About Richard Liebmann

Dr. Richard Liebmann, ND began his journey to health and wellness in his early 20’s living in Israel. He returned to the United States to attend the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Richard graduated with high honors in 1977 and for the next two years worked at the college teaching and in the administration. In 1979 Richard moved to the big island of Hawaii and opened the Hawaii Family Health Clinic. After his work in the clinic Richard began integrating his experience practicing Naturopathic Medicine into expanded arenas. For over 25 years Richard and his wife Natalie have been leading groups in health and adventure based experiences in Hawaii, Italy and Patagonia. In 1996 Richard became the first executive director of United Plant Savers, a non profit organization dedicated to medicinal plant conservation.

For the past 10 years Richard has been focused on creating Lokahi Garden Sanctuary. With the help of his two children he built the sanctuary center, designed the gardens and landscaped 10 acres with over 250 different species of plants and trees.

For Richard, Lokahi Garden Sanctuary is the culmination of over 35 years experience in guiding people on their journey to health and wellness. Dr. Liebmann honors this process and recognizes that each person’s journey is unique. He is grateful for the opportunity to share on a deep level with others.

Richard Liebmann purchased this cottage in 2004

A mixed experience

  • 3 of 5
We had a great time in Hawi and were definitely like to return. I cant say that we would return to this studio however. On the up side it is extremely well located, we could walk into town which was excellent. The kitchen was really well set up so I prepared several meals. The farm is lush and beautiful. If you choose to book here you need to understand that this is a working farm. There are several farm dogs who roam freely (one of whom is prone to barking ALOT), there is a mob of chickens in their house about 10m from the lanai who make alot of noise for most of the day (until they are freed) and come up on the lanai very happily. The back of the cottage is the farm workshop so power tools are used there. Automatic watering systems come on and flap in the trees right nearby. In our visit, the owners were overseas (which we were not told of beforehand) so we were left in the care of the farm staff. This wouldnt necessarily be a problem but there were issues (persistently barking dog and extremely hard second bed) that had to be sorted. Luckily the young woman looking after us had excellent skills and was able to be resourceful. In the owners favour, our first night was refunded due to the unsatisfactory situations. I am mainly posting this because the other reviews have not explained the whole story here. I would not describe this place as tranquil with all the farm activity going on (plus the amazing barking from every neighbourhood dog each night). Inspite of our difficulties the owner dealt very niecly with each issue once it was brought up. A more proactive approach would have avoided each of these problems but in the end we loved Hawi and appreciated that difficulties were solved.

Owner's Response: We appreciate when guests post reviews. It assists us in continuing to make the vacation experience on our farm as wonderful as possible. We do state clearly that our property is an organic farm. For most of our guests this is a positive factor when deciding to stay. We do have chickens, hens only but no roosters, specifically to insure a quiet and restful sleep for our guests. This is the first time a guest has commented on noise from the hens. Hens do make clucking sounds, but usually softly. We have 2 farm dogs on the property who are usually well behaved and enjoyed by our guests. Our elderly dog may have been missing us and barking while we were gone. We will make arrangements to assure that the dog does not disturb our guests. We make every effort to keep farm related noise to a minimum, typically waiting until our guests are off site before operating any noisy equipment. The power tools are stored in the barn but are not used there while guests are present in the studio. Regarding the sprinkler noise, we have an automatic sprinkler system that comes on when conditions are dry. The irrigation circuit near the cottage comes on for 30 minutes every other day. The guest mentions being dissatisfied by the second bed. We clearly informed this guest that the second bed needed for a third guest was a futon bed. Again this is the first time we have received feedback about this second bed. Due to this complaint, we have purchased a new second bed. We refunded this guest their first nights rental fee. They thanked us, and said in was unexpected. We hope this response to the above review brings more clarity to our potential guests.

Great escape . . . the perfect place to come home to.

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at this cozy cottage near Hawi. This is our third trip to the Big Island and staying at Lokahi Garden Sanctuary was the perfect spot for us. The cottage is surrounded by incredible gardens and trees. We woke up to the sounds of birds and wind in the trees. There are chickens, sheep and sweetheart farm dogs to make us feel at home.
The cottage is a quick walk to Hawi. The sushi spot in Hawi (strawberry salad!!!) is wonderful as is the adjoining restaurant and the nearby coffee shop.
The cottage was cozy . . . we had everything we needed close at hand. Great beds, kitchen, lanai, laundry and wonderful shower. The hosts were wonderful with many helpful suggestions as to secluded beaches and nearby adventures.

cozy cottage on a farm

  • 5 of 5
Our family really enjoyed staying at the cottage. Our kids enjoyed being able to play on the lawn, pick and eat fresh fruit on the farm, play fetch with the very friendly farm dog Kahu, and also see the chickens and sheep. It is an easy walk to the town of Hawi, which has a great coffee shop with sandwiches. The accommodations were perfect for us- they were clean, had a small kitchen, and a bathroom with laundry facilities. Wifi was available. The owner gave us great suggestions on local activities such as hiking and beaches.

a peaceful and relaxing visit

  • 5 of 5
we chose this relatively isolated property in beautiful hawi in as our base for exploring north kohala and were very pleased. the variety of trees that richard has planted is astounding and make for such a wonderful immersion into a lush tropical sanctuary that was very rejuvenating for us. our 5 year old daughter will never forget the time she spent there running through the trees exploring and feeding a little lamb milk every morning and evening. our hosts were very pleasant and made us feel at home and the studio was comfortable and perfect for us. it was only 5 minutes to charming downtown hawi and 30 mins to our favorite beach. we were glad to be away from the hustle and bustle of the resort areas.

A Wonderful Retreat in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a magical 12 days staying at the Lokahi Studio. It is a wonderful spot amid a gorgeous 10 acre permaculture garden, full of exotic plants and trees. The hosts, Richard and Natalie, could not have been more welcoming. They made us feel like friends immediately, and shared a wealth of experience and knowledge with us to guarantee an excellent stay.
The cottage itself is extremely comfortable (great bed!), and had everything we needed to be comfortable, cook at home with the delicious eggs and greens from the gardens on the property, and enjoy our stay on the island.
Hawi is a wonderful taste of old Hawaii, full of old plantations, orchards and wild lush tropical valleys. It is off the beaten path for most tourists to the Big Island, and I recommend it to anyone not into the big tourist resort experience who is looking for a more low key and less commercial way to explore and enjoy Hawaii.
