As you’ve surely seen in the news today Mauna Loa erupted at 11:30 p.m. last night and there is lava flowing.

We are monitoring the situation but the eruption is on an unpopulated area of the island in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park and no as of now the Kona area is unaffected. Although officials in the area of the volcano are warning residents to be prepared and everyone should stay vigilant and monitor the situation.

Otherwise operations in the Kona area have been running smoothly all day.

We will keep you updated if there are any changes and if you are a current guest we will send text messages.

travel to Hawaii

As of November 15 the Big Island has been open and welcoming travelers back for a month! With a months hindsight we want to answer some questions about what traveling to Hawaii is like in the time of COVID.


So far we haven’t had any issues with our travelers not having their tests on time or being accepted. (Knock on wood!) Gauging how long it takes at the airport, of course, depends on crowds so it’s impossible to say for sure. But taking into account not only time for the test but also the usual baggage claim, car rental, etc its estimated at 2 hours at most. But like we said it’s dependent on days, times and crowds!

It’s a huge help to have all required travel forms completed prior to your arrival! All the forms and relevant information can be found at Safe Travels Hawaii.



We are required to notify each complex of arrivals and departures so ask that you keep us informed of your flight info prior to arrival. If you are looking for further information on the complexes, resorts or local business we can answer any questions or put you in touch with the right people.

Also we have noted some airlines are cancelling flights. We can be flexible with your dates and if you need to subtract or add days to make the flight work out we can work with you, just make sure you keep in touch so we can accommodate your changes as best we can.



Traveling to Hawaii in the time of COVID does mean following all the local travel regulations. While the islands are open this is definitely an important part of allowing tourism to continue and keeping everyone healthy and safe. We ask that you socially distance while out and about and follow the local mask mandates and any business rules they ask you to adhere to.



As we know very well things remain up in the air and ever changing we remain flexible on cancellation policies as well as reservation deposits, credits and date changes.


Please call or email for more information or if you have any further questions about travel to Kona.
