Interaction with guests
We live close to the rentals, but not on the grounds. We supply you with a number of methods to get in touch with us in the confirmation email. Though we may be hiking in the park ourselves in cel dead areas, we check for calls, texts, and email quite often.

We enjoy answering questions about the park, suggesting hiking trails based on your needs, and of course, offer birding advice if wanted.

We loved staying in the Hiker's rain forest retreat. Volcano was a great place to stay for easy access to the national park. We were just minutes away. The garden was beautiful and so was the accommodation. The hikers retreat was so peaceful, we just wanted hang out with the door open and listen to the sound of the birds....

What an amazing place to spend 3 nights! The house is fabulous as the garden and pond. It has everything we needed... even a double shower! The owners were always available to answer our questions! Our little paridise at night fall! A must!

Management response:

Great guests - left the rental spotless, too!

While my girlfriend was reluctant to stay at a vacation rental property (typically opting for resorts), I am pleased to say that the Hiker's Retreat was one of her favorite places we have stayed on any of the Hawaiian islands. The small guest house was exactly as advertised. It was quaint and comfortable. My girlfriend thought the property looked better...

About the neighbourhood
Volcano Village is just outside the Volcanoes National Park boundary, minutes from the visitor center. The Village has food, gas, atms, a number of fine restaurants, art galleries, and more, and is home to many artists, scientists, and those of a spiritual nature, a really open minded and friendly community.

The park entrance which is about 2 miles on down the highway. And speaking of weather, we get everything from sun to clouds to heavy fog and mist to rain... it's very unpredictable, so plan ahead.
Getting around
Though you can get to the village or park from the airport by bus, you really need a car or tour company to experience how large and varied the park really is.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Hilo International Airport (ITO): 42.0 km
The Hiker's Retreat is in Volcano Village, just outside the park entrance. Actual driving time is about 5 to 10 minutes depending on route.

Hilo Airport (ITO) and the town are about 30 miles north of the park entrance, about a 45 minute drive.

Kona Airport (KOA) is over two hours away, so plan on enough daylight hours for travel if you are arriving there.
