Macadamia Meadows Farm Bed & Breakfast
Table Of Contents
Macadamia Meadows Farm Bed and Breakfast is for those seeking the "real" Hawaii. Our spacious country home, surrounded by our Macadamia Nut orchard, is situated on eight plus acres in the historic Kau District, on the Big Island of Hawaii. Our area boasts two unique beaches. Nearby are Papakolea [Green Sand beach]and Punalu'u [a Black Sand beach],and we're just around the corner from South Point [southern most point in the U.S.A. and believed landing sight of the first Polynesians.] Our ideally central location makes us a great home base for easy driving times to island sites. We're 45 minutes from Hawaii Volcano National Park and the Place of Refuge and exactly 1/2 way between Hilo and Kona.
We are proud to be a working farm and to have been farming pesticide free for almost 12 years now, and that truely is the "feel" of our property. However, if you would enjoy a natural farm setting and like to play a little tennis as well, we do have a great tennis court [with a couple of basketball hoops].
