We spent two lovely nights at Kalaekilohana, enjoying the great hospitality of hosts Kenny and Kilohana. Our two children were very well looked after and felt very comfortable in this beautiful property. The rooms were spacious and delightfully furnished, with a great breakfast emphasising local produce available each morning, prepared fresh by Kenny. We really appreciated the freely available drinks and snacks, the relaxed atmosphere, the fast wifi in all parts of the property, and the commitment by our hosts to making sure we had as much local knowledge and advice about the south of Big Island as we needed. Highly recommended.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights and it was not enough. We dined both breakfast and dinner there by Chef Kenny and it was beyond delicious. I loved how all of the food was locally sourced. Complimentary drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) were offered 24 hours at the fridge. After our meal, we joined Kilohana and Kenny outside at the porch, where we just relaxed and talked. I felt like I was at home. They also offered complimentary laundry (both washing machine and drying machine). It was nice to wash your clothes before your next destination. Definitely coming back again soon! Thank you so much for your amazing service and hospitality!
Four of us stayed for six nights and loved every minute of it. Kenny and Kilohana could not have been more hospitable and helpful. The food was excellent; the ambiance very warm and welcoming; the rooms first-rate. We shall return.
Kenny and Kilohana were consummate hosts, welcoming us to their beautiful inn, bending over backwards to ensure we had everything we needed for maximum comfort and enjoyment, sharing tips about the area, and bringing warmth, great conversation, and thoughtfulness to a bed-and-breakfast encounter that in others' hands is sometimes merely transactional. Wholeheartedly recommend, and we'll look forward to staying with them again. (Plus, Kenny is an excellent chef and Kilohana a beautiful artist. Take a meal or three while you're there, and peruse Kilohana's works!)
A wonderful little gem off the beaten path. Kilohana and Kenny are wonderful hosts. They have 4 spacious, clean, island decorated, private bath rooms. They make lovely, portion appropriate, healthy and tasty breakfast and you can also get a delicious dinner with advanced notice (which is highly recommended as there are no other services around). The large veranda is a wonderful place to read or visit with the hosts or other guests.
