  • This is a very opulent, gorgeous property reminiscent of a tree house.

    "The surrounding tropical forest and second floor accommodations create a comfortable tree house effect. There was lots of room for the five of us, with plenty of elbow room inside and on the beautiful second floor deck at the front of the house. We really liked the gas fire pit; we did not use the hot tub downstairs or the corner stove heating unit in the living room; there is no apparent central heating. We were there in late June, with hot days and cool nights. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, cookware, and a large fridge. The property was very clean, and had lots of cozy seating and comfortable beds.The property manager lives quietly on the lower level, and was very welcoming. We enjoyed Hale Mauna Loa's close proximity to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Kīlauea is incredible at nightfall! Hilo was an easy 30-mile drive away. We also made the trip to the south coast and the Sea Arch. Be aware that the closest large grocery store (FoodLand Kea'au) is twenty miles away, so stock some provisions on your way to Hale Mauna Loa. We enthusiastically recommend this property to anyone."

  • Excellent location

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Volcano Cottage. It was very comfortable for the 4 of us. We wanted to spend much of our time at Volcano National Park and it was so convenient to stay here. A bonus was the amazing breakfasts at Joan's County Goose B&B! Thanks Joan for getting our day started off great."

  • The pond....it's all about the pond

    "Ahhh, the pond...I could go on about the lovely downstairs unit and it's open kitchen and dining area. Or I could discuss how convenient the location is for just about anywhere on this side of the island, but somehow my mind wanders back to the thermal pond that is all yours. When the tide pools or champagne pond is crowded there is your own private pond awaiting. Yes, it's close to the volcano, lava flows and the vibe of Pahoa; the Makuu Farmers Market, open mic nite at the local Kava/Kombucha Bar or the drive down the Red Road and then there is the pond where you can slide in and float in bliss, undisturbed at sunrise, sunset or under the full moon just steps from the door of the house. There is Hilo Town, and botanical gardens, waterfalls, lava viewing boat tours from Issac Hale Park and there is the pond that rises and falls with the tide and is always calling..... Needless to say we enjoyed our stay and I if I could figure out how to add an additional half star I would. The withholding of the other half star is the bed in the second room is in need of a serious replacement or at the very least a foam topper and pillow top cover. But after that moonlight soak in the pond, sleeping without those additions wasn't a problem! The location is excellent, clean and recently re-modeled, communication was clear and responses prompt from the owners, Have already recommended it to friends who frequent the area. Don't miss the Thai restaurant in Pahoa!"
