Why Rick chose Mountain View

For the last 12 years we traveled the world and visited 22 Countries looking for the perfect place to locate a Retreat Center. The Big Island of Hawaii is where we spent our Honeymoon and after all the travels, we decided this was the perfect place.

Guest Testimonials:

Here’s what Nicole wrote:

“We stayed there for four nights. My room was the largest suite with bath and part of the patio. The place is pretty close to everything if you wanna explore volcanoes. But make sure you get yourself a car with high clearance, the road to the house was kinda bumpy and it damages the base if you have a low clearance. Every else was just perfect. The hosts were nice and sweet :) ”

Here’s what Stephanie wrote

“Rick and Katy Joy are amazing hosts who took little moments of time to make our Hawaiian home so comfortable. Everything from the cleanliness of the room, light and delicious breakfasts, to personal inquiries about our ventures outside of the lovely Celestial Sanctum. They made us feel like instant guests of the family. Their home was the perfect location for checking out the southern coast of Hawaii. Kona, Hawaii Volcano Nat'l Park, Pahoa, South Point and Hilo. I hope we see them again!”

Here’s what Sophea wrote

“A secluded and quiet location. Close to Volcano National Park and Hilo. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Katy and Rick are wonderful hosts. Would be coming back again. ”

Here’s what Charlie wrote

“Rick et Katy sont de très bons hôtes, mais surtout des personnes merveilleuses. Ils nous ont fourni de très bons conseils pour visiter l'île et sont très disponibles. Les chambres proposées font partie d'une grande maison située dans un très bel endroit au milieu de la nature. Si vous êtes à la recherche de tranquilité, de relaxation et de dépaysement, cet endroit est parfait pour vous ! ”

Here’s what Debbie wrote

“Great location right beside the volcano national park. Awesome and clean rooms. Rick and Katy was very hospitable

What makes this lodge unique

Volcanoes National Park is minutes away and offers active volcanoes to view and hiking the jungles and view the volcano craters. There is the great Jagger Museum and a viewing spot open 24 hours a day to see one of the active volcanoes.

One of the great things about our location is that we are close to an International Airport (Hilo) which is only 20 miles away. The weather is great! We are in the countryside but the nearest town is only a few miles away. Lots of open space on this beautiful 25 acre property and room to grow our own food in our greenhouse and the bountiful land. You can rent rooms in houses all over and the unique benefit of our Center is that we have an 2000 sq. ft. Gathering Room for Guests along with a swimming pool, sauna, Shiatsu massage chair and lots of fun things to do.

1.2 miles off Highway 11 in the Jungle so it is quiet and peaceful.

There is a fridge/freezer in each room and the guests have access to the kitchen for light meals like sandwiches and heating items up in the toaster oven or microwave. We provide coffee maker and tea.

We supply a healthy breakfast for each guest.

When you arrive ask to see our Guest guidelines and we have a liability release form to sign when you arrive and if you would like a copy ahead of time, let us know.

Great View and Serene

  • 5 of 5

Great, secluded and serene location. Healthy breakfast included and we had the view of the active volcano on our balcony. It is a bit of a challenge to drive on the gravel road, but worth it for the location. Rick and Katy were very accommodating and had helpful tips. We were lucky with the weather during our stay by being blessed with sunny skies and cool nights.

Beautiful hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! So clean, friendly and serene. Also very responsive, responsible hosts. Definitely off the beaten path but was a good location for exploring the east Side of Hawaii and especially Volcano National Park. We stayed here for the first three nights of our honeymoon and enjoyed this stay very much. It was also our very first time using VRBO. There were a lot of extra nice pluses to our stay, including the ionized water, option to use the kitchen, and the host's kindness to meet us after check-in hours although we came in on a late flight. Another thing we liked was meeting some of the other international guests during the casual (but tasty & healthy) breakfast. The road to the place requires you to drive slowly so be sure to allow about 15 minutes of 5-10 mph. 4WD not necessary but in Hawaii there are many rocky roads so take it slow. High accolades for Celestial Sanctum and we would love to stay there again.

Ohne Worte - unglaublich

  • 1 of 5

Wir haben das Domizil wieder verlassen, da in der Ausschreibung des Anwesens nicht vermerkt war, dass es nicht gewünscht ist, den Kühlschrank mit Fleisch und Wurst zu füllen (Kühlschrank im Appartement) und es auch nicht gewünscht ist, in diesem Alkohol zu haben. Wir wussten, dass es dort im Anwesen nicht gewünscht ist, aber wir wussten nicht, dass es im Appartement nicht erlaubt ist. Ebenfalls wurde uns gesagt, dass die Eigentümer das Frühstück für alle Urlauber (Mieter) machen, so dass ein gemeinsames Frühstück möglich ist.

Für uns ist die Selbstversorgung genau die Möglichkeit, Urlaub zu machen, da wir ungern in Hotels mit anderen verbringen.

Wir hatten in dem Appartement keinen Tisch - auch nicht auf der Terrasse, um dort das Frühstück für uns selbst zu bereiten bzw. zu uns zu nehmen.

Außerdem sollten wir einen Vertrag unterschreiben, der den Eigentümer berechtigt, im medizinischen Notfall einen Arzt zu rufen. Diese Art des Vertrages ist uns bei der Anmietung völlig unbekannt und wurde noch von keinem Eigentümer von uns verlangt. Da wir diesen Vertrag nicht unterschreiben wollten, wurden wir darauf hingewiesen, dass wir dann auch nicht bleiben dürfen. So haben wir das Haus wieder verlassen.

Owner's Response: We are very concerned about safety and have rules at our Retreat Center such as no running around the pool or diving in the shallow end. We ask the guests to abide by the rules so that everyone is safe. We also ask written permission to be able to contact medical help if anyone hurts themselves or has a health concern which requires medical attention. This couple did not want to give us permission nor did they want to sign our waiver that asks them to be responsible and safe on the property. For this reason they chose to leave, which was their loss as we have over 50 Five-Star reviews from other Bed & Breakfast guests that have booked with us in the last 4 months.
