We selected this place because it was close to Volcanoes Natl Park and Hilo. It was just about two miles from the park and about a mile from the very small town of Volcano. So for us, the location was just right. This place is very unique in a beautiful jungle-like setting. It is a private property with a main... More

We thought we were staying at a place close to the volcano, but it was a long way from the crater, the national park, and the little village. The place is quiet and rather secluded. The room was nice, but the bed was a jump off the floor for me. My stomach got upset one day and I wondered if... More

My only complaint was that it was difficult to get up the stairs to get to the unit we stayed in. The property has great potential yet lacked something for my personality. The rooms are set up like hotel rooms and not like a B&B. It was confusing to us if the place was a hotel with two rooms or... More

The rooms are beautifully appointed and feel luxurious. This is especially apprecaited after a hot and/or rainy day of hiking around the volcanic. The gas fireplace is delightful as is the hot tub; especially after a cooler wet day. The hosts are gracious and purposefully unobtrusive to provide privacy to guests. Breakfast is stocked in the rooms (cereals, yogurt, banana... More

Just left the Craters Edge after 2 nights exploring Volcanoes National Park. It was the perfect base, only 10 mins from the park and from Volcano village where there are a number of places to eat including Thai Thai restaurant which was so good we went both nights. The Craters Edge is just 2 rooms, very private and quiet with... More

We booked a night here through a travel agent and wished we had spent more time! It is a two room property that is adjacent to a private residence, kinda a bed and breakfast type. it is nestled in a rainforest setting with floor to ceiling windows. Very calm, serene and private. In the room, we were greeted with fresh... More

We stayed here as a base to explore Big Island as part of a Hawaii trip. The words B&B don't really do this place justice, it is absolutely stunning and the room would complete with any 5* hotel. We stayed in the Haiku room for four nights and were sad to leave! Two of the walls are floor to ceiling... More

We chose this for our honeymoon spot on the Big Island and were not disappointed. Nestled into the jungle near the volcano is this lovely property with well-appointed rooms amidst the native plants, very romantic and private (we were only guests there). There is a nice hottub just a short walk from our room, just note the times/rules. It is... More

I was very pleased with our stay with here. The room was very clean and cozy, well equipped with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub and beautiful views of the rainforest. I wouldn't consider this a true bed and breakfast as there is no prepared breakfast but the room is well stocked with fresh fruit, bread, juices and snacks. My only... More

It's the little touches and attention to detail that really make a place stand out. J&J are lovely. The oft-mentioned banana bread was great, and there was also various fruit, snacks, crisps, noodles, coffee, teas, little snack cheeses, oatmeal, and cereals. The jacuzzi bath was a good place to relax after walking all day. We did not try the outside... More
