Camp Aloha is a five-acre tropical farm. Our home is 600 feet off Painted Church Road up a tarmac (blacktop) driveway through mango, macadamia, avocado, banana, and even bamboo groves to views from the pool and lanai that can make you slow down.
We remodeled the South end of our home. The TV room, bedroom with king bed, bathroom (shower) and adjoining hallway are all private. The lanai and kitchen area are occasional shared as is the rest of the farm. You are welcome to walk the farm and take advantage of the ripe fruits and amenities. We only host one set of visitors at a time.
We are 700 feet off the county road up a paved driveway. Parking is private and included.
Interaction with Guests
We spend some time with visitors and often do a quick farm tour. We rarely have guests when we not planning to be here.
Our neighborhood is very rural with most residences on family farms. There is a National Park and great snorkeling just about two miles away. Sandy beaches are more like five miles away.
There is not convenient public transportation. Most of the big island is really enhanced by a motor vehicle.
Other Things to Note
Camp Aloha dogs, cats, frogs, chickens and even wild pigs on some evenings.
No smoking inside.
Respecting the planet.
Camp Aloha exceeded our expectations! Joan and Casey made us feel very welcome and at home. The open-air lanai kitchen was clean, airy, and a pleasure to work in--never mind the airplane-like view of the ocean below! The dogs and geckos kept us company and we began to feel the lanai was our home away from home. Our hosts gave us more food than we could possibly eat and keep asking us if we needed anything more. The king bed was beyond comfy and we slept like babies. I actually can't say enough about this place--it was a very sweet experience, and I hope to come back some day.
