Where do I start…. even without the personal touch of Kaye and her family, I maintain a 5 star. I stayed with my 2 daughters for 2 months, its was very difficult to leave. I'll start with the rental. A beautifully restored, 2 bedroom basement suite equipped with many extras - it already feels like home right when you walk in. The heart warming history behind this property is cause enough to check it out, as it successfully reflects the owner (Kaye's vision). The property is located in a forested area with clearings for large properties. This farm is tendered with native plant Hawaiian expertise, organically focused with TCL. Kaye thoughtfully offers a basket of fresh produce and eggs as a welcome gift. The suite and gazebo (with Japanese hot tub) is nicely shaded keeping the unit nice and cool while the open areas on the property offer beautiful sunshine from 8am on. The neighbour is peaceful and enjoyable to walk, locals wave as they drive by. Biche the pig, she's a rescued wild boar who loves her guests (especially their table scraps). The critters here are very aloha, much like their people. I won't give away all of the perks as there must be some element of surprise. Kaye and her family are delightful, Kaye aught to write a book about good hosting, as she has a very good understanding of what folks want and need. IF you have any questions regarding Hawaiian culture, highlight spots, agriculture, and healthy lifestyles - Kaye has the answers. The location of the property on the island is absolutely ideal. Up from the Hamakua Coastline, Keolamauloa is situated right between Hilo and Waimea, and 10 minutes from Honaka'a (a must go to place with trendy shopping, amazing food, a sweet movie theatre, groceries and the famous Malasadas (Portuguese donuts - OMG). Did I mention that her rental price is another perk? You cannot find a gem like this anywhere, I guarantee it.

We had a truly wonderful experience at Keolamauloa. We were lucky enough to stay for 10 days and used the farm as both a peaceful retreat and as a base for excursions all over the island. Kaye, her family, and the family pets all made us feel very welcome and at home - we wish we could have spent more time with them. The location of the farm is absolutely stunning - halfway up the slopes of Mauna Kea with ocean views, farmland and forest all around, and, for us, was perfect. (If you want to be in the thick of things on the same bland resort as everyone else, this is not the place for you.) The apartment is very comfortable, well appointed, and equipped with just about everything you could think of or need. We enjoyed cooking and eating at home, and made sure to utilise the indoor and outdoor spaces. There's no "pool" but there's a fantastic swimming pond (and a hot tub), and there's no "gym" or "fitness center" - but Kaye's granddaughter has a brilliant tree platform/fort that my husband was able to swing around on and get his exercise fix (that, plus running up and down the country roads, through the forest and up the volcano). The fresh vegetables and eggs from the farm were delicious and it was wonderful to be welcomed by such a bountiful basket of goodies (they were so good we had to buy more after we polished them off). We feel very lucky to have found this place and can't recommend it highly enough. If we make it back to Hawaii some day, we will certainly be doing everything we can to stay here again!

My husband and I have taken several vacations in Hawaii and have stayed in many different places, from huge beachfront hotels to small cottages in rural areas. Our stay at Keolamauloa last week was by far the best place we've ever stayed. As described below, this is due to both the incredible accommodations and the even more incredible family (Kaye, in particular) that owns the farm. The description and pictures of the farm on the website are extremely accurate; the apartment is beautifully appointed and decorated, while also being extremely clean and organized. Unlike many other places we've stayed, this place truly feels like a home. And the reason is because it is someone's home! Although entirely separate from the owner's living area upstairs, the apartment feels like part of the home. The books and records have been collected over many years, and the board games used to belong to Kaye's children. Also, although the house was built in the 1930's, it's been updated with modern amenities, including a small but easy-to-cook-in kitchen, and a beautifully updated bathroom. And throughout the apartment are artworks done by members of Kaye's family, which are beautiful and thoughtful touches. The farm itself, consisting of a very charismatic pig, numerous chickens, a rabbit, and several cats and dogs, is so charming. We loved just strolling around the property and soaking it all in. We also loved eating everything that came in the welcoming garden gift basket left at our doorstep by Kaye; it consisted of fresh eggs, lettuce, carrots, and more. It was so delicious! Overall, this farmstay was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. Our stay was incredibly relaxing, while also interesting and educational because we were able to learn so much about Hawai'i from Kaye. Her knowledge of Hawai'i history and its native plants was simply fascinating. Based on our experience and reading prior reviews, we are confident that you will get exactly what you want to get out of your stay at Keolamauloa. If you're looking for a relaxing, unique, and authentic Big Island farm experience, this is the place for you!

If you want to get away from the commercial touristic experience of Hawaii this is the place to stay at. The small organic farm is own an operated by Kaye Lundburg and her daughter Sally and son in-law Keith. Kaye and her family members are extremely kind and welcoming. They also have a wealth of knowledge of the history and culture of Hawaii and are more then enthusiastic to share this information. The two-bedroom rental is charming and fully functional with full kitchen, outside BBQ and Hot tub! The farm site is beautiful and well kept. This place will give you a sense of the local life style, making you feel at home and never wanting to leave. You will need a car to get around and expect a 50 minutes drive to the northwest cost beaches. I have stayed twice at the Keolamauloa farm and my wife and I cant wait to come back.

Our family of 6 stayed here 8 nights after spending 1 week at the Hilton Waikoloa and everyone agreed that it was the highlight of our trip. The area, in our opinion, is the most beautiful part of Hawaii with the waterfalls, Waipio valley, and the lush landscape. Staying at the farmhouse was a special and unique experience for our whole family. If you want to truly get away and connect as a family while experiencing real life in Hawaii on a small organic farm, then this is the place! We all learned so much about Hawaii, native plants, and the history of the farm from our gracious hosts Kaye, Sally, and Kieth. Our 8 and 10 year old daughters loved playing with Kia'i (Kaye's granddaughter) on the zip line, playhouse, in the pond, and with all of the animals. We felt so at home here that it was hard to leave on our last day! We are grateful for our stay at Keolamauloa and for the opportunity to get to know the people that live there! One more tip...Red Water Cafe was our family's favorite restaurant that we ate at during our 2 week visit to the island, it is in nearby Waimea.
