Our gracious and low-key hosts tempted us daily with amazing, healthy and tasty locally grown breakfasts and dinners. The AMs were free, but the PMs were a mere $25 pp including house wine which is extremely reasonable. The service was always 5-star and they provided great conversation if we wanted to review our day's plans or what we did. They...

Echoing all the previous excellent reviews, my wife and I had an amazing stay. Kenny and Kilohana took care of us from start to finish. The dinner, breakfasts, and recommendations were perfect. We left so relaxed that we left all of our luggage. They went above and beyond and drove to us to return our belongings. You wouldn't find that...

My husband and I truly enjoyed our two nights at Kalaekilohana. From the great advice we received for where to go on the south end based on our interests, to the perfectly prepared dinner and breakfasts, the super comfortable room and the best hosts ever waving us goodbye at the end of our stay we can't say enough good things...

It's hard to do Kalaekilohana justice in words. As mentioned in many other reviews, the pristine and authentically-Hawaiian experience you'll enjoy starts and ends with your gracious hosts, Kilohana and Kenny. They have built this property from scratch, and their exceptional tastes and touch for hospitality show clearly in every detail of the house and your experience. After first staying...

This is just a beautiful place. It is wonderful to stay in an Inn actually built by the owners, and Kenny and Kilohana are exceptional hosts. It is a great location for either South Point or Volcanoes, and oh-so relaxing. We took a weaving class from Kilohana and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii, even...

From arrival, Kenny and Kilohanna made us feel at home. The home they built and decorated illuminates their hospitality philosophy. They have anticipated every need of their guests to make them comfortable. The room designs, the amenities, and the meals are all well planned. They are also available to advise guests on area attractions and restaurants. Each breakfast was a...

My wife and i have not stayed in many Inns like this, but the experience we had was terrific. All the amenities are in place as stated in other reviews, but what made this place special to us was the hosts, Kenny and Kilohana. We very much enjoyed talking with them each evening on their very comfortable porch and learning...

Arriving at the Inn we were instantly impressed with the beauty of it just driving up to it. Owners Kilohana & Keni were there to greet us and attend to any wishes we had from the moment we stepped onto their property. We stayed 2 nights at the Inn so we could explore the South end of the island. The...

We visited this beautiful B&B during our recent trip to The Big Island, and had such a wonderful time staying here. Kenny and Kilohana were such generous hosts and served such delicious meals! They gave us the best info for traveling around where we were staying, what sites to see, and directions to fun local places to hear music and...

It is hard to know where to start ~ this is one of the best places we have ever stayed! The Inn is beautiful ~ from the guest rooms to the front porch (even the laundry room has extra amenities to make your stay more comfortable). Kenny and Kilohana are the perfect hosts, ready to help you plan your day...
