Chalet Kilauea is part of a larger collection of properties that have been through lots of changes over the years. The Deluxe Bungalow is two-story; a wooden spiral staircase leads to the bedroom with its dreamy view and is the most private. The grounds are lush with a large koi pond. Low ceilings in the main house make rooms feel smaller, but helps keep them warmer on cold nights (which happens at this altitude). Some rooms have LED fireplace “artwork” which feels a bit out of place—just for mood, really. Some have faux-rock walls that make the rooms feel cave-y. Rooms are 275–500 sq. ft. Room décor varies a lot.
They also have other properties off-site. Volcano Hale has five small, simple rooms with TVs, free WiFi and shared remodeled baths, shared kitchen and living area. The five-room Lokahi Lodge has larger rooms (most were updated, so ask for one) with baths, microwave, fridge, hot tub, and free WiFi. All renters may enjoy facilities at the Chalet, like coffee and tea in the lounge. These two off-site properties earn them a Solid Gold Value.
