“Beautiful and peaceful retreat”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

When we arrived at the Volcano Mountain Haven we were struck with how lovely it was. The view outside the picture window in the living room was beautiful (you have to see it in the morning!) and the whole house was wonderfully lit by sunlight throughout the day. The vegetation around the house were well maintained and dense enough that you didn't see the neighbors. This was the nicest place we stayed at on our trip to the Big Island, not only from the comfort standpoint, but also from the overall beauty and peacefulness of the place. Candice and Richard have done a great job with the place and have a binder of useful information for how things in the house work as well as what to do and eat in and around Volcano and Hilo. We loved our stay and would definitely go back!

“Beautiful cabin in the rainforest”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Candice was extremely responsive and helpful with information on Volcanos Park, local restaurants and about any other information you could imagine. The cabin is very conveniently located, comfortable and equipped with anything you might need (including flashlights for nightime lava viewing in case you forget yours, travel books, DVDs, basic kitchen supplies, etc.).

“Amazing jungle cottage”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This space was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted to spend some time in Volcano and experience that side of the island. Candice did a wonderful job in welcoming us and giving suggestions on the "must see's" in the park. The mountain haven is tucked up in the beautiful rain forest surrounded by flowers and birds. The space had everything we needed and was VERY clean and cozy. Sitting by the fireplace and listening to the rain showers was the most relaxing part of our trip! We spent the first 5 days at a Kohala resort and going to the beach. This space was a perfect contrast to the beautiful beaches...sitting in the middle of a flower filled rain forest in a romantic little cottage. We got the best of both worlds!

“This is a lover's and/or writer's paradise!”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you are desiring a peaceful, secluded, and thoroughly appointed space to relax and unwind in a rainforest paradise, this is it. Your comfort and convenience are the priority of hosts Richard and Candice, and their attention to detail is seen everywhere...from the "fireplaces" in the bedroom and living room (it can get a bit chilly in Volcano at night) to the heated towel racks in the bathroom. I live in Waimea, which is also "upcountry" on the Big Island so this stay was due to a business trip that I had in Kau. Even though I was working each day, I felt like I was having a relaxing vacation when I came back each evening. I will definitely return...hopefully next time as a writing retreat or to spend a romantic getaway with my husband. I HIGHLY recommend this rainforest sanctuary!

We stayed here as a respite from all the tourist hustle and bustle in Kailua-Kona. It is amazingly beautiful and quiet -- except for the sounds of nature. It is like staying in a treehouse in a fairyland fern forest. The hosts, Candace and Richard, anticipated our every need, and we loved all the little details that made us feel so pampered. Everything was so fresh and clean. And, of course, Volcanoes National Park is just down the street. It was so convenient to visit the park -- we went three days in a row. It was so easy to just drive in after dinner and watch the night glow of the Kilauea caldera. We would definitely stay here again!
