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...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

If you are traveling to the Hamakua Coast, or going to check out the awe-inspiring Waipio Valley, be sure to stay at Keolamaulao farmstay.

This was the most relaxing place I have ever been in my life. A beautiful small working farm (5 acres) with gardens, a small pond, chickens, and a pig. The owner rents out the first floor of her house as a guest house. You get two bedrooms, bath, kitchen, living room, laundry, and outdoor hot tub. I can't say enough...

A group of family and friends traveled from Osaka, Japan to stay at Keolamauloa for 8 nights. We arrived first as two mamas with our 1 1/2 year old toddlers, and then were joined by one of our husbands. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep very comfortably. Kaye even provided a crib, as requested, for...

I just want to warn people about this staggering waste of money. The "farmstead" is actually a front consisting of 1 pig, 2 goats, some chickens, and some rabbits, all spanning an area of about 100 square meters. What is actually bred here in abundance are fleas, ticks, and chiggers, which we encountered plenty of, in this "journey back to...

“Kaye provides a basket of fresh produce, but you should shop for things like milk and cereal, plus dinner items before you arrive. There are a couple of great grocery stores in town. I recommend the local grass-fed beef.”
