“A Great Quick Visit”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

I visited this church twice during July 2014, and was impressed both times. The wall and ceiling paintings in this church are wonderful. I have to admit that I wonder how much longer this open church will be able to maintain these colorful paintings however, because it is obvious the heat and humidity of Hawaii are taking their toll. There's a pleasant walk up behind the church, restrooms in the hall, plenty of parking, a small area for gifts, but there could be more historical information

“Beautiful Paintings”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

The Painted Church is on the way to the Place of Refuge(turn at the side road that says Painted Church Rd.) and worth a quick stop. Most people won't need more than five or ten minutes to view the art. If you're here on Wednesday, come early so that you miss the tour buses from the cruise ship.

“Good stop when looking for Captain Cook's monument”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

The attraction is fairly easy to find. However, it was a little bit disappointed considering the emphasis that had\s been given to the advertizements done. It is still a nice drive and neat to see. Just thought it might have been considerably larger in size and number of paintings. Still worth seeing.

“Nice Stop”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I was driving around the island and spotted the sign "Painted Church" and decided to check it out and I am glad that I did. The small church sits on a hillside looking over the bay. The setting alone makes it worth the spot.

From the outside the church looks pretty plane. The inside is another story. There are paintings depicting bible stories.

“Pretty drive, beautiful church”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

It was a beautiful drive. The church is just beautiful and it was really neat to read about the history of the church and those who had been there, served there.
