The house was extremely clean and comfy. I regret that we just stay there for a night. So great. Don't miss this one. Perfect place to stay !
Our stay was great! Really nice place, very close to volcano national park. Enjoyed every bit of our stay :)
We had a fantastic stay at this location. The house is beautiful and very clean. There is a ton of space and the patio was an awesome place to hang out and enjoy the view. There's no AC, but that was no problem because the temps are cool and you can open the windows to catch a breeze. We really liked that we were 5 minutes from Volcano National Park. We went during the day and again at night to see the red plume. It was great! There are also a few shops and places to eat across the street, which was nice. I would suggest that you bring some groceries or snacks with you, though. This area is a lot different from the resorts and the cities around the island. But, if you forget, the host leaves a basket of fruit for you. We REALLY appreciated that! Overall, a great stay!
We had a great time. The house and location are just breathtaking and so convenient for volcano.
Thank you :)
This was an absolutely terrific find. The location was perfect for exploring Volcano national Park. In fact, it was even in walking distance to several restaurants. The home was secluded and quiet. Our group of four adults and two children found the place to be outstanding. The setting in the rain forest was spectacular. Children especially liked the hot tub, basketball court, and provided sidewalk chalk. The adults enjoyed the welcome coffee and fruit. This place gets my strongest recommendation.
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.
