Hale Iki: an unassumingly lovely Hawaiian vacation rental

Mark and Lucretia Worster have only been renting out their Hale Iki tiny house for a few weeks now, but they got some great advance publicity with an appearance on Tiny House Hunters. It’s easy to see why HGTV picked their house for the show: not only is Hale Iki located in a fern-filled Hawaiian rainforest just a few miles from an active volcano, it also boasts relaxed but indisputably luxurious tropical styling, a huge lanai to complement its 240 square feet of interior area, and conveniences and comforts like a chiminea fireplace and a gas grill. Despite being completely off-grid, Hale Iki also has a big refrigerator (solar) and a flush toilet (water catchment).



The kitchen includes a full-size gas oven and a sink, albeit not a whole lot of counter space.


The fridge is conveniently located just across the bathroom door.


The bathroom itself is quite small, holding just a shower stall and the aforementioned toilet, but it’s nicely finished in grey tile.


The bed at the other end of the house is a comfortable queen size surrounded by windows that let in the morning light and look out on a jungle of ferns and ohia trees.


And staying here costs less than you’d think – at least for now. Mark and Lucretia are currently offering an introductory rate of just $115 per night, and they accept single-night and last-minute bookings too. You can make a reservation directly or on Airbnb or VRBO.
