Hilo Hideaway

5 on June 16, 2016

Bill and Antoinette have thought of everything in terms of the comfort of their guests. From the first minute we stepped foot in the cottage to our last wave good-bye, we were enchanted by the decor, the food, the beautiful surroundings. Nothing that a guest could need is lacking - from toiletries, to robes and slippers to umbrellas and board games. The food provided was delicious and the selection of teas and coffees was extraordinary. My fondest wish would be that this cottage were near my home so I could go often for a little break. Bill is the consummate host. He sent information to us before we arrived and spent time with us when we first arrived at the cottage to tell us about the area. The cottage is perfect for a couple or a family with children.

Would give 6 stars if possible.

This was truly a great place to stay. It was a home-away from home. Close to the park and just amazing.

Really enjoyed our stay here , wish we had stayed longer . The owner Bill greeted us and briefed us on all the amenities and advised us on things to do on the island .Everything was like being home no need for anything , including a stocked refrigerator for all we needed for breakfast, including wonderful pastries stocked each day. The grounds around the house were beautiful and had a hot tub pavilion.Do not hesitate to stay here was more than I expected.

The Teapot was a vacation on our vacation. A true anniversary treat. Everything was perfect from start to finish. We were able to relax and enjoy in our own personal Hawaiian hideaway! I would highly recommend.

If you want privacy and peace and quiet, this is the place to stay in Volcano. The cottage has everything you could want and feels like a home. Bill was a wonderful and helpful host.

Amazing, delightful private cottage

My wife and I just spent four days at the Volcano Teapot Cottage. What a delightful private cottage nestled in a 2 1/2 acre rain forest. The owners were attentive and helpful and provided a wonderful selection of fresh fruit, pastries, juices, etc. every morning. We highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful paradise

The cottage and grounds are magical! Bill had a wonderful selection of breakfast items to chose from. Our only regret is that we didn't plan for one more day in Volcano to spend enjoying these beautiful surroundings! I would highly recommend the Volcano Teapot Cottage to anyone visiting Volcano!

Wonderful stay

We stayed for 3 nights in December and all of the reviews about this place are accurate. It is the entire cottage, very comfortable with every amenity you could possibly want, great location close to the park (about 10 minute drive). Bill was a delightful host, with a delicious breakfast left for us every day and he also gave us many recommendations on what to do and see around the area. We particularly liked Wednesday night at Uncle Roberts (that was a real treat) and we would definitely stay at the Teapot again.

Best stay in all of Hawaii!

We so enjoyed our stay at the teapot we cannot wait to return! Bill is the ultimate host, you feel so welcome. The cottage itself is simply delightful, with everything and more that one could hope for to be comfortable. The food at the tuk tuk Thai food truck, recommended by Bill, is simply the best we've had !
