Romantic Aloha Ohia Hale with Hot Tub!

Romantic Aloha Ohia Hale with Hot Tub!

Escape, Rest, Relax & Unwind in total seclusion with the creature comforts of home!

Nestled in the heart of the Big Island's oldest Volcanic Rain forest, and atop the world's most active lava field, lies our volcano retreat of refuge, peace and comfort.

Enjoy the full comforts of home while relaxing under a covered lanai featuring a quiet sitting area and hot tub. Children under 12 years old not allowed.

Awaken to the cacophony of Native Hawaiian bird's, soft falling rains and warm sunlight breaking through the clouds.

Take a stroll through the forested neighborhood of Ohia Estates and the tropical surroundings of this serene home, that is secluded in a lush native Hawaiian Rain Forest located about 4 miles from the Hawaii National Park entrance and just 25 Miles South of Hilo, Hawai`i.

This inviting home is also a 5 minute drive to charming Volcano Village, which boasts one of the best local farmer's markets early Sunday morning, a skate-park and playground for the keiki and many small cafe's to choose from.

Relax and unwind ... be refreshed by the cool mountain air and embraced by the giant Hapu'u ferns, Ohia trees, fragrant ginger and wild orchids that creates a unique and lush contrast to the primordial volcanic landscape of Kilauea Volcano that is home.

Here is one of our reviews from our happy guest!

We had a wonderful and truly relaxing "staycation" in Ohia Estates. The house is comfortable and clean, and it has everything you need including a fully stocked kitchen. The shower.....I cannot say enough about this shower!!! It felt like I was bathing in a perfectly hot waterfall....so incredible. The hot tub with the view of ohia trees and hapu'u ferns was absolutely lovely. I definitely recommend this sweet little home.

About Merlenna Higby

Aloha and welcome to my Big Island home! Ohia Estates is a magical place just four miles from Hawaii National Park. A perfect getaway for those wanting to hike the Kilauea trails and explore Volcano's Hawaii National Park. The guest room is fully furnished w/ a Queen size bed and ample closet space. The rental also includes one full bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a covered lanai and a hot tub. The seclusion and solitude is perfect for those who need to get away from it all and detox from the stress of the city.

Merlenna Higby purchased this house in 2008

Why Merlenna Higby chose Volcano

After living in L.A. and traveling the world for the past 10 years, I have been searching for my piece of Hawaii. I am originally from Honolulu and I didn't want to be in a city environment, so I chose the Big Island to call home. I was drawn to Volcano because of it's cooler temperature and it's proximity to Hawaii National Park. It's exciting living so close to one of the most active volcano's in the world. The earth is ALIVE here!

What makes this house unique

Spend the day exploring Volcano's Hawaii National Park, hiking the trails of Kilauea or playing golf at the Volcano Golf and Country Club then come home to a completely furnished home with a fully equipped kitchen. You and your special someone can prepare a gourmet meal then soak in the hot tub while sipping wine on the outdoor lanai. All the creature comforts of home in the serene tropical rain forest. Amenities include wireless internet, DirecTV Satellite Programming, and DVD/CD Surround Sound Stereo System.

Beautiful & PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

Completely lost for words. This place was/is everything we hoped for and more. So much so we're counting down the days till we return. We travel to different vacation homes for our birthdays every year. We've decided to make this our birthday spot from now on. I can't even explain how easy and peaceful it was to be in this home. Simple check in and check out, beautiful bathroom, comfortable couch, huge TV, Netflix, awesome bed, I could go on and on. This house has everything you could think of and more. Everything you need, is just 4 minutes away, excluding high end restaurants, general stores , gas stations coffee spots and more. Aloha Hale ohia is so more then convenient, it's HOME! Such a great feeling in this home. Super comfortable. Shower is amazing!!! I could stay in there all day. Jacuzzi?! A majior and PERFECT plus. I could hang in the hot tub, with a glass of wine while the babes BBQ'd an amazing dinner. Thanks again for literally one of the best weeks of our life. Such a great place we had to prolong our stay lol. We were sad to go but left the place with amazing flowers on the kitchen table to show our great fulness. Again, Mahalo plenty :)

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Great good location in Volcano, short drive to restaurants, Volcano National Park, Mt. View Bakery. 45-60 minutes to Pahoa area where most boats leave for lava→ocean tour. There are a couple of small stores in Volcano, larger groceries in Hilo. Clean, quiet (can't hear highway traffic), private. Kitchen well stocked, has a dishwasher, Ice packs, cooler. Bedrooms are very nice. It can get chilly in Volcano but the house has a heater which works well. Jacuzzi was very nice to have after long hikes. There are some feral cats which I guess hang around because people feed them, but they did not get on our car and don't bother you other than occasionally staring in the window. Clothes washer and dryer work well.

We are just five minutes from the entrance to Volcanoes National Park. Hike across the floor of Kilauea-Iki crater or to Halema'u ma'u, home of the fire goddess Pele, or take a night hike to see the active lava flows.

Your Volcano Village location puts you 40 minutes from Punalu’u Black Sand Beach, where you may see turtles nesting and swimming, one and a half hours from from the City of Refuge, and only 40 minutes from historic and beautiful downtown Hilo with restaurants, shops, museums and nearby snorkeling beaches.

Amenities in the village include several diverse restaurants, 2 grocery stores, 2 gas stations, launderette, gift shops, art galleries, post office, a nearby local winery, 18-hole golf course and 'da' best Sunday morning farmer's market.
