Some comments from recent guests-
'i enjoyed my stay at 'hale sweet hale' very much.
the house is a well appointed two bedroom,nestled
in the jungle. the peace and solitude it offers are wonderful,
yet it's just minutes from the volcano. i especially enjoyed reading out on the back lanai looking out over the lawn to the jungle.
''There is no small detail you did not provide for. Thank you for sharing you idyllic hideaway. I especially enjoyed the orchids in the trees.'
“After a long trip halfway around the world, we could have had no better place to relax.
Everything was more than we could have hoped for. We were greeted with a warm welcome message and fresh supplies of everything we needed to feel right at home.
If you are in need of a true 'get away from it' without being too far away from creature comforts, this is the place to stay.”
'Hale Sweet Hale is truly a haven in the rainforest! Love the smell of the cedar, and the skylights make this place truly airy and bright.'
“It was so convenient for our visit to Kilauea National Park, being only 5 minutes from the entrance. We enjoyed the quiet and peaceful setting, surrounded by lush green ferns and lovely hydrangeas. It seemed so removed from everything, but it was just a short distance from the main highway. The cottage was so sweet and beautiful, and comfortable. We just loved it! We definitely would like to go back and stay for a longer period of time to experience more of this peaceful retreat.”

We found Hale Sweet Hale through the coconut wire. It took a lot of love and work to transform Hale Sweet Hale into what it is today- full of ALOHA. There are features here that you won't find at your typical vacation rental. Many things at Hale Sweet Hale have a unique story behind it and make it truly your home away from home.
We had a very pleasant 5-day stay at Hale Sweet Hale. The place is as promised, well equipped, clean and comfortable. The hot tub is a nice extra. The back yard and lanai are exceptional. Being literally 5 minutes from Volcano National Park is a treat. If you can arrive in daylight for the first time it will be easier to find, as the road is very small and very dark! .
We had a great stay and loved the cottage. The grounds and birds were wonderful. It did have the typical Volcano weather and you should turn the dehumidifier on early to keep the place warm. Once we found the heaters in the bedroom we were good. The hot tub is a great addition and we loved our evening soaks in it.
Wonderful stay with my 2 kids at this picture perfect cottage in the woods. Loved all the personal touches, which made it feel like home. Only things missing (at least for our stay): a lettuce dryer, and dry wood for the fireplace.
My companion and I arrived in the afternoon after spending six previous, activity packed days in Hilo/Mauna Kea. Merlenna's home was welcome respite - quiet, comfortable... It had exactly what we needed to recharge (and wash clothes for the second half of our trip). It was a great home base to explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We both slept soundly in the cool, dark bedrooms, and the rest of the home was well-appointed, too.
I would definitely stay here again.
This was a perfect house for us. We only had two nights in the Volcano area and the house was a great location. It was so peaceful and quiet, had everything we needed. Very difficult to find in the dark especially when the street sign for "Hale Street" wasn't there.
I was really impressed with the cleanliness of this vocation house! The hot tub was really awesome and very romantic. The only issue that was pretty minor is that the bedroom was pretty small and had no place to unpack.
This was a charming property, it was very small- and the three of us were a bit cramped with our suitcases. I don't think it really matters tho because you spend most of the time at the volcano, we stayed for two nights and that was plenty of time to see stuff at the park. The only really disappointing thing was that in the middle of our stay the hot tub was serviced/ turned off and took the entire day to heat up... We were really looking forward to it after a long day of hiking. I think at least we should have told before or the hot tub should have been serviced on a day when there were no guests. Other than it was a good property and we enjoyed our stay.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is less than a mile away. Spend the day exploring all the unique sites of the park. Visit the Farmers' Market at Cooper Center- lots of local grown produce and handcrafted items. You can view turtles at Black Sands beach and hike out to Green Sands beach at South Point.
