Opened my eyes each morning to a beautiful sunrise greeting us while still lying in bed. Made great local coffee and sat in the living room to take in the spectacular view before chatting with Bill and Darlene to plan our day. However, it was always hard to leave the Hobbit House since it enveloped us in a world of... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon in May and what an amazing place. Don't be put off by the crazy road to get to the house. You are going in the right direction! The house is very secluded on a hill top and the view from the living room window is just breathtaking. The house itself is so quirky and... More

The Hobbit House is a one of a kind accommodation. Extremely friendly and very helpful hosts, a totally unique home and a outstanding hillside view of the Pacific. Extremely private, very convenient and affordable. We had a great time staying here.

Me and my husband visited Hawaii this past December. We wanted to start our trip with visiting Volcanos of the Big Island, as this is number one attraction ( rightfully so!!!) as you can't experience live volcano anywhere else in the World. The Hobbit House was in ideal location for that, as we didn't want to be too far or... More

You are the ONLY guests of Bill and Darlene - your energetic, innovative and highly creative hosts... ask them about thier Mac Nut Sorting invention, the... More

This is an amazing, unique B&B. The house was built by the owners, who operate the B&B. It is a unique, creative building. For example, the beams on the porches are made from branching tree-trunks, few of teh windows are square. Location is breautiful, overlooking mointains, with a view out to the sea. Hosts were gracious and friendly, and breakfast... More

You’d be surprised, but even nowadays there are places that are unique, avoid mainstream and still remain unpolished by soles of millions of tourists. Even more surprisingly – not in the moon, just on top of a beautiful hill, and in the middle of everything in the Big Island of Hawaii. If you climb up (4x4 helps, it’d be really... More
