Everything is great: location, weather, house, nature! You have to spend a couple of days, but not alone.
Jungle atmosphere all around loved the Coqui Frogs at night!
This was a great place to stay, quiet (except roosters and frogs, etc) and the fern forest was lovely. Not far from Hilo, Volcano and interesting sights (only about 30 minutes black sand beach Punaluu). The cool nights were great for sleeping. The house was comfortable, clean and spacious. The kitchen could use a sharp knife or two, and the poor outdoor lighting made getting in and out of the house and bath a bit tricky. Our family of four all slept in the main room and we did not use the separate lower bedroom at all - our little kids did not want to be so far away from parents. Overall very good and recommended!
Great location near Volcano National Park, large lenai with beautiful views of the fern forest, idea for 2
This home is comfortable and compact. Be aware that the bedroom is not inside the main part of the house. The room has it's own entrance from the outside behind the garage area downstairs and is not accessible from inside the house. It is five miles from the few shops of Volcano so if you need any supplies make sure and bring them with you. There were some shortages of knives and coffee mugs but otherwise it was warm, secure and is in a beautiful setting among the large ferns. You will be secluded in a wonderland of nature.
This lovely home is private and tranquil on the outskirts of Volcano. Clean, professionally decorated, newer construction, laundry facilities, tons of porch space, comfortable sleeping, wood-burning fireplace, and an outdoor tub to unwind while listening to the abundance of animal sounds at night. It's truly spectacular...if you can embrace the feeling of being out in the "country" with a locking driveway gate, some low water pressure issues, a running toilet, lots of stairs, and solitude. Purchase all your grocery needs outside of Volcano and arrive during daylight hours to successfully find this property, unlock gate, and retrieve house key. If you arrive after sunset, you will need a flashlight to help. My family of 4 loved it!
Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 8 days and i wouldn't of wanted it to go any other way. The instructions to check in and out we're clear and easy. The house was way beyond expectations. Everything was clean and organized. We tried really hard to find one bad thingabout the experience with the place but we couldn't. I would book it again and highly recommend to anyone considering visiting the big island. Well done!
I liked the location, a mile from the belt highway, 1/2 hour from the Hilo airport, & ten minutes away from the funky little town of Volcano & Hawaii Volcanos National Park. I loved that the house is so private & quiet. The living room is bright & sunny, the lanai is great, & the cell reception, TV, & wi-fi are excellent. I was glad that the yard is wild & not fussy. The downstairs bedroom set-up would be OK for a guy, but as a woman I chose to sleep upstairs on the queen size futon, which is very comfortable. I had to be a little creative with the lighting there, though. The wood burning fireplace & washer & dryer were real pluses.
