“Incredible Island find”
Reviewed May 5, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This house was awesome. Don't let the price fool you. Places like this could easily go for $600, $700, $800 a night or more. 6 of us stayed there and it easily holds 8 people. Is a mile from Volcano National Park. Great amenities. Full kitchen, outdoor grill. wood burning stove, washer/dryer. Covered porch.

“Beautiful Home”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great time staying here for two nights this summer. The house is very spacious and well equipped. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are beautiful. The hot tub was great after a long day of hiking.

“Peaceful, comfortable base for Volcano National Park”

person found this review helpful

We loved our stay in this beautiful house. 5 minutes from the National Park and much more comfortable than a hotel. Would absolutely recommend this house as a great base for the area. The beds are really comfortable and it is great being able to have some space when you're travelling with family! Hot tub is a bonus :)

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This house looked exactly like the pictures. 3 large bedrooms all with double beds, a beautiful quiet setting with a jucuzzi. The house was very clean and well stocked with food and fruit. It was very close to the volcano National Park where we were able to watch the lava glow at night from Volcano House.
Unfortunately, we only had 1 night in the house, but would love to have stayed longer. It was beautiful.

“Peaceful Base for the Big Island”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My wife and I stayed for about a week with my family (3 kids) and parents. The house could not have been nicer (clean, well maintained, comfortable beds, etc.). It was a much better alternative to any of the hotels on the Hilo side of the Island.

Communication with the manager was always promptly returned, and there were no problems with the rental.

Things went exactly as they should have.

“Our Volcano experience on the Big Island”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 for a stay in September 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We found Hale Apanane to be just as described and photographed on the Tripadvisor website.
The living area is downstairs along with a powder room and there are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs. There are night lights throughout the house which make the house quite safe to move about in if you need to throughout the night.
The house is extremely well-eqipped. The only problem we had was with the door of the combustion heater. The glass in the door had been removed and when we got in from watching the volcano at night (it gets VERY cold out there!) we were afriad to light it in case it put smoke throughout the house. We reported the problem to the housekeeper, but it was unable to be fixed whilst we were there. (3 nights) We were told to use the fire after that first night though.
The house is close to Volcano National Park, which was ideal for us and about 1/2 an hour to Hilo. It is 2 3/4 hours from Kona Airport though. Volcano is a quaint little township with a few art galleries and a coupke of general stores. Hale Apanane is in a lovely bushland setting on the other side of the highway to the township.
I would recommend it to others.

Thanks very much for your compliments, and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The glass on the wood burning stove was under repair, and it has now been replaced. Thanks again, and I hope you can visit Volcano again someday.

Aloha,
Adam
