Mango and Coffee Farm Sanctuary type properties are not available for sale often. Enjoy spectacular views of the ocean looking out over Pu’uhonua O Honaunau, City of Refuge, from this special place. It’s pretty awesome to live with perfect weather, warm waters, daily dolphin swims, seasonal whales, and sunset picnics at historical sites that absolve you of Kapu infractions. It’s kind of cool to grow your own organic food and coffee. Some people literally fantasize about living off the land and making a living as a farmer. Go figure.

20 Solar PV panels sit on a rack away from the home. They generate more electricity than is used and the extra is sold back to the grid, which takes the HELCO Bill to under $20/month. A 600 sq.ft. farmworkers dwelling with attached 20’ yurt is situated privately at the lower part of the 10.9 acres – away from the main home with the bulk of the property and orchard in between.
Self-sufficiency with solar and catchment
Other mature fruit trees are found interspersed with the mango and coffee including rambutan, noni, banana, a variety of citrus, a small test plot of U of H cacao trees, and an orchard of plumeria. This elevation is excellent for many tropical fruits and plants. The Farmworker tenants have an abundant vegetable garden.

Once you see this beautiful property, hear the birds sing, feel the sun, the breeze, and taste the fruit – you will understand why Sweet Spirit Farm is aptly named.
