Volcano, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
A secret house in a secret garden, the treehouse is a romantic perch in the rainforest for two to linger. There is a queen sized bed, cedar hot tub on the lanai, outdoor shower, food prep area, one bathroom with composting toilet, living room to relax & listen to music and watch videos or read and converse. The space is intimate and private, a playhouse for grownups. This is a real treehouse, a small space built mid canopy in the forest, overlooking tree ferns and almost eye level with the upper canopy. Contact us directly to book for ohana and kamaaina rates. These are not available through this booking platform. You can contact us through our Facebook page called Hawaii Treehouse or send us a message through this site. The treehouse is less than five minutes from the gate to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

We've never stayed in a treehouse before, so this was very exciting for us. We stayed here for part of our honeymoon, and couldn't be happier that we chose this over one of the regular resorts at Volcano National Park. I would not recommend this to anyone elderly however, just those looking for a little more excitement and adventure as it can be difficult getting up and down the ladder to the bedroom. The outdoor...

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the incredibly cool exotic treehouse at Kilauea Volcano. It is set in a lush rainforest yet quite easy to locate. Once you climb up the ladder your on a gorgeous veranda with a private hot tub with the trees and the birds as your only companions. Once inside there is a comfortable sitting room and al the kitchen essentials to feel quite at home....

This was such a great experience. The place is beautiful with great interior decorating. Gail made us feel welcome and we felt like this was our little getaway. So much nicer than just a room in a hotel. It is well equipped with a kitchen, hot tub, outdoor shower, linens, robes, comfy living room chairs, movies, music CDs, fireplace, etc. I could go on and on. So WONDERFUL!

My husband was very pleased when I told him that I'd booked a tree house for our time on the Big Island (2 nights). I know I could have found cheaper lodging, but it was worth the location and the enjoyment that we had while exploring the area. We arrived later than expected due to the weather that day. I contacted Rose and informed her that we were having difficulties due to weather. She stated...

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, especially with so many details. The red leather chairs - it seems we should point out that they can be rearranged into a love seat, with the ottoman large enough for both sets of feet. The towel container top can be turned over so it turns into a sofa side...

Treehouse. Bucket List. Fulfilled. It was magical. The property, from the moon gate to the winding path, to the diverse and fragrant orchids in the Ohia trees, to the magnificent tree house itself... utterly enchanting. Every detail was perfect. The tree house was an architectural phenom. Hand carved doors, custom stained glass windows, thoughtfully and outfitted kitchen were extra special. Of great fun is the bedroom, by which access up a narrow ladder is afforded...

Management response:

Thank you so much for sharing your joy. Our vision of the treehouse is as a portal to the wonders of Volcano. You honor us as we attempt to honor the place. Mahalo nui.
