About the property

Just minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, this great one-bedroom home is your perfect base for exploring the Park and the Volcano area.

Named for both the owner of the home and the local raptor population (the Hawaiian Hawk or 'Io) Kahu 'Io is an ideal location to be the base camp for your Big Island Volcano adventure. There's a bedroom downstairs, and the living room has a large futon and two day beds, accommodating up to 4 guests total.

Kahu 'Io is just ten minutes from the entrance to Volcanoes National Park. Hike across the floor of Kilauea-Iki crater or to Halema'u ma'u, or take a night hike in the park to see the active lava flows. At Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, some of the best activity takes place after the sun goes down.

This near-Volcano location puts you 40 minutes from both Hilo and the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach. Convenient to everything, this attractive escape is surrounded by tall Ohia trees, Kahili ginger, and magnificent Hapu'u ferns.

The home has just the right touch of Aloha charm with its bright red Hibiscus flower decor. The warmth of the wood burning stove will provide a romantic evening. There are two flat screen TV's, one in bedroom, and one in living room with Cable TV and DVD players.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved the house and pond. No land line phone was a problem. Ceiling fans were a challenge - frustrating. Very clean - huge geckos, kinda creepy, but they're better than roaches! Will visit again!!

Volcano is the gateway to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where adventure and exploration await you. Walk through a giant lava tube, hike across a volcanic caldera, enjoy educational films and presentations at the Kīlauea Visitor Center, learn about the history of volcanism in Hawaii at the Jagger Museum, and even enjoy fine dining on the rim of the world's most active volcano. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a destination in and of itself, and unlike anything you'll experience elsewhere!

Quaint Volcano Village is where you'll find groceries, services, and several very good restaurants. For the sommelier in all of us, the world famous Volcano Winery is also just around the corner. The Volcano Golf and Country Club, one of the world's most unusual golf courses, is a must for any golfer. Imagine teeing off on rim of Kilauea volcano, with sweeping views of snowcapped Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea in the background. The 18 hole, par 72 course has a total of 6,547 yards of playing area and offers full restaurant and bar facilities.

When you’re ready to hit the beach, it’s just 30 minutes to Punalu’u Black Sand Beach, one of the Big Island’s gems. All the sights of historic Hilo town are less than an hour away.
