A private room located in a beautiful country setting on a 10 acre coffee farm. You have access to the shared bathroom, kitchen, lanai and laundry area. A wonderful place to relax, explore from, and enjoy the real Hawai'i!
Watch the wildlife and enjoy the beautiful ocean view of the famous Kealakekua Bay all the way to Honaunau (Place of Refuge) from many areas on this farm. Centrally located near many attractions including Painted Church, botanical gardens, and many great snorkeling bays; yet only 30 minutes from Kailua-Kona.
Enjoy fresh fruit samples (in season) from our many fruit trees including mango, banana, lilikoi, papaya and more. WI-FI is included as well as shared laundry facilities.
The managers are located on site and will be happy to help out with any directions or ideas on local attractions. If you prefer a quiet, uninterrupted stay, they will give you your space to enjoy your vacation.
We are close to some of the most beautiful coastline in Hawai'i. There are many bays and beaches in which to snorkel/dive and you may get lucky enough to swim with the dolphins and turtles! During whale season you can enjoy watching their behavior from many of the close local areas. Don't forget a trip to the volcano and other places of interest here on Hawai'i. You can fill your days with many wonderful sites or spend it relaxing here on our little piece of paradise.
Parking is free on the property, however we strongly encourage a car rental as most attractions are not within comfortable walking distance. We do have a car rental available as well as airport pickup; please inquire if interested.
Because we are located in a tropical climate we encourage you to bring some mosquito repellent for your comfort. Also, the Hawaiian sun can be intense, so bring your favorite sun block to avoid a sunburn.

Our stay was short but pleasant. We loved the singing of the frogs and the peaceful night we spent here. The host was very friendly and gave us directions to some local spots we wouldn't want to miss. We would stay here again.
We had a wonderful time staying at beautiful Paliuli Farm and really enjoyed chatting with Coralie and Chris. They were very welcoming and provided us with delicious fruit (we're still dreaming of their mangoes) and lots of great tips what to do. Thanks to them we got to swim and snorkel with dolphins - a fantastic experience! The room was pretty, allowing a gorgeous view into the green rainforest. So does the shared bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped and contains everything you need for cooking. Plus, the view from the lanai is just a dream come true. We can definitely recommend staying with Coralie and Chris. Thanks a lot! We would like to come back one day.
The farm is located around 20 mins south of Kona. It is fairly large and there are many trees, which means you get to eat some of the local fruits. We loved the morning papayas, bananas and passion fruits (lilikois)!
The hosts rent a couple of bungalow-style rooms on the farm. The bathroom is separate from the rooms - you have to walk a few steps outside to reach it from your room. The room was large and clean. You have to get used to living "in" the nature: you take your showers with the geckos; also the local frogs (coqui), which are widespread over the whole island, can be quite loud during the night. (they are noisier at other locations on the island). Nevertheless the bathroom was neat and clean. We also appreciated the washing machine that is available for guests to use. There is also snorkeling equipment that guests can borrow.
A kitchen is available and shared (with fridge space) and you can eat on the outside patio "lanai" with a view on the ocean. A beach where you can swim with dolphins is only 15 mins away (by car, which you will need) and the volcano park is around 1h45 away.
The owners were very kind and helpful. They told us where to find the beaches with dolphins and turtles and we really enjoyed that.
Overall we had a quiet, relaxing stay in some sort of Eden garden! We would definitely go there again.
We had an amazing time and are already talking about when we can return. The room was comfortable and was as listed, we were not looking for a resort room we wanted to live the island life and that is what we got. We enjoyed the outdoor feel of the shower and bathroom, while still being able to have the luxury of hot fresh water. I loved the little geckos and lizards that where waiting for me every morning when I brushed by teeth.
There was a great small market a couple of miles away and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. If you don't want to cook one night you can't go wrong with Jake's Big Island BBQ just up the road, the brisket is the best we have ever had and we try BBQ everywhere we travel.
It was also nice to have coolers and snorkel gear available to use when we needed it. The location can't be beat with two great beaches within a couple of miles from home. The painted church is a nice short 1/4 mile walk and worth the time to see.
Coralee and Kris are great hosts, offering us directions and ideas of activities. We stayed here for our anniversary and Coralee even greeted us that morning with a thoughtful card wishing us well. We are planning to stay in touch which them so that if they choose to move on to other areas of the world we can come stay with them there too!
Thank you for a great stay, we hope to see you again soon.
Mahalo Michelle! We loved having you and Jeff come to stay with us. We are so happy that you enjoyed your time here on the Big Island as well as here on the farm. It is nice to see others enjoy this tropical environment as much as we do! We wish you all the best and hope to see you again someday!!
Kris and Coralie were wonderful hosts and the room we rented from them was clean and comfortable. They were full of useful information about things to do in the local area! I would recommend the Paliuli farm to anyone in need of accomodation on the Kona side of the Big Island.
Paliuli Farm is a magical place to stay on The Big Island. Coralie and Chris are amazing hosts - they were there to show us around when we arrived, and even before we arrived, gave us advice on sites and travel distances (we had an early morning scuba dive reservation back up in Kailua-Kona).
The room is adorable and amazing - I loved how the big screen window overlooks the forest. The bathroom and kitchen are - this sounds odd - so much fun! I've never had big screens for windows in my bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen overlooking such a beautiful, lush environment.
We had some decent rainstorms while we were there that were above and beyond a tropical a rain. This led to a bit of a humid chill in the air, so if you're the type to get chilled easily, I would bring a comfortable long sleeve shirt for the evenings.
The lanai was such a peaceful place to have our breakfast and dinner. I kept looking in one direction - the trees on the farm, and then the other direction - the view of the ocean, and never sure which view I wanted to face as I ate. These are the kinds of problems you want, when you're on vacation. :-)
The birds in the morning were ridiculously chatty - I personally loved every minute of it. It was such a peaceful experience waking up to their song. I walked around in the morning capturing 30 second little videos of the view and their songs so I could remember my experience here.
We only had 5 nights on The Big Island, and two of those were with Chris and Coralie. It was not nearly enough. We will definitely be back.
Mahalo, Coralie and Chris!
Aloha Kerry! We are so very happy you enjoyed your stay here. It was so wonderful to watch you appreciate the beauty and nature of our farm and the Big Island. We absolutely enjoyed having you stay here and share our wonderful tropical environment. Mahalo for staying with us and we hope someday to see you again!
Our stay on the Big Island started and ended at the Paliuli Farm: just the way it should be. What a wonderful place. The hosts get to live on this beautiful coffee farm all the time. So great that they could share it with us for a few days. The grounds are a farm loaded with tropical fruit and trees. The day and night sounds of birds and frogs are exotic and soothing at the same time. It sits 1000 feet above the ocean but still close enough to see whale spouts. The cottage was very comfortable. We stayed in both the Jacaranda and the Plumeria rooms and found them both very comfortable. There is a nice shared bathroom and the shared kitchen is very well equipped. There is a large ocean view lanai next to the kitchen. We enjoyed our many conversations with our wonderful hosts very much. They both went out of their way to make our stay comfortable.
Fantastic stay on a working farm! Coralie and Chris are very lovely and accommodating hosts. They made such helpful suggestions, such as for us to go to a nearby "locals" beach that was simply fantastic. The fresh produce that was offered to us was much appreciated and delicious. The rooms was quiet and well appointed. I can't say enough wonderful things about this property and the proprietors.
Coralie and Kris were absolutely wonderful hosts. They were extremely tidy and respectful; also so patient and always already for help us in everything we needed. The pair of them make for interesting conversations,about travels and life's styles...and their farm is really a beautiful place to stay, close to many attractions in Kona side of the Big Island. We'll miss our dinner in the amazing terrace with ocean view... and we'll also miss their sweet dog, Nonie! Thanks so much, Coralie and Kris, for make our first visit to Hawaii unforgettable!
The kind of glowing recommendation this place deserves would make it so we can never get a room there again. Seriously gorgeous, delicious, magical place.... If you like eating tropical fruit looking out at the ocean horizon and falling asleep to the sweet song of frogs.... This is the place for you. If you'd rather not be a 10 minute drive from amazing snorkeling where dolphins often come to rest, well then more days there for us. Coralie and Chris are lovely hosts and the price couldn't be better. Enjoy!
Aloha Jess and Jennie! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay here. We miss your smiles and contagious cheerfulness. Mahalo for choosing us for your stay while on the Big Island of Hawai'i. We hope you both are doing well back home and would love to have you back for another visit!
