My wife and I chose the Hiaku room for our honeymoon stay in Hawaii. I was not disappointed in the least! For a complete review see my post at : http://www.aaronmulderphotography.com/single-post/2016/10/12/at-the-craters-edge-hawaii


Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

Beautiful room, large bathroom with heated floor, working fireplace, fresh fruit and banana nut bread in the room. Very environmentally conscious. Close to Volcano National Park and both black and green sand beaches.


Absolutely Gorgeous!

My wife and I stayed At the Craters Edge for the middle part of our honeymoon. The room and the view of the surrounding rain forest were absolutely phenomenal and was an excellent launching point for trips to Volcano National Park and Hilo. Definitely recommend!

Wonderful room, amenities and food. Room wide open to outside. May not suit you if you want more privacy but absolutely beautiful.


Lovely room in a beautiful setting

3.8 on December 14, 2015

The room was surrounded by beautiful trees and other vegetation; this in combination with multiple large windows gave us the feeling of being in a jungle. The furnishings were high quality, the bathroom was outstanding, and the items provided for breakfast and snacking were ample and healthy (especially the generous bowl of fresh fruit). Internet access was acceptable given the isolated setting.


Self Service

Lovely setting, nicely furnished room, romantic fireplace ... very peaceful. We did enjoy our stay here despite the very low water pressure and inconsistent water temperature of the shower. Also the mattress seemed a bit saggy... and it would have been nice if someone could have greeted us when we arrived, rather than having to call the owner to find out how to access our room. There aren't any drawers to unpack and very little room to hang things up, so be prepared to live out of your suitcase. Breakfast is self serve from cereal boxes, oatmeal packages and a beautiful basket of fresh fruit in the room. This is a great location for visiting Volcano National Park. Onsite property manager was very nice and helpful.


Great place to stay.

Beautiful, lush surroundings. The hot tub was nice to enjoy after a day's drive. Location is convenient to Volcano and the park. Snacks, coffee, and other beverages were a nice touch. Only negatives, over doing it with air fresheners, and the neighbor's have barking dogs.


Immersed in the Rain Forest

4.0 on December 17, 2014

We loved our stay At The Crater's Edge. We had a beautiful room looking into a picture-perfect rain forest and were treated to the sounds if rain on the roof each morning. The room had a fireplace and a great selection of breakfast and snacking items. We enjoyed a good soak in the outdoor jacuzzi after our hike into the caldera. I look forward to my next visit to The Big Island and would definitely like to stay here again.


Lovely B&B
