- Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is nearby, and is the primary attraction in this part of Hawaii. This house is on a 3-acre lot, in a remote and partially developed, rural subdivision. Lots are mostly forested. A 30,000-acrea natural forest reserve is adjacent; nearest neighbor is 300 yards away. This part of Volcano is exceptionally quiet and serene. The property is a conservation easement grant, intended to maintain the native forest in perpetuity...moreless

Volcano Village is well known for local graphic arts and handicrafts that are related to nearby volcanoes and Hawaiian culture. The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is nearby, with dozens of interesting trails, guided walks, and activities, such as hula performances and artist seminars. Active lava flows are accessible for adventurous travelers.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Retired National Park Ranger, devoted to forest conservation. I am intimately familiar with the nearby national park, and with most other recreational and cultural features in Hawaii Island. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of Hawaii natural and cultural history with travelers, and am happy to lead adventurous folks to places off the beaten track, if they ask. I speak a little bit of Mandarin Chinese (Putonghua), and I especially hope travelers from China and Taiwan will feel welcome here.
Why the Owner Chose Royal Hawaiian Estates (Volcano, HI, USA):
This property is part of the mid-elevation rain forest of Hawaii, now being broken up by development. I built my house here because it is as close as I can get to the natural forest and still feel connected to it. The house is built with big windows that look into the nearby treetops during the day and into the stars at night. Hot water is heated by solar panels; electricity is powered by photo voltaic panels, with backup from the electric utility. The property is a dedicated Conservation Easement --the first of several in the community.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Most travelers think of Hawaii as a place for beaches and warm surf, a welcoming spirit, and glitter. A little known feature of Hawaii, equally important and not very extensive, is the native rain forest, which abounds with interesting plants and animals. There is no other tropical rain forest in the US. Here a traveler can step into the natural, wild forest just 40 feet from the front door, and can hear the calls of native birds and insects, while sipping a morning coffee on the lanai. There is no car traffic and no nearby neighbors to disturb the peace. There is nothing lovelier than soaking in the hot tub on a cool evening, during a full moon, in the nearly absolute silence of the forest night. This is the life I have chosen for myself, and I am pleased I can make it available to others.
