My stay at Kalaekilohana was wonderful, even though I wrote "great" twice in my title. Kenny, a co-owner, made sumptuous breakfasts and took special care to make sure that everyone was given food that matched the person's preference. For example, Kenny made loco moko for me and me mudder and boco moko for my wife. It was gravy-tastic; my arteries are still smiling.
Kilohana, the other co-owner, was a wonderful expert on Hawaiian culture. Sadly, we did not take one of his classes, but we plan to the next time we visit. Snorkeling and volcanoes were calling this time around.
Finally, the two are wonderful, engaging and very funny hosts. I felt like I was at home when I was there, with my two very clever uncles who have a penchant for bon mots. For those who complained about service, please realize that Kenny and Kilohana aim to please and try not to disturb your privacy; they generally accommodate reasonable requests and do not intrude into your room unless asked. Remember that when assessing your wastebasket.
