  • Description


    Aloha ! we are a family home by the ocean on the dry side of Kohala Big Island. We are right on the ocean with huge uplifting views of the whole north Kona coast. We have an abundance of sunny days and enjoy the island lifestyle with dolphins swimming by and whales jumping around in the winter season. However ! we want to let you know right away that if can sporadically be very rugged here as we are partially off-grid and there can be dramatic weather: huge winds, sideways rains, or massive dry heat in the middle of the day.
    We are hard workers, so we keep a balance of life by swimming. snorkeling, paddling, and dancing. When we can we visit an abundance of nearby farmers markets as well as cultural and educational events.
    Because of Covid 19 we prefer welcoming guests who are currently on Big Island. We can consider hosting someone from off island for who is very comfortable and obedient to a 2 weeks quarantine and who is considering a longer stay with us.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Joshua is born and raised here on Big Island and has deep roots. Anneka has a counseling background. We are both Tao Healing Hands Practitioners and lifelong learners constantly exploring new interests. Living on an island we need to understand sustainable ecology and harmonizing amongst diverse cultures. Travelers from abroad are especially welcome and english language fluency is not required. We have found an open heart will make communications flow.

    Landscaping is a constant as there are thorny Kiawe trees on the property dropping their branches. We are focusing on landscaping now including moving construction materials, reshaping rock borders and creating a fire pit. We have three very friendly and active hound dogs who could benefit from your attention.

  • Hébergement


    Posted some photos of accommodations although it seems our sleeping configurations remain very changeable. In general, people who are used to off-grid living, have experience camping, and enjoy being close to nature vibe the best with us. It seems we always have an over overabundance of food in the fridge and on the shelves with family members randomly dropping off avocados, oranges and bananas. Please be prepared to nourish yourself and fill in with any special food requests, personal dietary needs, and always be prepared to purchase your own prepared foods from the farmer's markets, yum!, or during an outing or road trip.

    There is a mini-mini-mall nearby with tourist shops and restaurants, some still open for grab and go. Only two buses daily so independent and resourceful travelers benefit the most from a stay. We need to do a phone interview to make sure we are compatible from both sides. Mahalo !
