Are you ready for a rare opportunity to live and sleep in a living, environmental sculpture? Here is a genuine treehouse, built 20-ft. up, integrated into 3 living ohia trees and hidden away on four quiet acres of pristine, native Hawaiian rain forest!
This world-class treehouse has huge windows and decks all around for spectacular 360-degree nature viewing. Commune with birds and other tree creatures on their level. If you want to be outdoors, a unique skywalk and deck stretches out into a forest canopy of giant tree ferns.
In the evening, climb a spiral staircase with artful railings made of branches of the actual support trees to the huge loft bedroom - with it's own private, covered deck. Sleep even higher up on a queen-sized, raised bed, washed in moonlight under star-studded skies. And if you're lucky, you might even get to see the red glow of the active pu'u o'o crater in the east. There's also a cozy full-size, floor-level bed tucked underneath the raised bed for extra people.
This two-story, multi-level treehouse has all the comforts of home, including electricity, plumbing, hot-shower, full kitchen, TV/DVD and stereo. A wood-burning fireplace at table level in the living room provides comforting warmth and romantic ambiance.
This is the perfect upscale-rustic place to stay if you're the creative, fun-loving and/or adventurous type. The owner sensitively hand-built the treehouse in the most non-invasive, environmentally friendly manner possible. No trees were sacrificed in the process and all the windows, doors, sinks, toilet and shower were recycled and reconditioned. It's non-HomeDepot and a wonderful example of green building and living.
The treehouse is located close to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Volcano Village artist colony.
"As a volcano enthusiast living in the area for 20 years, I've been able to follow the life of the active pu-u o'o vent from it's first fountaining to present day. I came so many times from Oahu to see the volcano, i decided to live here. I was lucky enough to realize it's power and have succumbed to it's attraction over the years, experiencing many of its phases up close. I continue to trek to wherever the lava is flowing and chase the thrill. To have been a witness of the life of a volcanic vent is a special part of my life. As a "kid from Jersey", I could never have guessed I'd one day have such a close relationship with a volcano. The tree-ferns and the forest became important for my new enthusiasm of treehouse building and living. This treehouse is number two of three I've built, and after years of enjoyable living, I decided to share it with other connoisseurs of adventurous accommodations. "
