Mary and Bob are very nice couple. It was lovely to see them. Mary cooks delicious breakfast every morning. They have beautiful garden in the nature & told us lots of useful information: Especially she gave me the best yoga studio !:.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny.

Adequate room. The real stars here are the gorgeous grounds and wonderful breakfasts with beautiful views and personal family-like service. We also really appreciated all the beach gear available for borrowing.

This B & B is a perfect example of how the innkeeper can make one's stay an experience not to be forgotten. Our room was nice, particularly due to the lanai, which overlooks the setting sun on the Pacific. Just below our porch, 'wild' cows mooed and wild pigs snorted and came curiously to peer through the fence. Gorgeous, lush foliage and fruit trees surrounded us. But meeting and spending time with Mary was by far the highlight of this B & B. Interesting, positive, and generous in her outlook, breakfast was a delicious but also entertaining affair. A wonderful part of any visit to the Big Island!

Room Tip: Our room, 'The Plumeria', was the only one without a 'real' bathroom door, which I d...

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Hale Ho'ola at the end of October and couldn't have been more content with everything about our visit. Mary and Bob are genuinely hospitable people, down to earth, fun, helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our time with them. Beds were very comfortable, which is key for us -- my husband's bad back makes us pretty picky about that. We also found it was a location that really suited us. There's lots to explore nearby, good restaurants, historic sites, beaches ... We would love to go back and would definitely recommend Hale Ho'ola.

We loved everything about the Hale Ho'ola. The picture of the front of the bed and breakfast doesn't do justice the beauty of all the tropical vegetation in the front and around Hale Ho'ola. It is just beautiful, so many colors. We arrived after dark the first evening. We were welcomed by a chorus of birds we thought but found out it was tiny frogs. We easily found our room. We found everything we needed. So enjoyed the private lanai with a view of the ocean. Mary and Bob made us all feel so welcome the next morning. We breakfasted on their deck one story up. What a gorgeous view. Breakfast was delicious, just what you would hope for-- local fruit, interesting conversation, tasty food, pleasant company, relaxing environment, and more. The morning we needed to leave before breakfast, Mary provided a delicious packed breakfast. Bob was so knowledgeable about what to see. He even provided maps. Hale Ho'ola was a relaxing and comfortable ending to each day of driving and venturing on the Big Island. We definitely would stay there again.

My husband and I are from California and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hale Ho'ola. Mary baked and prepared a delicious breakfast each morning with fresh fruit including papaya and star fruit picked from their trees and, of course, a bottomless pot of local Kona coffee!. We ate under an umbrella on their deck looking out over a tropical garden while enjoying the company of our friendly, interesting and knowledgeable hosts, along with the other guests from Switzerland and Japan and the colorful geckos! A small refrigerator was provided and most appreciated. It allowed us to chill a bottle of white wine that was enjoyed while watching the sunset over the tropical paradise from our private lanai (Bob supplied the perfect wine glasses). We ate at the restaurants and drove the routes around the island Bob suggested and were never disappointed. Mahalo nui loa for a lovely experience!

Room Tip: All three rooms are on the same side and look to the west allowing a perfect view of the sunset. Ea...

Bob and Mary - the perfect blend of host and ambassador.
Perfect fresh-baked Scones, a fantastic ocean sunset view from both their deck and our personal lanai, fresh native fruits, estate-blended PURE KONA coffee.................we could go on and on.
Spiritually, Bob's recovery from a broken back suffered over a year back doesn't stop him from offering up maps, guide book as well as personal tips during a breakfast as perfect as we could ever have hoped for.
This family's goodwill goes beyond these few words .........a 2 room common area with accessories including sunscreen, boogie boards and beach towels.
Last and far from least................a breakfast show every day by the official Hale-Ho'ola Gecko troupe..........see the pic below............Mahalo!!!!

Room Tip: Our room had a sunken tub.........perhaps an item of interest
