This historic landmark is located near the seawall on Ali'i Drive in Kona. Hulihe'e Palace, managed by the Daughters of Hawai'i, is one of only three royal homes in the United States. 

Though it unfortunately sustained heavy damage during the October 2006 earthquake, repairs have been made allowing visitation of the palace to continue. Built in 1838 by Governor John Adams Kuakini, King Kamehameha's cousin, Hulihe'e was a vacation spot of Hawaiian Royalty. Its expansive lawn and stately palm trees offered a lovely playground. Before the earthquake both the first and second floors were filled with artifacts from Hawaii's ruling class from ancient tools to royal dress. Upstairs royal bedrooms were preserved.

The palace is open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and $1 for children.
