Overview

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.

4th Stay at the Lodge, 5 stars each time!

The hospitality, courtesy, and beauty of this property bring us back to the Rainforest Lodge again and again. Privacy is unrivaled and the location is perfect for our interests in Volcanoes National Park, Punaluu Black Sand Beach, Rainbow Falls, Waimea Falls, Boiling Pots, the new(est) Kapulani lava flow observation, and Mauna Kea summit observation. Rob and Sharon have perfected the art of HomeAway hospitality. We look forward to our next weekend getaway!

Beautiful & relaxing!

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.

Perfect place to call home for the holidays!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (kids are all teens) were welcomed by Sharon to a stunning retreat. Our gracious hostess provided a tour of the property and shared with us some insights into what made this place and the island so special to her. With a warm fire and a fresh loaf of bread to greet us, the Rainforest Lodge was unquestionably one of the highlights of our Hawaiian vacation. It didn't hurt that the only rain we had our entire stay was the first night of our visit, but if it had rained every day it wouldn't have made our stay any less magical.

Nothing I can add that hasn't already been said. Volcanoes NP is a stone's throw up the road, Hilo not too far down the hill the other direction. my wife and I have travelled throughout SE Asia to many tropical paradises, but we agreed that this oasis was as special a place as we've experienced. Thank you again Sharon for your unwavering hospitality. Hope to visit the Lodge again (and we'll be sure to keep an eye out for the birds!)

Beautiful, quiet, spacious home.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. Very spacious. Plenty of room for our family of five with teenagers. Fantastically furnished with excellent appliances. Every room is beautiful. My wife felt very safe with the security system. So relaxing to sit on lanai in evening with the garden lighting. Old books and magazines were great. Centrally located for many sites.

Phenomenal home in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful spot to relax, enjoy some quiet family time and a perfect base from which to explore the Volcano National Park! Sharon was a wonderful and attentive host who also greeted us with a warm smile, tour of the gorgeous home and a delicious loaf of her homemade macadamia nut/banana bread. This home surpassed our expectations and got our vacation off to a fantastic start. We hope to return on our next stay to the big island and can not recommend it highly enough to those considering a stay. You will not be disappointed!
