Directions to the Edge of the World

A Beautiful Edge of the World Bed and Breakfast


Here are the directions for getting here from the north, from the Kona Airport.

 Turn right going south toward and past Kailua-Kona town.  Stay on that road.  After about twenty minutes you'll pass the Manago Hotel (between 110 and 109 mile markers) on your right as you enter the small town of Capt. Cook.  On your left you'll pass the fire
station, post office, and Kealakekua Ranch Center.  Two  streets past the old Kona Theater, (the first street is  Anoi Place) maybe half a mile, you will make a right turn. (This turn is about 200 yeards BEFORE the 109 mile marker.)  At that intersection you will see a one  foot by six foot wooden sign saying "McCoy Plantation."  Turn right there and remain on that road for the next two tenths of a mile  (Don't drive down Coffee Drive.)(Please drive slowly from here to the Edge, as roads are narrow and visability poor.) After two tenths you will see a small  one foot by two foot sign with the number 82-5899, a two foot square sign that says "Hale Mauka" (not us but a good turning landmark),   and a white circle about two feet in diameter painted on the road.  Turn right there (it looks kind of like a driveway) and proceed down a narrow, lush (almost jungle-like, without elephants and tigers) road for two tenths of a mile.  You will pass two houses on your right,  just keep going straight ahead, down a hill, up a hill and out of the lushness with coffee plants on your left and a small pasture on your right.  When the pasture (and a low stone wall) end, you will turn right down the first cement driveway. You'll also see a six foot long white arrow painted in the road, and a small sign that says "Edge". It's a long driveway of about 400 feet,  Don't stop at the  first house on the right, or the second on the left which has a large green roof, just keep going until you come to The Edge of the World, where you'll see a very small sign.  You'll see a modern looking two story structure, upper floor is redwood with blue roof, and the lower level is beige stucco. If you feel confused, just give me a  call (328-7424) and I will be happy to meet you at the Manago Hotel or the  Capt. Cook Post Office, as they are only a five minute drive from our bed  and breakfast, but our guests tell us that the directions above are perfect.  Please note that google maps and GPS will not work in getting you here as well as these written directions.
(Please remember to copy and bring these directions.)

Directions from the South

From the south, you'll be seeing mile markers indicationd the distance from Hilo on the side of the road.  Approximately 100 yards after the 109 mile marker turn left (this is the first left after the 109 mm and also where you will find the McCoy Plantation sign).  The rest is the same as from the north.

If you are unable to stay with us for one reason or another, or if you are looking for other places to stay as well, I suggest you try the following website .  It's the assocation we belong to, fine folks, fine B&B's on the Big Island.
