The landscape of The Big Island is insane. By the time we got to our Lava Rock House, it changed from the busy city roads and deep blue ocean into a landscape covered in ancient lava ash. Sudden green fields, scenic winding roads stretching for miles along the perfectly still Pacific and pink sky were soon replaced by a black desert.
A couple of hours later, while driving on Volcano Road at 3,500 feet above sea level, ears popping, we reached the edge of the foggy Volcano National Park, with signs warning about cracks in the road. What a drive! But our place was even better, it was like a Hobbit house in the middle of nowhere.
The wonderful Lava Rock House
Welcome to the Adventurous Lava Rock Hale! We found this amazing round house on Airbnb (click the link to get your free credit on us) and simply fell in love. We couldn’t wait to meet the host of this Lava Rock House and spend a couple of nights in this gorgeous and unique property.
The land there was beautifully looked after and we enjoyed the driveway every time we were heading out or coming back to our temporary home.
Diane & Eric were wonderful hosts and made the Lava Rock house a true tropical home. It was a project very close to their hearts. Diane told us how they built this piece of art during weekends and it took them 6 years to complete this perfectly round household complete with the solar panel outdoor shower just behind the house. We loved the outdoor showers in Hawaii!
To my delight, there was also a massive avocado tree in the garden, where the fruits were falling down to the ground like apples. They were delicious! We had a blast in this little tropical paradise while exploring the incredible land of The Big Island. Thank you Eric & Diane!
