Other Reservation Information:
Guests from Outside the USA & Canada
Our online booking system may not take your credit card (you will get an error when trying). Contact us if this happens (with rental you want and dates) and we'd be glad to process your reservation in another manner. Our apologies in advance for the inconvenience!
& Legal Stuff
By either booking with us and/or staying with us, you legally agree to our Friendly & Humble Policies.
If you stay 2 weeks or more, we will ask for a refundable security/damage
$150 for stays of 2 weeks+
$250 for stays of 1 month+
Sorry! To keep our rental costs down for you, we do not allow
cancellations and any payment made is non-refundable.
We welcome responsible groups that want to have the whole property to themselves! This is a wonderful atmosphere for meditation, yoga, educational travel, & more! We're more than happy to put together special packages to accommodate special needs your group may have (catered meals, outdoor shaded sitting spaces for classes, additional sleeping space, etc.). Groups reserving the whole resort will be asked for a refundable security/damage deposit (amount dependent on length of stay).
We welcome adults 21 years old and up. Responsible parents wanting to bring children may contact us for possible exceptions (contact us BEFORE booking).
What to bring? We've prepared our recommended tips of what to bring and pack for a visit.
Pricing FAQ - all your questions and more!
Do you offer any discounts (kama'aina, military, student)?
No, instead of offering special rates to specific people, we
think it is more fair to offer the lowest possible price to everyone. Our 1
week and monthly rates are already significantly reduced to reward those that
would like to stay longer with us. Depending on the circumstances, we also do our best to provide a more reasonable price for groups booking the whole resort.
Why are our prices so low?
We want to provide a nice, adventurous Hawaii experience to
those on a budget. The low prices do NOT indicate lack of quality or cleanliness! To keep overhead low, we manage and do everything ourselves from big manual labor projects, down to very tiny details (and please be patient with that). We have streamlined and almost 100% computerized our reservations and customer service, which means you are able to stay here for 1/2 to 1/3 of the cost of what it normally would be with a full time customer service staff (but you will still find our limited staff and owners to be quite personable). We hope you appreciate our efforts to keep the prices low for you!
Please also understand our eco-resort is a rustic (but comfortable)
experience and not a luxurious resort. As we say, expect something like camping
but be pleasantly surprised when it is much more!
Why do I have to pay a cleaning fee?
Being off-the-grid, we have a higher cost for normal things
like taking out the trash (we have to drive 20 miles to dump it), simple
vaccuming (we have to use our limited solar power to charge a battery), and
laundry (we have to go to town and pay to use a washer/dryer). Since we only do
these things upon your deparature, we charge a one time fee for it. If you stay
longer, this fee averages out more. Although we prefer stays longer than 1-2
nights, we will allow them as long as you understand that the full cleaning fee
still applies. This fee 100% goes to our local cleaning staff and is a special negotiated rate, lower than most Hawaii vacation rentals. We do not keep any of this fee for normal maintenance costs - that comes directly out of rental income. Of course, we have additionally given you the option of getting this fee refunded in full if you want to participate in our special Cleaning Fee Refund Program (below).
Can I get my cleaning fee refunded if I clean myself?
YES! We are trying a system to help those on a budget. With
this system, you can bring your own linens (pillow, sleeping bag, bed sheet) or
wash the ones you use. You also must pack out your own trash, vaccum your
rental, and leave everything as you found it. If all this is done
satisfactorily, we are more than happy to fully refund your cleaning fee after
your departure. For complete information, go to our Get My Cleaning Fee Back page. We are excited about offering this
option to you and hope it works to everyone's advantage! Please do not email to ask for exceptions to our normal program terms - it would be impossible for us to manage individual exceptions to the program as it is already quite difficult to manage as it is. Mahalo for your understanding!
What if I can't or don't want to book
(We can only process these types of reservations if you are booking far in advance for 3 or more nights. This is because of the increased processing and time costs involved.)
Booking online is 100% safe with our secure server
(and no one sees or keeps your credit card number). If you cannot book online, please
follow these directions for our alternative way to book:
1. Check the online availability calendar for the
rental and dates you want:
2. Click the "Book Now" button to get the total due
for your dates (nothing is charged on that page unless you enter credit card
3. If your dates and rental are available, contact us and provide:
a) Full name of all guests
b) Home address
c) Phone number to contact you
d) Dates & specific rental you request
e) Total Due that you determined after pressing
f) Method of payment you prefer (credit
card given over the phone, money order, cashier's check, or personal check (personal checks only accepted if received 2 weeks before your arrival).
g) We will contact you asap to confirm how to
send the payment and with the address to mail it to.
h) Please understand we do not hold rentals and
no rental reservation is confirmed until payment is received by us (not mailed
by you). Thus, if you are mailing a payment, we urge you to mail it 1 day or
priority through the U.S. Postal Service. We've had problems receiving mail through
other delivery services.
