VERY COMFORTABLE & CONVENIENT TO HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK
"We appreciated Becky sharing her home with us! It was truly a "home away from home". We were able to do so much at HVNP because we were only 4 miles away. We did all the Day Hikes that the NP recommends and some extras. We enjoyed the Kilauea Iki Trail the most, including the Lava Tube. The most challenging was the Hilina Pali Trail to Ka'aha. It was easy to see the glowing caldera in the Kilauea Crater at night with such a short trip back to "home".
The kitchen is large and easy to use, so much storage area. We enjoyed the grill and having a washer & dryer convenient to use. The rooms are all separate enough to accommodate other couples or two or more families (four separate bedrooms). Everything worked out very well! We'd stay here again and recommend it to others!"

"My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It exceeded our expectations hugely. Only about 40 mins from Hilo and a short 5-10min drive to the volcano national park. Very easy to find with the directions given by the owner Dennis. This cottage had everything we needed plus more.
Dennis was great with communications prior to our stay and was happy to help with any questions.
I would recommend this to everyone!
Thank you so much Dennis!"

"The east side of the Big Island is alternately stark and volcanic or wet, musty, and full of foliage -- in short, otherworldly. This lovely retreat, located minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and ensconced by lush fern forest, fits right in.
As mentioned before, the house is not visible until you leave your car. Once you arrive, however, you will find all the trappings of home -- towels and beach supplies, a gas grill, games and books galore, kitchen supplies, extra linens of all kinds, television and WiFi, and a unique, private bathhouse that is yours to enjoy.
The location could not be more perfect for exploring the park (you will be able to get in early or late at night for optimal viewing). The home was obviously built with care and attention and feels very homey. It will get wet in Volcano, so take advantage of the provided umbrella!
Be aware that (like most of this part of the island) this property is on catchment water. The hosts thoughtfully have a separate filtering system for your drinking and cooking needs as well as a water cooler. This was not an issue for our family at all."

"Four of us stayed at Volcano Cottage for three nights. Wish we could have stayed longer. The house provided a wonderful place to stay during our visit to the Big Island. It is in a VERY quiet neighborhood within 2 miles of the entrance to Volcanoes National Park. Our first night there, we saw the smoke and glow of Kilauea from the cottage's front porch! How cool is that? With two geologists among us, it was a GREAT start to our stay in Volcano. The house is clean and kitchen fully equipped with anything you might need to prepare meals. Two full baths are great. Plenty of linens, including beach towels. Electric grill on the porch for cook-outs. Internet access if you need it, and a large tv in the living room - not that you'll have time to watch anything. Too much to be doing outside. Caught site of the endangered Nenes one early morning on the golf course nearby. Each of our mornings started with a fantastic home-cooked breakfast at the Country Goose Bed & Breakfast. It is a few miles' drive to the Country Goose from the cottage, but well worth it. Joan and her grandson Shannon provided family-style breakfasts that were delicious - fresh fruit, waffles, coffee, eggs and sausage, pancakes, strawberries and fresh whipped cream, We walked away stuffed and happy. Hosts were gracious and fun to get to know, along with other vacationers sharing breakfast with us. A great location for exploring the park - be sure to include the short Kipukapuaulu Trail walk and drive up Mauna Loa - both accessible within a short drive from the cottage. Definitely would go back and stay here again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
