The Palms Cliff House Inn is perched high on a cliff overlooking the ocean, on the tropical east side of the Big Island of Hawaii, just north of Hilo.
When we were considering our lodging options, on the Big Island of Hawaii, we set out to experience a variety of alternatives.
We have learned from past experience that a well run Bed & Breakfast can create a whole different perspective, and perhaps help you better saturate yourself in the local atmosphere.
We found The Palms Cliff House Inn to be in a stunning location, absolute tranquility, and clearly owned by Innkeepers who have paid attention to all the little details.
From the moment you drive down the palm tree lined drive, and turn the corner to gaze upon what appears to be a mansion tucked away on this majestic cliff, your spirit will long to sit on your own private lanai and melt away into the beauty that surrounds you.
For our stay, we chose the Orchid Suite which was beautifully appointed, provided a large two-person Jacuzzi which overlooked Pohakumanu Bay, and was clearly designed with romance, tranquility, and privacy in mind.
Sitting on our private lanai we listened to song birds we have never heard, the crashing of the waves below, watched a mother whale with her calf play in the bay, and could simply feel all our cares begin to wash away.
Another very pleasant surprise was our breakfast served on a large lanai serving up another perspective of the Pohakumanu Bay below. But that wasn’t all, the food was incredible! For breakfast The Palms Cliff House Inn serves up things like Apple Banana Pancakes, Taro Bread French Toast, and Mango Dutch Bake. We also enjoyed freshly baked muffins, fresh fruit, and of course great Kona Coffee. By the second morning, I was prancing around the room waiting for 7:30 to arrive so we could experience another wonderful breakfast.
If you plan to spend some time on the east side of the Big Island of Hawaii, we can highly recommend John and Michele Gamble’s Palms Cliff House Inn.
