  • peaceful stay in the Forest


    We had a wonderful, peaceful stay in a beautiful area near the Volcano. So close to the volcano and Puna as well as Hilo. All the amenities needed and the hosts, Elaine and Carter were very helpful. Would stay again!

  • A perfect place to stay in volcano village


    We enjoyed our stay so much. It is a lovely and cozy cottage with everything you need during your stay. It's definitely one of our top picks for this type of accommodation. Elaine and Carter are very friendly and have so much information on the local area, they had prepared everything prior to your arrival and made our stay so enjoyable.
