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. Each suite can only accommodate a maximum of 2 guests. Horizon Guest House is not designed for the safety and enjoyment of children under the age of 14 or for pets.

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.

“Our stay at Horizon Guest House was one of the best parts of our Big Island trip. It’s also super close to Two Step- only a mere 12-13 minute drive! We also love the South Kona community; it’s a welcomed contrast from the tourist-full hubs/resorts. Clem and Angus are fantastic hosts and we absolutely loved the breakfast spread at Horizon- we were so full and that we usually skip lunch. We would definitely be back on our next trip to Big Island!"

“There is not enough room to say how excellent our stay was. Clem and Angus were the epitome of great hosts with their restaurant and activity recommendations, as well as engaging in great conversation. The view and amenities were top notch. If you're traveling to the Big Island this is the place to stay!”

“The view from the property is absolutely stunning...Breakfast was outstanding every morning, with tons of delicious food. Clem and Angus both are the consummate hosts, making sure you are happy and satisfied with every detail of your stay. And the peace, quiet, and privacy simply cannot be beat. We felt like we had our own private slice of paradise, a far cry from the giant, crowded resorts elsewhere on the island.”
