With three daughters and two grand kids this was the place to shop for everything the wife wanted. Specialty shops and adventure tours included. Lunch with the ocean view was nice, cold beverage while the wife shopped was an added bonus.

I enjoyed the shops, galleries and especially the little coffee shop that served the best frappe I've ever tasted. Spent most of the afternoon in the back of Inn watching the waves and enjoying some peace.

This village is full of places to shop including apparal, food, coffee, and hawaiian handmade goods! There is a great variety of shopping at this location. We were able to get some wonderful coffee, and some apparal! :) The shops are all pretty close together...More

Lots of shops including galleries, clothing, gifts, coffee, souvenirs etc all walkable. Primary building use to be the first hotel in Kona where steamships brought tourists.
