Lovely B&B for exploring the Volcano National Park

Posted Jun 28, 2017
Pros: Private atmosphere, great breakfast and located in the middle of nature.
Cons: Nothing to improve.
Location: This is the perfect stay to visit Volcano National Park. It is less than 10 min from the entrance. The town Volcano has great restaurants (try Thai!).
This is a lovely Bed and Breakfast in close proximity (less than 10 min) to the Volcano National Park. We stayed for three nights. The innkeeper is lovely and creates a fabulous breakfast with fruits, waffles, muffins, quiches etc. All guests are having breakfast together at one big square table, which is nice to get connected and share travel highlights. Our room was clean and beautiful. We had plenty of towels, a shared fridge in the main area, free bottled water, free Wifi, a small patio and the innkeeper was there to help if you needed anything else. We used the hot tub twice in the evening after a long day of sightseeing. Very relaxing. This house is basically in the middle of a tropical forest at the shoulder of the Kilauea. Its very green and you hear the frogs singing at night. A perfect vacation stay. Thanks so much! We hated leaving!

Great Bed and Breakfast

This house in Volcano was built as a B&B and has 5 BR each with their own bath. Lori, the Innkeeper, puts on a fabulous group breakfast at 8 am where you can interact with the other guests.

Very Nice Bed & Breakfast

Posted May 29, 2017
Pros: The innkeeper was very nice and made us feel at home. The morning breakfast was excellent. The room was nicely furnished and very clean.
Location: Lava Pond Lodge is only a few miles from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. There is a lot of good hiking and sight seeing in the park.
Lava Pond Lodge was an excellent place to stay on Hawaii Island. The room was very clean and the morning breakfast was excellent. The innkeeper was extremely nice and made us feel at home. We met many other people staying at the lodge and shared travel experiences. It was close to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which provided many sightseeing and hiking opportunities. It was also close to other places to visit.

Excellent B&B minutes from Volcano National Park.

Posted May 26, 2017
Great place to stay for location to park but, more importantly, the proprietress, Lori, is an angel in disguise. Very informative and caring. The papaya fruit bowl is not to be missed.

Wish we could of stayed longer

Posted Apr 27, 2017 on Lastminute
Pros: John the host. Caitlen the owner and the rest of the guests.
Location: Emerald beach hike was great. its 20 inutes down the road and requires a 45min hike each way, worth it if you have the time!
Loved everything about this very affordable place. It is on 8 hectres of land that has macadmia bushes, mango and orange trees all free for the picking. John our host for the night made us sushi, cooked us awesome breakfast and introduced us to macadamian infused coffeee. An absolute legend that did all of this (free) out of the goodness of his heart. We felt lucky to have landed on such a gem!
