Interaction with Guests
The Managers live on the property and will be happy to help with any questions, suggestions, ideas, or directions to local attractions. They will always be considerate of your privacy and space during your stay.
Centrally located near many attractions including Kealakekua Bay/Captain Cook Monument, National Historical Park Pu'uhonua O Honaunau (Place of Refuge), Two Step, St. Benedict's Catholic Church aka "Painted Church", Paleaku Peace Sanctuary/Botanical Gardens, and Ho'okena Beach Park; yet only 30 minutes from Kailua-Kona town. There are many bays and beaches in which to swim/snorkel and get lucky to swim with the dolphins and turtles! During whale season you can enjoy watching their behavior from many of the close local areas as well. You can fill your days with many wonderful sites including Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Mauna Kea Observatory; most all of this island can be reached within a couple of hours from the farm.
Parking is free on the property and we strongly encourage a car rental as most attractions are not within comfortable walking distance. As of May 1, 2015, we do not have a car rental available. We will update this posting should that option change in the future.

We had an amazing 3 nights stay in Paliuli Farm.
It's just the garden of eden there with so much fruits trees... and one of the best part of the stay is that you can test it !
The room is also very fun and beautiful.
The room, shared bathroom and kitchen were very clean.
Janis and Thomas were perfect hosts for us giving a lot of advices and helps.
We had a really great time at this farm. Janis and Thomas are so nice and welcoming. We felt like being at home and it was really relaxing because the place was so quiet. Although it was remotely in a jungle there were neither bugs nor mosquitoes in the room. Janis does everything to keep the place very clean. The best thing was to try all those different Hawaiian fruits we got from Thomas. We would definitely stay there again.
Ellos estuvieron muy atentos a nuestras necesidades, de asistirnos en cualquier manera y nos trataron muy amablemente. La vecindad era simplemente pacífica y rodeada por una naturaleza muy sorprendente. De lo único que no me percate en la descripción era sobre el baño y cocina compartida, pero no fue un problema.
They where very attentive to our needs, looking after us and treated us very kindly. The neighborhood was simply peaceful and surrounded by an astounding nature. The only thing I didn't realize in the description about the bathroom and kitchen being shared, but it was not a problem.
The listing was accurate and Janis, the host was very welcoming and accommodating. It is very peaceful and quiet at this location and off the beaten track. To get there, you have to go a few miles on narrow winding roads.
This is a lovely place. the hosts do not seem happy and were inflexible with regard to the inevitabilities of travel such as late arrivals, lost credit cards and slow transaction processing by air B&B for payment. Their response was to ask me to leave early and even threatened to call the police, for what I do not know since I did nothing illegal
We have had many people stay here and have an outstanding reputation with Airbnb; in fact we have super host status, which is not easy to obtain. We clearly state in our rules that we do not accept late arrivals as we have quiet hours and do not want guests to be disturbed during that time. Unfortunately for the first time we have had someone stay with us that we finally had to ask to leave. Samaya you were not happy from the moment you came here and it was always everyone else's fault for what was going on. We cannot allow someone to stay when they cannot pay and I think most people understand that. We also do not allow people to be rude to us or verbally abuse us while they stay here. We have worked hard to keep a peaceful atmosphere here on our farm and you are definitely not a fit for us. We do wish you well and hope that you can find peace in your next accommodations.
Chris and Coralie were always very upbeat and friendly and ready to help! They went above and beyond my expectations. They have great knowledge of the area and were always gracious and generous in the sharing of information and their time when needed.
The farm is beautiful, the fresh fruit and freshly squeezed juice provided by Chris and Coralie were fabulous. My new favorite fruit is papaya and the avocados were the best I have ever had :)
Noni is a very sweet farm dog and along with Coralie and Chris, made us feel like we lived on the island instead of just visiting it.
We hope to return again and hope that Chris and Coralie will still be there to make for another wonderful experience.
Mahalo Diane! It was very nice to meet you both and are so happy you enjoyed your stay here at Paliuli. Nani loved her walks with you and we both enjoyed the conversations we had with you and getting to know the two of you. We all miss you both and wish you much aloha!

About the Host, Paliuli
Aloha kakou (Hello to all):
The owner, Marc, fell in love with the Big Island in 1982 and bought this coffee farm in 2007 after living in several locations around the island. He spends about 65% of his time here on this island paradise which he considers "home". The farm offers him and his guests, a peaceful, quiet, farm stay on aina (land) that is deeply rooted in the old Hawaiian traditions and ways of Aloha. He danced with hula Halau 'O KeikiAli'i and grows gourds for making Ipu Heke (gourd drum used by hula dancers). He starts most every day with a great swim at one of the many bays in South Kona.
