“Cool and Unique place to stay”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The Treehouse was awesome - a completely unique place to stay. The rental was clean and well-appointed, and the bed was comfy. We had a really relaxing time, and couldn't get over. Not quite as remote as we expected, but that's probably for the better. Probably the best outdoor shower in America. It takes a minimal amount of effort to learn how to use the propane stove and composting toilet that might turn off some, but they weren't an issue at all for my wife or I. I would recommend it to anyone who is mobile enough to navigate to and through the property. If you're looking for a little more than the 'condos, resorts, and golf' face of Hawaii, then you'd be hard pressed to do better.

Aloha ~ Thanks for the tremendous shower endorsement. The off-grid challenges are mostly dealt with by Noe and Rose who service the propane and the composting toilet. It is a different concept to turn human waste into garden soil, and one we think is worth exploring. There in the treehouse, you get to see how that works. It is like being a part of an eco-experiment. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Mahalo for the review.

“So much fun!”

The treehouse was cute and very fun! We loved the very short walk through the rainforest to get to the treehouse. We took many photos before even entering. Everything you need is right there. There is a stove and mini fridge available if you need to cook something up. The bathroom was clean and easy to use. There is a television with dvd available if you want to relax watching a movie or listen to music. Sitting in the hot tub at night, listening to the sounds of the forest was amazing. I had a couple questions and they quickly texted me back which I appreciated. I would definitely recommend the treehouse. The only thing I would suggest is bringing some ear plugs because when it does rain, the rain and drops from the trees onto the roof can be loud for a light sleeper. Don't miss out on this experience!

Aloha! Thanks for giving us a review. Good advice for the light sleepers. Living in the rainforest, we are always happy when it rains at night. We imagine we are being giving the gift of night time rain and daytime sun - always hoping for that arrangement, and used to the sound of rain on the roof. Mahalo!

Reviewed 12 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Background: we were travelling independently around California and Hawaii and were keen to avoid standard hotel stays.
Arrival: met by a delightful lady who showed us around and explained everything.
Accommodation: this is an unbelievable experience, beautifully designed, super comfortable bed, plenty of hot water for the outside shower, lovely fire that heated the room up almost instantly, quiet, dark and wonderful.
Observations: compost toilet, everyone should have one.
Area: 5 minutes from the National Park and the village.

“Best way to celebrate an Anniversary!”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Every expectation was met and exceeded to the fullest! The treehouse was comfortable and clean with all the amenities we needed. The hot tub was steaming when we arrived! Noe was great to come and make sure the next morning the hot tub was ready to go and we had everything we needed. She was so sweet and friendly! The details in the treehouse made me swoon. I loved the thought and care it must have taken to build and design such a wonderful structure. The location was absolutely perfect! We spent the two days here at the Volcano Park and were so happy to have the treehouse close enough we could come back and rest/eat. We LOVED the Kileuea Lodge. Breakfast/lunch/dinner it all was delicious and the staff was friendly. We had lots of rain and cool weather, which is exactly what we were hoping for! We loved being able to bundle up and enjoy the surroundings.

Aloha ~ Very happy the stay met your expectations. For those who are not Hawaii residents, the idea of bundling up may seem oddball here. But as a respite from the summer heat, the cool mountaintop, a steaming hot tub, a room with a fireplace for warmth are welcome changes. Mahalo!
