Dragonfly Ranch:Healing Arts Center in Kona Hawaii

Our beautiful indoor/outdoor accommodations attract people from all over the world! The activities include snorkeling, diving, kayaking, hiking, yoga, etc. We are situated on the southern side of Kona - only 3 minutes drive from the best snorkeling beach on the Big Island called "Two Steps". We are 19 miles away from the heart of Kailua-Kona, so if you are interested in what the city has to offer, then our Ranch is probably not suited to your needs. Since we have our own little community of wonderful people, no one seems to mind that we are in the county, away from the hustle and bustle of traffic and city business.

As the "Ohana" team, we are a family of about 15 people who love to enjoy life and work together cooperatively - in loving harmony. In exchange for your 25 hour per week help you will receive the following: - Basic accommodations - Grains (Rice, Quinoa, Oat Meal) - Variable spices (for cooking) - Greens from the garden (subject to availability) - Purified filtered water - Free internet with Wifi - Clothes washing facilities - Access to extended library - Use of snorkeling gear - Linens, towels and toilet paper

Overall my experience at Dragonfly Ranch was good! The hours are divided through different tasks well (breakfast, gardening & housekeeping) and fair at 25hrs/week. The owner Barbara has a lot of knowledge about health and wellness & loves to share. She also shared her flower essences with me. I highly recommend having some sort of transportation. It can be very isolating without it, but I often hitchhiked to get where I needed to go. Food was ample, only staples are provided and food off the land. If you’re creative you can make it work! I loved the team there very much and miss them already!

Claire was wonderful. When I mentioned that she could use my very fancy wedding dress to marry herself, she did so the very next day! She had beautiful vows she wrote. What fun! She was a delight to have here and we wish she would return.



Fue una experiencia inolvidable, he conocido personas hermosas, con las cuales compartí momentos muy agradables.
La casa es preciosa, la ventaja y desventaja al mismo tiempo, es q esta alejada de la ciudad, por lo cual puedes disfrutar de vivir en un paraíso hawaiano, pero si quieres algo de ciudad es necesario tener un vehículo (la gente del B&B suele ir al pueblo y puedes ir con ellos, también hay un bus pero sólo 1 al dia).
Con respecto al trabajo, es tal cual dice en la aplicación. Housekeeping más que nada.
Gracias a todos, mucho amor para el hermoso Team Aloha ❤
