Crater Rim Cabin Information


Crater Rim Cabin is located on the boundary of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in the edge of the ohia-fern forest of Kilauea. The cabin is nestled among ohia and koa trees in botanical-garden-like surroundings. At an elevation of just over 4000 feet we have a cool climate that is spring-like for most of the year. To keep you cozy at night, the cabin is equipped with a gas fireplace and a warming blanket, in case you need it. The back yard is on the boundary of the Park, and it is about 1.5 mile drive to the main Park entrance. There are a great many hiking trails in the Park, or you can see many of its amazing geologic features by car. We are only 22 miles from Punaluu Black Sand Beach Park, where you can often see sea turtles sleeping on the beach. Crater Rim Cabin makes a great base from which to explore the entire southern and eastern portions of the Big Island. (Please note: For the maximum comfort and convenience of our guests, we accept parties up to 2 adults and 2 children, age 12 or under.)

Warm, cozy, clean, comfortable and private... that's how our guests describe Crater Rim Cabin. Living nearby, we are always available to help when our guests need attention. Otherwise, we are discreetly absent to protect their quiet and privacy.
