Property description

Romance and enchantment combine with excitement and adventure for an enticing cocktail if you choose to stay in this little house perched up in the trees. Many of us have enduring dreams of sleeping in a treehouse, and are drawn to the intimacy of cozy spaces. Imagine yourself soaking in the fragrant cedar jacuzzi under the starry canopy, relaxing on the two levels of verandas. Sleep in the exotic bamboo bedroom, and awake to rainbows of light bathing you through the multiple stained glass windows. Throw open the French doors and sip local Hawaiian coffee on the lanai while you watch the birds of the forest flirt. This is a playhouse for grownups.


Treehouse Accommodation: Visiting a treehouse is an adventure, so staying in one is also an adventure. When booking a stay here, please keep in mind that some agility is required to hike into the treehouse through the forest, and ascend into it. To enter the top level, you will go through a trap door. The access is through the actual forest, and the house is built over top of a lavatube, in the trees.

Eco-stay Aspects: Mahinui Na Lani is treehouse designed by Roderick Romero, whose work appears in the book 'Treehouses of the World'. It is built of sustainable bamboo and recycled lumber and windows from Oahu. Power is from the sun and wind, and back up by a generator. Water is the rain that falls from the sky, that is captured onsite and stored in a catchment tank, then filtered. We provide drinking water. You shower and soak in the rainwater.

Forests of Kilauea: The location is just outside the gates to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, in a forest of giant tree ferns and towering trees. This is the same forest that you enter through the main gates of the park. Altitude is about 4000 feet. Temperatures are cool in the evenings, and damp days can also be chilly. Your explorations of the area will take you quickly to warmer and drier areas. Often there is a fine mist, called pineapple rain. One of the more fun ways to get warm (other than in the cedar hot tub) is to drive into the park and stand next to a steam vent. Volcanoes National Park has an array of extraordinary sights and adventures, including flowing lava, petroglyphs, guided tours, hiking across volcanic craters and through lava tubes, a road to the sea, and a visitor center and gallery. Volcano House, the hotel and restaurant in the park will be undergoing renovation in 2010.

Volcano Hawaii is a place unlike any other in the islands. The village of Volcano sits just outside the national park, home of the most active volcano in the world. If you want to see lava flow, chances are you can do it here. Two popular ways to view lava are by helicopter or by boat. The park offers intense and exciting hiking trails across old lava flows, through rain forests, into bird sanctuaries. Some of the best coffee in the world is grown and roasted near here, on a different part of the island than famed Kona. There is also a winery with a tasting room. If you love to golf, Volcano Golf and Country Club will challenge and reward you. Sunday mornings there is the Volcano Farmer's Market, and you can walk to it from the treehouse. Just a couple of miles down the road is Akutsuka Orchids, where you can see and purchase the orchids of Hawaii, and bring them home with you. You will notice orchids and anthuriums abound here, as they thrive in the cool moist air of Volcano

Other Activities: lava tube exploration, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, wine tasting

Golf: How often will get a chance to golf on top of a volcano? Volcano Golf and Country Club offers you that opportunity, just a few miles from the treehouse. Fee schedule: Visitor regular rate:

$70.08 + tax including cart fee

Twilight rate (after 12 noon):

$56.64 + tax including cart fee

Rental clubs:

$20.00 for 18 holes

$11.00 for 9 holes

Please check website for fee updates

Ski: Ski a volcano? Is this a joke? You won't be skiing lava, but there is snow on Mauna Kea in the winter, and there are those who helicopter ski there.
