We were 2 families travelling together so we took over the whole place and it was perfect. Although the place is absolutely beautiful it is not stuffy and our kids (ages 25 to 12) were made to feel comfortable and welcome. Kenny and Kilohana are great hosts - very helpful and friendly but not intrusive. And of course the breakfasts were fantastic. We stayed 5 nights and each morning's meal was different but equally wonderful. The first couple nights Kenny and Kilohana were away but we were treated just as well by Marion and Patty. Patty even made us dinner one night, making sure she had something that everyone would like. After spending the day at the Green Sand beach it was heaven to come home to a nice hot shower and a relaxing meal. And Patty packed us lunch the next day with the leftovers! She owns Hana Hou restaurant in town which is really great too and well worth a stop. She also arranged for us to take a tour of a local family coffee farm. And that was a treat - the owners showed us all around then had all of us into their home for their amazing coffee and homemade brownies! When we get back the Big Island we will definately stay at Kalaekilohana again.
