From Responsible Travel:

Big Island Eco Resort, Hawaii

Off grid accommodation on a three acre property on Big Island - shady ohia trees, ocean views, private areas for each rental, with hammock, picnic table, or swing. They offer a beautifully decorated yurt and several renovated Volkswagen camper buses as sleeping accommodation.

Creative eco-solutions include a solar (PV) electrical system that is mounted and run from an old VW bus and a water catchment system that catches rainwater and circulates it back to shower and sinks. They strongly support Malama Punaluu, an organization set up to conserve the natural environment and protect the Kau district from development.
