Singers will stay together in groups of two to five, in lovely rental homes.  One home (Mahana House) has four single suites with private bathrooms and one twin bedroom; Mahana House can accommodate six guests, and can often support early arrivals and late departures. This is a first come-first served opportunity. Other homes will be located in Hilo near the water, or other homes close to the farm.  (It is about a 20-30 minute ride to the farm from town)  Singers who stay in Hilo will have easy access to shopping, restaurants, the airport, and swimming.

NOTE: HILO AIRPORT is the airport we recommend. 
KOA or KONA airport is on the other side of the island and would require a rental car.

We will arrange pick-up from the Hilo airport and bring you to your rental home. Please be sure Margie knows your travel plans at least one month before the workshop begins. Singers will share the expense of a rental car with other workshop participants staying in the same home. Estimated cost is approx. $100. per singer. Contact Margie if you have any questions about ground transportation.

We will provide beautiful farm lunches with local organic ingredients as well as two dinners prepared by local chefs.  Breakfast and 6 dinners will be on your own.  A day trip to the volcano, swimming at a local beach as well as visits from Hawaiian artists and cultural practitioners will open our senses to feel where we are and the power of the natural elements on this Big Island of Hawaii.

Singers should stop at the market on the way in for groceries for breakfast.  The six dinners beyond the welcome dinner and closing dinner will be the choice of each singer.  Some people prefer to eat at home (all houses have full kitchen options) and some prefer to go out to local restaurants and enjoy local cuisine.
 We offer these option to reduce your overall cost.
