Property description

Hale ‘I’iwi (pronounced “Ha-lay Eee-ee-vee”) is a cozy, 2 bedroom with 2 queen beds, an extra futon for a 5th guest as well as 2 full bathrooms. This lovely home is a newly remodeled and painted private country home with a new back porch located within the lush fern forest of Volcano Village on the Big Island of Hawai’i.

Hale ‘I’iwi is beautiful and comfortably furnished, with rooms painted warm, rich colors. Complete with television, VCR, stereo, internet/DSL, a fully equipped kitchen, a glass-front gas fireplace in the living room, washer and dryer; BBQ grill, really everything you need to feel “at home” is provided. Owned by an author and artist whose work is exhibited throughout the island, the walls are covered with block prints depicting Hawaiian mythology.

Enjoy reading from a collection of books on Hawaiiana, listening to Hawaiian music, and making your own music on the “house guitar.” Hale ‘I’iwi is just minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and a variety of fantastic hiking trails, and one mile from the Village restaurants, shops and galleries. Our backyard borders on the Kilauea Forest Reserve, home to many native bird species, and birdwatchers will delight in seeing a variety of honeycreepers. Hale ‘I’iwi sleeps five comfortably and is great for families or a romantic getaway. Come and enjoy the perfect combination of nature, comfort, privacy and convenience.

Our Big Island, Hawaii vacation rental home has all the facilities needed. Whether you’re seeking a romantic getaway, family time, or experiencing volcano adventures, enjoy all the comforts of home. Of course, all of our rentals are on their own private properties, so you don't have to share a house with any other guests.

Located just 2 miles from Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, this spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is your perfect rainforest retreat. Bamboo and hardwood floors are throughout the house. The bedrooms each have their own bathrooms and are situated on opposite ends of the house with common rooms at the center, giving two couples or a family plenty of privacy. The master bedroom is up in the canopy of the trees where you can watch native birds sip nectar from lehua blossoms right outside the window, and when the volcano is glowing, you can see the sky lit orange. The master bathroom has a large stone tiled shower big enough for two people. There are outdoor spaces to relax in the beautiful rainforest, including a large covered lanai, so even in rainy weather you can be outside, and a wood deck for when the sun is shining.

Sleeps 5 (with the 1 futon and couch)

Stay 7 nights get one night free! No charge for children ages 3 and under.
