We are a small bustling Inn nestled in the tropical rain forest just miles to an active lava lake and lava flows. Located on the Big Island of Hawaii, in a small village we cater to travelers from all over the world who come to see the volcano.
The island is filled with places to hike, beaches, exotic flora and fauna, snorkeling, glowing lava, national parks, snow covered mountains, surfing, giant ferns, deserts, underground lava tubes, sea turtles, local Hawaiian culture and so much more.
Come help us tend the rain forest that surrounds us and learn how to keep an inn running in a very unique place.

We live in a jungle, it takes a crew of people to maintain the property. The jungle always tries to grow back, but we weed out foreign invasive plants by hand. Giant Hapu'u ferns form a canopy 15 feet high with flowers and native foliage growing under. Greenhouses grow food year round.
We collect all of the water we use here. Pumping, filtering, treating, purifying, and monitoring the catchment system is vital to keeping our Inn flowing.
We're willing to train if you have the enthusiasm to want to learn. Life on a volcano is hardly normal, but we enjoy it and hope you will too.
