We had a great time at Kuuipo Cottage! Everything we wanted or needed was provided! The cottage was clean and cozy. Everything was so nice!
We LOVED the deck outside! What a perfect place to sit while enjoying the peace and tranquility of nature.
The cottage is located close enough to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Volcano Village that we could come back when we wanted to rest, eat or clean up. It is even close enough to Hilo to take advantage of the shopping and activities there.
One day we drove to the Panaewa Zoo, which is an awesome free zoo on the road to Hilo. Going the other direction, toward Kona, holds another world of amazing things to see.
We highly recommend Kuuipo Cottage. We can't wait to go back again!
THANK YOU for the best accommodation of our vacation!
We loved this location; quiet, beautiful and authentic!!!! The house is adorable, clean and so comfortable. It really gives you the feeling of living in Hawaii. We even spend one day just visiting on the deck, and then went to see the crater at night! We will stay here whenever we come to Hawaii.
The moment you arrive you set your eyes upon the most charming cottage, surrounded by so many of Hawaii's beautiful plants and aromatic flowers. The grounds of the cottage is well kept and the property is surrounded with fragrant pikake (jasmine), puakenikeni, and striking 'ohia trees.
Once you step foot in the cottage you can't help but feel the warmth of aloha envelope you. The kitchen has all the modern conveniences you need, the living room is cozy with a fireplace and the bedroom has a big picture window that makes you feel like you're sleeping outside with nature. There's a great lanai that goes out to the back of the property where you can relax, sip your coffee in the morning or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.
Ku'uipo Cottage at night is another breathtaking experience. Being near the Volcano National Park means the evenings are quite cool and on a clear night the sky is filled with millions of stars and it feels like you can just reach out and touch it!
This is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life - relax and recharge !
