    Hale 'Apapane is a large, well decorated home located near the heart of Volcano Village and 1 mile from Volcano National Park. It has 2.5 baths, 3 bedrooms, 4 beds, a large living area, and a 4 person hot tub. We have a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, hot tub, back deck with a gas grill, and a covered basketball court. The house is set in the native forest with giant Hapu‘u ferns, ‘o‘hia trees, and native birds all around.

    My wife and I moved here in 2006 with our kids, designed and built this house with other family. We lived here for the next few years, worked on the landscaping, and decorated it with local art and photography. The house has its own solar energy and filtered, drinkable catchment water.

    The house has a open floor plan downstairs and lots of windows to look out on the rainforest. It is a good layout for large groups or families as it facilitates connection, but also has private feeling bedrooms upstairs that have some separation from each other. The master bedroom has its own bathroom, and there is another full bathroom upstairs for the other two bedrooms. We have a laundry room with a washer and dryer, a smart TV with high speed wifi.

    The covered basketball court is a big hit with families with kids, as it does rain in Volcano often. We have some board games and toys as well. The back deck is set looking out on the rainforest and lush landscape and the hot tub is a great place to unwind after a day of activity at Volcanoes National Park or somewhere else.

    We are a 5 minute drive to Volcanoes National Park and a 2 minute drive to Volcano Village. Volcano is a cute little town with a few restaurants, general stores, a community center, playground, and a nice farmers market on Sundays.

    Volcano is at 3500 feet in a high elevation tropical rainforest, so it is never too hot. It can be chilly and damp depending on the weather, so it is nice to have the mini split heater and wood stove....

    We had a short stay on the Big Island, and this place was perfect! We loved the jungle setting of this house. The house fit our 4 adults and 4 kids pretty well, the only possible thing could have been a pullout couch for the youngest kids. However, that was a very minor. The kitchen is stocked with enough equipment to make what you want. The layout and decorations were very nice. The driveway was narrow for our 15 passenger van, but felt very secluded, and we loved it. The yard was beautiful and there were pheasants and chickens and lizards all around. The kids loved the covered basketball court, hot tub, and swing. The deck and grill were a nice addition to this house. You are within a few minutes of Volcano National park and a short distance to Hilo. I am very grateful we were able to stay here, and wished we could have stayed longer. Mahalo!

    We were 7 - grandparents, parents and children - twins (8) and a 4 yr old. We were all comfortable and had lots of space. The house feels like it is in a wonderful jungle with lush green plants and birds and pheasants around us. We didn’t get to use the hot tub because of our timing but wish we had. The house is well thought out with all that you might need for entertainment- especially a child. The basketball court was a huge hit with everyone especially to be able to be outside when the rain came. Hosts were very communicative and quick to answer questions or give suggestions for meals and seeing the area and national park. We really enjoyed our stay- great drinking water!

    It was a dream come true to see the active lava on this trip. This home was the perfect base with its proximity to the park. The home itself is beautiful and the outdoor areas were great. It rained most of our time there but we enjoyed the covered porches and basketball area.
