Our FOUR ROOM INN is situated on a peaceful FRUIT FARM on the East side of the Big Island of Hawaii. Mahana House is a quiet and relaxing place to soak up the expansive ocean views and is IDEALLY LOCATED to explore the many lush gardens and spectacular waterfalls nearby as well as Hilo town and HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK. There are bananas, avocados, lychee and passionfruit available for guests to enjoy in season.

Each of our four NEWLY BUILT guest suites has a KING SIZE BED and PRIVATE LANAI with FULL OCEAN VIEW. All rooms have an ENSUITE bathroom with fully tiled walk-in shower and granite countertop. Guest suites also have complimentary WIFI, TV, kitchen area and private entrance. Guests have access to the great room of the house which has a full kitchen, laundry room, and lounge areas. Our large lanais are the perfect place to BBQ and enjoy dinner by tiki torch light in the evening or coffee with sunrise in the morning.

Some day trip ideas include exploring waterfalls and gardens nearby, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and MAUNA KEA summit and stargazing. There is virtually no limit to the activities and adventures available to you on the Big Island. We have a 3 night minimum for guest reservations.

There is often more availability than may appear on our reservation calendars. Please feel free to call or email us directly with any questions.

The OCEAN is a short drive down the road to a former sugar cane plantation, now Hakalau Park. HAWAII TROPICAL BOTANICAL GARDEN and AKAKA FALLS are within a few easy miles of the farm. After a day of sight seeing, return to the beautiful ocean view, warm breezes and peaceful atmosphere of our farm.

MAHANA HOUSE COUNTRY INN is owned and operated by Randy and Alison Simpson who have years of experience in the hospitality industry. We pride ourselves on the CLEANLINESS and COMFORT of our WELL-APPOINTED guest rooms. It is our most sincere wish to provide our guests with a quiet, peaceful, and relaxing stay on the Big Island. The incredible natural beauty and climate of Hawaii is something we appreciate every day and it is a privilege to share this wonderful place with our guests.

Mahalo,
Randy and Alison Simpson

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Randy and Alison moved to the Big Island from Ontario, Canada in 2013. After visiting for the first time in 2008, we fell in love with the Hamakua Coast. We were able to sell our hotel and restaurant businesses in our hometown of Stratford and make the dream of Mahana House a reality. Randy and Alison live in a small house slightly uphill from the main house. A few friendly cats roam the farm. They are happy to be petted should you encounter them (perhaps on your lanai…) but are definitely not allowed inside the main house or guest rooms.

Why the Owner Chose Hakalau, HI, USA:
After visiting the Big Island several times, we fell in love with the Hamakua Coast. Once we found this property and the saw view we were hooked. The East side of Hawaii offers a unique experience with great parks, restaurants and hikes for your Hawaii adventure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Large private guest rooms are newly built by industry professionals. Incredibly beautiful climate and view. Perfect for couples. Stay and do exactly as much or as little as you like!
