We stayed one night in the Hibiscus Room and enjoyed our stay. We always like places that have some history and feel more connected to the place than cheap hotels. The room was larger than expected and nicely appointed. As others have mentioned, there were hints that the place needs some renewed energy and vision but the location and history...

We spent three nights here in December and unfortunately we were very sad to see how a place of such historical significance and beautiful natural setting seems to be in such decline, as if nature is claiming it back. Our room was so musty and damp that the dehumidifier filled within 6 hours and shut off. The room was also...

As one with some background in historic preservation in Hawaii, it was a particular pleasure to be able to stay at a property with the Jacaranda Inn’s rich heritage and charm but modern-day comfort, wiring and plumbing. Much of the historic fabric and certainly the character of the original construction remains, and what may not be original at least is...

Although many good reviews on TA we did not share this experience. We stayed only one night at the Inn and immediately upon entering the big house to check in it smelled very musty. We were ushered way out back to one the farthest rooms away. I think there were only 4 cars in the whole place. The room was...

This 8 room (max 22 people) inn is the old managers house of Parker Ranch. Dated, musty and retro to the hilt, it is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Large rooms filled with antique furniture and wonderful King suze beds, larger bathrooms, balconies, outdoor seating areas, and Grey Gardens overgrown landscaping, it is quiet, restful and great effort has...

We loved the details in the rooms. Ours had an antique 4 poster bed and a huge jacuzzi tub. We enjoyed our private lanai, but also got coffee and pastries at the nearby Waimea Coffee Roasters and sat in the sun on the large front porch enjoying the lovely breezes and views. The owners were very friendly. We felt like...

We stayed at the Jacaranda Inn for our last night on Big Island and were absolutely delighted by it. I will admit to getting some 'The Shining'-style creeps on arrival - the place is very quiet and you have to walk through a beautifully appointed but totally empty main house to find someone to check in with. However, the owners...

This is a nice change from the glitzy resorts of the Kona coast. Beautiful grounds and main house. As other reviewers have noted, this is not a B & B and there isn't a front desk although the owners are around and available. And if you can't live without wifi, this is not the place for you. We stayed in...

This place is an amazing old Ranch House and Inn. If you are looking for a spotless room with modern furnishings this may not be the place for you. On the other hand if you are looking for a chance to experience a little history of a past era you will find this to be a great experience. We spent...

I've driven by this place so many times and wondered what it might be like. I finally got the chance to find out. I spent one night and was in the Vanda room (which is actually a suite). This is a historic home with a fascinating past. My room was quite lovely and I felt a little like I should...

“Using the brick path to the left of the front entry and the few steps at the end will be the easiest way to get bags to most rooms.”
