These people are World Class hoteliers who operate an intimate, secluded sanctuary in a secluded yet accessible part of authentic Hawaii that is as breathtakingly beautiful as it is luxurious and fun! Located at the Southern tip of the Big Island of Hawaii, this authentic Inn is a five minute drive from the Southern Most point of land in the...

We're grateful for your kind thoughts. We have worked hard to develop the full-service approach that sets us apart from the rest. As we enter our 12th year, we're reminded how important our guests comments have been in helping us to be better at what we do. We appreciate the high praise.

We stayed four overnights in October last year. We were heartily greeted by the innkeepers Kilohana and Kenny. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Kalaekilohana right from the moment we arrived. We had many memorable moments but we particularly liked spending time with Kilohana and Kenny and other guests relaxing on the lanai after dinner, going over the day’s events and...

Mahalo nui for your wonderful gastronomic compliments. We locally source as much as we are able and we work hard to stay connected to the food we eat and share. Thanks for noting our focus on balanced and healthy meals. We're big on whole grains and fresh locally sourced fruits and vegetables at breakfast and dinner. When we are rewarded...

You will not forget your stay at the Kalaekilohana Inn. The "Spirit of Aloha" is alive and well at this place. The location if perfect for visiting Volcanoes National Park, the South Point area, and the south Kona coast.

The most wonderful bed and breakfast with service that makes you feel like family! The owners specially prepare magnificent culinary works of art from all of the local foods. You have everything you need in the rooms. We loved sitting on the porch drinking wine in the Hawaii breeze. A treasure for sure!

Absolutely beautiful piece of property. It was so peaceful and meticulously maintained. Although we did a lot during our stay we would have been perfectly happy staying on the property reading or enjoying a glass of wine on the porch. Our bed was very comfortable and the rain shower was amazing. The owners were extremely knowledgeable about the entire island,...

Wow! What a delightful stay on our honeymoon. We expected a beautiful location, clean rooms, and an enjoyable stay. We got that and much more! Delicious meals, terrific advice on the what to do, and wonderful new friends. Kenny and Kilohana are warm and engaging hosts. We feel like we have a home on the Big Island. A must stay!

We just completed another stay at the wonderful Kalaekilohana on South Point Road, the Big Island of Hawai’i. This slice of paradise hosted by Kenny and Kilohana is tastefully appointed throughout to portray the local flora and fauna and the Hawaiian culture. The floral arrangements, by Kilohana, of local protea are throughout the entire Inn to enjoy. The food preparation...

Beautiful place with so many great qualities! It is a one in a million type of B&B which borders on a small hotel. This is a house that was built with light, space and sound in mind.

Staying 3 nights with our 3 children (aged 10-13) we were looking for family-friendly hosts and we truly found them in Kenny and Kilohana! Kalaekilohana is an amazing venue, individual and sublime.
