What a great place! Patrick and Kristy definitely took care of us. It was a lovely stay.
Patrick and Kirsty greeted us on arrival and gave us a detailed tour of the accommodation. They kindly picked veggies out of the garden for our first dinner, loaned us a coffee grinder and vise for cracking fresh macadamia nuts (delicious!). They were available by text whenever needed, but otherwise left us to enjoy the sights and sounds of the farm when we weren't exploring the southwest side of the island. We appreciated several details, like the complimentary farm-fresh fruit (especially the strawberry and lemon guavas!), fresh eggs for purchase each morning, and sharp kitchen knives for preparing meals. Remember to bring warm layers in the winter months--it's cool at this elevation, but easy enough to remedy. Thank you for sharing your home!
Patrick, Kirsty and Manono are amazing hosts. Thanks again for opening the doors of your fantastic place.
Picking fresh goyavas in the morning is a real treat. We loved having breakfast outside in the garden, the views are unforgettable. We really recommend doing the 1-hour tour of the farm, you will learn so much!
We have already started to recommend this amazing place to our friends. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Big Island!
Patrick and Kristy are wonderful hosts! The farm is idyllic - we picked fresh tropical fruit, visited the entertaining ducks, geese and chickens. Patrick took us on a walking tour of the farm that was really thoughtful and interesting. The outdoor shower room is fabulous.
We were sorry to leave.
Our hosts greated us at the gate at the set time. They were considerate and helpful. They helped us carry in our bags and a bowl of fruit and small jar of honey were waiting on our table.
The apartment was a lovely, quiet refuge that we needed. Well equipt kitchenette, clean, and comfortable. We so enjoyed walking around the little farmstead , looking at the plants, fruit trees, bees, and poultry. Another favorite pastime was sitting on the screened front porch having coffee, or sharing a meal. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Patrick's farm is unlike any experience you will ever have. Everything was impeccable.
First of all, Patrick is an amazing host, who kindly waited for us to arrive, welcomed us with handmade lais and had a plate of fruit cut up and ready to eat with a jar of the most DELICIOUS honey from the property that I have ever eaten in my life. Patrick also sent me an e-mail prior to our arrival with exact directions on how to get there.
The animals on the property are all kind and adorable, and excited to see new faces. I truly miss them.
The place itself is spacious, has a fully stocked kitchen with great appliances in which to fix a meal. This was amazing considering there are no restaurants close by. For breakfast in the morning, there is a coffee machine, farm fresh eggs, and all the fruit your heart desires straight from the bountiful trees. Mornings were a true delight.
There is a huge private lanai (balcony), screened in to keep the bugs out and a great place to eat breakfast in the morning or relax at night.
After breakfast I walked the labyrinth for relaxation, meditation, and thought. This personal touch was beautiful.
The entire place is spotless, there were linens and towels fresh and clean and decorated from the heart.
There was also a fire pit and barbecue and an outdoor shower and bathroom we did bot get the chance to use...oh well, I guess we'll have to come back! ;)
We loved our stay and would highly recommend anyone staying here!
This was the second AirBnB place we stayed at during our trip and the far better of the two. The location, ambiance and environment completely revitalized our trip and provided a perfect hub for the latter half of our Big Island vacation. Patrick was more than pleasant and helpful and the grounds are such a refreshing departure from the tourist-laden areas father north.
Our only complaint is that we did not book this listing for our entire trip!
