This cozy cottage was a great base for my partner and I as we spent 3 days exploring the Volcano National Park and surrounds. The included breakfast was banana bread, fruit and museli - and Kona coffee of course! Ira was a lovely host. We didn't get a chance to eat at the café on the grounds, but definitely check... More

I live on the Kona side of the Big Island and recently took a "stay-cation" with a friend visiting from Canada. This cottage was the perfect place! Beautiful grounds, cozy cabin (with an awesome shower!) and a private hot tub. Very close to HVNP and other Volcano attractions. The staff were very friendly and wanted to ensure we had the... More

The Artist Cottage at Volcano Garden Arts is a very unique setting. The location was great. Five minutes from Volcanos National Park gave us the chance to return to the park each night to see the glow of the crater. On the cottage grounds are Café Ono, serving excellent food, we had a great lunch. Also, the gallery made for... More

My now wife and I arrived here after a long wedding day, long flight and long drive. We were met by Ira and instantly felt like we were at home. Great host and gave us a nice introduction to the cottage and property. The cottage was lovely and cozy. If you have too many bags it could get a bit... More

The tiny cottage, with spacious bathroom addition, had everything we needed-even breakfast supplies. We loved having the garden all to ourselves in the evenings. We enjoyed exploring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and then coming home to soak in the hot tub under the big tree and the stars.

This cottage is owned and operated by gifted Hawaii artist Ira Ono. It is so very special to be able to stay in this amazing rainforest just outside of the park. A host of wonderful attributes include: yummy homemade treats for brekey and fresh grown island fruits, a new outdoor hot tub, a huge playful bathroom, complete kitchen, space heater... More

From the banana loaf waiting for us, to the cosy dressing gowns for the chilly mornings and the elegant flowers filling every vase, this was an ideal place to stay. We had three nights here and used it as a base for exploring the nearby sights around the volcano. Comfortable, if slightly rustic and glad we didn't have any big... More

We loved every minute of our stay at Volcano Artist Cottage. The setting is serene, lush and beautiful. The landscaping is artistic and inspired. It's such a pleasure to wander through the gardens, which are tropical and very art-inspired. Owner (an artist himself) Ira Ono is an expert at making one feel at home. The cottage is cozy and comfy... More

The cottage within Volcano Garden arts is truly enchanting. The cottage is as cute and cozy as can be with a galley kitchen, dining area, queen size bed and oversize bathroom (great shower) and hot tub. My husband and I spent 1 night in early July. Breakfast was provided, homemade banana bread, fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee, granola, everything you need... More

My husband and I spent two nights here over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The cottage itself is quite small (although the bathroom & shower are gorgeous and huge) but the setting is beautiful. The grounds are a work of art themselves with a tree-enclosed "room" and several meditation areas (and a rescued goat!). The works of art for... More
