Staying at Kalaekilohana was the smartest splurge we made during our visit to the Big Island. The space was divine, the food was superb, and the "travel agent" advice was invaluable for navigating this raw, widespread and rather remote part of the island. Do Not Miss Out on the Dinners! The food is first-rate, and the setting is sublime. We... More

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. I didn't want to leave Kalaekilohana when it was time to check out. I begged Kenny and Kilohana to let me stay and work for room and board - I think they thought I was kidding...I wasn't! (The offer is still open if you guys are reading this...I'll be on the next flight just let me know!) My now... More

We spent our honeymoon in Hawaii and our experience at Kalaekilohana was exceptional. The inn is very well kept and comfy. With two weeks on vacation it was very nice to be able to stay at a place like home. The inn provided us the quiet relaxed setting we were desiring on the Big Island. Kenny and Kilohana give very...

We have recently returned from a 10 day touring holiday on Big Island and spent 3 nights at Kalaekilohana. Where do I begin! Everything about it was fantastic. Kilohana and Kenny made us feel really welcome and were so knowledgeable about the area it was great. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished and the food is of an extremely... More

Our stay at Kalaekilohana surpassed our high expectations set by previous Trip Advisor reviews. Kenny and Kilohana are the most wonderful hosts of this unique B&B. They freely offer warm welcomes, casual company, and excellent guidance and advice on planning you daily activities - and the advice given is spot-on! The bedrooms are large and casually luxurious with immaculate attention... More

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
