We just completed another stay at the wonderful Kalaekilohana on South Point Road, the Big Island of Hawai’i. This slice of paradise hosted by Kenny and Kilohana is tastefully appointed throughout to portray the local flora and fauna and the Hawaiian culture. The floral arrangements, by Kilohana, of local protea are throughout the entire Inn to enjoy. The food preparation... More

Beautiful place with so many great qualities! It is a one in a million type of B&B which borders on a small hotel. This is a house that was built with light, space and sound in mind.

Each room is exquisitely furnished and the finishing touches and amenities available are of the highest quality. We took full advantage of Kenny's fabulous cooking (breakfasts everyday, and... More

What a special place to stay! The property is just beautiful and the food is delicious! Each dish is a piece of art made with the freshest ingredients grown locally on the island. The rooms are lovely and everything you need is provided. A wonderful place to escape and relax.

A truly wonderful experience. Kenny and Kilohana were amazing hosts. Full of great advice on what to do on the island. Breakfasts out of this world with locally sourced produce. We had dinner there every evening and I would highly recommend doing so. Amazing food! Rooms are beautiful. One of my favourite things to do was to sit on the... More

My husband and I live on the Big Island but sought a quality inn --not a resort scene--elsewhere on the island for an anniversary get away.Trip Advisor ratings led us to Kalaekilohana Inn. We were not disappointed. A real retreat feeling at the southern Kau district of the island, a beautifully constructed property, furnishings, & grounds with lovely, comfortable Hawaiian... More

If you are looking for a wonderful, low key, impeccable attention to detail, incredible food, vacation; you have found it! Kenny and Kilohana are tremendous hosts. Kenny is a top notch chef and his food blew us away. Most of the contents of the table centers are hand made by Kilohana. My wife and I stayed in the south east... More

We called Kenny and Kilo Hana, the proprietors of the inn to let them know we would be a late check in. They waited for us and met us with a glass of wine which was sorely needed after a long journey from the east coast. During the entire stay, they couldn't have been more gracious. The breakfasts were "continental"... More

What a wonderful three day stay with gracious and welcoming hosts! The Avocado Suite provided a comfortable respite, the food was delicious and Kenny and Kilohana provided expert advice for our daily adventures. The inn is conveniently located near the southern-most point on the island which makes it easy to tour Volcano National Park to the east on one day... More
