Dancing Ferns

Guest Rating:

Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

Volcano, HI 96785 United States

Dancing Ferns in Volcano, Hawaii is a fantastic place to stay and visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park just a few minutes drive from our house. Our main house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, large dining area, large living area with SMART TV, Free WiFi, and a large covered lanai (patio).

Please note that there is another rental on this large property - Dancing Bamboo Cottage. The units are fairly close in proximity but have no shared space other than the parking area, so don't be alarmed if you see a vehicle when you arrive. The outdoor spaces are on opposite sides of each other and there is space between, so your privacy is assured. And if you need more room there is a discount for renting both together.

The luxurious living room is perfect for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing with an L-shaped leather sofa, TV, games and books. The kitchen has everything you could need to prepare those scrumptious island meals. The stunning outdoor lanai is one of the highlights of the home, featuring a formal dining area and lounge chairs for relaxing in the shade while enjoying the peace and quiet this area offers.

Our main bedroom features a King sized bed, walk-in closet, and full ensuite bathroom with walk-in tiled shower. There are 2 more exquisite guest bedrooms; one bedroom has 2 twin beds, and the other has a queen. These two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the living area from the main bedroom for privacy and the use os the second full bathroom. The second bathroom has a full sized washer and dryer for your use.

We provide beautiful bedding, extra blankets and there are heaters in each room. It can get quite chilly at 3500' elevation!

What to Pack:
The Island of Hawaii, aka the Big Island, boasts over 4,000 square miles and 10 different climate zones, within which are many micro climate zones! You may think that packing your favorite swimsuit and slippers (flip flops) is enough, but not true if you plan on doing any hiking or sightseeing around the island. The Volcano area can get quite chilly with temperatures dropping down to the low 40s at night, sometimes lower, so do bring your favorite warm pajamas and at least a light jacket. It actually snows often on Mauna Kea, but they close those roads whenever there are blizzard conditions present.

Need more room: Rent our cottage, Dancing Bamboo!
The detached Dancing Bamboo Cottage is stunning! The decor is Hawaiian plantation, with a kitchenette, cozy sitting area, large King bed and a luxurious walk in marble shower, Dish TV, DVD player with a vast selection of movies, wireless internet, coffee pot, microwave, toaster oven and mini-fridge.

    a guest from Demorest, GA recommends this vacation rental

    This vacation was designed to introduce grandchildren to Hawaii. We were very pleased with the accommodations. The house was very clean and well maintained. One suggestion for improvement would be to supply more towels.

    • Manager Responded on 4/28/2022

      Mahalo for your review, Mary! We are truly honored that you chose Dancing Ferns for your grandkids' first visit :-) I have passed on your towel suggestion to management. Usually we leave 2 towels per guest, since there's a washer and dryer available. We hope you will keep us in mind for future visits!! Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew

    Earl L from Englewood, CO recommends this vacation rental

    What a beautiful home to get to spend our vacation. All one level, easy for a 91 year old to maneuver, in and out, and onto the lanai. Fabulous furniture and wall hangings lent to the beauty. The kitchen was well furnished, except they had only 4 coffee mugs which we had to share. Fortunately there were only 5 of us, but the house is set up to rent to more so one would expect there could be more of such a basic thing as coffee mugs. The grounds were gorgeous, we loved the fresh lemons growing and all the flowers and foliage. We enjoyed eating dinner on the lanai, and breakfasts inside while the mornings were a bit cooler. We were near enough to the volcano (7 miles) to go out before 4:00am to hear and see the lava flowing, and yet isolated enough to enjoy our privacy. We enjoyed the birds in the area, and got to see a wild pig cross in front of us on the road toward the house. The master bedroom had a very spacious closet, and the other bedrooms had spacious closets, but they were unusable due to poor or no lighting.

    • Manager Responded on 4/4/2022

      Mahalo nui for your review, Earl. We appreciate you mentioning the mug situation. I have put in a request to management for more mugs at Dancing Ferns. We have a small damage waiver fee at every rental to ensure we can replace anything that gets damaged or broken during a stay. Unfortunately guests are not always forthcoming with that information. Our hard working housekeepers are not able to inventory every item in-between visits (there are only so many hours in a day!!) so we DO request that guests let us know if something needs fixing or replacing. The damage protection fee means there's no additional charge to guests so PLEASE, all future guests, let us know if we need to fix or replace any items that have been damaged during your stay. We hope you'll keep us in mind if you return to the volcano area! Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew

    Denise P from Danville, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Dancing Ferns is a beautiful house in the middle of the rainforest. It is secluded and peaceful. I loved getting up in the early morning to the sounds of birds and watching them come out of the forest onto the lawn. It is quiet and spacious, a great place for a family to get away and enjoy time together.

    • Manager Responded on 3/10/2022

      Mahalo for your review, Denise. We're so glad you had the chance to take some quiet time with your family in this lovely place :-) Come back anytime! Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew

    Craig H from Kenosha, WI recommends this vacation rental

    The stay was great. We had come to see our son who lived less than a mile away from where we stayed. So, to find this secluded home, quiet and off into the hidden Fern Forest was exactly what we we're looking for. If there was anything that we found that was uncomfortable was in the evening when it would get a bit chilly. But they did furnish small electric heaters for each room, and we did use them to warm up our bedroom before bedtime. The rest of the house was cool until morning time and would warm back up quickly. But other than that, we loved this place and would definitely stay here again when we come to visit our son in the near future. Would definitely recommend this place to any family, friends or like yourselves, reading this. Thank you gain, the Wisconsinites

    • Manager Responded on 2/17/2022

      Awwww, your review brought a smile to my face, Craig :-D It does get a bit chilly upcountry - you wouldn't expect it in the tropics, right? But there IS a winter here in spite of what most people think. Though I'm sure it's nothing compared to Wisconsin! LOL We are thrilled that you enjoyed the home and honored that you would recommend it to others. We look forward to hosting you again when you come visit your son!!

    a guest from SAINT PAUL, MN recommends this vacation rental

    Location was perfect for visiting VNP. Large and spacious with an awesome covered lanai. Couldn’t get hot water in the second bathroom shower, but the main one was fine.

    • Manager Responded on 1/12/2022

      Aloha April, we investigated the hot water and the only issue is that the handle has the hot water set at the bottom, rather than the top as is more 'usual'. The hot water works just fine as long as you use it correctly. We've added a photo and directions in the on-site house book and thank you for pointing this out! Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Crew

    Alan K recommends this vacation rental

    This house is big and open with lots of space. The beds are comfy and everything was clean, up-to-date and well-maintained. The property is secluded and private, feels like there is no one else around you. It is a short drive to get to the restaurants and farmers market in Volcano Village, and to the national park to see the volcano.

    • Manager Responded on 10/28/2021

      Mahalo for your review, Alan. We're so glad you enjoyed the location and the Volcano area. Come back anytime!! Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew
