Some comments from recent guests-

'i enjoyed my stay at 'hale sweet hale' very much.

the house is a well appointed two bedroom,nestled

in the jungle. the peace and solitude it offers are wonderful,

yet it's just minutes from the volcano. i especially enjoyed reading out on the back lanai looking out over the lawn to the jungle.

''There is no small detail you did not provide for. Thank you for sharing you idyllic hideaway. I especially enjoyed the orchids in the trees.'

“After a long trip halfway around the world, we could have had no better place to relax.

Everything was more than we could have hoped for. We were greeted with a warm welcome message and fresh supplies of everything we needed to feel right at home.

If you are in need of a true 'get away from it' without being too far away from creature comforts, this is the place to stay.”

'Hale Sweet Hale is truly a haven in the rainforest! Love the smell of the cedar, and the skylights make this place truly airy and bright.'

“It was so convenient for our visit to Kilauea National Park, being only 5 minutes from the entrance. We enjoyed the quiet and peaceful setting, surrounded by lush green ferns and lovely hydrangeas. It seemed so removed from everything, but it was just a short distance from the main highway. The cottage was so sweet and beautiful, and comfortable. We just loved it! We definitely would like to go back and stay for a longer period of time to experience more of this peaceful retreat.”

Why Merlenna Higby chose Volcano Village

We fell in love with Hawaii 40 years ago and always wanted our own little piece of paradise. We found Hale Sweet Hale and made it our own. Always traveling in Hawaii, we discovered things and features that characterized "Living in Paradise" and included them in the house so all of our guests would leave with the Spirit of Aloha in their hearts.

What makes this cabin unique

Staying at Hale Sweet Hale or Aloha Sweet Hale captures paradise that is unforgettable and distinctively the best in Volcano Village.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Excellent place to stay near the volcano.

The place is quiet and comfortable and equipped with everything we need. It was very close to the volcanic park so.we were able to went star gazing after early dinner.

On the doorstep of the National Park

  • 5 of 5

What a great location for our visit to Hawaii and Volcanoes National Park. Literally just across the highway. Beautiful, secluded, and comfortable. We hiked and enjoyed the park for three days and then used Hale Sweet Hale as a base for road trips; one through the South Point area and one into the Waipio Valley. Close enough to Hilo for dinner or groceries. It was nice to have laundry facilities in the house and we really enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the birds each morning. The cool nights made for great sleeping. Would definitely stay again.

Cozy cabin in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

This sweet cabin was just what our little group of three needed. Clean and tidy. Soothing and tranquil in that wonderful jungle. It was cool on these winter days but there was plenty of wood for the stove. The hot tub was a life saver since I had fallen earlier in the week. Thank you!

Great way to experience the mountain rainforest

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The cabin is very close to the entrance of the Volcano NP, which made it easy to beat the crowds in the morning and return to see the glow of the crater after dark. The cabin is stylish and neat. The children, 6 and 8, were thrilled to land in the middle of the rain forest, tree ferns, ginger, orchids, moss and all, literally in our back yard. I enjoyed a quiet half hour in the hot tub early in the morning, listening to the bird song and watching the honey creepers in action.

It took a while to heat the cabin, so it was a good idea to arrive relatively early in the afternoon. We heeded the advice to bring all our food and cooked in the well-equipped kitchen. Still, we were a little surprised we could not get a cup of coffee in the morning anywhere in town. But then, it was January 2nd.

Owner's Response: Hale Sweet Hale enchants children as well as adults with its natural setting in the rainforest. Hard to duplicate the tropical lush surroundings anywhere else. Come back soon to enjoy the beauty of Volcano.

Sitting in the hot tub then moving into the cozy well appointed cabin to enjoy the fire with a glass of wine. Waking up to the songs of the local birds. Just what we needed. Thank you. Chris.
