No detail overlooked! A serene custom-designed studio retreat in the treetops of Volcano, Hawaii. Tree cottage includes a beautiful kitchen, spacious bathroom with indoor/outdoor shower, top-level lanai for viewing the unique local flora, and covered outdoor lounge area for enjoying morning coffee or evening wine with a loved one, rain or shine. Interior decor is mid-century tropical with floor-to-ceiling windows, pristine hardwood floors, and a hanging rattan chair for daydreaming.

The space

Relax in the tranquility of the ohi'a and hapu'u trees native to this unique part of the world, while enjoying your favorite creature comforts.

The tree cottage is 300 sq. feet, custom-designed and adorned by the host/owner providing a more personal experience for the guests. Amenities such as an easy to access entrance, beautiful decor, a well-appointed kitchen, consistent hot water, electricity, fluffy towels, ceiling fan and comfy bed make a luxurious take on the treehouse experience we all dream of experiencing.

Enjoy the ground-floor covered outdoor lounge area in rain or shine while looking onto the garden area while relaxing on acacia wood furniture, with a little lantern and string lights for an easy-going romantic setting.

Coffee, tea, and oatmeal are also provided for light breakfast. Basics cooking necessities such as utensils, olive oil cooking spray, salt and pepper are supplied.

For local climate info and tips for preparing see the bottom of this description.

The living area has glass french doors that welcome you in to the cottage. Once inside you'll be inspired by the beautiful pitched pine ceiling, large windows and 8 feet tall sliding glass doors providing a perfect vantage into the trees. At this height you can see the colorful birds flitting from tree to tree and the clouds rolling in from the coast. The living area is separated from the kitchen and bathroom, so each room is its own.

The kitchen has hardwood flooring, custom cabinetry and quartz counter tops. It comes complete with a four-burner gas stove, small fridge, full-sized sink, coffee maker, and toaster oven.

The bathroom has a lovely tiled shower with pebble floor and a rain shower head for an incredible experience. The big windows, flower-shaped vessel sink, quartz counter tops, tiled floor, and fluffy bath linens provided give the bathroom the feeling of a beautiful, relaxing spa.

The outdoor garden is spotted with new, young plants but still evokes a feeling of privacy, peace, tranquility, and a change of pace from everyday life.

House water is potable and chemical-free. Piped in from the outdoor rain catchment system, the water is purified with a UV system and filtered.

The tree cottage was built by a local contractor, engaging local businesses for the materials. Shannon's hands-on management (even cleaning between guests!) and pride in ownership for the property results in a tree cottage guests can feel comfortable staying in.

Climate info and tips for preparing:

Even though you are in Hawaii, being on the side of the volcano at a higher elevation means it gets cooler at night and the climate is changeable. Typically, the temps stay pleasant during the day. Mornings tend to be drier and sunnier, evenings tend to bring overcast and higher chance of rain.

Consider bringing warm comfortable clothes to lounge in or outside the tree cottage. Fleece is always a good cozy option here.

It is wise to bring water-resistant outer wear for your excursions, just in case of unexpected rain showers.

Guest access

You'll have access to the entire home, garden and driveway.

Interaction with guests

Host is available at all times for any questions or matters that need immediate attention.

Other things to note

**For the security and safety of the guests, personal possessions on the premises, and protection of the property, the outside of the cottage has surveillance monitoring.**

We booked Shannon's place last minute for a night in Volcano. The place is immaculate and beautiful. It is on the second floor above a small open patio. The kitchen was fully equipped but small. It is quite private, though you can see the house across the street and we heard the neighbors briefly. All in all a great experience, convenient for exploring the national park.

This was the perfect place to stay. It being very new it was also very clean. I was worried that we would have to book a place that was old and smelled old based on what I was finding for the cost. But shannons place was perfect. Every detail was met. We ate dinner in the village for two nights and then explored Hilo. This was the perfect meeting spot from our original place located in north Kona to then the volcano village, it is with in a drive to Hilo, and black sands beach and also green sands beach. Again his was a great place to stay!

I loved this little treehouse! We spent some time relaxing here even tho we wanted to see everything in volcano. So peaceful, amazing surroundings and all you could need for a comfortable stay. Would recommend it to all who are looking to stay in volcano or even the Hilo side of the island. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Aloha! My name is Shannon. I'm an entrepreneur and soon-to-be grad student who loves to travel, live in new places and meet new people. I custom-designed the tree cottage, had it built to spec, and manage the property. Over the last several years my travels, experience living abroad and pure enjoyment of helping others have led me to become an Airbnb host.
