The place is amazing, Irene is amazing, and you meet the most wonderful people. My wife and I stayed here a half dozen years ago, have been thinking of returning ever since, and just spent a wonderful four more days.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Lava Tree Tropic Inn, but next time we'll know to book a longer stay. It's a beautiful place, and only a few miles from the hot pool, a large swimming pool sized area where thermal water mixes with ocean water, only about 4 feet deep or so, just perfect. Irene is...

We stayed here over Christmas while visiting our Son and his Family. There were four of us and their place was too small to accommodate us, so we chose Lava Trees Tropical Inn for it's proximity to their home. WOW are we glad we lucked into it. Irene is so wonderful and her place has such a warm and welcoming...

In early November my wife and I returned to Lava Tree Tropic Inn, this time with another couple, for the second time since March. The torrential rains and thunder and lightning added new and fascinating sounds to the natural charm of this wonderful place. A special treat was the ukulele jam session with Irene's friends and neighbors which usually takes...

Irene is a fantastic hostess and the Lava tree experience is something I'll not forget. Irene prepares a lovely tropical breakfast that no one can beat to the sound of ukuleles and slack key guitar, according to preference, all set in a tropical garden. Food is sourced locally and includes mangoes, papaya, pineapple, bananas, and avocado, with grain breads and...

The Inn is a plantation style house situated on a tropical property next to the Lava Tree State park. Irene is a generous host and passionate about Hawaiian culture. Before arriving at Lava Tree Tropic Inn she ensured that we knew how to get there and what to do if checking in after hours. My sister and I stayed in...

This B&B was a nice combination of comfy, clean, and homey, and the breakfasts were immense and delicious. Irene gave us a lot of good recommendations about the area and went swimming with us at the hot pond. Lovely, but I didn't like the fishes getting my feet! My boyfriend loved the Kapoho tidepools and we both loved seeing the...
