About Merlenna Higby

We built this home in 2011. As long time residents of Oahu, we find Volcano Village the perfect place for an escape from Oahu's busy pace.

Why Merlenna Higby chose Volcano

Volcano Village offers a quiet small town atmosphere, yet only 45 minutes from Hilo.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the cool weather at this elevation and love to go on hikes, learning about the forest life in this unique area. The Farmer's Market on Sunday mornings is always a treat.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This cottage is one of the best places we stayed at during our trip to big island. It looks even better than on the pictures! We were just a couple, but the cottage is even big enough for two couples or a family. It's hidden in the forest, very romantic and you have a bit of luxury. It's the style of cottage you want to spent Christmas Eve. Just biutiful'

Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5
The good - Kaluhe Cottage is located at the end of private road and feels like you are in Rainforest all alone. The cottage has been completely renovated - new beautiful hard floors, two very comfortable bedrooms, and a great bathroom with a massive rainfall showerhead. The kitchen and fridge are well stocked with condiments, utensils, and coffee items. The cottage is virtually at the entrance to the park and is an easy drive to Hilo and the observatory.

The OK - Due to the location on the island and because we visited in early December, the cottage was relatively cold. We tried using the wood burning stove however the wood was wet and didn’t burn well. Also, the original contact was with the owner and several months later management was turned over to a rental company. This transition caused unneeded confusion, phone calls, and emails (as well as stress) just weeks before our arrival. Everything turned out fine and there were no issues once we were at the cottage.

The good outweighs the bad and we would certainly stay here again.

A wonderful place in Volcano

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful little cottage that's central to everything but feels a million miles away. Wonderful design. Clean, well appointed, and accurately described. Cozy but not small. Simple but romantic. Priscilla has thought of everything you might need or want and she's very easy to work with. We spent tons of time in the Park and it was the perfect location for it. Mahalo! We definitely will return (and stay longer).

Also, check out the Higher Taste food truck outside the Rainforest Gallery in Volcano. Excellent!! (Vegetarian but not just for vegetarians.)

Great home base for our visit to Volcano

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four spent 3 nights at Kaluhe Cottage while visiting Volcanoes National Park and the surrounding areas. Priscilla was wonderful to deal with while arranging our stay, and we felt very comfortable that the cottage would met our needs after speaking with her. The listing and photos of the cottage are accurate, but do not do it justice! We felt like we were at our own secret hideaway in the rainforest. The house is unique, and very cozy, with all of the amenities that one might need readily available. Although the cottage itself is quite secluded, it is only a short drive (or walk) to the shops and restaurants of Volcano Village, and about five minutes to the National Park. We would certainly stay at Kaluhe Cottage again if we are lucky enough to return to Volcano.

Clean and Quiet Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience with VRBO, and we stayed three nights in this delightful cottage tucked right into the Hawaiian forest. It was clean and new, and well-stocked with attractive linens, books, and kitchen ware. Everything felt clean and new (in extreme contrast to another property we stayed at later). The place is at the end of a short road, with no other homes in sight, so it feels extremely private. The bed was so soft and comfortable that I would like to buy a similar mattress of my own. The location near the national park was excellent, and the Hilo coast is close. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this cottage for a week in early December, for a much-needed vacation. This was the perfect choice. The cottage is nestled in the woods, and other than the pleasant sound of singing birds, was completely quiet. It is just minutes from the entrance to the National Park. The owner was very helpful, and the cottage was spotless and well-represented online. As an added bonus, the cottage came fully equipped, with books, games, and DVDs for entertainment in the evening or on a rainy day, as well as with guides to the island's sights and activities.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for letting us to stay at such a wonderful home. It rained both days of our stay, but it was rather romantic to stay in this charming house surrounded by the rush rainforest. We enjoyed the quietness and warm fire very much. I especially loved the tropical greens and flowers like arts framed by the large windows. Everything in the house was super clean and beautifully decorated. Kitchen equipments and utencils are also clean and well prepared. The location is good, too, while completely secluded by the rainforest, it is right by the Kilauea Lodge and within walking disance from restaurants and shops. Thanks again to the manager, Priscilla, and the owners.
