Why Merlenna Higby chose Volcano

We fell in love with Hawaii 40 years ago and always wanted our own little piece of paradise. Always traveling in Hawaii, we discovered things and features that characterized "Living in Paradise" and included them in the house so all of our guests would leave with the Spirit of Aloha in their hearts.

We fell in love with Hawaii 40 years ago and always wanted our own little piece of paradise. Always traveling in Hawaii, we discovered things and features that characterized "Living in Paradise" and included them in the house so all of our guests would leave with the Spirit of Aloha in their hearts.

Aloha Sweet Hale is the "big sister" to Hale Sweet Hale, also located n Volcano Village. It is where your image of Hawaii comes alive with its lush tropical surroundings. Staying at Aloha Sweet Hale or Hale Sweet Hale captures paradise that is distinctively the best and unforgettable in Volcano Village.

rainforest hideaway

  • 5 of 5

What a delight to find this tranquil home hidden away in the rainforest. So happy we decided to spend 3 nights in volcano village to explore the volcano and nearby Hilo sights. Beautiful home with very comfortable beds and upscale amenities. Incredible privacy as we sat on the lanai and enjoyed the birds and watching the forest sights. The management was very responsive and everything was as we expected and true to the photos. We hope to be back someday soon!

Good Location, Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Listing matched description. The house is close the Park yet out of the hub of activity when you get back. We liked the rain forest like setting. Hot tub is great way to relax after a good hike.

Best family vacation accomodations we could ask for

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 nights in Aloha Sweet Hale (2 parents, and 3 teens/young adults) and everyone agreed that it was the best family vacation rental we've ever had. The house had everything we needed (comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, lots of towels, etc.). The outdoor area was beautiful, and the house was close to all of the things we wanted to do on the Big Island, including the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We felt like we were staying in a friend's home, not just a vacation rental.

FANTASTIC STAY

  • 5 of 5

A very nice place to stay. We were only able to stay 2 nights, but would like to stay a week. Very secluded and only one mile from Volcano Nat'l Park.

Beautiful Setting

  • 4 of 5

The cabin in Volcan was beautiful. We arrived around 9pm at night after a long driver from Waikoloa along the Kona coast. Upon arriving it was dark out and raining. The cabin is located near the end of the road past the sign that says "dead end". Arriving at night and in the rain was a tad creepy, but after settling in it was a really nice place. We woke up to bright sunny skies and it help put everything in perspective. We really enjoyed our stay here. Almost everything was in good condition. The wifi wasn't great and was challenging to connect to at times and there were a few loose screws around the place, but nothing major. We would absolutely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are glad you were able to find Aloha Sweet Hale in the night darkness of Volcano. We always hope guests arrive before it's dark, but it's not always possible. So kudos to you. Yes, the location sometimes makes the wifi a little difficult. We look forward to your next stay at Aloha Sweet Hale.
