... br> The area is very proud of all they do and have. Even the small medical clinics and churches were represented in the parade.
Now off to find something to eat. I'm famished. Let's see.... Mexican? Fish? Burger? Mud Pie ;--) oh better not. I landed at Kona Inn and found a table outside looking out at the pier. The sunset was gorgeous. I don't get to see too many of them this time of year and was sure bless by this one. I ordered a seafood cob salad and thought it sure would ...

... was time to head to the Sheraton spa, where I had booked a 'Tranquility' package, some time and care for my hands and feet as well as a long massage. The Sheraton is walking distance from my condo and situated right on the shore, which makes for a lovely setting for some pampering. As the massage was finishing up, the sun was setting and a band had started to play in a nearby bar. I however, had one more activity on my agenda before dinner. Slipping on my bathing suit at the spa, ...

... each one. So grateful tonight for eternity He placed in us because we are all waiting to go home.

I was reading Isaiah 43 today, and here is what I thought:
first God reminds us Who He is and then Whose we are

Day 17 - Kailua - Kona

Another very hot day. We had booked a Hawaiian Chocolate Tour a few days ago for today. It was south of us and in a really pretty area. We arrived just before 9 am. Large tour, held by the owner of the place. He and his wife bought it in 1997 and moved from S. Carolina. Brave! Good choice, I think they are doing really well. Interesting tour although at $15 we both think overpriced. Arrived home to stock on cold water and then decided to ...

... out in the convertible toward Kona. Unfortunately the car only made it as far as Hilo. We had to leave it at a garage and take a rental car the rest of the way. The trouble with the car delayed us a bit but it led us to a great lunch at Pineapples in Hilo which came highly recommended by our Hawaiian friend Crandell.

The drive to Kona in the rental car was uneventful except for the striking scenery on the 'Saddle ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hale Hualalai Bed and Breakfast Holualoa

    Best Place on the Big Island

    from

    We spent a week here between Christmas and New Year's and can't say enough good things about the place. It is located above Kailua-Kona just down the road from the artist colony at Holualoa, maybe ten minutes from downtown and high enough to be out of the heat and noise at the beach. It has only two guest rooms, both of which are very private, separated from the main house by a connecting lanai, very spacious, great views, nicely furnished, and the breakfast is world class. The proprietor serves coffee brewed from beans grown on the premises, and the food is incredibly good. There is really no reason to look elsewhere for accomodations on the Big Island unless this place is booked (even then I'd get on a waiting list).

    The place and accommodations were great, the host even better

    from

    My wife and I stayed five days at Hale Hualalai B&B. We lucked into staying here and we'd go back in a minute. The suite is spacious and airy, clean as could be, and it has a spectacular view of the ocean from the living room and terrace. Our host was Lonn Armour, who calls it a coffee plantation. He grows his own Kona coffee beans and was once upon a time a chef. It shows. When Lonn, or Farmer Armour as he calls himself, suggests something for breakfast, take it. There isn't a better breakfast anywhere. The B&B has only two rooms. It's on the side of a mountain about 3500 feet high and about a five mile drive to town. It may not be suitable for little kids because there aren't any activities, but for a quiet place, a great view, good company, and fabulous food, this place is the best.

    Incredible B+B

    from

    We spent three amazing days at Hale Hualalai just above the city of Kona in March. Imagine stepping out on to your own private lanai to overlook a grove of coffee trees in bloom, beyond which lies the incredible view of the ocean. Our hosts, Lonn and Jean, offered us wonderful island style hospitality in their beautiful home.

    Couldn't ask for anything more from a B&B!

    from

    Not only is Lonn, the owner, the best cook ever (I fell in love with papaya and eggs benedict because of him) but he even took my husband and I on an awesome hike. Very nice and luxurious room with a great lanai. We didn't feel like we were staying right with the owner because it's a seperate room - it made the stay much more private feeling.

    We'd done the in town thing in Kona and didn't much care for it. We loved the country feel of Lonn's B&B (he even grows/sells him own Kona coffee!) but it was still close enough to town when we wanted to go into Kona (maybe 9 minutes away?). You MUST stay here - it was a truly delightful experience and will definitely visit again!

    A wonderful place

    from

    We stayed here for 4 nights in February 2004. The B and B sits on the hillside above town, to get there you must have a car. The views are lovely as you sit on your lanai to read.

    Marvelous

    from

    I was there for the Ironman together with my girl friend. It is a perfect guesthouse (There are two guesthouses and the mainhouse) with a magnificant view over Kona and the beaches. The breakfast was even for a hungry triatlete more than enough and more important: delicious!!

    with fresh fruit from his garden and his own coffee!!!

    If you want to go to Hawaii; this is the place to be.

    If you want to I can sent you foto's of the house and the view.

    Unbelievably great service and cooking

    from

    My wife and I stayed at Hale Hualalai for a few days last summer and had a very pleasant stay. The proprietor Lonn, besides being a great guy, is a retired line cook and has worked at some of the finest retaurants in Hawaii. After one of his great breakfasts you will be supercharged for the day's activities. Lonn has a coffee orchard on the property and his special blend ranks with the best of them. Lonn is also a great source of local island information and always ready to make your stay a memorable one. The two rooms are well appointed, quiet and they have a great view of the Kona coast. Give this one a try for a truely memorable stay.

    The Best B&B in Kona

    from

    This is a wonderful hideaway,with a view of the Pacific Ocean that one will never forget.Sunsets here are found nowhere else in the world.Your hosts,Lonn and Jean are ,very friendly and know the Big Island well.The best thing about this B&B is Lonn is one of this islands best chefs.I have stayed at this B&B three times and will again.I would recommend the Hale Hualalai to anyone.

    The Big Island of Hawaii's best kept secret

    from

    Having lived on Oahu Hawaii for the last 30 years and having spent much time visiting all our neighbor islands, either on business, or for holiday, this kamaaina has been pleasantly surprised. If you are looking for a local experience with much exposure to Hawaii's hidden beauty, then a stay at HALE HUALALAI B&B is the way to go. Not only will you get a private suite style room with a lanai that gives an incredable view looking down the slope of Hualalai mountain to the ocean and Kona Town, but you will also get exposed to Hawaii's natural foliage and diverse bird population. If that isn't enough then wait until you try Lonns wonderful breakfasts using ingrediants he grows from vast collection of exotic fruit trees and if you like coffee then you will get your full daily of the 100% Kona coffee grown on the property. His only draw back is that he has only two rooms available, you need to book now.

    Home away from Home

    from

    On my last 10 business trips to Kona, I have stayed at the Hale Hualalai. Up on the hill in the midst of coffee plantations, the Hale Hualalai has a commanding view of the coastline. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the family cat and dog "Knucklehead" and "Lava." This charming B&B has two private master suites with separate balconies, sitting room, refrigerator, wet-bar and bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. The owner, Lonn Amour, a retired chef, cooks breakfast to order. Breakfast is served on a large covered lanai, from where guests can see the cruise ships in the distance pulling into port. Lonn happily provides information about local Island attractions, restaurants, hikes and secluded beaches which most tourists don't hear about.
