We had a great stay at the farm! The property is really cool and right away it feels like you can wander around (which we later read was indeed encouraged). We were met by chickens on the driveway, geckos all over the place and two cats patrolling the yard.
The local town, Kilauea is great, be SURE to go to the bakery and get a pizza one night. They also have excellent espresso.
Anyway, Debbie is very nice and set the place up well for us. The outdoor shower is a must and feels very private, so... Have fun. While you're at the shower look in the pots to find the big toads sleeping the day away, later at night you'll find them on the lawn cruising around.
OK, so that's all good so far, one warning: the room gets HOT when the sun is up. There are lots of windows that open, but still there can be a bit of a greenhouse effect. Just be prepared for it and it's fine.
Thanks Debbie, we had fun and it was a pleasure talking with you about bees, GMO, farming, etc.
Awesome little space! We enjoyed staying in this beautiful and relaxed location. Bring your earplugs if you plan to get up after dawn - the roosters are active and loud!
Deborah's place was awesome. I recommend anyone to stay here. The place is perfect for a couple and it's in a very cozy little place on kauai. Deborah was flexible and the apartment had a very islandish feel to it. The farm was awesome too, tropical fruits growing all around!
This place is paradise! We spent an amazing time in Debbie's place, a beautiful and convenient apartment in the middle of an organic farm. We felt at home and in the meantime it was exotic. It is very romantic and the view over the farm is magic. Debbie is a very nice host. We highly recommend the place and would like to come back soon!
We traveled to Kauai from Maui for an overnight work trip and we had a wonderful stay, even though it was short. Very cozy and charming. Fell asleep to the sound of the pounding surf, crickets and the occasional mooing cow.
This place was amazing. If you are a plant lover this is the place to stay. Debbie is so sweet and knowledgeable and will gladly show you around. The studio has beautiful views of her land and the ocean and I loved how the whole inside of the place smelled of sweet cedar. The kitchen was fully stocked the bed was comfortable and the outdoor shower was a treat.
This place is absolutely fantastic! Deborah is so kind and the farm and apartment are just adorable. We loved hearing the rain on the roof and eating breakfast at the cute little table. I would definitely stay here again. Only downside is that the bathroom isn't really a separate room from the main area.
Wow. This place was so amazing. Visiting Kauai was beautiful, but being able to come back to this homebase every night was my favorite thing. The people that live here are very welcoming, kind, and thoughtful. The kitchen and living space is full of little details that help you settle in - sunscreen, aloe vera, various kitchen utensils, beach towels. The land this apartment is on is also beautiful. It's quiet, peaceful, breezy, easy to see the stars at night. It's away from any chaos, yet a close drive to various places you might like to go. (Espresso, food trucks, yoga, Kilauea town is a 5 minute drive). It couldn't have been any more perfect.
Deborah was very kind and welcoming. Seriously a lovely spot, on a lovely plot of land (make sure you walk down to the bottom of her property in the valley). It's far enough from town to decompress, not so far that it's inconvenient. She was quick to respond to the one issue we had (the shower pipe sprang a small leak) and had it fixed that day.
The apartment was exactly what we were looking for. A real Hawaiian hideaway, not a resort experience. No pool (who needs one when you've got more than 60 beaches to make your way to?), no TV (if you're watching TV in your hotel room, you're doing Hawaii wrong), no AC because who needs one when the trade winds are blowing?
What it does have is space (it feels bigger than it looks in the pictures) and charm (the tile work in the shower is nifty). The kitchen is handy when you've been dining out a little too much, and we bought a cooler to leave as a parting gift, so that future guests (we were her first) won't need to rent one to take to the beach.
She was also generous enough to offer the use of her washing machine, her 2-person kayak for a river expedition, and gave us some fruit from her farm (seriously, the tiny bananas were crazy bananas good). I don't know that she'll make it a habit, but it was appreciated.
Don't be surprised when you open the medicine cabinet in the bathroom and a gecko sprints out. There are a half dozen that live somewhere outside (and occasionally make their way inside) the bathroom and kitchen. One of our favorite evening activities was watching them standing on the outside of the windows, (giving us an underbelly view) as they ate the moths that were attracted to the lights inside. Every night was a moth smorgasbord for geckos, and endless entertainment for us.
Light sleepers will be early risers here (don't worry, the time difference will help you) with an entire menagerie of birds announcing the oncoming dawn, including several of Kauai's famous wild roosters. All the better to get your day started and get you on your way to explore the island. Most things close at 8pm anyway, so early to bed and early to rise is the way to go.
We've been home for four days and want to go back already.
