Barbara Lamm is an incredibly friendly, kind woman, full of positive energy and stories to share. She has the heart of a healer, and it’s evident through her actions and maintenance of her beautiful property. With three sheep, multiple chickens, and a cat, amongst other animals, a true ‘farm’ is produced. Her house that she built in 1974 sits atop a beautiful hill and overlooks the ocean, a perfect location for the taciturn tradition of breakfast. Along with what you bring, Barbara generously provided papaya and a variety of other fruits, and offered information on the many coffee, avocado, guava, aloe, macadamia, etc plants and trees she also grows. By far the most relaxing place to take children or go by yourself. My daughter and I stayed in the guest room of the house with s bathroom and my boys were in the green house with the bunk beds. . The green house has bunk beds as well as s tent with an air mattress . It is a true farm experience within 30 minutes from town . Free WiFi is also available for those who enjoy the best of both urban and rural worlds. We loved the property and our host .
Barbara is a great host with lots of information on places to visit. The site is easy to find and well located for visiting the west coast. But the shower is a little rudimentary it’s better to take a shower on the beaches.
Amazing location & amazing host!
Amazing location & amazing host! Do not hesitate to choose Barbara's fruit farm to pitch your tent. Our host welcomed us with many stories, delicious hand-picked avocados and lime, and even some macadamia nuts to crack ourselves!
Would definitely go again.
Inspiring company, perks for labor
Barbara welcomed us like an old friend. We camped safely and soundly in the yard and used the refrigerator, sink, microwave, toaster oven for meals. In our initial meeting with Barbara, we learned she needed some help on the property and offered to work. We enjoyed cutting back some branches and piling sticks with her for about an hour and we're generously rewarded!
Barbara’s place it so sweet and so is Barbara! She had SO MANY awesome suggestions on what to do in the area. We spent the afternoon down at “Two Step” snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins, definitely a pretty sweet spot to check out! Barbara has set up a few places for guests to stay, you can choose between the converted greenhouse (it is pretty rustic) and the flat clearing behind her house. There is bountiful fruit on this property and the papaya we picked was delicious! Barbara allows guests to sit on the upstairs deck of her house and use the table, which is wonderful; it looks out on her property and the ocean, the perfect spot for meals or a morning cup of coffee. Thanks so much for showing us around Barbara! It was so nice meeting you
Barbara was a delightful and knowledgeable hostess in the lovliest setting! My sister and I were very pleased with her recommendations for stunning nearby beaches, hikes, parks, Mac nut and coffee farms, This is an ideal place to experience the heart of the island in a secluded, safe and accommodating camp atmosphere. Go here to see the amazing nature of Hawaii in a peaceful sanctuary with opportunity for the wide range of nearby adventures and discoveries nearby.
Great camping site. Barbara is so nice. Large space. A lot of fruit trees. It is in a remote location. There are farm animals around. There are a little bit of mosquitoes but barbara has a good stuff against them!
