    Stay in our unique enchanting waterfall house in a botanical paradise at the family run Mauna kea Cloudforest Bioreserve and Farm above the unspoiled heavenly Hamakua coastline. Just minutes from downtown Hilo, our beautiful kid friendly 2 bedroom Ohana situated in front of an amazing private waterfall with a large swimming hole and over a half mile of private riverfront nature preserve is everyone's dream. Native birds and the Hawaiian hawk make their home here in the Mauna Kea Cloudforest Bioreserve. Let the sounds of the waterfall and the fresh mountain tropical air rejuvenate you.

    You will be renting our private kid friendly waterfall house right in front of the Kikala waterfall. The Ohana is an enchanting 2-level cottage surrounded on three sides by a beautiful cloud forest and next to the Kikala stream. The tropical mountain beauty that will surround you here is unsurpassable, and the views are breathtaking. The most spectacular waterfall and swimming hole of the Kikala preserve is right in front the house, and unlike other locations, the river runs right through the middle of our farm, so we can offer you access to over 1/2 mile of private stream front with incredible vistas that rival National Parks. And most of all, on our farm, kids can be kids, there's a ton of space to run around and play, pet our goats, cuddle with our cows, and splash in the river. You will feel like you are in a remote wilderness yet you will only be 12 minutes from downtown Hilo.

    Please note that even though you have your own private space, this is a hosted rental, meaning that the host lives on the property and is available to handle any issues for you.

    Waterfall, river, nature biopreserve, petting farm with goats and sheep, fruit trees, meadows. Please note that all outdoor spaces are shared. While our waterfall is private, meaning that it's entirely surrounded by 14 acres of private pasture and cloud forest, the waterfall is not for your exclusive use, although most of the time you will have it to yourself.

    Our space is a great space for families with kids and for kid friendly travelers. You will be a guest in our private Ohana on the Mauna Kea Cloudforest Bioreserve. Since we actively maintain the biopreserve, it's very likely that you will see us around. We pride ourselves in our Aloha and we will welcome you on our farm as family. We have two children who aren't shy, and we love to host other families. Kids are most definitely welcome. ...

    The property is beautiful, and not too far from Hilo town. The house was wonderful and just as pictured in the listing

    We had a nice stay. We live on island, so the quirky directions were no surprise. Waterfall is pretty sparse right now, but host can’t control the weather, so that’s not a problem. There were some things that could make it feel much nicer such as: upkeep of flower boxes so you aren’t greeted with a bunch of dead plants as your first sight of the place; fix towel bar in bathroom so guests aren’t staring at a broken fixture when they are in bathroom; mop upper deck before guests arrive so they can walk out there without getting muddy feet. It’s the little touches that elevate a place from acceptable to stellar. This experience was good, but could be fabulous with just a bit more effort. Mahalo for having us.

    We had a great stay here. It was me, my husband, and our 15 year old daughter. We loved that the loft upstairs gave a private place for our daughter. We loved that the home was quiet and remote and away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, but yet close enough to get into town for any shopping, and close enough to get to some great cites, such as the Rainbow Falls, Botanical Gardens, and Volcanoes National Park. Everything was easy, communications were clear, and property was as described.

    After spending some time on the leeward side and the hot beaches, it was so refreshing to find this little heavenly abode in the rainforest! The farm is beautiful and the surroundings so lovely. While the kitchen is sparse with cutlery and bowls, the rest of it was nicely stocked (some olive oil, salt and pepper, condiments in the fridge, etc.) and the hosts kindly left us some fresh coffee beans to grind down. The beds were very comfortable and, really, we were there for the waterfall and the surroundings. We were very grateful to be welcomed by these hosts to this part of the Big Island. We hope one day to stay at their other places on Kauai. Mahalo!

    We loved the almost personal waterfall, takes a minute to walk over to. The outside Lanai was wonderful. The kids loved the design of the house, they got to sleep upstairs, plenty of room and beds and the parents slept in the master room down below. The kitchen worked out great. Owners were good at communicating. Only recommendations, more hand/dish soap. Also we told them about a frying pan that needed to be replaced and they said they appreciated the information. We were only there for a short time and used the last night there as our R&R before heading back to the mainland. We enjoyed our stay.
