The property is very well maintained and sparkling clean. All 3 cottages are lovely and very thoughtful and confy built, designed and decorated. Natural materials were used and the cottages are integrated in the forest. You can see the architect worked with the nature and did not just erased it. We had 2 nights in the Guest Cottage (rustical style) and one in the Bamboo Cottage which is bigger and sophisticated. We loved both. You‘ll find all you need in the kitchen and everything is working and is very clean. The outdoor japanese bath and the hot tub are great. We had the chance to meet the owners. Very nice people, very communicative. We had some very nice conversations with Kathleen, who gave us all the needed details for our stay and the visit at the volcano national park. We could not have asked for more. Welcoming. Cozy. Secluded. Sparkling clean. Very natural and eco friendly. We recommend this retreat to anyone who loves / respects nature and enjoy beautiful architecture and stylish accommodations.

Property's Favorite Review
This is a very unique experience with a private cottages in a rain forest. Relaxing and quiet. An awesome retreat from the regular tourist accommodations. Owners and staff very friendly. Excellent breakfast included in your cottage - just place your order the day before. Very good restaurants nearby and near a lot of the must-visit sites on the Big Island. We would highly recommend.

Thank you for your review! It is nice to get away from the regular tourist accommodations and experience something a little different. Having our passion and artistic expression come alive here in this rainforest environment, and sharing our creation with the world, continues to bring us so much joy! We welcome you back anytime!

This place is fantastic and great for young or old couples. Incredible privacy and Hawaiian hospitality were abundant during our stay. The setting makes you feel like you’re lost in a rainforest and we are already talking about coming back. The private Japanese tub was relaxing, beds soft, and rental unit well equipped with amenities. Be sure to follow Peter’s papaya recipe—it’s amazing! Mahalo for a great stay!

I have stayed at various hotels and resorts but this one will standout for so many reasons. The retreat is nested inside the rain-forest. Inside the cabin, you will enjoy all modern luxuries while enjoying the lush green outsides.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
We spent only 2 nights in the Bamboo guest house, but it was the highlight of our 12 day trip to Hawaii. The cottage was spacious enough for our family of 4 (children aged 12 and 9), and was cozy. It was a wonderful change from hotel rooms. The bed was warm and comfy, they provide all the amenities you may need (robes, towels, dishes, a selection is soothing music CDs, and interesting DVDs). As well, they provide a nice basket of breakfast foods, dry granola, coffee, tea, etc. Note, regulations prevent them from providing milk and eggs, but we popped into the general store in Volcano and purchased a dozen eggs and we were all set for a wonderful breakfast each morning. This would be a perfect place for couples or honeymooners looking for a romantic getaway. Ideally situated near the village of Volcano and Volcano National Park. If you plan to visit VNP, you MUST stay here! We definitely plan to return.
