A house has been built on the world’s most active volcano.
Aptly named the Phoenix House, a quirky property now listed on Airbnb, has been built on ash at the base of Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii.
Homes do not get much more dramatic than the Phoenix House created by ArtisTree on the world’s most active volcano just four miles from a 100-foot lava waterfall.
The tiny 450-square foot home listed online for about $130 a night. It uses solar power, rainwater and regenerative power to run.
(Smiling Forest/Airbnb)Situated at the base of Mauna Loa volcano on the 1990 Kalapana lava flow, it is a short four-mile bike ride to the 100-foot waterfall of lava flowing into the ocean at one ton a minute.
The new house to be added to all extreme adventurers’ bucket lists has been camouflaged with Shou Sugi Ban siding and recycled rusted corrugated metal to represent the hot lava.
The Phoenix House was designed by Will Beilharz, who has received awards from Hospitality Design, the International Interior Design Association and American Institute of Architecture.
