The Space

Picture yourself awakening to the songs of exotic birds and the comforting sounds of the rain forest. Feel the silken smoothness of hand-crafted exotic hardwood furniture under your fingertips. Imagine luxuriating in a huge hot tub surrounded by giant, primeval tree ferns, after a day hike in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

This is the Hale ‘Apapne experience. We invite you to join us in this beautiful, newly built home that will make your stay in Volcano enjoyable and comfortable.

We have a spacious living area with soaring cathedral ceilings, custom furniture, polished hardwood floors and natural ohia posts. There is a wood stove for our cool Volcano mornings, a TV, DVD player and bluetooth enabled stereo speakers in sitting area for entertainment.

Open kitchen area that is great for entertaining while you are cooking. Full electric stove. Full refrigerator. Includes dishwasher for easy cleanup. All the pots & pans that you need are available. Washer and dryer room off the kitchen.

Three bedrooms featuring high thread count sheets and thick comforters with locally themed print covers, artwork by local artist and windows overlooking the rainforest.

Master Suite: King-sized bed with en suite full bathroom with jacuzzi tub, his and her sinks and walk-in closet.
Bedroom one: Two full-sized beds w/shared full bathroom.
Bedroom two: Queen-sized bed w/shared full bathroom.
Downstairs toilet and sink.
All bathrooms have towels and hair dryers.

Two large lanais (covered decks) that you can enjoy the beautiful outdoors - even when it's raining. Gas grill for barbecues. Eight-person hot tube surrounded by native trees and tree ferns. Landscaping featuring tropical fruit trees and native plants. Large covered carport with high roof and basketball court. Swing in the yard

The location couldn't be more convenient for exploring the wonders of the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. We are located about 5 minutes away from the park entrance. The village of Volcano with coffee shop, general store, post office restaurants and local art gallery are all a few minutes walk away. If you stay for a Saturday, be sure to visit the Volcano farmer's market to pick up fresh produce to cook up!

  • Our stay at Hale Apapne was one of the most relaxing we've experienced. Not only is the house beautiful and immaculately maintained, but Adam and Mark have made the house very convenient to stay in. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in and was very well stocked, including delicious coffee and tea. The area is quiet and peaceful, and very conveniently located to visit the Volcano national park (a 5 min drive to the park). I would highly recommend this house to anyone!

  • This is a beautiful house in an excellent location for visiting Volcanoes National Park. The house and back yard feel entirely secluded, as though you are alone deep in the jungle (in a good way). In spite of this remote atmosphere, there are several good restaurants just a few minutes' drive away. We highly recommend Thai Thai with delicious and authentic food.

    It definitely gets chilly and the house can be humid and take a while to warm up, so fire up the wood stove, be sure to bring some warm clothes for indoors, and don't hesitate to use the dehumidifier.

  • 非常漂亮和宽敞的别墅,房子结构很通透,房间也打扫得很干净,周围树林环绕,很清静很有隐私。主卧的床垫非常舒服,每天早晨都可以在鸟叫声中醒来。厨房餐具调料很齐全,做饭很方便。阳台上BBQ的时候还可以享受花园的景色,尤其是本地的羊肉,用来BBQ味道很赞。晚上再泡个Jacuzzi就十分完美了。这里的经历绝对是这次旅行的亮点,强烈推荐!!

    An incredibly peaceful charming home in the jungle with lot of bird's song. We only wish we had stayed longer! Every inch of the house was immaculately clean and beautiful. Back porch is a perfect spot to relax. Kitchen is well stocked with anything you would need for cooking. Sitting in the hot tub on a chilly night is a treat! It truly made our Big Island stay memorable. We hope to come back soon. Mahalo!

  • Nice home and very friendly host. We were four and had more than enough space and everything we needed. Would definitely recommend this to everybody who likes to explore the very close Volcano National Park.

  • A stunning and extremely comfortable home. It feels even better than your own home. The pictures do the house justice and when you wake up in the morning and actually see the lush beauty surrounding you, you will be glad you stayed here. Every possible dish, supplies, bedding, laundry needs are met. The only thing you need to bring a some groceries to cook up or BBQ. It's only a 5 min drive to the volcano park. Don't forget to take advantage of the hot tub on a chilly night. Plenty of chopped wood in the shed to keep that woodstove pipping hot.

    I'll always remember this amazing house.

    Thanks Yasmeen! I am so glad you enjoyed our home. Our housekeeper, Dena, and I work hard to make it nice, and having built it myself, I really appreciate your comments.

  • It's hard to find words to describe this house: it's just amazing! We loved to stay here and recommend it highly.

  • Very quick response and the host was very accommodating of our same day request. There are a lot of properties in Volcano on Airbnb, but this one stood out as we browsed online and with good reason. The pictures are a good representation of what you get. A spacious, modern, comfortable home with all the amenities needed. With Volcanoes National Park a couple minutes away, we easily visited during the day and again at night. Staying here was one of the highlights of our time in Hawaii and I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting the park.

  • The house was exactly as it appears on AirBNB. The location is perfect for exploring Kilauea and the larger national park.
