Coffee & Mango Farm Sanctuary with Spectacular Ocean Views

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.

If you’re one of these people, Sweet Spirit Farm is available for sale. This 10.9 acre KSBE Leasehold farm is located in Honaunau, South Kona, the agricultural heartland of the Big Island. This is the best elevation, at 650′-750′, for mangos and Sweet Spirit Farm has a mature orchard of 120 trees comprised of 6 gourmet varieties. These are the sweetest, juiciest, most beautiful mangos in the world. Many of these varieties produce a fruit that weighs several pounds and are a deep purple color.

Property Features

Property is fully fenced and gated. The Main home is a 3 bed/2.5 bath home that was designed to take full advantage of expansive coastline views. The recently constructed, single level home is low maintenance with concrete floors. It’s easy to feel at home and entertain with the large kitchen, open floor plan, and wall of sliders to access the outdoor living area, views, and breeze. Step outside the Master Bedroom to the gorgeous outside lava rock built shower.

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.

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.
