Musty and allergy-inspiring—good location though

2.4 on January 22, 2014

Wasn't expecting a LOT but there are some things you need to expect. First of all, Volcano is a very moist environment, and the house/rooms are poorly sealed. You'll notice the musty smell as soon as you walk in the door, and it doesn't get better in your room. My allergies were going nuts the whole time—sneezing and snuffling and keeping the girlfriend up with snores (I don't usually snore!). Second, the house is right next to a farm, which sounds charming until the roosters pop off at 3 am, 4am, 5am, and 6 am. And if it isn't the roosters, it's the cat meowing loudly, the dog next door yelping, or the donkey (yep, the donkey) braying loudly enough to wake you up. Bring earplugs and allergy medicine! All this said, the location is excellent—it's a great launching off point for explorations of Kilauea. Assigned a dining score of 'Met my Expectations' as there is no dining available at the house.

Innkeeper Response
Yes you are correct, it is damp here with an average of 300+ inches of rain per year- this is after all a rainforest. Hence, expect damp humid conditions and cooler temperatures due to an elevation of 4,000'. This is precisely why each accommodation is equipped with a dehumidifier as well as in the common areas. The house dates back to 1898, yes that's right, it is one of the oldest remaining structures in Volcano rare and filled with history. So therefore, it is not sealed like a vacuum. As far as your allergies go did you not prepare for the fact that there is a volcano about three miles away as a crow flies which leaches all sorts of gas and other debris into the air? More than likely the source for your allergy attack. On days when the VOG is bad most folks living here do not even go outside. Therefore, had you taken this into consideration you would have packed those much needed meds for your condition. And yes, this is a farmstay, so you should have expected farm animal noise. No, we have no donkeys, but we do have 6 horses and offer horseback riding. When traveling its always a good idea to have ear plugs especially when you stay at the luxuriant hotels and have to listen to the elevators "ding" all night long through the air conditioning ducts. Hope this has been helpful to you as well as for other guests.


A lovely place

3.0 on December 20, 2013

This is a lovely place with lots of nice, thoughtful touches for guests. Like a DIY B&B without the breakfast! We stayed in the bamboo room which has two beds. It's a little tight but works fine and is a good value at $99. The tub was a welcome amenity and the shower was great. There's a nice dining area with a fridge and microwave, dishes and lunch packs--very helpful for those who want to eat in and/or make their own lunches, though be warned that the grocery stores have pretty slim and expensive pickings. Also looked like extra jackets and umbrellas for those who forget theirs. There's a computer with wifi, tons of videos to choose from, and books galore. The fireplace is nice, loaded with wood & kindling, but the room immediately filled with smoke and there didn't seem to be a way to vent it better. There is a distinct musty smell to the place, which might bother some people. Also be aware that you can't drop off luggage before checking in, though the owner assured us that the park was safe (we had no problem). All in all, a great value.


OUTSTANDING!

If you love vintage and feeling like you're at home then you have to come here. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the accommodations have everything you could ask for. This B 'N' B is loaded with charm and character.

3.2 on November 27, 2013

Overall great place to stay in Volcano. A very minor grumble - we stayed 3 nights and did not encounter the owner/property manager in this time.


It's good.

4.4 on September 26, 2013

The room is quite good and cozy. But the environment is too dark if you arrive late.
