About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Home

This unique retreat, Ku'uipo Cottage is nestled in an ohia tree and hapu’u fern forest where only the ali’i (royalty) were allowed in ancient times. Refresh your spirit with the sounds of native honeycreepers and the whisper of the high elevation breeze through the trees.

Enjoy natural beauty and incredible privacy. Step out your door and into a quiet time and place. Stroll down the canopied lanes located less than a half-mile from the heart of the village or take in some of the many sights of the island easily accessible from here.

We are just five minutes from the entrance to Volcanoes National Park. Hike across the floor of Kilauea-Iki crater or to Halema'u ma'u, home of the fire goddess Pele, or take a night hike to see the active lava flows.

Your Volcano Village location puts you 40 minutes from Punalu’u Black Sand Beach, where you may see turtles nesting and swimming, one and a half hours from from the City of Refuge, and only 40 minutes from historic and beautiful downtown Hilo with restaurants, shops, museums and nearby snorkeling beaches.

Amenities in the village include several diverse restaurants, 2 grocery stores, 2 gas stations, launderette, gift shops, art galleries, post office, a nearby local winery, 18-hole golf course and 'da' best Sunday morning farmer's market.

Located in the beautiful Volcano Village area on the Big Island of Hawai'i, our vacation rental cottages are less than a mile from the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. Our rental homes are on 'The Sacred Lands of Ola'a' which includes the Ola'a Forest Reserve, a gorgeous land of lush Hapu'u ferns and mature 'Ohi'a trees.

Each of our lovely, affordable homes and cottages offers a completely private, self-sufficient, romantic setting for an especially memorable Hawai'ian vacation getaway. They’re even perfect for families! All of our homes are intended to be a smoke free environment.

Hawai'i's Big Island is a place where you and your family can relax and enjoy your vacation. Hawai'i Volcano Vacations provides the best Big Island accommodations with all the facilities you need to make your Hawai'i holiday a memorable one. You can find a rental to suit your taste, and we assure you that the rentals at Hawai'i Volcano Vacations will fit your budget.

All our houses are non-smoking.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little cottage. It was so cozy and the perfect place to return too after a long day of exploring. It's only 5 minutes from the entrance to the Volcano's National Park. Every morning we heard and saw tons of birds. It's very private. The house is fully equipped. We would definitely stay here again!

sweet seclusion

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a very secluded spot near Hawaii Volcano National Park, this is the spot. The house is very tastefully decorated - quality - not full of brick-brack-tack-tack. It is clean and lovely. A perfect retreat.
