Hale Mahina, meaning house of the moon, is conveniently located about two miles south past the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in the Volcano Golf Course and Country Club Division. It is nestled among the Ohia trees in one of the worlds most beautiful forests. Enjoy the crisp mountain air at the crest of the sunny side of Volcano.
This cozy 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is built in the Plantation Cottage style with an open floor plan.
Rooms are large, comfortable and clean, and our fully equipped kitchen allows you to cook in. Area farmers markets daily in Hilo and Sundays Open Market at Volcano offer produce at its best along with island crafts. Think fresh papaya every morning. The Volcano Winery is 539 steps away from the house where you can view the vineyards and enjoy wine tastings. If you choose not to cook in, Volcano Village has several restaurants serving lunch and dinner and there are also two small country grocery stores. ATM's are available here.
The Volcano Golf Course is a beautiful 18 hole course in the view of Mauna Loa (13,680') with the clubhouse restaurant serving breakfast and lunch.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park offers a visitors center to guide you through the vastness of this incredible National Park. Daily volcano activity is available here for day and night viewing. Tour by car or walk/hike the miles of trails while hearing the songs of the native forest birds. You will learn about our local active Volcano, Kilauea at Jagger Museum.
Sea Mountain Golf Course and Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, where you might see Green sea turtles, is a beautiful 35 minute drive. Hilo is a 45 minute drive where you will find waterfalls, shopping, beaches and Botanical Gardens.
The area also has several exceptional art galleries which shouldn't be missed.
As cocktail hour approaches, watch from your lanai as the sun sets behind Mauna Loa, while the colorful neighborhood kalij pheasants scurry to their night time nests. As the cool night air descends upon the village, snuggle up to the warmth of the gas log fire place. Do venture out after dark to see the stars on our back deck or take a hike in the park to see the latest lava activity. You certainly won't be disappointed.
Frank is originally from Hilo Hawaii and Cheryl from Minnesota. We purchased our home in Volcano 2007 and plan to use it as a retirement retreat in the future. We love the solitude of the area.
Cheryl Nathaniel purchased this house in 2007
Frank and I have lived in HOT climates all of our 40+ years of marriage and were looking for a mild climate where a jacket can be worn. We have lived in places where high 90's or triple digit temps aren't unusual. Volcano fits the bill exactly plus as a artist/quilter I find it a perfect place to create.
The peace and quiet of Hale Mahina Cottage and having a home to entertain our family and friends while we are visiting the Big Island of Hawai'i.
This is a review sent via our email in regards to our cottage -she asked me to post it for her.
"What a wonderful place to stay in Volcano for a week!!!. We wished we had been at Hale Mahina Cottage for a much longer time. But we'll come back for sure. Our son from Honolulu came over for a weekend. He was - as well as we were - fascinated by the amenities, above all the electric blankets and the good working fireplace. So nice to enjoy the cool nights and a cozy breakfast room in the morning. We loved to watch the apapane in the Ohia tree while having our meals.
All rooms were very well equipped and decorated and impeccably clean. We admired the wonderful quilts giving the house a unique Hawaiian touch
Another reason for a MUST - RETURN is the location. It's so quiet and only some minutes away from the Halemaumau crator. A must-see in the evening when glowing."
We recently had our third stay at Hale Mahina in the last year. Whenever we have visitors from the Mainland, the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is always a "must see". Hale Mahina is very convenient to the National Park and the neighboring amenities, galleries, restaurants, the Saturday Farmers Market in Volcano. The accommodations are perfect for two couples; two bedrooms and two full baths. The open floor plan in the living area feels very spacious. And lastly, working with Cheryl is always a pleasure!
Wanted to stay in a home near black sands beach and Volcanos National Park and this lovely home certainly fit the bill. The home is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood which is quiet and off the main highway. The home is super clean and modern, yet spacious. Cheryl was very responsive and attentive and only an email or call away. My only regret was that I couldn't stay longer! I hope to stay again.
I can't begin to describe how wonderful this vacation was, largely due to the accommodations here at Hale Mahina. Cheryl went above and beyond in stocking the house. I have three kids and she has thought of everything- right down to toys, a high chair and a pack and play.
The place was SPOTLESS as well- and I am so picky on cleanliness. It's such a beautiful home. My kids enjoyed exploring the property. The grounds are beautiful and it's so quiet. The proximity to Volcano National Park and Hilo was perfect for us. There were many brochures and books she included on the area that were invaluable to our 'fun-planning'. We were able to do a few things we had not thought of before coming. We will definitely be returning!
This was exactly the get away we needed after a long deployment.

We stayed a week at Hale Mahina in March. The house exceeded our expectations. The yard is beautifully landscaped with birds everywhere. The house is fully equipped with all of your kitchen needs,shampoo etc, beach chairs guide books and information about trails. The deco is lovely. We used the fireplace most mornings. The house is only a few miles from the park entrance. This made it easy for us to see and photograph the volcanic eruptions before sunrise and late in the evening. We grilled our first evening and several Kalij pheasants came down the drive to greet us. The house would be lots of fun for a family to rent. We could easily stay forever in this perfect paradise.
Recommend this unit.
We live in Kailua-Kona and had a guest from the mainland. We wanted to do several activities in the volcano and Puna area, so decided to spend the night. Hale Mahine was a wonderful find on short notice! The house was perfect. Well appointed, very clean and the floor plan was perfect for three adults cooking and watching TV. We had fabulous weather so we were able to enjoy both the front and back porches. We walked to the winery and enjoyed tasting their wine. Went to the Halemaumau crater at night to see the glow and were rewarded with a huge sky of stars. We will be back the next time we are looking for a get away or have mainland guests. Mahalo.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is just a 3 mile drive from the House as well as Volcano Village Shops and restaurants. Punalu'u Black Sand Beach with occasional turtles, is a 35 minute drive from the house and 45 minute drive to Hilo, where you will find Beaches, shopping and Botanical Gardens.
