Low key glamping in the jungle

Sanna has put a lot of work into carving a homeplace out of the jungle and it shows. We stayed in a unit next door to the one you see in the listing - brand new to guests. Many little sweet touches had been made for our comfort - new lounge chairs on the lanai, matching towel sets, etc., and as time goes by I'm sure even more will be added. Map the location well when you are considering staying here - you will see that you get all the peace and joy of the jungle environment, and none of the town life. It's fully 30 min to VNP, but also that much closer to Hilo and points downhill. Also be aware of the fact that while you are still "camping" - real camping with pit toilets or outhouses is a number of steps rougher than using this very tidy biolet. It only requires that you care at all about energy efficient waste disposal, and are willing to spend one extra minute in the bathroom per use. The shower is hot and glorious. We spent many peaceful hours just enjoying the wild nature around us. Highly recommend.

This was a wonderful experience and we’d recommend Sanna’s Lava Rock Treehouse to anyone! The treehouse was well equipped with everything we needed and the jungle property is beautiful. Sanna and her husband were helpful in every way, yet we completely had our privacy. Their dog, Rocko, was a delightful bonus as was the symphony of frogsongs at night and birdsongs in the morning. We highly recommend!! ~Mahalo~Arie and Lauren

Lava Rock Treehouse was totally what we needed. Out of the way, cozy and the best sleeping porch ever!! We woke up to the full moon right outside the screen. Sanna has a lot of thoughtful touches on the Treehouse. A delightful time

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!!
