"Wonderful Xmas time spent in that house : everything inside -and outside- is made to feel you like home while on vacation ! On top of that the house is very close to Volcanoes national park (easy to be there early and late in the day), and not too far from Hilo should you need some groceries, or visit the north of Hilo, and if you feel the mood it is also easy to drive to South point !
We hghly recommend this cosy cottage."

"We really enjoyed our stay in this house. Julie was prompt in her responses as we planned our arrival and for any questions I had during the stay. There were all necessary instructions provided. It is well equipped and clean. The beds are comfortable. It is much bigger than in the pictures. It is close enough to the park (short drive). We really enjoyed staying here and would definitely come back.
We went with an infant (and Julie had let us know that the house is not particularly baby proof), and the furniture etc. in the house is not very baby friendly (has sharp edges and corners). So we had to be very cautious when DS was crawling around. One small per peeve was that there was no bath soap in the bathrooms.
We had some soap with us and enjoyed our stay nonetheless. No other issues. Everything else was perfect."

"Boy made us very welcome, which is always appreciated. The little cottage was so cute and cosy with its own little lanai in the rainforest with wonderful birdlife to watch over a coffee. Unfortunately we never had time to make use of the hot tub but it was nice that robes were provided for our use. The location to the National Park was excellent and the caldera is definitely worth a night visit, especially as it is only a short distance away. The drive to the tidepools and thermal pool on the far side of Pahoa for snorkelling is well worth it. The local village store was amazingly well stocked and well worth a visit. We like to support the surrounding businesses if we can. We had a great stay and it remained sunny the whole time. We would thoroughly recommend Boy & Debra's Place and should we ever be lucky enough to come to Hawaii again visiting our son we will definitely chose to stay in this rainforest hideaway again. Lovely!"

"We've stayed at Ferntree Hideaway several times and we love it! My husband and I have concluded that this home is perfect in every way. It is a wonderful mix of a cabin in the rainforest, but has many wonderful touches which take it way beyond "cabin". My favorite spot is the living room corner with the windows. It allows the rainforest to be part of the living space. The tub with its wall of window is also a wonderful place to enjoy being in the rainforest. This home incorporates its surroundings so well, you can really experience the rainforest while staying warm and dry!
While you feel like you are in the middle of the jungle, our favorite Thai restaurant is only a few minutes away and a quick phone call gets an order to go. Eating it back at Ferntree makes it all the more special.
One thing which we always find amazing is how cool it is up here at Volcano. We always end up wearing our jeans and warmest "Hawaii clothes" while we are here. The bedding though always keeps us nice and toasty.
Kristen is an excellent hostess and is always available for advice. It is so easy to rent from her.
We are already looking forward to our next visit to Volcano and Ferntree Hideaway!"
