Keauhou Mauka is generally considered the area between Holualoa and Honalo along Mamalahoa Highway, and also sometimes along Kuakini Highway starting at Kamehameha III Road and running to Honalo. When people say "Keauhou," however, they are generally speaking about the makai area around Keauhou Bay and Keauhou Shopping Center. Keauhou Mauka is mostly residential homes and coffee farms though there are a couple of nurseries, general stores, and farms open to the public.

This structure dating from 1919 has been a general store in continuous use for most of its existence. Recently, the store was passed on to new owners who have renovated the store with a mind to preserving its history. While there are 21st century items for sale, they also maintain a part of the store with memorabilia and items from the 20th century.
There is a Junction with Highway 11 (Belt Road) a couple miles before Mamalahoa joins up again with the Highway at Honalo Junction. The two roads run parallel, but Mamalahoa is mostly local traffic through the "Coffee Towns" from Holualoa to Honalo.
