    This was a wonderful spot for exploring Volcano NP. It is beautiful and relaxing, and perfect for a couple. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. Couldn’t have asked for a better stay.

    It was a perfect location for all our activities. Check-in with Elaine & Carl was quick easy. The place had all the necessities we needed for our stay. The unit has some really good windows that can be easily opened or closed. The birds and critter noise at night was something else. We really enjoyed our evenings listing to the sounds. Thanks for hosting us, much appreciated. The vT's

  • 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.
