Volcano, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
This home-away-from-home vacation-rental cottage is on a forested acre of land with two other cottages. Kahi Malu shares a driveway with our studio cottage (Kate's Volcano Cottage, listed separately) but each has its own parking space and privacy. The kitchen is well stocked with the less-perishable breakfast foods and lots of cookware. The cottages are an eight-minute drive from the entrance of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (HVNP).
Kahi Malu is filled with information about HVNP, with books, DVDs, and maps offering insights into the Park.

We really enjoyed our stay at Kahi Malu! Kathryn was so very knowledgeable about everything we wanted to see and do-what a help that was. The cottage is so very accommodating and comfortable. We loved the cast iron fireplace-especially during the cool mornings. It is...More

Aloha Bob, Mahalo for your kind remarks. I enjoyed meeting you and Cathy (and showing you the Koa trees, on the morning you left)! Perhaps you can return for another stay, in future. A hui hou aku (together again soon)! Kathryn

We have returned to Kahi Malu for three stays over the course of 10 years. Kathryn and Kenneth's love of this restored house is evident in the way it has been maintained and updated. From the gigantic tree ferns and flowers outside to the cozy...More
