Waipi'o Hostel and Campsite is located in Kukuihaele less than a mile from majestic Waipiʻo Valley. In a place where horses and wild turkeys often wander by, this is the old Hawaiʻi. A place where neighbors stop to talk and life is sweet as the smell of sugar cane grass. You'll enjoy a wonderful ocean view and the many fruit and macadamia nut trees on the property. We occasionally offer farm fresh eggs from our flock of hens as well. We usually have perfect weather- sunshine, blue skies, a nice breeze, with temperatures in the high 70's.
The campsite is part of the Waipi'o Hostel, which has three bedrooms and a common space living room. Our camping guests are welcome to use the outside kitchen, covered lanai, and hostel bathroom. We also have high speed Wi-Fi.
Our guests tend to be excellent company, usually visiting from Europe, the US Mainland, Australia and beyond. Many use our place as a launching point for hiking in Waipi'o Valley or backpacking trips into Waimanu Valley. We also rent high quality Mountain Hardwear 2 and 4 person backpacking tents and camping gear for use in the valleys, or in the backyard.
Our guests give us excellent reviews:
"I enjoyed visits from wild turkeys and the world's most affectionate cat. I enjoyed the ocean view, the flowers and all the fruit I could sink my teeth into, and most of all, the hospitality extended by Greg and Harmony. They made sure we were comfortable and felt at home. We had a wonderful experience."
"This was a really fantastic place to stay. We were greeted by Greg and his family who live upstairs. They made sure we felt welcome and had everything we needed. The other guests in the hostel were really lovely too. A bonus of staying here was the abundant fruit trees - macadamias, guavas, bananas, avocados, which were all delicious. The area is beautiful too - a short (but steep) hike down into Waipio Valley allows you to either go to the beach, or view a fantastic waterfall if you head off in the other direction. Overall it was a fantastic stay, but it was the people there that really made it memorable. We wished we could have stayed longer."
The Alegre Plantation House and Waipiʻo Hostel was built in 1922. It was owned by the Alegre family for over 75 years. Hospitality was one of their trademarks and we welcome you with the same aloha.
