We have a private jungle "tentalow" site with an ocean view; 2 minutes by foot from parking and our communal bath house which has an outdoor hot shower, sink, and "his and hers" flushing toilets. The tent is covered and on a raised platform. It is 16ft x 7ft and made to fit up to 8 people or 3 queen size beds. For an additional fee we have 2 twin futons and 1 queen size futon, towels and sheets to use. You are also welcome to bring your own tent provided it fits on the 16ft x 8ft deck.
Our neighborhood is exactly 1 mile down a dirt road and up a small gated driveway. We are a small "off grid" organic farm that specializes in harvesting and pressing sugar cane. All around this area people have large working farms that specialize in crops such as Papaya, Macadamia Nuts, Palms, flowers, and various other exports. We are 3 miles from the colorful "alternative" artist and farmer village of Pahoa in the center of the district of Puna known for its off grid living, farming and sustainability, lava flows and geothermal activity. We are also 3 miles from the ocean and nearest surf spot and beach park named Isaac Hale. There is also a large public saltwater fed thermal swimming pool for relaxing and picnics. About 15 minutes away by car down the coastal road there is a beautiful black sand beach called Kehena. A bit further down the coastal road leads to the Hawaiian village and Kava Bar in Kalapana with nightly live music and authentic Hawaiian culture. The road ends there and loops back to Pahoa via Highway. In 1983 lava came down and cut off the coastal road and buried most of the village of Kalapana and area under a sea of lava.
Puna is full of lava cracks, craters, lava formations, steam vents, and lava tubes ready for exploring! There are various tide pools we may suggest to you and a green lake at the top of a small volcano crater that they say has no bottom....
Our family farm is located on 10 acres of lush tropical rainforest with over 12 varieties of avocado, 10 varieties of banana, and sugarcane. It used to belong to the Puna Sugar company which owned most of this area for almost 100 years; so there are old railroad tracks, broken pottery, and artifacts all over the land. Various workers were brought to the Hawaiian islands during the early 1900's to work in the sugar trade which eventually led to Hawaii's unique multi cultural society. Workers lived in "sugar camps" and were mixed between Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Puerto Rican, Portuguese, Samoan, Tongan, Tahitian and various other Pacific Islanders. There are ancient Hawaiian Mango, Coconut and Jakfruit trees that were planted over 200 years ago. Iolani has an elevation that goes from 300ft to 800ft above sea level so there are various micro climates for growing various exotic fruit trees from all over the globe. We have deep rich volcanic soil as we are on the base of a small dormant crater. We have planted over 80 exotic fruit trees over the last year with the plan to eventually have an exotic fruit farm with daily "tasting tours".
