We are proud to offer hammock cabanas which are a unique luxurious form of amenity-rich camping (often called glamping). You don’t need bring all of your bulky camping gear on the airplane in order to experience the best camping in the United States.

Each cabana is screened in for comfort allowing the tropical breezes to flow through and each has closeable rain shield curtains to keep the wind and water out when necessary. They each include two large adjustable hammocks which allow for either flat or cradled sleeping. The hammocks can each hold up to two people (up to 450 lbs or 204 kg) so guests may choose to either sleep together or separately. Also inside, there is a solar powered overhead light with pull cord and a large cooler to store your cold food and drinks with an ice block (sold separately nearby). Towels, blankets, and pillows are included. Don’t waste your Hawaiian vacation cooped up in a hotel room. Come enjoy the real Hawaii, where the gentle breeze and tree frogs will lull you to sleep each night.

Glampers have access to our open air full bathroom with running water and a stunning rainfall shower (located at the main house). They also have access to our covered outdoor kitchen with grills, a sink, prep space, dining area, dishes, cups, silverware, and cookware (also located at the main house).

Very nice cabana in secluded, quiet area. All accomodations were taken care of and everything that we needed was there. Beautiful scenery!

We had a great time - cabanas were roomy and weatherproof, the shared kitchen and space well maintained, and the shower on the upper lanai had great views of the ocean.
We'll stay here again, next time

Great place to stay. Hammocks were comfortable and appreciated the cabana. The shares indoor and outdoor kitchen was great. It had everything needed to make a great meal. Easy to interact with other guests if you wanted. The waterfall was an awesome surprise. Don't miss out on this place.

I highly recommend staying at this location. I slept like a baby in our cabana while listening to sounds of nature around us. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The outdoor shower was nice. Beautiful sunrise. Etc etc etc.

This place was very cool! You drive down over a ravine full of lush tropical plants. The bathrooms had a nice shower and toilet situation. Seemed clean. Good trash/recycle bins. Shared kitchen seemed to have what you need to cook something basic and drinking water. The cabana is a simple enclosure with netting/cloth walls, a cooler, and two hammocks. Unfortunately, one hammock seemed broken (you touched the floor) but luckily we were sleeping in our camper van. Overall good stay and had great grounds

Options to experience this as more of a hostel type of vibe, which we loved, or as a more private little cabana getaway! So fun to meet other travelers. Outdoor and indoor kitchen and bathrooms, awesome swimming hole nearby, hosts were super helpful and kind. A true gem. I will definitely bring my friends/ family back here!
