Kahi Malu The Peaceful Place in Volcano Village

Bedrooms 2
Space 960 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Kahi Malu is a two-bedroom, one-bath cottage in Volcano Village, on a quiet one-lane road. This spacious and comfortable guest cottage has room for a family of five but is also ideally suited for couples or singles. Kahi Malu has its own parking space off the driveway.

The entry ramp leads up to the covered front porch, which has a built-in bench for guests to use for removing shoes, island-style, before entering the cottage or putting them back on, when heading back out. We offer umbrellas for guests to use on those rainy Volcano days. The front porch is also the designated smoking area for guests who choose to smoke.

The cottage has koa floors throughout, with Egyptian-loomed area rugs, a bound carpet in the dining area, and numerous custom built-ins.

The bathroom has a low-walled sitz bathtub/shower and was renovated in 2009.

The built-in living room entertainment unit houses a cable TV, a DVD player with a DVD collection, a mini-stereo with an iPod cradle, an eclectic collection of CDs and music cassettes, drawing supplies, small toys, and games.

There is a well-equipped kitchen, renovated in 2011, with an adjacent dining area.

The living room has a full-sized futon couch, two comfortable rattan armchairs, with small tables, and a propane heat stove. We offer gloves and headlamps for guests’ use, as well as house slippers, disinfected between guests’ use.

The master bedroom has a very comfortable cal-king bed, with built-in headboard and side tables.

In the middle of the master bedroom is a built-in desk and shelving unit and, on the far wall, slingstyle chairs with an ottoman and a small table.

Accessed from the master bedroom is a spacious covered lanai, with built-in benches and a dining table at one end and a sofa with low table, at the other end; there are stairs to the ground, off the lanai.

The second bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed with built-in head board and side tables.

Lush landscaping outside shelters Kahi Malu, a restful home base for exploring the Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park!

Wonderfull Rain Forest Experiance

  • 5 of 5

The home is situated in the rain forest of the Village of Volcano. Perfect location to explore Volcano National Park and then set back and relax to the sights and sounds of the rain forest. Kathryn was a wealth of knowledge about the area and a very gracious host. The home was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities one would need. We would like to thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us. George & Lorie

Great location for stay in Volcano Village

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights at this quaint home and it served our purposes very well. We wanted to be close to the park, and to get a flavor of the Village. The property is exactly as pictured, was very clean, was supplied with absolutely everything you need (including excellent coffee) and the owner was extremely gracious. She is obviously very knowledgeable with the area, and shares this info in detail, with literature and maps available as well. The lanai was a perfect place to have breakfast, and enjoy the tropical surroundings of the home. We would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves in Volcano Village on a return trip.

Owner's Response: Aloha Phil, Mahalo (Thanks) for your glowing review. I would enjoy hosting you and Kasey, again, if you return for another stay in Volcano. My favorite part of managing and hosting our vacation-rental cottages is meeting guests and sharing information about our cottages, the village of Volcano, the nearby Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, and this "Big" Island, Moku Nui ("Island Very-Big" in Hawaiian). I am glad that you were comfortable in the cottage and hope that you can return, one day. Mahalo hou (Thanks again), Kathryn

Thank you very much for that wonderful time here in Volcano. We spent 4 nights in your lovely cottage. And thanks for your tips, your information about the park was very helpful. We look forward to coming back in a few years.

We are glad that you were comfortable in Kahi Malu and that you took full advantage of the cottage's proximity to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. It would be good to host you and your family, again, in a few years! Mahalo ā nui/Vielen Dank! Kathryn
