Would you rather sleep at the base of an active volcano, or wake up to rivers of lava flowing in the distance?

Trick question.

If adventure travel beckons, you need to put this little island destination on your radar. At the base of the Mauna Loa (yes, that Mauna Loa), eco-conscious architects ArtisTrees erected the unassuming Phoenix House cabin for a private hospitality client who runs different accommodations around Hawaii.

The cabin's 450 square feet provides just enough space and amenities include just about everything you'd need for a getaway to a remote location. A well-stocked kitchenette and bathroom with hot water give the comforts of home, but a plush lofted bed and jaw-dropping views of the surrounding lava fields justify why you trekked out here in the first place. Solar power and rainwater collection are used to keep the structure off-grid. You can ride a bicycle out to watch the molten lava pour into the sea.

Expect quiet, dark nights, nature walks and a whole lot of downtime to think, or not.

Book here and decide on the way.
