Tara Firma Inn – Volcano is enveloped in the Hawaiian rain forest. Come relax and enjoy. The smell of cedar meets at the door and welcomes you in. Giant ferns surround the house and it feels very pre-historic.

My family of 4 stayed in the Orchid Suite for 2 nights. The suite provided ample space for my two teenagers to spread out. Each morning we had a lovely continental breakfast with the highlight being a fruit honu. Delicious! The location was convenient for touring Volcanoes National Park, less than 10 minutes away.

We stayed two nights while visiting the Park. We only spoke with Fritz when we checked in and he handed us our receipt and insisted we check with a park ranger before going to Kalapana and considering hiring a local guide. The park ranger looked at us like we were crazy. The entire house smells of woodsmoke and you are truly in the Bell's home, not a traditional B&B set-up. They are on the other side of the living room wall and come out only to use their kitchen, which is not very clean and loaded with old margarine tubs. The sleeping room was quiet and comfortable, the upstairs bathroom is nice, but we felt the price was double what it should be for renting a bedroom in someone's mountain cabin.
