About the property

Cute little cottage nestled in the rainforest, outside Volcanoes National Park

You will love our cozy little home, snuggled in the beautiful Ohia forest. We are just down the road from the Village with its restaurants and Sunday Farmers Market, & 5 minutes from Volcanoes National Park.

Puolani Iki gives you just enough room to settle in and recover from your day hiking and exploring the east side of the Big Island. With a comfy living room/full kitchen, master bedroom, and spacious bath, this little house provides everything you need for a few nights in the rainforest!

The master bedroom has one very comfortable king size bed with memory foam topper, and the couch in the living room can comfortably accomodate a child or adult under 6' tall. Extra linens and plenty of blankets are provided.

We pride ourselves on thinking of the details and giving you something just a little extra, but if you are looking for 5-star luxury accommodations, this probably isn’t the place for you. If you want your own adorable, private cottage nestled into the rainforest, we would love to have you stay with us!

If you are bringing a little one with you, please let us know so we can provide a pack and play and high chair - we want your stay to be amazing AND relaxing!

Some features of Puolani Iki:

• House is situated on the lot to provide maximum privacy

• Ample Parking

• Flashlights for nighttime exploring

• Guidebooks, magazines, and various other reading material

• Board games (be a kid again!)

• Outlets (3-prong and USB)

• Full size range, oven, and refrigerator/freezer

• Cooking basics including coffee, tea, sugar, pancake mix, farm fresh local eggs when available, pasta and rice, oil and vinegar, water, sweet treats, and a welcome bottle of wine.

• Drop and percolator coffee makers and tea kettle

• King size bed with clean linens

• HD TV with Apple TV and streaming services

• Wifi internet connection

• Spacious bathroom with tub and shower

• Toiletries, including shampoo/conditioner, sunscreen and lotion

• Bath and beach towels

• Wave board, umbrella, and cooler for your beach day

• Safe for your valuables

You will have your own key and have the whole place to yourself. Your own Hawaiian paradise.


We live in Volcano and would love to welcome you to your new home. Our past interaction with guests has ranged from sharing dinner and wine, to hardly seeing them at all! Wherever you fall on the spectrum, if you need anything during your stay, we're just a phone call or text away.


Pualani Iki is located in a quiet neighborhood 35 minutes from Hilo and about 2 hours from Kona.

Just across the highway and up the road is Volcano Village where you will find several restaurants, a community center, Volcano Art Gallery, and the wonderful early morning Sunday Volcano Farmers Market. 5 minutes up Highway 11 is the entrance to Volcanoes National Park and the bubbling Kilauea Crater.


This is a big island and a rental car is required to get the most out of your experience.


There are some small, convenience-style stores in Volcano. We do have a nice selection of cooking basics offered free of charge. Please ask us if you need a complete list.

We welcome everyone and would love to have you stay with us!

This is our new listing, but please check out the reviews for our other properties to see the style and quality of experience we provide.

Looking for something slightly larger? Please see our other rental property, Hau‘oli Place (the Happy Place!) which comfortably sleeps 4.

Want to try out a tiny house? We also own Hale Iki (a tiny house in Volcano!).

*We pay our taxes! You will receive a line itemized invoiced upon checkin. Mahalo!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little cabin in the jungle. It is very convenient to Volcanoes National Park. You have everything you need to cook, but it is a quick drive to restaurants. We had lots of privacy. We were greeted with a plate of wonderful chocolate macadamia cookies and a bottle of wine. Amazing deal for the price. Note that there is very little in the way of grocery stores in the area, so stock up if you want to do much cooking. Coffee, pancake mix, salt, pepper, olive oil and two local eggs are provided. As expected in a National Park area restaurant prices are on the high side.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 9-year-old son and I stayed here a few nights to see the sights nearby. We had everything we needed (and more), and the owners were quick to reply with any questions. The neighbourhood was quiet, and great for accessing the park. Wifi worked flawlessly. We would stay again.

Cozy Stay in Volcano!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family at this location in Volcano for three nights. We had such a busy itinerary and whether we were coming back from snorkeling, biking, or sweaty hikes through the lava fields - this place was a comfort to come home to. It met every need we had and greatly exceeded our expectations- so much so that I took an extra business card to pass out to some traveling friends! Enjoy your stay!

Its a beautiful small house with everything we need. House is super clean. Near of the national volcano park. Host are very available to answer quickly to the message. We have a heartwarming welcome and it was over what we were expecting. A lot information are in the house in a binder. Great organisation and helpful for shopping or eat.

We recommande this house for sure.

Thank you so much for the stay.
