A visit to Leilani Farm Sanctuary changes lives and hearts—yours and theirs. 

“Highlight of our trip to Maui! MUST Visit these Animals. This farm is amazing… lots of animals following us around. They all live happily on one gorgeous farm. It felt like we were on the set of Snow White. Makes me smile every time I think about this experience.” -Don
“It was such a lovely property! We felt such a strong kindness and calmness from Laurelee throughout the whole tour. It’s hard to find genuine people nowadays, and that person was this wonderful lady who has dedicated her life to rescuing animals. If we come back to Maui in the future, we will definitely come back to this sanctuary.” -Alyssa, August 2019
“This is an experience you must have when you come to Maui. You can really feel the love and effort made by everyone here to keep this sanctuary running so well. Our favorite memories will be cuddling with the chickens and walking around with Nancy the goat. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.” – Linda, August 2019
“This was a spectacular sanctuary, founded by a wonderful woman who is very passionate and knowledgeable about the work she does. I would recommend this to anyone coming to Maui, the experience was something I will never forget. Also, being able to get so close to all of the animals was something very special for me. Fun for families, couples, solo. Amazing just simply amazing. Will be coming back when in Maui.” – Rayvyn, July 2019

“Laurelee is an amazingly, kind and sweet woman! She runs the entire farm by herself (along with volunteers) and it’s very clear how much love and passion goes into every single animal. The tour was amazing. It was the perfect amount of time to have her walk us through all the different farm animals and it was such a unique experience. We were able to feed some guinea pigs, hold chickens, brush donkeys and goats… just absolutely breathtaking. Super family friendly. All around outstanding time, I HIGHLY recommend doing this.” – Kristina, July 2019
“Laurelee is brave and her Sanctuary is beautiful. It was one of my best experiences in Maui to see rescued animals living in a safe environment, surrounded by love and care.

“This was one of the best parts of my trip to Hawaii. If you’re an animal lover (or even not), I’d highly recommend it.” – Morgan, June 2019

“What a beautiful, special experience on the island of Maui. I’ve been coming to Maui for 30 years, but this was truly unique. I felt connected to the animals, nature, and the island. Would highly recommend this for any animal lovers, or families. The grounds were beautiful and the host had wonderful stories to share (plus the proceeds go toward the animals)!” – Sonja, July 2019

“This was honestly the highlight of our trip. When people ask us how our trip went, this is the first thing my daughter tells them about. It was an amazing experience, all the animals on this farm are so loved and well cared for by Laurelee. Laurelee is a fantastic person who truly cares about animals. I loved being able to cuddle a chicken, something I never thought they even liked. The goats were my favourite, they followed the group around like little children. We got to feed the guinea pig and bunnies, and we groomed the goats, deer and pigs. Thank you Laurelee for showing us around your farm, and inviting us to see all your animals. It was amazing!

It felt so lovely, joyful to be immersed in acres of plants, fruit trees, friendly rescued animals, etc, and the host made us so welcomed!” – Jacky, July 2019

“I loved every minute of this special tour. The animals were all so loved and happy. I didn’t expect to get to interact with the animals so much – held and pet a chicken, brushed the goats and donkeys, and fed the Guinea pigs and rabbits. Highlight of my trip.” – Kaly, May 2019
