Kamakahonu, the residence of King Kamehameha I, is located at Kailua-Kona on Hawaiʻi. King Kamehameha, who unified the Hawaiian Islands, lived out the last years of his life and instituted some of the most constructive measures of his reign (1810-1819) here. The residential compound includes the personal heiau of the King. It was here, too, within a year of the Kamehameha's death, that the first missionaries to the Hawaiʻi arrived in 1820. His son, Liholiho also lived here.

The property is now part of King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel. Several buildings have been restored and can be viewed, but not entered.
