If you are looking for a quiet and classy retreat on the south part of the Big Island, then look no further than Kalaekilohana.

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

Sometimes, you just get lucky - and this was one of those times for us. I don't know how, but my wife found Kalaekilohana online. Our stay there turned out to be a wonderful experience. The other reviewers do a fine job of describing this special place, built and hosted by special people - so here is my review: Ditto!

My husband, grandson, and I just left one of the most unique and pleasant places in Hawaii. Kilohana and Kenny greet you and send you home waving from the lanai. Both are accomplished artists. Kilohana's feather leis were included in Smithsonian exhibits in New York, Boston, Washington, and Philadelphia. He also is an accomplished weaver. Do not pass up the... More

We were looking for something a bit different and closer to Volcano National Park when we discovered Kalaekilohana. What a gem. As you arrive, Kenny and Kilohana are there to greet you. Thereafter you are in their hands, and what a treat. Their advice on what to see and do, meals and general friendliness make staying there special. Rooms are... More

We loved our stay with Kenny and Kilohana. They were unbelieveable hosts for an unbelievable vacation. The rooms were great, the relaxing setting was wonderful, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would suggest their charcuterie tray for dinner if you get home late. There are few restaurant options within a 30 minute drive and the plate... More

Lovely B&B in remote part of Hawaii. They were awesome hosts that were helpful and accommodating! The bedroom was beautiful, serene, and comfortable. The decor was relaxing and inviting! And, the stocked refrigerator and snacks was an added bonus. Thank you for making our time there memorable, Kenny & Kilohana!

Kenny and Kilohana were the perfect hosts. Their home is lovely and we felt honored to be able to share it with them for a few perfect days. Staying here was the highlight of our trip. I will always remember how special they made us feel. You will love joining Kenny & Kilohana nightly on their comfortable veranda for story... More
