Custom built private home with plenty of room for single person or couple to spread out. Lots of windows for light, view and natural air conditioning. Situated on a working sheep farm, the covered lanai overlooks pastures with ocean views.
Write code, a score, your memoirs, paint in the gardens, relish the quiet. Convenient to the village with shopping, a theater for movies and live performances. Watch the sheep graze, or hop over to the beaches, horseback ride, hike, star gaze or indulge in fine dining.
We are a family owned farm, raising wool sheep, grass-fed beef, and egg laying chickens (NO roosters!). We are at a comfortable 1250' elevation with warm days and comfortable evenings.
Jan Dean purchased this farmhouse in 2005
Our sons own the property, but they are busy building their own families and careers, so they had us develop the old sugar cane land.
We love our cooler elevation, our tropical gardens, and having a place where work is meaningful and productive.
This is a place of non-distraction, color saturation and room to move, think, believe, create. Close enough for lots of activities, and stuffing yourself with world class Pacific Rim cuisine.
We have 100% grass fed homegrown Maluhia Farm burgers available for your lanai barbecue.
If you're looking for a place for a little quiet down-time, this is it. This is the kind of get-away-from-it-all spot that soothes your soul and helps to heal whatever ails you. The place was immaculate. The view was awesome. The bedding and towels, top-notch. The small kitchen had everything we needed, and then Jan added a package of home-grown beef that was marvelous! Oh, and oranges, lemons, and herbs from the yard.
If you go, please know that it is not terribly close to a beach.
Bring a hair dryer, if you need one, but soaps, shampoos, conditioners and lotions are all supplied. The washing machine was on the fritz, however, so Jan and John offered to let us use theirs.
I was a little nervous about having sheep, chickens, and cows as "back yard" neighbors, but it couldn't have been nicer. This is not a "barn yard" situation, but rather a pasture and field with well-cared for animals. The only creatures that gave us any issue at all were the ubiquitous ants, and they were just in the kitchen and only made themselves known once or twice. Can't totally get away from them anywhere in the islands, and a bit of bug spray will take care of anything that judicious clean-ups don't prevent. We just learned to clean up immediately, and then didn't have a bit of trouble.
On the whole, this was a lovely spot and we would not hesitate to recommend it.
This cozy and comfortable ohana is a special find on the Hamakua coast. It's located at the perfect elevation, not too hot, not too cold and just enough rain to make the land lush with fruits, flowers and trees. My kids and I stayed here for an extended period of time and were very pleased with the peacefulness of the farm and the well-appointed accommodations. Jan and Jon are attentive hosts and were ready to help out whenever needed. My eager kids asked Jan a number of times to take them into the pastures to visit with the sheep, feed the chickens and collect eggs, and each time she didn't disappoint. They still excitedly talk about their time at the farm and will hold these memories forever. It is also an excellent place for star gazing. Highly recommended.
The historical village of Honokaa is 7 minutes away, and 9 miles further is Waipio Valley. Kalopa State Park is just up the road.
