Centrally located near many attractions including Kealakekua Bay/Captain James Cook Monument, National Historical Park Pu'uhonua O Honaunau (Place of Refuge), Two Step, St. Benedict Catholic Church aka "Painted Church", Paleaku Peace Sanctuary/Botanical Gardens, and Ho'okena Beach Park; 1 hour drive to/from Kailua-Kona. There are many bays and beaches in which to swim and snorkel, and get lucky swimming with 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.
We strongly recommend 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.

Aloha kakou (Hello to all):
The owner, Marc, fell in love with the Big Island in 1982 and bought this coffee farm in 2008 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 hula with Halau 'O KeikiAli'i and grows gourds for making Ipu Heke (gourd implements used by hula dancers). He starts most every day with a great swim at one of the many bays in South Kona.
