The Experience

Aloha! We are committed to keeping the jungle back and food resources growing here at Laupahoehoe!!! Keeping the vines from overtaking the fruit trees is a big job, and they deserve it! Bananas, avocados, mountain apples, oranges, grapefruit, coconuts, starfruit, cacao and mangosteen, all full size and fruiting well when in season. Lots of coffee, lilikoi vines, taro and wild spinach. I can take you kayaking and hiking, also a weekly market.

I had an amazing experience with Matt, he is the nicest guy in the world, I totally live the Laupahoehoe life like a local. It’s a simple place and life but with so much love, respect and peace. You have to sleep in a tent that is in the forest and the bathroom is 1 minutes walking. I felt really safe and comfortable. Matt is really easy going and he taught me a lot about be more sustainable. Mahalo for everyone in the farm!
