My family of 3 rented the Artist Cottage for 4 nights. The cottage had 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a full kitchen. The living area was huge and it was nice to have the space to spread out. I cooked several small meals in the kitchen which was fully equipped with anything that you would need to prepare a meal.... More

Just a minute from the park entrance of Volcano Park! Thai restaurant with takeout right next door(good food). A big plus was the dehumidifier which made us much more comfortable, no mold/mildew smell. Wifi only in the office.Sandy & Garret are perfect hosts. The Cottages is very clean.

Really loved staying at the Volcano Cottages Bed & Breakfast. Have stayed in a number of B&B's in the 'States and they provide a superb contrast to the "Glass & Chrome" of the big hotels that may have more facilities, but can be short on the atmosphere. Garrett was superb. He was like out personal travel guide for the area.... More

Aloha and mahalo nui for taking the time to write such kind words. We are located in the Village which is rather quaint, thus not a lot of selection for eating or groceries. We are sorry you didn't enjoy the fresh fruit. The Ohelo Berry Cottage does not afford any cooking so the breakfast is limited to what can be... More

What else can I say but it was great. If you’re seeking for a lovely quiet place with a lot of privacy, which is spotlessly clean, you’ll find it here.

Just a minute from the park entrance. Quiet setting, gracious hosts.

We stayed here for 10 nights at the end of February 2015 while visiting our family who were living nearby while doing volcanic research. Our cottage was roomy, immaculately presented and very well equipped, including a heater for the chilly nights at that time of year at 4000 ft height, and all that one needed in the kitchen.
