Horizon Guest House is an elegant, exclusive resort situated on over 40 acres of sloping pasture lands (1,100 ft. elevation) on the side of Mauna Loa. We are on the Kona Coast, surrounded by McCandless Ranch, (15,000 acres) ensuring the most in privacy and tranquility.
Come and experience the warm ocean breezes during the day and the cool breezes off the slopes of Mauna Loa during the night (yes, it switches direction twice each day). Enjoy the magnificent panoramic view from every part of the resort, including the custom designed "Infinity Edge" swimming pool and built in Jacuzzi Hot Tub.
Enjoy our generous buffet breakfast in the dining room, main lanai, pool-side, or even on your private lanai. Wherever you chose, all have magnificent Kona coastline views.
Picnic coolers and ice are provided for you to take on your adventures around the island. Enjoy the local restaurants or use the outdoor gas barbecue grill to prepare your own dining adventure.
About our Suites
We have four suites to choose from. Each of the suites has its own bathroom and lanai (Hawaiian for patio). They are arranged in a staggered wing, ending in a guest utility-laundry room at the end. All suites have their own private entry and private lanais with sweeping coastline views looking west, a sunset opportunity! One suite (the honeymoon suite) has a queen bed, the other three have king beds. We've provided a refrigerator for the late night snack, or to store those island produce treasures you discover on your driving adventures; a coffee press and electric kettle for early morning "private" coffee or tea; and a ceiling fan, although there is usually a cool, gentle, evening breeze coming down the mountain from the upper slopes of Mauna Loa.

We are in Honaunau, on the Big Island of Hawaii in the same general area as Kealakekua Bay (Captain Cook's monument) and Pu`uhonua O'Honaunau, also known as 'Place of Refuge'. Both bays are now Federal Marine Preserves and protected from fishing of any kind.
Today people come here, all year around, and from around the world to snorkel, and dive because of the fabulous beauty of the coral and wide variety of tropical fish.
At Pu`uhonua O'Honaunau you'll find a favorite entry point into the water known locally as "Two Steps" that allows even the novice diver or snorkeler to enjoy the undersea beauty by literally "stepping" into the ocean.
