Volcano, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
In the Hawaiian language, a 'kipuka' is a kind of oasis. It can be an island of forest surrounded by lava fields, or an opening within a forest, or even a dwelling, a home within the forest. This is our Kipuka -- a custom-designed cottage, a vacation home for you here on Hawai'i Island (''the Big Island'') just minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Huge windows look out onto the native forest. The loft makes you feel like you're in a nest among the birds. We also have a fully-equipped kitchen and deep bathtub. We look forward to sharing our secluded cottage with you. Questions?

We wanted to be free from technology and just relax. That was easily accomplished here. They do have WiFi for looking up places to visit or eat. The bed was comfortable and the ammenities...

Our family of three (two adults, a four year old daughter) stayed at Kipuka Cottage for two days. We fell instantly in love with it and felt at home. As there was pouring rain in Volcano, the cozy and well-equipped house felt even cozier. We were happy to find pre-dried wood to burn in the fireplace (wood directly from outside...

Stayed here for three nights and loved this Cottage! Absolutely quite neighbourhood. Cosy atmosphere, nicely decorated, spacious, clean and excellently equipped cottage. Large windows on either side make you feel as if you are in the middle of the trees.The bedroom located on the upper floor with windows all around was our favourite spot. (felt like sleeping in the trees!!!)...

Management response:

Aloha S. We're so glad you loved our little nest in the rainforest. Sorry it took so long to get a fire going in the wood stove. With recent heavy rains, we've started bringing more wood inside. We hope to have you with us again one day! A Hui Hou, (Until Next Time) Bill

About the neighbourhood
Kipuka Cottage is a 7-minute drive from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, complete with its own erupting volcano which you can drive up to and safely watch from several park viewing places. There are also many miles of hikes, ranging from short walks to back-country camping treks up the mountain and down to the sea.

Also, just a few minutes from our Kipuka Cottage is friendly little Volcano village, with two general stores, and a few good restaurants ranging from fine continental dining and Thai cuisine to takeout sandwiches and soups. If you're here on a Sunday, don't miss the community market at Cooper Center with lots of fresh and prepared local dishes and products.
