About the property

Enjoy Your Own 3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath Farmhouse On 2.3 Acre Organic Farm

The Jungle Farmhouse provides a unique Hawaiian experience where you can enjoy nature and seasonal fruit from our farm -- including fresh avocados, tangerines, passion fruit, pineapple, lemons, papaya, jackfruit and bananas. We also provide you with farm fresh eggs from our free range chickens. And NOW is a great time to stay at the Jungle Farmhouse. In July 0f 2016 a New LAVA Flow began flowing and it is currently flowing into the Ocean! And the farmhouse is just 15 minutes from the free lava viewing parking. And we can help arrange tours, bike rentals and provide maps, flashlights and headlamps so you can safely view the lava.

Our farm is a great place to experience and learn how food can be grown in a sustainable and organic way. The farm incorporates the lush rainforest with towering trees and we grow our food using the natural surroundings and permaculture techniques.

The location is great too! We are just minutes from Pahoa Village with great places to eat and shop, and close to Black Sand Beaches, Snorkeling, and Warm Ponds. Nearby farmer's markets provide more local

produce and locally crafted products.

The plantation style home has lots of windows and views of the natural surroundings, a washer and dryer, and covered parking. Two lanai (porches) on the front of the house and a huge screened lanai on the back of the house provides wonderful views of the tropical forest, gardens and farm. The lower patio features a dining table and gas grill and smoker too.

Built in 1970, it is a classic solid redwood home designed by the famous home builder Harold E. Hicks and features his signature design elements that include Clear Heart Redwood Interior and Exterior Single Walls. Oak Flooring was another key wood standardized design feature and offered durability and comfort as the lighter color of the oak complimented the redwood walls. Jalousie windows were a standard design feature to maximize the trade winds and, once again, the comfort of the homeowners.

The Living and Dining areas furnished with a great collection of antiques, are a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing. Oriental rugs compliment the oak floors and the windows allow for great filtered lighting and cool breezes.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need

and includes a great collection of vintage dishes, gas stove and oven, microwave, large fridge, mixer, toaster, and coffee maker and a bar and counter with stools.

The three bedrooms offer sleeping for 6 in beds and we

can provide extra futons so the house can sleep up to

eight or ten if you use the couches! Two of the bedrooms have sliding glass doors that open to the lanai and one features a half bath and walk in closet. Towels and linens are provided, along with beach towels too.

The main indoor bath features a tub and shower and sink and has slate tile and redwood trim. There is also a outdoor shower overlooking the garden with hot water too! Our hot water is heated by the sun, using solar panels when possible and when its cloudy our electric heater kicks in.

We also provide:

Secure High Speed Wireless Internet

Cable TV, DVD/CD Player, A good collection of board games, CD's, records and DVD's and Snorkeling gear

About Danny Miller

Your Hosts, Danny and Matthew, who also own and operate the Hilo Bay Hale Bed and Breakfast in Hilo, opened the Jungle Farmhouse vacation rental in Sept. 2011 and live part time in a cottage next to the Farmhouse.

Danny, who moved to Hawaii in 2004, is also a documentary filmmaker producing films for PBS Hawaii about protecting Hawaii's unique cultural and natural resources. His most recent film, SEEDS OF HOPE tells the story of how Hawaii is returning to traditional and local ways of producing food.

Matthew has lived and worked around the world, opening

and managing BORDER book stores in many different countries, including on the Big Island where he has lived for over 15 years. He also has lived and studied in Western Africa and Europe.

Danny Miller purchased this farmhouse in 2007

Why Danny Miller chose Pahoa

The property is very unique, with the house perched on a small hill overlooking the jungle, providing views of the forest canopy and farm. When we purchased the property it was already planted with

mature coffee, avocado, anthurium, tangerine, banana, mango, and jack fruit. And it is surrounded by lush jungle, including pockets of native forests that are home to native birds, including the Io - the Hawaiian Hawk.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The location is great because while you have lots of privacy you are just minutes from Pahoa village.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

It made our Hawaiian adventure! The pics online don't do it justice. The animals are cute.. especially Wilbur the pig. It was close to stores, the volcano park and tidal pools! Our Host Paul was very attentive to our needs. The fresh eggs were delicious. The 3 beds were huge for our family of 4. We really enjoyed our stay. We will be back!

ultimate Hawaiian get away experience

  • 5 of 5

We wished we had booked several more nights at the jungle farmhouse! The nearby town very cute, with restaurants, shops, a local bar and a kava house. Very laid back and low key. The house was near so many beautiful locations. We especially enjoyed the snorkling and black sand beach, and of course viewing the lava flow. That's all we had time for in one day! We were also just a short drive to Hilo. The house itself was full of character, a beautiful blend of eclectic antiques and luxury touches. The host left fresh eggs and fruit on the counter for our arrival. The beds were so comfortable with high cotton count white sheets and also soft white towels were provided. If we were there long enough to make some meals, the kitchen was adorable and fully equipped. The outdoor shower in the rain forrest was a real treat. Our host was gracious and full of information about the area. We highly recommend this house for a true hawaiian rainforest experience.

I'm still smiling!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a fabulous trip to Hawaii. A first for us, and a special 80th birthday celebration for our mother. So... there were 5 adult family members sharing the Junglefarm for a week. We arrived after dark and were greeted by Danny who gave us a quick tour of the place and very generously answered our questions and spent time giving us ideas for places to eat, shop and visit. There was a bowl of fresh chicken eggs and papayas waiting for us from their garden. The next morning we were treated to a tour of the farm. It was a truly vibrant jungle of anthuriums, bananas, and a host of other plants I have seen in small indoor pots, but never many feet tall in the jungle. Danny and Matthew were accommodating and the place was more beautiful than the photos. I could go on and on. The five of us had plenty of room, and felt at home. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen -- and the kitchen was very well stocked except for a couple items... Large coffee mugs (as we were all heavy coffee drinkers) and sheet pans for the oven (we had to us a stove pot in the oven to heat our pastries). We were close to Hilo and the Volcanoes, and the little town of Pahoa had everything we needed to make ourselves comfortable. The nature sounds made us feel that we were far from the beaten path. The frogs and roosters were noisy, but I found that relaxing and enjoyable. There are cats, dogs, goats, chickens, one potbelly pig named Wilbur who made a couple cameo appearances and a menagerie of greenery. I found the place filled with aloha (although I am still trying to understand the exact nature of that special word ) and peace. I can't wait to return! Mahalo Danny and Matthew
