Holiday Rental House
This home-away-from-home vacation-rental cottage is on a forested acre of land with two other cottages. Kahi Malu shares a driveway with our studio cottage (Kate's Volcano Cottage, listed separately) but each has its own parking space and privacy. The kitchen is well stocked with the less-perishable breakfast foods and lots of cookware. The cottages are an eight-minute drive from the entrance of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (HVNP). Kahi Malu is filled with information about HVNP, with books, DVDs, and maps offering insights into the Park. Your host, Kathryn, will give you a tour of the cottage, after you have checked in, and show you the maps of the Park and make suggestions for how best to explore it and the island.
