Recent Volcano property reviews

  • We loved it.

    "My husband and I spent a week in this wonderful, lovely, and quiet private home. The house is very spacious yet cozy. The fireplace is a great plus. We used it as a base to explore the Volcano National Park, Puna, and Hilo. The owner, Vicki, was very helpful and warm. She also gave us a tour to the Volcano Observation Laboratory which was extremely interesting. We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend this place as a home away from home on the Big Island."

  • Perfectly Wonderful!

    "Pele's Secret Garden could not have been more perfectly suited for this year's stay on the Big Island. Read all the previous reviews, as I did, and believe all the positives. We could not have been more pleased. This is a private, comfortable, and inviting place to stay. We are happy that we were able to spend an entire week. The charming little town of Volcano has cute restaurants, small food marts, and cute gift shops. Great location to see the Volcano, of course, but we also did the hike to Green Sands Beach, Black Sand Beach, Champagne Ponds, wine Tasting at the local vineyard, and so much more. Peggy, the owner, was delightful, and should give lessons on how to make guests feel welcome. Highly recommend!"

  • Wonderful volcano vacation rental, accomodating owner

    "There are so many properties to choose from yet the owner LInda was so accomodating and gave us a deal we couldn't refuse. The property is very nice, I loved the gas stove! The backyard is beautiful going into a forest and the bedrooms were very tastefully decorated. The beds were very comfortable. I would highly recommend this property and am hopeful that we will stay again when visiting the Hawaii National Volcanoes park."

  • Our home in Hilo

    "I think there are probably a lot of nice places to stay around Hilo, but we don't have any interest in finding them. Hale Hapu'U is where we stay in Hilo. Period. Having spent three nights there, we felt SOOO comfortable. It took us a full day to stop yammering to each other about how awesome the place is and just start enjoying it. Cosmetically, it's really nice to look at. Plenty of natural wood, koa, bamboo, etc. Granite counter tops. Nicely lit; good control of the lighting, etc. Seating options are plentiful and comfortable. The kitchen is well provisioned should you decide to do some cooking. Showers are amazing - with glass exterior walls (don't worry, they're frosted, and the grounds are private) so you can almost feel like you're outside. The forset room, which we also rented, is on the opposite side of the place from the other bedroom making it ideal for privacy. But the best (and most central) feature is the 360 degree fireplace. We built a fire one evening and enjoyed the warmth and glow all evening. The grounds are quite private and quiet; nice for enjoying the hot tub in the evening, and for sleeping. Krish took excellent care of us. His attention to detail is awesome. Little things, like putting clear instructions for using the WiFi in the drawer under the modem on the kitchen counter. Everything was like that. There was fruit and danish for us to eat upon arrival. Coffee for the morning. The hot tub was clean and set to go. The place was so clean; we later found out that Krish had stopped by before we got there, and cleaned it again because he wasn't satisfied with how clean it already was! Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to spend there."

Volcano Travel Tips

Discover Dramatic Landscapes During Your Stay at Volcano Vacation Rentals

If you like nature's amazing displays, Volcano vacation rentals will provide just enough balance between the world's most active volcano, Kilauea, and the serenity of Volcano Village. Located five minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, vacation rentals offer homes with multiple rooms and home-like amenities. The park is a World Heritage Site and an International Biosphere Reserve, offering you the chance to explore volcanic areas like the Thurston Lava Tube. At Halema'uma'u Crater you can see an ash plume, and on the Big Island, you can watch lava erupt and flow into the sea or spend an afternoon hiking the highland rainforest.

Get More With Volcano Vacation Houses

There are many ways in which volcano vacation houses offer you more than you get at a hotel. You get privacy, more space, a furnished house, and a fully equipped kitchen. Some properties offer luxury features like forest-side spas and outdoor showers. Enjoy a hot cup of Hawaiian coffee and fresh tropical fruit in the lanai before heading out for a day of fun. Located on the Big Island of Hawaii, Volcano Village is an area surrounded by volcano mist, orchids, and tree ferns. If you want to learn about the lush vegetation, you'll find the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden 30 minutes away.

Explore Hawaii From Puna District Beach Rentals

While the volcano is a popular attraction, Puna District beach rentals place you near other attractions and activities. Enjoy a location just steps away from the water. Spend a day snorkeling in the Waiopae Tide Pool. If you want to watch lava pour into the ocean but you prefer to stay away from the summit of Kilauea, consider a boat tour. You'll enjoy swaying on the waves of the Pacific Ocean while watching something you won't see at home, and you might see dolphins or whales.
