“Queen Emma - Perfect place to relax after busy days at Volcano National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We booked the room Queen Emma because of the recommendations on Trip Advisor and were also fortunate to get a coupon for $99 per night. The room had a very comfortable big bed, modern bathroom and kitchen, and a nice electric fireplace to warm up at night. There was a nice arrangement of fresh fruit and breakfast supplies which we enjoyed. The comfy bathrobes were perfect to snuggle into after a nice hot evening shower after a long day of hiking. The staff was very nice and pleasant! It was a joy to stay here!

Aloha LindaA99!

Mahalo for taking the time to write a review of 5th Street Ohana. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time at our property. Our location is ideal for spending your day(s) inside the national park and relaxing at our "home away from home" just 5 miles outside the park entrance.

We hope to see you again in the near future!

This property is way better than staying at a hotel. We were a large group and we took up the entire property. The property is nice size with two kitchens, two bathrooms, outside porch, and a relaxing feel after hiking.
We traveled on a budget and we used the kitchen as if it were mom's place. If you need a place to stay in Volcano and you want to make sure it is nice and not too expensive, this is it.

Mahalo nui loa for such a kind review. We were happy to host your family during your time in the Volcano area.

Our 5th Street Ohana property has an ideal set up for families wanting to save money by cooking meals in their "home away from home". The kitchens are fully stocked with pots, pans, cooking utensils, plates, bowls and more! Cooking in our spacious kitchens that over look the Hawaiian landscape is an experience not to be missed.

We stayed here because of the cost seemed good for what was offered. We found the little bungalow on 5th Street to be a nice, economical place for a stop to visit the volcano.
The place was clean, new, fresh and comfortable. Much better than a place we stayed in Hilo.

Mahalo nui loa for taking the time to write a review on 5th Street Ohana. We are so glad that you found 5th Street Ohana quiet, comfortable and affordable.

We believe that traveling should be relaxing and comfortable, just like home.

Thank you again for the review and we hope to see you again on your next trip to the Big Island. -5th Street Ohana Staff

5th Street Ohana is peaceful serenity in the area of volcano. We had a memorable vacation and enjoyed our stay at this beautiful and peaceful setting only a couple of miles from the Hawaii volcano national park.
For the price we were shocked to get such great beds and pillows. The entire house felt new and very clean.
If you are going to the Big Island and you want a place that is quality for a reasonable price I suggest you give it a try.
Our only issue was parking when other guests were at the property as well. But, that was a minor moment as the other guests didn't seem to know what to do.
The basket of goodies made us smile big.

Mahalo for the review. Your words have brought a smile to our faces!

This property has been operating since late 2011. The two units, Sir Spencer and Queen Emma, were fully furnished just prior to opening the property to visitors. We offer our guests top quality linens and bedding in order to fulfill our goal of being a 5 star facility. Our unbeatable location in the rainforest makes for a private retreat while still being in close proximity to the Volcanoes National Park.

We are happy to know that you enjoyed your time with us! We hope to see you again in the future.

We had a BRILLIANT time at this lovely little place. It was exceptionally clean - spotless in fact. The furnishings and decor were very nice. We had the studio and my son slept on the sofa bed. Everything has been thought of here. Torches, umbrellas, books, DVDs p, shampoo/conditioner etc. Nothing is forgotten! We taxed 2 nights and found it be a lot like home. It is remote, very private and quiet. After a long day exploring the park this is wonderful. My son who is 12 also enjoyed the large concreted area (like a verandah or pergola) out front - he could play here for a while. I also got a great rate! Highly recommend this place. Very nice indeed. Had a truly lovely time here.

Room Tip: Hidden gem! Shop in Hilo first though. Visit the local Thai restaurant. The food is AMAZING

Mahalo for taking the time to write a review of our 5th Street Ohana property. It is our goal to provide a 5 star experience and provide all the comforts of home, and we are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us! The covered lanai (porch) is a great place to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the property. It's a great for kids to play or for the adults to enjoy that freshly brewed, morning cup of coffee.

Thank you for providing the excellent tip to shop in Hilo prior to coming to this area. Shopping is limited in Volcano Village and Hilo or Kona will provide a nice selection of grocery stores.

We appreciate hearing from you and hope to see you again in the future! Mahalo!

We stayed at 5th Street O'hana this summer because of a family friend. He took care of all the arrangements and made our stay perfect.
We were in the Queen Emma while our friends stayed in the Sir Spencer. We had a chance to look at both places and we were impressed.
Queen Emma was done in earth tones with one big bed and a pull out couch.
Sir Spencer was done in red and black tones. I asked the owner why those colors? The response was that they were the colors of the volcano. Dah.
It was a nice place to stay and we had a wonderful time.

Mahalo for the review of 5th Street Ohana. At 5th Street Ohana we specialize in providing our guests with top quality amenities to make their Hawaiian vacation more memorable. Comfortable and cozy are just two words that describe Queen Emma and 5th Street Ohana. 5th Street Ohana provides fresh fruit, juice, water, milk, tea, coffee, eggs, and bread; enough food to start your morning off in the right direction. As well as housekeeping services for longer stays.

Both units at 5th Street Ohana are tastefully decorated to reflect Volcano: Earth and Fire. Enjoy both the active volcano and the native rainforest while visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. After a long day of traveling or sight-seeing, why not relax at our spacious house with the perks of a small bed and breakfast?
