Epic waterfall and friendly staff
We arrived in the middle of the night, and had no idea how beautiful the space near the Inn was! We woke up in the morning and were pleasantly surprised. The private waterfall is way more epic in person than in the photos. The ladies who work at the Inn were very sweet, and friendly. The two mile drive into the property is stunning, and breakfast is served with macadamia nuts from their farm. The bamboo garden on the property was also a welcome surprise. The only negative is that we got the King K. room, for the view, but the've put up some shading over the patio so we couldn't actually see the waterfall.

Fabulous Inn and waterfall!
A great place to stay. The drive up through the macadamia nut orchards is a single lane road. Follow the signs and you arrive at the Inn. We were met by Jasmine, the manager. She showed us the view and explained about the waterfall. Usually you can swim down in the pool below the waterfall however due to the very strong rains, swimming wasn't allowed. We ventured down the trail to see it up close. Magnificent!! The room was great, with big fluffy pillows and a very comfortable bed. The is an attached private bathroom. No air conditioning, but there is a fan that works well. We stayed in the Jasmine room in the Harmony house. The best sleep ever, with the sounds of the forest, the raging waterfall, the thunder and lightning!!! Breakfast consisted of fruits, sweetbreads, Joghurt, granola, bagels, coffee and tea. The Inn is completely off the grid. Water is captured rain water, and electricity is by turbines above waterfall or solar panels. They have a filtration machine to get fresh rain water for the water bottles. Overall the best place ever!

B&B with a View
We definitely enjoyed our stay at the Inn of Kulaniapia Falls. The rooms were nice, a gentle breeze was in the air, breakfast was a good continental one with delicious muffins, island fruits, and cereals, and, most important, the view was stunning with the falls at our doorstep. The hospitality was certainly grand as everyone on staff was so very helpful and cordial. We particularly enjoyed our walk to the falls and partook of the kayaks available for our use. So fun. The beautiful grounds enhanced our enjoyment of nature. It doesn't get any better.

lovely waterfall and tropical forest views!
The views of this place are AMAZING!!! The staff was super friendly, and breakfast was included in the price. No parking fees or resort fees like some of the larger resorts. I can appreciate that. We really felt part of nature at this place. We loved it!
