We absolutely loved our stay at Volcano Country Cottages! The detached cottages are located in a beautiful setting and we felt a real sense of tranquility. The terraced area provided a perfect place to enjoy sitting, listening to the sounds of the rainforest. The cottage was utterly spotless, very well equipped and the breakfast provided was very tasty and an... More

Wonderful stay, close to the park (5 minutes to visitor centre). Garret and Sandy were very helpful and gave priceless advice about everything from hikes, to restaurants. The gardens surrounding the cottages were beautiful and the hot tub was a lovely addition to a full day hiking through the National Park. Breakfast each morning was great, fresh fruit, home made...

We had a really great stay at Volcano Country Cottages. Garret and Sandy are wonderful hosts and the place is beautiful and very well maintained in a very lush and quiet environment. It's a very short ride (less than 10 min) to the Volcano Park. We spent 2 nights in a cottage that was perfectly clean, very comfortable and well-equipped.... More

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

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
