Sitting atop spectacular 400-foot cliffs overlooking beautiful Waipio Bay, Pali-O-Waipio Farmlet is a one-of-a-kind, very well-maintained, healthy landscape. Angela Kepler (botanist, ornithologist, author of 18 natural history books) works very hard to maintain a high degree of self-sufficiency year-round, despite its windward location. There is always a bounty of flowering plants, bromeliads, heliconias, seasonal fruits … and stunning ocean views bordered by native plants.
The property is domestic, pesticide-free and includes the following features:
140 fruit trees both common & unusual, 30 edible varieties of bananas, plus attractive ornamentals ,including the largest collection of Hawaiian traditional bananas in the world (Angela is the foremost international authority on Hawaiian bananas). The property also includes, a mini-coffee plantation (17 plants), vanilla orchid vines, black pepper vines, a pineapple patch, several vegetable gardens (~ 30 different veggies), herbs, including cardamom, curry leaf, Thai ginger, 60-something ducks and chickens, an ornamental pond with tilapia and waterscape plants and a homemade compost area. Is that enough to keep you busy?
What to bring: Camera & Lunch (enjoy a picnic overlooking the bay) if you wish
