IMPORTANT: Due to CARONAVIRUS and a mandate from Hawaii Mayor Kim, our Artist in Residence Program is temporarily on hold as of Monday, August 13th, 2020 until the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions pass. We apologize for any inconvenience + hope to welcome you to the Waterfarm in the future.
Puna Coast Hawaii, Coastal Farm to Table Personal Retreats
Join us at the Waterfarm, a small, organic permaculture farm for 2, 3 or 4 weeks at reduced rates for our Ohana! We are welcoming applications from friends who would like to drop into the energy of the Waterfarm for an extended stay during our August through November months. This is perfect for those who have an intention for being here in our guest sanctuary - whether it's writing a book, nourishing oneSelf with a cleanse or life meditation, or going deeper into a personal art project.
Reduced rates of:
$495/week* in our Eco-Farm Self-Contained Studio (king bed)
$565/week* in our Eco-Farm Glamping Mini-House (king bed)
$865/week* in our Eco-Farm Modern Tropical Loft (king bed)
*rates do not include Hawaii's 14.25% transient accommodation and GE tax, which will be collected in cash upon your arrival, if accepted into our residence program.
*rates include cleaning fees
All units have private baths, and rates include a weekly cleaning fee. Weekly fees also include access to organic self-harvested teas, organic greens, farm produce, farm-fresh eggs, and accepted applicants participate in a small, yet sustainable urban farm community. Enjoy edible flora farm tours, live within walking distance to Kehena black sand beach, breathe deeply in yoga classes at the Seaview hOMe studio, and experience the beauty of Hawaii now that the recent lava eruption has subsided. We are experiencing clean air again and a return of Ohana to the Kalapana area.
Availability for reduced stays if accepted into our Intentional Residence programs can be done through our Airbnb listings, which can be found from the Waterfarm website: www.seaviewwaterfarm.net. Stays at regular rates can be booked directly through Airbnb.
