Hawaiian Hospitality on Kiluea's edge

4.6 on March 02, 2015

We loved our stay at Aloha Happy Place. We felt steeped in Hawaiian history viewing the photos on the wall and the books in the library. A comfortable bed with a lush duvet gave us a great night's sleep. Great homemade breakfast. Joan the owner is a delight. We'd stay there again anytime!


A lovely place to stay-true Volcano Village feel

4.0 on January 01, 2015

We stayed at Aloha Happy Place late December, 2014. It was a quick trip to Volcano, Hi, but our hard-working host Joan made sure we felt welcome and comfortable. The room was bright, airy and clean, with vintage touches and a large, vintage bathroom. The property is large, with goats, chickens, and cats we could watch from our room. It was quiet. The weather was cool and foggy, but the beds were warm and comfortable. A wonderful trip. A delicious breakfast featuring local fruits was served.


Thoughtful

The cottage does not have heat but the owner had the dehumifider on all day before our arrival so it wasn't that cold. When I told her we were from Kona (hot)and wimpy about the cold she gave us sweats to wear - very thoughtful.


Happiness Found

5 on November 07, 2014

We were planning on staying at the Volcano House, but their website was hard to find. What came up in our search was a number of B&B's. we Chose Aloha Happy Place and we are glad we did. We spent three nights there and had a great time. The room was comfortable and spacious. Continental Breakfast came with the room, lots of fresh fruit, homemade breads, coffee, juice and cereal. Joan, the owner was there every morning to greet us and make sure everything was OK. She also grows her own fruit and vegetables as well as raising chickens goats and sheep on her farm, we got a tour of the farm and learned a lot about her self sustaining farm. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The Inn also had a very comfortable library/sitting room where you could go and relax after dinner or after coming back from a hike. WiFi worked great and was free! All in all a great place to stay, only a couple of miles from the park entrance. Would definitely recomend this as a great place to stay.


Another wonderful visit to Volcano, Hawaii

If you visit hawaii and the volcano area, best place to stay for 1-3 days, simple, really quite, we only stayed 1 night but really apreciate, clean, close by volcano national park. The room had old furniture but well maintained. it's very causy...... would go back any time...


A wonderful down home place to stay!

4.6 on September 02, 2014

The house was so charming and warm from years of love and sense of family. Our room was decorated beautifully with everything we needed to be entirely comfortable...including fresh gardenias in the hallway to welcome us. I felt lucky to have been able to experience this wonderful place!


our 4th visit!

3.2 on September 02, 2014

We have stayed at this "Happy Place" 4 years in a row. It's clean, quiet and very charming. Our room has always been a welcome place to end a day of sight seeing. This year we brought our daughter, son-in-law and grandson (9 years). They really enjoyed the experience. If you want a unique place that's off the beaten path to rest your head, this is for you. If you like a lot of fanfare, then this is not your place. Aloha, Mike&Becky P.S. this in doesnt offer food service. It wasn't unsatisfactory,.......the website doesn't let us skip the rating for dining.
