Very nice property. Cozy and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We didn't think we would like this property as much as we did. It had everything we needed to be comfortable.

Great base camp for our Big Island adventures!

  • 5 of 5

The Big Island was our first stop on a multi-island vacation, traveling with another couple. These longtime friends are AirBnB superhosts from the Yosemite area, so their 5-star review is a big compliment to Cathy and Dale!

The Tree Fern was a wonderful home base for us. The house was in a quiet neighborhood (with tropical birds, bugs and rain as apropos background "music") The beds and furnishings were comfortable and clean - the kitchen and bathrooms well stocked.

The lanai was a wonderful place to begin our day with coffee and fruits from the many local farmer's markets. Of course, the blender came in handy as we experimented with fresh fruit smoothies and some more "spirited" concoctions!

The woodstove in the living room really added to the comfort and ambiance as the night temperatures were a bit cool. Coming from Northern California, we were not at all missing the 100+ degree summer temperatures!

The "off the beaten path" location was perfect for us. It was a pleasant 20 minute walk through the neighborhood, to the village of Volcano. Great recommendation on Thai Thai Bistro! And as we had a rental car, it was easy for us to hop in and drive to Hilo, explore the vastness of Volcanoes National Park, drive out close to the lava flows (then quite an adventure with headlamps on mountain bikes at night), and swimming in the hot ponds at Ahalanui Park. We spent a full day traveling to Black Sands Beach, "destination malasada" at the Punalu'u Bake Shop, and snorkeling, then eating (Umekes Fishmarket for poke) on the west side (Kona).

Thank you for making your home available. It was everything we wanted...needed....or could have hoped for!

Lovely home, well maintained except...

  • 4 of 5

I would have given this a 5 star rating except for one thing, the bed and the bedding. I stayed in the master bedroom and the sheets were very old and the bed felt very old too. And the bathroom in the master was a bit small but manageable. But other than that, this place was awesome. The owners really did a great job on the place and it is a place they should be proud of. The ferns and lawn are gorgeous. The house is immaculately kept. The kitchen is stocked just the right way. There is no clutter in the house. No wonder why there is a sign saying "this is my happy place". You could just sit outside and enjoy a good book and relax the whole day. But the closeness of the volcano lures you away. I would recommend this place and would stay again.

Charming cottage close to volcano

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was cozier and even prettier than it appeared in the pictures. It was very well stocked with supplies. We loved its proximity to Volcano Nationsl Park and the song of the coqui put us to sleep every night we were there. The owners were always prompt to respond to any questions I asked prior to our arrival. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us.

So convenient to the park!

  • 5 of 5

Best place to use as a base when visiting the park! Well appointed house, everything is labeled well to help quickly guide you to where things are. We loved listening to the frogs at night. House is clean and a great size, just perfect for our stay. Comfortable beds and pillows as well! Appreciated the condiments in the fridge! Owners are very responsive and accommodating. We would stay here again for sure, great value and great location!!

Rocking chairs and lovely scenery

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Tree Fern Escape. Very close to the park and driveable to Hilo for a day trip. The rocking chairs on the lanai were a bonus as were the three bedrooms, full-stocked kitchen and soft rainforest sounds outside our windows at night. We've stayed at eight VRBOs in Hawaii over the last four years and this one is by far the best. We will be back!
