Are there still some adventurous, Huck Finn type sparks alive in you? Then turn up your Jurassic Big Island experience another notch by staying in this unique, hand-made, GENUINE treehouse built 20 ft. up into 5 living, native Hawaiian ohia trees.
Look down onto the reaching fronds of amazing hapu'us (giant tree ferns) from huge windows and lanais all around, providing 360-degree birds-eye views of this secure, private 4 acre paradise. Witness the thrills of nature's interactions while nestled in homey comforts, including full-kitchen and bath, TV/DVD, music and more to modernize your Swiss Family Robinson experience.
Fall asleep while star-viewing from your comfy bed perched high up in the spacious loft. Some nights, even the volcano's red glow is visible.
A real-deal treehouse... located between two active volcanic vents... in Hawaii... you might never want to leave! But Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the charming artist colony of Volcano Village are nearby if you do.
Huck Finn says: For the creative, environmentally sensitive types, not the fussy. This truly 'green' structure was intentionally built in the most non-invasive manner, using high grade building wood and reconditioned windows, doors, and most everything else (including the 'kitchen sink!') And after 6 years of testing by various forces of nature, it's structural integrity has been proven to be sound and solid. And the trees are happy, too.

I don't know how many other vacation rental owners meet and greet their guests but I do, it's fun. I so appreciate meeting the kindred spirits who seek out TreeHouses to stay in. I have enjoyed many great conversations and count most of my past guests as my friends now. I delight in telling my new guests about the gathering of the recycled materials and the building of my TreeHouses ( which took 6 years) as well as all the wonderful places to visit and things to experience and hikes to take around the Volcano area, inside the National Park, in Volcano Village, and in Pahoa area near by and other unique places on the Big Island. TreeHouse enthusiasts are my favorite people and an all around good lot.
We stayed in Treehouse #2 and found it to be everything we imagined it could be. We arrived with four kids and the intention of heading down to see the lava flowing spectacularly into the sea. The kids pretty quickly agreed that they would rather hang out with mom and dad in their treehouse. But we still had time to make the quick trip of a few miles into the national park to see the bright red glow of the active crater from the museum. Skye gave us all the information we needed, including the location of the nearest grocery store (not close, so shop in advance). He is justifiably proud of his creation, which is made entirely of repurposed construction materials and uses the dimensions and setting given by nature to create a unique lodging experience. We came to Volcano after three nights with the crowds in Kona, which was fine and not unexpected at a busy time of year. The treehouse is the opposite: complete tranquility, quiet except for the birds. There is no question we would stay there again and recommend Skye's treehouse to our friends.
This was an outstanding vacation! Skye was an amazing host. The treehouse is such a unique experience. It has all of the amenities of being at home, but you're in a tree!!! It's beyond cool!
The detailed craftsmanship that went into creating such a inviting place are everywhere you look!
There are so many places to go on The Big Island, we never ran out of things to do - we stayed 4 days and ran out of time to do all the things we wanted!
If you are looking for a relaxing, get away from it all kind of vacation - this is it!
I would do it again in a heartbeat! I recommend it highly! Mahalo, Skye! We'll see you again :-)
Thank you again Skye for a wonderful stay on the Big Island. Our family of four--2 adults, 2 teenage boys--were easily accommodated. Literally, every turn we made, we found something, some detail, that we'd not noticed before. All the way up to our departure when I noticed the wooden chair you've fashioned, underneath the treehouse. We were constantly surprised and amazed by your attention to detail. And we too loved "Monjoe, the cat. My son actually cried when we petted him and left him there at the driveway for the last time. It was a wonderful stay--better than we expected--and our expectations were already pretty high based upon your reviews. We loved it. Oh, and I was able to climb the stairs to the bedroom with my bum knee after all! Saw numerous shooting stars! A few right from the bed :).
Mahalo for sharing your beautiful creation with us!
My husband and I recently stayed in Skye's treehouse with our two kids and my mom. My mom and I found and booked it online and decided to keep it a surprise for my husband and the kids. I wish I'd had video of their faces when they saw where we were staying, and I have to say that even I was surprised. It looked amazing when I saw it online, but being there in person completely blew me away! We've traveled quite a bit over the years, and I have to say that it is truly the most incredible place I've ever stayed! It really made us wish there weren't nearby volcanoes to explore so we could have just hung out in the treehouse for our entire stay.
Skye was excellent to deal with in preparing for our trip and met us on arrival for the grand tour. The treehouse has full amenities while still making you feel that you are alone in the middle of the rainforest, gazing out on the tops of the trees. We all loved meeting Skye, hearing about how the treehouse came to be and getting ideas for how to best explore Volcanoes National Park. My kids also loved hanging out with Monjoe, the cat. :)
Not sure what else I can say other than if you're considering staying here, DO IT! Volcanoes National Park is just a few minutes away, and the drive over from Hilo wasn't bad at all. The only problem is that now we all want to stay in treehouses everywhere we travel!
The Volcano tree house, nestled in an Ohia tree forest, just above the canopy of the hapu’u ferns, is a little slice of Heaven. Having heard of the place for years, I finally got the opportunity to stay recently. And Boy! It did not disappoint! It was actually more incredible than i had expected! We spent 2 nights there as a staycation. Once we were settled in, we did not leave the place. It was truly a magical spot that makes me long to live in it full time. With all the expansive windows, one feels absolutely enveloped in nature. The attention to detail the owner did, makes it even more amazing- that the tree upstairs in the bedroom has branches that go right thru the wall to the outside is incredible! Anytime i find someone looking for a place to stay volcano, I tell them of this place. I cannot wait to go back!
We absolutely loved our experience at the treehouse. The treehouse reflects the exquisite skill and artistry of Skye, who owns and personally built the treehouse. One of the best parts of the experience was getting to visit with Skye about his experience in building treehouses. Both of the treehouses currently available as vacation rentals are equally tasteful, comfortable and authentic. I doubt we will ever have a better treehouse experience. Our stay there met and exceeded our expectations. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Mahalo Skye!
The Treehouse is near the Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park, where you can view the glowing crater, it's about 7 minutes away. Also Kalapana, where the lava has been entering the ocean is a 40 minute drive. Hilo is where all the water sports are also the movies and museums and is about 30 minutes away. Another fun event is exploring old lava tubes, with a guide if you like.
