Volcano Artist Cottage
Reviewed 3 September 2012

We stayed here Saturday night for our anniversary and were so pleased with the cottage and gardens. It's a tiny and cozy little cottage decorated simply and tastefully but has everything you would need even for a longer stay, fully equipped kitchen, a beautiful big bathroom and tons of books if you are a reader. The owners don't live on the property so you have it all to yourself with the exception of that adorable resident Ernest the goat.(He's out in his enclosure). We enjoyed the hot tub out on the deck and even there's no deck cover the Cedar tree shielded it from any rain. The Princess flowers outside the big picture window in the kitchen area were spectacular. A very relaxing, romantic place.

We stayed there for four nights and really liked it. Great location to explore the volcanoes national park and south east of the island. Great host, super team, exceptionally great garden, hot tub and cool cottage.

Very charming little cottage, perfect for a couple looking for calm and serenity. After the little café closes, the beautiful zen & art garden is all yours. And when it get's dark, a very romantic lighted path leads you to the bath tub. Highly recommended!

I wish I could give this cottage a higher rating because Ira, the owner, is such a delightful person. But the cottage is so small that it was not a pleasant place to stay, in my subjective opinion. The bed is pushed sideways into an alcove, so one person has to climb over the other to get out during the night; there is also some kind of water pump outside the bedroom window that runs 24 hours a day. I hate to guess, but I would say that the kitchen-dining-living area is about 10 feet by 6 feet, and the bedroom area not covered by the bed is about 7 feet by 3 feet. Those are very small areas. The bathroom, which has been added on, is large. The landscaping is nice and, once the art gallery closes at 5, you are all by yourself with all the privacy anyone could want. A washer and dryer is available outside of the gallery. WiFi is adequate. Like all of Volcano, it is only a couple of miles to the National Park entrance.

We stayed here three nights with our one-year-old son and loved everything about it. It definitely is small and slightly rustic, but we are a cozy small family (our son slept on a futon on the floor) who enjoy cozy small spaces. Artistic design touches everywhere in and around the cottage and gardens.
It's unassuming and definitely not a luxury place, but has everything you need in the kitchenette (although you'd better bring your groceries from Kona or Hilo, because there's no real market in town). The bathroom is gorgeous. As for the low water pressure, it makes sense when you recognize that it's running on collected rainwater in this true rainforest location, so I think Ira does everything he can to encourage folks to conserve. Especially because the shower is so lovely you want to stay in it a while! The outdoor hot tub was a pleasant surprise for us.
The whole place is totally private - there is only the one unit, and Ira leaves at night - so it is just you and Ernest the goat, who is also charming. Ira is a delightful host. He was very accommodating when the propane heater cut out one chilly evening; he came right over and fixed the situation. Volcano is in a rainforest, so everything does stay ever so slightly damp and musty, but totally worth it if you remember where you are.
We loved the cafe as well - simple, delicious vegetarian food and beautiful pastry.

if you like cozy little spaces, this is for you. if you like wide open huge rooms, this is not for you. We loved it. Super cute, unprepossessing. The hot tube was heavenly. also features a cute little kitchenette. Drawbacks: shower pressure is low (but sufficient if you have chin length hair), quite small, only one chair to relax in. Despite this, we felt instantly at home. Stayed 2 nights.

We stayed here for one night while visiting Volcanoes National Park. The cottage is cute but dated. While the bathroom has been recently added, the water pressure for the shower is disappointing. Similarly the hot tub is on its last legs.

On the plus side, this cottage is very private and pleasant. You have a little kitchen, a nice heater (it gets cold at night) and a nearby pet goat. Also the lady that cleaned the place was awesome (somewhat the opposite of the lady in the cafe).

On the downside the setting around the cottage is of water tanks and other plumbing. The bed is not very long and runs to the wall, so if you're too much over six feet you might be uncomfortable. On that note, the mattress is also due for replacement.

Also, the food at the cafe was okay but nothing special. It was also all vegetarian which I hadn't noticed from skimming reviews.
