Captain Cook house description

Relax into nature and all of the blessings of Hawaii at PapaLani (which means Heavenly Earth Mother in Hawaiian). A serene 13+ acre organic avocado and macnut farm with an abundance of tropical fruit trees, veggies, herbs, flowers & berries.
There is a complimentary herb & greens kitchen garden for you to enjoy as well as produce, fresh farm eggs, cultured vegetables, jellies & nuts available for purchase right from the land you will be staying on.

Located 30 miles south of Kailua-Kona we have a perfect year-round climate, at 1600 ft. above sea level on the side of Mauna Loa Volcano (the most massive, active volcano upon our Mother Earth!). Savor the total seclusion and quiet. PapaLani is authentic Hawai'i, unspoiled by crowds and resorts. A great location that gives you many options for experiencing the Big Island's natural diversity. You are just 4 miles from the closest place to jump in the ocean and 15-minutes to Ho'okena Beach State Park for sunbathing and swimming with dolphins. A 20-minute drive brings you to the famous Pu'uhonua o'Honaunau (Place of Refuge) National Historic Park and Kealakekua Bay where you can kayak to Captain Cook's monument and snorkel with an endless variety of tropical fish and sea turtles & dolphins. We are only 65 miles from Madame Pele's live action at Volcanos National Park, 12 miles from KulaKai Caverns and Manuka State Park. There is also light hiking on the property where you can enjoy seeing all sorts of Hawaii's wildlife and plants. Feel free to explore the 30+ variety of fruit, nut trees & berries on the property as well as the organic veggie gardens. You can learn how to become more sustainable while you are here by seeing how we implement vermiculture (worms), raising chickens, permaculture, Korean Natural Farming, composting, mulching, solar, catching rainwater from the roofs for all water usage for the property, etc. you are welcome to roam the property and find a nice place to meditate & relax. Organic fruit, coffee, nuts and veggies may be available for your purchase if desired.

The spacious redwood home has a 24'x24' living room with 4 skylights and a large lanai overlooking the avocado field. The home is fully furnished and the large country kitchen is loaded with everything you'll need. There is a full bath indoors but if you have never had an outdoor rainwater shower you are in for a treat with the outdoor garden shower (heavenly). There is a Far-Infrared TheraSauna on property and available for adult use at a very low rate or complementary with your therapeutic massage. There is also a full range of discounted spa services available on site for guests. Everything is provided for you to take to the beach like lawn chairs, towels, boogie boards, noodles, umbrella, coolers, etc. Snorkel equipment available for $25/week.

In December 2012 the eco-cottage was completed on the property. If you have a large group, you may want to rent both the farm home and cottage. The buildings are far enough away from each other for total privacy, yet close enough for families/friends to be together when you would like. If that is what you are looking for you can share 2 kitchens, 2 baths, 4 bedrooms with sleeping for 14 in beds. The eco-cottage website is www.vrbo.com/434922

Our water source is 100% rainwater caught from the roof of our home and stored in catchment tanks. 10 gallons of county water are made available to you in the kitchen for drinking.. the containers are refillable.

Nikki (owner) lives on property in the ohana. If you'd like, she would be happy to give you a farm tour, let you know about Natural Farming, assist you in things to do, places to go and local happenings. She can take you swimming with the wild dolphins or touring around the island. If you would like to set up a tour ahead of time just let here know. Nikki has been a certified massage therapist for 20 years & if you would like to schedule massage/spa services please allow advanced booking time for that as well. You can check out her website at www.ahawaiiandayspa.com. If you prefer to have 100 % privacy that is fine and will be fully honored (sometimes you really want to just get away from it all). The farm is a working organic natural farm with chickens, 2 friendly outdoor cats, plants, trees & gardens… so tending to the farm might be occurring during your stay. Your privacy is fully respected.

                  I purchased this farm because i am interested in creating a sustainable life & peaceful country living. I love to know where my food is coming from and be involved in the process.
