Volcano Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Aloha! E komo mai. Nou ka hale. Welcome to our Bid Island home, or hale (pronounced HA-LAY). Located in Volcano Village, and just minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, we invite you to make our house your home away from home during your next visit.

Hale Hubner is perfect for friends, couples, and small groups or families that wish to experience the Puna lifestyle at its best. We also offer a retreat for Kama'aina looking to get away. Comfortably nestled in the verdant hapu'u fern and ohia rainforest, you will find our location offers relaxing comfort and privacy all the while keeping you close to the variety nearby attractions the Big Island has to offer.

Our house is a cozy 750 sq ft studio-style custom-built 1 bed/1 bath that sleeps 2-4 people comfortably. The warm pine wood interior naturally juxtaposes the green views of lush vegetation visible from all the large picture windows throughout the house.

A spacious sun deck greets you as you exit the house, and provides excellent views of the vibrant stars during the dark evenings. On clear nights, the glow of Kilauea's Halema'uma'u crater is just visible through the tree line!

A master bed area is walled off for your privacy, and a queen-size futon in the main living area folds out to provide a second bed for additional travelers. The main living/sleeping area is located on the second level of the house and is only accessible by stairs; therefore, we are unfortunately not accessible for visitors with disabilities that prevent the climbing of steps. For families wishing to stay with us, we prefer at least one adult per child please.

We strive to provide a warm and inviting stress-free yet affordable alternative to the big resorts. We hope you like what you see here and choose Hale Hubner for you next visit to the Big Island. Please feel free to visit our website to see more of what Hale Hubner has to offer at halehubner.com Mahalo!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Review from TripAdvisor. "Wow! Our stay at Hale Hubner was amazing! It was more then what we expected. Unfortunately we only stayed there for 2 nights, it has everything for a long stay for 2 persons. The location is very private in the forest of Vulcano and the large windows showed this view in every room. The neighbourhood is very friendly with neightbourwatch. We loved everything. The friendly e-mails from the owners and personal touch with pictures of the family made us feel at home. Beautiful interieur with a relaxing sofa. Good wifi. The large balcony including a new gass bbq and easy chairs where very relaxing and convinient.The bed was soft with seperate electric blankets on the matras, for extra heating. Because I'm always cold I turned it on just a half an hour before jumping into bed, my husband liked it just the way it was. We didn't use the woodstove, but I can imagen the use of it is very cosy because it can be cold in the evening and night. The kitchen is fully suplied. If we ever return in the future we will definately stay here again. The town is small, but you have to visit Greg and Joyce with their kids at cafe Ohi'a to enjoy a delicious sandwich for lunch. Their kindness warmed our harts."

We are Tara and Matt Hubner. We currently live in Texas, but our hearts reside on the Big Island. We purchased our house in 2011 in hopes that we will live there permanently one day. We try to return as often as possible, but gladly open our home to you when we cannot be there to enjoy it.

Matt Hubner purchased this cottage in 2011

The National Park and the volcanoes of the Big Island hold a special place in our hearts. We love all that the park has to offer in its natural wonders. The town of Volcano is nicely situated adjacent to the park, but there is also so much more to do nearby that it makes for the perfect location to enjoy the Big Island. We love the beaches and the snorkeling/diving all within the distance of a short drive. We love the diverse nature of the people of the area and the aloha spirit that they truly share with those who don't try and bring the mainland go-go-go attitude with them. We love the nearby markets that you can find on a daily basis. We also enjoy the shops and modern amenities of the nearby towns and Hilo. It's hard to beat the cool weather at 4000 ft elevation. So whether you're interested outdoor activities, peace and relaxation, or restaurants and shopping; there's everything one needs within just a quick drive from here. All this plus the fact that there are little to no crowds makes it our favorite place in the world!

One of our favorite things to do is drive out at night to the Kilauea Crater overlook. It's only a 10-15 minute drive to the crater rim from our house, and the views of the glowing caldera are mesmerizing. We try to go out every night that we can, and often there are people playing music or dancing hula for Madame Pele, and this makes it quite an experience. We've found that on clear nights it is possible to see the glow from Kilauea from our lanai and from the back of our property. We enjoy ordering takeout from some of the nearby restaurants and dining on our lanai under the stars.

We started our Big Island vacation at this gorgeous, cozy cottage. The patio is as scenic and peaceful as the photos depict. It is a perfect location for exploring Volcano National Park. It's also an easy day trip to Hilo and the Southeast Puna area. Don't miss Kapoho Tide Pools if you like to snorkel.

PERFECT CHOICE IN VOLCANO

  • 5 of 5
I picked Hale Hubner based on its high ratings on VRBO. It was my first time using the site. Honestly, it was an incredible experience, and I wish we could have stayed longer. The spacious, charming cottage was cozy and unique. All of the pictures, descriptions and amenities were exactly as described. We have recommended Hale Hubner to friends, family, and coworkers.

Owner's Response: That's wonderful that we were you're first experience trying out a vacation rental by owner! We first used VRBO on our very first trip to Hawaii because it was an affordable way to see different parts of the island from an almost local perspective. I'm always glad to hear we had another satisfied party, but I'm really ecstatic to know you had a great first VRBO experience! It opens up a world of new places to stay all over the world. Thank you for the recommendations, and please do come back for a longer visit! You'll find there's so much more to do and we'd love to have you stay again. Aloha!

AMAZING PLACE TO STAY.

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely place to stay. The owners have thought of everything to anticipate needs. The place was immaculate and extremely comfortable. We will do it again and would not change a thing with our choice to stay. It was beautiful beyond description. Thanks again for all your courtesy shown.

Owner's Response: I can’t be happier that our home was such a perfect fit for you. I only wish we could have accommodated you for the full amount of time you needed! We don’t have the cheapest cleaning fee of all the rentals; but from the comments we’ve received (including yours), I believe that our housekeeper is worth every dollar. She works very hard for us and keeps our home in beautiful shape. I certainly do hope you come and visit our home again. It was a pleasure corresponding with you.

COZY PLACE TO EXPLORE VOLCANO NATIONAL PARK

  • 5 of 5
Ideal location to explore Volcano National Park, Puna and Black/Green Sand beach. Cozy place in the rain forest, just minutes from the park allows visiting the park during night time without a lot of driving. Description of the owner 100% accurate. Highly recommended. We did stay 3 nights, should have booked another night.

We continue to strive for a better experience for ourselves and our guests, so we can’t wait for you to see how we’ve further improved when you return for 4 nights. Mahalo nui!

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this cottage for 3 nights and two glorious days in April, 2014. The cottage is exactly as described. Well equipped and in a beautiful location. The bed was comfortable and even had a mattress warmer for the cool evenings. The cottage is a great place from which to visit the volcano. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to vist the volcano and/or sights in the Puna area.
