Why Rick chose Mountain View
Volcano Park Rentals is located in the Glenwood/Volcano area and is situated at an elevation of 2700 feet & there is minimal humidity and not many insects. The Center boasts beautiful views of the surrounding countryside which provides a peaceful environment. The Center is “off the grid” which means we generate our own solar power and water heating in addition to having our own water supply. 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms. The Gathering Room is 2000 sq. ft. overlooking nature with a large wrap-around Lanai. Swimming pool & Sauna. Shiatsu Massage Chair. We are in the country away from the city and the quaint town of Hilo is about 20 miles away. There you can go to the Farmer's Market, visit the Japanese Gardens, and you can tour the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens. You can even paddle board off Coconut Island. We are minutes away from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where you can view active volcanoes, hike in the jungle and view the volcano crater and also experience the Rainbow Waterfalls, and there are many more attractions and excursions within a short driving distance. At the end of your day you can return the peace and tranquility of The Celestial Sanctum. The Celestial Sanctum is a smoke, drug, alcohol & meat free environment within peaceful and tranquil surroundings.
What makes this House unique
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 and helpful with everything” Here’s what Tricia wrote “What a wonderful stay! Rick and Katy Joy are so warm and welcoming.

Rick and Katy Joy
I would like to share all of the amazing attributes of this incredible space but in keeping with a simple, less noisy lifestyle I will keep it as short as possible. First, no it's not a typo or scam. This beautiful, miniature "resort" (my description) is also the absolute best price I found ... this home would be a great deal at twice or three times the price. Value notwithstanding, the hosts provide a manifestly simple yet luxurious environment and wonderful amenities. Everything is extremely clean and top quality but just as importantly the space has a warm and positive atmosphere and energy. Being a mile and a half from the road it is serenely peaceful and comfortable as the climate at that elevation is much more pleasant than it can get down lower. No the drive is not that bad, I drove it in a compact sedan no problem, just slow down and enjoy the scenery ... by my fourth and last day I had come to really enjoy it. Rick and Katy are wonderful hosts and very interesting people. They're pretty busy keeping up the place much of the day (no staff, just them) but be sure and catch up with them during the scheduled house times, you won't regret it and you will probably learn something. They want you to have the most enjoyable experience you can and it shows in their efforts every day. Lastly, the morning breakfasts are incredibly healthy, tasty and nutritious bonuses .. this is a perk that you usually won't get at any price and you will love it I guarantee.
I was visiting to buy land nearby ... I left without any land yet but I came back with something much more valuable I feel. They introduced me to other local, like minded people that made me feel I was getting close in my journey to get back home. I will be their "neighbor" on the volcano someday soon and I'll be happy to be part of a community with people like Rick and Katy.
