A really great place to stay away from the crowds. But it’s also away from the beaches. No longer a B and B, so the breakfasts are minimal. Hosts are attentive and welcoming.

Hale Maluhia is Hawaiian meaning House of Peace. The name is very appropriate. It is a quiet and peaceful place run by Miriam and Dave. They are wonderful people.

Not For Everyone
This is a very unusual property. Essentially a large house with a number of out buildings that was built as an inn, it feels more like a family compound that was cobbled together. The big drawing card is its proximity to Kona-Kailua. You can get to the main part of town in than 10 minutes. It is located above town where it is a bit wetter, so it has a lush feel. Unfortunately, after that the negatives pile up: * It is on a small winding road that is fairly busy. It’s location right in the middle of sharp curve means road noise comes from both above and below the property. Family and guest noise was prominent. Ear plugs offered on the bedside table were a troubling sign. * Because it is in the wetter region, our room had a musty smell that left us congested after each night. * THIS IS NOT A COVID-SAFE PROPERTY. Neither the owners nor guests observed any COVID precautions. * This is a property that wears its religious convictions on its sleeve, with many bible sayings displayed prominently. Normally this would be a comfort, but in combination with the attitudes towards masking and the large American flag at the entry to property, there was no mistaking the attitudes of the owners. This is the first place we have ever felt uncomfortable because of the divisions in the US. Between being uncomfortable physically and socially, this was without question our least favorite stay on the Island. We can not recommend it.

Cozy, comfy way to be welcomed to Hawaii
Such a great stay in the Banyan Cottage. Spacious with a comfy bed. Hearing the coqui frogs was a great way to be welcomed to Hawaii! The tub was nice (it would have been nice to know that the hot and cold water were the opposite directions as accustomed to). The property is lush and beautiful! The hosts are so very kind and accommodating. The listing needs to inform the traveler that there is access to a full kitchen and that some of the windows don't close all the way. The location is very convenient to touristy restaurants and shopping. Overall, a great place for a couple, or a throuple, to stay. Mahalo!

The owners were very nice and helpful, and responded quickly to resolvable issues. The bed and bathroom were pretty clean. However, the property really needs a total update - carpet was very old and visibly dirty, and the room felt dusty in general. Because of the location, the room was always somewhat damp, with no AC or dehumidifier available, so the towels and swimming suits never dry and tend to stink; blinds don’t work and our privacy was kept by very thin curtains. You can hear every noise: loud frogs and crickets, roosters before 5am, and cars driving around three sides of the property. Parking is difficult as the property is on a small lot on a hairpin turn in a mountain road. The smoke alarm in the room went off twice for no reason while we were there, the owner had to replace it with a different unit. We didn’t use the shared kitchen so no comment on that. Overall it provided a bed and a bathroom in a safe area, but wasn’t ideal due to the reasons above.
