Kenny and Kilohana are both amazing hosts who go above and beyond to make sure their guests have the absolute best time. The property itself is gorgeous and built by Kenny and Kilohana to be a luxurious guest house. Kenny is a great chef that offers dinner and you would be foolish to not take him up on it every night that you are there. Kilohana made sure we were well informed about what to do in the area and even let us use some trekking poles for a hike. When we come back to the Big Island, Kalaehilohana will be our number one choice of places to stay.

This was an amazing place to stay! I really wish we could have stayed longer. It was the perfect location if you wanted to visit the southern most point of the United States. They were so friendly and the food was delicious!

I wish I could be writing a review of our lovely birthday trip to this inn but, thanks to the pandemic, we had to cancel on short notice. Instead, I'm writing this review to thank the owners for being incredibly gracious and forthcoming with the last-minute cancellation. They immediately offered a full refund, despite their clearly stated policy showing that I was well into the no-refund period, and were extremely gracious in all communications. It is clear that they are first-class hosts and I look forward to being able to stay there in better days.

This is our favorite B and B on the Big Island. Kilohana and Kenny are the best hosts attending to every detail. We have stayed there many times and always look forward to returning. The rooms are very comfortable and delightful. It is very quiet so one can totally relax and refresh. There are always fresh flowers around the house and rooms. Their porch is a natural place to gather and chat especially after dinner. Kenny is a wonderful chef. His breakfasts are creative and healthy. We also enjoy dinners there where there is always a creative twist whether some local caught fish or a fine steak. Kilohana is very informative about the culture and best places to hike or visit. We would highly recommend staying here on your next visit to the Big Island. We also enjoy the other guests that come. It is truly a treat to stay here. If you want to get away from the tourist crowds, see the scenic historic South Point and green beach this is the place to stay. You can also do laundry there which is nice when hiking and such. It is a place to come and leave all our troubles behind

We were supposed to be staying at Kalaekilohana Inn in April for 3 days, but as we all know, travel is now impossible and so our plans to visit the Big Island have been put on hold. The owners of the Inn were very gracious and gave us a full refund even though they already have a great cancellation policy of giving you 100% credit for a year. (Other places were not so generous) We will definitely be coming to visit you in the future and are looking forward to the meals we've been hearing about!
