About Donna Maltz

Aloha, from Donna and Kevin, the Host of Always In Season Farmstead. We have been coming to the island since 1984 and are finally full-time residence in our gorgeous farmstead location.

In the summer months, Kevin runs the Fresh Sourdough Express Bakery & Café in Homer Alaska, a successful natural Bakery & Cafe since 1982. We also run a lovely eco-friendly vacation rental home in Homer AK called A Memorable Experience.

Always In Season Farmstead has enables us to combine our love for food, people, and the planet into one. This is an awesome place to rest, relax, rejuvenate, get married, renew your vows, have a farm to table meal, take a culinary class and have some fun.

I graduate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I have been trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on all my experience and this knowledge, I now enjoy teaching culinary classes, hosting wellness retreats, and coaching entrepreneurs and individuals choosing to make a change. I am also the Author of a book soon to release.

Donna Maltz purchased this cottage in 2011

Paradise ! Donna, the owner, is a delightful & helpful hostess. Gave us delicious fruits from their property & is a wealth of information of area. A safe & quiet place with great view & close to Hawi, an artsy place with a great farmers market. The Hub is a wonderful place to eat & the shops are fun & not far to jump in the ocean

Hawi stay

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay in hawi. Setting was beautiful, Donna was gracious and helpful and we made good use of the kitchen-dinning area set up in the garage. The garage area is more like a covered lanai, we could sit and watch the birds and enjoy a view of the garden while it was raining. We were close to town and I recommend the Bamboo restaurant.

Beautiful, peaceful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful spot from which to explore the north and northwest areas of the island, away from resort-land. Donna was a gracious, easygoing host, quick to offer excellent advice about where to roam and where to eat. She was terrific with our toddler, who now keeps talking about wanting to go to "Donna's house." We had free rein to explore the property, pick fruit, and make our own fresh juice. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, and extraordinarily quiet. The open-air living room/kitchen area were unusual but easy to get used to. And when we discovered we'd made an accident with our booking (short-changing ourselves a night), Donna was completely accommodating and set us up in her additional guest space, which featured an outdoor shower with hot water that we absolutely LOVED.

Wonderful and peaceful getaway from the usual condo/beach stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I truly enjoyed a taste of "rural" Big Island living. We weren't there long enough but really appreciated the hospitality of our hosts. The bedroom and bath were very comfortable. The "kitchen/dining area" in the garage was a bit different but well supplied and worked very well.

We'd recommend staying here for a taste of more "real" Hawaii living and we plan to return. It's well situated to take in attractions of the north of the Big Island and still be close enough to the great beaches in the Kohala district.

Sushi Rock restaurant in Hawi was terrific.

Absolutely Enjoyable Always In Season

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with our stay at "Always In Season" and would highly recommend it to others. It was our first time on the Big Island of Hawaii. We were in Hawi for a wedding and spent four nights there. Donna and Kevin were very gracious hosts and attentive to our questions and needs. They checked in with us every day to provide suggestions for activities and ways to have an enjoyable time in the Hawi area. We loved the hiking ,snorkeling, and park suggestions. Having fresh fruit-oranges, grapefruit, lemons, bananas and papaya every day from their bounteous garden was a real treat! There was a fruit juicer and blender in the kitchen, so we were able to make our protein smoothies every day. We enjoyed eating the fruit without juicing as well as it was so sweet and juicy. We enjoyed having coffee outside in the morning, and a glass of wine in the evening with the wonderful view of the ocean, of their garden and sheep, and with the horses next door. The bedroom and bathroom were downright comfortable, and we had a lot of privacy. The views from the bedroom and bathroom of the garden area were lovely. The kitchen provided all the usual necessities and more. It had a sitting area and a view of the front yard if you wanted it. There was also another separate sitting room on the property to read or relax with views of the garden. All in all, we wish we had more time to spend there and will return to the wonderful Always in Season VRBO.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Always in Season. It's hard to decide which aspect was best. I think picking fresh citrus and squeezing fresh juice was among the top. The property was lovely and quiet. We were able to relax in the privacy of the yard. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. Donna and Kevin were lovely hosts, giving us great advice on where to go as we visited the area. I would highly recommend Always in Season and I hope to return.

Hawi, is known as North Kohala’s biggest little town. It is the bicycle turnaround for the annual Ironman World Championship held every October, the best whale watching coastline, delicious eateries, brilliant artits and musicians, organic farming, unique shopping opportunities, wonderful alternative healers including massage therapists, acupuncture, naturopath’s, herbalists, yoga therapists and more .

This charming historic town is situated on the northern tip of the Big Island rich with rich history and culture.

The Climate is a bit cooler than the hot coastline and we get our share of refreshing, revitalizing wind, which keeps the air some of the cleanest in the world.

A few miles north of Hawi is the fun historic town of Kapaau, home of the original King Kamehameha I Statue. Here you will find Kamehameha Park, which offers free use of great tennis courts, a public swimming pool and wonderful children’s playground. There is even a small user-friendly golf course for a nominal fee.

Continue driving east on Highway 270 and you’ll literally come to the end of the road at the stunning Pololu Valley Overlook where you can enjoy a spectacular view and hike down to the valley. Keokea Beach Park is not to be missed as a wonderful place for picnic.

A few Miles south of Hawi are my favorite swimming and snorkeling spots on the Island. We will have to guide you to get to some of them. Mahukona Beach Park is my favorite place to whale watch and swim. If you want to fish, we can send you in the right direction. There are many historical sites and parks along the coastline to enjoy. Kawaihae is 17 miles away and offers great dinning and music at the Blue Dragon Restaurant, or you can enjoy Café Pesto’s cuisine. This is also where one of the islands most used harbor resides and where the old style Canoe teams launch their boats.

We have a great Farmers Market every Saturday under the majestic Banyan Tree. Terrific Art Galleries, excellent restaurants, and endless entertainment await you in the quaint villages of Hawi and Kapaau.

Guests can go on energizing hikes using the nearby trails. Kohala Zipline and other fun Eco Tours are 5-10 minutes away.

Mahukona Beach Park and spectacular Pololu Valley are just a 15 minute drive away.

Always In Season is a 1 hour drive from the Kona Airport and close to just about anything this magical Island has to offer. We love assisting our guests with their island vacation.

There are also wonderful class's and events at the Kohala Village Hub, Yoga in several places, Check at GoKohala website.
