The Space

Take Highway 11 to Volcano. After mile 26, turn left on Pearl Avenue. If coming from Kona/South Point, pass the 27 mile marker. After the Lanihuli/Wright Road sign, turn right on Pearl Avenue. At the lefthand corner of Pearl and 7th, just a few miles away from the actively erupting Halemaumau Crater in the Volcanoes National Park, discover a delightful romantic studio surrounded by a Japanese bonsai garden and koi pond.

This beautiful open-beam studio boasts a kitchen complete with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave oven and gas stove. Amenities such as Japanese dishes, fleece-lined hapi coats and wireless internet, video and CD players. A queen-size bed with down comforter as well as an additional futon couch which opens into a bed, can accomodate 4 people. An infrared heater keeps you toasty on chilly evenings.

Laundry facilities with detergent and supplies ($6 per load) is available to make your traveling convenient and get you ready for the next adventure on your tour of the islands.

Enjoy the Asian touches of Ikebana and island floral arrangements while sipping a cup of ocha (tea), Kona coffee or enjoying island fruits or macadamia treats.

Stroll through the garden filled with bonsai--miniature Japanese trees which line the pathway and enjoy the giant koi while you contemplate the serenity of the Volcano with its native ohia and tree ferns. Listen for the native birds of the Volcano rainforest. You might even spy a Hawaiian hawk.

Talk story with native-born owner and bonsai/ jewelry designer, Fung Irvine, who will charm you with local history and sites to visit on your stay in Hawaii as well as direct you to the best eating places on the island.

For those first-timers to Volcano, please note that although we are on a tropical island, the Volcano is at 3400 foot elevation and gets pretty nippy (we've had hail and temperatures have been known to dip to the mid-forties). Don't forget to bring some warm clothes for chilly mornings and evenings as well as to visit the active volcanoes.
