Huggoʻs and Hawaiʻi Life!

Hawaii Life at Huggos

When HGTVʻs Hawaii Life producers knocked on the door asking if Huggo’s would consider hosting potential Kona home-buyers while they discuss which home to purchase, the answer was, of course, e komo mai (welcome, come belong)!

April shooting in the restaurant was an exciting time. The homebuyers and agent used the beautiful backdrop of Huggo’s looking out towards Kailua Bay. After a fun day of shooting, the cast and crew enjoyed lunch at On the Rocks, located right next door in the heart of Kailua-Kona!

HGTV’s Hawaii Life half-hour real estate series is a fan favorite. Be sure to tune in October 19 for the episode featuring Huggo’s! Check local listings for times. As of now, the show is supposed to air at 2:30 PM and again at 9:30 PM (HST)!
