About Tamara Lupoloff

Tamara Lupoloff built and planted her farm here in Hakalau. Recently retired from 27 years in the travel industry, she knew this little piece of Hawaii was where she wanted to be. Her planning and hard work has allowed her to share her dream with others, and she enjoys welcoming guests from all over the world to experience the serenity and beauty of Hawaii.

Tamara Lupoloff purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Tamara Lupoloff chose Hakalau

Tamara loves the tropical weather and ability to grow a wide variety or fruits year round. The view and the neighborhood, with her close proximity to the ocean, make it home.

What makes this cottage unique

Tamara custom-built the houses and planted all ten acres just the way she had always dreamed. The views are magnificent. Guests have space to stretch out and get away from it all while enjoying the easy, beautiful drive to all that Hilo, and the Big Island, has to offer.

A nice retreat in a beautiful tropical setting

  • 5 of 5
We highly recommend staying at the Family Fruit Farm. This small bungalow style house is very quaint and is located a nice comfortable distance from the town of Hilo and the Hilo Airport. Our stay was unfortunately cut short by the threat of an approaching tropical storm, so we left a day early, but the property grounds, lanai and interior of the property were very well taken care of and had everything we needed to make our own meals and relax. Like most reviews in the Hilo District area, yes there are lots of animal noises at night however we found them to be very soothing and did not bother us when we were sleeping, great background noise... There is a small fan on the bedroom dresser that makes enough soothing noise to drown out the frog croaking but we choose to leave it off and enjoy the sounds of nature. Oh and ditto on the great fruit basket and banana bread upon arrival? We will be back as soon as we can.

Beautiful, peaceful, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was very cute and clean, and well laid out. Coffee, banana bread, and some fruit were supplied for us on arrival. We have two kids who did not want to sleep in the same queen bed, so the hostess supplied an extra fold-out bed. The lanai was very peaceful and surrounded by a variety of young fruit trees, and we loved hanging out there. A local neighborhood market had plenty of local fruit and other treats. The place is about 20 min from Hilo, and very close to Akaki Falls State Park and the Tropical Botanical Garden - both recommended. Tamara was extremely nice and supplied us with information and anything else we needed. We were disappointed to have to leave and head for the Kona side! I highly recommend the farm for families or couples.

Forth of July weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Mahalo iā ʻoe for your wonderful hospitality and use of your cottage!

We loved having a place of refuge to start and end our day with total relaxation and serenity, we could not have picked a better place for our weekend travels.

The lilikoi was truly a gift that took two of us back to our small kid days, good for the taste buds and good for the soul.

The banana bread was awesome, it did not last an hour!

Peaceful, beautiful getaway in a picturesque location

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was the perfect getaway for our family, including our preschooler. The cottage itself is wonderful, with beautiful original art, nice furniture, comfortable beds, and an excellent layout, but our favorite part of our stay was the lanai and lawn. We found ourselves enjoying the majority of our meals on the lanai and spending hours playing, exploring, and relaxing in the yard, which has a perfect balance of fruit trees and open space. The views are phenomenal. The drive into Hilo is a relaxing one, too, and well worth the opportunity to stay in this quieter, uncrowded area.

Tamara is a kind and helpful hostess. She was very welcoming and responsive, answered our questions promptly, and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and activities. We enjoyed the fresh-cut flowers, chocolates, coffee, and fruit she had set out in the kitchen for us upon arrival. She even brought us more flowers halfway through our stay.

We look forward to staying here again!

Pastural Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Idyllic, private cottage with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay in the Hilo area.
Space more than adequate for two couples. Evenings were relaxing, sitting out on the large covered lanai, listening to the coqui frogs serenade you. Tamara was available if needed.
Easy dive into Hilo, pass stunning coastal and interior scenery.
Hope to return .
