We decided to stay two nights near the volcano, to get the most of our volcano experience. What a great decision! Through an Internet search, we found "Hawaii Volcano Vacations". They manage several cottage rentals, one of which is Baan Sabai Dee. It is a 3-bedroom cottage, in the middle of the rain forest, only a couple of minutes (drive) from the entrance to Volcanoes National Park. After spending a good part of the day exploring the volcano, you can go back to a quiet, relaxed setting... rest up in your own private hot tub... then go back to the volcano and watch the flowing lava light up the night sky as it meets the ocean. We used this destination as a little break from the sand and ocean. After visiting Maui for a few days, we flew to the Big Island, drove right to our volcano vacation rental, then drove to the Kohala coast via Hilo for a few more days of sand and sun. This also allowed us to experience the entire Big Island. It is definitely worth it to stay (at least) a couple of nights near the Volcano! Baan Sabai Dee was an excellent choice!
