Volcano Rainforest Estate values the needs of all guests with respect and consideration for their individual abilities. We strive to help guests understand the uniqueness of this property.
Our property is exempt from the American Disabilities Act (ADA), because the establishment is located within a facility that contains not more than five rooms for rent or hire and that is occupied by the proprietor of the establishment as their residence. (5 U.S.C. 301; 28 U.S.C. 509, 510; 42 U.S.C. 12186(b). § 36.104 Definitions).
Volcano Rainforest Estate does not offer any handicap accessible accommodations because they are situated within and surrounded by a Hawaiian rainforest with uneven, natural terrain that retains the authentic topography of the volcanic land with the indigenous trees and plants of the native forest.
The facilities on the grounds include gravel-parking areas and are connected by narrow gravel paths that wind through the forested property. Some accommodations have entrance steps. Some guests with mobility issues may find access challenging in this rainforest environment.
We do care about prospective guests needs and request travelers to read the descriptions on our website, volcanoestate.com. Please refer to this information when considering your stay in Volcano, Hawaii. We encourage guests to call to clarify whether this property and amenities we provide could meet their individual needs.
