We spent NYE here after visiting Volcano National Park and it was such a unique and special experience! The rooms were clean and private, with all glass walls and surrounded by rainforest trees! We found our keys easily, enjoyed our room and the thoughtful touches with heating rods for our towels, breakfast basket with fruit and snacks, the little fridge and our juices collection. The wood-and-glass construction was really rustic and romantic.
I personally did not find this place to be five star worthy but it became one of the highlights for our honeymoon so based on the happiness level of my wife, they get five stars. This is a small bed and breakfast type place nestled in the backwoods near Volcano, HI. Due to some regulations they are not allowed to serve hot breakfast but they did provide a breakfast in the fridge every afternoon to be eaten the next morning at your convenience. I loved this part as I wanted us to be on our own schedule not on the schedule of the B &B. They even provided us with a bottle of champagne as it was New Years Eve. The room was pretty clean and very updated. There is no cable television but that was to be expected with its more remote location. They do have a very large selection of movies to take back to your room for free to watch, however. The first night we stayed here it rained all night with thunder rumbling in the background. I will never forget the experience of sleeping in the jungle with the rain and thunder in the background. For anyone looking for a few day getaway then this is certainly the best place as it is within ten minutes of the Kilauea Volcano.
Amazing. Cozy. Awesome. PERFECT. they give you breakfast in the room, they have really sweet concierge-like receptionists. It's a perfect way to cap off a Hawaiian vacation.

Reviews:
My wife and I spent two nights at this location during our honeymoon and it was one of the highlights of the trip. I am mainly writing this review as an update to the reviews left by others as everything is still essentially the same as they describe it. Bill, the owner of the property, stopped by for a bit upon our arrival to give helpful information not just about the volcano area but about our whole trip. The house itself is tastefully appointed and the owners have thoughtfully provided a number of items such as flashlights, robes, an ice cooler, etc. A great variety of breakfast items and tea, of course, are provided and replaced daily. The hot tub provides a great setting for relaxation, set back a bit from the house along a lighted trail through the woods. The property is located on 2+ acres with beautiful landscaping and walking trails through dense vegetation. I would highly recommend this property as a place to stay during your visit to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Even though we were on the Big Island only a short time, it was one of the best places we stayed in our 2 week long vacation across multiple Hawaiian islands and Seattle. One of my favorite parts of the entire trip was sitting in the hot tub at night and listening to the bamboo. I love the privacy and the gardens were beautiful and the house is really comfortable. We managed to make it twice to Volcano National Park (day and night) and up to Mauna Kea for the sunset all in one day. The baked goods and fresh fruit and Portuguese sausage and eggs were wonderful we loved cooking in the kitchen and having a nice relaxing breakfast. Of course there was plenty of tea and coffee to choose from as well. I consider this one of the highlights of the vacation and money well spent.
It's been 2 weeks since me and my girl returned from our vacation on the big island, and I can't stop thinking about our trip--all those little moments that make the work-a-day world feel even more of a mundane trudge than usual. One of those little moments was our 2 idyllic nights at the Volcano Teapot Cottage. I found them on trip advisor and the description and photos sounded like some kind of storybook place that doesn't really exist--so I was skeptical--having been played the fool more than once from insidiously misleading vacation rental ads, where the description "ocean front" is code for a stenchy, dirty harbor view where crack of dawn garbage trucks come to pick up the fishy leftovers from the noisy hotel restaurant that happens to be one floor below. Volcano teapot cottage is paradise. It's quaint and cozy but not in a treacly way, and it's smack in the middle of the most incredible rain forest where amazing things grow and you can sit in the perfectly nestled hot-tub and watch the dew drip off the orchid blossoms, or take a zen walk through your own very private piece of the rain forest with nary a soul around, or soak in the claw-foot bathtub after a hike through the kiluaua-iki crater, or eat fresh papaya and home-made banana bread on the porch of the lovingly restored mission style bungalow and watch the Kalij pheasant couple that squat on the property, feeding on papaya skins. One day we made it back to the cottage right before a fierce thunder and lightening storm--we lit the gas "fireplace" in the livingroom, drew a bubble bath and ordered take-out gourmet pizza from an amazing restaurant down the street. Our host called to see if we were ok due to the intensity of the storm, but we couldn't have been happier, shut-in in this magical cottage together. The worst thing about it is that we were only able to stay 2 nights since we'd planned most of our stay on the other side of the island. When I return (and I definitely will), it will be for as many nights as I can eek out of my "real life"--Volcano Teapot Cottage will be our home-base--so much to see and do on this side of the island, add to that, time to just be still and listen to the birds, the rain, and pretend you are the protagonists in the last chapter of a fairy-tale.

Reviews:
As the previous reviews have mentioned, the setting is beautiful and secluded. We stayed 5 nights at the Bambo Guest Cottage. Loved the soaking tub under a pagoda...hear the rain...private...even a washer and dryer located under a porch outside of the cottage between bathroom and soaking tub. Great attention to detail...always neat and thoughtfully appointed. Only downside....queen bed mattress shot..lumpy, not supportive...that needs to be addressed. Would go here again !! Was able to drive to Hana, Hilo, Waterfalls, Volcanos...every day a new adventure on this great island.
Oh. My. I am typically a 5 star resort kinda person. Bed & Breakfast places really need to be great to make me happy. This. Is. It. The grounds are GORGEOUS. We stayed in two different rooms because they were booked for consecutive days. Both were beyond what I expected from a B&B. Attention to detail, amenities included, is an understatement. The staff willingly lugged all our baggage between rooms, and let us store our stuff after checkout. The owners weren't there that weekend (they were on vacation), but Ann was there to greet us. She was fabulous. She even saw us eating at a market and sat with us to discuss local hot spots. Overall, this place deserves FAR more kudos than I'm writing. Book the place.
Amazing place. Stayed in the Forest House for two nights with my wife. The back part of the place is open to the jungle and you are completely secluded and no one can see into the room. On that note, we never saw another person the entire time we were there. The owners who live on the property don't approach the guests, but give them complete privacy. The housekeeper is super nice. The housekeeper took the time to show us the Volcano National Park map, explain what to do there. She also showed us around the property and discussed local restaurants. In short, she was great. The inside of the place is very beautiful. They really make a good use of the space. We had a wood stove and small fridge. All water (sink and shower) is fresh rainwater. They recycle and ask you to put compost items in a special bin. The breakfast was all fresh fruit and juice. Overall it was a wonderful, peaceful experience.

* Price: on the high end for the area but is well worthy! Approximately $250 per night (including tax, fee, breakfast, wifi, etc.); 4star * Ambiance: zen, relaxing. 5 star. * Location: convenient, easy to find. Close to the park, volcano village (less than 10 minute drive). 5 star. * Motif: beautiful decor cottage with private entrance, on suite bathroom and tub. 5 star * Service: Mr. Kim is very pleasant and helpful! 5 star. Found this place through tripadvisor and we are glad to stay here! It is beautiful decor with plenty of privacy... not like other B&B. Each cottage is separate from each other, on suite bathroom, seating area, small kitchenette, and dinning area. The decor is beautiful asian Zen motif. The place is very clean. Mr. Kim waited up for us since we got in quite late. Breakfast was brought to your room by him in the morning by 8 AM. It is including local freshly cut and arranged fruits, biscuits and quiche. It is beautiful and delicious! There is a hot tub for guests. Laundry room is on site next to the Hula moon cottage. It is a perfect place to relax and listen to sound of rain and nature! We definitely will recommend this place to friends and family. Will come back... A hui hou!
We loved this B&B and John, the innkeeper that was there while we stayed. The best part is the location and privacy of the grounds. We also loved that the breakfast was brought to our room so we could eat it on our private patio (Lotus Suite) - we wish all B&Bs brought breakfast to the room! Breakfast was simple but good - usually two pastry/bread items per person and a lot of fresh fruit. Probably one of the best B&Bs we've stayed at. We also appreciated the super fast wifi, which was unexpected for the location.
Back in 2011, my husband and I stayed here for 1 night during our vacation on the Big Island. It was a wonderful stay, the owners were very friendly and sweet. We had a large room all to ourselves, and there was breakfast served in the morning. :) This is in close proximity to the volcano, and easy to find as well. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to family and friends who wish to stay near the volcano in Hilo!

Hale Ohia Cottages

11-3968 Hale Ohia Rd
Volcano, 96785
Reviews:
Utterly charming and a fantastic place to base yourself for exploring Volcanoes National Park. It's right off of Highway 11, but you'd never know it given how quiet the grounds are. My husband and I stayed in the Iiwi room which shares walls with two other rooms and is below a room, so you do get a bit of noise from your neighbors since everyone has hardwood floors and fairly thin walls. Our first night was very quiet as no one was in any of the other rooms, and our second night was less quiet given that people were upstairs and walking around at 5:20AM. To Hale Ohia's credit, they do mention that this room is noisier than others and they do caution people to be respectful of the other rooms. The rooms are all decorated nicely and are spotless - much more so than any other places we stayed on Maui, the Big Island, or Oahu. There are mini-refrigerators in every room, and a tasty (and filling!) breakfast of fresh bread (seriously AMAZING coconut bread one morning!), juice, coffee, tea, and cocoa, and fresh fruit is provided. The staff were all very friendly and helpful in providing maps and details on the town of Volcano. Additionally, Hale Ohia has flashlights for viewing the lava in the park, but they don't guarantee the batteries. Books abound in the main house and our room even had a couple of shelves of books and current magazines. The resident cat, Dixon, is very sociable and politely came to visit our room each morning. He sleeps in the gravel driveway during the day - so do be careful when driving in and out of the property. The gardens around the house are carefully tended and provided great places to lounge with a good book and glass of wine at the end of the day. All in all, a lovely place to be with the added bonus of being minutes away from the national park and right across the highway from the town of Volcano.
We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend for one night so that we could spend some time in the park. Beautiful property and cottages. A light, but good breakfast is placed in your room at night, so don't expect a full B/B style breakfast.
This is a beautiful property that is located within (long) walking distance to Volcanoes National Park. We opted for Cottage 44, which is a really cute craftsman built around an abandoned water catchment tank. Wonderful decor, a fireplace, jetted tub, and small kitchen area. The Queen bed was on a platform, which was a little disconcerting (we chose the detached cottage because we were traveling with our 6 month old, and didn't want to disturb the neighbors in one of the adjoining rooms in the main house), but it was a really comfortable bed. They stock your fridge with breakfast items the night before (fresh homemade bread, papaya, juice) which was all excellent. The cottage was really clean, the linens top rate. They had extra blankets for laying out on their beautiful lawn. The staff was friendly and didn't bother us at all. Check in was a breeze. It was the perfect location for a short (3 night) exploration of Hilo and Volcano areas of the Big Island. We would definitely stay here again. Note: no tv/cable, and our cell phones didn't work very well up there so make arrangements if you need to be in contact with the outside world.

Reviews:
Volcano Country Cottages - This place was great. We stayed in the Artist's House and it was perfect. Every day was started with a yummy breakfast of homemade breads, eggs, fruit, juice, coffee. Sandy and Garret are wonderful people who make you feel comfortable sharing this part of paradise. Garret gave us great tips on where to go, what to see, when to see it, where to eat, how to time the day... Can't wait to go back. If you just want to chill out - No TV just you a comfortable, homey, inviting place. You have got to try this place out!
We are extremely happy our travels brought us here, especially since it's just MINUTES away from the Hawaii Volcano National Park. Owney's Bottomline: Cheap, comfy, convenient and the perfect couple's get away on Big Island. The owners are VERY helpful and enjoyed giving us local tips on how to enjoy the park and the remainder of our stay on Big Island. They were also very respectful of our time when we let them know we had to decline a tour of the property since we were on such a tight schedule. We stayed in Ohelo Berry Cottage and found it clean, warm and comfortable. No TV or internet in the unit, but we cleaned up, dressed in our bath towels, listened to hawaiian music and had our best night's sleep in Hawaii. I wasnt a big fan of the breakfast, but my girlfriend really enjoyed the fresh fruit and both of us were big fans of the fresh banana bread. I also REALLY loved the fresh cream for my coffee and OJ in the fridge. Try out the lau lau at the deli down the street. it was FANTASTIC! A general tip for seeing lava: Pay up for a helicopter ride. on foot you can only really see it at night and the weather on Big Island is a bit spastic. The night we were there it was cold and rainy. We had a blast, but wish we could have gone on a helicopter ride to complete our trip.
Great location for close access to the national park. The owners of this B&B know a lot about the island, especially different places to see within the park. Some good advice about what to do with limited time in the park. They even gave us some recommendations on things to see and do after we left the park and continued our trek through the Big Island. We stayed in the Artist's House which was fine. The bed was comfortable and the other normal elements were in find order. They had fresh fruit and homemade bread out for us for our breakfast along with eggs in the fridge if we wanted to make some eggs for ourselves. Unfortunately, it was quite rainy while we were in Volcano so we didn't get to see as much as we would have liked. I would recommend staying in Hilo and driving over to Volcano when you know the conditions will be decent for exploring the park.

Wow...I dont even know where to begin. The Pukeawe Cottage is AMAZING!!! For the price you pay, its unbelievable! I am very very picky when it comes to finding a place to stay, and of of course our budget. I will spend weeks researching and spend lots of time looking at lots pictures to determine if its a clean place because Im very afraid of bugs. This place is spotless clean! Also the place is very big and homey. There's even a fireplace, a rare thing to find in Hawaii. Cold places in the Big Island would have only a heater, but this place has a heater in each room and a fireplace in the living room. Cant even think of anything this place doesn't have. It's just minutes away from the volcano national park, winery and a golf course. I would definitely recommend this place!
We stayed with friends at Pukeawe Cottage over the weekend and loved it. Well-appointed with thoughtful amenities, washer / dryer full kitchen, stocked with teas, coffee, etc. Breakfast was fresh, hot and delicious. We'll be going back with family.
Drove two plus hours only to find that I wasn't going to be staying here after all. I mentioned that I was going to be night diving and dropping in late. I was told that there would be an envelope with a key in it waiting for me. Instead, I got no phone call, no envelope, no key, and no answering the phone when I arrived. I was looking forward to staying here and breakfast in the morning, but they left me high and dry after a long drive. Still haven't received a call with an explanation. Thanks a bunch.

Aloha Junction Accommodations

19-4037 Olapalapa Rd
Volcano, 96785
Reviews:
If you're on the east side of the Big Island, I cannot recommend Aloha Junction enough. My wife and I were staying in Kona but wanted to spend a day exploring Volcanoes National Park and take a trip down to watch the lava flow into the ocean at night (we went through Kalapana Cultural Tours)... we wanted to be able to take our time exploring and not have to drive back to Kona at 3 am. We are so glad we found Aloha Junction. The rooms were comfy and the guy that owns it recommended some things to do in the area. The location was absolutely perfect for hanging out and exploring the volcano. Breakfast in the morning was amazing (blueberry pancakes with macadamia nuts), fresh juice, and papaya filled with yogurt, topped with banana slices.
Beware of hidden fees! We booked a room, specifically for 2 adults and 2 kids, on booking.com for $125. After we booked, they sent us an e-mail which asked for extra $40 for the 2 children. It was too late to cancel the booking without penalty. No where on the booking.com listing mentions this fee. The owner kept saying that, " booking.com - they don't list it" but other B&B in this area do list this fee in specific amount. I found it unfair to ask for this fee after the booking is confirmed. When we arrived, they didn't tell us what is the password for WIFI, nor did they tell us what is the time for breakfast. So I cannot comment about the WIFI strength. Mattress seem old, and it's mushy in the middle. I couldn't sleep well at night. Room is very big, but the bathroom is small (just a shower stall and a toilet). If you are big, it will be difficult. We submitted the same review to booking.com and it never shows up, while review of later dates have already shown up. No wonder this place only gets "wonderful" reviews! I cannot believe how dishonest booking.com is, and I will never book anything through them anymore!
This is the first bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. It was fantastic. :o) The location: One mile away from Volcano National Park at the end of a little (easy to miss) one lane driveway surrounded by beautiful, lush, green, foliage. The accommodations: Access to full kitchen with all the cookware, appliances, and dishes you care to use, living room with TV, DVD, and VCR complete with movies, games, and poker chips, a nook area with Hawaii maps and guidebooks, clean rooms with connected bathrooms, sinks, TV, and electric fireplaces, and most importantly, FREE WIFI. ;) The breakfast: Fresh papaya with banana slices and a lemon wedge (I can't stand the smell of papaya, but with a squeeze of lemon juice, it was gone and then so was the papaya ;D fresh eggs from Robert's chickens, and homemade blueberry macadamia nut pancakes with a myriad of syrups to choose from. Our host, Robert, was so nice and easygoing. He had a full house that night and didn't bat an eye at the number of pancakes he was going to flip the next day. =) He let my two children stay without charging us extra and held on to my camera for me when I left it there accidentally. Definitely recommended!!! :o)

Aloha Crater Lodge

11-3966 Lanihuli St
Volcano, 96778
Reviews:
The private lava tube tour on the property of the Aloha Crater Lodge alone made this a great place to stay for a night. But the kindness of the owners (Shannon and Dan) and affordability and cleanliness of our room made it a great choice too. Hubby and I were fortunate enough to get a room last minute on a Saturday night. The room was comfortable and I appreciated having a mini heater in the room because it did get a little chilly, even in July. The highlight of the stay was the private lava tube tour for me and my hubby led by Dan. He was very knowledgeable about the tube and it was great chatting with him and learning about the tube and the history of Hawaii, among other things. And since we ended up staying at the Aloha Crater Lodge last minute without knowing anything about the place (we usually search TripAdvisor thoroughly before staying anywhere), the lava tube tour was a wonderful surprise. It was complimentary because we were staying overnight, but I think there's a fee if people who are not guests want to do it. I've recommended the place to my friends who live on the Big Island if they or their visitors want to stay overnight near Volcano Park.
Great location in a lush forest setting and very close to the park and volcano village. We were greeted by very friendly dogs that my daughter loved. The accommodations are rustic, but quite comfortable for a great price. The fridge with yogurt, plus fruit, coffee, and assorted warm drinks are waiting for you in the room. The highlight was the tour of the lava tube that is on the property, which we took in the morning with Dan. Beats the touristy one in the park and my daughter loved it.
We stayed here for 3 nights 10-12 April. It was my first visit to Hawaii and I was so excited to be there! We drove from the airport on a wet and dull Friday afternoon and had a little trouble finding the place - we should've looked more closely at the directions owner Shannon had sent to us as they were very helpful and detailed. We stayed in Room 3 on the ground floor. The room has a very rustic feel but perfectly clean and cosy. The Lodge is located in the middle of a forest, it rains a lot, and I quickly learned to be careful with crumbs so as not to attract any uninvited visitors. The breakfast put in our room each morning was delicious and plentiful with homemade cakes, juice, yoghurt, coffee, real milk in the fridge, fruit and ... the absolutely best papayas we tasted in all our time in Hawaii! Shannon gave us some good tips about visiting the nearby volcano. She also kitted us out in hard hats and gloves before we followed her into a hidden opening in the undergrowth, down a ladder, and into the most amazing lava tube! We later visited the Thurston Lava Tunnel and there is no comparison! The Lava Tube at Aloha Crater Lodge is not full of crowds of visitors, and the formations are intact and beautiful. It was one of the highlights of our trip! We had a great experience at the Aloha Crater Lodge and would have no hesitation in recommending it to other travelers looking for a simple place to stay whilst exploring the Volcanoes National Park.

Thai Thai Restaurant

Reviews:
I'm not a huge fan of Thai food, but my husband and I were in Volcano, we were hungry, and it was after 7 PM. Not a lot of options. I think maybe one other place was open. My husband was sick (sad times) and the thought of noodles and soup sounded SO GOOD to both of us. The portions are generous, which on a normal day would be awesome for my hubby because of his enormous appetite but that day unfortunately it didn't really matter. Oh, and the Kona coffee ice cream was excellent. We actually ordered it for take-out, since we were staying at a place right around the corner. Customer service was good from what we saw. We'd go back!
WOW. Just ate the best green curry tofu of my LIFE here. My wife got the lemongrass chicken and was also very impressed. Staff was super friendly, too. What a gem! Service was slightly slow but the place was very full (on a weeknight), so I think this is acceptable. A+ nonetheless. I would wait hours for this food!
Fantastic Restaurant. I had the green curry with tofu and it was awesome. After some advice from the server on what level of hotness I should order, I decided to go for the "hot" rather than the "Thai Hot" and I'm glad I did cause my dish was super hot and bursting with flavor. One of the few restaurants I've been to where "hot" is actually HOT.
