In the Hawaiian language, a 'kipuka' is a kind of oasis. It can be an island of forest surrounded by lava fields, or an opening within a forest, or even a dwelling, a home within the forest. This is our Kipuka -- a custom-designed cottage, a vacation home for you here on Hawai'i Island (''the Big Island'') just minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Huge windows look out onto the native forest. The loft makes you feel like you're in a nest among the birds. We also have a fully-equipped kitchen and deep bathtub. We look forward to sharing our secluded cottage with you. Questions? Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: GE-95-225-2416-01...In the Hawaiian language, a 'kipuka' is a kind of oasis.

This unique home is a good base for couple of small family on a trip to the Volcano Park. Staying in Volcano saves a lot of driving and maximizes your time in the park. It was slightly hard to find, because of the overall-jungulation in...More

This retreat lived up to our expectations. Very close to the National Park entrance and a quick drive to Hilo. Secluded and private and very minimalistic. We wanted to be free from technology and just relax. That was easily accomplished here. They do have WiFi...More

About the neighbourhood
Kipuka Cottage is a 7-minute drive from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, complete with its own erupting volcano which you can drive up to and safely watch from several park viewing places. There are also many miles of hikes, ranging from short walks to back-country camping treks up the mountain and down to the sea. Also, just a few minutes from our Kipuka Cottage is friendly little Volcano village, with two general stores, and a few good restaurants ranging from fine continental dining and Thai cuisine to takeout sandwiches and soups. If you're here on a Sunday, don't miss the community market at Cooper Center with lots of fresh and prepared local dishes and products.
How to get there
There are two airports on our island. Hilo International is closer, about 40 km (25 miles) from Kipuka Cottage. On the other side of the island is the Kona Airport, which is a good 2-plus hours' drive away. When you make your reservation, we will send you detailed driving instructions (a car is essential) and GPS coordinates.
