Palms Cliff House Inn
Located atop rocky cliffs overlooking Pohakumanu Bay, this Victorian-style inn is set on a 3½ -acre estate just 15 minutes outside Hilo on the Big Island. A large front lanai (porch) is furnished with wicker chairs and overlooks the orchard, planted with banana, mango, lime, and macadamia nut trees. Inside, each of the eight individually designed rooms includes a private lanai with ocean views, and the suites also have gas fireplaces and in-room Jacuzzi tubs next to the windows. Innkeepers John and Michele Gamble serve a daily breakfast, which may include banana macadamia pancakes, as well as Hawaiian-style afternoon tea.
