The Big Island of Hawaii
Kona is a very special Pacific recreational paradise on the dry side of the Big Island of Hawaii with world class beaches, historical sites, world class fishing and, of course, the Volcano 100 miles south. Kailua-Kona was the place of choice for the Alii (King and Queens) of old Hawai'i choose to live on the sunny leeward side of the Big Island of Hawaii. The Big Island has 11 out of 14 world climates from being dryer than a desert in some parts to being a cold 300 inch tropical rain forest in others. The Volcano Area can be a very cold, 200 inch rain forest at the 4,000 ft. elevation so best to pick a good day by satellite when visiting the Volcano. Takes about 5 hours to drive completely around the Big Island of Hawaii.

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

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

Charming vacation destination

tripadvisor star rating Reviewed: January 2016, TripAdvisor

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.

Our Inn is located in the heart of one of the worlds best climates at a 940 foot elevation in the Holualoa Kona Coffee Country fruit belt. Yet only minutes to beaches, stores, shops and fine dining. Our Inn is only 3 miles to both the historical village of Kailua Kona and the art community of Holualoa if interested in Hawaiian Arts. Also the Inn is also only about 20 minutes south of the Kona International Airport (KOA) which is an easy 11 miles north of the Inn.
