We spent a quiet, peaceful weeknight at Lava Tree Tropic Inn and were served a delightful breakfast on the lanai in the morning. It is on a large estate just out of town. The garden is beautiful and the owner is delightful. Koa wood stairs really caught my eye as did the mosaic art inlaid in the floor around the...

We spent two nights at this lovely place. The house, garden, surroundings, fruit trees are amazing. We stayed in a cozy room with bathroom, and unique furnishings. The breakfast was very delicious, tasty and homely. Irene is very gracious host, and her guests are kind also. If in the future we will visit Hawai'i we would like to spend more...

A great retreat in the rainforest, very close to many attractions in the west side of the island. Pahoa is very close as are the rocky beaches of the west. Family-like atmosphere with long, enjoyable and delicious breakfasts. Irene's fruit salad is irreplaceable.

Irene was so attentive and accomodating that she provided sufficient and necessary information for us. Room was clean, cozy, and comfortable. The isolated place will make you feel relaxed and different from daily life.

My daughter and I loved the serenity of the place. But! If you are in night life - this is not your place. The nearest town is about 3 miles away (to taxi), and has just a handful places to eat or have a drink. The breakfast is THE BEST EVER! The owner had all healthy and most delicious choices:...

I had such a fantastic stay at the Lava Tree recently. I loved how comfortable the host, Irene, made it feel. I would stay there again. I enjoyed the people and the grounds around the Inn. Mahalo Irene!

This was a state-of-the-art 5 bedroom home built in the early 1980's. It is not a modern house, nor is it a hotel. There is a 350 meter long single car track leading to the property, then a massive gate to slide open (and close), and a long curved driveway leading to the house. Irene prepares freshly squeezed starfruit juice...

We stayed here because it's close to the lava flow and were pleasantly surprised. It's in a beautiful setting in the forest with incredible nighttime wildlife sounds. The owner is very friendly and cooks a great fresh breakfast with eggs from her own chickens and fruit from her own trees.

I have stayed in Lava Tree Tropic Inn with my husband and a friend for a week in Aug 2016 and it was awesome! The inn is located in a forest area in the Pahoa aera, just by the Lava Tree State Park. It's a not a fancy chain hotel, but, in my opinion, much better than that. We felt...
