Royal Hawaiian Estates Estate Rental Photos and Description

Volcano Rainforest Lodge - Private Craftsman Estate - Completed 12-2012

The Volcano Rainforest Lodge is a luxury craftsman estate in an ancient forest.

We are located only a few minutes from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park main entrance near Kilauea summit and the friendly artists community of Volcano Village. Volcano Rainforest Lodge is located in a secluded, private, 3-acre forest. Each room is designed to view the forest and lava outcroppings.

The lodge was designed with privacy in mind. No other guests will be on the property during your visit.

The lodge is a 2,300 square foot, one level, luxury home with three bedroom/bathroom suites, gourmet kitchen, living room with lava rock fireplace, 16' x 20' dining room, and over 1,400 square feet of covered, outside living area (lanai).

The Lodge has Mango flooring, and door/window trim. Mango is also used in the bathroom cabinets and mirror frames. The doors are solid core knotty Alder. The ceilings are beautiful Canadian Pine with Red Western Cedar beams from Oregon. Counter tops in the Lodge are granite. Bathroom walls and floors are gauged Quartzite.

This beautiful Lodge provides all the elements to make your vacation on the Big Island a memorable experience.

The Lodge is like a breath of fresh air amidst the beautiful forest of Ohias and Hapu'u tree ferns; a quiet place to relax and unwind, while being located close to the various adventures in the area.

The Lodge is available for weddings, parties, and corporate events. Please do not confuse our property with Volcano Rainforest Retreat.

Each of the king suites has a Kuerig coffee maker, microwave, private lanai, exterior door, and a big screen TV. The lodge has DISH satellite television and internet.

About Rob Owens

I have close to fourteen years experience in the Hawaiian vacation rental business. I wanted guests to experience luxury and privacy in a Hawaiian/Craftsman home, while being able to view and enjoy ancient forests and lava features from every room and private lanais. I built this home to last for generations, with only high quality construction materials being used. The Volcano Rainforest Lodge took years to complete because great efforts were made to spare the forest and lava features. No bulldozer ever touched the lot with the utmost effort being made to protect the many endangered trees and plants on the grounds. The utilities were placed underground to maximize the views from The Lodge.

Rob Owens purchased this estate in 2006

Why Rob Owens chose Volcano

The property was chosen because of its location. While only minutes away from the national park, Volcano Village, and the golf course, the home site has a remote, rural feeling for those who desire privacy and quiet. The elevation of the lodge is about 3,025' and the daytime high temperature is rarely over 80. The property is within Hawaiian Orchid Island Estates. The square, three acre lot allows for an extensive hiking trail network exclusive to our guests. The property has numerous lava outcroppings to explore as well as 200-year-old Ohia trees, rare native plants, and 20' Hawaiian Hapu'u tree ferns. Construction of the Volcano Rainforest Lodge was completed in December 2012.

What makes this estate unique

The Lodge has over 1,400 square feet of covered, outside living area. Comfortable patio furniture surrounds the house for guests to enjoy the forest in every direction. After a day in the park guests may enjoy a relaxing rest in the hot tub while viewing the beautiful fern forest and stunning night skies. All of the lava excavated during construction was used in the foundation of the home, fireplace, and retaining walls. Exotic woods add to the beauty and elegance of The Lodge. A giant Mango tree which once blocked the highway is now our floor and trim. Come and enjoy this beautiful Hawaiian Craftsman home.

**New** Discounts for Golfing and equipment rental at Volcano Country Club and Golf Course. Ask Sharon.

Incredibly cozy home in Volcano

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time visiting Volcano. Staying here gave us the comfort we seek out when traveling. After a day of adventuring, we came home to light a fire, gather and relax. We cooked dinners, slept well and enjoyed all the creature comforts of this home. The beds are comfortable, the home spacious, the kitchen and bedrooms well stocked. Sharon took great care of us. Our children just walked around the perimeter of the home feeling as if they were lost in a magical rain forest. So grateful our friends shared their experience in Volcano with us so we could have ours. Kids left as Junior Rangers and we all left with the incredible experience of viewing Madame Pele's power. Look no further for lodging. This home and this location is a great combination for an amazing trip to Volcanoes National Park.

Absolutely Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

Sharon is an amazing hostess. She welcomed us at check-in and showed us around the Lodge. She also walked us through all the details about the house. She also left us with some local breakfast goodies, tropical fruits, and a homemade banana nut bread (which was very good).

The Lodge is perfectly situated in a private rain forest, the home offers plenty of space and privacy for our party of six -- including two boys (10 and 12 yrs) and my in-laws who enjoy peace and quiet. Each bedroom provided plenty of storage, an en suite bath, and direct access to the wrap-around deck. The Keurig machines in each room was nice. Every where you turned in the house it offered amazing views of the rain forest either through massive windows or sliding doors. The kitchen is well-stocked with condiments, oils, spices and all the cooking utensils you would want. The fridge also contained plenty of bottles of water. We did go to Hilo after we checked-in to do some grocery-shopping. We did add some honey to the condiments. The Lodge is wonderful it makes you feel like you are living in the jungle... we would sit out on the decks and listen to all the sounds and to the rain. We also enjoyed the use of the hot tub after some long days of hiking and other activities.

Thank you to Rob and Sharon for sharing your magnificent home. The Lodge was beyond our expectations. We can't wait to plan our next trip!

One of the most beautiful and well appointed homes we've ever rented.

  • 5 of 5

This custom home is tucked away in a beautiful rain forest setting well off the beaten track. Rob created an amazing setting where you just want to stay and relax. Sharon was the perfect hostess and filled our refrigerator with breakfast fixings including homemade banana bread. We didn't want to leave.

Thank you for providing the perfect setting for a very relaxing stay.

This was my second time staying here & this is definitely where we'll stay anytime we visit the Big Island!

Gorgeous home in the middle of a beautiful rainforest. My kids loved exploring outside & we loved the tranquility of everything there.
