Mahalo Nikii for your wonderful hospitality. You think of everything!
We had a great stay at Nikki's Eco cottage. It was a convenient home base for exploring the west coast of big island, being right off the highway. Nikki was a good host, approachable and helpful. The lanai was a great space for relaxing outside and staying on a farm makes for an interesting travel experience. Clean and simple accommodations that I would recommend to others.
My wife and I and our two best friends thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay at Nikki's wonderful home. Waking up to the sound of birds, surrounded by her organic garden of tropical plants was a rare treat. We dined every morning and evening on the Lanai and couldn't have been happier with our accommodation, our wonderful hostess and the area. We are recommending this accommodation to all our friends travelling to the Big Island.
This was a wonderful spot on our trip. My mother and I were traveling through and we felt right at home and succluded at the same time. I loved the garden, chickens, and all of the out door amenities. Nikki made sure we were set up and had all you could ever need for cooking in the kitchen.
The house at Nikki's eco-farm was very comfortable and I felt quite at home upon arrival. The house rules are very reasonable, the location is easy to find and it is relatively convenient to the places/activities we hoped to see. Highlights include: the covered deck overlooking the grove of fruit and avocado trees, the outdoor shower and the farm produce that Nikki offers for sale.
Nikki was very accommodating (leaving lights on for us and our late arrival) and welcoming when we met--it was like meeting an old friend. She also offers great advice on local sights to see. My only regret at this point is that we couldn't stay longer and enjoy the space more. Barring that, I look forward to coming back soon.
After spending three nights at this property, I have to say I'm genuinely surprised by the previous reviews. Quite rundown. It was a bit noisy cause it was right by the highway which made it not a peaceful experience.
Papalani farm is a beautiful place to stay! Nikki is an awesome host. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental.
Nikki made me feel welcome before I even made my reservation. She was very friendly and informative with clear communication. The place was beautiful, the produce was amazing and the outdoor living spaces were cozy and fun. We wish we could have stayed longer and tried some of the spa treatments. It was a very memorable part of our vacation experience. If you want to get away from the touristy parts of the big island this is your place!
Perfect stopping place for our bike trip--about half way between Naalehu and Kailua-Kona. Full kitchen, nice bed, hot shower and very secluded. Nikki came by to see how we were doing.
Die Beschreibung der Unterkunft war sehr genau. Das Haus ist schön gelegen, mitten im Grünen. Allerdings sind Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sehr weit weg. Nikki ist eine sehr nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin und wohnt direkt nebenan. Wir (3 Erwachsene + 16 Monate altes Kind) haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Nachts kühlt es, im Vergleich zu direkt am Strand gelegenen Unterkünften, angenehm ab. Zum nächsten Sandstrand sind es ca. 20 Minuten mit dem Auto. Es gibt Papayas und Maracujas direkt aus dem Garten! Die Außendusche ist ein Traum!
Aloha! Come enjoy a beautiful stay on the Big Island of Hawaii!!
I have had the great pleasure of knowing Nikki and being a guest at the farm several times since 2001! Nikki has created a beautiful space both inside the home and outside as well, from the spacious lanai to the grounds with gardens and macadamia tree and avocado tree farm. Nikki pays wonderful attention to detail leaving you to enjoy a clean comfy enjoyable space. Nikki always has her finger on the pulse of new things happening on the island so have a nice chat with her to find out whats happening from outdoor events to meditation and and massage. Nikki has been a wonderful reliable friend these past 13 years and I would highly recommend getting to know her if you've got the time!
The surrounding area provides lots of fun and relaxing beach activities. Enjoy swimming with dolphins and snorkeling in pristine waters. The property is well located for a breezy drive to Kailua-Kona in one direction and Volcano in the other.
Enjoy your stay!!!
