We had such a wonderful time staying at the treehouse! A great view, wonderful open-air room, and awesome breakfast prepared by James (including his organic home-grown coffee) every morning. They had a ton of information about the island and gave great recommendations of places to visit, snorkel spots, restaurants, etc. We are looking forward to staying with them again sometime!
We were very happy in James' ohana. He prepares a really large breakfast for his guests and is very helpful in giving tips what to do on the island. The treehouse is spacious, clean, well equiped with snorkeling stuff and for cooking as well. Nothing to complain about.
James and Flora are great hosts. We stayed at the tree house with our three kids. It is a very unique experience with the open screened windows and the sounds of the frogs and birds every night and morning. The kids loved to greet the geckos and cats every morning. James' breakfast is the delicious. His coffee measures up with the best. If we would have stayed at a hotel we would have missed out on having some great conversations and tips from some locals. James and Flora have all kinds of water "toys" - from boogey boards to snorkeling gear. We had a great stay!
James and Flora were fantastic hosts. They consistently went above and beyond their hosting duties: James met us on the driveway to help us park and welcomed us upon our late arrival at night. He made us delicious breakfast every morning and provided a lot of information and stories of the area along with recommendations. They lent us snorkeling and beach gear, and James gave us a tour of his coffee farm along with many gifts from the trees growing there.
The tree house itself was lovely. It was very refreshing and relaxing to be surrounded by trees with huge open windows that let in the sounds of nature. We were basically spoiled: we started out our long Hawaii multi-island trip with a stay at the tree house, and nothing after that came close!
More than hosts, James and Flora quickly became friends. Stay with them, and you'll *understand* why all the other reviews are full of nothing but high praise. More than highly recommended. I wish we stayed much longer than just 2 days!!
We had a fantastic time at James and Flora's Ohana. They are wonderful people, and made us feel completely at home. It was the opposite of a "tourist experience"!. The fresh coffee in the morning, with fresh fruit, or fresh juice, and breakfast, along with excellent conversation was a great way to start the day.
The place was very comfortable, with an ecstatic view out the huge screened windows. The bird song, chicken clucking, cat meowing and (sometimes) pig grunting made you feel like you were in a very different world. James' suggestions for places to visit were great, and very helpful.
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to go off of the beaten tourist path, and we would go back again in a heartbeat.
My husband and I absolutely loved James and Flora's treehouse home! It was exactly as they described. We felt like we were literally staying in a tree in the rain-forest (crazy frog noises and all), but the screens that kept the bugs out and the comfortable accommodations were second to none. The shower is amazing. It is an experience we will never forget!
James was full of recommendations for fun stuff to do on the island. We followed his advice and hiked to the Green Sand Beach (amazing!) and swam around the Iron Man area downtown. The treehouse provides beach towels, snorkel gear, coolers, etc- it was perfect. The fresh coffee and breakfast he served every morning started our day off great!
I've already sent multiple friends and family this air bnb listing and suggested they all make plans to stay here the next time they visit Hawaii. My husband and I can't wait to come back. Aloha!
The Treehouse Ohana feels like you're staying in a suite. Very nice. Great shower and bathroom. Large, open living room with a stunning view! Hosts James and Flora were great! Felt like close friends instantly. James' breakfasts with his own James Bean coffee were wonderful and delicious! Overall, very enjoyable experience
We feel so lucky to have had the chance to stay in James and Flora's magical tree house. Such an amazing spot! James and Flora were such wonderful hosts.
Staying with James & Flora was the best decision we could have made. The place itself is very unique with a cabin-in-the-woods/farmhouse feel to it and the giant tree is very much a part of it. James and Flora themselves are really what make this place a gem though. James made us breakfast each day (in addition to his own coffee, try it!), going over our plans with us, joking around, and adding great suggestions. All that definitely made us look forward to each morning. They had beach and snorkel gear that they were more than happy to let us borrow in addition to maps and books about the area.
If having a thin barrier between yourself and nature is very difficult for you, this may not be your kind of place. It's very open air with screening to keep out the mosquitos (which we had no problems with the entire time) and you can hear the sounds of nature very clearly. To us that added to the great experience, but may not be for everyone.
I cannot emphasize enough how kind James & Flora are. You would be hard pressed to find kinder people to stay with. They treat you like great friends right upon meeting them and have invaluable information about the island.
Overall it would be very difficult to find a more unique experience with nicer hosts.
My family and I had a terrific time staying in James' treehouse. It was definitely a one of a kind experience with the open air concept and all. James made great breakfasts every day, and even accommodated my vegan diet. He would also go over our plans for the day, making suggestions for activities that only a local could make. It made our trip so much better. Thanks James!
