We stayed here as a base to explore Big Island as part of a Hawaii trip. The words B&B don't really do this place justice, it is absolutely stunning and the room would complete with any 5* hotel. We stayed in the Haiku room for four nights and were sad to leave! Two of the walls are floor to ceiling...

We chose this for our honeymoon spot on the Big Island and were not disappointed. Nestled into the jungle near the volcano is this lovely property with well-appointed rooms amidst the native plants, very romantic and private (we were only guests there). There is a nice hottub just a short walk from our room, just note the times/rules. It is...

I was very pleased with our stay with here. The room was very clean and cozy, well equipped with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub and beautiful views of the rainforest. I wouldn't consider this a true bed and breakfast as there is no prepared breakfast but the room is well stocked with fresh fruit, bread, juices and snacks. My only...

It's the little touches and attention to detail that really make a place stand out. J&J are lovely. The oft-mentioned banana bread was great, and there was also various fruit, snacks, crisps, noodles, coffee, teas, little snack cheeses, oatmeal, and cereals. The jacuzzi bath was a good place to relax after walking all day. We did not try the outside...

At the Crater's Edge is an interesting experience. The room is beautifully furnished although not necessarily in a practical way - i.e., not much closet space. But it does offer complete privacy in a very quiet setting quite close to Volcanoes National Park. This isn't really a B&B but does provide hot and cold cereals, fresh fruit, and a banana...

i agree with the reviews that state that this is not your mom & dad's B&B. If the term, B&B scares you and makes you want to run and hide, have no fear that Melanie has done a great job of creating a wondrful place to stay in a private retreat. The room we stayed in was beautiful, spacious, and...

We stayed in the Nahelani room which concerned me at first as I heard it faced the street and another person had mentioned that for privacy you had to have your curtains closed all of the time. While it's true that the room faces the driveway, and if a person was walking up the stairs to go to their room...

Melanie the owner and Jason/Jay the caretakers were all wonderful to work with. Melanie sends a lot of useful information with the reservation. Jason and Jay went far out of their way to make our 4 days there wonderful. They provided a blender for smoothies and on our last day, kept our luggage in the room the whole day and...

This abode of relaxation was perfect for the two of us for pausing between day hikes between the volcano, desert, black sand beach and green sand beach. We stayed in the Heavenly Forest room, which was excellent. Felt like home. The fireplace was a nice touch and came in handy to warm ourselves after trekking miles in the gusty volcano...

We stayed At the Craters Edge for our Big Island portion of our honeymoon and it couldn't have been more perfect. We loved the quiet tranquility of this place along with the amazing beds and unique rooms. This place is literally built in the middle of a rain-forest and since the rooms are set up off the ground, you truly...

“Only two rooms, Haiku was more private.”

“Although Haiku Garden and Nahelelani rooms are outfitted virtually identical, the Haiku Garden room is slightly more private as it faces away from the entrance / driveway, so others staying on property won't pass by your windows.”

“No pool. Just an amazing jacuzzi in a jungle setting.”

“the 2 back to back rooms we saw were either facing the entry or the hot tub. If you are alone on the property, the hottub location feels more private. Good info about the island and volcano park is provided, have dinner at the Volcano House and view the glowing crater in the dark afterwards, but try to get back in time to use the hottub.”

“The Nahelani is very nice and faces the driveway, and the Haiku faces the path to and from the jacuzzi. The other room with the kitchen is currently occupied by the caretakers Jay and Jason.”
