Home Description

** Have a special price right now** The Tiny Jungle House on The Big Island is perfectly located to watch the landscape change before your very eyes at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Located 3 miles from The Tiny Jungle House this is the home of Kilauea volcano, one of the most active volcanoes on earth. It is important to me to create very affordable accommodations with the experience of a lifetime. I could charge more but why? I know I do not like to be gouged when I travel, so enjoy my gift.

Upon arrival, you will arrive in front of a privately gated home with a lock box combination with the key inside. You will travel down a long private drive of black cinder fusing into red cinder that gradually leads you to your red cinder pathway through the jungle to your personal paradise. Upon entering you will notice large windows and doors allow for natural sunlight. Complementing the ocean blue siding exterior siding to the Tahitian wallpaper in the bathroom, floor to ceiling horizontal glass plates open up the bathroom making you feel the open space and breeze on your face. This is true off the grid living from the bird frog songs at night to the catchment of water for your shower water as well as solar panels harvested from the Hawaiian sun.

Please note this is off the grid there is a cooler for your food and drinks There is no refrigerator. Here you'll find 150 miles of hiking trails through volcanic craters, scalded deserts and rain forests as well as a museum, petroglyphs, a walk-in lava tube and two active volcanoes: Maunaloa, which last erupted in 1984 and Kilauea which has been erupting since January 3rd, 1983. The extraordinary natural diversity of the park was recognized in 1980 when it was named a World Biosphere site by UNESCO and in 1987 when the park was again honored as a World Heritage site.

Kilauea is sometimes called "the world's only drive-in volcano." This prolific volcano currently produces (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) cubic yards of lava per day, enough to resurface a 20-mile-long, two-lane road daily. As of January (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) acres of new land have been created on Hawaii Island. The current eruption may last another 100 years or stop tomorrow. Pele, the volcano goddess who lives here, is very unpredictable. But the chance to watch Kilauea's blistering lava flows meet the sea (click here for Kalapana viewing update) is just one of the reasons to visit. Here are other essential Park attractions:

Kilauea Visitor Center
Open daily: 7:45 am to 5 pm
Begin your visit at the Kilauea Visitor Center where you can watch an hourly film from 9 am to 4 pm to introduce you to the park. Ranger talks are offered and ranger-guided activities can be scheduled. Pick up maps, learn about the park's hikes and get the latest eruption updates here.

Crater Rim Drive
Crater Rim Drive is the 10.6-mile drive that circles Kilauea Caldera. Driving around this loop will take you to the park's main attractions: the Kilauea overlook, Jaggar Museum, Halemaumau Crater, Devastation Trail, Kilauea Iki Crater Overlook and the Thurston Lava Tube.

Thomas A. Jaggar Museum
Open daily: 8:30 am to 5 pm
Thomas A. Jaggar pioneered the study of volcanology here at Kilauea. Here you can find geologic displays, maps and videos about the study of volcanoes.

Halemaumau Crater
Steam vents plume from this massive crater, known as the home of Pele, the volcano goddess. In 1967, this crater was filled with a lake of lava that eventually drained away. Great respect should be paid at this sacred site.

Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku)
Walk through a 500-year old lava cave formed when an underground channel of molten lava drained from its cooled walls forming a massive, hollow chamber. A tropical rainforest awaits you at the end of the tube.

Puu Oo Vent
Currently Kilauea's lava activity isn't centered in its caldera (the large depression at the top of the volcano) but at the Puu Oo vent in the East Rift Zone. Puu Oo's lava flood underground tubes that empty dramatically into the sea. You can watch this spectacle at the end of Chain of Craters Road or get a closer look from the new Kalapana viewing site outside the park.

Chain of Craters Road
Ranger station open daily: 10:00 am to 9 pm
Veering south of Crater Rim Drive is Chain of Craters Road. This 3,700-foot drive eventually ends where a lava flow has literally overtaken the road.

Volcano House
The Volcano House hotel overlooking Halemaumau Crater has been operating since it was a grass shack in 1846. Even Mark Twain once stayed here on his visit to Hawaii. The hotel has recently undergone renovations and is open under new management.

Be prepared on your visit. Bring food and water since there are no facilities in the park. Dress appropriately with shoes, long pants, and a jacket. Bring binoculars and a flashlight at night. And don't forget your camera.

For your safety, please stay on marked routes, heed all warning signs, and stay out of restricted areas. There is a danger of harmful volcanic gases and unstable land in these areas.
It is about a 15-minute drive to the beautiful Story Book Volcano Village, Volcanoes National Park, Tasty Cuisine Restaurants and lovely Art Gallery. Location Location Location- Located at the halfway point to Volcano and main Town.
**Please note it gets really chilly in the evening/mornings so cozy PJ'S are recommended, I provide warm robes and lots of blankets as well**

Finally, allow plenty of time for your trip.

Cozy Little Treehouse

This cozy little house that is inside a beautiful forest made me feel very at peace; hence, I felt relaxed, rejuvenated and serene. The sounds and smells of nature embraced my soul. I felt very safe and had total privacy like my own home in the jungle life; thus, while I was there I felt alive! It was exactly what I needed to heal my spirit with the wonders of colors and bird, frog and pigs. Within minutes, I had my feet soaked in the green sand beach which there are only three in the world. Later that day within ten minutes I was hiking on a hot living lava volcano at the National Park. I went to the Mauna Kea Observatory to star gaze in the midnight hours. The location is perfect! The Tiny Jungle House was centrally located. I have no complaints, lots of blankets, heater and a wonderful hot shower. I had everything I needed and more. I even had a gift basket and free breakfast! If you are looking for a beautiful location with a cozy home that is budget friendly to your pocketbook, this is it! P.S. I learned a lot about Living Off the Grid and I think it should be mandatory for all to experience as It is a once in a lifetime privilege.

Little Gem

This little house in the jungle is amazing! We felt so secluded and out in the middle of nowhere, yet still very close to a lot of great stuff to do! We can’t wait to come back! Highly recommended!

Tiny Junge HOuse

Cristina Pineda The place is just right. At the end of the road. Wet bath neat, and the attic for a bedroom is very cozy. Art surrounds you inside and you are surrounded by the forest outside. Check in and check out no stress just like the atmosphere that exists at Elizabeth’s tiny jungle house.

Really cool secluded sort of tree house. Great for exploring the volcano and experiencing true silence. Very rural spot so be prepared for what that entails but still pretty close to civilization. I did enjoy sleeping in the roof and the tropical view from the shower. Lots of nice touches inside from an owner who clearly has a passion for nice things. If you arrive at night follow the arrival instructions very carefully, also it’s cold at night as you are deceptively high but there are tons of bedding to make a nest in the roof.

Wonderful Location.

A really fun stay that makes you feel secluded and at peace in the jungle... yet conveniently close to Volcano National Park! We really enjoyed the charming cottage in the jungle - everything was cute and perfect. Host was very communicative and quick to respond. Easy self-check in. Cozy and memorable.

Best Honeymoon ever and a great price too!

The tiny jungle house is so refreshing. It's off the grid but not difficult to get to the store or restaurants. It is super spacious and eco-friendly. The bathroom is super unique and beautiful. Bring warm clothes for nights and Elizabeth has tons of blankets!

No electrical vibrations

Tiny house in the jungle is a perfect description. It is very remote, and off-the-grid yet has solar power and water. Very peaceful to be away from electrical vibrations you don't even realize are there in our regular lives. It is very well furnished and comfortable. The upstairs sleeping loft is up some tight stairs. You will need to be able to climb them. I loved my stay and would go back.
