Our Guests Say
This is my second time staying at this lovely inn. It feels comfortable and welcoming. It is seasoned and has been here for a number of years. A bird feeder draws a host of beautiful birds that one can watch in the morning while eating breakfast. The Lanai is a wonderful place to visit with both staff and other guests. Breakfast is generous and you can choose what you want. Everyone is quick to ask if there is anything you need or what might make you even more comfortable. I enjoy staying here and look forward to my next visit whenever that may be. Located close to Holualoa it is surrounded by trees and other houses tucked into lush yards. It is about 10 minutes to Kailua Kona. I was pleasantly surprised how much business I could get done using the Inn as a base. The wi fi connection was great. I could locate the places I needed to be and quickly get all over town. Our first visit here we stayed for two weeks so it feels a bit like coming home to a home away from home. I am pleased to recommend this Inn to anyone who is coming here for business or pleasure with your entire family or by yourself. A great resource for travelers. -- Judy Reviewed : July 11, 2017 TripAdvisor
A house of peace and friendship
We just spent our 50th wedding anniversary at the Hale Maluhia on Kona. Breakfast begins with residents drinking coffee, getting acquainted and cooking together in the kitchen. It's a country inn in the hills above kona. Roosters, wild turkeys, birds provide the sound effects. Owner on the premises, great staff. We did not get mosquito bites,. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, great showers. Kitty C. Denver, Colorado Reviewed : January 2016, TripAdvisor
Charming vacation destination
My son and I had a lovely two days together at the Four Seasons, but I did regret having to give up my last two days at your country inn. My time spent at Hale Maluhia was a true delight. Choosing vacation destinations over the internet is quite a gamble, but I was definitely not disappointed. The staff was always pleasant and helpful, the surroundings so peaceful and beautiful, my room was very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was "over the top". I would love to return. Sally M.
