I bought a cap (my favorite ever) at this great old fashion general store on our vacation in Hawaii. When I got home the cap blew overboard and we were unable to retrieve it. I emailed Thea (the owner) who promptly mailed me out a new one after making sure she had the right cap still available. I received it... More

The proprietress is welcoming and the store itself has to be seen to be appreciated. All the things they found are now wonderfully displayed and its a great story to hear. The food is yummy, and the cookies, especially the macnut butter cookies are delish!

An interesting stop along the way. Lots of items to look at from a bygone era, and many for sale. Almost a free museum, with a general store all wrapped up in one. The owner was friendly and helpful. She Introduced us the apple bananas and we bought some to try. They are not as sweet as regular bananas and... More

Stopped by to see the place and to have a mid morning snack. The store has old fashioned, quirky items, food and souvenir-like, to make it worth stopping for. Tried some good home-made cookies and accompanied this with a cold beverage of coconut water. Picked up some ginger and peanut butter candy that is far from ubiquitous Excellent

If you're looking for an example of old Hawaii, stop here. There's tons of old "new" stock. The hamburgers are great. Really nice view from the eating area. Local made gifts. Worth a detour.

We really enjoyed visiting the store. It is part gift store (with many locally made items), part museum, and part restaurant. They had a big selection of homemade cookies that were delicious. The store is on the Kona Heritage Corridor, just south of Holualoa (which also has many different artisan stores with locally made items).

The Keauhou Store is tucked away along the Kona Heritage Corridor and when you come across it, you want to stop and see what they have. It is a beautiful step into the past of Old Hawaii, where it is part museum and part local store with fresh fruit and vegetables for sale, homemade cookies that are delicious, and friendly... More

The Keauhou Store can be found up above Kona on the "Kona Heritage Corridor." It's a lovingly restored 1919 general store with original inventory on display as well as food, produce, baked goods, art work, jewelry and vintage items like 1950s cruise line menu covers that look like Hawaiian Diego Rivera paintings (sorry readers but I bought these). We chatted... More

First of all this really isn't in Holualoa but in Honalo area. Just souith of Holualoa. It was run for years by one owner and unfortunately he passed away. It was taken over and remodeled to its former glory. Great place to visit and learn about the old times and to just get a cold drink.

This general store is partly a museum of historical artifacts, partly a general store of hip (and, often, locally made) hard goods, artwork, packaged foods and local produce, and partly a take-out/counter diner for a lovely snack and drinks. Just don't miss it!! Keauhou Store exudes the charm of Territorial Hawaii that exists no more.
