Natalie and Richard live on the big island for over 35 years. We enjoy sharing the beauty and mystery of the island with our guests.
Richard Liebmann purchased this house in 2000
Our home is located in North Kohala, birthplace of King Kamehameha. The Aloha spirit is alive and thriving here. Our 10 acres is very peaceful and private. Our past guests remark on the incredible beauty and peacefulness they experience while staying here at Lokahi Garden Sanctuary. We have created a garden sanctuary where the plants and trees thrive.
The views of the ocean, and Maui, are breathtaking!!
You can experience magical sunsets every night while relaxing on the lanai, in the hammock, or the large garden.
Enjoy your meals alfresco any time of the day.
The home is perfect for a romantic getaway, for a special occasion, and gatherings of family and friends.
We stayed four nights at the Lokahi Garden Sanctuary. A beautiful location on a working farm, this was a great launching off point to explore Hawi and the north side of the Big Island. While not walkable to the ocean, the views of the Pacific are fantastic, and you can see across to Maui on a clear day. The house is clean and well-appointed, with everything we could have needed. Our hosts were the right amount of welcoming (bringing us fruit from the farm) but otherwise hands off. Note that as a working farm, there a number of farmhands and others around during the day, but we found them unobtrusive and didn't even notice after a day or two.
Highly recommend this spot to others, and would stay here again should we return to the Big Island.
This beautiful, peaceful property was the perfect place for my family of four over the New Year's holiday. We rented the entire home for 4 days and found it to be even better than the listing description. Immaculate and lovingly cared for, this is indeed a sanctuary. The reservation process was straightforward and Dr. Liebmann and his wife Natalie made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We especially enjoyed touring their 7 acre organic farm with him and learning about the healing plants they grew and their delicious organic produce. The bedrooms and living area were spacious and the kitchen was exceptionally well-equipped.
Perched on the tip of the north Kohala coast, this property had spectacular views of Maui's Haleakala volcano wreathed in clouds rising out of the ocean. Since this was the first visit to North Kohala for 3 of us, we drove to beaches and resorts along the Kawaihae coast all the way to Kona one day, visited Waimea another day and explored charming Hawi on the third day. We planned an evening departure on our last day and drove south of Hilo to visit Madame Pele in her home at Halemaumau Crater before flying back to Honolulu. The Jagger Museum is a must-see for anyone interested in volcanoes.
We arrived and departed from Hilo rather than Kona. Hawi is almost equidistant from the two airports and I found rental cars to be much less expensive in Hilo. The driving distances can be long because of the massive size of Hawaii Island but the scenery that unfolds is unlike anywhere in Hawaii, especially on the drive from Waimea to Hawi. The lush green rolling pastures of the Parker Ranch and the peaks of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa were mesmerizing. No photograph could capture the vastness of the beauty, but we tried!
Our family looks forward to our next visit to Lokahi Garden Sanctuary and we all recommend it highly.
This place is truly a sanctuary. It is gorgeous, with windows across the entire wall overlooking the gardens and ocean. Beautiful accommodations for our family reunion. We enjoyed the large, nicely furnished great room, kitchen/dining room and the wonderful lanai for enjoying the outdoor living space. with table and outdoor furniture for eating and relaxing. We actually spent one day being at the house as it was a vacation all in itself! We were taken care of very well with fresh eggs and vegetables right from their organic gardens. Will be back to this garden sanctuary!!
Very clean modern home with fantastic view north to Maui in a country setting. Is a working 10 acre organic farm but NO roosters! Comfy living room, full kitchen, huge gas grill, and a big lanai.
Farm workers are a bit close for comfort. Master bedroom shower outside and no master bedroom closet, so it loses a 1/2 star.
Will return in a heartbeat.
My two adult children, their spouses, and our 21/2 year old just spent a week at Richard and Natalie's lovely serene home. It was perfect for us. The master bedroom is at one end of the house so we put the family with the baby there. They had their own bathroom and privacy.
The house itself was way beyond my expectations. It was also well equipped for what we wanted to do which was relax, cook, explore, surf and beach. The hammock stretched between two lanai poles overlooking the organic farm and beautiful Pacific became the focal point for afternoon story time and early sunset watching.
The house has no TV which suited us just fine, but excellent internet for those who needed to retreat for a bit of work or who may have wanted to watch late night movies in their rooms.The only reason I did not check the "good for romantic retreat button" was because it IS a working farm and there are folks around. But we thoroughly enjoyed talking to Richard and Co.
You will need a car to surf or beach, but there are endless lovely spots to be discovered. As mentioned by others, Hawi is a darling town with several really good places to eat and friendly folks. BUT IS NOT LIKE MANY "touristy" towns on other islands, at least it was not in early November.
THe short 20+ minute drive to Waimia, is breathtaking as was almost every place we visited. There's a great kid park there for little kids, and Merrimans is a great place for farm/table food. If you get tired of the country ( which we didn't) there are lovely resort hotels just a short drive away. We found fresh fish markets, vegetable and fruit stands, and the kona airport is a dream compared to LaX. Also many local beaches in coves for little kids with small waves and surf beaches for big kids with big waves.
In short I can't say enough. Mahalo Richard and Natalie. We would definitely return.
Lokahi Garden Sanctuary Lodge is located in the delightful small town of Hawi on the north coast of Hawaii. The house, with three bedrooms, two baths, a lovely open kitchen-dining area and living room was perfect for our ladies get-a-way in March 2013. It was comfortable and contributed to our spending quality time together while visiting, fixing meals and enjoying the warm, lush environment.
The Lani, running the length of the house, was a pleasant place for meals and relaxing, with a view of pastures and the ocean. In the mornings, song birds announced the day. The gardens surrounding the house are interesting and scented the air with herbal fragrances.
A short walk into Hawi found us at the local coffee shop, a fun gathering spot for friendly locals and visitors. Good restaurants with live music at night, interesting galleries, and small boutiques make visiting the area fun.
Richard and Natalie are great hosts. The fresh vegetables and eggs add to the charm. Natalie also does great massages.
We enjoyed our time here and found the location ideal for our gathering of friends.
Your hosts can guide you on adventures on the ocean such as kayaking, surfing, and snorkeling as well as on the hiking to waterfalls and sacred sites and mountain biking. Additionally private classes in Pilates and massage therapy are available.
