The Maluhia Guest House is a five bedroom, 3 bath home located on the slopes of Kilauea on the island of Hawaii. It is just two miles away from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in the quaint village of Volcano. This huge house with all the amenities and built by the owners was where their four children were raised. It is located in the rainforest and is the perfect place for a mountain vacation where it is cool and relaxing.
The Maluhia Guest House has a full kitchen, a large dining room, a reading room, a laundry room with a grand living room with a fireplace. The open concept design enables the dynamics of a large group to ebb and flow from one conversation area to the next.
The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with most rooms fitted with queen sized beds. The master bedroom has a king sized bed. Most of the bedrooms look out onto the canopy of the 'ohi'a trees, a native species, where native birds such as the 'apapane and i'iwi can be seen flitting among the branches. Lush giant tree ferns and flowering plants complete the landscaping.
Volcano is the perfect place for people who love the mountains. Exploring the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a must with optional hiking, educational trips, and photo opportunities. At the Kilauea Military Camp, guests can go bowling or play in the arcade. There is a restaurant, the Crater's Edge, that serves buffets for a very reasonable price. Or have a meal at the Volcano House and enjoy a stupendous view of the crater. Golfers can play at the Volcano Golf Course. The Volcano Village has two art galleries, five restaurants, an orchid garden, a glass firing studio, and gift shops. Visiting the Sunday Farmers' Market at the Cooper Community Center is a perfect opportunity to meet the local residents.
Volcano is also the perfect pace to sit back, relax, breathe in the cool mountain air, and just do nothing. The Maluhia Guest House is in a very quiet neighborhood. The evenings are quiet, and dark. Go to sleep to the sound of crickets outside. If you are lucky enough to be in Volcano during a full moon, make time to watch the moon rising from among the native trees.
The hosts, Don and Mililani Hughes, have lived in Volcano since 1981. They are retired educators and school administrators. Their mission is to make their motto come alive for all guests: Where Hawaiian hospitality is alive and well. They go out of their way to optimize the Volcano experience for their guests.TripAdvisor property ID 3074190...Read more
