My wife and I arrived at Kalaekilohana after 4 days at one of the Kohala mega-resorts. What a welcome change. With only 4 guest rooms, there is none of the hubub, and you aren't sacrificing anything in terms of that pampered feeling. The hosts (Kenny & Kilohana) will greet you warmly and look after your needs in an attentive but... More

If you are visiting the southern part of the Big Island of Hawaii and want a quiet luxurious place to stay with fantastic breakfasts then Kalaekilohana is the place for you! Kenny and Kilohana are wonderful hosts, the nicely furnished rooms are spacious and have private baths (a must!) and it's peacefully quite. The lovely inn was built by Kenny... More

Initially, we chose Kalaekilohana because we wanted to be close to the volcanoes and away from the big resort fray. The choice was better than we imagined! With four rooms, the inn is small and quiet — and Kilohana & Kenny welcome you as friends in their home. Their hospitality *makes* the stay! The rooms are very comfortable, with all... More

Never have I felt so much like I was at home while on vacation. That's due to the amazing service and valuable knowledge of local attractions, events, and restaurants on the part of Kenny and Kilohana. Their knowledge of where (and when) to go, the healthiest breakfasts I've ever had, and warm camaraderie on the lanai in the evenings made... More

This was my second trip to Kalaekilohana. I already can't wait for the next one. I've had the privilege of staying at some truly wonderful inns around the world, and Kalaekilohana is my favorite. Kenny & Kilohana made me feel at home from the moment I arrived to the moment I left, with them waving good-bye from the porch. They... More

My wife and I spent 6 days at Kalaekilohana as part of our 10th anniversary trip to Hawaii. We were amazed at Kenny & Kilohana's attention to detail in every aspect of their business. A comfortable, spacious, and tastefully decorated room was just the beginning. Every morning, a perfectly planned and artfully plated breakfast including 4-5 types of fruit as... More

I had the pleasure of staying twice and both Kilohana and Kenny are wonderful hosts, sharing the love of their inn. Their attention to detail, including delicious dinners and breakfasts, makes the Kalaekilohana Inn a special place to relax and experience the beauty of Hawaii.

We had a great experience staying at the inn. The room was very specious & all amenities you would need were there. The location was exactly in the middle of all activities/sites that we wanted to experience. It was so quiet at night; we truly appreciated the relaxing time we spent w/Kilohana & Kenny in the evenings. Great alternative to... More

We travel a lot and always try and find gems - boutique hotels, B&Bs etc. With Kalaekilohana I can honestly say, without hyperbole, we hit the jackpot. It's the perfect location between Kona (1 hr 15) and the volcano (1 hr). Kenny was very responsive early on and he booked is into the Avocado suite (we had our 12-year old... More
