Volcano house description

Lava Tube Hale has been a magical retreat for adventurers seeking to experience and explore the Volcano area

After hiking one of the 150 trails the park has to offer nothing hits the spot like a soak in the hot tub/whirlpool under the covered lanai. Situated in the rain forest the lanai and house are very private with no neighbor in sight. Guests have the option of showering inside or in the outside shower under the stars.

Lave Tube Hale (house) is well appointed with full kitchen for cooking or reheating meals from one of the many wonderful restaurants in Volcano Village just minutes away. We provide you with bottled water, coffee, teas and cocoa. When you arrive there will be an island welcome basket with bananas, papayas and a pineapple. To make is easy to slice your Pineapple we even have a Pineapple Slicer

Kick back, read or lounge by the fireplace. All are encouraged in the living room as well as playing board games with family and friends. Music/CDS and books are here to enjoy. Complementary WIFI is available for those who wish to keep up with social networking. A good old fashion telephone also is available for local calls.

The guest room has two twin beds, TV with DVD player and movies. The master bedroom has a queen bed with a thick memory foam pad to ensure the most restful sleep, plenty of comfortable bedding and linens throughout.

Kids and adults enjoy exploring the backyard rainforest complete with its very own lava tube!

Bernadette Boteilho purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Bernadette Boteilho chose Volcano

Michael and Kerry fell in love with the magic of Volcano and the rainforest so much that they bought this hale. They use it as a place to enjoy nature with family and friends. This special get-away spot is like nowhere else on earth and has been a retreat for them, as well as for folks from all around the world. We hope you´ll find some time to experience this incredible place in Volcano, home of Pele, and share some highlights about your stay at Lava Tube Hale with us. Aloha pumehana!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This enchanted cottage helped us enjoy a perfect family holiday and volcano experience. Our grandchildren (age 8 & 10) loved the jungle and the lava tube—and everything else about our visit.

A beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Lave Tube Hale- the home was beautiful and clean, the beds were amazingly comfortable, and the setting was quiet and serene. The hot tub and outdoor shower were definitely highlights, rain or shine- we enjoyed watching a family of pheasants pass by frequently as we spent time enjoying the water. The fireplace was cozy in the evenings, and the house had everything we needed. Laundry facilities were a nice bonus in the middle of our trip! Overall this was the perfect base for exploring the Volcanoes National Park, and our favorite of the three places we stayed on the island.

Bday Getaway 10/2017

  • 5 of 5

The Lava Tube Hale was a great find for our family of three. We decided to do a short weekend inter island vacation in Volcano to celebrate my husband's milestone birthday! The minute we stepped into the hale my husband said "Wow! Winnah! (Winner!) The place was inviting and cozy it was a bit chilly when we arrived at around 5 pm but the fireplace warmed the hale to a comfortable temp in no time. The place was clean and well kept inside and out. There were even some complimentary fresh fruit, candies, hot chocolate and tea etc... The only thing is that I was thinking that the internet was on a secure network but it was not. I suggest if you are not comfortable being on an open network you should bring your own portable wifi.

The outside was amazing a nice and clean hot tub also an outside shower. The yard was beautiful with small trails to escape in if you want some alone time. The best was waking up in the morning before everyone else to explore the outside with lots of indigenous birds to sing for you and to see beautiful trees and flowers. Wow! We explored the lava tube a bit such a neat thing to have one in your front yard! On our last morning at the Hale we even had a family of pheasants stop by to hang out with us to say Aloha before we packed up to leave.

It was nice to be close to the park so we even went after hours to have a shot of Halemaumau crater all to ourselves. With no one there you could actually hear the roar of the lava churning in the crater. We did some driving to our activites but it was always a nice treat to come home to the Lave Tube Hale.

PS Customer Service is on point! Bernie you are the best! Mahalo from the Dahilig Ohana! We hope to go back to your hale in the near future.

My husband, myself and three boys (5,7,9) enjoyed our stay at Lava Hale. We wish we would have spent more time there and less on the Kona side of the island. The owners are very hospitable with fruit, bread, coffee and tea as welcoming gifts. The hot tub was a wonderful way to connect and relax after our long days of exploring. My boys got a kick out of the outdoor shower. My youngest turned five when we were there and that will always be a wonderful memory for all of us. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and they supllied plenty of towels. So nice having laundry as well. Five stars!
