About the property

Ainani Jade Ohana Downstairs Unit- Sleeps 6!

Ainani Jade Ohana in Volcano Village is a lovely and spacious beautified house with many windows overlooking tall Hapu'u ferns in a rainforest setting, with beautiful peaceful views awaiting you whether it is sunny, misty or rainy.

We also have a fresh filtered drinking water spigot on the sink. Also three dehumidifiers to keep the air dry and free from any odor. Also a new 38" TV with many cable channels and dvd movies.

This listing (SLEEPS 6) is the "downstairs" of this vacation rental.

Please respect privacy of guests booked upstairs.

The downstairs unit has one huge bedroom, divided by a full height wall into two sleeping areas. One with two double/full sized beds, one with one double/full size bed. Sorry there are no doors to the bedrooms.

There is one bathroom, full kitchen, living room and cable TV and telephone.

Homeowners recently installed a HD 43" new TV downstairs & we have a list of the programs for them.

Brand new 4-burner propane BBQ to enjoy!

While enjoying Kona coffee by the wood stove, you can look over the giant hapu'u tree ferns (12 feet high), exotic flowers of Ginger and Anthuriums (in season), and the dark Ohia trees with the red Lehua blossoms. A peaceful, serene escape from the 'daily grind'. Every window has a nice view.

Enjoy natural beauty and incredible privacy. Step out your door and into a quiet time and place. Stroll down the canopied lanes located less than a half-mile from the heart of the village or take in some of the many sights of the island easily accessible from here.

Located in the beautiful Volcano Village area on the Big Island of Hawaii, our vacation rental cottages are less than a mile from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Our rental homes are on "The Sacred Lands of Ola'a" which includes the Ola'a Forest Reserve, a gorgeous land of lush Hapu'u ferns and mature 'Ohi'a trees.

Hawaii's Big Island is a place where you and your family can relax and enjoy your vacation. We provide the best Big Island accommodations with all the facilities you need to make your Hawaii holiday a memorable one.

Here is a review from one of our happy guests

“Very good location to explore the Volcano national park Excellent value for money - the apartment is very spacious, was very clean and has all the facilities we needed. Well worth the price".- Karen

Comments were made about the presence of musty air in our home, this was a bit upsetting and resulted in a thorough investigation and the hiring of a professional. We are happy to say this matter has been successfully dealt with and once again there is nothing but fresh, clean, nice smelling air, in our vacation rentals".

Poor service

  • 1 of 5

Unfortunately, we had a poor experience with this unit.

When we arrived to check in at about 4:30 PM, all the dehumidifiers in the unit were powered off due to the fact that their bins were full. The unit smelled of mold to the extent that I looked for other accommodations in the area. The carpet felt wet on the feet. Once emptied, the dehumidifiers were full again by about 2 AM, necessitating another emptying in the middle of the night. We were charged a substantial cleaning fee and I would expect this maintenance to be done with appropriate frequency prior to check in!

This is also not a two bedroom unit in any meaningful sense of the word. There is a wall separating a sleeping area with 2 double beds from a sleeping area with one queen bed, but there is no door. The reason I gave one star is that when I emailed to bring these issues to the attention of the owner, I was told that the housekeeper empties the dehumidifiers regularly so the situation I was reporting was not possible!!!

Definitely would not stay here again, and recommend you be prepared for poor customer service.

SUPERB!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and excellant accomodations. We enjoyed the proximity to Volcano National Park, gasoline and restaurants. Exceeded our expectations. It is very spacious. Humidifier and heaters made our stay comfy.

I would recommend this property to others, very affordable, and would stay again.

Excellant customer service.

Une maison à deux pas du Volcano National Park

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons eu la chance de passer une semaine à Volcano dans cette jolie maison.

Son plus grand atout ? Le fait qu'elle se trouve à 5 minutes en voiture du parc national du Kilauea. Nous avons eu le plaisir de pouvoir le parcourir de long en large, d'explorer tous ses sentiers et de voir le volcan sous toutes ses coutures... Le fait de devoir très peu rouler en fin de journée était donc une bénédiction.

La maison est assez grande, agréable.

A notre arrivée, nous avons été un peu empruntée devant les appareils américains, qui diffèrent grandement des modèles que l'on peut trouver en Suisse. Nous ne savions donc pas utiliser les plaques de cuissons, ni allumer le chauffage, ni nous servir de la machine à laver. Il aurait été grandement apprécié de trouver quelques parts une sorte de livret d'accueil avec ce type d'instructions. La propriétaire m'a dit qu'elle songerait à cette proposition.

Il y a trois grands lits... qui ne sont malheureusement pas vraiment isolés les uns des autres. Cela n'est pas très claire sur les photos qui vantent la maison... Pour l'intimité, sur une semaine, ce n'est pas forcément très agréable.

Vu que Volcano se trouve à 1200 m d'altitude, il y fait plutôt frais. Nous avions peur d'avoir froid, mais, honnêtement, ce ne fut pas le cas. Nous avons vraiment très bien dormi. Dans le cas où la nuit était un peu plus fraîche, une quantité de couverture était à notre disposition.

La salle de bain est plutôt bien équipée... A trois, par contre, le dernier se douchait souvent, malheureusement, à l'eau froide, le boiler n'étant pas assez grand.

Le jardin tout autour de la maison est très luxuriant et magnifique à regarder, avec toutes ces fleurs tropicales et ses oiseaux qui chantent. Nous avons bien profité de la terrasse... Je suggérerai tout de même aux propriétaires de penser, pourquoi pas, à l'avenir, à mieux équiper celle-ci. La végétation est magnifique, mais l'équipement pour en profiter (une table basse et deux chaises en métal) n'est franchement pas très "cosy".

Au vu de sa situation au coeur d'une forêt tropicale, la maison est très très humide... Pour y remédier, il suffit de faire fonctionner un moment les trois déshumidificateurs fournis. C'est très efficace.

Le cadre est calme et très sympathique. Un bémol pour l'isolation phonique de la maison qui est plutôt faible, ce qui fait que l'on s'entend un peu trop, entre voisins.

Dans l'ensemble, une belle expérience. Je recommande donc volontiers cette location...

Okay for price

  • 2 of 5

As the other reviews state, the furnishings and cooking utensils need upgraded. The damp and musty smell was better when we ran the dehumidifier. Really could use queen beds. The television issue was resolved while we were there. The price is lower than most rentals in the Volcano area, and the location was ideal for us. With a few upgrades, this could be a very nice place.

LESS THAN

  • 1 of 5

I for one can NOT complaint about the fact that this a basement conversion that is damp and musky, has a lack of doors/privacy, substandard HOT water and cheap/thrift store furniture.

The reason I can NOT complaint about this is that: THE OWNER TOOK MY MONEY, NEVER GAVE CLEAR DIRECTIONS WHERE TO FIND THIS PLACE AND . . . AFTER I EMAILING TWICE, AND CALLING BOTH THE 808# (manger?) AND THE 707# (owner?) I STILL HAVE NOT HEARD FROM ANYONE . . . NOT THAT NIGHT OR MORE THAN A WEEK LATER! I know that the phone number I gave them was working because I used it both to call out and I received calls while in Volcano.

I did find a nice place to stay . . . after seven P.M., when it was dark, cold and raining. When asked about what went wrong the second B&B owner’s remarked that there were “A LOT OF AMATEURS” on the VRBO site that made it difficult for the professionals.

AND the owner and manager (who ever that is) can NOT say that I should have called! These people should get OUT OF A BUSINESS THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!

Musty and damp

  • 1 of 5

We chose this property because it was close to the National Park. We definitely did not think it was worth the $$. We booked for three nights but only managed one! It smelt so bad that we had to go find somewhere else for our family to stay! The beds were really small for two people and the furnishings very old and basic! Initially we couldn't even find the key to get in and then the WIFI had no password supplied. The owner was really hard to reach and we had to find a payphone ( from Australia) and make many calls and waste money trying to get answers! We couldn't get the TV to work and the owners couldn't help with this.

We rent out a cottage at home so had certain basic expectations which were not met by this property. We ended up staying in Hilo which is an easy drive to the park and much more pleasant.
