This is a very private and relaxing place to stay if you want to spend a couple of days in Volcano. The sweet little cabin in a lovely jungle garden setting is just a few minutes' drive from the volcano park as well as the tiny town of Volcano. This place is NOT for those who like resorts--and that's what... More

After researching options, we were lucky to book at Crater Rim Cabin. The owner Jim was very responsive to our emails. The booking was efficient and smooth. We were welcomed by Barry who showed us how everything worked. We loved the cabin. It has many personal touches (an electric blanket, guide books, DVDs of the volcanos, a box of chocolate... More

My wife and I stayed here while visiting the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We had a great time, and the cabin was an excellent choice. Barry was very friendly. The cabin was very clean. It was only a few minutes from the park, and they provided plenty of brochures and books to help plan our stay. He provided food such... More

We stayed here 2 nights. The cabin is an old restored cabin built in the 1940's, I believe. It is beautiful, very quiet, nice yard. Jim and Barry thought of everything. Breakfast was eggs, fruit, juice, toast, jelly, cereal, oatmeal, left in the refrigerator to fix when we wanted. Because of the humidity in that area we were asked to... More

The Crater Rim Cabin is a real oasis on the Big Island. It is so close to Volcano National Park (less than 5 minutes), yet it feels remote and private. The cabin has a cozy ambiance that invites you to step inside and stay for a while. My husband and I slept in the bedroom while our 11 year old... More

The owners were so accommodating as to make us feel welcome and at home. The cabin is exquisite & craftsman style, and It could not have been cleaner...really. The location is spectacular and vegetation around the cabin exotic. A 10 minute ride to the National Park Service visitors center.

Quiet and clean. Refrigerator was stocked up as advertised. Good coffee. Lots of little details like trail guides and warming blankets. Clean and convenient to the park. It was nice to be able to spread out. We enjoyed our stay at Crater Rim Cabin.

We spent 3 nights at the crater rim cabin and wished we had booked for longer. If you want a peaceful property with great facilities then this is the place for you. Jim and Barry were perfect hosts and went out of their way to help in any way. The cabin is very close to the volcano and an ideal... More

I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at this cabin. It was secluded and felt very private but was still very close to the National Park. It was very clean, and we felt right at home. The owners were just a phone call away to answer any questions. We hope to return to the Big Island and... More

“I wish we could have taken Crater Rim Cabin and Barry with us everywhere we stayed in Hawaii.” Cozy, beautiful and thoughtfully decorated, well stocked kitchen for breakfast, and very convenient to Volcano National Park and the village of Volcano.
