Naalehu farmhouse description

Our LARGE VACATION FARM HOUSES (**ASK ABOUT OUR BRAND NEW FARMHOUSE LOCATED ACROSS THE STREET AND CURRENTLY OPEN FOR CHRISTMAS WEEK) are located at 1700 feet elevation with perfect weather, usually about 75 degrees with a breeze. Our house boasts over 2200 (and 2400) square feet of private indoor living space, and 1600 sq feet of outdoor deck (lanai) with Upper Deck Ocean Views! Our HUGE family room ensures that we can sleep 12 in beds, and with 3 full private baths, we offer a unique setting for a serene and healthy organic family vacation, or small group retreat at a truly bargain rate designed for today's economy. WE ALSO INCLUDE AN ESPRESSO MAKER, COFFEE GRINDER AND REGULAR COFFEE MAKER FOR YOU TRUE COFFEE LOVERS!

Our 15 acre farm in the beautiful Waiohinu hills of Ka`u district on the South side of the Big Island is a gorgeous natural escape from city life, overlooking the last 80 miles of undeveloped coastline in the State of Hawaii. Tucked away, the house has easy access directly off of the main highway, the island belt road, highway 11 for convenience. Privacy and quiet is guaranteed as the vacation house is 7 acres up the 1,000 foot driveway on it's own private 5 acres of our Organic Estate.


Our FARM HOUSE has lovely double door entrance into to the large Great Room/living room with large windows that look onto the macadamia nut orchards, replete with frolicking lambs. This large room has four built-in full twin beds that can be use as lounging couches, or sleeping space, depending on your group size. This Great Room is separated from the rest of the house for privacy and fun. The upstairs offers one private bedroom and the Master suite with double sinks vanity and OCEAN VIEWS!
The location is serene, lovely, GREEN EVERYWHERE, with sheep roaming the orchards, wild turkey, chickens, and pheasants. A REAL NATURE LOVERS PARADISE!

In the neighborhood at ONLY twelve minutes drive lies Punalu'u BLACK SAND BEACH, rated 3rd best beach in Hawaii by the travel channel that offers tennis and golf as well as excellent swimming, boogey boarding, and snorkeling. About twelve miles down the nearby South Point Road lies the historical and pristine natural area known as KA LAE a sacred place for Native Hawaiians, where the first of Hawaii's people landed. Also down this road lies a rare GREEN SAND BEACH that takes a good 2.5 mile hike each way, or sturdy four wheel drive vehicle to access.

At fifteen minutes drive North lies the second longest lava tube in the world at KULA KAI CAVERNS--one of the best tours on the Island into this amazing 20 mile long (and still mapping) tube is offered by a local tour operator. All in all this a rare area full of exotic natural treasures.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We are Barney & Elizabeth, Sam & Gabe, owners of Ailani Orchards, a family owned and run organic orchard since 2001. We pride ourselves on offering truly healthy organic food including the NOW FAMOUS KA`U COFFEE! We produce some of the best tasting and healthiest dehydrated organic macadamia nuts available on the Hawaiian Islands, and our coffee is ahhhhh...well... you'll have to taste this divine brew yourselves to see what we mean! We also invented and produce our own chocolate macadamia nut butters made with real dark and white Belgian chocolate and our own organic nuts. It is a delicacy not to be missed. We believe in an organic lifestyle as a basis for our teaching, both with kids and adults. Barney is Head Farmer and Orchard Master, and Elizabeth is an internationally bestselling author of three books on the Inkas of Peru. We are the Hawaii headquarters for the Wiraqocha Foundation for the Preservation of Indigenous Wisdom and offer programs on property.

              Why the Owner Chose Naalehu:
              We began as an organic farm and then added this vacation rental house to our property to offer people a unique opportunity to participate in a real working farm and see real life in Hawaii which adds to our farm charm.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              Our vacation rental here on our farm allows you to stay in the place where the FAMOUS KA`U Hawaiian Coffee and macadamia nuts are grown and processed. Eat food from the land you are walking on! Your vacation rental experience is enhanced by our organic farm surroundings and the beauty and MANA of this pristine natural area of the Big Island.
