Staying at a lovely home here. In this small historic village, a few miles from Kailue up a windy narrow road, you will find a friendly vintage community with many of the original buildings intact. Hard to walk along the main road as there are small shoulders on a busy road. The main road has galleries, a great coffee shop... More

The village is small with no sidewalks between shops. Since the road is narrow and cars tend to speed, it's not a pleasant place for a stroll (as I had hoped). I arrived on a Saturday in May around 1:15 pm, coming in from Keauhou area via Hualalai Rd off Highway 11. The weather was decent, so the 3-mile drive... More

The highway was quite pretty, but since it was raining, we could not appreciate the views down below. We visited a nice art gallery, a jewelry shop, and a coffee shop (which fortunately had a public bathroom), but many of the other shops were closed up, which was disappointing. There is also very little parking, other than pulling off the... More

A visit to Holualoa Village can be fun and expose you to some wonderful native Hawaiian craftspeople. We have been several times but were there recently for a return visit. There are a number of shops and some have fairly standard souvenirs, but others have special items that make the trip worthwhile. We would particularly recommend the Dovetail Gallery (high... More

K. Komo is a small store on the old hiway north of Holualoa. Mr. and Mrs Komo are there to help you. They run the store as well as their nearby coffee estate. Outward appearance of the store is somewhat like a small, old Hawaiian-style 7-11 and you can buy food, drinks, beer, snacks, ice cream, necessities for an outing... More

A scenic 15 minute drive up the Hualalai road from Kailua-Kona brings you to this hillside village town called Holualoa. Big Island of Hawaii has 5 mountains and three of those are active volcanic mountains - Mauna Loa (active), Kilauea (active), Hualalai (active), Mauna Kea and Kohala. Holualoa village is sitting on the Hualalai mountain. Volcano not only takes life,... More

Except for the Holualoa Gallery, the shops are small and dusty with limited, mostly inconsequential, yet expensive items. There are no bathrooms which is also an issue after the trek to get out that way. The drive out there is tedious and for the time and mileage a trip to Pu'uhonua o Honaunau is much more beautiful and educational.

Not too far off the beaten path you will find this lovely village which seems frozen in time. There used to be several art galleries and craft shops which have migrated to higher traffic areas due to the economy, but don't give this place a pass just because of that. There are still some shops open, a sweet coffee shop,... More
