Specializing in hosting large groups, this rental is made to let our guests enjoy the whole house, its complete kitchen and spacious landscaped yard.

Located on the slopes of Kilauea, it is within a five minutes drive to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the Volcano Art Center Gallery, the Kilauea Military Camp and Recreation Area, the Volcano Golf course, and the Volcano village with its many restaurants and shops. Visit the National Park. Take a hike or two. Play a round of golf. Enjoy some great food. Explore the little village of Volcano. Travel down to Ka'u to see black sand beaches and turtles basking on the sand or travel to Hilo and swim in fresh water spring fed beaches.

Nature abounds with giant tree ferns (hapu'u and ama'u), native trees ('ohi'a), and shrubs. Birdwatchers can see many native birds right from the bedroom windows. Enjoy the quiet of the evenings and watch the moon rise from among the native forest. There are many things to do if that is your choice or you can relax and enjoy the quiet of the environment.

Mililani User ProfileMililani is a superhost.

Mililani and Don Hughes are the hosts of the Maluhia Guest House. Both are retired teachers and school administrators. Don is a rancher in Volcano with a small operation offering grass fed beef. They have lived in Volcano since 1981 and are well known in the community for their volunteer work.

They love to share the island with visitors. Mililani is a poet and writer who is very interested in Hawaiian culture. She is a hula student. Don is a science teacher who is interested in physiology and anatomy. His current interest besides cattle ranching is enlarging his biodiesel production.

Both have traveled to continental USA, Japan, Great Britain, Italy, and France. They like to travel and learn more about the lifestyles of the everyday people. As hosts, they would like to show guests what the aloha spirit is like outside of the Waikiki stereotype.
