What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with Hawaii 40 years ago and always wanted our own little piece of paradise. Always traveling in Hawaii, we discovered things and features that characterized "Living in Paradise" and included them in the house so all of our guests would leave with the Spirit of Aloha in their hearts.

Aloha Sweet Hale is the "big sister" to Hale Sweet Hale, also located n Volcano Village. It is where your image of Hawaii comes alive with its lush tropical surroundings. Staying at Aloha Sweet Hale or Hale Sweet Hale captures paradise that is distinctively the best and unforgettable in Volcano Village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely loved this house! It was very clean, had a well stocked kitchen, and a wonderful jacuzzi on the deck. It is located in a secluded area on a large property. The location was perfect for visiting Volcanoes National Park. The house was spacious and decorated nicely. We will stay here again on future trips to The Big Island. Thank you so much for a great stay! It is a perfect location to visit Volcanoes National Park. The house was very clean and well stocked with dishes and supplies to cook for ourselves. The jacuzzi was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable. Thank you for supplying a hairdryer! We will stay here again when we come back to the Big Island. Thank you so much!

Five stars isn't enough!

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we were expecting and more. It's perfectly set up for relaxing and hanging out, and an ideal base for exploring the national park and the Hilo area. Lots of small touches like providing coffee, and plenty of comfy seating inside and out make the experience that much more special. Highly recommended! I'd suggest noting in the directions that it's a mile and a half or so off the main road. We thought it was near the main road so pulled into few wrong houses before finding it.

Peaceful and quite

Had a wonderful stay at the hale. It’s quaint and decorated nicely. It was clean and had everything you need. It’s close to the center of town and about 10 minutes or less to the National Park. Will stay again! Aloha

Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This rental is as advertised and more. Meticulously clean, extra nicely appointed. Top notch everything. The furnishings are delightfully Hawaiian, the home is well-built and the property has beautiful landscaping full of tropical plants. Cannot think of anything that could be improved. Wish we would have stayed the whole week in this cottage! Exceptionally comfortable and homey. The neighborhood is secluded and quiet. Highly recommend this vacation rental. Thank you for making it available!

Quiet Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Loved the interior! The kitchen had all the essentials one needs and more - including a blender for pina coladas. We were here on a cold and wet January, and using the wood burning stove was essential. Beds were comfy, and quilts kept us warm at night. We liked that the hot tub was covered by the lanai so we could still go out in the rain. Beautiful landscaping.

Negatives - not handicap accessible. Washer and dryer are noisy; don’t run a load before you go to sleep! Front gate needs some attention to keep closed from the wild pigs.

Owner's Response: Aloha, We strive to provide our guests with the amenities for a comfortable stay at Aloha Sweet Hale. Being able to use the hot tub comfortably in spite of the rain is a great feature. The pictures of the house clearly show it is not handicap accessible. Sorry for any inconvenience. As long as our guests keep the front gate closed with the latch during their stay, the occasional pigs wandering down the road is not a problem. The gate latches all the time so it keeps the gate closed and pigs out.

Aloha Sweet Hale is located in the heart of Volcano Village. Volcano Village offers magnificent sights of giant hapu'u ferns, towering ohia trees, and an abundant of kahiili ginger like no other place. The Volcanoes National Park is just a stone's throw away. You can visit the park as many times as you'd like because Aloha Sweet Hale is so conveniently located.
