The Kona Islander Inn is a vintage hotel in the style of Old Hawaii. The lobby is located on Kuakini Hwy with an alternate entrance on Ali'i Drive in Kailua Kona, across from the Pacific Ocean. Close to shops and island-style dining, the Islander is a sanctuary of palm trees, red ginger and fragrant plumeria. Torch lit pathways meander throughout the grounds. White sand beaches are within easy walking distance. All are welcome in the spirit of Aloha!

I am a working finish carpenter and sailor. In addition to my lovely wife, Merita, my passion is my 30' traditional wood sailboat. I have been involved in small town politics for 30 years. Please don't hold that against me.
