We stayed at Hale Hubner for a full week and felt we were in a private getaway. We love rain forests and Hale Hubner exceeded all our hopes for a wonderful rain forest stay. In the mornings many wonderful bird songs filled our ears. We were looking for accessibility to Volcano National Park and it turned out to be surprisingly close by. This made it easy to visit glowing night time viewing sites to check on the crater's activity or visit the park multiple times since the $10 pass is good for one week. The owner had great tips and ideas for activities such as the Sunday early morning Farmer's Market in Volcano Village. What fun to taste authentic Hawai'ian food and excellent Kau coffees and talk to the locals. From this location we thoroughly explored the eastern side of the island from the north to the south on day trips and each night drove back to Volcano Village for the refreshing temperatures that 4,000 ft elevation has to offer. We appreciated the comfortable bed, refreshing temperatures and being able to sleep with all the windows open and all the covers on. The kitchen had all we needed-we prepared many meals there, the WiFi service was fast and there was a binder with great information about the property and what to do. As this was our first visit to Hawai'i, we were very pleased with how well Hale Hubner met our needs. The pictures in the listing show the lush vegetation that we could see out the amazing picture windows. The property was clean, inviting and well kept. The owner was very prompt answering questions and informative. I would recommend this property to my family and friends.
