IMPORTANT NOTE: As of 3-July-2018, Hwy 130 has been reopened and Kalapana area businesses, including vacation rentals, are authorized to resume operations. The ongoing eruption has stabilized to the point that this area is in no immediate danger. However, guests who chose to stay here may experience some volcanic effects, including vog and Pele's hair. Vog is 'volcanic smog'- like the haze of many big cities but produced by the volcano instead of by cars and industry. Vog presence depends on wind conditions. When it is present here it's considered 'nuisance level' to healthy adults but should be avoided by small children, the elderly, and people with respiratory problems. Pele's hair is glass-like filaments of volcanic rock that can settle on the ground and can lodge skin if stepped on, so footwear should always be worn outside– even on the lanai – and removed before entering the house to avoid tracking in or damaging the floor. Guests who book in this area do so with the understanding that these conditions may be present and that refunds will not be offered because of them. Guests should also be aware that the situation could change at any time. If the authorities feel there is any threat of danger you may have to cut your stay short, in which case any unused nights would be refunded.
You will be delighted as you enter this lush custom, 4 bedroom, 3 bath vacation home which was professionally designed & stylized with the taste of Hawaii.
