Volcano House Rental Photos and Description

Hale Aloha 2 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

An affordable vacation rental house located in Volcano Village, Hawaii. Relax in our beautifully decorated Hale Aloha home beside the fireplace.

Hale Aloha is a spacious two bedroom/ two bath two-story house featuring a large fireplace, and a wrap around balcony. The balcony allows guests to have a beautiful view of the 1/2 acre lush landscaping that surrounds the house. The grounds are landscaped with tropical flowers, wild orchids, Hapu Ferns, Royal Ginger, Ohia Trees, bromeliads, hibiscus, gardenias, and hydrangeas that thrive in this rich environment. The owners have worked extensively to have the home blend into the forest, and surroundings.

The house is newly refurbished, and features new appliances, fresh paint, custom lighting fixtures, tile flooring, large screen TV with entertainment system all ready for your enjoyment. It has a covered carport for parking, and an entrance from the garage into the house. Hale Aloha is a non-smoking vacation rental. The house is situated in a artist community, and boasts many different styles of art to choose from.

The house is located 2 miles from the entrance of Volcanoes National Park, the easiest place in the world to enjoy viewing active flowing lava. Visit our unique winery for some wine tasting. Play a round of golf or two at the only place on earth to play on top of an active volcano, the Volcano Golf & Country Club.

Hale Aloha vacation rental house is located in the artist colony of Volcano Village in Volcano, Hawaii. At an altitude of 3500' feet the village boasts many different features not found in typical Hawaii. The village is made up of artisans of many different disciplines including painting, sculpting, glass blowing, Hawaiian hand quilting, and photography to name a few.

So come vacation & stay awhile, a day, a week, or a month. Immerse yourself in this magical, tropical place we call Hawaii to relax, and replenish your soul. We know you will fall in love with the beauty, and splendor that Madame Pele has to offer while visiting the mother of creation.

The are a handful of good eating establishments to choose from or visit our local organic farmers market within walking distance from the house every Sunday morning at the Cooper Community Center. The residence is close to the famous Black Sand, and Green Sand beaches of the Big Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We and the children greatly enjoyed our stay. We stayed 3 nights here and 3 nights in Hilo. If we had it to do over again, we would stay 6 nights at Hale Aloha and 0 at Hilo Seaside Hotel. Volcano is not that far from Hilo and Hale Aloha felt like living at home. House was clean. Appliances functioned well. Appreciated the dishwasher and washer/dryer convenience. For meals we alternated precooked dinners and prewashed veggies we brought from Costco Kona with dining out in Volcano, Pahoa (Luquin's Mex Food), and Hilo (Naung Mai Thai Food and Ken's House of Pancake).”

Owner's Response: Aloha we appreciate your kind words about our lovely Hale Aloha. We have just visited the house and checked both recliners on the main couch. They worked fine during our stay, but if the rug is too close to the couch it will prevent the recliners from opening correctly. We apologize if you had any issues during your stay. Thank you again and we are glad you had an enjoyable stay.

It was everything we had hoped for and more. Lovely , sparkling clean, quiet except for one neighboring dog that barked at night. But we have that at home. We did not use the heaters and we're fine. Plenty of kitchen equipment for cooking. Having all the windows was wonderful.Can't think of anything we needed.

Well appointed kitchen. Lovely yard.

  • 4 of 5

We were generally very comfortable. Rooms are very warm in the late afternoon; ceiling fans would make it much more comfortable at that time. Otherwise, a very nice place to stay.
