* There are 3 farm cats that like to hang out around this hale sometimes. They are very friendly, bordering on annoying at times so feel free to shoo them away or give them as much love as you'd like - they'll happily take all the love or bugger off when told to. Their names are Cheshire, Snickerdoodle, and Leon.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The property was absolutely beautiful. The yurt was cozy and showering outside in the jungle was a dream.
Elena was the sweetest, she came to greet us when we arrived and showed us around which was very helpful. Although we could not attend she was offering an art class and a yoga class while we were there.
I wish we could have stayed longer than one night and would absolutely recommend this experience!
Rustic and magical jungle hale
I had a lovely stay on the Earthsong aina. Upon arriving I was greeted by two friendly kitties and I made my way through the forested path to the cute and quaint hale. The creatively constructed bungalow has limited amenities but has what you need for a short stay or a long weekend. The bed was comfy and the lanai was wonderful for yoga or just to sit and listen to the sounds of the jungle. The outdoor shower was nice to cool off and the toilet is in a separate structure nestled in the thick and beautiful jungle. Elena and others on the property were kind and inclusive of their offerings, and I joined them for a yoga class. The rural property invites exploration through their many fruit trees and tropical plants and flowers. Up the road is Paradise Meadows and Farm, which offers farm tours, delicious coffee as well as many samples to try and buy. Farther down the road is South Point and Green Sand Beach, which is worth the journey. This jungle retreat is close enough to activities and amenities, but far enough away that you can feel at peace in nature.
Tranquil rainforest cabin
Though not a traditional camping spot, anyone taking the chance to stay at Ryan and Elena's cabin is very unlikely to leave wanting. My three night stay was a wonderfully tranquil experience. The stay was in a fairly large cabin with a covered porch, an outdoor bathroom and shower, an indoor kitchen with two propane burners, a large fridge, a table, couch, comfortable bed, and wireless Internet until about 10 pm. The cabin is surrounded by dense foliage lined with fruit trees and tropical flowers. As a guest, you are welcomed to wander the whole property, which includes a fire pit, gardens, a yoga studio, and many other fun surprises. Ryan and Elena were extremely welcoming and attentive hosts, while also being very respectful of personal space. Beyond a peaceful stay in their cabin, Ryan and Elena shared their yoga practice and their avocados with me, both of which were very welcome and nourishing. The surrounding area is also a joy, with plenty of fun outdoor things to do. While I was yearning for a simple camping experience when I stumbled on their place, I am glad to have found this experience instead.
