We had a great stay at this B&B. Maureen was a very helpful host with locating beaches, giving us coats to go up Mauna Kea (we sure needed them!), providing beach towels and other necessities that travelers often need. The location is great, you are right by the beaches. The rooms we stayed in shared a bathroom which was perfect...

Maureen presides over her beautiful old Hawaii house, built in the 1920s with 8 bedrooms. Beautiful wood everywhere! The common rooms are wonderfully open and welcoming-we spent time relaxing and let the sightseeing wait a day. Maureen is a fountain of information about the area and keeps copies of the best guidebooks for her guests to use. She has also...

To be fair, this review is only based on our walk-through of the property. After we saw it, we didn't want to stay there. Geckos are cute, I get that, but after I saw them crawling on the kitchen counters and Maureen told me she fed them overripe bananas, I was a bit creeped out. (I doubt they were house...

Nice location from town, very near Richardson State beach (practically across the street) and an amazing beach. Maureen was very kind to us and we enjoyed to hearing about her love for horses. There were only two of us for two of the three nights we stayed (in the 5-7?) rooms. A young couple was leaving the next day we...

Maureen is an excellent host who has opened up her historic home for visitors to enjoy. It is a lovely house, furnished with beautiful antiques, in a paradise setting. Maureen has lived in Hawaii for many years and clearly loves her little part of the island. She goes out of her way to be accommodating and is a pleasure to...

We spent 3 nights at Maureen's in April 2013 with close friends as part of a week-long vacation to the Big Island. Flying into the Kona airport, our plan was to attend sunset & stargaze on Mauna Loa and then descend into Hilo. Maureen was amazingly gracious and the customer service in accomodating a late arrival like this planned went...

Maureen has lived on the island for over 20 years and helped with the planning of my vacation and future move to the island. My family and I stayed at her B & B for almost 2 weeks.
