Melanie & Bruce are wonderful B&B hosts! We stayed in the Tranquility suite which is huge, and extremely well equipped. The mural on the wall (underwater vista) is captivating. The place is absolutely spotless, and in the cupboards was everything (and more!) that we needed to feel comfortable, and prepare our meals. Microwave, small fridge, LARGE toaster oven etc. etc....

Just returned from a two-week trip (Big Island and Maui) during which the two of us spent two nights at Hale Ho'onanea. Can't reiterate enough what great hosts Melanie and Bruce are. Melanie actually got three kinds of lactose-free milk from which I could choose when I mentioned that I was lactose intolerant! Her homemade fruit breads are great (blueberry...

My wife and I stayed in the Palm Suite for three nights at the end of September and enjoyed our time there. Bruce and Melanie are friendly, helpful and inobtrusive. The suite was VERY clean, the appliances were new, the simple breakfast basket was perfect for our needs (the breads-mmmm!), and we particularly like the locally made soap. The bed...

We really enjoyed our stay in the Bamboo Suite. I wish we had more days there. The views of the sunset from the lanai are amazing. There is no A/C but they have a ceiling fan in the living room and a standing fan in the bedroom. The first night was a bit warm but the second night was much...

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in late December. This was our second stay at Hale Ho’onanea. Melanie and Bruce are friendly hosts and do a great job managing their B&B. The area is very peaceful with good views of the ocean. It is also a great location for watching the sunset and star gazing at night....

We were very pleased with our visit to Hale Ho'onanea. The pictures do not do it justice. Our group of 4 adults stayed in the Palm and the Bamboo suites. We could have been comfortable in the Bamboo Suite but it was nice having 2 bathrooms. The weather was hot when we arrived but once the winds picked up, the...

We've gone back to Hale Ho'o'nanea several times now, and it keeps getting better. Hosts Melanie and Bruce Biddle are a delight. At 1000 feet elevation, it's cooler and way less humid than the resort coast (which we've sampled at length), and you can see sunsets in the Pacific every day of the year. We like the Milky Way at...

The "Tranquility" room we stayed in had a converted basement or garage feeling. The owners should have furred-out the cinder block foundation walls for a warmer feel and less basement like. They have let untrimmed oleander bushes block much of the ocean view from the patio unless you are standing, and they have you park your car in front of...

In early April we stayed for several nights in their lovely Bamboo Suite. What a magnificent choice this proved to be. Their website photos do not do justice to the beauty of this BB. The Bamboo suite is large, very clean and provided us with a very comfortable home away from home. Melanie, our host was nearby if we needed...

The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. For me, that makes it worth another visit. If you don't feel comfortable here, take my word for it, it's you, not them. Therapy and/or medication might be a good idea. I type this on location. They have high-speed internet, wire and wireless, in each unit. We are here about the warmest part...

“Go for the bamboo suite - it's upstairs so will have better views.”

“I would not choose the Tranquillity suite because of the poor noise insulation. You will hear your upstairs neighbours. Also, bugs are probably closer to the ground floor property...No breeze at night.”
