    Big Island, Tiny Sanctuary

    “Big Island Tiny Farm” was the original name given our place by a neighbor-friend, with tongue in cheek, because I’m always outside tending to our tropical fruit and coffee trees, bushes, and plants. We share what we harvest with neighbors and friends, but we’re not a business or “commercial” grower.

    We and and our guests consider our home a sanctuary.. so I just changed our Workaway Host Page Title.

    We’re not a commercial yoga studio.Yoga is simply part of our daily way of living.

    We built a sweet studio home on a lovely half acre lot in Honoka’a. It is like a live-aboard Yoga studio with an open kitchen, a large private bathroom, and a second outside shower.”

    Our studio home is our sanctuary, and we live a simple, mindful life. We’re in a small neighborhood on the edge of Honoka’a with good neighbors and an awesome view of Maui on clear days. Our property is only a half acre, but it is large enough and very fertile – so we are growing an “Edible Landscape” that will provide much of our diet.

    We have 3 mature mac nut trees, bananas, guavas (3 varieties), mangoes, avocados (3 varieties), lemons, cara cara and Valencia oranges, rollinia deliciosa, Abiu, Brazilian cherries, coffee, dragon fruit, green tea, and more - and they’re doing great!

    I’ve drawn up plans to build a small outbuilding, and we’re also ready to build several raised beds for veggies. We’re also interested in creating an island-specific compost setup that won’t attract rodents and undesirable pests (roaches).

    Our studio home is quite open, with lots of glass (and screens). It is simple, clean, and safe.
    We have a small tent and a large tent to offer. We built our studio with an extra outside shower, which is pretty cool.

    When we get an out-building (120 sf. space) finished, we'll also be able to offer it for simple lodging.

    Honoka'a is our favorite place in all of the islands... Lots of beauty and community. The Hamakua Coast is alive, awake, and thriving in many ways. We’ve watched an agri-cultural renaissance evolve here for the past dozen-plus years. We love it so much we put down roots!

    Our season to welcome guest volunteers is generally mid-NOVEMBER TO EARLY MARCH.

    We only host ONE Workaway guest-worker at a time.

    The Hele-On Bus passes right through Honoka'a:


    Please note - Honokaa is NOT Kona - it is a wonderful small town on the beautiful green (windward) side of the island, and like all of the Hawaiian Eastern / Windward shores we get life-giving rain. If you want touristy night life, big city buzz and hanging on the beach every day - best to search for a host on the west side.

We ask our guests to be mindful and follow our simple house rules - to help us maintain a safe, clean, healthy environment.

    Honokaa is an old-world Hawaiian community - not the touristy experience that some travelers limit themselves to.
    There is an awesome Agri-Cultural renaissance underway on this beautiful Hamakua Coast. The Hamakua Harvest / Honokaa Sunday Market is more than a typical farmers market ♥️.

    We have ensured that our guest helpers have enjoyed many natural and cultural wonders of our area - and beach time.

    You’re welcomed to join us with meditation and /or yoga practice if you like.

    I (David) am vegetarian - mostly vegan now. My past veggie, vegan workaway guests have been quite happy with my meal prep.
    Shing is an awesome chef and when she’s on-island I acquiesce!

    If you plan to extend your time in the islands, we're happy to help with local knowledge, must-see's, and less costly options & opportunities.

    We're close to the amazing Waipio Valley.

    Honokaa is alive & thriving and there is often something going on in town. (Movies, concerts, & dance at our “Honokaa People’s Theatre”, the local pub, several restaurants with music, etc.

    Kamuela / Waimea is a 15 minute drive. Hilo is 45 minutes, Kona is 1+ hour. We have some amazing back roads and trails for running & biking - just out our door. (We have a guest bike). There is much to see and do on our beautiful Hamakua Coast and the Big Island.
