“Oh I loved this place so much.”
Reviewed 25 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A gorgeous cottage in the forest with little Menehunes; if you don’t know what those are, look them up and be prepared to live a little bit like you are in a fairy tale. The owners thought of everything with this spot. All the utensils, toiletries, movies, games, books, coffee, popcorn; a lot of little touches that added up to a perfect spot to stay while visiting the park. I will definitely book this place again the next time I am on the island!

“Beautiful, well outfitted, clean, great location, friendly service”
Reviewed 18 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

If you want to stay in a restorative sanctuary outfitted with cooking and comfort in mind this is the place. This one bedroom cabin is located in a forested neighborhood right outside the gate of Volcanos National Park. Close enough to easily enjoy the sunset and sunrise glows at the vent within Halema'uma'u Crater or day hikes anywhere in the park. The owner has thoughtfully outfitted this cabin from extra blankets, electric blankets on the bed and a electric fireplace for the crisp nights to the well equipped and clean kitchen. There are fun books and movies, umbrellas, a wonderful guide book to the area written by Leslie and a beautiful lanai to enjoy the many shades of green, the flowers and honeycreepers that frequent the yard. After a week in the island the humidity can make everything a little damp. Leslie has thought of this too and has a dehumidifier in the cabin that helps to keep the place dry and warm.

“Great location for hiking!”

Very clean and well managed nice apartment close to the Hawaii Volcano National Park. Staying here makes it very easy to do all the hikes you have been waiting for. It is very cool up here, but the apartment has all the amenities for a comfortable stay. It is a bargain in this location, and in general, in Hawaii.

i had stayed with my husband at this property , and knew it would suit my uncle and aunt visiting from England. It certainly did; they are birdwatchers, and saw many interesting birds just around the house. We also enjoyed how well-stocked the house was, and how convenient to the Park. The house was immaculate, as always. Definitely a wonderful centre for a Volcano vacation.

“Clean but problematic”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

This house was very clean and well equipped. However I found a few problems: 1)There was a washer and dryer in the house, but warnings not to use it unless you stayed four days. (Rules, rules, rules--- very unwelcoming) ( 2) The lanai does not look out onto a garden (as depicted) but onto an ugly water tank. 3) There was a very stinky, plug-in Air-wick that made the house smell terrible. OWNERS OF RENTALS, PLEASE DO NOT PUT THESE STINKY THINGS IN YOUR RENTAL UNITS! The smell you are trying to cover up could not be worse that these plug-in, artificial smelling things. Many people (myself included) have reactions to these smells.

Very helpful to get all input, thank you.

I have to agree on the plug in fragrances.. I don't like those myself and will have that discontinued.. I know my house helper has done that as a nicety, not as a cover up...

In all places that mention a washer dryer, we also indicate the limitation we need to make on making it available beyond our own housekeeping.. We purposefully do not include it in pictures so that it would not be expected without having read about it, it's also in the agreement agreed to before any payment is made. It is disappointing to see it there and not be able to use it, I understand. Though we've done all we can for it to be clear if there is an expectation of a w/d .

The lanai picture shown is from the cottage that does also have the water tank between the two cottages. It is a clean, cement, painted brown, and gardened around tank about 5' tall (volcano is all on catchment). As several repeat guests request this same cottage after staying there I do know it is not offensive to everyone or have had it brought to my attention as a negative before and I am sorry it was a displeasure..

We do really make an effort to offer a place that guests feel they got a bargain and will continue to try with the input and what we can. Mahalo, Leslie

Exactly as described. We had a short stay but loved the location - so close to the park. Quiet area. Easy to find with the instructions. We had everything we needed in the cottage.
