Overview

About the property

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 over fifteen 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 was blown down in a storm and 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.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

I arrived with high expectations; despite that, this property, its furnishings, the surroundings, its well-stocked kitchen, bookshelves...even the wifi speed exceeded my expectations. The surroundings are lush, tranquil, and lovely. The wrap around lanai is awesome. Our host, Sharon, greeted us on time and left us with yummy and moist bread and fresh fruit. I can't recommend this property enough-it truly warrants a 5-star rating.

Wonderful, comfortable and priate.

  • 5 of 5

Shannon was great about checking in to see if all was well, which of course it was. We loved the home and used it as a base for all of our exploration from Kalapana to Waipio Valley. Coming home and recounting the day by the fireplace with a warm fire was always a nice close to the day.

Words and pics don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

From the reviews we had pretty high expectations and we were NOT disappointed. The house is beautiful, the surroundings beautiful, the quality of everything superb from the house itself to the towels, sheets cookware and knives. Everything you need is there. The beds and pillows are wonderfully comfortable. Sharon is delightful (her banana bread is to die for) stop searching and book this house now!!!! We can't wait to visit again. Thank you Sharon!!!!

Stunning property inside and out and the best host ever!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 nights at property while sightseeing Volcano National Park and Hilo area. Accommodations were superb with every detail thought out (comfortable beds, motion sensor lighting very helpful at night, filtered water pitchers in every room, wonderful outdoor spaces to enjoy the rainforest). Quiet and peaceful location when we returned each night. Host made sure we were fully oriented at the property and besides terrific homemade banana bread there was milk, eggs, fresh fruit and other staple pantry items! I have never had that kind of service at any other rental in my many years of using VRBO and Homeaway! My children 10 and 13 loved exploring the grounds and really didn't want to leave...neither did I.

We've done VRBO many times. This property was among our favorites: lovely, relaxed, beautiful, quiet, private, comfortable. The manager was on-property (but you'd never know it, living in a bungalow nearby). She welcomed us warmly, and even left us some homemade banana bread (delicious). Very receptive and helpful but never underfoot. Would return in a heartbeat for another (longer) visit.
