“The Hale Iki is amazing!”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We stayed in the Hale Iki, which is the coolest little cottage that Joan from the Country Goose manages. It was exactly what we wanted and loved our time there.

That being said, there were a few cob webs in the corners and there wasn't enough hot water to fill up the giant bath tub. The bedding could also stand to be updated. Breakfast is also included, which is a nice touch, but it is at Joan's house and you do have to drive to get there. It would have been nice to have the option of a breakfast basket or something delivered to the cottage.

We enjoyed talking with Joan and seeing the other side to Country Goose, she is a lovely hostess however I don't think the rest of Country Goose's accommodation is quite our style.

We did love the Hale Iki though, and if you're looking for a rustic, romantic getaway in the rainforest, this is the place!

This place was beyond my expectations and so was the hospitality that we were greeted with.. Jane has lots of aloha to share! The fern forest was such an amazing get away-you can listen and tune into the wildlife and get lost in the experience. The fireplace was an awe sum addition as the nites get chilly here and nothing like cuddling by a fire. Didn't get to use the tub tho..only unwelcoming thing due to spiders in the tub but thats expected in nature.. All in all this place has it all if u want to retreat into the woods and breathe in the beauty of a simple peaceful and quiet fern forest!

What a wonderful place. Very detailed and well thought out living, charming, beautiful, senses are stimulated with the rainforest setting, landscaping, birds. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise with heavenly waffles with berries and fresh whipped cream, fresh fruit, and very good coffee. Hostess, Joan, made you feel comfortable, good conversation, and great sense of humor. Highly recommend.

We stayed at Hale Iki, the Little House, that is run by Joan of the Country Goose and let me tell you, the 3 nights we stayed were the highlight of our trip. The cottage is absolutely incredible - from the hidden driveway, the path that leads you into the rainforest, and then this beautiful house appearing out of the trees and ferns. The house is perfect - we were there in June and had rain one night while we were there and had no problems with dampness or anything like that. The house is perfectly set up for a couple on a romantic vacation - fireplace for the chilly nights (we used it once while were there, and it was late-June!), mini-fridge, stove and oven, 2-person tub, windows all over that look out into the forest, wrap around porch, even a washer & dryer so you don't have to go home with so many dirty clothes from vacation! We arrived late on our first night, and Joan had given me the perfect directions to follow (which was great, because it was so dark out) and had our keys waiting on our bullentin board for us with drawn out directions on how to get to this hidden gem. Recommendation: If you can schedule it to get there during the light hours, do it, it is very dark throughout this entire area and makes it difficult to find your way to a new place (plus, comfort levels). We enjoyed breakfast with Joan (and her grandson and his children) at her house, which is located just about a mile away, before heading off to the HVNP for hiking and exploring. This is an awesome place to stay and we can't wait to return!! Thank you Joan and family for a memorable and wonderful experience!

We stayed in the Pukeawe Cottage for three days and loved it. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed (see separate Trip Advisor Pukeawe Cottage page for detailed reviews). It was nice to take a break from the heat at the lower elevations.

Joan provided the best breakfast, especially appreciated by our two boys ages 12 and 14. Depending on the day we either had waffles, pancakes, or French toast with handmade whipped cream and syrup, plus scrambled eggs, sausage, fresh fruit and coffee. Definitely didn't go hungry.

Joan was a great host and provided some good advice on things to do in the area (hikes and drives within the park). It was nice to hear her perspective on the goings on around the island.

Room Tip: This B&B is really a collection of nearby vacation homes, and Joan provides breakfast at her hou...

Firstly a word of warning - if you go to Volcano expecting wall-to-wall sunshine think again. This place is 3,500 feet above sea level in the tropics. The B&B is great though and surrounded by lush foliage. Room was comfortable, adequate and peaceful. Breakfast time with Joan is great - lovely home cooked food and interesting conversation with Joan and other guests.

Stayed here for 2 nights in April. It was our first stop. Room was nice and bed really comfortable. Loved the feeling of being in a rainforest. Slept with windows open to hear all the critters outside. Joan's breakfasts were absolutely fantastic! Her waffles and french toast are to die for! By far the best breakfasts in our entire 2 weeks. We are more b & b type of people than resort, so this place was perfect!
