Holiday Rental House
Volcano's Ohana House is the perfect home base for exploring the beautiful highlands of the Big Island. This popular three-bedroom plus loft home is roomy and secluded, just minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, situated amidst the magical rainforest filled with wild ginger, native Ohia and towering fern trees. Because it's nestled right at the edge of the forest on a half-acre, you'll find Ohana House to be private, peaceful and totally relaxing. Ohana means the 'Gathering' or 'Family' house in the Hawaiian language, and you'll find the Ohana House to be the perfect gathering place for your stay in Volcano.

About the neighbourhood
Please prepare yourself for a peaceful and relaxing visit to the tropical rainforest; it will be very different than the resorts with palm trees and umbrella drinks on the Kona side! Volcano is a nature-lover’s paradise. You’ll find many wonderful hiking trails in the area with varied topography and terrain — along with changing weather. It does rain in the rainforest, and mists are frequent; just keep in mind without the rain there wouldn't be delicious, fresh drinking water or the magical rainforest! Also remember that Ohana House is near 4,000 feet elevation so it can be cool in the evenings. Another blessing of our altitude: no mosquitoes! When you head down to Hilo it can be hot and humid, so be prepared.
How to get there
From Kona airport the quickest way to drive to Volcano (2+ hours) is via the Saddle Road (Hwy #190 to #2000) which will take you through Hilo where you might want to stop and get groceries. From Hilo airport is is 30 miles/45 minutes to Ohana House
