The Space

Are you looking for a more authentic travel experience during your time on the islands? And looking for something more organic and retreat like without paying a small fortune? Then we may have the perfect spot for you. We have a beautiful 7 acre organic/sustainable farm that offers a full spectrum experience from farm activities, fresh organic food, and wellness/spa offerings. We have three lovely guest rooms in our main house, the KING ROOM w/king bed and private bath ($99) and the QUEEN ROOM w/queen bed and shared bath ($79) and the DOUBLE ROOM w/ a double bed, private entrance and shared bath (available only with whole house rental). We have an outdoor shower and infrared sauna area. The main house has a communal kitchen, living and dining room and wrap around lani. We also occasionally offer our private 14x28 COTTAGE ($99) just a short walk down a lovely path next door to the main house with a king size bed, a beautiful private deck w/ a kitchenette and amazing view of the ocean. It shares the use of the outdoor shower/sink and the indoor bathroom with the main house. You can find all rooms on airbnb as well as the cottage and whole house as separate listings.

I am sure you will enjoy our beautiful landscape and panoramic views of Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau City of Refuge and the vast pacific ocean. In addition to all the farm offers, we are about 10 minutes from the ocean with great swimming, snorkeling and other fun water activities...like swimming with the dolphins! We have a double kayak available for rent if interested.

If you enjoy animals you will love hanging out with our milking goats, sheep, ducks, chickens, and rabbits as well as our two loving dogs and kitty's. If you really want a true farm experience you are welcome to come along for morning or evening activities...which could include feeding the animals, milking the goats, making cheese, harvesting fruit, veggies or mac nuts and who knows what else. Please remember this is a working farm so there will be farm noises (e.i. roosters in the morning) and activity around.

We feel our farm is an ideal environment for a single traveler or couples who want to meet others interested in community and conscious living and see what life in paradise is really like aside of the tourist scene. We love meeting new people and hosting good folks.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house and view are even more stunning in person compare to the online photos. The king room bed is big and comfortable. It's very kid friendly. Steve was kind enough to show us how to milk the goat and explain sustainable farming. We will definitely recommend anyone to stay there. But the street is not showing on GPS, make sure to get there before dark on the first day.

  • Nice location, great porch, very relaxed atmosphere.

  • It was a pleasure to stay at Steve and Melinda's. Although I didn't get to meet them I felt right at home. Steve was always available to talk on the phone. The king bed was very comfortable and our room was tidy.
    I wish I had the opportunity to cook because the farmers mrkt was abundant, kitchen -big and seemed all the necessary tools were there to cook up an omelette. But we ended up finding places to eat locally.
    Steve and Melinda's place has a lot of care and wisdom put into it. I felt in my element; having a meditation room and lush garden/ farm available to me. Mahalo, can't wait to return!

    February 2014
  • Steve and Melinda and all the other people on the farm made us totally feel at home for our stay on their fantastic farm. They are wonderful people who gave us very interesting information about the surrounding places.
    The room is large and totally clean and the shared kitchen and living room are well equipped and beautifully arranged.
    We especially loved to relax on the large balcony just like their lovely cats and their dog did (still missing them :-) - enjoying the view of the farm, the ocean and the sunset.
    If you go to Big Island - this is the place to stay. We would really love to come back.

  • An incredible couple of people! We loved staying with Steve and Melinda, the farm was such a fun place to explore: its a real model for permaculture, and the animals are so delightful. The additional services they offer, like massage and fun farm classes, were so worthwhile. They also made coming and going very easy. We felt very comfortable and welcomed, but they were absolutely non-intrusive. The accomadations were Iuxurious and rustic! We plan to stay again when we return to the Kona coast, I highly recommend their farm stay to anyone, whether they usually look for a Hilton or hostel.

  • Such a great stay @ Steve & Melinda's farm & facilities. The moment I drove up, I knew this was going to put me into the spirit of Hawaii within no time at all. Great conversations with them & the people working on their farm - felt like part of their community. Hope to stay again next time I visit.

    September 2012
  • Loved the farm. Loved the view of the sunsets over the ocean. Loved being away from it all, but close enough to beaches, Kona and other attractions.

    August 2012
  • We had a great time on this farm. People and off corse Melinda and Steve were very friendly and helpfull to us. We had some very good conversations. We felt us very well.

    July 2012
  • Everything about our stay here was fantastic. The views from the lanai are breathtaking, the animals are great, Steve and Melinda are warm and welcoming. We spent time in both rooms in the main house and they were incredibly well put together, not to mention comfortable and clean. Don't leave without sampling some of the produce from the farm, drinking fresh goat milk, and treating yourself to a fantastic farm fresh breakfast at least once (thanks Stephen!). We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend a week in Hawaii.

    June 2012
  • Very cool organic farm! The room was really nice, and the views from the balcony stunning. We never got to meet Melinda and Steve, but they were very helpful and even left us a walkie talkie on the counter to reach them if we needed anything. We wish we could have learned more about the farm while we were there, but there is so much to do in the area we didn't get the chance. One thing to note -- the drive to Kona was a bit longer than we expected, but we still recommend 100% -- great place!
