    "we arrived at the Cottage after a 24-hour or so journey from Europe and immediately realized: yes, it was worth it! Directions are easy to follow, the location and tranquility of the place are exquisite, stairs to the porch invite to step into the house, which is equipped with everything one might think of wanting during a vacation and even some things more. TV, Wi-Fi, gas fireplace - everything works fine, which means you feel at home really fast. The Cottage is perfectly located for excursions to near by Volcanoes National Park, we also enjoyed driving up to the top of Mauna Loa Rd. Finding the Volcano Winery at the end of Piimauna Rd. (open for Hawaiian wine tasting!) was another pleasant surprise. Conclusion: if ever we have a chance to come back to the Big Island we'll also come back to Volcano Cottage. Absolutely 5-Star - Thank you!"

  • Great Home Away from Home!

    "We were a party of four couples and the place was perfectly suited for the number in our party. The kitchen was great for cooking all of our meals and there was enough space for us to either hang out all together or branch off into different areas. We used the BBQ, crockpot and most of the pots and pans during our stay. Everything worked great, although the knives were dull and could use some sharpening. We did switch bedrooms so more than one couple could enjoy the spacious studio upstairs, which was easy enough due to the convenient washer and dryer on the property. The tidepools were a short walk away and the snorkeling was perfect. We do recommended walking out to the farthest tidepools for the best coral and chance of spotting turtles and schools of fish. There are plenty of snorkels and masks (10 sets?), so there isn't a need to purchase or rent any, which is very convenient. As we were concerned about the advancing lava flow into Pahoa (now stalled), I kept in touch via text with the owner and he gave me immediate updates on the situation. All of the main stores and businesses in Pahoa are open now that the lava flow has stalled. We had a wonderful vacation and everyone was very happy with our rental home!"

  • Great Place & Great Host

    "The property is in a nice residential neighborhood of 1+ acre lots. Lush jungle. The unit is detached from the main house and separated by a large carport. Nothing not to like. Clean and modern. Heath was very friendly and accommodating, without intruding on our privacy. At my urging, he gave me a tour of his garden, which includes limes bigger than softballs (seriously)!"

  • Home away from home

    "Aloha! I want to thank our hosts of the Naupaka Guest House for the wonderful accommodations that are offered as part of my stay. Each room was charming and cozy, making my experience very intimate and inviting. I truly appreciated the small details from travel containers for food to extra shampoo and conditioner (came in very handy, thank you!!). The property is pristine and beautifully kept, which only makes your guests want to help keep it that way. And it goes without saying that the hospitality provided is absolutely stellar, with your generous availability and accessibility. I am recommending you to anyone and everyone that is interested in heading out that way. Oh....and I will be back :D Thank you for helping make my visit to Hawai'i that more special. Mahalo!"
