“Peaceful volcano retreat”
Reviewed January 8, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We loved staying in the Hiker's rain forest retreat. Volcano was a great place to stay for easy access to the national park. We were just minutes away. The garden was beautiful and so was the accommodation. The hikers retreat was so peaceful, we just wanted hang out with the door open and listen to the sound of the birds.
Dale took us out on a bird and local plant walk during our stay. He is very knowledgeable and a great local guide!
Next time we are in Volcano, we would definitely stay here again.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed November 25, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

What an amazing place to spend 3 nights! The house is fabulous as the garden and pond. It has everything we needed... even a double shower! The owners were always available to answer our questions! Our little paridise at night fall!

A must!

“Best Place We Have Stayed on Hawaii”
Reviewed March 7, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

While my girlfriend was reluctant to stay at a vacation rental property (typically opting for resorts), I am pleased to say that the Hiker's Retreat was one of her favorite places we have stayed on any of the Hawaiian islands.

The small guest house was exactly as advertised. It was quaint and comfortable. My girlfriend thought the property looked better than it did in the pictures. While certainly not as luxurious or as spacious as some larger resorts, the Hiker's Retreat was very clean and comfortably furnished.

Best of all, the property is nestled into jungle. The sound of rain falling at night and the surreal jungle surroundings made for a truly unique experience. I would strongly recommend the property. It was a remarkable value given the price-point.

“Comfortable. exotic and beautiful”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

We were staying in this fantastic place almost a week in August 2013. The hosts were great - caring, polite, gentle. The cabin were more like a small house - comfortable, with whole wall window in real tropical forest. Nearby little pond with golden fish. All outdoor area greatly maintained. Very quiet and relaxing after busy day hiking and touring. All amenities - park entrance, restaurant, shop just a short drive. Certainly it is a great value for money, great place to base for adventure and exploration of this amazing island.

“Enchanted Volcano Layaway”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This place exceeded our expectations. The pictures looked lovely but it was truly a heavenly retreat after a day of hiking in HVNP. The room is surrounded by lush ferns and feels larger than its size due to the high ceilings and skylights. The gas stove added warmth and a cozy feeling. The shower was amazing.

“Cute, cozy, and private”

This is a great affordable place to stay near the volcano national park. Within a mile to restaurants and grocery. We never saw the owners or our neighbors staying in the cabins next door. I was impressed by the layout; it is about the size of a hotel room, but more tastefully built. There is a small gas fireplace which worked very well on cold mornings. It also has a small deck overlooking the Koi pond. We especially appreciated having a selection of DVDs and games, since there is not much to do in this area other than hiking around the volcano.

The only thing I felt was missing was a full door to the bathroom instead of (beautiful but very short) Japanese saloon-style doors.
