Hale Ho'onanea - The Hospitality of a B&B 
with the Privacy of a Vacation Rental, 
in Kohala Estates on the Beautiful 
Gold Coast of West Hawaii



Hawaii has long been recognized as a romantic hideaway.  Hale Ho'onanea B&B & Retreat is  an ideal haven  for honeymoons & anniversary celebrations.

Awaken to the music of singing birds with a serene sunrise over majestic Mauna Kea...  Restore your body, mind & soul.



As an alternative lodging to the mega resorts, homeowners, Bruce & Melanie offer their peaceful, quiet country estate. Located on 3 acres in Kohala Estates (only our PO box is located in Waimea/Kamuela) on the beautiful Gold Coast of West Hawaii, playground of ancient Hawaiian royalty.  The Hawaiian translation of Ho'onanea means to pass the time in peace, ease & pleasure, to relax. Guests, both kama'aina (local) &  visitors alike can experience the tranquility of this healing retreat - click here for some of their comments.  Our Bed & Breakfast accommodations offer separate suites decorated with local art & casual comfort in mind.  Enjoy breathtaking sunsets and moonlight on the ocean from your own lanai. Our 900 foot elevation provides us with panoramic ocean views overlooking the Kohala Coast, and temperatures a few degrees cooler than found at sea level, so we are naturally air cooled (no air conditioning) - click here for maps and directions.  Our weather is usually warm & sunny. 


  • Whale watch; prime viewing season for humpback whale watching is December through March.
  • Curl up with a good book.
  • Go within; listen to therapeutic Hawaiian music,
  • Relax with a movie. Many videos to choose from.
  • Ponder the meaning of life under a canopy of stars.
