This is a gem of a place in an amazing location! We would've stayed here the entire trip if we had known! Super comfy, clean, and not too far from volcanos and the black sand beaches :)

The space and location is wonderful. It was very clean, and it was very convenient to drive to Volcanoes National Park. You will definitely get peace and quiet. Fung is a gracious host. She made sure we had everything we needed and also gave us suggestions for things to see/do.

Fungs place was comfortable and quiet. It felt just like home only with a rainforest around us ! The space was private and spacious.

Fung has truly carved out a slice of heaven at the House of Bonsai. Her trees are beautiful, and sitting next to her koi pond and watching them swim is about as relaxing as it gets. Staying here was an absolute delight - from the pristine interior with all the amenities we could need and more, to the generous hand-prepared breakfast she made for us in the morning. Fung and Mike were spectacular hosts, and we enjoyed talking with them just as much as we enjoyed staying in their amazing home. If we ever return to the Big Island, we'll definitely make a point to stay at the House of Bonsai again. Here's hoping our paths will cross again in the future!

Carolyn (Fung) User ProfileCarolyn (Fung) is a superhost.

Born and raised in Hawaii, I am a retired high school English teacher who enjoys every moment of life doing the things that bring joy, adventure and relaxation. I can spend hours on the dance floor free-style dancing, playing mahjong or djembe drumming. I am co-founder of the Big Island Jazz and Blues Society responsible for bringing in performers like Maria Muldaur, Ray Brown Jr., or Keahi Conjugacion and Volcano Choy Jr. to our humble Hilo town.

In quiet moments I love working with my bonsai and spending my time designing my koi pond. Working with our rich Volcano soil planting organic vegetables is also an enjoyable pastime. Travel to distant lands is always exciting, my favorite spots being Iquitos on the Amazon, Machu Picchu, the Cotswolds in England and bungie jumping in New Zealand.

Saturdays find me with the wind in my face on the back of our new Ultra Classic Harley heading for lunch at The Fish and Hog in Waimea, Aunty Kanae's for teri pork or Gramma's in Honoka'a. I love being a biker babe and we did a one-month bike tour to Sturgis and the Badlands. Maybe one day I can learn to ski and hope happy visitors to my House of Bonsai will successfully get me there. Oh, I also create whimsical jewelry so visit my workshop and take home some one-of-a-kind pieces.

I was a caregiver for my awesome dad who passed at the age of 101. Yes, we have longevity in our family. Dad comes from a family of 15. He and Mom taught us to be resilient and independent, to let nothing stand in our way and to always have a sense of humor. I have some fabulous stories of Dad's to share with all who visit and want to take home a treasured piece of the islands found nowhere else in the world. Come and visit me in Volcano, and partake of a unique experience.
