About Merlenna Higby

We built this home in 2011. As long time residents of Oahu, we find Volcano Village the perfect place for an escape from Oahu's busy pace.

Merlenna Higby purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Merlenna Higby chose Volcano

Volcano Village offers a quiet small town atmosphere, yet only 45 minutes from Hilo.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the cool weather at this elevation and love to go on hikes, learning about the forest life in this unique area. The Farmer's Market on Sunday mornings is always a treat.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Cozy two bedroom cottage with charming and calming views. Perfect vacation retreat in between activities or to cozy up in and watch movies read a book etc. I spent a wonderful nine nights here and was amazed at the beauty of the cottage and how easy it was to eat out, cook, watch movies, play puzzles, or whatever other activity. Great location to drive to waterfalls, gardens, beaches, and @2 miles from volcano national park entrance so you can easily run over and catch the lava glowing at night, or take a day hike.

Owner's Response: Thank you. There is nothing like being surrounded with the natural beauty of the tree fern and Ohia tree forest, with Apapani birds singing. Hope you liked the new bed and got to see the volcano splattering!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the cottage in Volcano. It was conveniently located close to the National Park, had a very nice bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, and was extremely quiet. We loved the tree fern forest surrounding the place.

Loved it with ....

  • 4 of 5

Loved everything about the cottage with the exception of the mattress in the back room; it was sleeping on a "valley" bed where you roll down towards the middle. The other bedroom's mattress was super comfortable and the rest of the place was great!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback regarding the mattress. We didn't realize it needed to be replaced. We will get a new mattress early in July. I'm glad everything else was to your liking. Mahalo for your review.

Cozy and clean

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little cabin with soft high thread count sheets and pretty towels. Quiet but for some normal neighborhood stirrings. Feels private. Very clean with great little wood stove (didn't find ax to chop more kindling...?) and heaters for chilly nights. Will happily return.
