The Neighborhood

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had such a great time at Paliuli Farm... wished we could have stayed a lot longer...! Coralie and Chris were both very peaceful, cheerful and helpful hosts, the rooms were very clean with pleasant natural decor and beautiful view of the lush greens... I really liked how purple petals of Jacaranda flowers were falling on the steps outside our room. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful swim in the Honaunau bay, as well as watching sunset from the view terrace and gazing stars sitting on lawn chairs. And the farm-grown organic Kona coffee tastes sooo good -- I am grateful I can continue to enjoy it back home :) Thank you again, Coralie and Chris!

    It was our pleasure to be able to host you and show you our little piece of paradise. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! It was very nice to have you here and we wish you could come back soon to enjoy more of our wonderful island. Aloha!

  • We had a wonderful experience and give our highest recommendation! A great location with perfect hosts and one of the most enjoyable sleeping situations I've ever had. A+!

    Mahalo Sara! We enjoyed having you and Matt stay with us and wish you the very best in your bike trip this summer. Aloha!

  • Paliuli Farm was lovely. For me, a perfect combination of low price (a rare thing in Kona) and comfort. I wish I had been able to spend a few more days there, as I only found it at the end of my trip. With more time I would like to have had a proper explore of the farm and surroundings, and shared some stories with Coralie and Kris! Sadly I was soon on the plane home with a bag of their excellent coffee and the noise of the frogs ringing in my ears.

    Night-time in Hawaii is pitch dark, pleasantly cool and alive with noises and it seems wrong to shut it all away in an air-conditioned room. On the other hand you wouldn't actually want to share your bed with most of the noise-makers. Therefore I appreciate the care that seems to have gone into making the room open and airy whilst preventing the critters from actually coming in.

    Equally while it's great to go off-grid for a while, the realities of trying to co-ordinate with friends half way across the planet mean that I was grateful for both a wall socket and wifi.

    Thanks for a great couple of nights, and hopefully I'll be back for longer at some point in the future.

    Mahalo Sam! We are so happy that you had a great time while you were here and were comfortable with your surroundings. Although you only got to spend a short time here, we enjoyed having you stay and getting the chance to meet you. Aloha and hope you can come back someday to enjoy more of our little slice of nature on this beautiful island.

  • 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.

    Mahalo Melinda and we hope that you and your daughter have a wonderful visit to the Big Island. Aloha!

  • Paliuli Farm is great alternative for those who seek a "non-tourist" environment.
    We were on a budget and didn't care about luxury. It was as if we were staying with friends, off the beaten path. Coralie and Chris were easy-going hosts, thoughtful and super helpful. Walls were thin and sound was an issue. We considered that a reasonable price to pay for all that was gained. Although you can't pick the fruit on the farm - Coralie and Chris shared mangos, avocados and some of the local fruits. They were delicious! They also shared some great places to visit and tips on what places would be good in what weather. This is a great location on the Big Island and a beautiful place to stay. We enjoyed ourselves! Mahalo!

    Response from Paliuli:

    Aloha Dennis and Kimry! We enjoyed our time with you and are happy you enjoyed your stay. We have had to change our policy on fruit picking as there were guests who would strip the trees and then we would not have enough fruit for any future guests that stay. We like to provide a sample to everyone, so that they can taste local fresh fruit. Thank you for understanding about that. We have made the Jacaranda room rates lower because the other room (Plumeria room) does have to pass by to the Bali Bathroom which causes more noise for that room. This is also why we have quiet hours, so that everyone will be conscious of each other and provide a peaceful evening for all. Again we are happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to staying in touch! Mahalo!

  • 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.

    Response from Paliuli:

    Aloha Jens and Katharina, We are so happy you enjoyed your time here and thrilled that the dolphins came to swim with you!! Mahalo for the wonderful review and we would love to see you again and experience your wonderful smiles and contagious laughter.

  • 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.

    Response from Paliuli:

    Aloha and mahalo Yvan! So happy you enjoyed yourself here on the farm and the both of you were comfortable with your stay. It was great to have you here and would love to have you back.

  • 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.

    Mahalo Jeff! It was great to have you here and we are happy you enjoyed your stay. Enjoy your continued adventures....Aloha!

  • 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!

The management team of Kris and Coralie have traveled many beautiful places in the world and have settled down here on the big island of Hawai'i. We enjoy meeting new people and live the aloha spirit. You will often find us playing in the beautiful ocean at one of the many beaches or bays that are located within a few minutes drive of the farm. The owner who fell in love with the big Island in 1982 bought this amazing property in 2009. He spends part of his time on the mainland and the other here on this island of paradise which he considers 'home'.
