As soon as we entered the house, the 7 of us was just so amazed at how beautiful everything was.
Such a relaxing place to unwind after a big day exploring. Cozy, peaceful, and relaxing. We didn't want to leave.
It was very convenient to be close to the volcano national park as we spent the day there touring.
The big island is definitely the highlight of our hawaii family vacation, and staying in this beautiful home was the nicest way to end the trip.
Everything went smoothly, from booking, questions, and arrival.
Host was very helpful and responds very quickly.
The house is beautiful and a great place to relax for a few days. The proximity to Volcano village, restaurants, Hilo and the Volcano National Park makes it very convenient. Its a big house with a beautiful backyard, deck and basketball court for the kids to play. We felt there was nothing missing on the amenities and in a couple instances, it was easy to get in touch with the maintenance folks who responded promptly. Overall, a great experience - which we would recommend to others.
The house was clean, warm and inviting upon arrival. The house was exactly as described. Our friends that were visiting were thrilled with the house as were my husband and I. The house is very comfortable and the beds were very nice too. It was in a great location and provided us with all the amenities one would need. The neighborhood was beautiful as it is filled with ohia trees and hapu'u pulu ferns. Very quiet and peaceful. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with us! Much Aloha
We stayed here with my family to celebrate our parents' 50th wedding anniversary. The place was great for the 6 of us as each couple had their own comfortable bedroom. The downstairs living area has a roomy open floor plan perfect for family gathering.
This jungle property is only a couple of miles away from the entrance of the Volcano park which is very convenient to going back and forth to the park for day hikes to various trails and night time Volcano watching. Will definitely stay again when we have an opportunity.
Stunning. That's a one word description for this beautiful contemporary arts & crafts style home. What you see is what you'll get and much more...good design (right down to the kitchen drainboard), quality workmanship, spaciousness, atmosphere (gorgeous bird songs, lush greenery everywhere you look) and clean as a whistle. We loved the little touches, such as the Kona coffee beans and the bean grinder, the bowl of fresh fruit including papaya and bananas and, on the walls throughout, huge woodcut prints and photographs from island artists (saw more of this work in the Volcano Art Center). There's plenty of laundry detergent in the washer/dryer room and shampoo/conditioner in the showers. You won't miss any key cooking utensils, except maybe kitchen scissors but that's about it! And the location is 5 minutes from Volcano National Park's Visitor Center. SO convenient!! Now...word to the wise: it gets chilly in Volcano, so bring a sweater and long pants or at least some layering clothes. And it gets a bit nippy in this home, too, particularly in the a.m., so every morning we built a wonderful fire in the wood-burning stove which you'll need to warm the home, as there's no thermostat. Full instructions are provided so you can't go wrong! It was sheer pleasure to do this while making morning coffee. Overall, we have nothing but great memories from this place. We don't know the owner from a hill of coffee beans but we say to him: well done!!
The house is so sweet, clean and comfortable. My parents, my husband and I felt like home. My parents loved the hot tub, they spent 2 evenings in the tub. My husband loved fireplace. Beds are very comfortable. Beautiful art and furniture. The location is very close to the Volcano national park. Everything is so nice, we would come back again.
Hale 'Apapane was the perfect location to visit Volcano National Park. We loved our home away from home. The fire place, hot tub and rain forest surrounding the house gave that additional comfort and ambience of peace and relaxation. We felt refreshed after staying here. Thanks for your hospitality.
