Enjoy the colorful birds and crazy antics of our dogs, ducks, and chickens. Our dog & cat roam around outdoor areas and sometimes come into main house. But they do not go into Bunhouse.

There are plenty of local within a few minutes of the farm. Please checkout our guidebook for recommendations. Grab some takeout and take to Honaunau national park picnic area for picture postcard photo ops while watching the sunset (watch for the green flash) they are real and have been seen once myself.

Our Coffee Farm features nearly 100 year old Kona Arabica trees producing some of the finest kona coffee which is powerful, smooth and delicious. We sell to local cafe's that proudly serve our award winning coffee.

Trails through farm/property and communal garden and seating area. Feel free to walk the farm and enjoy the sunsets under the mango tree. There are plenty of papaya, avocado, mango, pineapple, mountain-apple, tahitian lime, guava, citrus, several varieties of bannanas and even a few tomato trees.

Interaction with Guests

Mornings at breakfast are best times to talk story with hosts, farm workers and other guests.

The Neighborhood

We are right off the highway in Captain Cook in the Kona Coffee Belt with nearby eateries and grocery store. We have beautiful views of the coastline and sunset from the farm. The famed City of Refuge/Honaunau National Park and Two Step (famous snorkeling spot) are just 10 minute drive.

Getting around

There is a public bus, but only runs near the farm in the morning. Buses run periodically throughout the day from bus stop across from Manago Hotel which is 2 miles away. We recommend a rental car when staying at our farm.

Other Things to Note

This is a working farm first. so lights out and quiet time from 10:00 pm - 6:00 am. Our workers sometimes get started at 7am with a fair amount of noise. And during harvest season, several pickers congregate as early as 7am. So, our place is more suited to early risers, which is our typical guest. If you are a late sleeper and disturbed by early morning noise, this may not be the best place for you. Guests are welcome to come and go as they please. We just ask everyone to be respectful of others on the farm during quiet time.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Than you Bebo and Karen we loved our stay with you Thank you so much for your warm hospitality. It was very interesting to learn a bit about your farm. Being able to use your snorkelling gear. We thought the snorkelling was amazing.

  • Bebo's is great! What a nice couple, very friendly and thoughtful. The farm is amazing; we had a great time walking around and looking at their coffee, fruit trees and various animals underfoot. We based everything we did in the Kona area on Bebo's recommendations, and only wished we had more time to stay! The room itself is clean and private, and we did not cook in the kitchen, but it was a good place to store some of the snacks we brought. Hopefully, we will come again!

  • Staying at Bebo's Bunkhouse was a great experience! Bebo and Karen were very welcoming and made us feel like we were at home with family. The room and amenities were simple and clean. The fruit and coffee were amazing.
    Bebo and Karen gave us great suggestions as to where to go, and what to do. They suggested that we go snorkeling at two-step, which is less than 10 min from their place. We were so happy we did! The water was very clear and you could see coral and tons of fish.
    On the last day, we walked around their farm, which was beautiful and large! We were in a rush to get to the airport, so we couldn't walk around the entire farm. Definitely put aside some time to explore the farm and everything it offers. (We would recommend putting on bug spray before going out there.)
    All in all, we had a great time and would highly recommend staying here! Thank you so much Bebo and Karen! We'll be back soon, hopefully!

  • Ich war drei Nächte auf der Farm. Das Leben dort geht früh los und der meeting-point ist die offene "Küche" direkt vor dem Zimmer. Das weckte mich jeden morgen. Die Menschen auf der Farm waren sehr nett. Mein Zimmer war einfach und sehr sauber.
    In der offenen Küche mochte ich hingegen nichts kochen. Ich empfand es als unsauber. Wenn ich eine Tasse oder ein Messer aus dem verrosteten Schubladenschrank nahm, musste ich sie/es erst nochmals abwaschen. Der Kühlschrank war vollkommen vereist und dreckig.
    Es gibt kein Badezimmer! Es gibt ein einfaches Klo und ein Waschbecken in einer Ecke. Beides wird sauber gehalten.
    Die Dusche hingegen, im Nachbarverschlag, ist eine hohe Stahlwanne, dort kommt ein Duschschlauch mit warmen Wasser aus der Wand. Wir würden dazu Stalldusche sagen. Ich empfand es schrecklich gammelig und dreckig, eine Zumutung.
    Die Lage ist gut, ebenso der morgendliche Kaffee, der schon gekocht bereitstand.

    Response from Bebo:

    We have a working coffee farm and as explained in our listing, which offers our guests a chance to experience coffee farm living. This includes getting started at 7am as described in our listing. Our outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower and bathroom is quite rustic as described, but quite common in Hawaii farms. But we do keep it clean. The tub in the outdoor shower is an old traditional Japanese soaking tub and it is quite small. Most people don't use it, but are quite amused by it. But it is the perfect shower after the beach and washing off all the sand. The accommodations are as described in our listing. We've had close to 200 reviews (all positive) with the same facilities, we have never had such critical complaints. Yes, it is bare bones and no frills but for most it is just fine. Its a perfect base camp for the adventuresome traveler.

  • We had a lovely stay at Bebo's farm and bunkhouse. The room was clean, we greatly enjoyed meeting Bebo, Karen and their WWOOF'ers working on site, not to mention delightful dogs to accompany us on walks. I loved exploring the farm in the morning, and the sunset views are amazing. Having snorkel gear available was fantastic, along with great advice on the places to go-and so close to amazing beaches. We spent our entire last day at Ho'okena and it was the best day ever, we spend many days there next time.

  • Bebo was not on the island while we were here but his wife Karen was a very friendly host who made us feel welcome.

  • My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Bebo's Bunkhouse. Karen and Bebo made it a point to visit with us and answer all our questions about this beautiful island. They served us coffee and homemade banana bread every morning as well as shared their fresh fruit. My wife loves coffee and Bebo's is the best she found on the island. There was a community table, sink, and refrigerator under the carport where we could visit with other guests and farm workers when we wanted to. The toilet and shower were easy to access. Bebo and Karen had snorkel gear for us to use and the best choral reef 15 minutes away. We would definately stay here again if we ever have the opportunity to come back. My only regret is I didn't catch a fish to share with these wonderful people.

    March 2014
  • We really enjoyed our stay with Bebo and Karen... it was exactly as described and they were very accommodating and helpful. We felt like part of the family - and their coffee is excellent!

    March 2014
  • Bebo is a genuine hard working guy who loves to share his life stories and family. I was accepted with open heart. Bebo helped me to find all the places I wanted to go while sharing hot spots to find local Hawaiian food. Staying at Bebo's gave me the true Hawaiian experience that usually can only be found if moving to the Island. Thank you Bebo and Karen for making my stay a truly fulfilling and fun experience.

  • Bebo's coffee farm offers a convenient room for a stay on the west side of Big Island. It is a great get away to explorer the coast!
    The coffee and pumpkin bread for breakfast were delicious. Bebo was very helpful with information about restaurants and things to do!
