Location, Location, Location:

Hamakua Chocolate Farm is located in Papaikou- a small village just 8 minutes north of Old Town Hilo- on the Big Island of Hawaii.  We are a great jumping off point to explore Hilo Town, the Hilo Farmers Market, numerous waterfalls, botanic gardens, tea farms/tastings, zip lines, local beaches, quaint sugar plantation villages and the Volcano National Park and its lava spectacles all along the enchanting Hamakua Coastline.


Notes on staying on our working farm

No Child Policy:  Due to this being a working farm with uneven terrain, swiftly flowing stream, suspension bridge, unfenced gulches and active farm equipment, this is not a suitable environment for kids under the age of 16.

The farm is located in a rural area within a tropical rainforest. This means that you will experience the chirping of the coqui treefrogs, as well as the sounds of our river, and morning birdsong. Each room is provided with ear-plugs…just in case nature is "too close".

The rooms are not equipped with A/C, but both have ceiling fans over the beds. In general, the climate of the Hamakua coast does not require A/C: in the daytime it is normal to have the gentle trade winds and in the evenings, the winds shift directions bringing cool mountain breezes into the farm.

As we are off-grid, please restrict hair dryer (or other heavy electrical usage) to daylight hours only.

The rooms are not equipped with TV. However, you can connect to the complimentary WiFi network and enjoy whatever you want to watch or listen to on your own devices.

And finally, please note that this is a working chocolate farm.  The ground is uneven and occasionally slippery and farm equipment is in use. You may see the occasional wild boar and geese- don't feed them!  No pets please.

Prepare for your trip

Upon confirmation we will provide you directions to the farm.  Please note that this is a working farm and that there are uneven and sometimes wet surfaces. Please bring appropriate clothing.  There will be active farm equipment and the occasional cacao cracking party located in the covered lanai during daytime hours.



Complimentary WiFi, soap, shampoo, beach towels, earplugs, also available: hair dryer and use of washer/ dryer upon request.
