A 2 bedroom Cottage surrounded by Pristine rainforest.

Why brenda chose Volcano
Volcano Big Tree Sanctuary is a high end ecolodge located just outside Volcano Village, minutes from Hawaii Volcano National Park. Situated in a unique ecosystem at the 4000 foot elevation this private 30 acres estate has giant Koa trees, a green house with a tropical plant collection, Koi pond and a grove of perhaps the largest Ohia trees in the state of Hawaii Some of the Ohia trees may have even been saplings when the first Hawaiians arrived, and today stand over 110 feet high and have a circumference close to 30 feet. (Ohia is the State Tree with red flowers used in the original Hawaiian Leis). There are beautiful walking trails that winded through 1,000+ year old rainforest that shares a border with Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. If you enjoy birds, this is one of the few places you can stay in Hawaii where you can still see the rare and endangered native Hawaiian forest birds. There is a nesting pair of endangered Hawaiian Hawks on the property, as well as several species of honeycreepers (Apapane, Amakihi, and I'iwi, with occasional visits by a small flock of Akepa) to whose beautiful and mellow songs you will awaken each morning. Nene fly overhead daily, and the Hawaiian Thrush (Omao) sings each evening. The owner has willed the property to the San Diego Zoo's Institute for Conservation Research to preserve it in perpetuity. You will experience the magic of Hawaii's rare old growth rainforest in a very personal way while staying in an outstanding deluxe home. .

Nicer than the pictures
We stayed 2 nights in Volcano to do some hiking. The house is lovely and very spacious. There were four of us staying in the house and my sister in law kept saying that the house is so much prettier in person and the pictures online do not do it justice. Thank you for letting us stay in your home. We were a little disappointed that the hot tub was not working. Everything else in the house was great. Loved the yard and Volcano area.
The very best VRBO in Volcano
My wife and I were very surprised and pleased with the location and amenities at this VRBO. The pictures and words don't really do justice in representing it. Beautiful landscaping, great hot tub and Sauna Room, etc.. Still can't believe the number of Koi in the pond and the books, etc. in every room. We will surely stay here again.
Incredible retreat with nature
This place is so nice! We feel fortunate that the owner shares their piece of heaven. The property is like a park, and we wandered the grounds to see birds we’d never seen, trees of impressive age, and signs of the boars that try to upset the groundskeeper! It’s cool at night, wet a lot, and not the place to tan. But if you love nature and luxury, i think this is hard to beat in Volcano.
Peaceful relaxing retreat!
Beautiful private residence with fireplace, hot tub and sauna. Terrific to unwind!
Secluded getaway in a rainforest
Lovely private home in the midst of a rainforest.
Peaceful, Quiet, Relaxing
We came from Kona for a short staycation weekend. We enjoyed the house and the amenities. The yard and the koi pond are beautiful. The sauna and hot tub were a blast. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants to get away from it all.
