  • Fabulous Cottage!


    This cottage was a great find for my husband and I. Perfect size with a kitchen. Very close to the Volcano Park (6 miles). We went into the park at 5 AM to see the active volcano. Then went back at 8 AM and were able to tour the park before it got busy. The owners Elaine & Carter recommended the early park trip & even provided flashlights. They also recommended local restaurants, which were very good! Close enough to Hilo and other small towns for touring. Great communication with the owners. We would very highly recommend this place and would stay again if we're ever back in the area.

  • Beautiful Cottage and Awesome Hospitality


    My family and I stayed back in September. The perfect place to stay on the Volcano area of the Island. Only an 8-minute drive. Elaine and Carter are awesome and very hospitable hosts. Elaine checked in with us prior to our arrival and was very communicative. They waited and welcomed us when we arrived. The cottage itself is cozy and has its own garage entrance. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a place to stay in Volcano. Elaine has many years of experience working in the hospitality industry.

    This was a lovely cottage and place to stay while visiting the park. The owners were most helpful especially as we arrived after dark. Owners provided every comfort one could think of to enhance our two day stay right down to providing slippers and lovely Hawaiian music to listen to after a long day in the park. We highly recommenbd stayin there.
