About the property

I will be out of contact Aug 10-16 2017 ...I will reply to any inquiries for future bookings on August 16 or 17. We look forward to hosting you!

Explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and experience the Aloha of Hawaii Island while staying at this gorgeous, hand crafted home near Volcano Golf Course & Country Club. Nestled amongst the native Koa and Ohia Lehua Trees with a sweeping view of Mauna Loa and a steady serenade from the numerous native birds,this Hawaiian retreat will envelope you with a complete sense of peace and relaxation. Hale Ka Lehua was designed by owners John & Mindi Clark and personally built by John which shows in every well thought out detail.

The extensive use of glass gives one the feeling of being outside while within the warm comfort of indoors...perhaps snuggled next to the wood burning fireplace.

This 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath retreat has a completely private master bedroom located outside of the main home off of the front lanai. This sweet room has a full sized memory foam bed with a native garden view, 1/2 bath, night stand,reading lights over the bed and a small space heater for extra chilly winter nights.

The main floor bedroom has a queen memory foam bed, a small desk and closet and is located across the hall from the full bath (both Tub & shower).

The upstairs 'room with a view'' is a multi-purpose room with a full size Futon sofa bed (a real matress not a cotton one along with a memory foam mattress pad topper) that can be used as a reading or game room, a bedroom or a perfect place to practice Yoga, meditate or simply have some quiet time enjoying the full, mountain view of Mauna Loa through Frank Lloyd Wright inspired seamless corner windows.

The kitchen boasts gorgeous 'Flower Garden' granite, gas stove and oven and is completely stocked with Le Creuset cookware, small appliances and Riedel wine glasses.

French doors spill out from the solid ohia wood floored living & dining room onto the wrap around lanai that has outside dining and gas BBQ grill as well.

We invite you to come enjoy the beauty and quietude of this beautiful brand new home while exploring the amazing dynamics of Kilauea, the world's most active volcano located within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

The 'Dry side' of Volcano keeps you out out of what can be a constant drizzle & fog that shrouds the eastern flank. The golf course area is located just beyond the crest of 4,000' and dips you into the Kau side of Volcano where the temps will still range from the 40's to the mid 70's but with far more sun! We are 3 miles past the entrance to the park, but you can walk to the edge of the caldera from our home in just 20 minutes...a perfect place to sip a glass of wine while soaking in the view of Halema'uma'u and getting a glimpse of the powers of Madame Pele.

Both the Volcano Golf Course and Volcano Winery are within a few minutes walk from the house.

About Melinda Clark

We moved to the Hawaiian village of Kalapana located on the SE corner of the Big Island in 1981 to escape the freeways of So. California. We were blessed to live, surf and paddle canoe here for 8 years before Madame Pele covered this community with lava in the late 80's & early 90's. We lost our home to the lava but our orchid farm,'Kalapana Tropicals' that we started in 1987 remains in tact and is now just one of 2 orchid nurseries that we own and operate...the other being in Kurtistown where we have lived since 1990. Free orchid farm tours for our guests!

Melinda Clark purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Melinda Clark chose Volcano

We love the Volcano area for it's cool weather, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and hiking and cycling opportunities. It's a quick get-a-way for us as it is only 20 minutes from our home in Kurtistown and we feel like we are in another world!

What makes this cabin unique

We selected this property because it is located on the 'dry side' of Volcano, it's bounty of native Koa and Ohia trees that are filled with birds. John took great care in removing only enough trees to build and the home is designed with a bedroom off the lanai to save trees and give this home a tree house feel.

Amazing house - one of a kind!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at what became known in our family as "the volcano house." This is a beautiful house. Rich wood floors and walls. Plenty of space for our family. We had two kids comfortably upstairs in the loft area, my father in the main house bedroom, and my husband and I in the detached master. It was quiet and so comfortable. The jacuzzi was a great way to unwind, under the stars. And the kids LOVED the tree house!! We were so close we could drive to the caldera to see the lava in less than 10 minutes, then return home to roast marshmallows in the back yard fire pit. We loved having beach chairs and toys ready to go, and there are bikes, too. Really, we could want for nothing... except perhaps a couple of juice glasses (though the collection of stemware is awesome). One of our best VRBO experiences ever!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful, peaceful and has everything you could want. I hate to write such a wonderful review because then the secret is out! Definitely one of the best vrbo places we have ever stayed. Check out the beautiful staircase, the hot tub and the deck surrounded by natural beauty and wildlife.

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

House was in a really great location with quick access to Volcano National Park. It was very quiet and much drier than the other side of town which was nice. I loved all of the wood inside clearly a lot of care went into building the house. Some of the trimming was missing in the master bedroom. I'd also suggest having the towels dried immediately after washing them so they don't sit in the wash for long. I would definitely recommend the house to others looking for some peace and quiet and a place to spread out.

Cozy retreat with great access to Volcanoes National Park

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home with a quiet/private location close to Volcanoes National Park. We appreciated having the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry stocked with essentials and only had to worry about buying the main foodstuffs we would need during the time there. We were also pleased to have binoculars and extra flashlights to borrow for use while hiking around the park. I would highly recommend this and would certainly stay again!

We are 3 miles past the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, just past the Volcano Golf Course which is located on Pi'imauna Drive (1st Right past the 4,000 elevation marker on Highway 11). We are a 20 minute walk to the edge of Kilauea Caldera (from the house),10 minute walk to the golf course & a 5 minute walk to the winery. Lots of hiking trails, cycling, exploring the National Park and lava viewing.

You may also park at the entrance of our subdivision at the corner of Pi'imauna and the highway and access the park or the shopping facilities within the Kilauea Military camp. From here the walk to the caldera is less than 10 minutes. Access the hiking trails across from the flag pole at Kilauea Military Camp ...aka KMC.

We have 2 bikes for your enjoyment as well.
