Beautiful B&B. Difficult to find such a romantic place in the area, which does not feel like an unpersonnal resort.
The rooms with the view on the ocean are a worth the spend - the other ones are nice but not worth the ride to get there (very rocky road and quite far away from Kona; in coffee fields).
We loved every minute we spent there, good privacy, lovely guest John with lots of knowledge to share and delicious breakfasts.
The hot tub is a delight, under the stars at night.
There is a big balconey, internet with computer too.
We LOVED it and would recommend it withot hesitation - best is to stay minimum 2 nights to just have a full lazy day in paradise!

Room Tip: select one of the 2 with the ocean view.

A gem of a place to stay in the middle of paradise. Great views of the ocean, clean nicely furbished room with a community kitchenette attached, and really quiet in the evenings/early mornings. The 1 mile driveway up the hill to the place was an "adventure in motoring", especially in the dark. Was a hoot actually.

We have stayed at B&Bs throughout the US and the Aloha Guest House is the BEST B&B EVER. The view is without equal. The breakfast is "to die for". The Kona coffee is fantastic. I have never liked coffee, but I loved their Kona coffee. Book a massage. You won't regret it. Rent a kayak from them. We experienced dolphins up close and personal. I would recommend renting an SUV. The road to the B&B is not the best, but we made it there fine in our SUV, without even needing to go into 4X4. A normal car will make it, but it's MUCH easier with an SUV. The hot tub was fantastic. WE LOVED OUR STAY THERE. OK, I'm shouting, but this B&B is worth shouting about. It was the PERFECT 10 year anniversary trip.

We stayed 4 wonderful nights in the Whale Room to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. Greg met us and gave us a tour, introducing us to Mango and Kei. We were shown to our room and met with beautiful flowers and basket of goodies that our friend in Texas had secretly arranged with AGH. By the way, Mango never attempted to eat our shoes, in fact he ignored them. Removing our shoes was a surprise but a tradition we respected and adhered too. It made us feel that we were not on the mainland anymore.

First, the need for a 4 wheel drive was not a surprise, both their website and email advised us that it would be recommended. In fact, it was an adventure the first time we traveled that mile, but doing it in the dark was adventuous and scary at times, we even played some spooky music to set the atmosphere. We might understand some folks not liking the road but it opened to door to interesting conversations over breakfast. It rained every evening so the road was even more interesting. Our car survived, even when we took it to the top of Mauna Kea later in our trip.

Our first evening we found that we could not operate the television remote, we found Johann who came back to our room and instructed us. It worked fine the rest of our stay. The bed was the most comfortable of our trip that saw 1 additional bed and breakfast and 2 hotels. It was quite high but Greg and Johann, seeing that I was short person, provided me with a stairway to my bed. The views from the room and bed were what brought us here in the first place.

Breakfast was just right, the coffee, unlimited cups mind you, were the best on the island in our opinion. Every morning Johann treated us to something different, we even came home and tried the Mango and Oatmeal one morning. Conversation with the other guest found us making new friends and having Johann and Lima join us made it feel like family.

There was one negative comment I read that called this place a gay bed and breakfast. I find this strange since all the couples we met were obviously hetrosexual. We were the only gay couple and were treated like everyone else, not a hit of discrimination like what you might find in those owned by more, how would you put it, right wing folks.

We did not have a chance to use the spa and yes, clothing was optional but I would have kept my 54 year old body covered in order to not pain the other guests.

Aloha Guest House is highly recommended, especially to those who have been to the big island before (our 5th visit) and what to experience more of the true Hawaii than those at the ritzy hotels and condos. Which aren't bad but for a new experience, give Aloha Guest House a chance. Will we visit again, don't know since we sent our trip looking at reality in plans to make the Big Island our home too when we retire.

We stayed at the Aloha room for only one night. We regretted not being able to stay longer. The location is perfect and the views and the house are a dream made true. The hosts are nice and we could feel that the house had been prepared for the guests to feel at home. A SUV is not a must but it is recommendable.
