We are thankful that we had the opportunity to stay at KMC, as it afforded us the chance to see Kilauea's red glow at night and enjoy some hiking in the early morning hours. The 2 bedroom / 1 bath cabin we stayed in did not have a full kitchen, but did provide a microwave, coffee machine and small fridge, which was all we needed for a 1-night stay. The furnishings are older but well maintained, and kind of reminded me of staying at my grandparents house - dated, but clean and comfortable. We had one double bed and 2 twins which was perfect for our family of 4. When you go, pay attention to the cabin windows - each cabin has its own stained-glass window design, some more ornate than others, which is quite pretty to view at night. Our stay was so short we did not take advantage of the various activities and amenities (general store, restaurant, etc.), but were pleased to find a gas station. The location is hard to beat!
