Review for Gentle World Inc, Kapaau, HI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I moved to the island about 3 months after staying with the lovely folks at Gentle world. I like to believe that staying on island had a lot to do with how familial and gentle my stay was when I first arrived in Kona. Sky picked me up and told me story after story until we reached the property over an hour away! Next, I met Summer, whom I spoke with several times before arriving... and her energy was just as grounded and kind as I imagined it would be. Later I would meet Love, the writer, Meadow, the techy garden man and Light, the man who made Gentle world what it is today... The stories I heard are incredible, the energy, passion, care for life, good food and good intention is very much present in all of these people... i can sincerely say that each and every soul there was incredibly fascinating, kind, intelligent and filled with beauty and good intention. My cabin at the bottom of the gentle world property neighbored several acres of grassland w/goats and I have no complaints. It was a beautiful sight! The stars were bright, the koki frog sounds beautiful and the work/projects leave you with enough of the day to relax in the sun or to read a book under a tree, have an incredible lunch and hang out/play games with other work-traders. I was only there for one week but I felt included, cared for like family and was always learning something new... I loved my stay at Gentle World!
