This was the best place we stayed at on the big island. Clean, friendly, and laid back. The setting is just great, especially the hot tub. Think hawaiian forest jungle, stary nite, sitting in a hot tub after a hard evenings walk on a'a lava. This location is great, especially if you are interested in seeing the glowing lava at night, without having to drive all the way back to kona or hilo.

I didn't mind not having a 'sit down' breakfast- as we were not expecting this. (i'm not really into that anyways-i'd rather get up at my own time, or be out hiking)

only wish we could have stayed longer....

My husband and I stayed at the Artist House with his parents since there are 2 bedrooms, a living room/dining room, full kitchen, and very nicely redone bathroom. Sandy and Garret were both very helpful about the area and friendly to talk to about other parts of the island too. It was a bit rainy while there, but the natural surroundings , Hilo side and Volcano National Park were beautiful. I highly suggest VCC for your stay. It is a home away from home, esp. the Artist House. It is fully equipped with all utensils for cooking breakfast, making coffee, etc.. The fireplace at night is a nice way to hangout too in the living room. We look forward to returning here in the future. Mahalo.

Artist cottage was very nice and was also impressed with the other newer cottages. You will not be dissappointed. Very private and quite. Loved the beautful well kept yards and clean rooms. Thanks for opting to put dehumidifiers in your rooms. It made for much more comfortable evenings. Also a hugh thanks for suggesting the "Big Island Revealed" tour book.

First of all, the place was imaculate! Absoultly no mildew smell like you have at some other B&B's. The surroundings were lovely, and the hosts were super friendly and helpful! We would DEFINATELY stay there again.

In short, I'd definitely stay at this location in a future visit.

The cottage was located very close to the entrance of the Volcano National Park, which made planning our day hikes a lot easier.

The owners were very friendly and offered lots of suggestions for Volcano activities. The fruits and breads supplied for each morning's breakfast provided a nice start to the day.

The cottage was very clean and spacious. The full kitchen made it easy to cook our own food that we purchased at Costco's in Kona. Prices at the local Volcano store were quite expensive ($6.00 for a bag of Oreo's).

We only stayed 2 days in Volcano, but I think 3 days may have been better. If you plan on hiking to the lava flows, you need to start around 2pm. After a 45 minute drive, the 2 mile hike through the lava fields is very slow. Make sure you wear good shoes, have a lot of water, and feel comfortable walking on extremely uneven ground with lots of sharp edges. The walk back during night time is even slower. If you don't feel a need to see the Lava up close and personal, you can wait until the evening to see the lava from the distant location.

We are very grateful that TripAdvisor helped us locate this great Bed & Breakfast value.
