Nous avons passé 3 jours de rêve dans cette maison de charme très bien décorée. Les propriétaires sont très sympatiques et serviables : ils ont pris le temps de nous expliquer ce qu'il y avait à voir dans la région. Ils nous ont remplis le frigo de délicates attention. La vraie class à l'américaine ! Le jacuzzi extérieur est divin et le jardin tropical est superbe ! Un endroit de rêve... Le coup de coeur de notre voyage à Hawaii

This beautiful, cozy home was ideal for us...in a remote, quiet area and with a spa to relax in after our long hikes. The cottage was spotlessly clean and everything, including appliances and electrical outlets, worked perfectly. Wi-Fi signals were strong and steady. The owners kept us fed every day with ample quantities of delicious, fresh pastries and fruit. Bill and Antoinette were extremely helpful, providing sight-seeing tips and answering any questions we had. They need to update the local menus they have on display, however...hamburger plates for $4.50 haven't been available in the US for maybe 20 years (is this nit-picky enough?).

Charming cottage with hot tub located in the rainforest near Vocanoes National Park. The cottage has all the modern amenities you would need to have a comfortable stay and the host daily stocks provisions for you to make breakfast. A wonderful stay in a unique location.

The cottage is a perfect place to stay while exploring the amazing sites volcano national park has to offer! The location is a 10 minute drive to the park entrance. The cottage is beautifully furnished, the bathroom is completely renovated and luxurious. There's free internet, Netflix, a well stocked fridge, and a large variety of tea and coffee. Oh and the hot tub was a great way to relax after a long day exploring. Overall my wife and I had a great stay our only regret, is that we didn't stay longer!

Lovely cottage, great for a short stay to visit Volcanoes National Park and the surroundings. The host was very welcoming, helpful and discreet. Would definitely come back and recommend it.

This is one of my favorite places to stay in the volcano area. Quiet, secluded and the cottage has been beautifully restored. I love taking long, slow meditative walks in the large, well maintained garden in the back. When I need to take a few days off from the hustle of Honolulu, this is one of my first choices.

There are no words to express the wonderful time we had in this cottage, which is just THE PERFECT PLACE to stay at on a visit to Big Island. Close to Volcanoes' National Park Entrance, the cottage is located in a marvelous garden and is really well-equipped (it includes all useful amenities such as an expresso coffee machine, a washing machine and a dryer, high-speed internet and TV, lots of DVD's, an outdoor spa, etc.). The atmosphere is warm and cosy (confortable bedrooms, spacious dining-room/living room, modern bathroom with shower and bath). Good quality breakfast items were supplied (fruit, jelly, honey, butter, milk, juices, cornflakes, sausages, home-made scones, different sorts of coffee and tea - of course, etc.). Bill and Antoinette were charming hosts, and appeared to be thoughtful and helpful when Iselle (a hurricane which turned into a tropical storm, something quite unusual in Hawaii) was making her way to Big Island. Even if it was just going to be a windy and stormy night with a lot of rain, they phoned us in the evening to see if everything was all right and came to see us in the morning to bring us some hot coffee and have a little chat around the fireplace. As frequent travelers, we therefore very strongly recommend Teapot Cottage which is little piece of heaven on earth, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Bill and Antoinette have set up an aesthetically beautiful cottage with all the amenities anyone could want. A combination of delicious homemade and purchased breakfast foods, teas and coffees; towel warmers in the bath; washer dryer and safe; impeccably clean; and the hot tub in the privacy of the rain forest garden was an incredibly romantic luxury. We enjoyed cooking our own dinners in the intimacy of the cottage kitchen. This lodging was a highlight of our trip around the big island!

We loved it. The Volcano Tea Cottage is every bit as picturesque as in the photo. With a charming layout and tastefully furnished (with some cupboards made by William himself, who is, among other things, a great carpenter) it was a welcome change from the big resort at the coast. The bath is right out of a glossy magazine. The whole place looked freshly painted, spic and span. It comes with breakfast for a football team. Even has a hot tub in the lush garden which we didn't have time to use. The attention to detail at the Volcano Tea Cottage is amazing. We rated dining outstanding because we enjoyed Bill's recommendation (Thai restaurant) very much. AND, we had good internet connections at no extra price. So even our teenage daughter was enchanted.....

We stayed here during our honeymoon and were beyond impressed. The owerners were so kind and provided everything that we needed. It was private and had its own hot tub which was really fun. The owners came while we were exploring the town and left new breakfast food and cleaned up a bit. We loved staying here and would highly reccommend it to anyone!

William & Antoinette Bullough
Bill is a cabinetmaker by trade whose work is also his hobby. He is always building whether it is for clients or restoring old buildings. Antoinette is a registered nurse by profession but her real passion is afternoon tea. When the cottage is not filled with visitors, she takes the occasion to offer tea parties and classes.
