My wife and I stayed at the Holualoa Inn toward the end of a month long vacation. We'd flown from Australia, where we live, to Honolulu for five nights, California for two weeks and then back to the Big Island. Stepping off the plane in Kona is a bit of a surprise - it felt hot and a little desolate. Little did we know. We collected our car, found the directions to the Inn and started the short drive. You climb quickly and before you know it enter a world that's cool and green. We drove through the village of Holualoa, found the Inn and parked. It was quiet. We took off our shoes, walked in and met Brian, the chef. He gave us a tour and treated us like old friends. It got better from there - the place is a dream, the setting wonderful, and the people as good as they come (Brian, Kat, Chrissy and Noe all took time to make us feel welcome).
Our first full day we drove around the island and everything fell into place: my wife said it was like watching the trailer for an excellent movie. Four days wasn't enough for either the island or the Inn. We'll be back soon.
