About Merlenna Higby

We love Hawaii, especially the weather, and the big island has everything big. Moved from Monterey California a beautiful area to an even more beautiful area. And most exciting of all we live right next to an active volcano, how many people can say that.

Merlenna Higby purchased this House in 2006

Why Merlenna Higby chose Volcano

Up to lately a million visitors a year, thought this might be a rather interesting way to add income.

Great location, ,very close to Volcano national park and nearest village centre with restaurants. Big thanks to owner. Merlenna was very helpful, She provides us with all necessary information that made our trip easier and absolutely pleasant. Highly recommend to stay there. You will feel like at home.

                                                                wonderful house in peaceful setting, great for larger groups

                                                                Definitely recommend, super easy to work with. We were only there a couple days, wish it were longer but it was to support some ultra runners coming thru. Plenty of space for a large group or multiple families. Loved that there was an extended area downstairs to rent.

                                                                Lush fern forest and everything as advertised

                                                                Rented a house in Kona-Kailua - double booked one night at the Jade House in Volcano for convenience. Traveling with my wife, our 3 adult children and their significant others. Easy to find, everything was clean, and a great space for all eight of us. The added basement suite for just a token cleaning fee was a great deal. Convenient to Volcano National Park, and a reasonable drive to Hilo and Kalapana to rent bikes and hike the lava. The fern 'forest' around the house made a big impression. Very quiet neighborhood. Next time around we'll spend more time on the green side of the island!

                                                                Nice place good value for money.

                                                                Very well stocked, lots of towels, utensils, laundry, coffee, dehumidifier, etc. Thanks for the coffee, enjoyed it! Recommend turning on the de humidifier as it makes a big difference. The place is very close to the volcano which is a great plus. Also it is a good point from which to visit Hilo or Kona so great location. We had a very comfortable stay. We were a party of 2 adults and 3 kids and there was plenty of room for everyone.

The lower unit was for the older children and worked out great. Also close to the National Park. We had a wonderful trip and would stay here again
