The Inn at Kulaniapia: View MLS 247766
Bedrooms: 14 | Baths: 13.5 | Land area: 21.9 acres
The Inn at Kulaniapia is one of only a few fully licensed Bed & Breakfast properties currently available for sale in the State of Hawaii. This stunning tropical estate is located about 15 minutes above Hilo on 22 lush acres and boasts not only ocean and waterfall views, but also what is quite possibly the largest accessible waterfall in the State.
The Inn offers the ultimate Hawaiian experience with easy walking trails along the Waiau River, the Falls at Kulaniapia, several smaller waterfalls, bamboo gardens and macadamia nut orchards. The Inn was built as a country inn, and offers 8500+ sq. ft. of living area with 14 bedrooms, 13 baths (10 suites which are currently available for rent – most with waterfall or ocean views) in 3 fully equipped homes (Residence, Pagoda and Harmony House) plus an additional spa building with a hot tub.
The main residence features 4 beautifully appointed upstairs guest suites, each with a separate entrance. Downstairs, in the private living area, there are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths plus a beautifully appointed living room with a fireplace, TV room, built-in entertainment center and family-style kitchen.
In keeping with its unspoiled natural environment, the Inn is one of Hawaii’s few “green” Bed & Breakfasts. It is fully powered by its own State permitted hydroelectric facility. The Inn at Kulaniapia has been in continuous operation for over 13 years and has a well-established client base. The business is additionally supported by its own brand, an automated booking system and the waterfall.net website. The Inn is being offered TURNKEY and fully furnished.
The possibilities that come to mind with this spectacular property are endless. Although there is excellent value in the Bed & Breakfast operation, this property would also lend itself to other possibilities such as a wellness center, retreat center, corporate get-away, or simply a family compound.
Guest reviews include:
“The pictures and website do not do it justice. The waterfall is breathtaking and a swim in the cool pool at the base will take your breath away.”
“This is a lovely place to stay. Beautiful grounds. We slept great with the sound of the waterfall. We would come back to Hilo just to stay here.”
“Great location. Lovely place to unwind. We stayed four nights and they were all fantastic. Swim in the pond, hike the trails, take the few minutes drive into Hilo or north to the Botanical Gardens. Hilo had great restaurants and good shopping. There were many tranquil places to sit, relax, and soak up the peace.”
“The views of the Pacific are breathtaking. Add to that the views and sounds of the majestic waterfall and it was like no place we have ever been before.”
