Hedonisia Guava Land Hawaii Camping

Eco-Friendly Hawaii Camping Micro-Community

EcoTourists, Builders, Social Entrepreneurs, Writers, Techies, & other Creatives

The original Hedonisia property is currently not open to the public due to the roads being covered in lava from the Kilauea volcanic eruption. We are still waiting for legal road access.

Pioneer Stage

On a nearby property which we own, we have designed an open walled elevated camping spot built partly with Strawberry Guava, a fast-growing tropical hardwood that is an invasive species in Hawaii.

The open air lodgingI is located on land we own near to our volcanic property.

We still offer volunteer, intern, and guest programs. However, they are more focussed on individuals and couples enjoying a stay with more solitude than the pre-volcano Hedonisia which was much more 'touristy' and community oriented.

With our volcanic history, Hedonisia Guava Land will be a place for creative reflection, where people stay and really get to know Hawaii rather than the quick visit of a typical tourist.

As an off-grid lodging, our Hawaii camping spot has basic amenities:

  1. Drinking water is freely available from a public stand 2 miles away.
  2. Electricity will be solar chargers or power packs.
  3. Compost Toilet

Guests must have a car. Interns and volunteers may stay without a car. However, there is an additional fee of $75 a week for supply trips.
