Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath (sleeps 5)

Hale Mahina, meaning house of the moon, is conveniently located about two miles south past the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in the Volcano Golf Course and Country Club Division. It is nestled among the Ohia trees in one of the worlds most beautiful forests. Enjoy the crisp mountain air at the crest of the sunny side of Volcano.

This cozy 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is built in the Plantation Cottage style with an open floor plan.

Rooms are large, comfortable and clean, and our fully equipped kitchen allows you to cook in. Area farmers markets daily in Hilo and Sundays Open Market at Volcano offer produce at its best along with island crafts. Think fresh papaya every morning. The Volcano Winery is 539 steps away from the house where you can view the vineyards and enjoy wine tastings. If you choose not to cook in, Volcano Village has several restaurants serving lunch and dinner and there are also two small country grocery stores. ATM's are available here.

The Volcano Golf Course is a beautiful 18 hole course in the view of Mauna Loa (13,680') with the clubhouse restaurant serving breakfast and lunch.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park offers a visitors center to guide you through the vastness of this incredible National Park. Daily volcano activity is available here for day and night viewing. Tour by car or walk/hike the miles of trails while hearing the songs of the native forest birds. You will learn about our local active Volcano, Kilauea at Jagger Museum.

Sea Mountain Golf Course and Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, where you might see Green sea turtles, is a beautiful 35 minute drive. Hilo is a 45 minute drive where you will find waterfalls, shopping, beaches and Botanical Gardens.

The area also has several exceptional art galleries which shouldn't be missed.

As cocktail hour approaches, watch from your lanai as the sun sets behind Mauna Loa, while the colorful neighborhood kalij pheasants scurry to their night time nests. As the cool night air descends upon the village, snuggle up to the warmth of the gas log fire place. Do venture out after dark to see the stars on our back deck or take a hike in the park to see the latest lava activity. You certainly won't be disappointed.

About Cheryl Nathaniel

Frank is originally from Hilo Hawaii and Cheryl from Minnesota. We purchased our home in Volcano 2007 and plan to use it as a retirement retreat in the future. We love the solitude of the area.

Cheryl Nathaniel purchased this house in 2007

Why Cheryl Nathaniel chose Volcano

Frank and I have lived in HOT climates all of our 40+ years of marriage and were looking for a mild climate where a jacket can be worn. We have lived in places where high 90's or triple digit temps aren't unusual. Volcano fits the bill exactly plus as a artist/quilter I find it a perfect place to create.

What makes this house unique

The peace and quiet of Hale Mahina Cottage and having a home to entertain our family and friends while we are visiting the Big Island of Hawai'i.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a review sent via our email in regards to our cottage -she asked me to post it for her.

"What a wonderful place to stay in Volcano for a week!!!. We wished we had been at Hale Mahina Cottage for a much longer time. But we'll come back for sure. Our son from Honolulu came over for a weekend. He was - as well as we were - fascinated by the amenities, above all the electric blankets and the good working fireplace. So nice to enjoy the cool nights and a cozy breakfast room in the morning. We loved to watch the apapane in the Ohia tree while having our meals.

All rooms were very well equipped and decorated and impeccably clean. We admired the wonderful quilts giving the house a unique Hawaiian touch

Another reason for a MUST - RETURN is the location. It's so quiet and only some minutes away from the Halemaumau crator. A must-see in the evening when glowing."

Cozy and delightful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hale Mahina is a beautiful cottage in Volcano. It is impeccably maintained, very comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a perfect stay. One added treat is its proximity to the Volcano Winery, you can actually walk there for a wine tasting. We highly recommend it. We will definitely return,

A Special Place; Peaceful, Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Hale Mahina Cottage was perfect. The house is cozy, immaculate, and has everything and more that a family could need. Everything was labelled, and there was helpful information about the area to read. We enjoyed looking at the maps and the quilts that the owner made were gorgeous. My husband and I liked sitting on the front and back porch while our kids played the games that were provided. The yard is beautiful and the neighborhood is quiet. We cooked and prepared most of our meals there and the kitchen is exceptionally well stocked.

Even though the park was closed we found so much to do and stayed very active and busy.

Our family of 5 loved Hale Mahina Cottage and could have stayed longer than the six days we reserved. It is comfortable and feels like home. Our family had a special time here and will always remember this place. When we return to the Big Island one day, we would definitely stay here again.

Mahalo for everything!

A REAL GEM!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2-week vacation in Hawaii and I wanted to send you a quick THANK YOU for allowing us to use your home for a few days. Even though we were unable to visit the park, I'm so glad we didn't change our plans to stay on the volcano side of the island. Our stay in your home was, in a word, WONDERFUL! It was so charming, comfortable, cozy and had everything we needed. We especially loved all of your detailed instructions, labels, etc. Even the things we didn’t know we needed, you had. You have truly thought of everything a guest may need, and more! I’m sure you’ve heard it many times, but I want you to know that we felt your home was absolutely perfect. We enjoyed ourselves so much and we will definitely stay there again the next time we visit.

Thank you again for everything!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for staying with us. Even though the Park is closed the Volcano area is a destination spot in my opinion so was so pleased you had a good stay and experience. Do hope you will be back

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Hale Mahina is a lovely home, that’s relaxing and warm. There is so much to do in the village, despite Volcanos National Park being closed. Local restaurants are excellent and the local people are warm and welcoming.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this quiet, well equipped cottage. Spacious and very comfortable, the owner has provided everything you would need for a pleasant stay in a quiet village on Hawaii. The location is central to the southern part of Hawaii and Hilo with may attractions in between. Even though the park at Kiluea was closed (for a good reason), there was plenty of places to visit. I highly recommend this place to a quiet relaxing stay.
