Unique selling points
Says owner Michael: “If your idea of Hawaii is Waikiki, crowds, expensive activities and guided tours, this isn’t your place. But if you’d like to experience a peaceful authentic rural Hawaii setting amid beautiful exotic foliage, and do it without clothes, Hangin’ Loose is for you.”
Nearby are clothing-optional beaches, star-gazing atop Mauna Kea, waterfalls, volcanoes, steam vents, orchid farms, macadamia plantations, golf, swimming with dolphins, snorkelling with sea turtles, nude hiking and a pristine shoreline.
Michael (a musician and writer) and Jan (a retired nurse) live at Hangin’ Loose with three dogs, a cat, two parrots, numerous chickens and fish.
From $110 per night. Minimum stay of 3 nights. Discounts for longer bookings.
