In lower Puna I have wonderful friends who I have known since before I started Hedonisia Hawaii in 2004. They are now converting their beautiful property into a Agricultural Tourist Farm Community.
INTERNS, VOLUNTEERS OR GUESTS
Rustic Tiny Home Micro-Community in Hawaii for Resident Interns, Volunteers or Guests
For our first jungle tiny home, we are looking for pioneers who wish to live in rustic solitude. As an off-grid tiny home with few amenities, we are creating a peaceful private space for residents to work on Hedonisia and their own creative projects.
Eco-huts are close to Kehena Beach and other Hawaii attractions.
We are seeking long-term applicants who can use our creative space.
Kamaili Forest Farm Micro-Community will offer Guest, Intern and Volunteer programs for those who wish to do Heart, Body or Mind work to enjoy a discounted stay. It is ideal for the creative person or couple who wants to enjoy affordable solitude in Hawai.
You will have ample free time to get a job in town. Or you can enjoy your free time being an ‘eco-tourist’ in one of the most beautiful islands, Hawaii.
Based on their experience and interests, volunteers or interns can still apply to work on any of the sites in the Hedonisia Creative & EcoFeminist Entrepreneur Portfolio as part of their Mind Work. We have a wide ranging portfolio covering a range of subjects. Please indicate the website(s) that match your interests.
Hedonisia Community Director Mojo will live in Kamaili Forest Farm for part of the year. During this period, he can work with interns and volunteers.
There will always be body work whether on the land or in community maintenance chores.
Discounts apply for approved applicants who pre-pay for more than three months stay.
Hedonisia Hawaii Tiny Home Micro-Community Options:
a) Guest Stay:

One-time fee of $695 for a three to nine-month stay. An Intern is learning and wearing various hats.

An intern has a work requirement of 15 hours of heart or brain work per week plus property maintenance and upkeep.
c) Volunteer Program
Eco-Community Volunteer in Hawaii
You can be a volunteer tourist in Hawaii. A great way to reduce the cost of your stay is to enjoy a ‘volunteer working vacation’.
We live in a tropical rain forest so there’s always land work for those who want a physical workout! For those who like cleaning, we have jobs for you!
Our ‘voluntourism’ options give you the choice to volunteer different hours a week depending on your budget and how much free time you want to enjoy Hawaii!
We offer different options for those who wish to contribute more or less work in exchange for a discounted stay at Hedonisia Hawaii Solitude.
- Phase 1: Hedonisia Pioneers. December, 2020.
- Phase 2: Hedonisia Solitude Artist & Creatives Colony. March – November, 2020.
