(Ohia is the State Tree with red flowers used in the original Hawaiian Leis).
There are beautiful walking trails that winded through 1,000+ year old rainforest that shares a border with Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. If you enjoy birds, this is one of the few places you can stay in Hawaii where you can still see the rare and endangered native Hawaiian forest birds. There is a nesting pair of endangered Hawaiian Hawks on the property, as well as several species of honeycreepers (Apapane, Amakihi, and I'iwi, with occasional visits by a small flock of Akepa) to whose beautiful and mellow songs you will awaken each morning. Nene fly overhead daily, and the Hawaiian Thrush (Omao) sings each evening. The owner has willed the property to the San Diego Zoo's Institute for Conservation Research to preserve it in perpetuity.
You will experience the magic of Hawaii's rare old growth rainforest in a very personal way while staying in an outstanding deluxe home. .

We had a great time in this lovely Volcano home, the directions getting there were great, glad we came during the day as it can be hard to find at night. The property and house are truly amazing the pictures do not do it justice, watching the stars at night and falling asleep to the sound of the koi pond fountain was wonderful, we had a great time! Make sure you stop at the grocery store in hilo to take advantage of the wonderful kitchen!
Absolutely beautiful home and property. Better then expected. Beds are super comfortable. Some rental homes seem to be stocked with the owner's previous items that are old and worn out. Not the case here. Quality touches everywhere.
If you want to explore Volcano National Park this home makes a perfect base camp.
my brother and I really enjoyed the place and the view. It's a gem, definitely great for retreat. It's so close to the national park. It only takes twenty minutes to drive up to the observatory to watch lava at night. I extremely enjoyed the towels haha they were so comfortable and soft!! The bed is so comfortable too. I had such good sleeps. Of course we also took advantage of the sauna and jacuzzi. Really, I have nothing to complain :)
