Two-house deluxe complex with 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms situated on a 3 acre botanical garden with over 30 different types of exotic fruit trees and several hundred botanicals including many rare palms and other species—all labeled with their botanical names.
Situated in historic Waipio Valley, this unique property is known as “the place of first light” ka’o and provides unparalleled access to “The Valley of the Kings”. The breathtaking landscape of the lush valley walls, traditional taro patches, palm and fruit trees, exotic fragrant flowers, and giant monkey pod trees transports you into another world. Walk two minutes to a sacred waterfall and bathe in it’s pure waters or stroll down an enchanting jungle canopy path to a secluded black sand beach. Or explore our dense botanical garden filled with unusual and exotic species and learn while having fun— our plant labels and descriptions will help you identify local and international botanicals. It’s all here for you and much more!
Enjoy all the comforts of home while surrounded by paradise in over 5000 sq. ft. of custom living space—with bamboo hardwood and natural slate floors, travertine bathrooms, granite counters, teak furniture, and our exotic lava-rock bath house—fully off-grid and fed by a waterfall. The two houses are connected by a breezeway that provides unusual privacy between the master suite in the lower house and the 6 bedrooms in the upper house making it ideal for two separate families vacationing together, or just great separation for members of the group.
Screened lanais and decks allow gentle Pacific breezes to pass through the houses while enjoying incredible views from the expansive bay windows and numerous skylights. Fabulous for star-gazing and bird watching, numerous streams and rivers run through the valley and create an unparalleled tropical adventure!

What a pleasant experience. Celebrating engagements, birthdays, friendship, and love to oneness. This garden is a special place in each of our hearts. Give thanks, do good, practice yoga self love and compassion. Mahalo for the beautiful time & stories. Lots of tasty foods were made i that kitchen.
The area is so special and the history fascinating, but the facilities and the overall feel we got from the property was that we we're truly staying in the valley of the king. The staff were attentive to our every need and were extremely friendly and helpful. The grounds on the property are very well maintained and the species markers on the exotic fruit trees and other tropical plants were very informative. We all felt so welcome here and everyone in our group intends to visit Hawaii again and we all feel we just have to stay here again! Thank you so much (Mahalo)
I never thought we would be able to stay in the Valley and it was a great treat. John gave us constant care and tours of waterfalls and fruits. Edible fruits. We all. Loved it.
As mentioned, my family and I stayed at this house for our vacation in December and all of us were taken aback by the serenity this place housed. Most importantly, the owner was very hospitable with all our queries and concerns. We will definitely come back and this time, we won't plan for anything else but to stay in the Valley. It's simply splendid (minus the mosquitoes...but just bring repellant). Lots of hiking, swimming at the beach, eating fruits, and my favorite- just enjoying the majesty of the Valley.
I visited the property while I was on the island because I booked it for my family for our winter vacation this year and wanted to see it before everyone arrived. I thought the pictures on this site would be exaggerated so since I was already on the island for other purposes, I decided to drop by. Well, lo and behold, the pictures are precise! In fact, I think the pictures don't do justice to the property as a whole because the botanical garden also includes a lily pond and many beautiful tropical flowers. The backyard is a true organic orchard...talk about a slice of paradise. No word of lie, there were jackfruits, avocados, mangoes, papayas, and oranges, to name a few. The waterfalls are a few steps away. The property is a trek to get to but with a 4x4 and daylight, you should be fine. It takes about 20 minutes to get there from the Lookout. We are all very excited to enjoy our holidays there soon.
Enjoy a wide variety of exotic fruits and flowers on property. 20 min. walk to the beach through lush rainforest. 5 minute walk to waterfalls and pools for swimming. Stunning cliff faces, crystal clear rivers, running wild horses - the real Hawaii experience
