Overview

About the property

Volcano Rainforest Lodge - Private Craftsman Estate - Completed 12-2012

The Volcano Rainforest Lodge is a luxury craftsman estate in an ancient forest.

We are located only a few minutes from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park main entrance near Kilauea summit and the friendly artists community of Volcano Village. Volcano Rainforest Lodge is located in a secluded, private, 3-acre forest. Each room is designed to view the forest and lava outcroppings.

The lodge was designed with privacy in mind. No other guests will be on the property during your visit.

The lodge is a 2,300 square foot, one level, luxury home with three bedroom/bathroom suites, gourmet kitchen, living room with lava rock fireplace, 16' x 20' dining room, and over 1,400 square feet of covered, outside living area (lanai).

The Lodge has Mango flooring, and door/window trim. Mango is also used in the bathroom cabinets and mirror frames. The doors are solid core knotty Alder. The ceilings are beautiful Canadian Pine with Red Western Cedar beams from Oregon. Counter tops in the Lodge are granite. Bathroom walls and floors are gauged Quartzite.

This beautiful Lodge provides all the elements to make your vacation on the Big Island a memorable experience.

The Lodge is like a breath of fresh air amidst the beautiful forest of Ohias and Hapu'u tree ferns; a quiet place to relax and unwind, while being located close to the various adventures in the area.

The Lodge is available for weddings, parties, and corporate events. Please do not confuse our property with Volcano Rainforest Retreat.

Each of the king suites has a Kuerig coffee maker, microwave, private lanai, keyed exterior door, and a big screen TV. The lodge has DISH satellite television and high speed internet.

About Rob Owens

I have over fifteen years experience in the Hawaiian vacation rental business. I wanted guests to experience luxury and privacy in a Hawaiian/Craftsman home, while being able to view and enjoy ancient forests and lava features from every room and private lanais. I built this home to last for generations, with only high quality construction materials being used. The Volcano Rainforest Lodge took years to complete because great efforts were made to spare the forest and lava features. No bulldozer ever touched the lot with the utmost effort being made to protect the many endangered trees and plants on the grounds. The utilities were placed underground to maximize the views from The Lodge.

Rob Owens purchased this estate in 2006

Why Rob Owens chose Royal Hawaiian Estates

The property was chosen because of its location. While only minutes away from the national park, Volcano Village, and the golf course, the home site has a remote, rural feeling for those who desire privacy and quiet. The elevation of the lodge is about 3,025' and the daytime high temperature is rarely over 80. The property is within Hawaiian Orchid Island Estates. The square, three acre lot allows for an extensive hiking trail network exclusive to our guests. The property has numerous lava outcroppings to explore as well as 200-year-old Ohia trees, rare native plants, and 20' Hawaiian Hapu'u tree ferns. Construction of the Volcano Rainforest Lodge was completed in December 2012.

What makes this estate unique

The Lodge has over 1,400 square feet of covered, outside living area. Comfortable patio furniture surrounds the house for guests to enjoy the forest in every direction. After a day in the park guests may enjoy a relaxing rest in the hot tub while viewing the beautiful fern forest and stunning night skies. All of the lava excavated during construction was used in the foundation of the home, fireplace, and retaining walls. Exotic woods add to the beauty and elegance of The Lodge. A giant Mango tree which was blown down in a storm and blocked the highway is now our floor and trim. Come and enjoy this beautiful Hawaiian Craftsman home.

**New** Discounts for Golfing and equipment rental at Volcano Country Club and Golf Course. Ask Sharon.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Royal Hawaiian Estates was amazing. The property was beautiful and the home was exquisite. The attention to detail made our stay even more delightful. The owner's mother oversees the property and she was so welcoming and accommodating. She even had firewood set in the fireplace ready to light. The home is a bit remote but that adds to it's uniqueness. It's only minutes from the entrance of Volcano National Park. After a day of exploring the park and the beautiful Big Island, returning to this beautiful home was a pleasure. We would definitely stay here again. We had 7 in our group and had more than enough space. The home is very well stocked with anything you might need. The little personal touches made it feel special as well. Mahalo to Sharon and Rob for making this beautiful property available and for making our trip so enjoyable.

A beautiful home in a wonderful setting. One of the nicest VRBO homes that we've ever rented.

  • 5 of 5

It is a real treat to stay in this home. Once we were there we wished we had another day or two. The owners were exceedingly nice and helpful - and Sharon was a joy to talk to. The rain forest setting is fantastic and the proximity to Volcano National Park is very convenient. I would highly recommend this place to anyone interested in visiting this area. The only caution is that there are limited dining options in the area - its not a big problem, you just need to make dinner reservations somewhere.

Luxury stay while visiting Volcano Park

  • 5 of 5

This house was very impressive. Nestled in seclusion but only several miles from Volcano National Park, this comfortable home was a perfect stay for our family of five. It was very quiet and relaxing to stay here. Loved that it was only a few miles away from Volcano. The beds were very comfortable, the sheets were soft, and the house was very clean. My son especially loved the hot tub at night. You can tell the owners put a lot of thought in designing and building this home. Sharon, the property owner/manager, was a joy to meet and deal with. I would definitely stay here again!

The most beautiful house ever!

  • 5 of 5

We knew this house was going to be gorgeous based on the photos, but it is even better than what you see. Every little detail has been taken care of. In fact, I walked around the house taking mental notes about how to make my own house even more comfortable. The price is a bargain for what you get. Thank you Sharon for taking such good care of us!
