"The east side of the Big Island is alternately stark and volcanic or wet, musty, and full of foliage -- in short, otherworldly. This lovely retreat, located minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and ensconced by lush fern forest, fits right in.
As mentioned before, the house is not visible until you leave your car. Once you arrive, however, you will find all the trappings of home -- towels and beach supplies, a gas grill, games and books galore, kitchen supplies, extra linens of all kinds, television and WiFi, and a unique, private bathhouse that is yours to enjoy.
The location could not be more perfect for exploring the park (you will be able to get in early or late at night for optimal viewing). The home was obviously built with care and attention and feels very homey. It will get wet in Volcano, so take advantage of the provided umbrella!
Be aware that (like most of this part of the island) this property is on catchment water. The hosts thoughtfully have a separate filtering system for your drinking and cooking needs as well as a water cooler. This was not an issue for our family at all."

VERY COMFORTABLE & CONVENIENT TO HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK
"We appreciated Becky sharing her home with us! It was truly a "home away from home". We were able to do so much at HVNP because we were only 4 miles away. We did all the Day Hikes that the NP recommends and some extras. We enjoyed the Kilauea Iki Trail the most, including the Lava Tube. The most challenging was the Hilina Pali Trail to Ka'aha. It was easy to see the glowing caldera in the Kilauea Crater at night with such a short trip back to "home".
The kitchen is large and easy to use, so much storage area. We enjoyed the grill and having a washer & dryer convenient to use. The rooms are all separate enough to accommodate other couples or two or more families (four separate bedrooms). Everything worked out very well! We'd stay here again and recommend it to others!"

"Jim and I stayed 5 nights in this beautiful bungalow at the edge of the village of Volcano. Wonderfully designed and situated in the trees with lanai to catch every breeze, little stoves to heat the cool evenings. We loved ending our days roaming lava beds at nearby Volcano National Park ten minutes away with a soak in the big jacuzzi. In the morning the Apanani birds sang us awake. The whole place was clean and elegantly appointed. It's quiet and secluded but close to places to eat. We loved Thai Thai and went there twice. We also cooked in the well supplied kitchen. It was the perfect place for us. Mahalo, Joyce!"
