Beautiful, quiet getaway. It was a perfect place to start the day with a cup of delicious coffee from the farm and relax on the patio and a equally perfect place to come home to after a long adventurous day and throw something on the bbq, start a fire and star gaze! The cat, Pong was so friendly and cute too which is always a bonus. Kelly was super easy to get in contact with. A super friendly host and we hope to visit the farm when we come back to Hawaii!

I know that everyone else has just raved about this magical place - we add to all that! The Shack was just adorable, private, cozy and comfortable to the max - everything had been thought of! Great convenient location and abundant macadamia nuts, papayas, avocados, frogs, birds. Kelly was super easy to reach and very helpful. We even got to meet Kim and what great conversations we had with him - both so very charming and kind. Highly highly recommend!

My husband and I are in our mid-50's. We grow our own label 100% Kona coffee August-Jan. We've been building soil over time, and apply the good stuff to our farmland. There is a small wood shop where we use hardwoods and craft custom wood flooring. On occasion, you will see us in the garden when not attending our children and farm animals. Husband+Wife of 28+yrs, parents of 3 children. We share our love of communication and hospitality, and welcome world travelers. This is the 'Land of Tropical Waters, Plentiful Fruits, Fragrant Flowers, and Funny Animals.' Come and join us!
