Horizon Guest House
Seclusion is the main attraction at this Big Island upcountry inn.
This secluded, smoke-free bed-and-breakfast is set on 40 acres of upcountry pastureland above the Pacific Ocean, just past Kealakekua on the Big Island. It offers a distinctly Hawaiian atmosphere with plenty of aloha thrown in for good measure. From the property's 1,100-foot elevation you can see miles of rolling ranchlands without a single artificial structure to mar the view. Panoramic ocean and sunset views abound. Guest rooms are designed with private entrances for minimal interaction with other guests, further expanding the inn's goal of providing isolation and tranquility. Each room features Koa furnishings, coffee makers, mini-refrigerators and handmade traditional Hawaiian quilts for warmth during the chilly nights. A popular sunset activity is cooking and socializing on the ocean view barbecue deck. Quiet nights can be spent watching films or reading books from the library. Complimentary breakfast is served daily.
