Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Experience "old Hawai'i" in this unique, plantation-style home named "Hale KupuKupu".

The word kupu simply means "to grow or sprout" and this house honors the kupukupu fern, one of the first plants to bring life back to the land after a devastating lava flow, initiating the coming of the forest. The Hawaiians believe that the kupukupu fern is symbolic of growth and new beginnings and that with each new frond comes new opportunity, new experiences, and a fresh start.

Hale KupuKupu is constructed from old growth redwood planks in the single wall design traditional to the islands during the plantation period of the 1930s and '40s. Louvered jalousie windows allow the trade winds and mountain breezes to keep the house cool during the day and a fire in the wood-burning stove can warm the evening chill that comes with the higher elevation.

Decorated in a style that honors the Island's blending of Hawaiian and Asian Cultures, the home has two cozy bedrooms and a Balianese daybed in the living room allowing it to sleep up to five people comfortably. Hale KupuKupu offers a quiet and tranquil experience, reminiscent of a lifestyle from an era gone-by. The outside surroundings of the house provide natural beauty and incredible privacy.

Hale KupuKupu is nestled in a manicured 1/2 acre of park-like settings, surrounded by the native Ohi'a and Hapu'u Forest and walking distance from Old Volcano Village. Amenities in the village include several diverse restaurants, 2 grocery stores, 2 gas stations, a launderette, a post office, a nearby local winery, an 18-hole golf course, gift shops, art galleries and "da" best Sunday morning farmer's market at Cooper Center located just blocks away.

The house is just five minutes from the entrance to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. Once in the park you can take a hike across the floor of Kilauea-Iki crater or to Halema'u ma'u, home of the fire goddess Pele or you can climb through the volcano's many lava tubes.

Hale KupuKupu's location puts you 40 minutes from Ka Lae (South Point) & Green Sand Beach and Punalu'u Black Sand Beach where you may see turtles nesting and swimming. You are also 40 minutes away from historic and beautiful downtown Hilo with restaurants, shops, museums and nearby snorkeling beaches.

Beautiful, cozy home with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Hawaiian home and where it is located. It has a wonderful charm and filled with great things like heated blankets, a wood burning stove, beautiful home slippers and a welcome box of chocolates. After spending a full day at the volcano, it was wonderful to feel welcomed home. The grounds are gorgeous, filled with so many plants and places to relax and reflect. We appreciated all the details put into the house and wished we could stay longer. The kitchen is fully stocked and had fantastic local coffee. There was even a soap/shampoo dispenser in the shower. We also loved how the house runs on rainwater!

Make sure you bring layers for the cold at night and definitely get shaved ice from an awesome lady by Cooper center on Wright Rd. If you can, go back and see the volcano at night!

Perfect Base for Hiking the Park

  • 5 of 5

Loved waking up every morning to the sounds of the birds singing in the trees. We even saw pheasants running through the yard every evening while we were there. The house is really comfortable and warm feeling. Kitchen is perfect for being able to prepare meals. We enjoyed the outdoor shower complete with hot water. Quite and private location is perfect for relaxing.

Exceeded All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Loved this beautifully decorated cottage in the rainforest near the Volcano National Park. It was comfortable, extremely clean, and had everything we needed. We particularly enjoyed the wood burning stove in the living room in the evenings since the area can get chilly because of the elevation. The gardens are also incredible and the orchids in the front yard were in full-bloom.

Felt like real, old-time Hawaii

  • 4 of 5

We wished we could have stayed longer, but only had a day to see the Volcanoes and some of the coast. Somehow I missed whatever email was sent to give us the gate-code, so we had a bit of frantic-ness trying to figure out how to get in touch with Joey (the owner, I think), but she called us back and gave us the secret (thank you Joey!). The house really felt like - and was - an authentic old Hawaiian cottage; it has been updated for modern expectations without losing any of its charm. Every one of the three of us slept well. Make time to sit in the back yard!
