Quaint, Cozy, Well-appointed CottagePosted Mar 2, 2014
Pros: So many extras, very cozy & comfortable, nice to be in separate cottage, awesome hosts.
Cons: A little more thorough cleaning.
Location: It's the Big Island - besides the volcano very close, there's the black sand beach, all the other things Hawaii offers.
We arrived to lights lit, slippers waiting, and a lovely banana leaf welcome note. The bed was already made up for our two kids. Our hostess arrived shortly afterwards, and was delightfully friendly and welcoming, wanting to make sure we had everything we needed. The cottage had all kinds of drinks, breakfast & other food items there, which is great, since town is a short drive away. It also had lots of extras like beach blankets & a cooler. It was very close to the park, which made going back and forth convenient. The neighborhood was quiet, and the surroundings were lush plants and flowers. The place could have used a little extra thorough cleaning & TLC in and out, but was nice & comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay!

close to VolcanoPosted Sep 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is a house that you are renting. It is not a bed and breakfast. The refrigerator is stocked with food but restaurants are 1.5 miles away

Comfortable accommodationPosted Aug 6, 2013
Pros: Proximity to the park
Cons: Toilet flush wasn't working well
This is a very nice place to stay if you want to be close to the national park. Room is clean, the hosts are very nice & accommodating. Slightly cramped if you have 4 people but adequate for 2 people.

Great place!Posted Jul 30, 2013
Pros: We loved that the kitchen was stocked. Sodas, snacks, fruits, breakfast items. The last thing we wanted to do was go food shopping!
Location: The volcano!
Bob was very welcoming! Lots of extras. I like that flashlights, sweatshirts and rain jackets were available so we didn't have to pack those items. Place was cozy. It was nice to come from a hotel to the cottage and have some room to spread out. Really nice place, would definitely recommend it!

Not what I expectedPosted Jul 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
The owners of the home were lovely people. It just wasn't what I expected. I booked the artist cottage thinking that I was staying at a Bed and Breakfast. I was getting a room and someone was making me breakfast. In reality I was staying in the adjacent property or rental home and I had to make my own breakfast and do my own dishes. For the price I would have preferred to stay in a hotel and have someone else clean up after me, not turn on/off the water heater before and after my shower etc.

Very friendly servicePosted Jun 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
The owners are very nice and helpful, I spoke with Bob a couple times on the phone and he was very helpful in allowing us a late check-in and giving us directions to the cottage. We met Bonnie when we arrived and she showed us around the cottage and gave us some tips on things to do in the area. we were planning to go to see the volcano in the morning but she told us we needed to go at night to see it and she was right. The night view was amazing. The park is just a couple minutes down the road. The cottage was very cute and fully stocked with food, drinks, toiletries, etc. 3 slept comfortably with a queen bed in the bedroom and a full bed in the living room.
