My stay at Hale Kipa Fern Forest was wonderful! The yurt is definitely one of the most unique places I’ve stayed in plus it’s incredibly nicely decorated, clean, cozy and filled with amenities! The snacks, coffee, soft towels and comfy bed really added to my stay. Gypsy and Don were great hosts, greeted me upon arrival and were available to answer any questions. The yurt is definitely away from the touristy area(which I loved) but still a quick 15 minute drive to Volcanoes National Park and not too far from Hilo either. This would be a great place to stay for an adventurous couple, small family or even a solo traveler! I would definitely recommend it and hope to come back someday.
Brand new yurt is cute and cozy plus it has its own lanai and bar-b-que. I like how it is off the grid yet had all the modern amenities. I felt totally comfortable and safe and it was fun to be "living in the round". Clean, quiet and out of the mayhem of Hilo.
A great location for exploring the Volcano National Park. The host and hostess were very nice and willing to give tips on where to go and what to do. I would definitely go back.
I spent four enjoyable days in the yurt. It is cute and cozy with everything I needed for my holiday. The location is close to both Volcano and Hilo. I would definitely come back. The yurt is brand new, and is a unique way to get a slice of Hawaiian flavor. it is nicely equipped for a vacation. I felt totally comfortable with the setup, and loved "living in the round".
It was a rainy week, and falling asleep to the sound of rain on the roof was wonderful. The hosts were very nice and super-responsive when I had questions. The yurt was distant enough from the house to allow for privacy. Highly recommend this place!
Had an amazing stay at this beautiful yurt! Better than any hotel I've stayed in. Luxurious yet comfortable. The hosts were very friendly. The location is perfect - close to the Volcanoes National Park and yet not too far from Hilo.
