No detail overlooked! A serene custom-designed studio retreat in the treetops of Volcano, Hawaii. Tree cottage includes a beautiful kitchen, spacious bathroom with indoor/outdoor shower, private driveway, top-level lanai off the living area for viewing the unique local flora. Interior is mid-century tropical with pristine hardwood floors, hanging rattan chair for daydreams, queen-sized bed, and bistro table setting provides an intimate setting for morning coffee, or evening dinner for two.
Relax in the tranquility of the ohi'a and hapu'u trees native to this unique part of the world, while enjoying your favorite creature comforts.
The tree cottage is 300 sq. feet, custom-designed and adorned by the host/owner providing a more personal experience for the guests. Amenities such as an easy to access entrance, beautiful decor, a well-appointed kitchen, consistent hot water, electricity, fluffy towels, ceiling fan and comfy bed make a luxurious take on the treehouse experience we all dream of experiencing.
Coffee, tea, and oatmeal are also provided for morning foraging. :)
The living area has glass french doors that welcome you in to the cottage. Once inside you'll be inspired by the beautiful pitched pine ceiling, large windows and 8" sliding glass doors providing a perfect vantage into the trees. At this height you can see the colorful birds flitting from tree to tree and the clouds rolling in from the coast.
The kitchen has hardwood flooring, custom cabinetry and quartz counter tops. It comes complete with a four-burner gas stove, small fridge, full-sized sink, coffee maker, and toaster oven.
The bathroom has a lovely tiled shower with pebble floor and a rain shower head for an incredible experience. The big windows, flower-shaped vessel sink, quartz counter tops, tiled floor, and fluffy bath linens provided give the bathroom the feeling of a beautiful, relaxing spa.
The outdoor garden is spotted with new, young plants but still evokes a feeling of privacy, peace, tranquility, and a change of pace from everyday life.
House water is potable and chemical-free. Piped in from the outdoor rain catchment system, the water is purified with a UV system and filtered.
The tree cottage was built by a local contractor, engaging local businesses for the materials. Shannon's hands-on management (even cleaning between guests!) and pride in ownership for the property results in a tree cottage guests can feel comfortable staying in.
*For the comfort and safety of guests, personal belongings and the property the exterior of building has surveillance monitoring.
