This pretty and colorful inn (all doors and art on the walls are original art pieces) located near Kalapaki Beach in Nawiliwili is spotlessly clean with lots of nice touches around the place, such as fresh flowers, free use of their boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach mats, DVDs and daily housekeeping. The staff exudes the aloha spirit here. They provide a nice complimentary continental breakfast in the lobby with plenty of places to sit and enjoy it in their colorful garden. This is a good place to stay for those seeking a place to sleep in a central location for exploring the island. It can be noisy on the main road, but rooms numbered 3–7, 8–14 and 17–20 face a manmade waterfall that helps drown out the traffic sounds. We also like the large lanai on room 21. The bathrooms have showers, no tubs (except room 20). Rooms (approx. 225–400 sq. ft) are $175–$230. Only wish they had some sort of laundry facilities.

What Readers Have to Say

“Greetings! I’ve just returned from the Big Island and attribute about 80% of the experiences and knowledge I gained from that trip to your book, “The Big Island Revealed”! It was the best vacation I’ve ever had and it’s partly due to the friendly, serene spirit of the people and places we saw, but also due to your aptly titled Ultimate Guidebook we purchased at the airport. You guys were honest, insightful, and on the right path for a non-tourist-minded tourist exploring the island for the first time. Great job!”
