Ever wanted to knock something awesome off your bucket list? Well, staying within easy viewing distance from flowing lava has to be pretty high up there. Enjoy the luxury in this off-grid oasis without feeling the strain of being off-grid. Experience all the energy from the sun, the water from the sky and the lava from the molten earth. All in one spot :).

Our multiple rooms function perfectly for larger groups, check them out as well as our reviews in our other listings.
