I have stayed in Lava Tree Tropic Inn with my husband and a friend for a week in Aug 2016 and it was awesome! The inn is located in a forest area in the Pahoa aera, just by the Lava Tree State Park. It's a not a fancy chain hotel, but, in my opinion, much better than that. We felt...

First of all this was my first time staying in someone else home. I had the most wonderful experience staying with Irene! When we arrived (During Tropical Storm Darby) Irene greeted us and showed us to our room and gave a quick tour of her home. My friend and I were the only guest (because of the storm) she asked...

Been here twice in the past 8 months and what a great place. Hidden behind Lava Tree State Park which allows for a quiet paradise. Great tropical foil age, fruit trees galore and an all natural breakfast prepared by Irene, the owner which is a surprise each morning as you sit on the veranda and watch the free range chickens...

The owner and operator, Irene, was fantastic! Excellent food and hospitality. Good location right by Lava Tree Park. Irene was very accommodating for our late arrival. If you do not mind a rooster not knowing what time it is, removing your shoes to protect the beautiful wood floors and a very uneven driveway-this place is for you! We had a...

This is a difficult review to write, simply because there were a broadly equal number of good points to development areas. Let me begin by saying that the photos on the website bear little resemblance to the inn. To say that they have been "beautified" would be an understatement. Yet that said, the inn had a huge amount of character...

We had a lovely stay at the Inn and Irene was a lovely hostess. We loved the house, the gorgeous wood floors and the wonderful balcony bedroom. We truly felt as though we were in a tropical jungle with wonderful, comfortable amenities. If you like the sounds of the frogs, tropical birds and sights of the orchards, African Tulip Tree...

We were there one week ago and I think words cannot describe the beauty!!! The B&B is located in the middle of a tropic garden , surrounded by flowers and Palm trees, and in the evening you can hear the birds' chirping!!! I regret I didn't spend one more week! The house is comfortable and clean and you can breathe...

We spend 10 days at the beautiful place. Irene took care in a really personal and very nice way. The huge garden, the nice and clean rooms were perfect for us. We enjoyed the special breakfast with fruits from the garden, the fresh macademia nuts, the beautiful surrounding of this highly recommended BnB lets us come back for sure.

Our stay here was amazing, truly a five star experience. That said, let me tell you what the Lava Tree is NOT- it is NOT a fancy resort catering to mainland tourists who expect bellhops and a ritzy uptown vibe. If that's what you're into, go to Waikiki. What it IS - a beautifully built and maintained rural Hawaiian home...
