Beautiful place but lots of critter
Beautiful and peaceful place. We absolutely loved it. Unfortunately we ended up staying elsewhere though because we had quite a few unwanted creepy crawly visitors. It is definitely in the middle of the rainforest so it is expected to some extent but we ran into a fair amount of cockroaches and just didn’t feel comfortable staying.

The cottage had holes all in the screen windows and screen door allowing all kinds of jungle bugs to come in. We only stayed an hour before it become to unbearable. I am really allergic to mold and there is 100% mold growing in there as proven by the rotting loft. The place also wasn't very clean and the host was unpleasant

Jan’s farm is very beautiful, it is situated in the jungle and the nature all around is lush. The shack itself is very big and has everything one needs. Bathrooms and showers are functional and clean! Everyone at the farm is helpful, kind and engaging. I would definitely recommend it for a stay in the big island!

The cabin was private and quiet, nestled in a beautiful and private garden Despite being at a busy little farm.

A piece of old school Hawaii.
We had a sweet and relaxing time during our stay here. A friendly reception and we enjoyed our time in this super laid-back, old school slice of Big Island. Puna is a wild and special place, largely cut off from the rhythms and ways of the modern world, and this space reflects this well. Abundant fruit trees, gorgeous views of the jungle and chickens and pigs, plus an epic bathtub situation! Thank you for a lovely stay.
