What Past Guests Are Saying
We stayed here for two nights at the end of our honeymoon and were delighted. Great setting in a rain forest, large screened porch, attractive and comfortable guest room, and great breakfasts (including gluten-free options). Our hosts were very gracious, and very knowledgeable about local sites of interest, which include an awesome black sand beach and lava flows into the water (best accessed by boat). Our stay here was wonderful, and this is the best bed and breakfast that either of us have ever stayed in.
A Little Bit of Paradise
We wanted a quiet getaway on the Big island to celebrate our 25th anniversary, and the Ohia House more than met our expectations. Being the only guests in a very comfortable room with a large screened in porch, in a secluded tropical setting was special. Add to that the most amazing breakfasts, and gracious hospitality of our hosts, and we feel that we did find "a little bit of paradise". J

Our home away from home!
Hands down the best place we've stayed in the islands! Completely secluded in the rain forest in Leilani Estates in Pahoa. Relaxing any time of the day. A great place to unwind! Cindy and Rick are great hosts and Cindy's breakfasts were amazing and her recommendations of places to visit and eat were extremely helpful. We are hooked and will return.
Beautiful, peaceful, delicious, and friendly!
On a recent trip to Hawaii, we had the good fortune to book three nights at the Ohia House. Like the name says, it is tucked away in an ohia forest, remote, but with easy access to all the fun stuff. Your room is private and separate from the main house. The grounds are lush with brilliant, tropical colors. The birds sing by day, the frogs by night. Your private screened lanai is your front row seat to this paradise. Cindy and Rick are warm, gracious hosts. The breakfasts, which are made from fresh, local ingredients, are incredible. Go once, you'll be compelled to return.
Santa Cruz, Ca
I completely enjoyed my stay at the Ohia House B&B;!! The room was so relaxing and clean. The bed was luxurious to sleep in. There is a mini fridge, microwave, snorkel mask/snorkel, extra towels, coffee maker/tea available. The room has extra space with a couch and desk. The bathroom was very private and you can tell the owners of the Ohia house have excellent taste. The salt water pool is extremely inviting- I enjoyed swimming laps! The frogs and the rain were so soothing to listen to at night while sleeping. The huge screened in porch area is a great extension of the room where I enjoyed relaxing mosquito free, listening to rain storms, reading and eating amazing breakfasts! The fact that there is only one B&B; accommodation means that you are spoiled rotten. Cindy knows just what to recommend when planning your day trips. She gave me excellent advice about visiting nearby volcano national park, the town of volcano for lunch and going back for a hike and nighttime viewing. She can direct you to the hot ponds, black sand beach with giant turtles, tide pools and a great surfing site (Rick will probably elaborate on this one!). They can also recommend great restaurants and local secrets! I will definitely be recommending Ohia B&B; to all my friends and family. I can't wait for my next trip back to Ohia house.
Oak Hills, CA
I had a relaxing and comfy stay
I really enjoyed the Ohia House. The location is secluded and beautiful, but close to town, Volcanoes Natl Park, and the beach. My room had a fridge and micro as well as beach towels and snorkel gear, and was nice and spacious. And breakfast served on the lanai! Yum, yum yum! Also, you are the only guest at Ohia, so it is perfect for people who may not be comfortable usually at B&Bs;.

As if we were at home!
Cindy and Rick are wonderful people and we truly enjoyed our stay. Their property is beautiful.They put alot of time and care into all the details and it shows.
They even accommodated a thirteen year old(she slept on the couch comfortable).
They gave excellent recommendations for things to do and dining. We slept like angels and woke up to a breakfast of homemade french toast(and all the fixings).
We will definitely stay with them again :)

A lovely tropical getaway
We had a wonderful stay at Ohia House. Rick and Cindy were gracious hosts. Our room was comfortable and equipped with anything we could possibly need, including binoculars, umbrellas, a cooler, travel guides and so much more. It was spotless and nicely decorated. The Lanai was also beautifully decorated with lovely outdoor furniture and orchids everywhere. Breakfast each day was delicious and consisted of fresh fruits and interesting local fare. Cindy is a wealth of knowledge about the area and gave us many great tips as we planned our daily tours of Hawaii. Ohia House is located near Pahoa, a charming town, in a beatuful neighborhood surrounded by native plants and flowers. We felt we were in our own little "paradise". Ohia House is a great stay and a terrific value. We highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

Enjoy the Hawaiian paradise
when paradise begins in Hawaii it just starts at Ohia House at Pahoa. A great place just inside the tropical rainforest not far from the sea and the volcano park. If you want to relax, enjoy nature (including bird and frog concert) and have a great good morning breakfast you are just right at Cindy and Ricks home. We enjoyed it very much. Sorry that it is so far away from Germany otherwise we would come again!
Cheryl from Wisconsin
Best Bed & Breakfast on the Big Island!
This is our first experience with a bed and breakfast, and for us it was the perfect fit. We had our own private room, bathroom, entrance. Cindy was very informative of the island and gave us a lot of information each day on what to see and where to go that most tourists don't know about. We had to use of maps, books, umbrellas, snorkel gear. It was great. I would highly recommend and would stay here again. Also, the breakfasts were fantastic. Cindy made sure we could experience different fruits each day that we would probably never try. We never left the morning hungry!
Julia and Mihael
Excelltent place to stay
Extremely nice and helpful hosts and the location in the south east of the island made the Ohia House an excellent base for all volcano park related stuff and the whole east side of the island.
The nice room with a deck and the awesome breakfasts made our stay very pleasant.
Thanks a lot!
We hope to come back someday.

â€œOutstanding place to stay. Cannot wait to go back againâ€
We stumbled onto The Ohia House by accident. We only wish we knew about this place before we came to Hawaii. We would have stayed more nights with them. The accomodations are incredible. Private bedroom, bath and sitting room. Beautiful tropical surroundings. Lovely breakfast in the morning. Rick and Cindy (the owners) are gracious and interesting. I am looking forward to returning to The Ohia House in the near future.

A wonderful and relaxing stay
Our stay at The Ohia House was simply amazing. We were deliciously surprised by graciousness and insight of our hosts, the sights and adventures of the Puna region, as well as the tropical delicacies we were honored with each morning at breakfast.
The room was very spacious, with a comfy bed and couch, and had an adjoining private screened-in lanai. My wife and I enjoyed relaxing on the lounge chairs on the lanai and ended up playing some of the card games we found in the room out on the table while being serenaded by the frogs. But, that wasn't the best use of the outside table, by far. That honor went to the magnificent spread that magically appeared for breakfast each day. The delicious local fruits and coffee were wonderful, but were eclipsed by the amazing Banana Macadamia Nut Dutch babies. If we are lucky enough to get Cindy's recipe, it will be our go to, "wow” breakfast for our own guests. Also, once Cindy found out my wife is a soy milk drinker, she had it ready for us the next day.
There was plenty to do in that area. The volcano is in striking distance, and a must see. With Rick's consult, we decided on a helicopter ride over the area; which was a highlight of our trip. An excursion to the "end of the road” to see the newly formed Kaimu Black Sand Beach and billowing steam cloud caused by the lava entering the ocean is well worth it. Spectacular!
We took a drive up the coast, which was beautiful, and spent some time snorkeling in the Kapoho Tidepools.
Mahalo to Cindy and Rick for making our time on the eastern coast more than we could have imagined. We will be recommending the Ohia House to all our friends and are counting the days until we are able to return.
Steve and Kieba
Ohia House was perfect! My Sweetheart and I decided to take a little retreat and found much more than we expected. It was incredibly relaxing - not just because of the wonderful location (a secluded jungle setting) or because the bed was about the best I've slept in - the comfort was directly related to the easy, friendly way everything was laid out and the obvious thought that had gone in to make sure guests feel at home and taken care of. There are many delightful places to sit, relax, talk or take a nap. Unlike many bed and breakfast spots where you feel you shouldn't "sit on the furniture" or touch anything of the proprietor will bill you extra - at the Ohia House we felt warmly welcome and graciously served. We'll be back - but next time longer!
Fantastic Stay at Ohia House
What a fantastic B&B.; I couldn't have been happier with my stay. From the minute you arrive on the property and are greeted by Cindy and Rick your relaxation begins. The room is well appointed, with nice features including the microwave and refrigerator and a desk. It is spacious and very clean. But my favorite place quickly became the private lanai. I was so happy lounging in the peace and lush surroundings that I almost didn't want to go out for excursions!
Cindy is an amazing cook and the breakfasts are amazing. You start each day with something new, different and delicious. A number of the fruits come from Cindy's garden or her green house. And she likes to feature local fruits and preserves that you may not see at home. I am in the food business, and I would love some of Cindy's recipes!
Although you are off the beaten path, there is still plenty do do in the area... the volcano, the hot ponds, zip lining, and the beach, with some nice local restaurants that are within easy reach.
I would happily recommend Ohia house to anyone. And I will be back!
Heaven on earth.
Beautiful house surrounded by nature. The owners are comforting and knowledgeable.
Looked forward to the breakfast. Everyday was a different delicious masterpiece.
Tropical,Peaceful, Romantic, Healthful,Reflective Retreat!
We had a wonderful stay at the Ohia house in Pahoa Hawaii. Very private tropical setting, peaceful/quiet atmosphere with private pool and screened in porch. Highspeed internet for computer so did get some work done. Very comfortable room and healthy food. My mate and I found it to be very romantic and a rejuvenating/reflictive time for us. Blissful!
Best Place to visit Volcano, Red Hot lava, Big Island Hawaii
A newer “one bedroom” B&B, that feels more like a studio apt minus full kitchen. Very private, spacious, gorgeous yard, huge lanai, pool. Great breakfast. Perfect if not travelling with children. I recommend for tourists, people attending class/workshop in Hilo. LOCATION ideal for Volcano, entire E side Big Island: 5 min drive to park-walk ½ to 1 mi. to see active flowing lava. We got within 3 feet! Close to tidepools, best surf beach on island. I will never ever stay again closer to Volcano Park. Ohia House is what it is really like to live in Hawaii. I know because I grew up in Pahoa in the 60's. Can't wait to return.
Greg & Cindy Grove
We had a lovely relaxing and informative stay at the Ohia House.
The food was simply delicious. The fruits are grown by owners Cindy and Rick. We especially enjoyed the Lychee fruit which we had never had before. Yum!!
Our hosts were welcoming and full of information and suggestions. Our accommodations were pristine and comfortable. There was a private swimming pool available for our use although we did not use it.
Ohia House was every bit as nice as the hotel room we stayed in in Waikaloa and I cannot emphasize enough how clean it was. Anyone who knows me knows how picky I am. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Cindy and Rick and have sung the praises of Ohia House to all our friends. We can't wait to go back!!
Tropical Tranquility with exceptional service!
Rick and Cindy were exceptional hosts for my stay while working in the Pahoa area. Before work each day, Cindy went out of her way to make sure I had a wonderful breakfast that would satisfy me for hours and at the end of the day I had plenty of peace and quiet in very clean accomodations with a lovely large screen porch-outdoor bonus room. For me, this was a perfect place to stay in close proximity to my work and a lovely drive past the lovely trees of Lava Tree State Park on my way to and from the house. I found the nights were cool enough to sleep with the windows closed to quiet the chirping of the koki frogs that some people may find a little loud if they aren't used to the sounds of the tropical evening. I would definitely stay there again if traveling for business or pleasure.
Awesome B&B; on the Eastside of the Big Island
Cindy and Rick were very welcoming and helpful. They gave us great recommendations and specific directions to all the cool sites in the area. I couldn't have asked for a better lodging experience. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Perfection in Paradise
I have trouble putting into words what a wonderful place Ohia House is! From the secluded, yet not too far off the map, location to the best breakfast ever, this is the place to stay if you want to experience the slower side of Hawaii. The private screened in lanai was the perfect place to have breakfast. The birds flying around and the musical frogs added to the already pristine environment. I highly recommend this place!
Nice weekend get-away
We had a lovely time. Good breakfasts, lots of helpful hints of where to go & what to do. Thoughtful extras like beach mats, towels, masks & snorkels, etc. The coquis (frogs) were very relaxing to listen to. Great lanai.
Ann Arbor, MI
Great Vacation Spot
My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Ohio House Bed and Breakfast. The location was perfect for exploring the east side of the Big Island. The house very nicely decorated and well kept. Cindy and Rick were excellent hosts, and we espcially apreciated Cindy's breakfasts and helpful advice.
Ohia House Bed and Breakfast
My wife and I stayed at the Ohia House B and B last month and we loved it!
The house is tucked away on a quite piece of property just outside of town.
Our room had all the things that you hope for. It was full of class. The room
comes with snorkel gear, lots of towels, maps, books on the area, desk with
pen and paper. They even had this great eco-bag as a gift. They pay attention
to the details. I didn't realize how much we would use that little bag.
If your anything like my wife and I we love our coffee. We woke to one of the
best cups in years. Breakfast at the Ohia House was the hidden secret. The
breakfast was amazing and lots of it. It was perfect.
Cindy and Rick, owners of the Ohia House are wonderful. I can't recommend
this place enough. If you are traveling and want to relax, this is the spot!
a wonderful getaway!
I discovered this place purely by chance and it was a great find. It is a lovely
home in a beautiful, secluded neighborhood---very peaceful! The guest room
has a separate entrance and a large screened lanai. Everything is immaculate
and well designed. Cindy and Rick have planned well for their guests comfort.
They provided everything we needed and more. The breakfasts were
outstanding and could have been in Gourmet Magazine. I can't say enough
about our hosts. They gave us excellent tips on sightseeing, restaurants, etc.
and took wonderful care of us. Would love to come back here.

Great Place to stay!
This was a wonderful B&B. Cindy and Rick offer a very private, spacious, thoughtfully set up, and very well equipped suite with a large, screened lanai. The breakfast was delicious, the yard is lush, and location great to explore the Puna and Pahoa area. Our only disappointment was that we didn't plan to stay there longer, there was so much to explore and this is a great place to just relax. It is nicer than the photos show.
This is true Aloha!
The accomatations were spotless, all amenities were avaliable for a wonderful stay. Wonderful delecious breakfast every morning, vacation tips very helpful. It was the best B & B I've ever had the experience of sharing!!!

Pampered in Paradise
Yes...we felt totally pampered by Cindy and Rick at their secluded, cozy Bed and Breakfast. Who would not feel like royality having your scrumptious, homemade breakfast served on your own private, screened in lani every morning? And what a breakfast! We were there a week and every breakfast was different. In addition to fresh brewed Hawaiian coffee, we had tea, fresh squeezed juices, eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, smoked salmon, bagels/cream cheese, dutch babies and so much more! Fresh local fruit with each meal, jams, peanut butter, "real" half and half for our coffee!!! They even had a newspaper and music each morning! Who does this? We would return JUST for the breakfast.
We were close to Hilo in one direction and Volcano National Park in another direction. Also near the most Eastern part of the Big Island where we could explore local surfing sites and warm, natural ponds in which to relax. The small town of Pahoa was quaint and had several wonderful restaurants. We even golfed one day and had a massage the next. Now that's living! Rick and Cindy are experts on all things Hawaiian. The best surfing sites, scenic views, historical information and local eateries. They were happy to provide us with scuba gear, umbrellas, bug spray, and even their own personal maps/books on the local areas. It seemed like they magically appeared when we needed something and then disappeared so we could enjoy our own private little world!
Our bedroom was large enough to have a queen bed, couch, tv and very big closet. Our own microwave, small refrigerator and coffee pot!!! Iron, hair dryer...they had it all. Beautiful bathroom with plush linens. And, again, the private lani was over the top! Evening wine/beer/cocktails were always a priority after a day of exploring.
The swimming pool/deck was a wonderful place to relax. Reading, lounging and listening to the exotic birds was always the best way to unwind at the Ohia House BandB!!!
Dave and Helen
Special, highly individual with the best breakfasts ever, in location that gives
easy access to many of the best areas in the Southeast of Big island.
You'll wish you stayed longer.
ted and mary lou
fabulous stay in Pahoa
Cindy and Rick make you feel right at home. Beautiful grounds and a great room. Food was incredible. Your own private lanai. They provide many amenities. Would not hesitate to go back.
What a wonderful place to stay anytime of the year. Cindy and Rick are fun and
Delightful Christmas memories
My wife and I spent a lovely couple of days at the Ohia House on the island of Hawaii. Rick and Cindy were gracious hosts providing us with a beautiful well apointed room with a spacious lanai. A wonderful breakfast was served by Cindy with ample food. Cindy was kind enough to give us great directions to some beaches and we had a very enjoyable time. We both enjoyed our stay with them and recommend Ohia house to all.
Santa Cruz, ca
Beautiful, Friendly and Convenient!
I experienced a wonderful three night stay here and the only complaint I had have is that I couldn't stay longer. The room was spacious and immaculate with ample storage space and a very comfortable bed. The privacy was nice but if I had any questions I always had answers in Cindy, she was most helpful! The setting was gorgeous tucked away from the street amongst ohias and cleverly placed orchids. The pool was always warm and it was only minutes from the nice Pohoiki beach/ park, the tide pools and trip down the "red road". Breakfast was the meal I looked forward to most, fresh fruit, pastries and juice always greeted me on the bug-free, screened in porch. I will definitely stay here on my next visit to the Big Island- thank you Cindy and Rick for a terrific experience!
Ocean View, HI
Beautiful, clean and comfortable.
Rick and Cindy are wonderful hosts and make your stay the best they can. The pool is very relaxing. The home and grounds are beautiful. It is a very private and peaceful experience.
aloha from oregon
paradise, it was great
it was everything i wanted. the pool, the private lani, the location. paradise in a nut shell. it was awesome and i will go back!!!!
What a Gem!
We were treated to the most lovely stay at the Ohia B&B. Our hosts, Cindy & Rick gave us plenty of privacy and also provided yummy food for the morning. With a pool on site and lots of nearby activities, we'll be sure to go there again!
Fantastic location and amazing breakfast
We stayed here around October 16. This location is amazing because the volcano national park is just 20 miles away, the lava viewing area and the tide pools were within 7 miles and Hilo is about 40 min. We came to this island for a short time and primarily for the volcano so location-wise this place was perfect for us. The breakfasts were sumptuous. Cindy is a darling and made for us, croissants, dutch baby (bakery delicacy haha) and also served really awesome variety of fruits.. She is an encyclopedia of big island, so we chatted with her every morning before heading off and she and her books (The big island revealed) were quite informative. Really if you are staying here, you wont need snorkeling gear or heavy duty flashlights or umbrellas... or a guidebook. She's got it all. The rooms were fine. No AC (trust me..one is not needed)..and no microwave (but that she will fix). Beautiful lanai. Soft music and exquisite collection of orchids, mellow aloha music, tall Ohia trees, chirping... more
Comfy, Homey,Close to town & Ocean, Tropical Paradise
I stayed in this darling B&B for 2 weeks the end of Nov. and early Dec.
Very clean, most comfortable bed ever, awesome swimming pool, Great fresh food,Private and close to everything I needed....village of Pahoa and the Ocean,beach, hot ponds, lava hiking and more! HIGHLY recommend this
it is worth every cent and more!
