This November, my husband and I spent two very comfortable nights in Hale Hualalai B&B. Thanks to the reviews, we found the property, which is tucked off a winding road and down a long driveway. The rooms were spacious, the balconies and views spectacular, and the breakfasts contained enough calories to fuel an entire day -- but were delicious. We brought home coffee for all our family members from the working coffee farm, and all the breakfasts featured local fruits. We enjoyed meeting the young German couple from other second room and conversation with Ricky was lively. My only suggestion is that coffee be available for the guests a little earlier in the morning. The rooms had an electric tea kettle, but no coffee pods or even tea. That would have been a nice touch. We would stay here again if our travels take us to the Big Island. As a footnote: One advantage to the long winding road that we had to traverse to get back to the B&B was that we went light on wine at dinner!

Our stay was perfect in every way--Ricky is the perfect host and provided excellent advice about places to visit tailored to our interests. The room was beautiful and well appointed and the breakfast simply superb. The gorgeous tropical setting, especially when enjoyed in the evening on the lovely private porch, was a delight!

We enjoyed a 10 day stay in this lovely place. The two suites available are very large and nicely designed. The included gourmet breakfast is wonderful and prepared personally by Rickie, who in a prior life was a chef at Huggo's and the Four Seasons. Included was fresh Kona coffee grown on site and wonderful conversations during and after breakfast with Rickie. The grounds are alive with all manner of domesticated and not-so-tame animals. You will really appreciate the cool mornings and evenings at this 2000ft elevation high above Kailua-Kona and Keahou Bay. The view of the ocean far below will be truly appreciated as you watch the lovely sunsets. Not perfect, but you will truly appreciate the effort that Rickie and his wife Irina make for your visit.

Room Tip: Two rooms, both large and identical

Hey Len,
This is a very kind review. I really appreciate it.
I hope that you made back home and everything is safe, with the dam and the flooding and all the snow up in Tahoe. If all else fails, we got a coffee shack in the trees for ya! ;)
Thanks again,
Ricky and the family

Unfortunately we can't attest to the breakfast, but the rooms we definitely can. We were excited to stay three nights but as soon as we walked in my wife's mold allergy kicked in something fierce. I did a sweep of the room and there was mold around the bathroom sink, shower, and under the mini-fridge. I a sure other places as well.

I can see this being a problem because there isn't any air conditioning in the room and I don't think there is enough circulation, but that is besides the fact.

We also realized rather quickly that the resident roosters would be keeping us up all night and morning.

We immediately arranged for other lodging and left the key in the main house because we couldn't find anyone to explain the situation to. We realized that we probably wouldn't get any type of refund, but an apology would have been nice instead of the reply of "yea, right on. have a good trip guys." Seriously, that is all we got back from our email explaining the situation.

Beware to folks in general, but especially to those with any type of allergy.

A private room with a balcony that feels like your own apartment nested in the hillside of Hualalai. A little difficult to find late at night, but so worth it! Amazing view of Kona as you enjoy your coffee and delicious breakfast. The host made us feel so welcome and helped us narrow down our long list of activities packed into our short trip.
