Maps of the Local Area, Region and Island
Hale Pōhaku is situated on the Island of Hawaiʻi, the largest of the Hawaiian Islands, which is also known as the Big Island or Orchid Isle. We are on the western side of the island on the beautiful Kona Coast, just south of the town of Kailua Kona (Kailua is called Kailua Kona to distinguish it from Kailua on the Island of Oʻahu).
You will also often see Kailua Kona referred to as Kailua-Kona, but the official Post Office designation is without the hyphen.
The first map shows the area directly around Hale Pōhaku and Kailua. The other maps show the Kona Coast from the Keahole International Airport to Keauhou, as well as the entire island of Hawaiʻi (with Kailua Kona marked in purple).
From the airport, it is about 11 miles south to Hale Pōhaku (about 20 minutes, but times can be 2 to 3 times longer during peak traffic periods). Hale Pōhaku is between Kailua Kona and Keauhou, about 2 miles south of Kailua village.
The Riviera Villa, Kona by the Sea, and Casa De Emdeko condos on Aliʻi Drive are just a bit north of Hale Pōhaku (with a stretch of ocean-front homes in between); while to the south are the Hale Kai OʻKona and Kona Nalu condos. Following those is a church, formerly the
church without a roof, now Living Stones Church.
