Our Guest House provides a soothing and healing atmosphere where you can tailor your Hawaiian experience to exceed your expectations. We have a beautiful 7 acre organic/sustainable farm that offers a full spectrum of opportunities. You can choose to stay here and enjoy our space as a launching point for your Hawaiian vacation or choose from a variety of products and packages that we offer here on the farm for a more specific experience. Our farm is an ideal environment for singles, couples and families who want to meet others interested in community and conscious living and taking advantage of some of our educational and therapeutic offerings. Our space is also great for hosting intimate retreats or those who just want a private spacious retreat to themselves.
The Guest House has 3 Bdrms, 1 King, 1 Queen, 1 Double and a sleeper sofa with a Queen mattress in the living room. There is a yoga/meditation/bunkhouse just behind the house that can be added to your rental for an additional $50/night. The space can have 2 twins, 1 king or just be open space as desired. There are yoga mats and meditation cushions available. (see photos) We also have 2 trifold pads for kids if needed.
In addition to all the farm offers, we are about 10 minutes from the ocean with great swimming, snorkeling and many other activities. We are located about 25 minutes south of Kailua Kona which has plentiful land and ocean based activities.

This was a great place to stay. Spacious, everything you would expect in a modern home. Amenities like outdoor shower and fresh produce a nice bonus. Location great as a staging area for almost any activity on the island while having many great activities nearby.
Wow, this place was so serene. Steve and Melinda were thoughtful and accommodating hosts, they truly love their retreat and it is represented in the energy that is felt in the home. The wrap around balcony had stunning views of the ocean, the meditation room was a perfect space for a spiritual experience. We had the entire home and the space was luxurious. We were able to sample the macadamia nuts, drank some goat and sheeps milk, soooooo delicious.
Steve and the Team were very responsive hosts and passionately shared about the mission and vision of their lovely eco farm on The Big Island. Expect your stay to be full of adventure at this unique getaway.
We had a great time at the Honaunau EcoRetreat Farm. The hosts made us feel welcome. The place was clean and comfortable. My kids enjoyed playing with the cats. At night the frogs sing!
This is a great location for exploring South Kona area -- it is near "Two Step" some of the best snorkeling on the Island that you don't need a boat. The hosts recommended great near by coffee shops, bakeries, and restaurants.
The view of the house is awesome! You can both see the ocean and the forest. And there are all kinds of lovely animals around,such as cats, dogs, ducks.
Three bedrooms. The biggest one has king size soft bed. The rest have one full size bed each. And the wifi is fast.
But there is no supply of shampoo and body washer. You have to buy by yourself.
The kitchen is so- so. No microwave. But if you are not so into cooking, it has the basic equipment and two ovens.
The owner is very friendly.
Our experience was awesome! It's better in person then the pictures, the balcony/deck area has an amazing ocean view. Our favorite part was the 2 cats that live on the property, one is super friendly and would come visit with us anytime we were out on the deck. We had a snorkeling tour but the company cancelled it, so Steve and Melinda let us use the snorkel equipment at the house and we went down to an area nearby - "two step beach" and did some awesome snorkeling on our own. We also saw a big sea turtle. Our only regret was that we didn't make time to bathe in the outdoor shower.
My cell phone's internet wouldn't work on the way there so I couldn't read the directions on the website, but (website hidden) maps worked well to get us there.
Enjoyed our stay. Steve and Melinda were in Bali but Dustin, Reagan, Maria and Lou were terrific. Enjoyed the animals and the view and the hospitality.

Our holistic farm and retreat is a place where we can engage with people and share in the abundance of a co-creative conscious lifestyle. We love meeting people from all over the world right here in our home. We enjoy engaging conversation about travel, spirituality, holistic living, healthy food and current affairs. We find people who use airbnb to be great guests and it is a pleasure to be a host in Hawaii because we have the opportunity to extend the magic and beauty of the island to all of them in unique ways. We love our life and we love to share it.
