Aloha! E komo mai. Nou ka hale. Welcome to our newest Big Island home, Fern Cottage. Located across from Volcano Village, and just minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, we invite you to make our fully permitted house your home away from home during your next visit.

Like our other highly reviewed property (VRBO #403855), we have attempted to make Fern Cottage a perfect retreat for friends, couples, and small groups or families that wish to experience the peaceful Volcano lifestyle at its best. We also offer a wonderful retreat for Kama'aina looking to get away. Comfortably nestled in the lush hapu'u fern and ohi'a rainforest, you will find our location offers relaxing comfort and privacy all the while keeping you close to the variety nearby attractions the Big Island has to offer.

Our house is a cozy but spacious 900 sq ft 2 bed/1 bath house that sleeps 2-5 people comfortably. The high vaulted pine ceiling and wood floors naturally juxtapose with the green views of lush vegetation visible from all the numerous large windows throughout the house. A spacious covered half wrap-around deck greets you as you exit the house, and provides an excellent location to take in the views of the surrounding forest on our half acre property.

Both bedrooms have high-quality comfortable queen-size beds and a queen-size sleeper sofa is available to provide a third bed to accomodate your party's needs. The master bedroom has its own entry door to the covered porch. The main living/sleeping area is only accessible by stairs; therefore, we are unfortunately not accessible for visitors with disabilities that prevent the climbing of steps. For families looking to stay with us, we prefer there be at least one adult per child, if possible.

As with our other property, we strive to provide a warm and inviting stress-free yet affordable alternative to the big resorts. We hope you like what you see here and choose Hale Hubner Fern Cottage for you next visit to the Big Island. Mahalo!

We stayed at Matt’s cottage for two nights. We loved the private setting. Place was clean and instructions were easy to follow. Bathroom looked like it was remodeled recently. Beds were very comfortable. Lava was not flowing at the time of our visit which was disappointing but otherwise the trip was wonderful.

We were in Hawaii for 14 days and visited 4 islands. This house was our absolute favorite of any place we stayed! It’s so charming and peaceful. The setting is beautiful, the house immaculate, and the owners provide anything you could possibly need. 10/10! We loved it!!!

Beautiful property. Very well maintained and clean. It has a fabulous wrap around porch. I would definitely recommend this lace. It’s just 4 miles from Volcano Village!

We had a very relaxing stay while exploring Volcano National Park and the surrounding area. The house feels spatious and private. The kitchen has everything you need. The plentiful umbrellas were a nice and much appreciated touch as it rained during our stay. Note that the heat can take a bit to kick in but it didn't detract from our stay. We would definitely stay again!

Cute , comfortable house nestled in the ferns and trees. We enjoyed our stay at this property. It was hard to get out of the house by the 10 am check out, though. Next time we would stay another night to have more time to relax. We would do a staycation there again!

We came to see the volcanos, sadly they weren't erupting while we were here.... the property was great :-) Just remember it's going to rain here a lot! The location is excellent if you aren't planing to spend a lot of time in Kona. Volcano village has a few good places to eat, and very close by

The location was about ten minutes to the front gate of Volcano National Park. So, this was perfect. The house was clean and had a great porch that wrapped around the house with rocking chairs and tables for morning coffee. Close to a pizza place, tai food and a small store. We would stay again for sure.

This was a delightful and cozy house in Volcano. The property owner was very helpful and communicative ahead of the stay, and I felt that I had all the information I needed for check-in and throughout the duration of the stay. The house itself is so cute and had everything my family of 3 needed. The pictures don't do justice to how cute the space is. weather was particularly rainy, so we enjoyed the board games and DVDs when we needed a break from the rain. I appreciated the washer/dryer that was available to guests, as we had very wet hiking gear that we were able to dry before heading back to the trails. Most importantly, the house was very clean. The sheets/blankets/towels were all clean and of good quality. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for meals in the house. Really easy stay and we will absolutely stay again. I've already recommended to a friend! Thanks for sharing your house with my family.

This cottage is settled in a tropical forest. Very quiet. Close to Hawaii Volcano National Park. Everything worked as expected, well organized instructions with local interest. Menus can be updated. Driveway is narrow but private Matt and Tara were easy to communicate with, when needed. .

Great communication with owner. Breakfast and dinner prepared in our the full kitchen and enjoyed on balcony nestled in rain forest atmosphere. Laundry facilities at rear of rental were a nice perk. Would rent here again.

Property was as advertised and was an enjoyable place to stay. We enjoyed sitting on the rocking chairs on the outside covered patio to relax and look at the private and lush yard. Owner quickly responded to my questions on a couple items -- for example, front door lock was not working, but the side door worked fine. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking.

We stayed at Hale Huber for 2 nights in August. It was, in a word, perfect. Everything we wondered how to do was in the host binder and our little questions were promptly answered by Matt. We'd definitely stay again.

Wonderful cabin in the rain forest surrounded by ferns. We stayed a week as our home base to explore Volcano National Park, the Hilo area, the Puna area, and Kau district. The cabin had everything we needed for the week from being able to make a few meals to throwing in a load of laundry. All the beds were very comfortable after a full day exploring. We had a few minor questions and Matt was very prompt getting back to us. We really enjoyed having some board games to play at night to the sound of a few croqui frogs.

Bring food from Hilo or Kona to stock fridge and kitchen as there are no markets nearby and not much choice in dining or takeout.

Very secluded rainforest setting. Great access to Volcanoes National Park; worth seeing Kilauea both day and night.

My wife and I spent a few nights at the place in Volcano and we had a blast. The temperature was a little cold in the evening but there are several heating systems including heated mattresses which helped a lot. The kitchen was great, there was a ton of cookware and supplies, so we enjoyed making a few breakfasts, dinners, and morning coffee’s during the time we had. The secluded home, the lush surrounding nature, the large porch, and the big windows made the house really unique and cozy. Would love to stay again if we every make it back to the area

What a great location for spending time at Volcano National Park and surrounding area! Our host was easy to get a hold of, had lots of information on his property and shared his wonderful homey cottage. It was very private and comfortable. Wonderful!

We’ve stayed in dozen’s of houses around the world and Mat’s house was the most organized and best supplied we’d ever seen. It had everything. We had a hiccup the first night in that the gas had been turned off so we could turn on the stove (and it is cold!) but Mat figured out the problem the next morning. This is house perfect for a chill holiday. However, we wouldn’t recommend it for anyone working remotely. This is because the internet is about 500 kbps so video calls or streaming is not realistic. Normally, we would have deferred to a hotspot off our cellphone for wifi but the coverage is weak at the house at so it’s not any better than the wifi. We ended up having to reschedule most meetings or go to the park where the cellphone coverage is better.

We enjoyed staying at this cozy cottage very much. It had everything we needed, but we especially enjoyed the front porch rockers and the comfortable beds. With such close proximity to VNP, we were able to get up at 4:45am and be close to the action. What a beautiful and clean place.! The owners have instructions on everything, including how to get there, and it was very helpful. Thank you!

The property is lovely and very secluded. We highly recommend staying here as it’s very close to the front gate of volcano national park. The house has everything you need to cook food and enjoy a much needed chilly night in Hawaii.

This is a cute and humble little house in a beautiful jungle setting, and priced right for what you get. There is a little bit of "off grid" going on here but that posed no issues or inconveniences. The owner is organized, hasn't overpriced it, and the house was clean and has everything you need for a perfect stay near the volcano. We were a little concerned about staying in Hawaii in the Summer with no air/conditioning but the climate is more like summer in the mountains than Summer in the jungle. We used the gas-fired stove at night and did not need A/C in the day. Of course the National Park is only a few minutes away and Hilo, even though a 4o minute drive away, made for a great day-trip of eating, shopping and visiting waterfalls.. Really a great house in a great location. We really loved it. Thanks.

We really enjoyed this house situated right in the middle of the jungle. The house is very close to all Volcano attractions. The house has everything you need inside for a great vacation. We had a bit of troubles with the dishwasher but I believe the owners will fix it. We’ll return to the house next time. We reccomend it!

We had such a wonderful stay! The owner has thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible! My husband and I have such stressful jobs, and right away we were able to relax and decompress. Excellent beds, beautiful surroundings, the coqui frogs and rain gently falling at night just made our stay so nice. We’ve never slept better! The weather was absolutely perfect! Our kids (2 and 4) loved the toys and games and everything at the cottage as well. We wish we would have booked a longer stay our time went too fast! Time flies when you’re having fun! It wa so great to get up early and enjoy the Volcano National Park before most of the visitors arrived. We hope to return again!

We wished we had stayed longer. It was wonderful to be in the middle of of the rain forest and everything about the property was welcoming!
