With four guest bedrooms and a big porch, it's perfect for a romantic holiday or family retreat. Surrounded by lush gardens and towering bamboo, the hale (house) is an enchanting oasis with outdoor lanai (porches) for dining and relaxing.

A buffet-style breakfast is served each morning in the kitchen and you are welcome to enjoy your breakfast on the back or front porch or in your room or private lanai (porch). We are famous for our delicious selection of locally grown tropical fruit, including papaya, bananas, and pineapple, and specialties like french toast that we make from the farm fresh eggs laid by our chickens at the Jungle Farmhouse. Enjoy locally grown and freshly brewed coffees and teas and juices and fresh-made pastries and banana bread too. Early or late breakfast is available on request.
