Hale Ho'ola B&B
Ranked #2 of 6 Honaunau B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 May 2012

When we knew we had the chance for a short hop to another island, we knew we wanted to stay with Mary and Bob again. Breakfast was wonderful. Mary's flowers and fresh fruits were in full bloom. And Bob made sure we saw the best secrets of the island in the short time we had for this visit.
As I mentioned, this is our second stay with Mary and Bob - the first was the result of their taking us in with our four kids when we couldn't remember the name of our prepaid B&B and didn't have our reservation confirmation! This time it was just the two of us. So whether you are looking for a comfortable place for your family to call home for a little while or a romantic and scenic get away retreat - this is it.
I hope we can come back with the kids again soon and rent out the entire first floor.

It was like staying at someone's grandparents basement. The room did not feel very clean. I found a dead cockroach in the bathroom. The bed was squeaky and could use new sheets, and more blankets. The roosters were pretty loud at 5am!

Breakfast was mediocre...they could serve more fresh fruits, and pastries. Although they had a local guy cook one day and he made delicious banana pancakes!

I wouldn't recommend this place...I would stay somewhere else when I go back to that part of the island.

The pictures you see of Hale Ho'ola B&B and the fabulous reviews you read are all true! Wonderful, roomy suite with private bath and porch/deck off of the room to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Wonderful breakfasts each morning and truly caring hosts. Bob and Mary are exceptional and we always felt special. We wanted something different for our first trip to Hawaii, and are so happy we chose Hale Ho'ola B&B.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here. On our 1st morning we had to leave by 7 am for a kayak/snorkeling trip. Mary delivered a lovely breakfast to us at 6:15 am. We enjoyed juice,coffee, fruit, and bacon, egg, & cheese "mcmuffins" all in to go packages. The next morning we had breakfast on the lanai with Mary & Bob. Mary prepared tropical pancakes, YUM!! Lots of delicious local fruit and coffee. Our room was comfy and we loved our little private porch that faced the nature behind the building.Bob provided us with wonderful restaurant options for lunch and dinner. A lovely place to stay!
