Fine but not as expected.
Camping here was fine. There was a sink, a shower, and a toilet, though there was not always toilet paper. There are lots of people living here, and we didn’t know who the host was until our second to last day, and only after trying to contact him/her. The phone number listed is disconnected or not in service, and even though we were in kind of an unrelated pressing situation and needed to be in touch we didn’t hear from our host until the next morning by email. When we did hear from her she was kind and understanding.
For the most part everyone was friendly, but it seems there was lots of tension between people living there. On two separate occasions people were screaming at each other.
Also everyone should know there are LOTS of dogs and cats around. Most were friendly and kept to the common area. One dog did growl and bark at us and keep us from getting past her to the bathroom one morning. When a woman finally came out to see what all the barking and growling was about, she was rude to us and made it seem like there was nothing angry or threatening in the dog’s behavior. We are dog people: this was definitely defensive growling and barking with hackles up.
All in all the farm was ok. We felt safe there and basic amenities were provided, and it’s a nice location. I just think it’s more like staying at a communal living animal rescue than what you might think of when you read the description. Nothing terribly wrong, just not what we expected:
The listing says kitchen, but we were told to use it minimally and only really used the sink. Again, totally fine, but come prepared.
The listing says “glamping not camping” and that is not accurate. It’s tent camping, on a pallet platform, under the mac nut trees, with dogs and cats pooping and peeing in the fallen leaves around you.
We were told not to drive our car to our tent site, but we were also happy to find a tent site away from the communal area where most of the action was.
I'm glad to announce that Dee is the big winner (and by far) of our "Best Outdoor shower Award" of our trip in Hawai'i, featuring hot water , good pressure, light and nice solid walls. Our stay on the farm started with a warm welcome and we were given a nice tent spot over macadamia nutshells. Facilities and space are pratical for cooking and clean. We really enjoyed our stay.

Magical animal sanctuary
Such a fun and unique experience. Although I will say that this probably isn’t for everyone (read: must love animals) for us, it was a wacky and fun paradise full of interesting characters, a stunningly beautiful natural setting and more animals and baby animals than you could ever dream of. I got to hold a day-old chick, feed a baby cow, take a goat for a walk and pet more dogs than I can count. Dee is a super friendly, eccentric and interesting lady who clearly cares a lot about her guests (and her animal family!)
Dee's farm is a great place to stay if you want super easy access to all the great Captain Cook destinations and access to a well kept kitchen, bathroom, and shower. Be aware, the tent space is not very big, you probably will only be able to fit a 3 person tent max in the space, but it's soft, flat, and covered which was great.
Rose and Ryan, the farm workers there, have gone to incredible lengths to improve the camping area little by little every day. We enjoyed a couple of avocados from their trees and fantastic and huge fire our last night there, the best way we could have ended our trip. LOTS of animals, but they stay pretty quiet at night. Bring earplugs though just in case. Hopefully, you get a chance to grab a bag of mac nuts and kona coffee while you're there.
Perfect with funny friendly dogs!
Dee’s farm is just awesome! Everything was set up great for our tent, under avocado tree. All farm is nice, clean, with everything you need. Bob and Dee was both very friendly. And their Mac nuts are just perfect!!!! And we love dogs, who makes us company our all stay! We had great time! Thank you very much Dee and Bob!!
The best camp in captain cook
This was a truly magical place to camp, with lush surroundings, a close drive to the beach, the sounds of frogs in the night, quiet neighbourhood, not to mention the friendly dogs and cats that greet you when you arrive. Diane and Bob are beyond excellent hosts, who are welcoming and provide helpful tips on where to go to maximize your stay. Make sure to get some very interesting flavours of macadamias they make on the farm. The kitchen has everything but a cooking stove (has microwave).
Loved this little farm! Some of these reviews about how there weren't enough amenities or people weren't nice are absurd. This is a working farm and people live here... they're not here for your entertainment. We were expecting a place to leave our stuff during the day and sleep at night and otherwise be out doing activities during the day. We got a super nice spot under a canopy (lifesaver since my rain fly had just failed!) right by the community kitchen. We still had a private area to sit in and everyone was polite and friendly but pretty much did their own thing. I was impressed with how nice the shower sink and restroom were. Be prepared for a lot of dogs, chickens, and cats! They will make sure you wake up early to get a head start on snorkeling. Would totally stay here again.
Very friendly farm / zoo
We only got to spend one night here, but the other campers/ farmworkers were very friendly, and the location is beautiful. Lots (and lots) of dogs and cats, plus goats, chickens, etc. Very close to the south Kona coast.
