My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this property. It is gorgeous, located in a beautiful piece of rainforest that is well cared for by the owners. The location is perfect for exploring Volcanoes National Park. It is 5 minutes from the park entrance and 10 minutes from the Jagger museum. This last part is great because the view... More

We chose this location on Booking.com for its proximity to the Volcanoes National Park about (5) minutes away from the park entry. This is one very nice place located in a tropical forest atmosphere. Sandy greeted us and showed us our cottage. The unit was very nice and clean. Garrett then offered to show us their tropical garden which is... More

Aloha and mahalo for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you found the cottage clean and nice. The dehumidifier helps it stay that way because as you said we live in a tropical climate. We do ask that you run the dehudifier while you are gone so the noise does not bother you. In the summer... More

My wife and I were halfway through our two-week 40th wedding anniversary Hawaiian vacation. We had wandered about the Kona side of the big island, and frankly, we were weary of the prospect of another week of trying to figure out what to see and where to go. Then we met Garrett, the owner of Volcano Cottages B&B when we... More

I highly recommend this for a quiet but adventurous getaway. The hosts know the entire area very well and are very anxious to help you with whatever you may need. The room was very clean and it is pure quiet at night for a perfect night sleep.

This is an older but very well maintained property. Super clean. Nice towels, comfy beds. Friendly owners. Great location in town, close to the national park. And unlike many places in this part of the island, it didn't have that musty/moldy smell. We would come back.
