This cottage has a large comfortable bed and beautifully tiled bathroom. The kitchenette has only a microwave, Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, toaster so don't plan on eating in often. There is a toaster oven which requires moving everything off the counter.
The space is comparable to a modest hotel room but it is quiet and secluded. For stays longer than a couple days it is too small.
It is close to the volcano.
There are no good grocers near so bring supplies with you.
We absolutely loved the Dancing Bamboo. First and foremost the property and cottage were immaculate. I have never stayed at a cleaner, more thoughtfully equipped place. Super large shower, bathroom and comfy bed. Fantastic breakfast. I didn't know how much l liked papaya. Peaceful rains in the early morning. The property is secluded but not far from the volcano park. Quiet. Beautiful flowers. Lots of good literature about the area. It was a little paradise. It is certainly the best place I have ever stayed...ever. I can't say enough. Stay at the Dancing Bamboo!
We had a great stay! The cottage was clean and welcoming. Karen did a great job bringing in food for breakfasts. Would definitely stay again!
The Dancing Bamboo bungalow was a perfect place to stay for a visit to Volcano National Park. It also worked perfect for a trip to Hilo, and having a great, relaxing room to come back to after a long day.
All of the pictures show exactly the room as presented. Karen had the kitchen well stocked for our trip and the large shower was great after the 10.5 mile hike to see the lava flow into the ocean. Karen was very responsive and quick to help out when we had questions.
We would definitely stay here again, and have already recommended it to friends.
My wife and I arrived on the island about 3 hours prior to hurricane Madeline. During the lead up to that time Karen kept a running dialog updating us on the conditions and making recommendations for a safe arrival. Karen went WAY above and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of. The wind howled and the rain came but that property is built to handle it. The next day it was fantastic weather again.
The Dancing Bamboo is a beautifully decorated free standing cottage only 6 miles from Volcano National Park. The kitchen was fully stocked with juice, milk, cereal, papaya and english muffins. It’s quiet and feels secluded surrounded by a bamboo forest and Hawaiian rain forest. It was soooo cute and decorated in a frilly but homey way.
The shower is extra, extra large and just luxurious.
If you are looking for something special, something romantic, something secluded, look no further.
