Guest Book

My wife and I stayed at Hale Moana for three nights in April and just loved it. It’s really one of the nicest B&Bs we’ve stayed in. It’s in a peaceful area, far from any city lights, so there were some beautiful dark and starry skies, but it’s not far from the surprisingly good restaurants in Pahoa, or from the coast road and access to the ocean. Petra is a great host, ready with answers for any question about the Big Island, and she set us up with snorkel gear and directions before our trip to the tide pools. The breakfasts were well made, very tasty, different every day, and quite filling. Nothing missing there at all. Our room was super-clean and spacious, private and quiet, and we looked forward to returning to it each night. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit the Big Island. Thanks for everything, Petra–your place is a winner!

Thank you for your warmth & hospitality. We enjoyed our stay in your lovely home & we would love to visit here again. We appreciated your help (and your map) in planning our day trips. The crater hike was a definite highlight of our visit to the volcano and we really enjoyed driving to the end of the road to see the homes that have sprung up on top of the Kalapana Lava flow area. Nice chat with the guard at the end of the road. We loved your tasty breakfasts – a great way to start our days. Thanks again – ‘til we meet again!

Thank you so much for your warm hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay at your lovely B&B. The gardens were beautiful and so full of tropical delights. The Lanai Suite was extremely comfortable and met all of our needs very well. The breakfasts were delicious and we liked the serve yourself service. We greatly appreciated your taking the time to sit down with us and advise us on the local attractions. Your suggestion of the botanical garden turned out to be a highlight of our visit here and we would never have found it on our own. We appreciated the personal car that you extended to each and every one of your guests.

What a lovely oasis! The kind of place you want to stay longer, because it feels so easy to just sit here and gaze out over your beautiful gardens. Thank you for accommodating our family’s various food restrictions (You really didn’t have to). We enjoyed being fed so well. The Bed and sheets were so comfortable and luxurious. Wishing you and your family and community continued resiliency in the coming months/years as the lava flows where it will.
