"This house was, without a doubt, the perfect family vacation home, even for our large family of 8."

The Ohana house at Volcano was an absolutely perfect match for our family and our 5 day stay on the Big Island. We came focused on exploring the east side of the Big Island and had a great time rambling around the Volcanos Nat'l Park and exploring Hilo and Honokaa. The house was very family-friendly, and included plenty of little kid-essentials like a high-chair and a playpen, very much appreciated by our 3-year old. The main room (shown in the primary photo) was great place for our three generations to hang out and converse. The altitude (~3500 ft) ensured that the evenings were cool and helped everyone relax after hiking and exploring. The kitchen was perfectly sized to support the mutual entertaining that the four families did.
The location for exploring the National Park could not be better, and we spent three days there. The fact that the volcano was erupting both into the sea as well as at the summit was a bonus! In summary, we had a great time in every aspect of our visit, and would highly recommend this house for anyone who wants to explore the eastern side of the Big Island.
Janet was very responsive. When we arrived the house (unknown to her) was not as advertised. She offered a full refund whether we stayed there or not for 2 nights. Very hospitable and wanting to make things right.
The best part of 7th Heaven was talking with you, John, knowing that you were right there to help with our stay. The home is lovely, furnished well with everything we needed. A spacious and comfortable space. Thank you for your care and kindness!
A comfortable, cozy vacation home in a serene, quiet environment. Thoughtfully equipped with a host of useful and convenient amenities, this is a private vacation home shared with you. The hosts make sure you have all the information you need and find help if required. The location couldn't be better to explore Volcanoes National Park and the ~3000 ft of altitude make for comfortably cool temperatures. A place for wildlife rather than nightlife - perfect for me!
Nice location, thoughtful owner, comfortable. my only concern is that is could of been cleaner, needs a little scrubbing of floors, kitchen area, etc. Otherwise we were satisfied and we only stayed two nights.
