About the property

This private 400 square foot studio on a 10 acre private estate and organic farm

You will experience the true aloha spirit staying in our studio on our 10 acre private estate and botanical garden. In a very private and lush garden setting, this studio will delight your senses.

The studio comes with one queen bed and one double bed, full kitchen, bath, laundry center, WiFi, and covered lanai. Mango wood trim, cedar ceiling and ceramic tile floors add another touch of tropical beauty.

A 25 minute beautiful coastline drive will bring you to the best white sand beaches. Quaint Hawi is just a short walk away with excellent shops, gourmet and down home restaurants and live music.

Start the day with breakfast on the lanai, listening to the birds singing and the wind rustling through the trees. And end your day on the lanai with your favorite beverage, watching the the sunset colors light up the passing clouds. You can prepare and enjoy your meals with the fresh, organic produce from the garden prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen. Feel at home in this cozy and comfortable space!

Guests can explore the property planted with over 250 different species of plants. Lokahi Garden Sanctuary offers contemplative walks through the gardens and tropical forest as well as a meditative Medicine Wheel. Enjoy the ocean view as you relax in the hammock near the studio. Children can feed the chickens and sheep.

We are happy to offer a complimentary tour of the estate grounds, gardens, and forests. We offer for sale farm fresh organic produce and eggs from our happy hens, on-site massage, yoga classes, spa treatments, guided adventures and cheffing.

We are in the country...very rural, peaceful and quiet with the historic village of Hawi within walking distance. This quaint and lively village has many excellent restaurants, art galleries, local shops, a popular coffee shop and live music for your enjoyment. Ocean swimming is just 10 minutes away and world class beaches, resorts, and golf just 30 minutes away. Nearby there are numerous hikes to waterfalls, sea cliffs and rain forests.

About Richard Liebmann

Natalie and Richard live on the big island for over 35 years. We enjoy sharing the beauty and mystery of the island with our guests.

Why Richard Liebmann chose Hawi

Our home is located in North Kohala, birthplace of King Kamehameha. The Aloha spirit is alive and thriving here. Our 10 acres private estate is very peaceful and quiet. Our past guests remark on the incredible beauty and peacefulness they experience while staying here at Lokahi Garden Sanctuary. We have created a garden sanctuary where the plants and trees thrive.

What makes this studio unique

The views of the ocean, and Maui, are breathtaking!!

You can experience magical sunsets every night while relaxing on the lanai, in the hammock, or the large garden.

Enjoy your meals alfresco any time of the day.

The home is perfect forgathering of family and friends..

Relaxing and private studio

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights in mid May. The sanctuary the studio is on is beautiful and peaceful, there are a number of animals to check out and a friendly dog. After leaving the airport at around 9:30 PM it was a bit tricky to find the studio in the dark, there could have been more of a description on how to find it (or maybe there was but it was lost in a sea of emails). It was often windy and rained out of the blue quite often, but that didn't negatively impact the visit. The studio has all the amenities you might need and I found the bed to be comfortable. The rustling trees in the wind was very relaxing to relax and sleep to. It is possible to walk to town but your shoes might get a little muddy on the way. Overall it was a great experience here, and the town of Hawi was nice as well. Thanks!

We LOVED our stay in Hawi! So peaceful and beautiful, it was a lovely home to come home to every day and a wonderful place to explore when we were home. Natalie and Richard were great hosts, the cottage was perfect, the lanai wonderful to relax on, and Kahu and the chickens were great company!

Garden really is a lovely sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Richard and Natalie's beautiful cottage. They have truly created a garden sanctuary... the grounds feel lovingly cared for, and we felt nurtured in every way by our time there, from the very comfy bed to fresh garden bok choy. We look forward to returning soon!

Photos were not as they appear

  • 2 of 5

It was a nice blend of nature in a quaint location, however our booking was unregistered and the room was not ready on our late arrival. Jonathan, Richard and his wife were very accommodating. There were few rodents that kept us up at night. Kavu the dog brightened our spirits.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. The door was inadvertently left open and a mouse got in. As soon as the guests notified us we set a few traps that took care of the problem. We also offered to have our guest stay in our home for the night ii she wished. (She declined our offer).
