About Carolyn Ridderman

Aloha! My name is Carolyn, and Hawaii is the home of my heart. I felt an immediate connection to this place the moment I arrived 13 years ago.

If you love the outdoors as I do, then you will be truly inspired by the natural beauty of Hawaii. This is what motivates me to get out of bed everyday - the sounds of the rainforest, the fresh air, and the opportunity to hike through the forest 365 days a year.

I believe that guests should feel welcomed, safe, and comfortable here. I want you to have a wonderful experience in Hawaii, and am available to share my in depth knowledge of the area.

Carolyn Ridderman purchased this studio in 2014

Why Carolyn Ridderman chose Puna District

I chose to live in Volcano because it is such a beautiful and peaceful area of Hawaii. I feel so fortunate to live next door to Volcanoes National Park where there are endless hiking trails through fern forests and over lava rock.

What makes this studio unique

My favorite aspect of the cottage is the spacious lanai. I love sitting on the adirondack chairs in the morning as I sip my coffee and listen to the sounds of nature. When the air is chilly, I put on a sweater and warm my feet by the fire.

Sleep in the comfiest bed, wake up in a rainforest

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Volcano One! The studio is so clean and furnished beautifully. The bed and bedding were very comfortable and you can't beat the convenience of being so close to the park. I loved all the natural light and seeing the amazing trees and flowers through our windows.

Great little studio among the ferns

  • 5 of 5

We were in Volcano area for 1 night and this was the perfect place to stay while enjoying the Volcano National Park. The bed and pillows were amazing, which is the most important thing when just staying for the night. Everything is new looking and clean. The dehumidifier keeps the air nice and clean, no damp smell. Love the soap dispensers in the shower. Everything was perfect.

Coziness in Volcano Village

  • 5 of 5

This little place was the cutest and comfiest spot near Volcano Village. Carolyn has you covered, supplying everything you need during your stay. It is so close to the Volcano National Park, it is the perfect place to stay while exploring the Big Island. We easily checked in (opened the door!) and then headed right to the park. The next day we traveled to other spots driving over 200 miles. The comfortable bed and warm shower were a welcoming touch when we arrived back to the unit. Thanks for your hospitality Carolyn!

Perfect spot just outside the park!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for anything more in this perfectly appointed studio right outside Volcano NP. The space was efficiently laid out and contained everything we needed to enjoy our stay and relax after a few long hikes, late nights, and early mornings in the park. Loved everything about it and would recommend to anyone. Private and comfortable!

Fantastic stay in the fern forest of the volcano!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for three nights. We absolutely loved the property and location and plan to return someday. The studio was well stocked with everything we would need. It was wonderful to be able to hop over to VNP to see the volcano at sunrise, sunset, or anytime in between, as well as stop home in between hikes or other plans like driving down to the black sand beach about 45-60min to the west. We enjoyed restaurants in Volcano (breakfast at Kilauea Lodge and Volcano House, dinners at Thai Thai and Cafe Ohelo) and having coffee at the studio. We originally had a tough time deciding on staying at Volcano House vs this studio and ended up very happy with our choice - plus we saved quite a bit of $! Highly recommend.
