"Hale Sweet Hale sure says it all! We feel like we're the only people around with this great location and seclusion! The home is perfect as far as all the comforts available. The landscaping is a tropical garden. Really needed the fire place one night. Love the "Log cabin" look. We've been coming to the Big Island for 32 years now and have stayed in hotels, condos, and other rentals and by far this is the most comfy, relaxing spot we've ever been to."

''What a wonderful stay at Hale Sweet Hale! Beautiful home with such character and attention to detail. Volcano is truly a wonder, one of Big Island's best ! Such a nice getaway. Looking forward to our next return."

“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 rain forest! Love the smell of the cedar, and the skylights make this place truly airy and bright.'

“This is paradise! It is awesome! This is especially charming. Love the skylights. The sunlight is so bright but the stars- beautiful."

"What an amazing place to end our stay on the Big Island! So charming and warm with the feel of being one with nature. Would live to come here again."

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.

                                                                        Linda C.

                                                                        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

                                                                        Linda M.,

                                                                        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

                                                                        Daniela V.Chico, CA

                                                                        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.
