Excellant stay !!

  • 5 of 5
I was a little worried at first being inland, we've always rented on the beach. Boy was I surprised! This house is amazing! Every detail was thought of, from shampoo to spices. The house is in the middle of the rain forest. Now I'm no "newbie" to Hawaii, I have been to the rain forest before but never actually stayed there before. It was a little dis concerning the first night. It was black as tar, you couldn't see your hand in front of your face. The house is cozy and very comfortable so we stayed in. The morning broke and what a sight to see!! Ferns 20 feet tall! We were mesmerized. Then we stated to relax and enjoy our new forest home. I have never felt so relaxed. My body & head let go of everything. I was in bliss for the first time since I could remember. This place has something about it that captivates your heart. I could have stayed forever.

Beautiful 4 bedroom hideaway near Volcano's National Park

Beautiful 4 bedroom hideaway near Volcano's National Park
  • 4 of 5
Comfy home with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Well appointed kitchen with grill on porch. Also on porch is laundry room. House was neat and clean and nicely decorated. Wifi was easy to access but cell phones did not work well. The house did provide a land line phone. There is a beautiful window wall by the dining table in the great room that looks out onto the backyard where there is a little hiking trail. When we arrive the house was cold and it was nice to be able to turn on the gas woodstove to warm the house. It worked nicely. The house is about 1 mile from Volcano's National Park where there are some great hikes. Also, the glassblowing studio down the road, 2400 Fahrenheit was a must see. Had a great time and felt very relaxed. Only improvement I would make, the house smelled a little musty and rug in master bedroom was damp, not sure if there is a leak somewhere. It had been raining.

A little tired

  • 3 of 5
We enjoyed our visit to the Ohana House but felt the house was a little tired and worn down. On the positive side, the house is very close to Volcano National Park and it is very easy to travel to Volcano Village where the thai food is spectacular! It was also pretty easy to find the Ohana house. The directions were very good, as was the other area info the owners sent us. We appreciated that. On the downside, there was a musty smell as soon as we opened the door. The dishes must have been washed but not dried before being put away, as the bowls and pots had pools of water in them. The sheets on 2 of the beds obviously had not been changed, as there were long hairs on them. The furniture in the main room looks lovely in the photo but it is worn and tired looking in person. Overall, it was an average experience.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you were not thrilled with your stay at the Ohana House. We've been renting the house for five years and truly this is the first less-than-glowing review we've received and we take that quite seriously. Since we live on the mainland, we rely on our guests' comments to guide us in the management of the property. Thank you for letting us know where we can improve.
If there has been one area that our guests consistently rave about it's the cleanliness of the home, so your issue of the "obviously unchanged beds" is a surprise. I will talk to our housekeeper and see if she perhaps used a substitute that day to get the house ready for your visit. Of course unmade beds are unacceptable!
As you can imagine, all houses in the rainforest have to deal with moisture, and we take extra steps to ensure that the house is comfortable, dry and completely free of mold. I will also make sure that our de-humidifier is on and doing its job before guests arrive.
This is the first comment we've received that the furniture is looking worn. Thanks you for alerting us. We continuously invest in the home to make it one of the best vacation rentals in Volcano, and it would seem that new furniture will be next on our list! In the past year we've purchased a new water tank, on-demand water heater, and new gas heater/fireplace to make our guests more comfortable.
Thank you again for the input. Mahalo.

Immersion Experience

  • 5 of 5
We felt we were living like locals in the rain forest. This property was a well maintained and clean accommodation in a very convenient location to Volcano National Park and local restaurants. The property had all of the amenities you needed, including a very well stocked kitchen. We enjoyed the view out the picture window and the nice large dining table. The sofa and love seat could have been more comfortable – but that only motivated us to get out and see the National Park. Great value for the money and we will plan on staying there again when visiting Volcano.

Wonderful stay at Ohana House

  • 5 of 5
We are four couples from Washington State who spent two nights in September at the Ohana House. The home is immaculate, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. A picture window beside the dining room table looks right out into the rain forest. It was also very well stocked with items we might need, including flashlights. (The owner says the flashlights tend to disappear, so bring your own as well.) We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others. Be sure to arrive at the house before dark because it would be hard to find at night for the first time.
We ate one night at the Thai restaurant, which was very good. The other night we barbequed steaks at the house. Even though the grocery stores in Volcano are small, both of them had Big Island steaks in their freezer sections. And they were great. The other restaurants looked good too.
Be sure to go back to the Jagger Overlook in the Park after dark to see the orange glow over the active portion of the crater. It was awesome. Take flashlights because there are no lights left on. We were advised to go after 8 so all the tour groups would be gone. We also drove to both ends of the Chain of Craters Road and really enjoyed seeing the vast expanses of various lava flows. Finally, the art gallery next to the visitor center features Big Island artists and is wonderful.
