This experience was phenomenal this was the second host we stayed at in Hawaii, and it was nothing short of magical. The sunrises every evening will take your breath away and the snorkeling felt like traveling to a new world. This property is seated 2,000ft above sea level yielding perfect temperatures but dreadful mosquitoes (bring lots of spray). A bus is available only a few miles down the road with a the farm stop along the way. Hitch hiking or biking is a must to spend every day to the fullest. The hosts are sweet, kind, and caring and reward hard work.

This farm is located on the side of a volcano with a beautiful view of the Kona coast of Hawaii. This farm is for someone looking for a more outdoor, rugged living experience. The cabin Ana and David provided was a quaint and provided enough space. It is up a very long and steep hill, so if you plan to da bunch of adventuring during your stay, you should be pretty fit and I suggest you become familiar with the bus routes and times, and maybe consider getting a bike. The hours were perfect and the work load wasn't too physically demanding. They were great hosts and good communicators!

The host, David is respectful and sweet. The host, Ana warns you that she is manic as you are being driven up to here house. Not up to date safety or cleanliness for your stay, if you are not a strong walker then this big hill isn't for you. Another young man was kicked out for no reason other than prejudice for all I could figure out. Be careful, some host will say and do anything for you to humble down. Do not recommend, but if you can just work with David, you might just have a good and peaceful stay.

I was supposed to stay with Ana for a month but ended up leaving after one night at Ana's house. Ana was very nice and easy to talk to. She was willing to pick me up at the Hilo airport and take me on many beautiful drives. The reason I left so quickly was due to the accommodations. The cabin was fine to sleep in, but I was given a blanket covered in termite poop(I did not use). Things were not very cleanly and I just overall didn't feel comfortable staying there. I do not recommend this stay if you want a clean/tidy environment. Ana was very kind but overall I just couldn't stay there.

A really special and unique experience! The environment in Hawaii is mindblowing, you get to see so many differents tropicals plants, trees and even you get to see some animals on the farm!! Don't worry they are not dangerous! The farm is located in a Mountain pretty far from the city so if you need to go somewhere, just ask them and most of the time they take you places with pleasure 2-3 times a week. The work is mostly weedwacking and selecting weed and we only work about 4 hours a day. We got to visit so many awesome places in Hawaii, but my favorite one is the Volcano. Mahalo Ana and David
