“Location and House Fantastic”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This house has everything you need in a home away from home. We loved our stay here and wished we had of been able to stay longer. As previous reviews state the house has everything you need and is lovely light and spacious. We were so glad that we elected to actually stay here rather than make the long journey from the other side of the island. We were here with our elderly parents and a seven year old and staying so close we were able to head back when everyone needed a break.
We loved the Jacuzzi out the back in the rain forest garden. I am not really a Jacuzzi person but it is in such a nice setting we did use it while we were there.
We didn't actually do any self catering whilst we were there but the kitchen looked amazing and had everything you could need to whip up a meal.
If you are travelling with family the rooms are all spaced out enough that you won't feel as though you are living on top of each other.
We have already recommended this house to friends and when we return would elect to stay longer next time to really enjoy the serenity.
Australian travellers may feel a little apprehensive paying up front for your whole stay but Adam is very professional and you won't be disappointed by the house. It really is as good as it looks in the photos.

“Perfect location for Volcano, comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed February 4, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed here in January 2013 with our extended family. It was within 10 minutes of Volcano National Park and so close that you could easily come back for lunch or a rest between hikes or to go back to the park for the night view of the crater. The bedrooms were very comfortable, the 2 and a half baths were a plus, and as everyone mentions, the woodwork that was done by the owner is lovely. The hot tub is in a nice setting in the yard. The convenience and comfort combined this into a perfect accommodation for us.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

A gorgeous house! Stunning wood, lovely decor, secluded hot tub under the stars and palm trees,, close to the volcano national park. I wish the owner would come and build some woodwork for our house! And, very thoughtful touches like a fridge well stock with fresh greens and breakfast items, shampoo in the showers, rooms heaters to take the chill off at night. The park is astounding and after hiking, it was heaven to come home to such a beautiful spot in a rainforest, with birds singing. Anyone would love this house. And try the great Thai restaurant nearby..amazing food! Thanks Adam !

“Need a Home Base at Volcanoes National Park? Stay at Hale Ma_ukele”
Reviewed January 22, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

My family of six adults traveled to Hawaii to hike Volcanoes National Park January 10-13, 2012. I searched Trip Advisor to find the perfect, local rental for the trip. After contacting six property managers and gettng prices and details, we chose Hale Ma_ukele based on its proximity to the park (~1 mile) and the good reviews and the property's nice pictures and website. We were very pleased with our choice. The home is beautiful, open and comfortable as described. Adam, the property manager, is very easy to work with and very responsive to emails. The property is well maintained and well-priced. It is so close to Volcanoes National Park that we were able to hike, return to Hale Ma_ukele for lunch, and then go back to the park again for more hiking. Our group agreed that Hale Ma_ukele is a superb property in a perfect location for families who want to maximize their time at Volcanoes. The first night, the hot tub didn't work, but Adam was very quick to have it fixed the next day and credited us to make up for our disappointment. If I were to plan the vacation again, I would definitely stay at Hale Ma_ukele for my Volcanoes National Park but would also plan in some time to stay at a beachfront resort as well. The Volcanoes area is a rain forest so it was a little rainier and cooler day and night at the property than I had expected.
