Travel to from Meeting Site

This is about a ten-minute drive from nearly anywhere in Kona, including any of the downtown or Kona Coast hotels. Note that the street address doesn't show up properly on Google Maps, for two reasons - we're on an essentially unnamed street that is a spur off of Mamalahoa Highway, and our house is "C1", not "C" (long story - but basically, it shares a land lot with the house across the street). The second link above tells you how to find the house.

There is some, but not a TON of parking; I can't have more than two cars parked there overnight. It would be best if we could carpool from hotels; I can also pick people up if necessary.


The airport you should be flying in to (pretty sure I said this before, but anyway) is the Kailua-Kona International Airport, code "KOA". It's a 25-minute drive from downtown, or the house.

Transport to from Airport



Hotels can be found at https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#safe=off&q=hotels+in+kona&rflfq=1&tbm=lcl&hotel_dates=2016-12-11,2016-12-14&hotel_ds=1&qop=0&rlfi=hd:2016-12-11%2C2016-12-14;si.

I don't have any personal experience with any of the hotels there; I've stayed at a variety of condos on the island, and the only hotel I stayed at was over a decade ago, and has changed hands at least once since then.
