Head to toe attention to detail with an artistic component throughout. Great food, great music, great artwork, great accommodations. Kenny & Kilohana are exceptional hosts. After 3 days, it felt like we were all part of the same Ohana.

We ended our 7 day vacation (and 1st time to the big island) with a two night stay here. All the reviews are true - Kilohana and Kenny are the absolute best hosts. The inn is comfortable, adorable, and is fully stocked with anything you could ever want. The location is perfect to see some attractions, especially the volcano. We... More

There is hardly anything I can add to the previous reviews. Kenny and Kilohana excel at hosting - they could teach a college-level course in the subject. Oh...they could teach a cooking course as well. They served the MOST delicious meals (that btw were also healthy) that were so welcomed while on vacation. Kalaekilohana Inn was actually more beautiful than... More

My wife and I were on the big island for our honeymoon and we were looking for somewhere out of the ordinary to stay on our last night. So we picked here. Our only regrets are that we did not stay here earlier in our trip and also that we only stayed a single night. Kenny and Kilohana are two... More

My husband and I stayed with Kilohana and Kenny during our honeymoon. This was one of the highlights of our trip. The Inn is exquisite, and the Kilohana and Kenny made us feel so special. Their hospitality is unmatched; they truly go above and beyond. The room was great. No detail is overlooked, and they constantly surprised us with their... More

From the moment you arrive, it is evident that Kilohana and Kenny are passionate about the inn that they run and the patrons they serve. Kenny is always on the front porch to greet you on your way in, no matter what time of day it is, and both of them enjoy sitting with the guests on the front porch... More

We decided on a whim to take a trip back to the Big Island last month, making it 3 years in a row. We planned our week around the dates that were open at Kalaekilohana as we loved it so much the prior two stays. We actually selected the Big Islands again over the other Islands specifically to stay here... More

We are a small venue in a special location that thrives because our guests are willing to share us with others. We enjoy what we do, we’re... More

If you go to Big Island, Kalaekilohana Inn cannot be missed! Kilohana and Kenny are two fantastic hosts and they made us feel at home right away. Everything was so nice and comfortable and the breakfasts were simply amazing. Location was also perfect. We really had a great time. Thank you Kilohana and Kenny! Next time we are on Big... More

To stay at the home of Kilohana and Kenny is a wonderfully relaxing, happy experience. If you have a plan for the day, they will help you make it better. No plan, no worries, because they will take the time to work one out with you. And really, it would be perfectly fine to just while away the day at... More

Out of the 5 B&Bs we've visited on the big island, this one had the warmest and personalized hospitality with a focus on local culture. On arrival, the hosts recognized our wedding anniversary with a very special welcome surprise on their Cupula! This set the stage for an amazing stay and we hope to return to visit Kenny & Kilohana.... More
