You might spend the first few hours of your stay just looking at the intricacy of the stone, glass, and woodwork of this home, but don't stop there! Take advantage of the lanai, the amazing under-stairs hideaway for the kids, the lounge space with the TV, and the fast WiFi available to you in this beautiful home.

What's Nearby:
Stop in at some of the nearby attractions that include local art galleries, the Volcano Golf Course, the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, the Sunday Farmers Market at Cooper Center, and Volcano Village. A must see is Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, less than four miles away.

Or, you may wish to drive to Hilo, about 25 miles away. While in Hilo, take a helicopter tour or take advantage of the fun and historic downtown shopping district, numerous parks, and local beaches.

For adult activities, enjoy the fully equipped bar, or relax on the idyllic rear lanai. You may also want to visit Volcano Winery, just a few miles past the national park.

For unique beaches, take a drive to Punalu'u Black Sand Beach Park (32 miles away) or visit South Point and Papakōlea green sand beach (55 miles away but definitely makes for an adventuresome day).

The home is beautiful, and much bigger inside than the pictures reflect. A quiet neighborhood, that is just minutes from the volcanos park, and less than 30 minutes to Hilo. We are already planning our next trip to the big island, and will hope this house is available for our return trip.

Beautiful home.Spotless ,unique ,comfortable beds , great location for access to National park.Well appointed kitchen. Great living room for relaxing after a long hike. We’d stay there again !

A lot of research was done on Kona prior to our visit and we determined that we would be spending most of our time in the South/East part of the island with a few excursions out of Kona itself. We were two couples so this property was perfect. We loved this place the second we walked in; it was spacious, well maintained, had everything you could possibly want or need. The beds were comfortable, the linen on the bedding was like a hug after a long day of hiking and sightseeing after a nice glass of wine on the lanai of course. We also made use of the lanai in the morning for coffee. With two separate bedroom/bathroom areas for each couple we all enjoyed our personal space when needed and came together in the common areas for meals and company.
Highly recommend this property.

This place was amazing. The location is very isolated with thick foliage surrounding the house. We felt like we were all alone in the jungle. My kids loved it! The house is very spacious and well appointed. The town of Volcano is right by the national park and a short drive to Hilo. I would definitely stay in Volcano and at this house again.

Easy access to many travel destinations in particular Volcano National Park. Beautiful clean home with ample room to sleep and have space to roam. Fully functional kitchen, three full bathrooms and secluded property with native plants and animals. This is ideal for a family or a couple looking to just be one with nature.

So clean and comfortable was our stay in this great house vacation rental!

This was a wonderful home. Lovely location in the rain forest. Cooler than other places on the island, but we loves that. Close to Volcano National Park and Black Sands Beach, where we saw sea turtles! Well stocked and very clean. Safe and quiet except for the sound of rain on the roof at night and the coqui frogs singing.

The pictures don’t give justice to this piece of paradise. Very spacious and private. A perfect get-away... check in and out was super easy and everything you need . The only reason why this was not 5 star was specifically because there was a lot of cobwebs within and outside the house. The ones outside were fine but I think it was because these were not taken cared of some were starting to migrate within. They were mostly on the windows and in the skylights. A little dusting will go a long way!
Manager response:
We are glad you had an amazing stay! We have passed along your feedback to our housekeepers so they can pay closer attention to these details moving forward. We hope to host you again soon!

First time dealing with vacation rentals like Vacasa. I was not dissapointed!. The house is spacious and clean and stocked with basic necessities. For those who are worried about the fact that there is no AC, let me tell you, it was not needed. We were there in the middle of august and although it was very hot on the beaches and citties, it was not that hot in Volcano village. The humidity made it chilly, even. Enough that I started the gas fireplace one morning. Check-in was super easy. Thanks for the wonderful time!

This place was amazing. Too many details to list. Location was great, Volcano is a cool little town. Amazing woodwork, great back yard with covered lanai, great house from tip to tail.

This location was perfect for a visit to Volcano! The house was supplied very well. The experience of this house and it's location brought a feeling of peace that was very unique.

The house in the middle of an exciting area has a lot of space and a personally touch.
Christopher P. Jul 2019
Cant wait to stay again. The cabin feel with Thai twist. Spacious cabin with lots of windows and skylights!! Couldn’t see neighbors from anywhere on the property. (We live on Oahu where it’s overcrowded and property is postage stamp size so this was defiantly a perk.Convenience of everyday items in place when you need them that you don’t get in a resort!!! Fell in love!!!

The house is very clean, we love it!

The house was amazing. The perfect location for a quiet getaway.

This home is unbelievable - an architectural treasure! Secluded in the "jungle" outside Volcano Village, but only about 5 minutes to the visitors' center, you feel like you're in a world unto yourself. Exquisite furnishings, truly one-of-a-kind. The large, spacious rooms, the tranquil covered lanai, the gorgeous grounds, this home is awesome!!! Been to the Big Island many, many times over the years but have never experienced a property like this...better than any resort we've ever enjoyed!

Location was perfect, it was right outside Hilo, the house is a wonderful cabin that seems like it's set in the middle of a rainforest. It was a great space with all the amenities of a hotel. So glad I booked this rather than a hotel, my kids loved it. One great perk I should mention is the cable TV had HBO, Showtime, Starz, DVR & all the movie channels and the house had washing machine & detergent. Everything anyone would need at their own house was available. We're hoping it will be available for all future trips, it's the only place my family wants to stay.

We had a fantastic time at this rental! From the moment we arrived it was clear that a lot of thought was put into everything here. The property is unique and beautiful in a really charming and remote location. You really have everything you could need here and nothing about the house is un-intuitive; everything is fairly straightforward. It only took us a few minutes to understand most everything we needed to know. We have stayed at many vacation rentals in our travels and this is the number 1 most frustrating aspect about most of them (figuring out how the house works.) Whenever a question arose about how a device might turn on or something, there was a handy, informative p-touch label there to guide us. We were also pleased to hear back right away from the property manager about a question (we were 99% certain we knew the answer to but were just checking for confirmation.)

Furthermore, the property is very beautifully and ingeniously designed from the ground up. The space is open and feels very comfortable and feng shui.

We would recommend this rental to anyone looking to find peace and quiet comfort and good amenities in close proximity to Volcanoes and we look forward to coming back one day (hopefully during a period of more active lava flow! ;-)

This is a well-furnished comfortable home in Volcano Village, very close to Volcanoes National Park and other Puna attractions. Stylish furnishings and great architectural features make this an interesting place to stay. Just be prepared with warm clothes for your stay in the jungle. Use the fireplace here to warm up.
