Beautiful upcountry Maui. Fully contained tiny home and meal in exchange for farm work, cultural exchange, and general maintenance and improvement. Primarily mowing, weedeating, planting and care of fruit tree orchards, general gardening. 5 wool sheep on property as well.

Tiny home has living area seating as well as attached kitchen, propane stove and water heater. Bathroom is enclosed with small bathtub, shower, vanity, and composting toilet. and home has a sleeping loft. Plan is to build wrap around deck, and have material, but haven`t done it yet --perhaps a project for a helpx helper... Home is Solar Powered and is very private--not visible from any other home or our main home. It has beautiful views located on the edge of a young apple orchard, with gardening areas of it`s own as well if desired.

Host family is 3 generations living in large duplex home on property. Host is very interested in helpers sharing culture with them and their children. And would welcome opportunities for helpers to share their history around meal-time, occasionally share social gatherings, and perhaps even and cook local dishes for the family, or something similar.

One meal per day of work also included. expectation of generally 5 days of work per week, a "day" of work consisting of approximately 4 hours, which can be combined for more days free of work obligations. Helpers expected to work well independently after understanding tasks agreed on with minimal direct supervision.

Maui boasts beautiful beaches and ocean recreation, as well as hikes, waterfalls, and everything else one imagines when the word "Hawaii" comes to mind. Property is "upcountry", meaning at approximately 4000ft elevation, with sweeping views and a very pleasant climate.

At the moment, transportation options to and from the property would entail being driven by hosts when possible, or securing their own transportation. The property is a 3/4 mile walk from a highway where hitch-hiking is also feasible. Hosts are considering the limited use of an extra vehicle and helpers would have to meet all licensing requirements, but cannot at this time commit to that.
