Also down this road lies a rare GREEN SAND BEACH that takes a good 2.5 mile (45 minutes) 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.

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.

"Rustic" Hawai'i at its best!!

"Rustic" Hawai'i at its best!!
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house for 4 nights, splitting our Big Island vacation between here and a big chain resort up in Waikaloa Beach. This was the perfect balance! After the sterile but luxe resort with fancy pool, this homey, peaceful, quiet and rugged setting gave us a totally different flavor. The house is spacious, clean and welcoming. The owners are super friendly and helpful, but allowed us privacy at the same time. The property is perfect for families who love animals and nature... we ate fruit off the trees outside our door and bought yummy treats at the farm stand (Mac/Belgian Chocolate butter with the baby apple bananas!...yummmm!). The lambs and goats eat from your hands and the baby lambs were adorable! Turkeys gobble you awake each morning. The house is well equipped... tons of kids' movies to watch each night. We took day trips to the black beach, the volcanos and the Ho'okena beach (you can rent sea kayaks and snorkel equipment there). All great. The sound of the wind in the trees surrounding the property is mesmerizing! And the view of the ocean from the 2nd story deck is beautiful! We didn't see any bugs at all by the way, except for a few tiny ants and daddy longlegs. But we're not too worried about stuff like that... Overall, a very, very relaxing perfect stay! Mahalo!!

Beautiful Organic Farm House

  • 4 of 5
The house is very large and accommodating for up to 12 people. I took a small student group here and it was perfect for all of us to live and work in and go on daily trips to either the Hilo or Kona side of the Island. The drives (usually about 1.5 hours) were sometimes a little wearing on the children, but we all loved how friendly the owners were and enjoyed the tour of the orchard. The house is gorgeous and the outdoor porch makes you appreciate the land and the beauty of the Island. Whether never seems to hot or cold in this part of the Island.

Beautiful Setting

  • 3 of 5
We stayed here for three nights with four adults and five kids (ages 2-9). The house slept all of us very comfortably with plenty of beds for everyone. The setting on the farm is amazingly lush and beautiful. My kids loved walking around and watching the sheep, turkeys and other farm life. There were oranges and limes growing right outside the house and great avocados and macadamia nut products at the fruit stand on the property. The house is far enough away from the other buildings that it feels very private. We weren't there long enough to talk to the owners a lot, but they were nice and made sure we were okay. We enjoyed the black sand beach a couple of times as well as South Point and the very cute little town of Naalehu.

The only downside for me was that we did have cockroach confrontations every day. To be fair, the owners do mention this in the property description and we knew it going in. I understand that they don't spray chemicals on their organic farm. We were very diligent about putting food away and sweeping up crumbs, but it didn't seem to matter. I guess it just ended up bothering me more than I thought it would. We stayed in four different rental houses during our stay on the Big Island, and this was the only one with this problem.

Overall, great area if you like to get away from the touristy crowds. Nice house. Just some bugs. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Aloha Jessy and thanks for responding! It was a pleasure to have you with us. My only question would be: how many of the other rentals you stayed in were located in the middle of 20 acres of Organic Orchards? How Many had wild Turkeys, pheasants, sheep and Hawaiian Hawks? There is just more life here of every kind!

Wonderful place and people

  • 5 of 5
I was privledged to stay here with friends. The house is beautiful and very clean and comfortable. It is just off the highway but is so private and out of mainstream yet so accessible that you have the luxury of peacefulness mixed with convenience . The owners are amazing people who made us feel so at home that one does not want to leave. I feel as if I have made friends with them forever and would be honored to have them visit me at my home. I would recommend this to anyone I know.

A great home at a great price!

  • 5 of 5
We are a group of friends who wanted a place to get away from the rush of the city. This home filled the bill admirably. It is located away from the tourist hells on a beautiful organic farm. How can you not enjoy wandering out on the lanai to pick your own breakfast grapefruit?!
The property was fully as described - clean and comfortable. And large enough to allow the 5 of us to enjoy time together or each find our own corner as we wished. The onsite fruit/macadamia stand was awesome! And the coffee....oh the coffee...we are all full on ka'a converts now!
Elizabeth and Barney were really helpful when it came to ideas for places to go, and really made us feel like family when it came to a place to watch the Super Bowl - we had the privilege of being asked to a neighborhood fundraiser - way more fun than an anonymous bar.
If you are looking for the ultimate luxurious spa getaway, this is not your spot. If you want somewhere convenient to great hiking and away from the crowds, this is a must see. I know which I prefer and we'll be back for certain.
