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.

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!

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.

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 !

We stayed two nights at the teapot cottage. Before we even arrived our hosts had posted a pack of information in the mail to us in Australia with information on the big island and volcanoes national park. Instructions to get to the cottage was also there. The cottage was so easy to find and checking in was stress free. Our host met us shortly after to make sure we had arrived ok and was bearing sweets, the most delicious cheesecake ever! The house was so clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed too and looks just like the pictures. We also used the hot tub which was a lovely addition to relax. The cottage is close to town and some restaurants and only a few minutes from the national park. Our host was full of useful information and recommended great hikes and other information for the next part of our trip. Great stay and would highly recommend!

We loved to be at the Volcao Teapot Cottage. It is such a lovely place and the host is very kind. The kitchen is well equiped and for the breakfast we got a lot of food. We can really recommend this cottage.

My husband and I stayed in this cottage for three nights in April. The location is excellent for spending your days in Volcano National Park and the cottage is a very tranquil, private, and relaxing place to for the evenings. Everything within is so well thought out; books, magazines, coffee, teas, scarves, umbrellas, robes, slippers. Fresh breakfast items in the refrigerator every morning. We felt well cared for and pampered! Highly recommend the Volcano Teapot Cottage.

We spent two amazing nights at the Teapot while visiting Volcanoes National Park. The location is super convenient to the park entrance which makes those late night and early morning visits to the caldera very easy. Upon arrival we were greeted by Bill to discuss the cottage and details about hotspots and hikes inside the park. Attention to detail is on full display including the interior flourishes done by Bill himself who was a career cabinet maker and has been loving on the place since the 80's. Fully functional kitchen with great coffee and an awesome selection of tea. Probably the single nicest bathroom ever with both a shower and an incredible claw foot tub opposite two double doors which open to a true rainforest. In that rainforest, a short distance from the cottage, the hot tub gazebo which is perfect on those chilly, rainy Volcano nights.The walking paths through well maintained Hawaiian vegetation. It's truly inspirational to see what can come from love and attention on a property over time. Thank you Bill and Antoinette for providing for such a great end to our Hawaiian vacation. We will be back!

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.
