“A place where time stands still”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

The last residents were the two famous and beloved Wilcox sisters who wanted Grove Farm to remain to remind visitors what the old days were like. The property is carefully preserved and maintained.

Reservations are required and your tour is guided by a knowledgeable docent. Take Nawiliwili Road from Kukui Grove Shopping Center toward the harbor: Grove Farm is on the left, with a rather small sign.

“great tour”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

need to call them to make reservations. so they know how many ppl are coming that day, and arrange enough guides for the tours. our guide Jenny was really sweet. i liked the tour, we visited 3 houses on the planation, and the vegetable yard. she told our all the plants. and family stories. i liked it. the last kitchen presentation was quite nice too. and there will be a little surprise for you. wont tell you what that is, go there, and you will know :)

“Fascinating tour”
Reviewed May 15, 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed the plantation tour and learning the history of the surrounding area. The $20 per person recommended donation is well worth the price. Do call for reservations. The cookies and mint tea are wonderful.
