#5 of 31 B&Bs / Inns in Volcano
We own and manage three vacation-rental cottages in the village of Volcano, adjacent to the entrance of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, just an 8-minute drive from our cottages, on the "Big" island of Hawai'i. Two are studio cottages, each with a private bathroom; one is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage. They are homes-away-from-home, with very well-equipped kitchens, stocked with hot and cold cereals, granolas, regular and decaf coffees, green, black, and herbal teas, and condiments (salt and pepper in grinders, extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, sugar, stevia, and CoffeeMate), comfortably furnished, with books and maps about the Park and this island, WiFi, and cable TV. We, the owners, live on or very near the cottages' properties; guests are greeted after they check in but are given privacy during their stays. Each cottage has its own free parking spot. Guests may use the washer, dryer, and laundry soap in the laundry room in the afternoons and evenings.

Kathryn is an amazing host. We stayed at the LKC cottage which was exceptionally beautiful and had everything a guest would every need plus some more. Kathryn is a very kind and caring host which makes the whole experience very welcoming and memorable.

We stayed in Laukapu Forest Cottage. Kathryn, the owner, is friendly, caring, kind and informative. The house— built by her husband— is lovely. Extremely good value. Nice little touches and great attention to detail.

Each cottage is very well equipped. The owners are not just hosts, but friends after out many visits. They are very helpful with suggested places to visit. But the best part is the peaceful setting in the rain forest - serenity at its finest!

Not only is this place so charming, the management is over the top kind. The place is so cozy and has everything you need, the location is the utmost peaceful and Kathryn and Kenneth are superbly friendly. From the moment of booking I received confirmation and resources to make the stay most enjoyable. The cottage was pristinely cleaned and has cozy touches such as a heated mattress pad for the chillier elevation. I would recommend this to any solo or couple for a relaxing and warm stay.

We recently returned to Volcano and stayed at the Laukapu Forest Cottages. A very well designed and maintained property amidst the beautiful rain forest and of course, close to Volcano National Park. The facility has every amenity one could desire and the ambiance was outstanding. The host/owner, Kathryn, was incredible and saw to every need with kindness and great information about the area. This is an outstanding location with wonderful personnel. I highly recommend Laukapu to anyone wishing to visit Volcano.
