Hawaii Island is the largest island in the Hawaiian Chain, having more land mass than all of the other islands put together. The Kona side of the island. Hawaii Island is the least populated of all the islands and still very provincial in many ways. The Kona International Airport (KOA) is fast becoming the final destination point for the wise visitor to Hawaii. Due to the new runway extensions, The Big Island has 11 out of 13 world climates and was the favorite island of relaxation for King Kamehameha. As the youngest of the Islands, the surrounding blue Pacific Ocean is one of clearest ocean waters found anywhere with many fine beaches on the Kona side of the island. Kailua Kona is located on the dry side of the Big Island with only 30" of rain and lots of sun every year. Hawaii Island is the least populated of all the islands.

Kailua-Kona overflows with history. In 1812 King Kamehameha resided at Kamakahonu (Kailua-Kona) until his death on May 8, 1819 on Kailua Bay. The missionaries first landed in Hawaii at Kailua-Kona on April 20 1820 a few months after the Kapu system had been destroyed by the Hawaiian People. Touch of Hawaii History: http://hawaii-inns.com/history/index.htm

Conde Nast elected Hapuna Beach, only 30 minutes north of Kailua, as one of the 10 best white sand beaches in the world. Kailua-Kona hosts the Ironman Triathlon in October each year, the Kona Coffee Festival begins at the end of October. .Guests should allow at least 4 days to take even a quick over view of the Big Island of Hawaii, a week would not be regretted. Driving time around the Big Island of Hawaii is about 5 hours. Remember, Hilo is the wettest city in the U.S. with 10 feet of rain per year. At the volcano it is even wetter rain forest. Some feel it wise to anchor on the Kona dry side of the Island for exploring the Big Island of Hawaii. Kona is the dry and sunny side of the Big Island. It is also close to world class beaches, historical sites, marlin fishing, good shopping and many places to explore. The Big Island still has that gentle touch of Aloha from old Hawai'i. Kona is where the historical kings (Alii) of Hawaii elected to live.

The near acre is covered with big shade trees for a very comfortable summer.

Surf: Hale Maluhia Country Inn

Trip Adviser: “A real gem” 5 stars
Reviewed January 3, 2013 NEW
We stayed at this B&B for two nights over Christmas and were delighted with our accommodations. We chose the Japanese cottage, which is more expensive than the other rooms but well worth the cost. Breakfast on Christmas morning was elaborate, and Sana delivered some lovely gifts the night before. Breakfast the second day did not meet our expectations, but overall we were very pleased with our stay. The owners are hospitable and let us leave our luggage after we checked out. The location is about 10 minutes drive from Kona. For people who do not care about staying on the ocean front. this is an excellent location.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple
