About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
Nestled in the heart of the Big Island's oldest Volcanic Rain forest, and atop world's most active lava field, lies our luxury hideaway of rest, peace and comfort. About 2 miles from the National Park entrance.
Take a stroll thru the forested neighborhood Estates and the tropical surroundings of this serene cottage home, that is secluded in a lush native Rain forest just 24 Miles South of Hilo, Hawaii, and adjacent to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, at a 3500 feet elevation above sea level, on the slopes of Kilauea, the most active volcano on in the US. Less than 1-hour drive from Hilo to both the Cottage home & Volcano Village.
Relax and unwind … be refreshed by the cool mountain air and embraced by the giant tree ferns, ohia trees and fragrant ginger that creates a lush contrast to the primordial volcanic landscape.
Enjoy... Long wrap around Lanais, and quiet sitting areas. Awaken to the Big Island’s cacophony of chirping exotic bird’s, soft rains and the Sunlight breaking thorough the clouds.

~ Volcano Village is an outlying small township with a eclectic mix of scientists, artists and local entrepreneurs in a village-like community with a variety of restaurants, cafes, and art galleries. The village and its surrounding inhabitants blend imperceptibly into the lush Native forested landscape. The whole area has been designated by the United Nations as an International Biosphere Reserve and Historic Site.
Volcano Village - a 'World Heritage Site' with nice restaurants, galleries and only 1 mile from the unforgettable Volcanoes National Park. Our wonderful Cottage Home being adjacent to both Volcano Village & the Park, is a perfect getaway for Adventure, Romance or as a retreat getaway. Easily accessible from both Hilo and Kona airports on the Queen’s Highway 11. Driving distance from Kona Airport, with no stops, is approximately 2.5 to 3.0 hours; whereas from the Hilo Airport is approximately 45 minutes to our driveway; and another 5-minutes drive to Volcano Village proper, depending on weather conditions.
~ About the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park ~
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, established in 1916, displays the results of 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution -- processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with complex and unique ecosystems and a distinct human culture. The park encompasses diverse environments that range from sea level to the summit of the earth's most massive volcano, Mauna Loa at 13,677 feet. Kilauea, the world's most active volcano, offers scientists insights on the birth of the Hawaiian Islands and visitors views of dramatic volcanic landscapes.
Over half of the park is designated wilderness and provides unusual hiking and camping opportunities. In recognition of its outstanding natural values, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has been honored as an International Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site.
The National Park Web site provides up-to-date information on volcanic activity, safety, schedule of park lectures/presentations, tours and hiking trails.
Keywords: Beautiful! Eco-Friendly, cozy, clean, fully loaded with the comforts of home.
