To start, the reviews are true. This place is simply the quaintest place I have ever stayed in my entire life. And I have traveled a lot. We stayed here in early February 2015. The Good: The cottage is stocked with fresh pastries every day, tea, milk, yogurt, fruit, etc, etc. More food than you could possibly eat. It sits... More

We have rented homes all over the world, and this cottage was just about the nicest place we have ever rented. This delightful cottage was super clean, very comfortable, and very private. The bed was heavenly, and the shower had wonderful water pressure. The location is perfect for exploring the park and nearby surroundings to include Hilo. There was more... More

My wife and I have stayed in the Danielli in Venice, the Imperial Palace in Tokyo and the George V in Paris, but Bill's place was a nicer place to stay. Let's start with the real, honest to god, rain forest out back - big enough to get lost in. Wonderfully groomed. Little teapots and sculptures scattered about. The hot... More

Spent 3 nights of our 2 week vacation in Hawaii (at the end of December 2014) at Teapot and it was by far our favorite lodging. About 2 or 3 weeks before our arrival, we received a package from them with lots of great information and suggestions of things to do in the area, which definitely added to our excitement... More

Bill and Antoinette have thought of everything! This cottage, which was built in 1912, is exclusively yours. It is stocked with all of the little things that are usually missing at other accommodations. The condition of the grounds and the cottage are impeccable. Bill is a master cabinetmaker and it shows. Here you are completely secluded in your own piece... More

My wife and I stayed there for 5 nights after staying up north at Wianuhea. We chose this place deliberately because we wanted someplace quiet and more private as a way to end our stay, as well as a place that would be close to the park/make it easy to explore the southern part of the island. We couldn't have... More

My husband and I spent 5 awesome nights at the Teapot cottage and loved it. We really appreciated the owner (Bill) coming by after we arrived to go over helpful information about places to eat in the area and things to do. He also let us know about a program at Volcanoes NP that wasn't listed on their activity board... More

This was one of my favorite places I've stayed in my life. Some reviewers have said things like, "Pictures don't do this place justice", or "My review doesn't do this place justice". I whole-heartedly agree with these statements. So I will just try to list as many details so you can determine if these qualities would fit with your preferences.... More

We spent 2 nights at the Cottage! in early December. A ton of reviews accurately describe the beauty, tasty food and completeness of the Cottage but we can go one step further. Bill and Antoinette, the owners, had a humongous, beautifully decorated live spruce Christmas tree in the living room. What a treat! It gave us Tree Envy. The Cottage... More

Pictures do not do this wonderful place justice!!!! You really have to be here to notice the wonderful details Bill and Antoinette (our hosts) have paid attention to. The cottage does not stop amazing you! As many mentioned in their reviews, we received a comprehensive welcome package before our arrival, along with a pack of delicious mango tea. The directions...
