Aloha and welcome to Horizon Guest House

Luxury B&B accommodation on the Big Island of Hawaii

Horizon Guest House is an elegant, luxury bed and breakfast set amongst 40 acres of sloping pasture lands on the side of Mauna Loa. Located on the magnificent Kona Coast, our B&B is less than an hour’s drive south of the Kailua-Kona airport (KOA). We are surrounded by the historic McCandless Ranch, ensuring your stay is enjoyed in privacy and tranquility.

Experience the Kona Coast

Escape the bustle of Kailua-Kona and enjoy the quiet, natural beauty of the coast. Situated at an 1,100 ft. elevation, our BnB offers uninterrupted panoramic views from all four suites. Relax beside our custom designed infinity swimming pool with built in Jacuzzi hot tub. Unwind and relax with our buffet breakfast, enjoy easy access to local restaurants, or even make use of our outdoor barbecue facilities and grill out under the stars.

Location

The Kona Coast

Horizon Guest House is located close to Kealakekua Bay, where you’ll find Captain Cook’s monument, and also Pu`uhonua O’Honaunau, also known as ‘Place of Refuge’. Both of these locations attract people from all over the world to dive and snorkel due to the amazing variety of tropical fish, and the outstanding array of coral. Enjoy these activities with a chartered tour, or dive in yourself.

Big Island attractions

At Pu`uhonua O’Honaunau you’ll find an entry point into the water known locally as ‘Two Steps’. This is the perfect place for the novice diver, or snorkeler, to experience the undersea beauty in a safe, easily accessible location.  Situated only minutes from our resort, you’ll be swimming with schools of yellow tangs in no time. Our bed and breakfast is the perfect place to base yourself while exploring the Big Island’s attractions. Whether it’s snorkeling or diving, taking a trip to the volcano or to Mauna Kea, make Horizon Guest House the jumping off point for your Big Island adventure.

Our suites

Private luxury suites

We offer much more than the average hotel or vacation rental. There are four private luxury suites to choose from. Each has its own bathroom and lanai (Hawaiian for patio). The suites are arranged in a staggered wing, and all have their own private entry and private lanai. All suites have stunning coastline views to the west, perfect for gazing on the sublime Big Island sunsets. Three suites have king beds and the fourth, the honeymoon suite, has a queen bed.

In-room facilities

Each suite has a refrigerator to store those late night snacks and keep chilled any items you find on your Big Island travels; a coffee press and electric kettle for tea and coffee; and a ceiling fan – although there is usually a cool, evening breeze that comes down off the mountain from the upper slopes of Mauna Loa.

About our breakfast

Buffet breakfast

Enjoy our generous buffet-style breakfast in the dining room, main lanai, pool-side, or even on your own private lanai. Our breakfasts change daily and always include fresh fruit grown here on the property. Choose from mangoes, oranges, papaya, dragon fruit, pineapple and more! Wherever you chose to have breakfast, all have magnificent Kona coastline views.

More than breakfast

Help yourself to picnic coolers and ice to take with you on your adventures around the island. Enjoy the local restaurants, or use the outdoor gas barbecue grill to prepare your own dining adventure.

"We really enjoyed having breakfast on the patio with such unparalleled views and sharing stories with other guests. Location-wise, Big Island is indeed big and we appreciated being away from the hub-bub and enjoyed the proximity to the hike down to the water at Capt Cook, to Two-Step, and the Place of Refuge. We left restored."

“My husband and I have stayed at the Horizon Guest House 5 or 6 times. The property is lovely, with spectacular views, the breakfasts are always amazing and Clem is the consummate host. We have come by ourselves and with family and there has never been anything we needed that he hadn’t considered in advance. Always a pleasure!"

“My wife and I have stayed at Clem's guesthouse, 30 miles south of Kona airport, on four separate occasions and at different times of the year over several years. Horizon house is well above the heat, noise and bugs and you can see forever. Breakfasts are major events. Varied menus prepared with care by an accomplished chef (Clem) using fresh ingredients and provide a chance to meet other guests. The views are spectacular.”
