This is a fairly remote, off-grid house that's on a beautiful piece of land. The electricity is based on solar, water is collected from rain, and uses propane for the stove and hot water. There is a mini fridge, stovetop, silverware, pots, pans, cooking utensils, dishes, towels, cups, etc. for you to use. The hosts are very kind, greeted us when we got there, and waved us off when we left.

We had a few rainy days and the solar couldn't keep up. That's OK because there was a battery pack for power and cooler for our fridge items. I recommend brining a flashlight and grabbing some ice when you are in town, just in case.

Just remember, this is an off-grid house. There's no AC and power relies on solar!! We would definitely come back and absolutely loved the place!!

Had a nice time exploring the east side of the island and staying in Mountainview. Roco is a lovely dog to play with while staying here.

This hip camp was amazing! This place allowed us plenty of room to relax, cook, and play games. The property provided a great out door environment with the luxuries of a hot shower and fresh rainwater. 10/10 recommend!

We had a lovely stay at Lava Rock Camp. Sanna was the absolute best hostess and the place was stocked with everything you may need. Falling asleep to the sounds of the rainforest and enjoying the tropical rain was just incredible! We enjoyed our cozy home away from home after our days of exploring Volcano National Park and Hilo. The sweet dog was the absolute hardest part to leave as he was such a love. Thank you for helping to make our vacation cozy and treasured!

Amazing property and very cool and cozy spot. Lots of sustainable elements and truly living simply and off grid here. Intenernet worked well, just have to be careful of your power consumption at night due to the solar system and battery capacity.

We stayed at the this lovely tree house for 2 nights, wished we had stayed longer. Sanna the host was really nice she showed us the place and how to use everything. The tree house has everything you need to make you feel comfortable. You are surrounded by trees and at night you hear the coqui frogs, it gives the place a unique atmosphere. I recommend this place to everyone, if you are looking for fun stay this is your place.

If you're looking for an awesome remote destination to relax off the grid, this is your spot! We loved the treehouse! The sound of the frogs and rain will put you right to sleep each night. Loved being close to Volcano NP, as well. Thanks for everything, Sanna!

While off-grid, Sanna & Reese's treehouse had everything you could need: lights, full kitchen, hot shower, outdoor cold shower, comfortable beds, and of course the lovely backdrop of the rainforest and all its critters. When the bio toilet pump wasn't working well, Reese had it replaced the next morning! Warning: don't leave any food in the kitchen area, which I wish we were warned about. Our bread bag got chewed into on our first night, which was a bummer. They were also building a second cabin right next door during our stay so beware of noise. Mosquitoes were pretty active, but not surprising given you're in the trees and you're on the wetter side of the island. All in all, I absolutely loved staying here. Sanna and Reese are incredibly nice, and I'm jealous of their property!

Aloha Andrew! It was our pleasure to have you and your family stay with us. I’m so sorry about the bread incident, this is the first time that has happened so thank you for pointing it out. We’ll make sure that won’t happen again. Will also make every effort keep the noise level at a minimum during daytime hours while building another cabin to accommodate more campers 😁
