    Additional Location Information
    Pu’uhonua House is located approximately 25 minutes south of Kona airport and approximately 90 minutes north of Volcano National Park in the town of CaptainCook. Our home sits above beautiful Kealakekua Bay ( location of the famous Captain Cook monument ) and City of Refuge state park. It is approximately a 10 minute drive to either of these locations from the house. We also have several local beaches a short drive from the house as well ( Mannini, Keei, Hookena and
    Two Step ). We are fortunate to have some great restaurants, a local grocery store ( with a large organic selection ) and many local shops and galleries within minutes from the house.
    On a peaceful, private one acre lot at about 1400 ft. in elevation ( perfect climate - not too hot ), close to town and a great place for day trips to some of Hawaii’s many treasures, Pu’uhonua House is a perfect location for your vacation get away.

After announcing our return to the big island for the third time our extended families decided to join us and we decided to branch out from our normal and searched the web to find the Pu'uhonua House.
