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

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

Kalaekilohana is the single greatest inn/hotel/b&b my wife and I have ever had the pleasure to stay at. Honest and attentive service of such high quality that we wish it had been our last stop on the Big Island. So many high points to this stay that I cannot put them all here. TLDR: Kenny and Kilohana will make your... More

This home provided one of the most deeply relaxing experiences I have had on any trip. There is a sense of peace and serenity seemingly in the land itself, as well as the house and the hosts. Kenny and Kilohana were able to provide gluten-free and vegetarian options for both breakfast and the suppers they hosted, and it was all... More

Kilohana and Kenny are amazing hosts. They have a gift for hospitality that can't be learned. From the moment you drive into Kalaekilohana and are greeted by their friendly wave from the beautiful front porch, to the time you are driving out to waves goodbye, you are spoiled with genuine hospitality. The facility and rooms are wonderful. Well designed and... More
