We wanted to stay in the Hilo area and selected the Hale Makamae B&B because they offered a two bedroom suite for a very reasonable price. Petra and John's accomodations were excellent, with delicious breakfasts and great suggestions for day trips in the area. I especially enjoyed seeing Petra's large collection of unusual orchids. The highlight of our stay was...

My friend and I stayed at Hale Makamae for three nights at the end of December 2010. The B&B's owners made us feel welcomed and gave us great advice on how to make the most of our time on the Big Island. Their warmth and friendliness, together with the beauty of the nature surrounding the B&B made the trip a...

My biggest wishes for my 3 night Big Island stay were: 1) warm and gracious hosts 2) rain forest feel with beach close by 3) easy access to active lava flow 4) nearby, but not necessarily in Hilo 5) low cost 6) yummy food ....I encountered all of that and so much more at Hale Makamae. My trip just wouldnt...

Nice place to stay for viewing lava from volcano. The room was nice with a kitchen and two bedrooms. Only one bathroom. The lanai overlooked a great garden. The frogs were loud at night but not unpleasent.

Judy and I enjoyed our visit immensely and would, and have, highly recommended this B&B to our friends. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and our hosts were most pleasant and helpful, welcoming and gracious. Petra pointed out many local sites, tours and restaurants available in the area, things you don't see or might miss in the brochures. Her breakfast was...

Perta and John were great hosts. We had to work one evening, and they let us use the breakfast area and wireless internet. We enjoyed visiting with them and the other guests that came through over the evening. We learned a lot about the area and things we should see.

Excellent room, great breakfasts, incredible local knowledge. Refreshing compared to the commercialized books and pamphlets that litter Hawaiian hotels and tourist areas. Out of the way, but in a good way. But are the birds ever noisy!

This is as quaint and peaceful as you can get. John and Petra are fantastic hosts and take very good care of their property and guests. The nightime sounds of the jungle were hipnotic I could not have wished for anything better. Breakfast was awsome and there is a town not far and easy to find with cool small shops...
