The gross income for the Inn for 1999 2000 and up to 9/11 was approximately $200,000. per year. Same for the gross income in 2012. Tourism on Hawaii Island is presently gaining good ground and the Inn should be able to have a much higher gross in 2014 with professional publicity. Personally, I am 81 and not really up to working with the publicity as I use to. The publicity on the Internet is the key to keeping the Inn full. If professionally managed the Inn could gross $250, 000. per year.

After 9/11 the Inn was used as a Christian Retreat Center by Trinity Fellowship International. The Inn complex is well designed as a B&B Inn. But the property could also be well used for a Corporate Retreat or a large family vacation home. The Inn is located at a most ideal 940 foot elevation in the Holualoa Kona Coffee Country and has about the best climate and central location in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. Yet the area still has a gentle touch of old Hawai'i with small ranches and coffee shacks here and there. However, many multi million dollar homes are now being built in the Inn at this time. The Elementary School, just 3 miles from us at Holualoa, is one of the best in Hawaii. Due to Lako Street and Puapuaanui Street the Inn enjoys a very quiet setting..
