GREAT RATES, only $500/night for group of 10! We are offering an exotic abode located on an organic farm, created specially for groups of individuals who wish to come together for a common mission.
This is a great refuge for meditation and exploration, the spiritual minded, good food and herb lovers, yogis, artists, teachers, farmers, bikers, family reunions, weddings or just a good place to relax and get away from it all!
It's your prerogative, we'll leave you alone or smother you with a funky blend of Southern hospitality and aloha. Your hosts and neighbors are the good folks at Puna Organics including the lovely Elvira and her husband, the world-infamous certified organic yellow ginger farmer Biker Dude!
A portion of the retreat consists of five hand-crafted island huts, constructed and dismantled in Bali, then shipped to our farm on the big island of Hawaii and painstakingly reconstructed. The Bali huts are fabricated with exotic hardwoods and cedar.
Ironwood shakes that form their roofs seem effortlessly suspended in a vented double-tiered architectural wonder that is as beautiful as it is practical. Each hut has its own redwood deck that faces the ocean and the sunrise.
Covered walkways connect your hut to an open beamed main house with 16-foot ceilings and polished pacific island hardwood floors. A beautiful kitchen, daybeds, lofts and eclectic furnishings create a cozy aura in the main house.
River rocks and cedar adorn double headed rainwater showers in the master baths. Connected to the main house is a large meeting room (perfect for seminars and group study, aerobics, yoga or a bunch of kids in sleeping bags) with lots of windows and polished marbau (hard dark wood) floors. The entire structure has over 3000 square feet including the four baths. We also have recently added an outdoor grilling hut for some cooking fun!
This is sustainable farm life on a single lane paved road in a remote location. A state of the art solar system provides abundant power and a 25,000-gallon rainwater catchment provides your fresh water.
Your retreat rests in a manicured fruit orchard and is surrounded by delectable flower and vegetable gardens. Surprisingly we do have telephone service.
Your retreat is located 25 miles south of historic Hilo. Quaint Pahoa Town, just six miles away, presents a varied assortment of excellent eateries, a farmers market, a natural foods store, an internet cafe and several small town churches.
The ocean you see from your hut is a mere three miles away, with snorkeling, swimming, surf spots, hot ponds and lava flows in close proximity. A must see is the Volcano National Park just 40 minutes away.
Your retreat rests on the slopes of the volcano, the edge of the rainforest and well off the beaten path of your average tourist!
Friends, this is a work in progress, we are evolving ... this is our field of dreams and it is very near complete, so ya'll come! We have yet to find a suitable name ... so for the moment we are simply ......... Your Hawaiian Retreat.
