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.

Unexpectedly needed a place to stay during a stressful situation and Volcano Places was the calm haven I needed. Hosts extremely friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome. I will be staying here again.

Stayed in Nohea as well as Kate's volcano cottage during our stay due to a last minute booking. Lots of praise for both of these quiet, beautiful and well-stocked cottages. First, Nohea is well set back from the one lane road, and is very quiet and peaceful. The

Aloha Jonathan, Mahalo (Thanks) for your strongly positive review! Just a small correction: you and your wife actually stayed in Laukapu Forest Cottage, which is a sort of mini-Nohea (which retired from vacation-rental-cottage service a couple of years ago), as well as in Kate's Volcano Cottage. I enjoyed meeting you both and hope that you can return for another stay with us, in future! Mahalo hou (Thanks again)! Kathryn

Our reservation at 6 pm was the perfect time to soak in the transition from day to night of the view of the currently active Halemaumau Crater while enjoying a well prepared meal. The poke was good not great, and mani mahi fine

Kate's is a nicely run cottage, well stocked larder, plenty of hot water, and a king bed. None of this scrimpy queen stuff like you find at less than amicable Maui B&Bs. Kate is a thorough hostess, endless with information and desire to please. Just down a couple lanes from the

I dont understand why this question is directed to Trip Advisor. You should contact volcano places for up to date info on rates and availability. That said, it is a great location, next to the national park. The cottages are in a beautiful rain forest setting and nicely equipped.
