    Hidden jungle gem

    Wow, what a hidden gem this is! My friend and I planned a quick trip to Maui and this place exceeded our expectations. The hut had everything we needed: electricity, a warm bed, and an outdoor shower (if you haven’t showered in the jungle you are missing out). Every morning, we woke up to the lush jungle and birds singing — truly magical. Our host Ryan was the real reason our trip was incredible. He made sure we were comfortable during our stay by offering to let us use his washing machine, bathroom, and letting us take a dip in his hot tub (highly suggest going in at night when the stars are out). His coconut workshop is a must, especially if you are a coconut fans like us (: His love for coconuts made us appreciate them even more as we learned how to make our own coconut milk, flour, and even bacon (yum). I travel often, and this is by far the most extraordinary place I have stayed. Highly recommend! Thanks again Ryan!

    The owner was helpful, kind, and caring. The cabin is very cool! And the outdoor shower is something you’d see in a Pinterest post. Would highly recommend this listing. I’d be surprised if someone would disagree.

    Ryan is a fantastic host! He's constructed a wonderful little cabin, well-appointed, and situated in a lovely spot that feels quite private. The farm itself is charming too. Two thumbs up!

    Coconut Camp for Foodies! A special place on this planet learning a lost art skill from a special farmer and rad surfer dude, Ryan Burden.
    The cabin Ryan built is adorable, comfy, and has a tree house feel nestled high above the jungle and gulch.
    Ryan oozes Aloha. He was a wonderful host and was very sincere about making my stay a epic experience.
    I highly highly recommend signing up for his coconut harvesting and processing class!

    Absolutely beautiful property. Every detail of the cabin is well designed, and the outdoor shower is amazing. Coconut workshop is a great opportunity to get a taste of the host’s expertise.

    The stay at Coconut Camp was relaxing, informative, and restorative! The cabin was comfortable and had everything we could need. The outdoor shower was perfect. Ryan, the host, even let us have a soak in his hot tub at night, allowing us to relax and chat about the day while stargazing. I highly recommend staying with Ryan at Coconut Camp and even taking his coconut workshop- we learned SO much about coconut trees and had the opportunity to make coconut milk and sample everything from fresh coconut water, milk, the coconut meat, and the oils. Thank you for the hospitality and the education!

    Coconut Camp was great! It was so relaxing and felt very private. The host knows a ton about coconuts and is extremely kind and friendly. The little cottage was clean and simple, with a wonderful outdoor shower and a toilet available in the main living space. Relax in Upcountry Maui just 20-40 minutes from the beach (and close to cute little Makawao). My partner and I camped and stayed at a resort in Maui, and yet this was probably our favorite place on the island we went!

    We had an incredible time while staying at the coconut camp. Ryan is loving, accommodating, and extremely knowledgeable. We enjoyed all of our conversations with him. He is warm and inviting. His passion for the land and coconuts is tangible. We learned so much about the coconut.

    Ryan helped us to make fresh coconut cream and gifted us a hot cup of Kona Coffee. Best coffee of our life!!!

    We highly recommend staying here! The little cabin was cozy, the outdoor shower was a dream and the Coconut Camp was by far our favorite place we stayed on the island.

    So grateful for our experience!

    Sending love!

    This was my first Hipcamp experience, after reading about it for the first time a few weeks ago when it announced its new funding round. I just happened to be heading to Maui with my 17 yo son and saw that one of the Hipcamp experiences was a Coconut Farm there.

    Suffice it to say this was one of the most special, genuine, educational and connected travel experiences I have had in a long time.

    Ryan is extraordinarily passionate, knowledgeable and values-driven about the art and science and culture and history of the Coconut tree. His tour was fantastic, covering the full lifespan and lunar cycles of the fruit, and included making fresh coconut milk for our coffee and frying up some coconut bacon. Charlie was consistently engaged throughout the experience, amazed at the range of culinary and dietary needs that this single plant can accomodate.

    The cabin is simple and clean: a bed, a desk, an outlet. The outdoor shower is rejuvenating. The open kitchen where Ryan holds court is a great comversation starter.

    The farm is no more than 15 minutes from the town of Paia, and less than 10 min from an amazing Japense restaurant called Nuka that Ryan turned us onto. And yet we felt like we were deep in the jungle. The scream of birds late night and chickens in the morning intensified our dreams .

    Could keep going, even though we were only there for two days. Highly recommended. Want to come back already.
