We have a private jungle "tentalow" site, 3
minutes by foot from parking and our communal bath house area. There is an
outdoor hot shower, sink, and "his and hers" flushing toilets. The campsite is a raised 16 x 7ft platform that is covered for your tent with lantern included.
Our neighborhood is exactly 1 mile down a private dirt road and up a small gated gravel driveway. We are a 3 year old, small, "off grid" organic farm that specializes in harvesting and pressing sugar cane. All around this area people have large working farms that harvest crops such as Papaya, Macadamia Nuts, Palms, flowers, and various other exports. We are 5 miles from the colorful "alternative" artist and farmer village of Pahoa in the center of the district of Puna known for its farming and sustainability, lava flows and geothermal activity. We are also about 3 miles from the ocean and nearest surf spot and beach park named Isaac Hale. There is also a large public saltwater fed thermal swimming pool for relaxing and picnics. About 20 minutes away by car down the coastal road there is a beautiful black sand beach called Kehena. A bit further down the coastal road leads to the Hawaiian village and Kava Bar in Kalapana with nightly live music and authentic Hawaiian culture. The road ends there and loops back to Pahoa via Highway. In 1983 lava came down and cut off the coastal road and buried most of the village of Kalapana and area under a sea of lava.Puna is full of lavacracks, craters, lava formations, steam vents, and lava tubes ready for
exploring! There are various tide pools we may suggest to you and even a green colored lake at the top of a small volcano crater that they say has no bottom....

The vibe at I'olani Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I had a nice stay there. John and Ariel are really sweet people and I think that if you are searching for a jungle immersion, this is the place to be. Bring some earplugs if you cannot sleep in a noisy environment because the place is crowded with frogs, birds and pigs. I loved it!
