Aloha, Come enjoy a peaceful homestead in a jungle paradise.
I live with my 2 daughters (age 14 and 16) on a 5 acre tropical farm.
We have been living a sustainable lifestyle and homesteading for over 14 years in Kealakekua, Hawaii. We live in an 80% recycled home surrounded by organic gardens and permicultured landscapes. We have a cat and a dog. My children are independent and helpful.
I am looking for a solid, responsible, and independent person who can contribute to our scene. It is also very important that we hold the same values for well-being. We are very busy so we are looking for people who can easily fit into our family's flow.
We will be starting a photo collection of our family, homesteading practices, local community gardens, beaches and farms. Summer will be in full swing and our island’s bounty will be at it’s fullest. We will be harvesting various fruits and vegetables and preparing dinners from this bounty. We will help you make a clear connection to the earth and see how we are provided for.

We live at 1700ft elevation, so it is slightly cooler and refreshing at night. You will have access to plenty of fresh tropical fruits and vegetables. We live 10 minutes drive from the ocean and 25 minutes from downtown Kona. Local Bus stop is at the end of my road.
Our Island offers amazing hiking right from my home, (check out the 7 mile Captain Cook Monument trail). The entrance is a 10 minute walk from my house. ...all kinds of ocean sports, and camping. Also 10 minutes from dolphin resting area, so you can swim with the dolphins in the morning.
Please bring your own masks, fins, snorkel, and beach towels.
There will be garden tasks, and smaller weed clearing tasks that need to get done on a weekly basis. Sometimes there are DIY projects in our home that require tools or artistic creativity.
I hope you are interested in photography as we will be starting a new project of documenting our family, homesteading practices, local community gardens, beaches and farm life here in Hawaii. You must also have interest and knowledge of healthy cooking. We do eat meat and you should know how to cook meat. If you will be on a cleanse during your stay, this is not the place for you. Cleanliness is very important and helping with household chores will be expected. We guarantee you will have an amazing time on our peaceful property
