A peaceful oasis in the rainforest! Our room was spotless, as was the modern bathroom. There is speedy wifi throughout. I loved the fruit trees and garden, with the chickens roaming freely through the yard. Irene was a lovely host, she recommended some great places to eat and set a wonderful fresh breakfast to prepare us for our busy days....

Irene is a lovely host. The location is so peaceful. The rooms are clean and the grounds beautiful. So close to Pahoa and the lava tours. The breakfast is fantastic served on the verandah. If you are lucky Irene will serve some of her homemade spreads. I highly recommend it.

I stayed at the Lava Tree Tropic Inn in April 2013 for the second time. I originally went there in November, and liked it so much that I had to go back. The owner, Irene, is the nicest and most amazing person I have ever met at an accommodation. The breakfasts are great and served on a lovely covered porch,...

Wow - what a find!!! We saw the website, then made the mistake of copying the address to use in my GPS. Well the address was wrong! The owner will explain it all over coffee. It's best to call ahead and have Irene, the owner, give you instructions as to how to get there, as it is in Lava Tree...

I visited the Lava Tree Tropic Inn July of 2012, and had the time of my life. It was like staying at a friend's house, but there is no surprise there. This is a Bed & Breakfast. If you like multi-course breakfasts including home grown tropical fruits and jams to hold you through most of your busy day, friendly table...

My Russian friend and I stayed at the Lava Tree Tropic Inn at the start of November, for 8 days. I had come to Hawaii to celebrate my birthday, and cross some stuff off my bucket list. I found the Lava Tree on the internet, and it looked beautiful and reasonably priced, so I booked it. I was not disappointed...
