The farm is here as well with the chickens, ducks, cats and dogs keeping us entertained! The farm is staffed with a crew of young adults who harvest the fruits and tend the crops. Our fruit stand is open daily, stocked with our fresh fruits and garden goodies!

We loved our stay at this organic farm in the jungle! The Main Lodge is the entire upstairs of the house where Janelle lives with assorted cats and dogs and (outside!) chickens and a duck or two. It has a private entrance, and you park right next to the porch and stairway leading up to the covered deck with outdoor seating. Another deck on the other side of the house has more outside seating and a hammock. Warning: there be roosters here. If you can't handle their early morning conversations,, I recommend staying in one of the several other cottages on the property where you will still be able to hear the roosters cocking at one another through the jungle, but it wont sound like they are standing on your bedpost,

We loved the mosquito netting draped over the beds in the two bedrooms, though we did not really need it at this time of year and the 5th person in our party had none sleeping on the bed in the main room. The one bathroom has most of the shower wall open to the jungle, with only a screen and a curtain for privacy. All the rooms had ample windows that we left open the entire time, screened. Full kitchen, but drinking water provided in jugs. We used the tap water for making hot tea and coffee though.

There were other guests but we never saw them. We did see some of the WWOOF volunteers working the farm. Janelle gave us a tour.

We visited volcano national park after dark, and closer to the farm we enjoyed the Wednesday night party-feast at Uncles just down the road maybe 20 mins, and close than that another day we swam in an outdoor pool fed by warmed rainwater that trickles in (or up??) through warm rock and has a constrained in/out to the surf. It felt about 90. Deep enough to swim but shallow enough to stand up everywhere, either on sand or smooth lava rocks (not sharp). Like a giant outdoor naturally heated public pool. We took Janelle's beach towels.

This lovely house in the forest is just magic. The sounds of the frogs at night from the forest all around were beautiful. Lovely cats, dogs, fruit, views from the balcony, book library, and of course the wonderful hosts who were friendly, helpful and welcoming. They also grow delicious rambutans! Yum yum! Thanks for welcoming our family and blessings to you x
