My husband somehow found this place when were planning a trip to the Big Island. We absolutely loved it and it was exactly what we needed. It was located in a private and relaxing location and felt completely secure. The property is so gorgeous and perfectly maintained. It consists of 4 individual bungalows that are paradise along with a hot tub, various sitting areas and a dining area. The bungalows consist of a king bed and bathroom and it so inviting and updated. We would open the windows at night while sleeping and it was so relaxing with the sounds and darkness. Once awake in the mornings, they would bring us freshly made bread, fruit and juice to start, and this wasn't even breakfast! Then, when they served us breakfast, we ate in the dining area situated in the middle. They served more fruit and juice along with some varieties of quiches and such. Everything was delicious and freshly prepared. The owners, Robert and Scott, were so attentive and helpful when we needed direction for activities on the island. Everything about our stay was amazing and the property is amazing and worth every penny. This would be a great place for a honeymoon or quiet, relaxing vacation.

If you love nature. yet want to step way, way up from roughing it in the woods, here is the ultimate answer. At the Volcano Mountain Retreat, you are truly in the midst of nature with the sights and sounds of wild Hawaii surrounding you. The thick, lush forest is everywhere but in this one acre or so of a garden-oasis comprised of 4 cozy and private bungalows, each with its own lanai furnished with chairs and table for breakfast coffee or just sipping an adult beverage as the sun falls below the surrounding forest. There is no highway noise, day or night, nor anything other than the sounds of nature. Sleeping is aided by a fabulous king-sized bed with a top of the line mattress designed with a comfortable sleep in mind. Each room has a functional LED fireplace/heater (we never needed the heating element) with realistic pictures of hot coals and flame serving as a nightlight if you wish. Each bungalow is provided with bathrobes and slippers so that upon arising you can greet Scott or Robert (your fantastic hosts) on the porch when they bring the perfectly brewed (to your personal liking) Kona Coffee and a fresh, warm from the oven loaf of breakfast bread. A different variety each morning of your stay. But that is only the pre-breakfast. Shortly after enjoying the banana or cinnamon bread comes the real breakfast served just across the lawn at the community, open air, tiki. A breakfast consisting of a quiche or souffle dish (again, different each morning), a large serving of fresh Hawaiian fruit, yogurt and more of that great Kona Coffee. Robert and Scott are great hosts, never intrusive but always ready to help with the days sightseeing plans. They are rightfully proud of what they built in this 7 acres of what we mainlanders call a jungle. They tell of importing a special kind of solid core bamboo from Viet Nam for the construction and clearing the first paths into what would become an oasis in the jungle with machetes and of the many, many truckloads of topsoil to create the beautiful gardens surrounding the bamboo buildings, There is free Wi-Fi and Direct Tv service including HBO and Showtime. My wife and I have found B&Bs preferrable over hotels, being friendlier and more personal. Although we have found many great ones, this one stands out as being the best of the best. 5 Stars are not enough. Thank you, Robert and Scott, for a wonderful stay and experience. Doug & Nancy

We had a fantastic stay at the VMR in August. Robert and Scott do everything to make you feel "at home" and happy. 5 Star-Hotel service! The owners have created a super unique place which is truly amazing. We will definitely be back. Mahalo from Germany for the fantastic experience!

My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights at the end of our Hawaii trip at VMR and they were the best 3 days of the entire two weeks. The retreat is first-class all the way. Our hosts, Robert and Scott, became like family. They were attentive to our needs without being intrusive at all. They created the most beautiful serene environment with amazing landscaping, rooms, and hot tub. The morning coffee delivered to our private lanai followed by a perfect breakfast under the tiki made each day start in a magical way. We treated ourselves to a massage from their partner therapist (Gabe) and it was the best massage ever - made even nicer in the serenity of the environment with a cool tropical breeze blowing over my body and listening to the sounds of nature during the massage. All four rooms (individual bungalows) are identical and beautiful. Each has a private lanai with seating as well as a table and chairs. There are gorgeous lounge chairs on the property and both a "living room" and a "dining room" under two separate tiki areas. Robert and Scott gave great suggestions on things to do and to see, including how to enjoy the awesomeness of the volcano even though the national park is closed. I could keep going on and on... bottom line is that this place and the owners are nothing short of perfection! I hope to go back there again.
