An Eco-Vacation Rental in the Forest up in the Trees...

Are there still some adventurous, Huck Finn type sparks alive in you? Then turn up your Jurassic Big Island experience another notch by staying in this unique, hand-made, GENUINE treehouse built 20 ft. up into 5 living, native Hawaiian ohia trees.

Look down onto the reaching fronds of amazing hapu'us (giant tree ferns) from huge windows and lanais all around, providing 360-degree birds-eye views of this secure, private 4 acre paradise. Witness the thrills of nature's interactions while nestled in homey comforts, including full-kitchen and bath, TV/DVD, music and more to modernize your Swiss Family Robinson experience.

Fall asleep while star-viewing from your comfy bed perched high up in the spacious loft. Some nights, even the volcano's red glow is visible.

A real-deal treehouse... located between two active volcanic vents... in Hawaii... you might never want to leave! But Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the charming artist colony of Volcano Village are nearby if you do.

Huck Finn says: For the creative, environmentally sensitive types, not the fussy. This truly 'green' structure was intentionally built in the most non-invasive manner, using high grade building wood and reconditioned windows, doors, and most everything else (including the 'kitchen sink!') And after 6 years of testing by various forces of nature, it's structural integrity has been proven to be sound and solid. And the trees are happy, too.

About 7 miles away is the Volcano Golf club

The Treehouse is near the Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park, where you can view the glowing crater, it's about 7 minutes away. Also Kalapana, where the lava has been entering the ocean is a 40 minute drive. Hilo is where all the water sports are also the movies and museums and is about 30 minutes away. Another fun event is exploring old lava tubes, with a guide if you like.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Skye is a master treehouse builder in Hawaii. He lives on property adjacent to this genuine (full house in the trees) TreeHouse. Years of effort, energy and artistry went into the design and construction of each unique treehouse. He comes from the east coast, Pa. Md and N.J. and traveled thru out the US for many years and eventually landed in Hawaii in 1980. Which was home base for years of international travels until settling down in Volcano Village in the late 80's and starting his new enthusiasm of TreeHouse building out of recycled materials creating his beautiful master pieces, which became his future homes. One never knows where they will end up if they just follow your hearts is a life lesson he learned and lived.

Why the Owner Chose Royal Hawaiian Estates (Volcano, HI, USA):
I'm now sharing what was my private home on secluded 4 acres of Hawaiian rainforest for many years, with others that have been bitten by the TreeHouse bug like I was.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
- A genuine treehouse (take sleeping in a real TreeHouse it off your bucket list!!) - Right down the road from the craters and red hot lava in Kilauea Volcano at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park -- active with lava flows since 1983. - Comfortably living in the treetops of Hawaiian Rainforest with dry, warm indoor viewing thru giant windows and outdoor decks at the same level weaving 80 feet out thru the existing trees.
