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

We stayed at Kate's Cottage and loved it. Kathryn is a wealth of knowledge and extremely hospitable, you don't need to do a tour - just talk to Kathryn!! The cottage is clean and very well equipped, everything has been thought of and centrally located, only a 10 minute drive to the National Park. We loved the fact that we... More

We stayed in Kate's Cottage in February 2014 and just loved it. It was so well equipped with everything you could possibly need and so cozy! Of course it was very close to Volcano National Park. Kathryn was an amazing host. She was so knowledgeable and very nice. We could not have asked for a better place to stay to... More

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
