Volcano cottage description

'Volcano Hale Mauka' Is your own private(non-smoking) Hawiian Plantation style rainforest cottage nestled within the Ohia and ancient GIANT Hapu'u fern trees. Beautiful 10 foot cedar tongue and groove ceilings through-out the cottage. Large windows in every room allow beautiful rainforest veiws. Sit outside with a cup of Kona coffee on our beautiful lanai and listen to song birds welcome you here. This house is located 1.5 miles from the famous Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You are a step away from the many wonders it has to offer. View Lava flowing into the sea! A chance in a life time! Hike through the caldera and explore lava tubes.

There is a nice golf course within 5 miles. No need for golf clubs, Hale Mauka has them. The bicycles that are here are yours to ride to the village nearby. Volcano Village is an artist community and there are art galleries to explore. On Sunday, the Farmers Market near the village is a fun place to check out. You can pick up fresh grown veggies for your stay.

You will love cooking in this fully equipt kitchen! The cottage is set up on a whole house water filter rainwater system, which provides the best drinking water ever! You will even shower and wash your cloths in filtered rainwater.
There are restaurants in the Village that offer fine dining. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park 'Volcano House' offer tables that have views the caldera of Kilauea below.

Hale Mauka comes with Kayaks to explore Hilo Bay or head towards Kona and Kayak with dolphins. There are masks and snorkels and boggie boards to use to see the wonders of life under the sea. Richarson beach in Hilo has a great beach for laying around on the sand and swimming with turtles. There is a fishing pole to use to fish nearby. No fishing licence required here. The famous Black Sands Beach is only 25 minutes away from Hale Mauka. You might want to drive to the top of Mauna Kea (4-wheel drive required) to an elevation of almost 14,000 feet or check out Mauna Loa. They both have observatories, what a view!

Come home to soak and relax with a glass of wine in the 100 gallon Japanese style soaking tub while gazing out into your own private Rainforest. This bathroom offers a seperate shower also.

Did I mention, A kingsize tempur-pedic mattress that will lull you away for the best sleep ever.

There is so much to do on the Big Island! Your stay here at 'Volcano Hale Mauka' has it all for a wonderful adventure on the Big Island.
It's like having your own private cottage in the rainforest! We give you the privacy you deserve but we are always available to help and answer your questions. Come to Volcano Hale Mauka and ENJOY!! Everything in and at Hale Mauka is top of the line..

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: In 2004 we retired and moved to Hawaii to build our dream cottage. We found this amazing property in the rainforest of Volcano. We created a private drive into the property so that we could build our cottage right in the middle of the huge fern trees. This is the only dwelling on this property and is very private. You can not see any other house from the inside of the house or sitting out on the lanai. Every detail was thought out while we built Hale Mauka, from the deep soaking tub with a rainforest view to large windows in every room. Hale Mauka was built with love and creativity. We love sharing our home with guest from around the world! Welcome to our Hale Mauka.. We hope you enjoy our Hale as we do.. We are now building a second home in South Kona..
