Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom 1.5 Bath hand crafted from native woods, jacuzzi, fireplace, privacy

Explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and experience the Aloha of Hawaii Island while staying at this gorgeous, hand crafted home near Volcano Golf Course & Country Club. Nestled amongst the native Koa and Ohia Lehua Trees with a sweeping view of Mauna Loa and a steady serenade from the numerous native birds,this Hawaiian retreat will envelope you with a complete sense of peace and relaxation. Hale Ka Lehua was designed by owners John & Mindi Clark and personally built by John which shows in every well thought out detail.

The extensive use of glass gives one the feeling of being outside while within the warm comfort of indoors...perhaps snuggled next to the wood burning fireplace.

This 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath retreat has a completely private master bedroom located outside of the main home off of the front lanai. This sweet room has a full sized memory foam bed with a native garden view, 1/2 bath, night stand,reading lights over the bed and a small space heater for extra chilly winter nights.

The main floor bedroom has a queen memory foam bed, a small desk and closet and is located across the hall from the full bath (both Tub & shower).

The upstairs 'room with a view'' is a multi-purpose room with a full size Futon sofa bed (a real matress not a cotton one along with a memory foam mattress pad topper) that can be used as a reading or game room, a bedroom or a perfect place to practice Yoga, meditate or simply have some quiet time enjoying the full, mountain view of Mauna Loa through Frank Lloyd Wright inspired seamless corner windows.

The kitchen boasts gorgeous 'Flower Garden' granite, gas stove and oven and is completely stocked with Le Creuset cookware, small appliances and Riedel wine glasses.

French doors spill out from the solid ohia wood floored living & dining room onto the wrap around lanai that has outside dining and gas BBQ grill as well.

We invite you to come enjoy the beauty and quietude of this beautiful brand new home while exploring the amazing dynamics of Kilauea, the world's most active volcano located within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

The 'Dry side' of Volcano keeps you out out of what can be a constant drizzle & fog that shrouds the eastern flank. The golf course area is located just beyond the crest of 4,000' and dips you into the Kau side of Volcano where the temps will still range from the 40's to the mid 70's but with far more sun! We are 3 miles past the entrance to the park, but you can walk to the edge of the caldera from our home in just 20 minutes...a perfect place to sip a glass of wine while soaking in the view of Halema'uma'u and getting a glimpse of the powers of Madame Pele.

Both the Volcano Golf Course and Volcano Winery are within a few minutes walk from the house.

About Melinda Clark

We moved to the Hawaiian village of Kalapana located on the SE corner of the Big Island in 1981 to escape the freeways of So. California. We were blessed to live, surf and paddle canoe here for 8 years before Madame Pele covered this community with lava in the late 80's & early 90's. We lost our home to the lava but our orchid farm,'Kalapana Tropicals' that we started in 1987 remains in tact and is now just one of 2 orchid nurseries that we own and operate...the other being in Kurtistown where we have lived since 1990. Free orchid farm tours for our guests!

Melinda Clark purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Melinda Clark chose Volcano

We love the Volcano area for it's cool weather, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and hiking and cycling opportunities. It's a quick get-a-way for us as it is only 20 minutes from our home in Kurtistown and we feel like we are in another world!

What makes this cabin unique

We selected this property because it is located on the 'dry side' of Volcano, it's bounty of native Koa and Ohia trees that are filled with birds. John took great care in removing only enough trees to build and the home is designed with a bedroom off the lanai to save trees and give this home a tree house feel.

Amazing secluded volcano themed wood house

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house! Pictures don't do it justice. Everything from the lava rock style driveway to the petroglyphs on the doors, everything is themed and has a place.... even one of the coffee mugs has the local nene bird on it. Its super cute and peaceful. The woodwork in the house is great, seems very new and well designed. It is very clean and well kept. All for a great price.... what more do I need to say! I will definitely be coming back if staying near the volcanoes.

Great unique house tucked away in Volcano

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay near Hawai'i Volcano National Park to save ourselves the drive back to Waikoloa after a day of hiking in the park and Melinda and John's place fit the bill.

The house is beautifully designed and full of character. The kitchen was well stocked and the complimentary coffee was delicious. We loved the old school coffee grinder! The bed's were comfortable and the extra blankets were appreciated in the (relatively) cool night air. My daughter and her friend loved the separate "pod" bedroom. The hot tub was a perfect ending to a day of hiking.

Melinda was helpful and quick to respond to our last minute reservation.. We will definitely stay again if we're down in the area again.

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed at this lovely house for one night in order to easily visit the crater at nighttime.

We loved the tropical surroundings, the hot tub, and my oldest son happily rode one of the bikes around the neighborhood. We did not cook there, but the kitchen seemed well stocked.

The house is beautiful, and was obviously crafted with love.

A cut above the rest

  • 5 of 5

Within walking distance of the smouldering crater at Volcano National Park. Nenes in the golf course and pheasants in the backyard. Beautiful house w/ fully stocked gourmet kitchen, detached bedroom overlooking the hot tub, in a wonderfully quiet neighborhood.

We are 3 miles past the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, just past the Volcano Golf Course which is located on Pi'imauna Drive (1st Right past the 4,000 elevation marker on Highway 11). We are a 20 minute walk to the edge of Kilauea Caldera (from the house),10 minute walk to the golf course & a 5 minute walk to the winery. Lots of hiking trails, cycling, exploring the National Park and lava viewing.

You may also park at the entrance of our subdivision at the corner of Pi'imauna and the highway and access the park or the shopping facilities within the Kilauea Military camp. From here the walk to the caldera is less than 10 minutes. Access the hiking trails across from the flag pole at Kilauea Military Camp ...aka KMC.

We have 2 bikes for your enjoyment as well.
