Newly built, architect designed timber and glass deck house tucked into a magical forest of giant tree ferns, and wild orchids. The luxury you'd expect at a resort hotel but more like a private vacation rental. Forest hot tub and fireplaces. Rooms stocked with tropical fruit bowl, coffee, teas and a baked bread to enjoy at your own leisure and schedule.Only one mile to the entrance of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and near a famous black sand beach.

We had a lovely stay At the Craters Edge. Our host was extremely friendly and helpful. the Haiku Garden was very private and we loved using the rain forest spa.

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon, and it was absolutely fabulous! Wish we had another night there. Such wonderful hospitality and ambience.

We really enjoyed our two nights at The Craters Edge. The room was wonderful with very nice upscale touches. The location was great-close to the village and volcano. The owners were great and had great “tourist tips”. Would definitely stay here again!!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
