Phoenix Volcano House in Hawaii

Jun 15, 2017

Category: Living

Remember occasionally playing “the floor is lava” as a kid? Thanks to the Phoenix Volcano House, you can relive that childhood game on your next vacation.

Located on Hawaii’s big island, this small 450 square foot vacation rental puts you right in the center of the action. Set at the base of Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano, renters of this tiny home can just as easily head into the forest as they can walk a short 4 miles to an active lava waterfall. The flow drops off the land directly into the ocean at a rate of nearly 1 ton per minute. More than just being in a unique location, this one of a kind cabin is both incredibly comfortable and designed to operate completely off-the-grid. Powered by solar energy, built from up-cycled materials, and sources its water from fallen rain – it adheres to just about all of the most common sustainable housing principals. As if we needed another excuse to go to Hawaii.
