Guestbook comments from the owner


Mahalo for a wonderful stay! We were very active and enjoyed all of East Hawaii. We hiked Kilauea Iki Trail (highly recommend) and Mauna Ulu trail to Pu'u Huluhulu Cone, drove to the end at Chain of Craters then watched the Lava lake glow from the Jagger Museum. Had a great dinner at the Kilauea Lodge. Today we did a helicopter tour w/Safari, Hilo Farmers Market then down to Pahoa & snorkling @ Kapoho Tide Pools (also recommend) then swim at Ahalanui. Pizza from Mike's NY Pizza in Pahoa. Yummy!

5th Anniversary The Best Getaway Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome place to stay. The property is easily found off of highway 11, and the managers are easy to reach for confirmation and directions. If you want peace and quiet and time alone with your special someone, this is the place for you. Every morning we were greeted by the sight of wild birds eating from the bird feeder and pheasant wandering around the property. A beautiful yard landscaped to perfection. Cool clean air outside, warm and wonderful decor inside. We were just amazed at how beautifully kept everything was. There's also a hot tub and an outdoor grill should the mood for soak and a steak strike you. My husband and I loved it. The fireplace was wonderful, especially since the weather is so cool up there. Also, the appliances look like new and there is cookware provided. The continental breakfast had so much variety. Fruits, English muffins, waffles with guava jelly and butter were all included, along the best coffee ever! This place was wonderfully stocked. We were just a few miles from a romantic dinner at the Volcano House. This place was a couple's dreams come true. It's great for families as well, since there are two bedrooms along with an extra futon. The owners are extremely nice and helpful. They totally made our stay so comfortable, and since it was our anniversary we got a bottle of champagne to celebrate. We were treated like royalty, and couldn’t ask for more. The house is about 30 minutes out of Hilo, where you can go shopping and eat. It's close enough and yet far enough were you get the comforts of stores and the seclusion of the country. It made our 5th anniversary unforgettable. We would definitely recommend this place to a friend or relative and we will definitely return.

A nice quiet cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed meeting Karen and staying at her Hapu'u Fern Cottage. The cottage was neat, clean and well furnished. We did not use the hot tub or the wood stove, but they were there to use. The cottage is located in a rural residential neighborhood and only minutes from Volcano National Park. We enjoyed our stay on the Hilo/Volcano side of the Big Island. We would recommend to friends.

This cottage is in the perfect location for Volcano National Park and the east coast of the big island. We spent a day at the park, had dinner and then an easy return to see the volcano at night. Another day to Hilo and surrounding waterfalls and hot pools. The cottage has many added features - like breakfast and extra soap, shampoo, etc. The Thai food truck was outstanding. The only warning is it can get cold in Volcano Village at night in February - low 50s. We would return in a heartbeat.

Private, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Hapu'u Fern Cottage at the end of February 2015 and absolutely loved the entire experience. Karen was extremely generous, friendly, helpful and working with her was a breeze. The home was very private, clean and the hot tub was really nice after a day hiking around Volcano National Park (which is located about 5mins. away by car). I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway.
