“Excellent Volcano park base and Charming place, but...”
Reviewed 27 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We arrived during a coldish rain, so the place appeared a bit gloomy. It has a nice colonial jungle feel. The decor is interesting, dark, and a bit busy which contributes to not feeling at home. It had a strong Febreeze smell. We got comfortable once we had a little fire going. I understand the use of fluorocompact bulbs to save energy, but the light tint it creates adds to the gloomy feel at dark: a detail. The place is in a perfect location to explore Volcano park and surroundings like Black Sand beach, and it is very tranquil. It is a jungle paradise for birds and sipping coffee on the outside balcony in the morning, especially when it is sunny, is very charming. It can get cold, so the provision of small heaters was very appreciated. The kitchen is ok, but it's not the best organized I've experienced of similar rental places, so for that, I take back a star (seriously, every kitchen needs thongs! :). It has a pretty complete set of dishes etc. But the organization and ergonomics is off for people who really want to cook. The place is very clean but not spotless, so for that I take another half-star (again compared to similar rental experiences and price). For example, the BBQ grill was mouldy - I cleaned it, and I know, it's in the jungle, but still. The third bedroom is separate from the main building. It smelt slightly mouldy and uninviting in the gloom. We ended up not using it and our daughter slept on the couch in the main building. We didn't use the spa either. Although the water was clear, there was a yeasty smell. Finally, I take another half-star for the lack of a few essentials that are typically provided with rental houses such as dish clothes, paper towel and we ran out of toilet paper. Linens were comfortable and fresh, towels provided and nice clean bathrooms. So overall, to summarize my 'Seinfeld' style review, a nice place, that's a bit rough around the edges. Probably perfect when the sun is more regular and people that don't intend to do serious cooking. It has a lot of potential to fix these small 'issues' though and really shine as THE place to stay in Volcano.

“Cozy & Private Cabin in the Woods”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here one night in late April. Very cozy and private. Surrounded by rainforest. Even though it is in a housing development, you feel like you are in the middle of the woods. Seldom have I been in a place with such an absence of light at night. Hot tub just outside is perfect for soothing those sore muscles after an active day of hiking at Volcano Park. Inside there is ample space - bedrooms each have their own bathrooms and there is a large living room and den that look out on the well cared for and lush gardens that surround the cabin. Kitchen is ample as well and includes a dishwasher for easy cleanup. It is well furnished. The cabin is about a three minute drive from Volcano Village that has a few restaurants, convenience store, and gas station. Be aware that these places all close very early at night. This is a great place to spend some time near the volcano and truly relax.

“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 12 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Very welcoming and cozy. Beautiful property, like a hideaway in the forest.
Quiet location and a good place to retreat. Can get chilly in the evenings, so prepare some wood for the fireplace in advance.
It can use some additional dusting and detail cleaning, but that does add to the "cottage in the woods" experience. The jacuzzi could also use some preparation, so might ask in advance. Everything we needed was there and available. It's really a nice place to stay, and we wished we could've stayed longer, and had planned in a few more days to sit and relax there.

“Lovely atmosphere and beautiful grounds”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The location was fairly easy to find even when arriving at night. The gate was open and the keys were available as described. The grounds are beautiful. We had some plumbing stop up briefly, but were able to locate a plunger in the garage area and took care of it easily.

We were extremely pleased to find the property as shown and described in trip advisor. We stayed for a total of 4 weeks and used the property as our based for visiting the Eastern side of the island. The service manager was very helpful and met all of our needs. We were able to cook meals if we wished or use the nearby available cafes or restaurants. We did a combination during our stay. We used the fireplace every morning before preparing our breakfast. There are plenty of local fruit markets near Hilo that we used to always have tropical fruit for the main part of our breakfast. It only takes about 5 minutes to reach the entrance to the volcano park from the house and about 20 minutes to drive to Hilo.
