Mahana House Country Inn

(808) 937-9245
29-3825 Pueo Ihi Rd, Hakalau

This small inn is set along the gorgeous Hamakua Coast, 15 miles north of Hilo in a relaxing, rural area (cell phone reception may be spotty and they don’t have phones in rooms). If you’re not looking for lots of lavish amenities and enjoy getting out to explore the island, this is great place to rest your head. The owners have found a nice niche emphasizing comfort and privacy. Presented as more of a guest house, the property features four units. Each has its own semi-private lanai (they are separated by a thin wall of bamboo harvested from the grounds). The rooms have a contemporary feel with mixed elements of Hawaiian décor and plenty of wood and stone tile. Each bedroom has a king-size, Sleep Number bed that should please anyone’s comfort requirements. Each room has its own wet-bar, but all guests have access to the full kitchen with modern appliances (and usually fresh fruit and eggs) along with the lounge area in the center of the building. The large bathrooms are especially nice with stone-tiled, walk-in showers.

The Palms Cliff House Inn

(866) 963-6076 or (808) 963-6076
28-3514 Mamalahoa Hwy, Honomu

What a great spot for this small inn! A serene, white, Victorian-style, lovingly-maintained home sits on over 3 acres overlooking Pohaku Manu Bay about 13 miles north of Hilo with its great ocean breezes, dolphins and whales (in season) in plain view. Hawaiian antiques can be found at every turn. Hot full breakfast is served on an open-air lanai every day (or there’s a continental breakfast option for late-risers), high tea on some Saturdays by reservation. Snacks and drinks are available in the lounge for reasonable prices. Spa services can be arranged. The owner makes beautiful wedding cakes and hosts many weddings here. (This property is very photogenic). The rooms are all different, spacious and richly furnished with an ocean view. We like rooms 1, 4, 5, and 8 best for their large Jacuzzi tubs facing the ocean and gas fireplaces (not that you’ll be needing them). All rooms have large showers. They have free local calls here and your cell phone may not get reception at this property.
