We encourage you to reach out if you'd like recommendations or have any questions.

Also nearby: Big Island Bees, Peleaku Peace Gardens, Painted Church, Puuhonua a Honaunau... We are a HOSTED rental, which is legally required for agriculturally zoned vacation rentals like ours. Public transportation is not an option in this area. You'll definitely need to rent a car. Even though we are only 1 mile from Kealakekua Bay, it is down a windy road (400ft climb) without a shoulder, so not the ideal beach walk :-) ~ Your bedroom is directly below the upstairs kitchen that is also a vacation rental. There is a white-noise machine in the bedroom as a sound 'buffer" but if you do not want to hear any other humans, this might not be the vacation spot for you. - Hawaii Mandatory short-term occupancy tax collected at check-in (14.25%), but can vary slightly when the State raises taxes ~ The entire farm respects quiet hours 9am-8am, with no music and only quiet conversations during these hours because no one closes their windows in Hawaii :-) - The Mango Farm is a place for relaxation, restoration and re-charging ~ We are a working, organic mango farm with 65 mango trees and about 15 other types of fruit trees (permaculture, organic, korean natural farming practices), and we have extensive vegetable and herb gardens. We also make essential oils of lemongrass, tulsi, curry leaf, cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus, basil, catnip and many other botanicals. We make plant-based medicine and value-added products like moringa powder, mango chutney and tinctures from time-to-time, so let us know if you're interested in products we are making. ~ This rental is located on an Organic Mango farm and can have mosquitos, bugs, spiders and geckos/critters. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness, but remember, you are on a farm. There can be wild and free-roaming chickens and roosters. There are birds of all kinds, coqui frogs and you might even spot a mongoose running across the farm. We also have farm cats and although they are so sweet and friendly, they are not allowed in the house. We mention all of this in case you want a fully sanitized experience - if so, this is not your best choice :-) Even though we are an organic farm, we contract with a monthly pest service to ensure the best possible experience while on the farm. We have very high standards and want this to show :-) ~ We are very easy to reach via the Airbnb app and also have full-time and on-site caretakers. We encourage you to reach out if you need anything.
