We love this place, and we love the innkeeper, Irene. Great location, wonderful hospitality and amazing breakfast! DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE LAVA FLOW!!! In fact, despite any tragic loss of property, this is an amazing time to visit the Big Island and Pahoa village -- all the historic areas are safely away from the flow, but a local grocery and...

My one week stay at Lava Tree Tropic Inn couldn't have been more excellent. A beautiful host and an idyllic setup made it easy for me to explore The Big Island while staying in a rain forest paradise. The host was more than helpful with providing me with tips for exploring Hawaiʻi (even snorkeling gear can be borrowed to explore... More

Just an idyllic setting, lovely hostess with knack for putting you at your ease and getting the guests to enjoy each others company around a communal breakfast table with homemade treats. Clean large rooms most with shared second floor veranda some have en-suite. Large very comfortable and well decorated communal areas. Near the coast for tidal pools for excellent snorkelling...

It's a real rain forest paradise, in the middle of a huge tropic estate. The owner is fantastic just as the breakfasts she prepares. The building and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and have a special atmosphere blending European and Tropic styles. The location is excellent to make excursions to the Volcano, to waterfalls and the Ocean with the hot... More

We spent 5 days in Lava Tree Tropic Inn with my family, and it was one of the most magical places I've ever been to! Irene, the owner, is so sweet, we had wonderful breakfasts, fruits from the garden, the rooms are lovely and you can see the beauties of the rainforest from the window. The wonders of the big...

We had a great time at the Lava Tree Tropic Inn. Especially the owner, her hospitality and the rainforest surrounding made it an outstanding stay. The room was big, clean and quiet, so we can recommend this Inn to everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Lava Tree Tropic Inn. The room was spacious and opened onto an upstairs balcony. Our bathroom was down the hall but was not shared with others at the inn. The inn is at the end of the road in the middle of nowhere just past the Lava Tree State Park -... More

The BnB's location is unique: in the middle of the rain forest. The garden is paradise-like and delivers the fresh ingredients of the rich and relaxing breakfast: Papaya, passion fruits, pineapple, bananas and avocado. The host is very friendly and provides tips for the 1000 things you can explore from here ( lava watching, hikes, swimming in naturally heated pools,... More

We bought out the entire Inn for our wedding. Irene is amazing -- fantastic breakfast, wonderful hospitality, and a great B&B that is really like someone's real home. If you want one of those prissy B&Bs with teddy bears and cutsie bric-a-brack, then go somewhere plastic, new, and with no soul. The nasty reviews are from people who probably need... More

My wife and I had a lovely stay in the Lava Tree Inn. Situated on the East side of the island away from the large tourist areas and in huge grounds of the national park adjacent to where you can see formations of lava that many years ago bound around the trees leaving huge statues of lava. We found the... More
