Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 12
Volcano, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii

Welcome to our brand new house!

We built our tropical hideaway ourselves with love and care (and a tad of perfectionism!) and are now finally ready - as of July 2016 - to open its doors to you.

We're located on six acres of lush Volcano rainforest just seven minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and five minutes to Volcano Village.

Our two-story house has 1800 square feet interior space plus an exterior deck. There are four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a number of common areas.

They have definitely put a lot of love and attention into it. We were staying in Resorts on different islands, so this was a breath of fresh air to be in such a beautiful and unique location. Their home is more beautiful in person than the photos show. We loved everything about the house, and the amazing outside! It was very close to Volcano National Park, and there were some great restaurants that were close. We ate at Ohelo Cafe, and Thai Thai Restaurant, they are pretty close to the house, and close to each other, and the food was good!!. We loved staying there, just wish we had more time, truly loved the beauty and peace. Rachel and Ted were wonderful hosts, they met us when we arrived and were very friendly! We had great communication from the start. I'm very picky about where I...
