The Owner purchased this house in 2007
My husband and I fell in love with the beauty of the Hawaiian highlands with its unique rainforest growing on the slopes of an active volcano and the magical properties of Hawaii's 'Healing Isle.' We've furnished Ohana house to be the perfect home base to explore this fascinating region. You'll find Ohana house has all the comforts of home - a world away!
The property is very secluded and quiet. You have views of the rainforest with its giant tree ferns, ohia trees and wild ginger right out your window. The house is roomy and bright with all the comforts of home.
The house was so handy to Volcano National Park. The house was very very clean and so toasty warm. We all recommend it highly! Fun toys for kids.
The owner is so friendly and welcoming. Great place
We appreciated Becky sharing her home with us! It was truly a "home away from home". We were able to do so much at HVNP because we were only 4 miles away. We did all the Day Hikes that the NP recommends and some extras. We enjoyed the Kilauea Iki Trail the most, including the Lava Tube. The most challenging was the Hilina Pali Trail to Ka'aha. It was easy to see the glowing caldera in the Kilauea Crater at night with such a short trip back to "home".
The kitchen is large and easy to use, so much storage area. We enjoyed the grill and having a washer & dryer convenient to use. The rooms are all separate enough to accommodate other couples or two or more families (four separate bedrooms). Everything worked out very well! We'd stay here again and recommend it to others!
Ohana House is a great base camp for trips to Volcano National Park. We stayed just three nights and got to spend two full days exploring the Park. The house is at a great location - quiet but only 2-3 minutes from the main road. Nice rooms and comfy beds.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Just minutes from Volcano National Park, the Ohana House is perfectly situated in the highlands of the Big Island of Hawaii amidst thousands of acres of ancient rainforest. At 3,500 foot altitude, Volcano enjoys a temperate climate year-round and without the insects or heat of the coastal towns. The quaint village of Volcano has restaurants, galleries, a winery, golf course and shops for all your needs. A quick 30 minute drive takes you to Hilo, Hawaii's second largest city. Lava flows, waterfalls, black sand beaches, thermal-heated ponds and snorkeling are all less than an hour's drive away.
