Vacation in the Round at our Hawaiian-swank upscale yurt!
Hale Kipa Fern Forest
About Hale Kipa Fern Forest
We've lived on The Big Island of Hawaii since 2016 when we moved from North Pole, Alaska. We're living our dream of working for ourselves, living self-sustainably on our land with our small business and sincerely hope to contribute to amazing Hawaiian vacations for our guests. Our vacations here inspired our move here. Mahalo!
Hale Kipa Fern Forest purchased this Guest House in 2016
Why Hale Kipa Fern Forest chose Fern Forest
Our solar powered yurt is for those who are curious about experiencing island-style accommodations while meeting standard needs. We average enough rainfall to collect our own water, enough sun to power our needs and those of our guests, and we enjoy the seclusion of Pele's Playground!

Beautiful yurt in Hawaii
This was a beautiful off grid yurt in fern forest! Very nicely set up and comfortable and roomy still. We fell in love with this place! Definitely recommend. The hosts were also very accommodating and helpful with things we needed to know 💕
Mahalo for staying with us and showing so much respect for our place! We'd love to see you again in the future!
Loved the Yert
It was our first time in a yert and it was amazing
This was our first time in a yurt! We are a family of four and totally enjoyed the experience. The sunroof lets in a lot of daylight, the barbecue and outdoor kitchen table were very convenient, and the way it is divided up makes it feel very spacious.
Very pleasant place
We enjoyed staying at Hale Kipa Fern Forest. We toured from Volcano Village to South Point with plenty of time just staying comfy in the yurt. Very well appointed with obvious attention to detail. We'll recommend to friends visiting the big island.
We appreciated having you as our guests! Everything was kept tidy, you were very friendly and had great communication with us! You're welcome back and please do refer us! Mahalo!
Amazing Yurt experience, zero carbon footprint. Eco living with modern amenities.
Gypsy & Dawn are amazing hosts. Upon arrival we were greeted and welcomed immediately. They gave us a tour of the property including their solar powered battery array and catchment system. Staying here was such a great experience, I've never stayed in a yurt before but it was everything you needed and more. Zero carbon footprint, rain water that is filtered, I felt socially responsible staying here and it was close enough to everything we wanted to see including the volcano National park. I will definitely look at this property when visiting the Big Island again!
We so enjoyed having you as guests and we thank you for keeping things so nice while you were here! You're welcome back anytime!
Amazing vacation spot!
The yurt was immaculately clean and perfectly cozy! We were looking for place to stay close to friends without having to drive to a hotel in Hilo. This beautiful spot is exactly where we wanted to be. The bed was so comfy and the shower was hot. It can get cool outside in the evenings in Fern Forest but the yurt stayed comfortably warm inside and cool when you open up the windows during the day. We were able to have our friends over to bbq on the large back porch. We also love how peaceful it is off the beaten path!
We're happy to tell you our yurt was built by Yurts of Hawaii
