Property description

Aloha,
Come, relax and enjoy this traditional Hawaiian Home and Orchard set in the last 80 miles of undeveloped coastline on Hawaii’s Southernmost point. Featured is our 3 bedroom, 3 full bath, 2200 sq. ft. comfortable updated farm home. Located in the lush, green and beautiful Na`alehu countryside, we are situated on 35 acres and can accommodate up to 12 guests in their own beds. Fifteen acres of productive organic orchards surround the house, with our own adjacent 20 acres of private hiking trails next door. Our property is in turn surrounded by Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park, with the new South entrance Kahuku Unit just two miles from our door. The ideal spot for organic food lovers and true eco-adventurers. A sense of spaciousness and peace pervades.

ATTENTION...this location is remote and for PURE NATURE LOVERS, and does not have amenities like shopping, fine dining restaurants, movies etc. Included in your stay you have the opportunity to let go of the day-to-day drama and sincerely appreciate the magnificence of Nature that Hawaii has to offer. We are a busy and productive ORGANIC FARM and our Ka`u district produces some of the best food on the island. You gotta cook it yourself!

On our Property and with the Orchard Master’s direction, you are welcome to wander the orchards, harvest and eat off any of the abundant macadamia, avocado and citrus groves. Our docile herd of sheep and turkey's will keep the young and young at heart entertained

At `Ailani Orchards we believe that the education of our Aina (Hawaiian for land and lifeblood) will set us apart. We hope to share this with you and your loved ones.

Our 3 bedroom and 3 full bath home is lofty and spacious with an open layout. Rich hardwood floors throughout provide a warm feeling, while tile in the baths, kitchen and separate laundry room make up the compliment. The home is two-story providing many different areas in which to take a breather after a long day at the beach, hiking the Volcano, or a simple lazy morning enjoying freshly roasted coffee, grown just a few feet from your door. Our two-level wooden lanai (deck) area is approximately 1600 square feet, perfect for your morning Yoga, an evening BBQ or having your family Chef de Cuisine prepare your meal with fresh produce from our orchards as you watch the changing colors of the sunset over the ocean from our upper deck.
We offer three well-appointed bedrooms, two with private baths, each with traditional big bamboo furniture and high thread count cotton sheets and comforters to keep you cozy. Our Macadamia King Master bedroom (about 360 sq feet) offers a California King bed, an ensuite bath with shower over tub, custom extra tall tile and oak double sinks, and a view of a grand-daddy macadamia tree off the back deck. Our Banana Queen Room (about 190 sq feet) offers a comfortable Queen bed, closet and full bath with a view onto the banana patch and the Norfolk Island pines. Our Orchard View Queen Room is a spacious 200 sq ft room on the main floor with separate bath next door, shower over tub, and a lovely view out onto the orchard and our roaming herd of sheep. Finally, our large open Great Room with gorgeous tiger wood floors (about 650 sq ft) can accommodate an additional 4 guests each in their own twin-sized beds. Surrounded by windows and with almost no light pollution, this room has a great view of the blazing starry night skies, some of the best in the world for star-gazing.

Our caretakers and staff are very knowledgeable about the island and are always available to help plan out your next adventure. We are here to share our Hawaii state of mind and make sure you fully enjoy your stay.

We are located near the small town of Na`alehu (pronounced nah-ah-lay-hoo) directly 65 miles from Kailua-Kona and 65 miles from Hilo airports. Visit our famous and remote Black Sand Beaches of Punalu`u and Honomalino, or swim at the rare Greensand Beach at Mahana Bay formed from olivine crystals. For a thrill JUMP off the 40-foot cliff at South Point into some of clearest waters in the world. Enjoy Polehimu, a rare anchialine pool housing an endemic shrimp species. Explore the second longest lava tube in the world at Kula Kai Caverns just 10 minutes from our door—24 miles and still mapping! Hawaii Volcanoes National Park New South entrance is a wonderland for birdwatchers boasting an enormous pit crater, home to many rare species. Our area holds wonders that are many of the Islands best kept secrets. Are you ready?

We strive to show you the real Hawaii and truly believe we can. Let us help you create lasting memories you can take home with you. Experience a lifetime of all the adventure and beauty that this island has to offer.

Me Ke Aloha Pumehana (with warm regards) From Your Hosts,

Barney and Elizabeth

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

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 Captain Cook, HI, USA:
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.
