Aloha Friends!
I am sending my Alohas to you and your families for the Holidays and wish you the very best for the New Year. This is the time of the year when we are all coming closer together and are thankful for the wonderful things we have in our lives. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you - our guests, friends and partners for staying at our B&B, your loyalty, patronage and support.

During the last year I have hosted several travel writers and Hale Moana Bed & Breakfast will continue to be in the Lonely Planet as the Top Choice for the area, Let's Go Hawaii, Moon Travel Guide and now also in the German travel guide Reise KnowHow. We are also listed in three Japanese publications and many on-line directories. There will be write ups in several travel sections of leading German newspapers, i.e. Welt am Sonntag, Mitteldeutsche Zeitung, Passauer Neue Presse and others. Earlier in the year the B&B was featured in the May/June 2013 issue of the Hawaii Hospitality Magazine.

Pohoiki - Red Road - Puna
Hale Moana Bed & Breakfast now offers three suites with living room and kitchenette and one studio. All have private bathrooms and separate entrances. Your comfort and enjoyment during your stay is of utmost importance to us. I strive to make your family vacation or romantic getaway as memorable and relaxing as possible. The details and the privacy of our suites reflect the sense of caring and Aloha that we extend to our guests. We welcome families with children and are fully set up to accommodate them. Free Wi-Fi, laundry facilities, a BBQ grill, snorkels & masks, maps, and a shelf full of local resource information is available to our guests.

Thermally heated Hot Ponds - Puna
This last year presented a good number of personal challenges for the children and I, but we were able to overcome the trials and are now looking strengthened into a bright future.  The children are getting bigger and are doing great. I feel very blessed and would like to thank you again - our guests, partners, friends and community for staying with us, your support and loyalty over the years. I hope to see you or hear from you in the New Year. Please, stay in touch!
