Location

Volcano, Hawaii, United States

Surrounded by lush rainforest and tucked away on a quiet side street of Volcano Village our location is peaceful and private. The village center, just minutes away, has several restaurants, a post office, and a couple of very small general stores.

The nearby area is home to many artist communities, cultural organizations, and scientific hubs. Volcanoes National Park offers a huge variety of beautiful hikes as well the incredible opportunity to view active lava flows. This fantastic natural park has been designated as both an International Biosphere Reserve and is Hawaii's only World Heritage Site. The Volcano Art Center features a gallery with ever-changing local artist exhibitions, a variety of classes and workshops such as lei making and hula, forest tours, and special events. Also a short drive away is Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, a great swimming spot famous for its basking sea turtles. There are plenty of farmers markets in the area where you can find a wide range of locally grown produce, flowers, tasty food, and handmade art and gifts. Hilo, a charming historic city with lots of interesting spots to explore, is also nearby.

Hello! I first arrived in Volcano 40 years ago and fell in love with it. My partner Rick and I built Fiddlehead House ourselves - we now live in Canada and return to Volcano as often as we can. I'm happy that people can enjoy our house and experience the beautiful Big Island when we aren't there ourselves.
