Aloha! We are Matt and Noelle with two year old Micah and three daughters age ,9,7,5. Matt grew up in the Philippines so felt at home when he moved to big island. Noelle was born and raised on Kauai, got her degree in California and travelled abroad, living in Italy 6 months, Switzerland, new Zealand 6 months and other places) before moving to the big island. We have a family bakery cafe business in town ( inspired by living in Europe with fresh organic sourdough, croissants, coffee...), but we are not asking for work at our business, rather an exchange on the home front. :)
We are a homeschooling family with a dog, 3 goats, rabbits and guinea pigs. Our girls are super sweet and just wonderful (no bias!) And our two year old Micah brings us so much joy! We love to be in nature, practice martial arts ,(Kung Fu, jiu jitsu), read good living literature, sing, dance, cook, eat healing living food, enjoy community and nap! We are due with baby number 5 the end of October and are thrilled to be welcoming another joy to the tribe!
We have very much enjoyed hosting people from around the world in the past and look forward to welcoming you!
UPDATE in august:
We are looking for one girl to join a shared room with one or two other girls from August 11th through November or into December.
We would like a go-getter who values healthy living, is clean and considerate in sharing space and happy to be flexible with work tasks in the garden and home.

We think it would be nice to plan a group dinner together once a week. We go into hilo often, two times a week for jiu jitsu from 3-6 and your welcome to catch rides (2 people)
If time allows and you ask me, we can show you sourdough baking as well as other natural fermenting like kim Chee. Practical herbalism and knowledge of local Hawaiian plants. Please don't be shy to ask!
Experience the blessing of joyful children (who sometimes bicker) and funny kid conversation. We are musical and sing and play guitar.
We are very busy and value our individual family space, but will be happy to help you in everyway we can!
We are busy building our family business (bakery cafe) and more importantly, investing in and raising our four children. We are not available to be tour guides everyday (as our lives are very full) but we hope be good hosts while you enjoy our island and look forward to getting to know you and share life together during your stay.
There will be food available in the kitchen in your apartment for you to eat and cook for yourself. Specifically, organic eggs, organic sourdough bread from our bakery, butter,jelly, organic peanut butter, bean,rice, some veggies, some fruit, salt, pepper, local honey, coffee and tea. Of course you can also buy other food items you may need. Our location is right in pahoa downtown, 10 min drive from the coast cliffs (note, not water access). Hilo (bigger) town with several good ocean swimming areas is 30 min away. Ideal experience for someone interested in exploring hawaii (note: consider renting a car) while having a home to do so from!
Some days we will need help with house work help with maintaining and expanding our garden beds, permaculture food forest landscaping , composting, some help with animal care including milking a goat, help cleaning house, some meal prep, run errands, various household tasks.
Experience the beautiful hawaiian green jungle (note: rainy, but warm) in our Puna district of Hawaii, close to the newest lava flow on earth!
A shared bedroom in the two bedroom apartment below us Sharing the kitchen, bathroom, living space with other workaways.
Our house is right in pahoa town with a spacious yard. Very serene and private back yard - think tropical rain. Our house is about a ten min drive to the coastal mini beach at uncle Roberts (they have a wonderful wed night market with amazing music and great food and local made products). 15 minutes to Stunning black sand beach (clothing optional). 20 min drive to the newest lava beach on Earth (!!!!) and geothermal pond. Our house is a few minute walk to a health food store, shops, kava kombucha bar, organic sourdough bakery, live music dinners, Thai, Hawaiian, italian and more.
Hilo is 30min. Kona 2 hours. Volcano town 1hour.
Hitch hiking is common here, but obviously unpredictable way to travel, and there is a bus that picks up close and goes around island, but does not come frequently and requires walking to places of interest. If you don't have a car you may want to rent one for weekend travels around the island. There are so many things to see! Volcano national park, Kona beach camping, Mauna kea, old time cowboy country of waimea, South point. We may have a spare tent to lend you.
