Retreat to a Zen-like setting in the Trees
Slow down and relax in this unique redwood Octagon studio on a working coffee, vanilla and chocolate farm. Private lanai with lush tropical and ocean views and a magnificent Queen of Burma tree right out your door! Watch the stars through the octagonal skylight above the bed. This is the perfect place to meditate, read, write, dance, create and breathe! You are welcome to join in farm activities or simply enjoy your privacy; whatever calls to you!

The space
PLEASE NOTE: TO THOSE LOOKING TO WORK REMOTELY AND/OR FOR STAYS OVER 2 WEEKS:
Since this is a Retreat setting in a tropical rainforest, our primary purpose is to provide a space for guests to get away from the pressures of work. Our internet sometimes goes out during heavy weather, therefore we are cannot guarantee internet speed, heavy streaming availability or multiple Zoom calls.
Activities at our working farm may at times be near the Treehouse and therefore it is not conducive to an office/remote work environment. Mahalo for your understanding!

Aloha and welcome to our Zen Treehouse! This redwood octagonal building was originally an artist studio. It sits away from the main house overlooking lush tropical gardens and a stream and meditation hut below. You are welcome to explore the orchards and stream. Included in your stay is a tour of the farm, our complimentary estate-grown 100% Hawaiian coffee and chocolate made from the cacao we grow right here on the farm, along with other goodies. There is a supply of staples for your use during your stay.
We have a sparkling in-ground pool for refreshing dips. Your completely private toilet, handwashing sink and shower are just out the door under the covered lanai, sheltered by a bamboo forest. Enjoy the beautiful tropical rainforest setting from your private lanai where you can grill dinner and enjoy a welcoming Zen foot bath after a day of exploring.
There is a shared washer and dryer are available for guests staying more than 3 nights, we ask for a donation of $5/load to cover supplies and utilities.

COVID 19 PRECAUTIONS
WE PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND REQUIRE MASKS IN ALL COMMON AREAS

The Treehouse is completely separate from any other structure and the screened-in doorways allow for clear ocean breezes to flow through the studio. We always meticulously clean and sanitize between guests, but we are taking additional measures to assure your safety. We disinfect with a bleach solution and steam-clean all surfaces, rugs and appliances before you arrive. Dishes have been soaked in boiling water mixed with a mild bleach/detergent solution and air dried. Bedding and linens are new, bamboo/hypoallergenic fabric which have been washed in hot water and detergent and machine-dried before each arrival. We provide disinfecting supplies for your use during your stay. Please leave your rinsed dishes in the dishpan when you leave so we can wash and sanitize them before putting them in the cupboard.

The farm and pool areas will be restricted to guests only and we ask that you not use the amenities at the same time as others (except by members of the same household). Please do not invite or bring visitors onto the property without discussing it with your Host in advance.
Mahalo for helping to keep us all healthy!

Guest access
You will have use of the private lanai and entire studio. Parking is limited to 1 space. There is a short walk across a lawn and a slight slope to enter the side lanai (umbrellas are furnished) and a wagon to haul suitcases and groceries. If you have an AWD or 4WD vehicle, you may drive across the lawn and park closer to your entrance. The studio itself has no shared spaces but laundry and pool (located elsewhere) are shared. You are welcome to explore our orchards, meditation hut and stream below the studio.

Location

Papaikou, Hawaii, United States

Papaikou is an historic plantation village located across from the popular Scenic Drive. Our 100-year-old farmhouse was originally the plantation manager's house on 2 acres which now are planted in coffee, cacao, vanilla and many other lush tropical plantings and fruit trees. We are on a dead-end street in a quiet neighborhood where most of our neighbors have lived for many years. We are a short drive from Hilo where there is shopping, restaurants, tourist attractions and a great farmer's market. Headed north, we are 10 minutes from Honomu, the road to Akaka Falls. There you will find Honomu Shark's Coffee shop where our guests are invited to "Feel the Rush" and receive complimentary coffee, tea and lattes during your stay.
