Disclaimer: we are a small family farm, we do not have the resources to provide you with the level of service and cleanliness that a corporate resort can provide you. If this is what you are looking for we kindly ask you to book elsewhere. Stay in our unique enchanting waterfall house on the unspoiled heavenly Hamakua coastline. Just minutes from downtown Hilo, our beautiful and spacious kid friendly 2 bedroom Ohana situated in front of an amazing private waterfall with a midnight blue swimming hole and over a half mile of private riverfront nature preserve is everyone's dream . Native birds and the Hawaiian hawk make their home here in the native forest. Let the sounds of the waterfall and the fresh tropical air rejuvenate you.

You will be renting our private kid friendly waterfall house right in front of the Kikala waterfall. The Ohana is an enchanting 2-level cottage surrounded on three sides by a beautiful rainforest and next to the Kikala stream. The tropical mountain beauty that will surround you here is unsurpassable, and the views are breathtaking. The most spectacular waterfall and swimming hole of the Kikala preserve is right in front the house, and unlike other locations, the river runs right through the middle of our farm, so we can offer you access to over 1/2 mile of private stream front with incredible vistas that rival National Parks. And most of all, on our farm, kids can be kids, there's a ton of space to run around and play, pet our goats, cuddle with our cows, and splash in the river. You will feel like you are in a remote wilderness yet you will only be 12 minutes from downtown Hilo.

Please note that even though you have your own private space, this is a hosted rental, meaning that the host lives on the property and is available to handle any issues for you.

Waterfall, river, nature preserve, petting farm with goats and sheep, fruit trees, meadows. Please note that all outdoor spaces are shared. While our waterfall is private, meaning that it's entirely surrounded by 14 acres of pasture and jungle that we own, the waterfall is not for exclusive use of the guests.

Our space is a great space for families with kids and for kid friendly travelers. You will be a guest in our private Ohana on the Kikala nature preserve. Since we actively maintain the Kikala preserve, it's very likely that you will see us around. We pride ourselves in our Aloha and we will welcome you on our farm as family. We have two children who aren't shy, and we love to host other families. Kids are most definitely welcome.

Our farm is a working farm, with cows, fowl and goats. You will hear the animals and may also meet members of our farm Ohana.

We live in a beautiful pastoral part of Hamakua Coast just North of Hilo at 1,600 feet elevation where the climate is perfect with incredibly pleasant balmy days and cool nights. You will be comfortable in shorts and T-shirt and you will not need AC. Even though we are only 15 minutes drive from lively downtown Hilo, you will feel like you are on a secluded retreat in the mountains overlooking the ocean, complete with waterfalls, swimming holes and nature preserve.

You will need a car to get around, there is no public transportation available in Hilo.

We are a 100% smoke-free farm. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property.

Our farm is situated at 1,600 feet elevation which tempers the tropical heat and provides an incredibly pleasant climate with a temperature range of 72-80F during the day and 66-70F at night. Expect a mix of sunshine, clouds and rain pretty much every day. This is a Cloudforest, so also expect a mix of sun and rain showers, and occasional midst.

By far my all time favorite thing to do is to be a dad to my little boys. If only we could all have the awe and excitement they have for discovering the amazing universe we live in. Somehow as adults we just forget. My boys are also lucky to have the most amazing mom in the world, my wife Michelle who will go to the ends of the earth for them.

I really love to be outdoors and whenever I can I am out there gardening and tending to our little botanical paradise. I love the tropics and love to travel to far away places like Southeast Asia, the islands, Thailand, well, any place tropical.

I aspire to be open minded and I like to hang out with others that share that aspiration. As a host, I'd like to get to know my guests and do my best to be a good host that will make their stay better and more fun. I am always curious to meet world travelers from other countries.

Stay directly on the river. Open your door and see the waterfall.
