Holiday Rental House
EXPERIENCE OLD HAWAII …in this unique, plantation-style vacation rental named for the kupukupu fern. The word kupu simply means “to grow or sprout” and this cottage honors one of the first plants to bring life back to the land after a devastating lava flow, initiating the coming of the forest. The Hawaiians believe that the kupukupu fern is symbolic of growth and new beginnings and that with each new frond comes new opportunity, new experiences, and a fresh start. Hale KupuKupu is constructed from old growth redwood planks in the single wall design traditional to the islands during the plantation period of the 1930s and ‘40s.

The word kupu simply means “to grow or sprout” and this cottage honors one of the first plants to bring life back to the land after a devastating lava flow, initiating the coming of the forest. The Hawaiians believe that the kupukupu fern is symbolic of growth and new beginnings and that with each new frond comes new opportunity, new experiences, and a fresh start. Hale KupuKupu is constructed from old growth redwood planks in the single wall design traditional to the islands during the plantation period of the 1930s and ‘40s. Louvered jalousie windows allow the trade winds and mountain breezes to keep the house cool during the day and a fire in the wood-burning stove can warm the evening chill that comes with the higher elevation. VACATION RENTAL IS A BLENDING OF CULTURES Decorated in a style that honors the Island’s blending of Hawaiian and Asian Cultures, the home has two cozy bedrooms and a Balianese daybed in the living room allowing it to sleep up to five people comfortably. Hale KupuKupu offers a quiet and tranquil experience, reminiscent of a lifestyle from an era gone-by. The outside surroundings of the house provide natural beauty and unmatched privacy. CLOSE TO VOLCANO NATIONAL PARK Hale KupuKupu is nestled in a beautifully landscaped park-like setting on 1 acre with over half an acre in standing rain forest for the ultimate privacy and tranquility. The residence is located in Old Volcano Village and is walking distance to many amenities. These include several diverse restaurants, 2 convenience stores, 2 gas stations, a launderette, a post office, a nearby local winery, an 18-hole golf course, gift shops, art galleries and “da” best Sunday morning farmer’s market at Cooper Center located just blocks away. The house is just five minutes from the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Once in the park you can take a hike across the floor of Kilauea-Iki crater or to Halema’u ma’u, home of the fire goddess Pele or you can climb through the volcano’s many lava tubes. Hale KupuKupu’s location puts you about 60 minutes from Ka Lae (South Point) & Green Sand Beach and Punalu’u Black Sand Beach where you may see turtles nesting and swimming. You are also 40 minutes away from historic and beautiful downtown Hilo with restaurants, shops, museums and nearby snorkeling beaches.
