From Kona Airport:
After leaving the airport, turn right on Highway 19, which will merge into Highway 11 at Palani Road. Continue on about 2 more miles south past the town of Kailua-Kona, and watch for a traffic signal with a left turn lane (Puapuaannui Street) Turn left at that intersection and go up the hill. At the end of the road, turn right onto our street, Hualalai Road. Go 4/10ths of a mile and turn right into our driveway (the inside of a hairpin turn).
There is a lighted lamp post and a sign above the mailbox - Hale Maluhia. go up to the end of the driveway and park in front of the garage door to check-in. Ring the doorbell by the front door if you don't see anybody. We look forward to welcoming you!
After checking in, please drive back to the front of the driveway, past the last building to find a parking place.
Please give us an approximate arrival time if possible, as some of the flights come in late. We wish you pleasant travels and look forward to your visit. Please let us know if you have any questions.
The travel time around the Big Island of Hawaii takes an actual driving time of about 5 hours. Hilo is the wettest city in the U.S. with 120 inches of rain per year and the Volcano area is a tropical rain forest of 200 inches per year. Kona is on the dry/sunny side of the island with 30 inches of rain per year and enjoys the best beaches.
We would be happy to arrange adventure trips including Kayak rentals, snorkeling, fishing, helicopter rides and boat cruises. Please ask us directions to the many natural and cultural sites on the island.
