This is a lovely location away from the tourist crowds. We so enjoyed meeting the other guests each morning for coffee and a delightful breakfast of fresh fruits, pastries and hot items such as omelettes, french toast or waffles, while watching the colorful island birds swarm the feeder in the courtyard by our breakfast lanai. Manager Ken was always at...

This was a gem of a find. Located up the mountain at about 1000 feet elevation, the location is cooler in the evening and gets more rain which made for a more comfortable stay. The Inn relaxing; the people who work there are very accommodating making us feel very welcome and well cared for. Lots of fresh fruit for breakfast...

It's difficult to write a review that has a few negative comments when you don't want to hurt the hosts feelings. The hosts were quite welcoming, but like another poster mentioned, they didn't ask how our stay was going or if there were any issues. The breakfasts each morning were made with care and were very satisfying and beautiful to...

This was our second time at Hale Maluhia and we enjoyed it very much. We stayed in the Makua room. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom could use a bit of updating but the room was clean and comfortable. The hosts and staff were wonderful and the breakfast consisted of fresh local fruit, boiled eggs, cereal and bakery...

We stayed in the Banyan Cottage for 4 nights and did not see the other sleeping rooms. The Cottage was spacious and had more than adequate furnishings, appliances, and housewares. The breakfasts were enjoyable and ample. The location was reasonably convenient, as was the parking. However, nearly everything (except the linens) was dated or dirty, indicating that maintenance was a...

We stayed in the Banyan Cottage for 4 days. Cottage was a bit aged, but was clean or so we thought. The first night we heard the pitter patter of feet in the room and mentioned it during breakfast with our host Ken. He mentioned it could be rats, but didn't seem concerned. Later that day we had an unopened...

We were very surprised this place got a high rating on TripAdvisor although the more recent reviews are accurate. It definitely is in need of renovation and repair. Very uncomfortable beds and noisy! Hosts really don't seem concerned about poor reviews and don't seem to want to improve your stay by asking if there's anything they can do. Many other...

The complex does have nice landscaping but building & rooms need repairs, but this did not really affect our stay. While our room was what we expected (bed needs replacing which I believe is going to happen after we mentioned it) & quite well appointed, but we can't say we enjoyed out stay here. Mainly due to the manager Ken...

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Hale Maluhia on our recent trip to Hawaii. The Inn is well-located just out of Kailua up mountain, not beach location. The grounds have a lot of vegetation with many birds and wandering chickens. We were greeted by the friendly managers and shown around. We had a large room with a queen...

The facilities at Hale Maluhia are very nice with lots of vegetation and nicely landscaped. However that said, the owner/manager, Ken, (who has been there about 6 months he said) a very nice man, did not seem to have a handle on things. When we arrived there, he wasn't certain which room we were in (we had to tell him),...
