Volcano cottage description

'Cozy, quiet, peaceful and magical' -- these are some of the words guests have used to describe this unique cottage in the Hawaiian rain forest.

Complimentary Coffee and Tea.

Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, with hiking trails and amazing lava vistas, is just a mile away. At the end of your touring day come home to the always hot outdoor hot tub in the rainforest, and your private lanai, or cozy up to the gas fireplace.

Your hosts, Boy (Ron) and Debra, are nearby for suggestions on your sight-seeing plans or questions on local life. Decorating the cottage are some of Debra's original paintings of around the Big Island. Some of Boy's woodwork items are also on display.

Boy and Debra's Place is nestled in the heart of the beautiful and quaint village of Volcano with excellent restaurants, 2 convenience stores and gas, art studios and a winery.

In Hilo, just 40 minutes away there is shopping, dining, museums and beaches. In the other direction 40 minutes is Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, famous as the nesting place for Honu, Hawaiian sea turtles.

At 4,000 feet of elevation, you will enjoy cool mornings and evenings and clear mountain air that will have you feeling relaxed in no time.

Local yoga classes are available and massage by appointment. Come, enjoy what other guests have enjoyed -- your private island paradise. Aloha! Boy & Debra
