We rented the Akala cottage for our family of 6 -- grandparents, parents, children (8 & 3). It is cosy, neat, and immaculate and very reasonably priced. While it is not big or luxurious, there's a full kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, plus loft and lanai. Also has washer/dryer. Owners Bonnie and Alan are helpful, available, and friendly. There are books and toys to borrow, plus plenty of umbrellas (it is in the rainforest after all). Breakfast lanai offers plentiful supply of food, with fresh fruit always available, and opportunity to meet other guests. Convenient headquarters for visits to national park, lava viewing site, and observatory. We were all very pleased.
