About This Listing
Enjoy your own private room on a quiet, peaceful coffee farm. A comfortable room where you can wake up to nature and have an ocean view with your meals on the lanai. Play and explore all day then return to a beautiful sunset for your dinner.
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!
Enjoy fresh fruit samples (in season) from our many fruit trees including mango, banana, star fruit, papaya and more. WI-FI is included as well as shared laundry facilities.
Interaction with Guests
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.
Centrally located near many attractions including Kealakekua Bay, Pu'uhonua O Honaunau (Place of Refuge), Two Step, Painted Church, Paleaku botanical gardens, and Ho'okena Beach Park; yet only 30 minutes from Kailua-Kona. 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 as well. You can fill your days with many wonderful sites including 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, however 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.
Other Things to Note
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.
WE NO LONGER ACCEPT CHECK-INS AFTER 8 PM. We are a non-smoking farm with quiet hours from 9pm to 8am. Our rental is located in a tropical climate so we ask that you do not leave dirty dishes and/or food out as it encourages pests. This is also why we ask that you do not take food into your room. Laundry hours are from 8am to 7pm. You will be asked to sign a rental agreement upon Check-in.
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!
This was a really great place to stay! I'm always on the go and the peacefulness of Paliuli Farm actually got me to slow down because I wanted to enjoy my time there. Very gracious hosts that provide basically everything you need. Farm samples were delicious. Simple but hospitable living.
Lovely, peaceful place with great hosts! The best view from a shower ever:) Truly enjoyed my brief stay and would highly recommend them and their property. A wonderful gem on the Big Island:)
What a cozy and magical place. Coralie and Chris were incredibly kind and gracious hosts, immediately making me feel home among the singing wildlife and natural beauty. The avocados and papayas were the best I've ever tasted. I loved the room with the open screened windows, I could hear everything at night. This place is truly special-thank you both so much.
Aloha Lauren! It is always makes our farm feel extra special when others come to stay and fall in love with our little piece of paradise. It was so wonderful to see you enjoy the fruit and your surroundings and we hope someday you can make it back to soak up more of the natural beauty we have come to call home. Mahalo for choosing to stay with us as we thoroughly enjoyed having you here.
Coralie and Chris (and Mark)were so great and hospitable. They were very friendly, nice and they helped us with everything we needed (and even more!). We got to use their snorkelgear and we had some very amazing talks. Its was the best hosting we could imagine for our last week in Hawaii. The farm itself is very pretty, enough space to relax, (especially the lanai), clean and enough to do around. They gave us some good advice and tips for what to do in the surroundings of captain cook. Thank you so much Chris, Coralie and Mark! We won't forget the amazing stay :)
Mahalo Bregje! We also had a wonderful time with you both and are so happy we have had the chance to meet you. We love to share our little piece of paradise with others and it brings us joy when others love it as much as we do. We miss having you here and much aloha to you both!
Wenn Paradies dann dort, so friedvoll mit diesem Dschungelvogelgrillenkonzert abends, diesen liebevollen Zimmern, diesen Pflanzen und Früchten, die dort auf dem Hof überall wachsen und der so netten Bewirtung und der ruhigen Athmosphäre! Fantastisch! Vielen Dank an Coraly und Chris! Enjoyed it so very very much,thankthankyou!!

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.
