If you like chain hotels you won't like this one. But if you're a bit adventurous it's worth the trip. The room is small, but you're here to see Volcanoes National Park. Breakfast is in your room (in the fridge, on the counter, and in the hanging baskets.

Gotta remember this is not a typical motel, with office staff, etc. Interesting location, could be described as rustic. Our room was very clean, nicely furnished in an eclectic way way and as reasonable a choice in this area as you'll find. Juice, yogurt, fruit, granola, oatmeal, coffe tea available. WIFI was way better than our place on Waikiki. Would...

We had 1 night stay at this B&B we loved the suite and the view to the rainforest, Dan and Shannon were very friendly. It is important to say that it is a B&B and not a hotel. So read the directions they send you by email once you book with them. It was a good choice for our family...

Pretty rustic place. Rooms in decent but not excellent condition. Mostly clean. Breakfast bar in room but quality lacking. Toaster but no bread. Bananas were past prime and oatmeal was clumpy from age. Yogurt past sale date. No milk so cereal options were of little value. Good sized room just a few minutes from the volcano park. Nice outdoor seating...

My sister and I booked the king poster room for two nights-we're both small and it looked nice. When we arrived there was no manager on site-another guest had to show us where to find our room. The room was eclectic at best, creepy at worst. "Breakfast was 4-1 day old, under plastic wrap tiny muffins (the plastic wrap makes...

This was a nice place for the night we stayed. It is located only a short drive from volcano nat park. It is tucked away in the fern forest. Not to hard to find if your paying attention. Nice little breakfast bar. Nothing fancy but a nice relaxing place to stay.

Best kept secret in Volcano, Hawaii. Great Bed and Breakfast, serene and quiet. Both restful and relaxing after a day in Volcano National Park, minutes away from the park entrance. Lava tube was worth the stop. Owners on premise and provide great hospitality.

We stayed here for a night in room 3. We found the room to be comfortable for the 3 of us. The location was perfect for visiting Volcano National Park (VNP). Although the turn off the freeway can be easily missed, if you find it during the day, you should be able to locate it after dark when returning from...

See my recent review. I wanted to add that the location is beautiful. I would have given it a 2 or 3 rating but for the smell in the room. The place needs much work. The carpet needs ripped up. Had the cost been about half, you would expect some issues. Not worth the 260./night.

The room was really comfortable and very clean. Shannon and Danny made sure that our room was stocked with fresh fruit, yoghurt, granola, orange juice, lilikoi butter, cakes and more each day. The on site lava tube is absolutely amazing! Shannon and Danny were also very helpful with advice about where to go and what to see.
