Built in 1838 by Governor John Adams Kuakini (cousin of King Kamehameha), Hulihe'e Palace remained until 1916 a vacation spa for Hawaiian royalty. The historic two-story structure, now a museum, displays a collection of former Hawaiian royalty furniture and effects, as well as ancient artifacts owned and maintained by the Daughters of Hawai'i. This Palace was recently restored to the Kalakaua period and features ancient Hawaiian artifacts and treasured heirlooms.

Majestically surrounded by an expanse of lawn and trees, Hulihe'e Palace stands on the shores of Kailua-Kona on the Big Island across from Mokuaikaua Church, a handsome coral and lava structure arduously built by the island's first Christians.
