It's the only place in the U.S. that you can safely see active lava spilling into the ocean creating more land and expanding our island.
**Volcano National Park- See the Kilauea Caldera, explore the many miles of hiking trails, lava tubes, Visitor Center, Guided Nature walks with park ranger, Museum, and our most favorites are hiking through a rainforest to the floor of a dormant volcano crater and then returning at night to view the glow of the crater, it’s amazing! - (25 mins)

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We would like to introduce ourselves to you, our guests. We are John and Shauna Knutsen, we have two children Cindy and Zane, and our nephew Jayvan and he's the only one still at home. We fell in love with Hawaii when we got married on Kauai, and have been coming back every since. There is no other place to us like Hawaii, its not just the beauty you see with your eyes, its the beauty of the humble people, the culture and the slowed down island time feel that allows you to truly relax and take the time to enjoy creation. We love to bring our family and friends to enjoy this wonderful place, and even though all of Hawaii has so much to offer we decided on the Big Island- since it is so large and there is so much variety and so many climates- What other island can you be in a rain forest, an arid desert, an active volcano, on top of the tallest mountain from the sea floor (snow covered in winter), all on the SAME DAY! And even though all the islands are beautiful we feel that this island has some of the Best of the Best right here!
Why the Owner Chose Ainaloa, HI, USA:
We chose this area since we love the beauty, the tropical rain at night, the Coqui frogs singing, and the area is centrally located to our favorite places! And we love the easy going friendly laid back atmosphere.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love that the Cottage is a tropical retreat in a semi-rural country setting on paved roads in a private family community giving us the experience of "Real Hawaii Living" Since it is a private home on over 1/4 acre, there's room for us to enjoy the tropical setting and fruit trees with usually some type of ripe fruit for to pick, eat and enjoy. We love gardening and being able to plant something and it just grows into something beautiful to eat or look at. We also enjoy the country feeling so when you look outside you see nature, you hear the birds, Coqui Frogs, (and lately sometimes even a rooster to remind us of the country) and not the noise, fast pace, and hustle of the city. There's also some great farmers markets close by, with fresh fruits, vegetables, and local foods and crafts, and even local music to relax and enjoy in the open air. Unlike Hotels, both the Coqui Cottage and the Ohana studio are set up so that you don't need to have much other than your clothes and toothbrush, and you will feel just like it's home with all the comforts and amenities giving you that relaxed at home feel, so after a long day of exploring all the beauty and unique experiences the Big Island has to offer, we can either pick up dinner on our way back and come "home" and relax, and many times we enjoy a home cooked meal that we threw in the crock pot or oven before we left in the morning, and sometimes when we have friends with us, we love to throw something on the BBQ and eat dinner in the screened in outdoor living space with our family and friends.
