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.

Kailua-Kona Just 3 miles. Very Centrally Located.
After leaving the airport, turn right on Highway 19, which will merge into Highway 11 at Palani Road. Continue on about 2 more miles further south past the town of Kailua-Kona, and watch for a green reflective sign on the right that says Holualoa 3 Miles. Turn left at that intersection and go up the hill. (There is a left turn lane). Our Box Number is 76-770 Hualalai Road.

1.5 miles up this windy road, you will come to 10 MPH signs on the right to slow down for a very sharp horse shoe turn. Also look for the 4 round blue reflectors on the power pole. Our Inn is in the middle of the horse shoe curve on the right. There is a lighted lamp post and a sign above the mailbox, Hale Maluhia Bed & Breakfast . Go clear to the end of the cement driveway to the second garage door. The front door will be on the right, the porch lights will be on.

Please ring the Queen Mary ships bell upon your arrival, we will be looking for you if we know when you are coming.

Note: if coming from Hilo or the volcano and you reach Lako Street on Highway 11, you can turn right and go up to Hualalai Road and turn left (down the hill) to our Inn.

If we don't know your arrival time and no one is at the Inn just go on into the house and make yourselves at home. Scout out a cup of tea if interested, it's OK. We are not touchy, we are way laid back and comfortable.

Peaceful unique B&B up in the hills above Kona.

It is away from the busy tourist areas and very reasonably priced. There are multiple different choices of rooms to stay in. We stayed 3 nights in the upstairs Jasmine Room which was... More
