I have spent two days at Hale Palila and this place is amazing.
The location is great, only 3 minutes away from the Volcano National park by car and in a nice jungle-like setting close to the Golf course. This architect designed house was refurbished recently and my girlfriend and I were actually some of the first to book the place. Everything was nice and clean and perfect. The kitchen was convenient. The fireplace was nice but there were only a few wood logs and the weather was rainy so we run out of dry wood quite early.
All in all a very pleasant stay and I totally recommend this place.
We had a great stay at Hale Pikake. It was perfect for myself and two friends, because we each had a separate bedroom. The host left the lights on for us, which was very nice for our late arrival. We were very close to Volcano National Park.
Merlennas Cottage ist grossartig: luxuriös eingerichtet, so dass es an nichts fehlt; phantastisch gelegen so nahe am Volcanoes National Park - ein Ort, sich rundherum wohl zu fühlen.
Danke, dass wir da sein konnten!

Hostess was super easy to connect with! Although the heat was off when we arrived it didn't take long to warm up. Great value for a family looking to explore volcano national park!
Great little get away in the rain forest. Very close to the National Park which made visiting the park nice as we stretched it out over a couple days. Hot Tubbing in the rain was awesome.
This was our first airbnb experience and we could not be any happier. We chose this house because it was located very close to Hawaii Volcano National Park. The house was perfect for a family of 4 and we had ample room to spread out and make ourselves comfortable. Thomas was very personable and we enjoyed his pristine property. We loved having the kitchen to cook meals and we packed a picnic using one of the coolers. There were lots of magazines in the house to find out activities to check out - but most of all we enjoyed just hanging out after a long day driving around. There is a big sign outside of the house so it is easy to find. The nights are full of the frogs chirping but we enjoyed it. Thank you for having us! We would recommend this house to our friends and family! Aloha, The Goodgame Ohana
Great location to see the volcanoes.... The tropical garden is full of orchids and other exotic flowers, it's a quiet, idyllic location. We loved our stay!
We loved this magical little spot. The kitchen is well set up for cooking your own meals. We loved the CDs, all the music really goes with the ambiance. Bed is super comfortable. We were given yummy papayas with lime for breakfast the next day. The place feels very private even though you are on the same property as the owners.
This is definitely the most ideal place for couples going honeymoon in Hawaii! The elegant decorations created a romantic atmosphere, and the perfect album selections gave us very relax background musics.
If you want to go hiking in the volcano national park, it's only 5 to 10 minutes drive from this lodge to the visitor center, steam vents, Volcano House, and Jaggar Museum. The convenience of location gave us more leisure time to enjoy the amazing attractions in the national park and had no worry for driving back to the accommodation at night. If you want to spend several days to explore the South or the West South areas of Big Island, Boy and Debra's Place will be a good choice to stay!
Arriving at Boy and Debra's was like entering a fairytale world. Not only were we awestruck by the rainforest pathways and beautiful surroundings, but arriving in the cabin we found it exactly apportioned to suit two weary travelers. Comfortable and cozy, welcoming and warm. As a launch point for all Volcano has to offer I would recommend to any traveler.
Merlenna and her family and friends were good guests. They are charming and independent, took wonderful care of our place. I recommend them to other AirBnB hosts.
