If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I stayed in the Namaste Cottage on my week long trip Hipcamping around the Big Island. It was a nice little cottage with a bed and some cool writing all over the walls. Meditation books, a book on veganism, and some hippy vibes were in the cabin and the area.
Pahoa is a pretty remote area, since the area was destroyed by the last volcanic eruption in 1983. Volcanic rock is everywhere and there's not much civilization. I enjoyed my time in the Captain Cook area and Hilo area a bit better than Pahoa.
Some highlights of the Hawaiian Retreat include:
-fresh fruit trees everywhere, with fruit to enjoy
-the cottage is indoor/outdoor... so you feel like you're outside when you're sleeping
-close to tidepools and hot ponds
-Island Naturals is a super cool store in Pahoa Town, make sure to go there
A great retreat for the price
Janelle has an amazing farm and the cottage is truly lovely. Clean, spacious, comfy bed, and great amenities, including a nice little outdoor kitchen set up in the back of the cottage, complete with propane stove, cooking and dining gear, a wash sink, and a cooler to store food. We were provided with solar lights, potable water, and citronella incense, and the shared bathrooms and HOT shower are clean and well kept.
The only downsides for us were that the towels we were given smelled of mildew/wet dog, and during our second night we were woken abruptly to water dripping in our faces from the ceiling, which remained for the reset of the night.
Of course these things can easily be fixed and shouldn't deter you from staying on Janelle's amazing farm.
