Host was amazing and the best we’ve had on HipCamp. Very secluded site, private, and inviting. One of the quietest sites we stayed on the island which led to a great sleep. Would absolutely stay there again and would recommend.

It was awesome speaking with Ian, I wish we had more time. Looking forward to their return. Great camper, highly recommend. They made me laugh when they mentioned the "Jimcident".

Colin and his wife were so sweet and very accommodating. They helped us pick a great spot on their property and had great recommendations around the area for breakfast and snorkel spots. Would definitely recommend a 4WD vehicle but otherwise it’s a great spot to hit if you’re on the west side

A great spot to chill and enjoy a beautiful sunset on the west side. Thanks to Colin and his wife for another awesome stay - its a wonderful lowkey spot and we got lucky with some solid weather and clear skies to view the stars.

We stayed on Colin’s farm in a camper van and absolutely loved it!! Colin was the perfect host. The farm was beautiful and had epic west facing views out to the ocean horizon for a picture perfect sunset. We rented the ‘Banyans’ van from Campervan Hawaii and wanted the security of a private spot to stay where we weren’t at risk of getting told to move on. On our first night, the drive up the steep, bumpy road to the farm was a bit hair-raising in our van, but it’s definitely doable and was easier after each journey. Just take it slow and enjoy the adventure! A 4x4 vehicle would definitely be preferable, but FWD can get it done. Colin was really communicative the whole time and gave us some great suggestions for places to visit. The farm had clean porta potty toilets and a gazebo covered area for a good, dry tent pitch. This is a working farm and has so many cool trees and fruits that you’ve probably never seen outside of the supermarket! Colin spent time with us to ‘talk-story’, as Hawaiians say, and gave us great insights into the coffee farm business. We were even able to buy fresh roasted coffee directly from the farm! Very cool! If you are looking for a more unique and authentic camping experience than the state park environment, or you need a safe & beautiful spot to park your campervan, then Luana Farm is for you! Mahalo nui loa, Colin!

The place was exactly what we were looking for: just a ground protected from the rain and surrounded by Nature. NOTHING ELSE. Colon was very friendly and helpful. The camping site is located inside his farm. There's a tarp that will protect you from the rain, portable toilets (bring your own toilet paper), and a fire place (good to use if its not raining). Some tips if you decide to stay there: (1) bring confortable sleeping pads, the terrain is flat but very rocky; (2) bring lights (headlamp and/or lanterns) cause its pretty dark over there, exactly how it's supposed to be to look at the stars! and; (3) if you decide to make fire, bring something to start a fire (old jornal and canola oil or alcohol will do), and to chop large pieces of wood into smaller ones (I believe Colin would provide you a axe or machete if you need). Highly recomended if you want to have a camping experience and not staying in a "camping resort".
