Volcano Guest House

Reviewed 26 March 2014

The Volcano Guest House is close to the park so very convienent. We liked the grounds, lots of plants, quiet. My husband, son and I stayed in The Cottage for two nights, it was very spacious. The rooms were clean but kind of old and worn out. The main bed in our house was very uncomfortable, it took a couple of hours for the kinks to work out in our backs in the mornings. It had a mold, dampness issue but its in a rainforest so some of that is expected. They do a lot of recycling so that was cool.

This place didn't seem really like a bed and breakfast. I expect to spend a little time with the owners at a B & B. The owners never introduced themselves, said hello at breakfast, offered help with restaurants or activities. Its not like were were looking for new friends or anything but at least acknowledge our presence. Its kind of how you are treated in a huge hotel but none of the hotel goodies like a pool, restaurant, and excercise room. The breakfast wasn't impressive. The baked goods were stale the first day and the leftovers showed again the second day, yuck. I was a little worried about how long the food had been left out.

My daughter and I chose the Volcano Guest House out on the internet living 2,500 miles apart. (She lives in Kailua-Kona, I live in LosAngeles, CA.) The Trip Advisor was a big help in making the perfect choice.

The owners are super nice and helpful. Our Upstairs Room was as pictured only better! The pictures don't capture the roominess and "home feeling" it had. One night it was chilly but theres a portable heater to use. Our windows looked over part of the lush rain forest. One of the bedrooms and the living/dining/kitchenette windows looked over three cows grazing one morning!

The park entrance is only a few miles away and each room had laminated maps of Volcano Village, the park and the crater lookout, etc. so that made it real easy for us. We dined at Lava Rock Cafe one evening and did take-out from the same place the next, which was a good idea as it rained all night. The next morning it was crystal clear.

The Breakfast Lanai is bright and cherrie and very clean and theres plenty of fresh fruit, coffee, breads, etc. You can even cook your own eggs!

The grounds are a nice place to walk around to take pictures of the flowers.

If we return to Volcano this is where we'll stay!

Room Tip: We were told we would be going through the living room/ kitchen area. It was fine as we were prepar...

We really enjoyed our stay at Volcano Guest House. The owners were responsive to email from the very beginning, and accommodated our later check-in time. We stayed in Twin II, which was cosy, clean and equipped with everything we needed. The property was quiet and safe, and we had a lot of privacy. Breakfast was mostly self-serve, but the range of food provided was quite good, and eggs were prepared in advanced, which was a nice bonus. The location of the guest house itself is great - it was a quick drive to the park. I definitely recommend Volcano Guest House to anyone looking to spend a few days in the park.

Despite a regular drizzle each morning & evening and the Volcano NP closed due to Govn't Shutdown we certainly enjoyed our little Twin II cottage. Surrounded by lush vegetation, tiny birds flitting in the canopy and lots of fresh air it was such a nice getaway spot. Not for those who want a high-end resort style B & B, but perfect for those who appreciate the natural environment and prefer to leave a small footprint. We found the breakfast choices just fine, with papaya, local raisin-cinnamon bread, eggs, cereal and lots of coffee...which all is available all day! Not many places do that. Our only suggestion would be that the unit be warmed up prior to guests arriving when it's cold weather. We felt damp for awhile.

Room Tip: This is our second stay here. The Twin's are quite comfortable.

warmhearted hosts, peaceful place, good situated (10 min from the NP, 5 min. to the village) The cottage has all you need and is lovingly furnished. The breakfast was good, there was everything we needed. We (3 people) loved especially the fresh fruits bananas and papayas. The best thing is that you are in the middle of the rainforest and the hosts are environmentally aware (sun heater).

Beautiful setting and peaceful. Good location for Volcano NP. We stayed in the Cottage. Breakfast was disappointing after having lovely fresh fruit and yoghurt at our last place of stay in Hilo before going to Volcano. We didn't get a set of keys to lock our door but didn't worry about it in the end as the place seemed safe enough. Comments about the owners not being over friendly were true. We found you could only access the wifi if you went to the sign in lobby. Laundry facilities were good.

Lovely location in a residential neighborhood. A 10 minute drive to the park. The property and gardens Beautiful , and the common room for breakfast provided nice morning coffee,ripe papaya (I love the papaya ripening closet) as well as hard-boiled eggs and peanut butter and bananas and toasting bagels.We had The twin bedroom in Okala. While the room and the kitchen&common space was fine, the bathroom& sheets clean, our actual beds were extremely uncomfortable. That is my only complaint.

Room Tip: Ask if there any bedrooms with new mattresses.
