Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three nights here and totally enjoyed our time. The home was peaceful, comfortable, and immaculately clean. We enjoyed being close to Volcano National Park so that we could return in the evening to watch the lava bubbling. The house was close enough to Hilo so that we could sight-see in that area on one day, after spending a day hiking in the National Park. We appreciated the kitchen, although between eating at the Thai food truck and the Kilauea Lodge restaurant I did not cook too much! The house also had a de-humidifier, which was nice on this rainy part of the island.

Beautiful, peaceful, and exactly what we needed to get some much needed r&r.

  • 5 of 5

Fronting the property one is welcomed by an immaculate yard and gorgeous view of this craftsman home surrounded by a lush rain forest filled with happy native birds tweeting away. Entering the home there is a continued level of beauty and excellence that welcomes all who are ready to escape the hustle and bustle of life and become filled once again with a rejuvenated soul. A well equipped kitchen and dining area, stunning bathroom and bedroom, convenient and clean laundry room, and a sweet living room area with an enchanting fireplace are perfectly set for a more than comfortable stay. Then there is the back yard...breathtakingly beautiful. Believe me, this place is definitely worth every penny.

Serene and private

  • 5 of 5

I've done a *lot* of VRBO and Airbnb properties, and this one is first-rate. Beautiful furnishings, well-stocked kitchen, comfortable bed in a very private and serene setting close to Volcano National Park. Highly recommend!

Quiet retreat with attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as I hoped and everything the listing described. Impeccably landscaped and beautifully decorated, it was perfect for a little time away in the rainforest in the shadow of a Volcano.

I think the sleeping arrangement would've been ideal for a couple, but the foldout couch was a little below par compared to everything else. That hardly kept the family from enjoying the stay, however.

We really enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and sitting around the fireplace when we weren't out exploring. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Absolutely gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

Wish we could've stayed longer but we only could book one night. This place was absolutely stunning both inside and out with manicured native gardens and immaculate indoor furnishing. It can house up to four people comfortably and is also a perfect couple's retreat. Thank you for sharing!

Do not hesitate to rent this home!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many VRBO homes and have to say this this was the very best. Volcano is a amazing place and this is a amazing house. Everything seems brand new and every small detail of comfort and supply is provided. Very private, romantic and stylish house at a very reasonable cost. Amazing little wandering path in the lush woods behind the house. We went from unrelenting heat in Kona to sitting cozy by the fireplace in a few short hours. Our only regret is we wish we stayed a few more days! Next time we will do it right!
