“Wonderful experience at Hale Ho'ola”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2013

Spent 3 nights in the Palm Room. Spacious, comfortable, clean. B&B has coolers, beach mats, boogie boards, towels and assorted goodies for guests to use. Warm, homey enviornment. It's like you are visiting your Auntie Mary and Uncle Bob. Nice private lanai with great view. It's fun seeing the wildlife cruise through the nearby ranch. And Marys breakfast...excellent, you will have a full belly for your daily excursions. Bob gets you the daily weather report for the island and gives good tips on restaurants and beaches.

We stayed in the Palm room which was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the outside balcony that had a view of the nature area and a distant view of the ocean and came with a small refrigerator.. We saw wild boar, cows, chickens and tons of birds. Mary and Bob the owners are very nice and ready to help you with info on places to eat and things to see. You feel like family right away. Breakfast was wonderful. Mary gave tours of her garden which was very interesting to us from Az. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The Palm room does have a step up shower/tub that may be hard for an older person to get into.

We thoroughly enjoyed the two nights we stayed in the Plumeria Suite. Mary and Bob are gracious friendly hosts. Everyone gathered for breakfast on the upstairs deck and Mary fixed a fresh breakfast each morning. The selection of fruit and the fresh squeezed juice were wonderful! Mary let another guest and me pick some fruit from their trees for breakfast. It turned out we had picked lemons, so Mary made us lemonade to take with us that day. Bob added to our breakfast conversations and our visits together with the other guests made a great start to the day.
I found the sound of the tree frogs very relaxing at night, and the animals near by just add to the pleasure and adventure of the trip. We were thrilled to see what we call the GEICO geckos that would visit at breakfast in the morning. I have added pictures, so you can also see the common area Bob and Mary have if guests are looking for a place to visit with one another in the evening. There was also a small refrigerator on our private lanai. They really seem to have gone out of their way to provide what you may need or want on your vacation.

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights on January 2013. We found this place very nice, comfortable bed, the room clean, with a nice relaxing patio. We saw different kind of birds. Bob and Mary made as feel like family. The breakfast was good, fresh juice, delicious coffee.... and a nice view from the terrace. Bob gave us very good and detailed information about the restaurants near the area. Thank you Bob and Mary, I really recommend it....

We spend two nights with Mary and Bob. As was one of our best B n B stays on Big Island. Nice view and a huge terrace to join the breakfast. The breakfast itself was great, fresh fruits and fresh prepared ham and eggs etc. They both were friendly and helpful in all kind of ways. Love to go there again.

My husband and I stayed with Bob and Mary for several days. The room was very comfortable, and we enjoyed having a private lanai to sit outside without being in a public space. We also appreciated that there were some items for guest use, such as coolers and beach boards, that we would not have been able to bring with us.
Breakfast was great for me, with coffee/tea, fresh fruit and a main dish. My husband, who is used to a larger breakfast, would have preferred a bit more at times.
I see a lot of people commenting on the animals in the area, but we thoroughly enjoyed watching the wild pigs from the back and loved seeing the geckos come around each morning.
The B&B is a bit remote, so you will do a bit of driving even for dinner.

We spent 13 days with Bob and Mary. The B&B is about 20 miles south of Kona – what we loved, because you escape the oh so touristy areas. Just three rooms means quite a family feeling not only during breakfast on the beautiful lanai. The breakfast is good – fresh, fruit, fresh Kona coffee and every morning something else – freshly baked.

And all you need to know, where to go, what to see and whom to book ... Bob shares his knowledge with his guests.

We enjoyed our stay very much. If it would not be a 27 hour journey away we would be back very soon.
