Nice place close to Volcano National Park

3.4 on April 04, 2015

The directions given to find the place were good. Our host was quite helpful in suggesting sites to visit and things to do. She had tips for where to buy food in Volcano. We had a nice stay in a beautiful out-of-the-way place.

Always a delight, highly recommend

This was our fourth stay at Halana Lodge on our annual visit to the Big Island. We always look forward to staying here and enjoy the spacious house out in the country near Volcano. We made Halana our base for a week while exploring the Eastern side of the island. It was such a great place to come back to each night and relax. Mahi is a superb host! Excellent local and knowledge of the island, she is always willing to share that knowledge so guests have the best experience during their stay. Comfortable, relaxing, quiet oasis, my wife and I will definitely be back next year!

Our Second Stay in this Paradise

4.6 on February 22, 2014

This is the second year we have stayed here on our annual visit to the Big Island. This year we brought our mothers who are in their 80's. I mention this because they found this special place to be as inviting and comfortable as my wife and I. Mahi is a first rate host and is very informative about the local area, attractions and events. The house is spacious and comfortable, the sleeping rooms as well. We enjoy the quiet 'country' feel of the property and the surroundings, yet it is close by to many of the things we enjoy doing on this part of the Big Island. Next year we are going to extend our stay to several rather than a couple of nights and make the easy drives to points north and south from here, as well as the National Park. We highly recommend this as a quality place to stay, you wont be disappointed!

A perfect retreat to the country!

Our next visit to the big island will include a week here. It's such an inviting house with spacious rooms and ample common area to relax inside, or out on the big deck. We like the solitude, yet it's so close to Volcano National Park, Hilo and southern beaches. The small village of Volcano has many great places to eat. The hospitality here is top notch and the wealth of local knowledge makes guiding guests to a great vacation experience a certainty! This was our second stay here, it won't be our last, highly, highly recommend!

Met people from opposite ends of the world!

3.2 on January 10, 2014

The great thing about staying here is meeting people from all over the world! This time we met people from Sweden and Singapore. We traded Christmas traditions and shared places to explore and visit in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. January happened to be "Volcanoes Awareness Month" with special events at the Visitor Center.

A quiet gem

4.4 on August 01, 2013

We visited from the UK in December 2012 (it takes me a long time to get around to reviewing). After an initial misunderstanding over our arrival date, our host couldn't have been more welcoming. The lodge is very peaceful and was a couple of miles out of the National Park. Accommodation was very comfortable, and facilities excellent. An added bonus was the local knowledge and recommendations (dispensed over breakfast) of what places we shouldn't miss on Big Island during our stay: star-gazing from Mauna Kea with experts from the observatories was amazing, and not in our guide books.

Great place

4.4 on March 14, 2013

We had a great stay at the Halana Lodge. It is very peaceful and Mahi was eager to share her knowledge of local attractions. Concerns were addressed immediately. We certainly won't hesitate to stay here again.

A Pleasant Stay

3.8 on March 10, 2013

Location is peaceful and quiet, and convenient to Hawaii Volcanoes Nat'l Park. Stayed in the Emperor's Master Suite, which has a large bedroom and bath that were very nice. There is a large tub (and separate shower) in the bath, and a wood burning stove in the bedroom. We were so busy site seeing in the area, I wish we had an evening just to enjoy the room. The elevation make this a cool area at night. A bath robe would be nice to have, and bringing a few fire logs from the store would make starting a fire in the wood stove quick and easy. The continental breakfast included tropical fruit, cereal, cinnamon rolls, and juice. I would stay here again.

A fabulous place in the rain forest

4.6 on February 09, 2013

My niece from Switzerland and I loved the place. It was exactly what we were looking for, a cozy place in the rain forest away from urban areas and conveniently located near the volcano. It's great for hiking in Volcano National Park and for traveling by car around Big Island and the owner is the best travel guide. Trust her and follow her advice and you'll get to experience Big Island like nobody else. Franz J

Great place to relax, write, or do research

4.6 on January 19, 2013

I really love coming to Halana Lodge. I come every chance I get. I recently hosted a weekend seminar here and we had the whole house for a weekend. Everyone enjoyed their stay and said that they would like to come back next year. We had a couple cater the meals which were excellent. So we had lots of time to interact in the seminar. The evenings were relaxing around the fireplaces and the hot tub.
