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

We found this Inn at the last minute in our car travel around Hawaii Big Island and we were so sorry not to have found it earlier as we could only spend one night there. We arrived late afternoon and were greeted on the porch by Kenny and Kilohana, who introduced us to the other guests who were lounging on... More

Wow. Really an amazing jewel. I have never wanted to actually stay still on vacation until I found this place. It is just awesome. Between the family style dinner, the accessible stocked fridge on the porch, the amazingly comfortable seating on the lanai with cozy blankets and a beautiful view on the horizon, to the spacious and comfortable rooms. Everything... More

Stayed for two nights but wish I could have stayed longer. It felt like HOME! Kenny and Kilohana are authentically warm and engaging. The food was amazing...in fact, we stayed at 2 other places on the island and meals here were by far the best. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable and the bathrooms were beautiful. There was even... More
