We stayed in a suite at the Jacaranda Inn for one evening. Our suite seemed very private, with entrances through a maze of hedges and foliage. It was spacious with a living room, large king-sized bedroom and jacuzzi bath. The 100 year old property was nicely updated, but still retained its historic charm. The weather in Waimea was bad when...

have been working on the Big Island for the last two years. The condo work put in recently sold. Hence, I needed to find temporary lodging. The place is amazing and forces you unplug from our digital world and take in the beauty of the house and grounds. Some reviews talk about the musty smell of the main house, but...

I checked in here on February 8 for two days while I was on business as it was equidistant to where I was travelling. I stayed in the Anthurium room for two nights which if I hadn't prepaid, I would have checked right out. Upon opening the slatted wood door and then the glass door, I instantly smelled mildew and...

I've been coming to the Big Island of Hawaii for many years and visit Waimea every time I'm here. I've always wanted to stay at the Jacaranda Inn, because it looks so lovely from the road. And it is lovely -- lots of history and a beautiful setting. If you approach it with low expectations, you won't be disappointed. There's...

I was not disappointed. Read the "musty" comments, no problem. They get a lot of rain her, what do you expect? We had a huge room and bathroom, sit down shower. I liked it a lot. The weather was great, cool, damp, windy. Very refreshing.

What a unique place in a spectacular setting. We were the only guests in the Inn both night we stayed there. The room was very spacious and homey. I walked about the property and it was like exploring an abandoned world so obviously very quiet. There are dining rooms, parlors, a bar and a billiard room all worth seeing and...

We stayed one night in the Hibiscus Room and enjoyed our stay. We always like places that have some history and feel more connected to the place than cheap hotels. The room was larger than expected and nicely appointed. As others have mentioned, there were hints that the place needs some renewed energy and vision but the location and history...

We spent three nights here in December and unfortunately we were very sad to see how a place of such historical significance and beautiful natural setting seems to be in such decline, as if nature is claiming it back. Our room was so musty and damp that the dehumidifier filled within 6 hours and shut off. The room was also...

As one with some background in historic preservation in Hawaii, it was a particular pleasure to be able to stay at a property with the Jacaranda Inn’s rich heritage and charm but modern-day comfort, wiring and plumbing. Much of the historic fabric and certainly the character of the original construction remains, and what may not be original at least is...

Although many good reviews on TA we did not share this experience. We stayed only one night at the Inn and immediately upon entering the big house to check in it smelled very musty. We were ushered way out back to one the farthest rooms away. I think there were only 4 cars in the whole place. The room was...
