First let me conclude: Kathryn is the nicest host you can get. At first we only needed one nights accomodation with a very short notice. Volcano Places have a two night minimum, but understanding our situation, travelling with a family, she took us in anyway. The very same night we came to the lovely bungalow our hotel in Kona, where... More

We stayed in Kate's cottage for two nights while visiting the Volcano National Park in Hawaii and its surroundings. The cottage is a cozy oasis surrounded by lush greenery. It is beautiful inside and out, with a nice kitchen and nicely stocked pantry. The chocolate covered macadamia nuts were a lovely welcome which was completely unexpected and highly appreciated.

We stayed in Volcano at the Volcano Bungalow for our first trip to Volcano National Park and our first trip to the Big Island. Kathryn has a true spirit of Aloha that is so welcoming and she provided lots of information in advance so we didn't have to spend a lot of time learning the area before we could relax... More

One of kind and fun to learn from the rangers about the history from the volcanoes and it gets kind of chilly and around 700pm you get to see it glow the red orange color and take pictures buy souvenirs inside the store

We stayed in Nohea for two nights and loved the quiet rain forest setting and beautifully appointed cottage. We were so thankful for all of the information that Kathryn provided in advance, but really appreciated the wealth of information about suggested hikes at check-in. She also happily told us of our good timing (Kilauea lava lake was visible from Jaggar... More

My husband and I recently stayed here in Kates cottage (the smaller option). It was more than perfect in size with a sitting area, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen was stocked with cereals, oatmeal and basics to get you through your stay. There is a stove and small refrigerator as well. The entire place was clean. Kate did... More

We stayed in Kahi Malu. The cottage itself and its setting of ohia rain forest is beautiful beyond my wildest dreams. Impossibly glossy camellia bushes in full bloom and bright red anthuriums surround the cottage, alongside giant ferns that curl up to the sky and add a primordial beauty everywhere you look. Beyond, in the near distance, the cottage is... More

We were supposed to stay in the smaller Kate's Cottage, which I'm sure was also lovely, but since the larger Kahi Malu was open they had us stay there. Simply gorgeous. Beautiful handcrafted detailing. Quiet and isolated. Best innkeepers ever -- provided DVDs and CDs; basic food including cereals, tea, coffee and chocolates in the fully equipped kitchen; gas fireplace... More

We were very lucky to be able to find vacancy at the Kaili Malu only a few days before we arrived on the Big Island. Kate's rentals are all beautiful, Clean, comfortable, and blissfully relaxing. It was so very nice to wake up in the morning with all the smells and sounds of nature around you. The location was perfect... More
