Located in beautiful Ahualoa, mauka of Honokaa, Waianuhea combines a sense of remote retreat with modern convenience and sumptuous furnishings. Waianuhea is centrally located on the Big Island of Hawaii, halfway between Kona and Hilo on the slopes of Mauna Kea. Nestled at the 2500-foot elevation on the lush rural Hamakua coast, we offer the visitor a different perspective of life in Hawaii. A place to find yourself, a place to let go of the stresses and cares of daily living, a place to come home to.
Waianuhea offers soothing, peaceful, and luxurious accommodations including a full gourmet breakfast and wine & pupus. All rooms have private bath, phone, satellite TV, CD/DVD, and modem. Jacuzzi, massage room, DVD library, snack bar.
Waianuhea is a soothing, peaceful, and luxurious Hawaii bed and breakfast. We combine a sense of remote retreat with modern convenience and sumptuous furnishings. We have five wonderful rooms to offer the discriminating traveler: two queen bed rooms, two large king bed rooms, and one full suite, with special large soaking tubs in the king room baths. Gas and wood stoves complement and warm the three larger rooms.
A hot gourmet breakfast greets the traveler each morning. Continental breakfast in your room is also an option. We can arrange other amenities such as massages, catering, and tours to fulfill your vacation dreams.
Waianuhea proves that remote living does not have to exclude modern convenience. Our electricity is solar generated and internet access and TV programming is provided via satellite. Clear phone service is a result of an ingenious marriage of cell phones, car kits and roof-top antennae. We also provide DVD and CD players in each room, along with a large DVD collection for your enjoyment.
Waianuhea is also well suited for Big Island weddings, small retreats, corporate meetings, and workshops. Our Great Room, extra half baths and spacious relaxation area with a treatment room and large solar heated spa make an ideal setting for any event.
Escape to the serenity that is Waianuhea. Enjoy the views of the summit of Mauna Kea above and magnificent Pacific Ocean below. Spend the day on the grounds with many beautiful spots for a lazy picnic. Quiet country back roads make for great bike rides and long walks, or explore nearby old Honokaa town with its western charm.
Carol and all the staff send out a big mahalo for twelve plus wonderful years in business!
