“Nohea Cottage - SENSATIONAL”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is the best B & B I have EVER stayed in. It is quiet, secluded and magical.
We spent 4 nights here in AUG 2012 and we loved every second! The bed is comfy, the kitchen is lovely, gas fire adds to the feel of the place, the outdoor areas are great for afternoon reading.

It has a hot tub and vertical spa - which make relaxing after a day of exploring much easier.
Your host Kathryn has endless information on the area and was so helpful for us "first timers" to the Big Island. Make sure you eat at the Thai restaurant (in the hardware store) it is amazing. The lodge put on a fantastic Birthday dinner for us as well. and the Kiawe Kitchen served the Best pork sandwiches in the world.

It doesn't get much more peacefule than a beautiful handcrafted cottage in the rain forest. Put it next to the volcano and it becomes exotic and wonderful. My wife and I stayed at the Nohea cottage and it was absolutley gorgeous. The detail in this cottage was wonderful. We spent all day the park and enjoyed relaxing nights at the cottage. My only regret is we didn't stay longer. We would for sure come back.

Kate's Volcano Cottage is a beautiful, quaint cottage in Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. This place definitely exceeded our expectations. The cottage has a complete kitchen with all the necessary cooking equipment and coffee, tea, etc included. There is a double bed and a futon, so a family of four would fit comfortably. There's a TV in the room if you have enough energy at the end of the day to watch something. Plenty of information provided on all of the local attractions. Kathryn, the host, was on hand to answer any questions and/or offer tips for the area. She was also very interested in hearing about your daily adventures. Definitely a gem!

We stayed 3 nights at Volcano Places while visiting Volcano National Park. Kathryn is a wonderful hostess. She gave us many suggestions and thought of everything we could have possibly needed during our stay. It was a quiet retreat for us, and we loved every minute we spent at the cottage as well as in the Park.

The bed is very comfortable. Kathryn had three robes ready for my family. The pantry had oatmeals and cereal as well as tea and coffee. The kitchen had every appliance one needs for a home away from home.

The laundry facility was great and easy to use. Kathryn had detergent ready for laundry and kitchen. Parking was great.

The retreat itself is in perfect location and just beautiful setting with native giant fern trees and flowers. My daughter even said that she preferred the cottage over the beach resort we were in on Kohala coast.

We stayed two nights at The Wright Place as part of our honeymoon adventure on the Big Island. I would definitely recommend Kathryn's newest property to anyone who needs privacy of their own little cottage in the middle of the tropical forest. At the same time the house is very close to the town's restaurants and the farmers market is very close as well.

Kathryn is the nicest person on the planet as she will provide you lots of useful information about the area and will equip you with all necessary information. At the same time she will let you enjoy your privacy and will not disturb you at any cost.

The house is very clean and has all amenities one could wish for. In the bedroom you will find many blankets and pillows, the bathroom has eco friendly toiletries and in the kitchen you will find Kona coffee and a fairly big selection of teas. There are also many DVD available in the house, a huge TV and a nice fireplace. The house is surrounded by calming garden full of fern.

There is also big paring spot in front of the house.

Room Tip: Stay at least 2 nights!

We stayed here for 3 nights in March and it was the highlight of our trip to the Big Island. We stayed in Volcano Bungalow, and were very happy with our choice. Kathryn made us feel very welcome, and gave good suggestions for visiting the area. It does get cool at night, but the cottage is warm. Recommended.
On the way, stop at the Green Beach at the south tip of the island. It's really too far to walk from the parking lot over the lava to the beach, so pay someone to take you there (usually someone in the parking lot with a truck). It is worth it.

Nohea at Volcano Places is no doubt where you should stay if visiting Volcano National Park. The cabin is beautiful and the hot tub is perfect after a hike in the park. Kathryn has added so many extras to make this over the top special.
