- What is the weather like on the Big Island?
- Is the Kimos’ Ohanas eco-friendly?
- What do others have to say about Kimos' Ohana
That usually depends where you happen to be at any given time. The island of Hawaii has 11 of the 13 climatic zones in the world. Almost any weather is possible; you can be in brilliant sunshine, pouring rain, snow, or desert-dry all in the same day! During the winter it is possible to experience a 60F degree temperature change when driving from the summit of Mauna Kea to Hilo. The Puna district where the Kimos’ Ohanas is located is tropical rainforest.
Air quality standards for the world is set on the eastern point of the island, near kapoho, which gives high quality drinking water, even the water out of the shower is purified and drinkable!
Yes, we are very eco-friendly. We try to be as sustainable as possible by utilizing 100% rain water catchment for our entire household and gardening needs; by augmenting our hot water supply using solar panels; by recycling and reusing; and by doing on-site composting which supplies soil for all of our planting needs.
Food used for our breakfasts is either grown organically on our property or purchased at local farmer’s markets and natural food stores. We are planning on going to photovotiac in the future.
