“Tranquil and Homely and perfect to explore the natural wonders of Hawaii”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A very comfortable base to explore Volcanoes National park. The markets in Volcano village on the Sunday morning were worth a visit, we picked up affordable and tasty meals to put in the fridge ready for after our night-time volcano viewings. The house was a welcome relief for the 3 children (9,7,2) who were able to play in the undercover outdoor area and gardens. The house was very clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend a trip to the Manua Kea Visitor Centre for the nightime star gazing just be sure to get there in time to watch the most amazing sunset. The kids enjoyed the snorkelling at Richardson Beach Reserve in Hilo- even saw turtles.

“Beautiful and comfortable”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Hale Apapane is beautiful, clean and very comfortable with lovely grounds. The kitchen is well stocked with all the necessities (plates, glasses, pans, etc). The only caution is that the three rooms have 1 king, 1 queen and 2 doubles, so plan sleeping arrangements accordingly. There is also a couch (that doesn't fold out) and a futon, which we used in the living room. The fireplace nicely warms up the house, and the hot tub is small but clean and nice. A very pleasant stay overall . . . .can't wait to go back!

“Incredible Island find”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This house was awesome. Don't let the price fool you. Places like this could easily go for $600, $700, $800 a night or more. 6 of us stayed there and it easily holds 8 people. Is a mile from Volcano National Park. Great amenities. Full kitchen, outdoor grill. wood burning stove, washer/dryer. Covered porch.

“Beautiful Home”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great time staying here for two nights this summer. The house is very spacious and well equipped. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are beautiful. The hot tub was great after a long day of hiking.

“Peaceful, comfortable base for Volcano National Park”

person found this review helpful

We loved our stay in this beautiful house. 5 minutes from the National Park and much more comfortable than a hotel. Would absolutely recommend this house as a great base for the area. The beds are really comfortable and it is great being able to have some space when you're travelling with family! Hot tub is a bonus :)

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This house looked exactly like the pictures. 3 large bedrooms all with double beds, a beautiful quiet setting with a jucuzzi. The house was very clean and well stocked with food and fruit. It was very close to the volcano National Park where we were able to watch the lava glow at night from Volcano House.
Unfortunately, we only had 1 night in the house, but would love to have stayed longer. It was beautiful.
