We enjoyed our excursion to this unique little town. The art galleries were beautiful and the shop owners so friendly. We especially enjoyed chatting with the owner of the ukulele shop.

We loved our visit to the village. We particularly enjoyed Shelley Maudsley's gallery. Her paintings are so vibrant and stunning. She was very friendly to us and clearly enjoys talking about her art and processes.

A quiet little artist colony, shops offer all kinds of art with a wide appeal. Make a morning or afternoon of it and find everything from handmade glass jewelry to paintings for your walls.

This was once a little Japanese village along the road, now filled with art galleries and boutiques. Fun art and jewelry to see.

We wanted a break from traditional visitor activities so drove up the hill to explore this village. It's very quaint and fun with just a few galleries operated by very nice and knowledgable artists. The cafe and coffee shops are also very good.

This village is just uphill from Kailua-Kona. Most of the old homes and commercial buildings are now art galleries, hotels, and restaurants. The one road is narrow and parking is limited, but there is a small lot at the southern entrance. In between the buildings...More

We took the drive up the road as it looked interesting on the map. Lovely views and a nice twisty road through beautiful trees and flowers. Quite rural and not much visibility most of the time. When we arrives at the Village, we were the...More

The concept of an “old town” opening up its culture to tourists and visitors is a good concept. Holualoa Village is on the “old, narrow, windinghighway”, but on a Friday, only a handful of art galleries and a coffee shop were open. There was a...More

We were here for the annual Coffee Festival, so the entire town is packed with tents and vendors selling coffee and Hawaiian food and gifts. But the regular stores were all open and there were lots of quaint and cute stores selling unique Hawaii merchandise,...More
