Property description

This architect-designed home has large rooms, high ceilings, and all the amenities of home. It is furnished with some of our cherished and unique items, and is as comfortable as it is peaceful. With high-speed wireless internet, high-def TV, and premium channels, a rainy day is pleasantly spent indoors. The quiet neighborhood is great for bird-watching, walking or biking, star gazing, and enjoying a variety of flora and fauna.

The upstairs bedroom, with a king bed, has it's own bathroom (shower only) and a reading nook. The two downstairs bedrooms share a bathroom with tub and shower.
Located just off the national park, near the Volcano Golf Course and the Volcano Winery, it is less than 5 minutes away from the park entrance and visitor center, so it is a convenient 'home away from home' from which to explore the Volcano National Park, Hilo, Akaka Falls, and much more.

At Kilauea Military Camp, located in the national park, anyone may use their bowling alley and gym, attend events in the theatre, or go to the restaurant and lounge.

With a half-dozen restaurants in the area, our guests have the option of eating different cuisines. Our kitchen is equipped with gas range, crock pot, convection/toaster oven, electric grill/griddle, coffee grinder, blender, electric water kettle, and other amenities, if you choose to cook for yourselves. We provide coffee, an assortment of teas, hot cocoa, condiments, and paper goods.

Our many previous guests speak for the house as well as we do. Some of their comments are shared here. California: 'Our family spans from 2 years old to 82 and we were all very comfortable in your beautiful home.' France and Belgium: 'We've visited the area before, but this place really makes us want to come back.' London: 'The bed upstairs is the most comfortable we've slept in in 4 weeks of travels!' Seattle and Oklahoma City: 'So special to have a 'home' on the Big Island. 3X and more to come.' 'Absolutely fantastic! What a great house and yard. I'd love to live here full-time.' Pennsylvania: 'Hospitality with grace and generosity, beautiful surroundings--we could not have asked for anything more at the Hale Koa Nani.' California: 'We've been coming to the volcano for many years and this is, by far, the nicest place we've found. It's a beautifully decorated and comfortable place to stay while exploring the park.' Kaneohe, Hawai'i: 'The best B&B we've ever stayed in. Thanks for your attention to every detail.' Honolulu: 'The beauty of this home is only surpassed by it's serenity. The warmth of the fire as the sun streamed through the yard...This place will forever remain in our hearts and minds.' California: 'I want to sell everything I own and move into this house.' American Samoa: 'Mahalo Nui for the beautiful and peaceful place. It feels like home.' Ohio: 'We are frequent visitors to this amazing and spiritual island, and this home is by far the best place we have ever stayed.'

Keywords: This is a custom-built house, beautifully furnished, located on the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, surrounded by tall native koa and ohi'a trees.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: Amy (originally from Honolulu), and Joe (from Arizona), are both self-employed in Kona, and have lived on the Big Island for many years. In 2003, we purchased this house for our retirement in a few more years. In the meantime, we enjoy our occasional visits to the house, hosting family and friends, and the constant improvements we make to our future home.

Why Volcano:
Amy's family vacationed regularly in Volcano, not far from this house, so from childhood I have had a love and appreciation of the area, the climate and the park. This part of Volcano is considered the 'dry side', so there are many more days each year when one can enjoy being outside.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the 'quiet' of the house, waking only to the sound of birds--no traffic, no noisy neighbors. Our back yard adjoins a ranch, giving the feel of tremendous space to our property. The community of Volcano is very friendly, and reminds us of how life was when we were growing up in the 1950's--people knew their neighbors, and participated in local events. Check out the Sunday market at the Cooper Center on Wright road, but go early!! You'll find produce, flowers, prepared foods, baked goods, arts & crafts, and conviviality.
