Kathryn is the best host you may want. She is so gracious, thoughtful and knowledgeable. We stayed at the Kahi Malu. It was clean, spaciousand had everything you would need. It was nestled in the rain forest. We were able to leave the windows open because it would cool down in the evening. The bird songs was amazing to hear... More

Well Kathryn has thought of everything to make this cottage special. Coffee, choc.macadamias cereals,down to first aid products. Enough reading materials and dvd's to stay for weeks. Beautiful back deck looking onto the forest! Can't say enough about what a knowledgeable and thoughtful host she was!

My husband and I stayed in the studio cottage at this property. It is cozy, well-supplied, private and very convenient to Volcanoes Park. It is stocked with lots of fascinating books, especially about Kilauea. Kathryn is gracious and full of information but does not impose or hover like some B&B hosts. Several other units on this property are newer and... More

My family of three stayed in Kahi Malu for four nights. While this cabin was larger than we really needed we really enjoyed it. It was clean and spacious and the kitchen was well-appointed. The woodwork is beautiful and fine craftsmanship was evident throughout. Kathryn supplied a wealth of information about the area. It was a great base for us... More

We are a family of 4 that stayed in Nohea a few days at the end of December 2014. Kathryn the host, was extremely hospitable. The lodging was extremely comfortable, well-built, clean and spacious. The cabin is situated off the main road and we felt like we were in the middle of the rain forest! We woke up to birds... More

This was so much more than staying in a cottage; it was a Volcano experience! Kathryn, the owner, was just wonderful. She gave us so much information about the area and facts about the volcanos of Hawaii. Nohea is such a beautiful structure, handcrafted, a labor of love. The warm woods and detailed construction make this cottage so special and... More

All my dealings with the owner Kathryn were very kind and enjoyable. When we finally met she was full of energy and showed how much she loved the area over the 31 years she has been there. We stayed in the NOHEA cabin which her husband built from Douglas Fir and cedar and is beautiful. It is situated at the... More

We stayed at the "Volcano Bungalow" for the 2014 Merrie Monarch festival. First, email communication with the property manager (Kathryn) was excellent. For the uninitiated, the place may be tricky to find, especially at night, but the directions were precise (allow about 40 minutes from the Hilo airport) and the bungalow is not that far off from the main road,...

My husband and I stayed at Kate's cottage for three nights in August 2014 as part of our honeymoon. We are very glad we chose Kate's from the many B&Bs in this area. Kate lives nearby and when we checked in she was able to give us so much information about the area (including her favourite local beers and she... More
