Our cozy guest ‘Ohana’ is located in a separate building from the main house on an organic 16 acre property rich with tropical landscapes, exotic edibles and forest reserves. This 440 square foot private guest residence offers 1 bedroom, 1 bath, fully appointed kitchen (with stove, oven & microwave), main room and outside garden lanai. We utilize natural resources (solar energy and rainwater) to support a self-sustaining lifestyle. WiFi access.
A well stocked bookcase provides guidebooks, illustrated maps, specialty books on birds, trees, flowers, fish & more…plus Hawaiiana reading material and legends.
Eco-friendly tours are available to guests upon request. Exotic and tropical fruit is seasonally available for sampling and harvest throughout the private estate. When ‘in-season’… learn to pollinate vanilla orchids, harvest cacao pods and pick exotic tropical fruit like lychee, dragonfruit, loquat, papaya, figs, poha berry and white pineapple. Fresh herbs are available from the gardens for food preparation.
At our 1535 ft elevation, morning weather is typically sunny with comfortable temps in the mid 70’s to low 80’s: Rain (seasonal) mid - late afternoons and / or early evenings. Great sleeping year-round.
Nearby swimming / diving / snorkeling can be enjoyed adjacent to City of Refuge at “2 Step”, Pebble Beach or Ho’okenna Beach (which has kayak rentals & a concession stand). We offer beach chairs, towels, mats, cooler, and boogie boards for guest use. Enjoy Humpback Whale sightings (in winter) and Spinner Dolphin antics while relaxing on Big Island sandy beaches.
Note: A locked gate at the main highway restricts access to the property. Key required. Ohana guests must have a vehicle with 4 wheel drive (4WD) or all-wheel drive. We are 'off-road' approx ½ mile from the highway (‘Mauka’ side). The unpaved grassy inclines are too steep for 2WD rental vehicles with ‘street’ tires.
Local Farmers Market at Keauhou on Saturdays and Captain Cook on Sundays.

Our first visit to the Big Island was in 1997 when we joined friends for a one week ‘retreat’ at a vacation rental in Kealakekua Bay where we enjoyed the Island, the Bay and the lifestyle soooo much that within 3 months we relocated from California to Hawaii. Initially we bought a home within the Kailua-Kona township, but knew in our hearts that we wanted to be further south where we could have green-houses, plant orchards, enjoy gardens and learn to live a more eco-friendly life-style. In 2003 we began to realize our dream when we bought 16 acres of undeveloped land in the Kaohe area. By the Fall of 2005 we had a road, 2 producing green-houses, an almost livable home and the joy of knowing we were creating our idea of paradise and a healthier life-style. Now, several years of work later, our home and the Ohana are very comfortable, orchard trees are growing, and the gardens are looking tropical. We enjoy sharing our love for the Island and the land with friends, family and guest visitors.
We love the beautiful, nourishing land, coastline views and sunsets in South Kona. Our location has rich soil for farming and growing ornamental plants; the climate is ideal for living comfortably year round; and we have wonderful neighbors who share a similar passion for the land and living a healthy lifestyle.
We offer a secluded and tranquil guest accommodation in our ‘Ohana’ away from busy nearby towns, yet conveniently accessible to locally available activities. The Ohana (apartment) is located in a separate building from the main house … on an organic 16 acre property that is very eco-friendly. Exotic and tropical fruit is available for viewing and enjoying throughout the farm. Upon request and when ‘in-season’… learn to pollinate vanilla orchids, harvest cacao pods and pick exotic tropical fruit like lychee, dragonfruit, loquat, papaya, figs and white pineapple. Fresh herbs are available from the gardens for food preparation.
