Location/Directions

Directions from Kona International Airport (KOA))

If you have a smartphone or your car has a GPS, you can enter the address: 68-1122 N. Kaniku Dr., Kamuela, HI 96743.


Directions from KOA airport:

Turn left at stoplight exiting the Kona International Airport onto Highway 19 (Queen Kaahumanu Road) and go 20 miles.  Don't enter 220 Ka Milo into you mapping system because most can't find that address.

The entrance to Mauna Lani Drive is located on the left (ocean side) of the highway, marked by a lighted sign and small coconut grove, which may only be noticeable during the day. 

Turn left onto Mauna Lani Drive and proceed for 1.2 mile to the traffic circle. 

At the traffic circle, take the first right turn, which is North Kaniku Drive. 

Drive 0.75 mi down N. Kaniku Drive until you reach Ka Milo’s entrance on your right.


Directions from Hilo International Airport (ITO)

If you have a smartphone or your car has a GPS, you can enter the address: 68-1122 N. Kaniku Dr., Kamuela, HI 96743.


I recommend the Rt 19 route highlighted on image to left and not the shorter, winding, hilly Saddle Road, especially at night!

From Kekuanaoa Street (Airport Access Road) turn right on to Kanoelehua Street. 

Turn left onto Kamehameha Avenue. Continue as lane merges to the right onto Highway 19.

Direction to Unit 220 in Ka Milo Resort

Many people call me and ask how to find unit 220, once they get to Ka Milo.  At this time, you will not find the correct location in Google Maps or other mapping software.

The map above shows the location accurately as marked by the blue dot.    The map is terribly outdated because there are many home now completed.  

This map also shows the closest beach (Fairmont Orchid Beach) to our home at 220 Ka Milo.  It is approximately 07. miles away.


This map also shows how far our pool and recreation center is away from our townhouse.

Directions to Mauna Lani Resort Owner's Beach

Exit Ka Milo and turn left onto N. Kaniku Drive.  Enter traffic circle and take 2nd right to continue on S. Kaniku Drive.  Drive to end of this road, where you will find a gate at the entrance to MLR Owner's Beach Club. 

Use the gate card in our home to open this gate.  The gate will be open from 5 to 9 pm each evening to allow the public to use the ocean front, open air restaurant (Napau).
