We enjoyed our stay at the wonderful place on the Big Island with the very personel touch of the host Petra! A very lovely peaceful place, nice garden and very delicious breakfast! We can recommend it strongly!

Petra is a wonderful host, and made us feel completely at home - giving us tips on where to eat, hike, and visit. The place is cozy and cute, and very well kept/clean, so we had an extremely comfortable stay. Breakfast is great with lots of fresh fruit, and there is a washer/dryer for use by guests. Location is ~1...

We were looking for a place away from the crowd and this B&B has been the perfect location. It is hidden in a beautiful green estate. After busy days of sight seeing, the tranquility of the place was so welcomed. The only things that we could hear during the day or the night were the bird songs. Early walks in...

We stayed here for four days as part of our week's visit to the Big Island. We found the welcome friendly and Petra's knowledge and suggestions very helpful. We had an early helicopter flight booked and Petra provided us a basket breakfast so that we could sort ourselves out. The only disappointing thing was the distance to the town for...

We selected Hale Moana based on the great reviews. A few things came as surprises: 1) check in is not until 5:30PM. Check out 10:30. Petra wants people to have checked in by 7 (i.e. you have a 1.5 hour window to check in). I had thought it was 7:30, so was surprised by messages from Petra (we had no...

Aloha, I would like to take the opportunity to respond to this review.

We stayed a the spacious garden suite which was probably the cleanest location during our Hawaii vacation. Very well maintained!! Petra was a very nice and helpful host and her breakfast was delicious. The B&B is located in a green, lush garden close to the Hippie town Pahoa and perfect for Volcanoe explorations. When we had to leave early for...

This B & B is in a great location, only a short drive to amazing snorkeling, hiking, Kilauea, and Hilo. The rooms have their own entrances. The beautiful rain forest garden is a peaceful and relaxing experience. The breakfast was good with lots of options. Don't pass up the opportunity to visit the Hilo Coffee Mill.

My partner and I arrived to Hale Moana at 10pm after a long day visiting the island. While the horrible noice of the coqui frogs is not to be blamed, as we entered our small, extremely hot, old-like and dirty room we felt like going back to a back packer experience from when we were 18 than at a b&b...

Aloha, I believe that this review is a mix-up and was meant for a different place. First of all, I did not have a person by this name ever stay with me here. Second, I do not have $180 per night rooms. The largest suite here is $175 per night and a two-bedroom apartment with kitchen, dining/living room, private bathroom,...
