  • Description


    We are an Oceanside home in South Kohala, Big Island Hawaii, surrounded by the magnificent beauty creation of nature, as dolphins and whales come to play on our doorstep. We are two Tao Healing Hands Soul Healers who have uplifted our environment, and continue to evolve our home forward.
    Currently we have one beloved elderly mother who lives with us and she is facing significant health challenges and requires extra care.
    We love to dance, sing, play guitar, ukulele, snorkel, swim, poetry and taking in the unique cultural happenings of Hawaii Nei.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There is a cliff in front of our house and with access directly into the ocean for truly hardy and experienced cliff navigators and rough tide rock water climbers.
    There is one small beach within walking distance plus a little general store, shave ice, fresh fish shop and restaurants.
    Joshua and Anneka can share Tao Healing Hands, a huge Tao library, and conversation about the journey of the Soul. We also like to stay active going to the canoe club nearby and paddling, dancing, or exploring farmers markets.
    We tend to be very generous bringing guests to a wide array of local events.
    At the same time, those who value solitude and connecting to nature can benefit the most from a stay here.
    Joshua leads poetry writing workshops once a month and Anneka is developing an internet business to help people connect to soul wisdom and follow inner guidance.

  • Accommodation


    There is an indoor daybed in the living room for caregivers, which can be expanded to a queen sized bed for couples. We also have a bed on the lanai, or covered porch area, and some people really enjoy sleeping outside others say it can be too windy for overnights.
    We are happy to share food, basic healthy foods, and the fridge is always full. We are not providing extra foods like restaurant meals or specialty foods from the farmers markets.
    Please be aware it was hot here this summer, especially midday. Also gets cooler and breezy but can be windy and stormy in winter.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are a few morning and evening buses daily, and we can give rides as they fit into our schedules. We are tranquil, peaceful, and maybe a bit naive. We are content with the simple things of life and hope you would be also.
    Please only express interest to stay if you are a good communicator with excellent follow through and you are truly interested in being of service and making a cultural connection.
