Susan was amazing. A secret gem, I almost don't want to tell anyone else about it! The treehouse is mindblowing, as is the food and location. See you next year!

Cozy Sunrise Suite on Homestead
I loved getting to experience multiple locations at the Garden Goddess Farm, and really wish I'd been able to stay in the Treehouse! HOW COOL! The spaces are a little closer together than I anticipated, but each unique and sweet. The tipi is pretty magical, the Tuscan Room quite stunning in my opinion, camping on the land was lovely with deer and night critters, a little hot at the peak of the summer, but that's not unexpected! Mahalo!

Cozy Sunrise Suite on Homestead
Susan is an absolute blessing to this planet. Words cannot show the gratitude my partner and I have for her farm, cooking, conversation, kindness and infinite more. The value of our stay was so incredible. The hotel industry could take many notes on customer service from Susan. Also her on hand help, Ricky, was a major joy who take such good care of us on arrival to our departure. Do not expect luxurious amenities by any hotel standard but do expect exceptional cooking if you decide to opt in for the fresh farm brunch. Our lives are made more brilliant thanks to our decision to stay with Susan. I hope you make the journey to this joyful space.
