Volcano house description

Lava Tube Hale has been a magical retreat for adventurers seeking to experience and explore the Volcano area http://www.nps.gov/havo/index.htm

After hiking one of the 150 trails the park has to offer nothing hits the spot like a soak in the hot tub/whirlpool under the covered lanai. Situated in the rain forest the lanai and house are very private with no neighbor in sight. Guests have the option of showering inside or in the outside shower under the stars.

Lave Tube Hale (house) is well appointed with full kitchen for cooking or reheating meals from one of the many wonderful restaurants in Volcano Village just minutes away. We provide you with bottled water, coffee, teas and cocoa. When you arrive there will be an island welcome basket with bananas, papayas and a pineapple. To make is easy to slice your Pineapple we even have a Pineapple Slicer

Kick back, read or lounge by the fireplace. All are encouraged in the living room as well as playing board games with family and friends. Music/CDS and books are here to enjoy. Complementary WIFI is available for those who wish to keep up with social networking. A good old fashion telephone also is available for local calls.

The guest room has two twin beds, TV with DVD player and movies. The master bedroom has a queen bed with a thick memory foam pad to ensure the most restful sleep, plenty of comfortable bedding and linens throughout.

Kids and adults enjoy exploring the backyard rainforest complete with its very own lava tube!

About Bernadette Boteilho

Hawaii Tax ID # W01741524-01

Bernadette Boteilho purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Bernadette Boteilho chose Volcano

Michael and Kerry fell in love with the magic of Volcano and the rainforest so much that they bought this hale. They use it as a place to enjoy nature with family and friends. This special get-away spot is like nowhere else on earth and has been a retreat for them, as well as for folks from all around the world. We hope you´ll find some time to experience this incredible place in Volcano, home of Pele, and share some highlights about your stay at Lava Tube Hale with us. Aloha pumehana!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This enchanted cottage helped us enjoy a perfect family holiday and volcano experience. Our grandchildren (age 8 & 10) loved the jungle and the lava tube—and everything else about our visit.

Beautiful setting, close to VNP

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Lava Tube Hale. The yard is lush and lovely with tons of flowers and birds, and outdoor shower was amazing. The private hot tub was easy to use and warmed up quickly, great for relaxing after a long day of hiking or biking, but maybe a little snug for a family of 4. The home was very clean and had a lot of helpful amenities - everything needed for laundry, drinking water, flashlights, hot tub/beach towels - and a nice welcome basket of fruit. The property manager handled booking quickly and sent a lot of helpful information for our arrival and stay. The neighborhood is very quiet and it was a short 5-10 minute drive to the national park. Be aware that the TV is in the twin (kids) bedroom (rather than a common area) and does not allow HDMI input - not a big deal as we didn't come to Volcano to watch TV, but my Apple TV addicted kids felt a little differently.

Unforgettable stay

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay during our family of 4 visit to VNP. Lovely home tucked away in the rainforest. Kitchen well supplied, home decor very welcoming with attention to details. Hot tube, outdoor shower, washer and dryer, fireplace and all the welcome goodies upon arrival all pluses. Communication with Bernie(manager ) was clear and timely.

Would recommend this home without hesitation.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We thought the price for what you get was quite a bargain. Very clean. Very private. Close to volcano park, Hot tub works great. Welcome fruit basket was a nice touch. There is a nice Thai restaurant nearby. No good grocery stores for 20 or more miles, so If you are going to cook or eat something, buy your food in Hilo before you come up, just like Bernadette recommends. I thought I could pick up some food in volcano city, but the stores do not have any fresh meat (they have frozen) but the price was way high, even for Hawaii. Out of our nine night stay in Hawaii, the 3 nights we spent here was the best!

Perfect romantics getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Lava Hale. The hot tub and fireplace was our favorite and we looked forward to coming in to it every night. The location was very close to the Volcano National Park. The place had everything we needed. Thank you! We hope to come back soon with our children.

Felt Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost the hot tub was absolutely amazing! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it while looking out into the rainforest. We even saw some pheasants walking right by us in the woods. The home itself was very cozy and welcoming. Bernie was very hospitable, even bringing us laundry soap that was missing. The lava tube on the property was also very cool.

We also loved the proximity to the volcano. We spent a day exploring the various paths and sights around the volcano national park, including walking through the lava tube there! It was a great base for the adventure. We also went to the black sand beach down the coast. It was a great to see one of those for the first time, and we even saw sea turtles there.

We would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for an adventure exploring. It was also a great place to just sit back and relax. The fireplace inside kept us nice and warm, while the hot tub provided a great place to relax. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and wished we didn't have to leave!
