Rick purchased this Lodge in 2016
Why Rick chose Mountain View
For the last 12 years we traveled the world and visited 22 Countries looking for the perfect place to locate a Retreat Center. The Big Island of Hawaii is where we spent our Honeymoon and after all the travels, we decided this was the perfect place. Guest Testimonials: Here’s what Nicole wrote: “We stayed there for four nights. My room was the largest suite with bath and part of the patio. The place is pretty close to everything if you wanna explore volcanos. But make sure you get yourself a car with high clearance, the road to the house was kinda bumpy and it damages the base if you have a low clearance. Every else was just perfect. The hosts were nice and sweet :) ” Here’s what Stephanie wrote “Rick and Katy Joy are amazing hosts who took little moments of time to make our Hawaiian home so comfortable. Everything from the cleanliness of the room, light and delicious breakfasts, to personal inquiries about our ventures outside of the lovely Celestial Sanctum. They made us feel like instant guests of the family. Their home was the perfect location for checking out the southern coast of Hawaii. Kona, Hawaii Volcano Nat'l Park, Pahoa, South Point and Hilo. I hope we see them again!” Here’s what Sophea wrote “A secluded and quiet location. Close to Volcano National Park and Hilo. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Katy and Rick are wonderful hosts. Would be coming back again. ” Here’s what Charlie wrote “Rick et Katy sont de très bons hôtes, mais surtout des personnes merveilleuses. Ils nous ont fourni de très bons conseils pour visiter l'île et sont très disponibles. Les chambres proposées font partie d'une grande maison située dans un très bel endroit au milieu de la nature. Si vous êtes à la recherche de tranquilité, de relaxation et de dépaysement, cet endroit est parfait pour vous ! ” Here’s what Debbie wrote “Great location right beside the volcano national park. Awesome and clean rooms. Rick and Katy was very hospitable
What makes this Lodge unique
One of the great things about our location is that we are close to an International Airport (Hilo) which is only 20 miles away. The weather is great! We are in the countryside but the nearest town is only a few miles away. Lots of open space on this beautiful 25 acre property and room to grow our own food in our greenhouse and the bountiful land. We have a 2000 sq. ft. Gathering Room for Guests along with a swimming pool, sauna, Shiatsu massage chair and lots of fun things to do. There is a fridge/freezer in each room and the guests have access to the kitchen for light meals like sandwiches and heating items up in the toaster oven or microwave. We provide a coffee maker and tea in the Gathering Room. We supply a healthy breakfast for each guest. We are an alcohol, drug, smoking and meat free facility. When you arrive ask to see our Guest guidelines and we have a liability release form to sign when you arrive and if you would like a copy ahead of time, let us know.

Great home base for exploring the Southern part of The Big Island Hawai'i.
Rick and Katy are straight forward to deal with, providing lots of insider information on out of the way experiences on The Big Island. The view from the common area where you can enjoy the healthy breakfast that Rick and Katy provide is peaceful. The veranda is a perfect place to watch the two goats playing in the yard. The room is very clean with a fridge to store perishables in. The bed is a nice place to relax and get a good night sleep to prepare for the next day's adventure. Lots of extra blankets if you are there during cooler periods. The shower and bathroom facilities are topnotch.
I would not hesitate to recommend Rick and Katy spot to any of my friends or family.

A special place.
It was lovely and peaceful, as were the hosts. You really feel removed from the hustle of daily life. The road getting there is tricky but the result was worth it. Fabulous, healthy breakfasts.
We are happy that you found Volcano Park Nature Lodge a peaceful place. We hope you enjoyed your stay on The Big Island!

The owners were friendly and accomodating. The property overlooks much of the area. The price was cheap.
