This is a breathtaking space that our family has poured many decades and multiple generations into. We are surrounded by jungle, with a freshwater stream running through the entire property and unobstructed mountain views. You are welcome to explore the grounds and enjoy the land. Chickens roam freely, with the occasional pig sightings in the evening. We do have a fair bit of bugs and geckos. If you’re especially sensitive to mosquitos, this might not be the place for you! Waimanalo is a small agricultural town filled with nurseries, horse stables, and a high concentration of Hawaiian homes. It remains mostly undeveloped and authentic, and we aim to keep it that way. While nestled against the mountains, we're just a five minute drive from the beach. We are fifteen minutes from Kailua town, where you'll find several grocery stores, shops, and restaurants. There are so many great beach and land activities nearby, and I'm happy to lead you in the direction of whatever you might be interested in! We are very protective of this land and town, but would love to share the space with respectful travelers looking for an authentic experience. While we are very hospitable, we are not in the business of hospitality. This is a working farm. I am happy to accommodate travelers, but I am not here at your beck and call. If that is the experience you are seeking, I think you would be happier elsewhere. We appreciate all of your bookings, and profits go directly back into farm infrastructure and new fruit trees. Thank you for looking!

Banana Patch Bell Tent
Really chilled and beautiful place
I loved staying here! So chilled out. Only you and the chickens! Warnings of an early wake up call by cockrells, after a while you don’t notice it. I arrived at night, so getting the view of the mountains when you wake up is amazing! The shower room was clean and shower lovely. It’s also so close to one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii!

Orchard Wall Tent
The Perfect Dog-Friendly Escape
The Orchard Wall Tent is a really special spot! We wanted to celebrate our anniversary somewhere private and peaceful where we could bring our mid-size dog, and this was absolutely perfect. Lex's directions were perfectly clear. The pamphlet they provide for check-in is incredibly informative and thoughtful. You can tell they care about the land and their community. My only idea for improvement would be to consider moving the porter potty, as right now it's directly on the other side of the tent wall from the bed, so when the wind shifts you can sometimes smell it. Thank you Lex and Taylor for a phenomenal weekend!

Banana Patch Bell Tent
It was a beautiful view but..
It was a beautiful view but the inside was dirty…there was stains on the blanket and you can tell the rug inside wasn’t washed …the outside of the tent had bird poop all over it which could have been hosed down prior to our arrival for the price we paid. We paid a cleaning fee…it says it was a 100$ to rent ..but it ended up being 180$ for cleaning fee’s ect. Also provide a grill in the ad but charge 10$ to use it.

Banana Patch Bell Tent
The farm is beautiful, the area local and relaxed, and the tent extremely comfortable. We had a fabulous week staying here. If you’re looking for a unique, comfortable, local O’ahi vibe this is it.

Orchard Wall Tent
Orchard Wall Tent and Bell Tent
The Orchard Wall Tent and Bell Tent were both nice and comfortable. Both feel very private and are located on a beautiful property. It was nice to have beds, electricity, water, and bathrooms in a camping, glamping, atmosphere. Lex was always quick to respond and helpful as well. I would definitely stay here again and recommend others to stay as well.
