Directions were easy but in the daylight to first find the property. Very clean and just enough space for my husband and I. It is off the grid so be sure to stop on the way for food or anything you’ll need. There was limited items in kitchen but enough to get us through the weekend!

Staying here was an amazing experience that you would not get staying in town. The stars at night are unbelievable! So peaceful and quiet. So thankful that we took time to slow down and relax and enjoy this marvelous place. The walk to the cliffs was longer than it seemed, but so worth it! Beds were super comfy. We had no issues with power. Ron was very responsive with any questions I had. The neighbor got a little grumpy with the other people who were staying in the other unit. They were walking down to the water at 6:15pm and he yelled and swore at them because it was too late and going to get dark. Honestly, he was really just looking out for them, but had a little too much to drink, so he was loud and I seen. We walked it the next morning and he was kind and just warned us it was a long way and we better have good shoes on. There was a very nice woman that I talked to that owns property right here, but only has an outhouse on it. She comes sometimes from the mainland and just sleeps in her van right here. She gave us lots of great tips and a history of the area. The grumpy neighbor came up at night and was very loud and yelling at her about something, but she made sure to walk down with him away from this property so he wouldn’t disturb us. Overall, this was an experience of a life time and I wish I had more time to stay here.

We loved this place. The owner was quick to respond to any questions. We didn’t have any problems with neighbors. Would recommend taking owners advice and finding it while it’s still light outside. Can’t wait to make it back. The silence and stars at night and light showers in the morning with double rainbows was lovely.

If you are on the Big Island to visit the Volcano National Park, this property is in a good location. The shipping container home is divided into two separate spaces. There were two of us, and we were in the smaller space, which was fine for us. The property is off-grid, so if you want to use a lot of power, then don't stay here. If you want to unplug and sit on the deck, drink wine and look at the amazing star-filled sky, then do stay here. There isn't a lot of counter space and only one hot plate so cooking can be a challenge, but with a little planning, it's not bad. The coolest part for me was being surrounded by igneous rock (dried lava). It's in every direction as far as you can see. I would stay there again if I return to the island.

this is a perfect little place for a tranquil stay on the lava field, easy to find with the owner's instructions, has everything you need, enough off-grid power and water supply for the two of us, comfortable beds, all is neat and clean, having no A/C is ok in this breezy location (we had no encounter with the sometimes mentioned grumpy neighbor)

Ron has done a great job with designing this space. We stayed in the smaller half and had everything we needed for our stay. Ron was easy to get in touch with and responded right away to our questions. The gravel road is great to do your runs or walk/hikes on. It goes all the way to the sea arch if you’re up for a half marathon. No cars allowed though. The night sky is incredible and you can see the Milky Way clearly without a telescope. Hot Foot Photography is a must stop on the gravel road out to the container. Gary is a true “lava” buff and a fount of information on Kīlauea. His photographs are amazing. He welcomes visitors to share his vast knowledge of the volcano and also the area with. Meeting him and talking with him was one of the highlights of our stay in Hawaii.

Grumpy Neighbor Rules Non Disclosed Video Cameras Host Spies on Guests with Cameras Not enough back up battery power for crappy weather days ROACHES Neighbor with Junk - probably where roaches come from Nothing for Kids to do at ALL onsite - Should state this in posting!! Do not take your 80 year old mother here for her birthday either, they cannot walk on lava and so they are stuck at house or driving and driving and driving. Pay more for a place close to a beach so your elderly family members are not stuck!

Check in and property were exactly as described, clean and easy. Easy parking, the last 2ish miles of road are a bit rough. Directions are very straightforward. Views: Nighttime stars...moon over the water... old lava flows in morning... Incredible. The walk out to the water was well marked, bring gloves and good shoes and a camera.

Good size for Two people. Inexpensive basic stay. Everything was clean. Definitely get the correct directions while you are in a area with cell service and save it. We were already In a spotty signal when we got the final directions. Would have been nice to get something a day in advance. Had to double back . And bring drinking water. Not much of a kitchen set up. Huge sink for some reason and a bunch of utensils. And a microwave. There was an electric hot plate but nowhere to plug it in without moving stuff. Small coffee maker we plugged in infront of the mini fridge on the floor. And a Smokey Joe grill but no charcoal. So it's a good place for a stop over while doing things in the area not much to do there. Bed, shower, and stars.
