesting things to do and see. Upon our arrival we were greeted as if we were long time friends or family. They took the time to get to know what we wanted to do while staying there and point us in the right direction. They lent us maps with the routes highlighted and snorkelling equipment. They know the area very well and were an invaluable resource to us. They made our experience on Hawaii Island much richer. Petra prepared a fabulous breakfast with hot as well as cold foods each morning, including an assortment of fresh island grown fruits and hot Kona coffee. We only arrived home from our vacation last night and have already recommended Hale Makamae to several friends. We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Hawaii.
