Pu’uhonua House is located approximately 25 minutes south of Kona airport and approximately 90 minutes north of Volcano National Park in the town of CaptainCook.

It is approximately a 10 minute drive to either of these locations from the house. We also have several local beaches a short drive from the house as well ( Mannini, Keei, Hookena and Two Step ).
