Lava Flow Up-Dates and Certificate of Excellence
Many of you may have heard the news: Madame Pele is on the move again! The latest lava flow from Kilauea is heading toward our little town of Pahoa! The community is preparing for the impact of the lava and County, State and Federal partners are working on providing necessary access, in the event that Highway 130 - going passed Pahoa - will be cut off by the flow.
Hale Moana Bed & Breakfast is about 7 miles from where the flow is expected to come through. We will be open and will continue to welcome visitors from around the world. The area here is safe and no impact from the lava is to be expected. We are also at a location, where possible smoke or emissions will not affect us, because of the prevailing trade winds usually blowing from the south-east. Should the lava cross Hwy. 130 access to the B&B may change. If or when this happens I will let you know.
Currently, the flow can only be seen from the air. There is no public access to an official viewing area at this time. This may change as conditions become clearer. Please, let me know, if you have any questions or concerns regarding the lava situation.
This year Hale Moana Bed & Breakfast was once again awarded the Certificate of Excellence for 2014 by Tripadvisor and it is one of the leading B&Bs for the Pahoa area. Thank you very much, for the great feedback on Tripadvisor and Google that many of you have given us. It is such a helpful resource for many travelers and we truly appreciate your time and effort in sharing your experiences.
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.
I wish you and your families a wonderful Fall Season. I look forward to hearing from you and it would be wonderful to welcome you here at beautiful Hale Moana Bed & Breakfast,
Many Mahalos, blessings and my warmest Alohas,
