Peaceful, zen-like, and one of a kind.

Sitting in the rainforest just outside the national park is THE BEST single B&B. A one bedroom cottage with large overhangs which enable us to sit outside and listen to the rain and see the breathtaking flowers and foliage. The hosts thought of everything we needed for our stay: umbrellas, flashlights for walking at night at the volcano, and even bikes if wanted. The only and I mean only drawback is the lack of area dining options. If you wish to cook, their kitchen is fully equipped. It has both an indoor and outdoor shower with a beautiful hot tub area. I would go back in a heartbeat.

beautiful bit of heaven

We stayed for four nights. I guess this is a little unusual but it's a nice area and we like to take our time. The cabin is at the end of a street just a few minutes from the town of Volcano proper and the National Park. We were completely enamored with the way it was put together, the design and condition of the place. Very nice. Very classy and tasteful. The kitchen was pretty much completely heaven sent. We stocked up on groceries at the coast and would have bought even more if we knew there were so many basics already in the kitchen like olive oil, condiments, spices, even some milk and butter in our case. We didn't turn on the TV but it's nice to know it's there and that at one of the general stores in town they have a huge selection of DVD's, just in case. The Thai place in town is definitely worth trying. A few areas for improvement: I found the bed too soft for my back. And due to the size of the bedroom, they cannot fit a king size bed in there, which we really missed. Felt sort of like we were rolling into the center of the bed all night, which was not totally comfortable. Love the outdoor shower and the spa. Don't forget to bring some flip-flops for using the spa, since you have to walk on some rocky steps to get to it. All in all, we liked it so much we want to build one just like it for ourselves! We'd probably make the bedroom a little larger to accommodate a bed of the size we like, but it's a really nice design and layout and we were very pleased. Sure, it costs a bit more than other rentals, but it is really top notch!

Great Hideaway

This is a big place for a one bedroom cottage. It is well set up - like a home - and the owners take a lot of pride in the place. It does feel isolated and my wife was a little worried about all the noise - a bit like camping!

A little bit of heaven...

The cottage is very secluded and private. It has everything you could possibly need. The setting is just beautiful. The rainforest is right outside your doorstep! We didn't dine out very often as we really just enjoyed the place we were in!

Awesome place highly recommend.

This place is just totally charming and as good as it looks in the photos. Amazingly relaxing and lots of extras (oils and spices in the kitchen, even some staples). I was concerned about the winter weather but it was actually really nice except for one day. Even if it had been rainy, it would have been wonderful. And the two trek bikes were so much fun! One tip - buy enough meat for the week and freeze some. the grocery stores in the area are really pretty bad - nice people, just limited choices.

Volcano Mist Cottage sits in the middle of its own little paradise. We had a great time, would recommend it to all of our friends and family and will hopefully make it back.

A Magical Stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Volcano Mist Cottage! It was heavenly with all the amenities one could hope for...plus our very own rain forest! Will definitely come back!

Four Wonderful Days in Volcano Park Rain Forest

5 on February 27, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at Volcano Mist Cottage. It suited us perfectly - an oasis to return to each afternon, after hours of hiking on amazing volcanic landscapes. We thought we would explore some of the local eateries, but after our coffee hour in the hot tub and wine/cheese on the veranda, we cooked in and loved every minute.

A Special Treat

5 on February 26, 2014

Volcano Mist Cottage provides a very special and comfortable stay in the midst of the native Ohi`a and Fern rainforest. Every detail in the cottage is carefully accounted for, from the sumptuous bed and bedding, to the artwork on the walls, to the locally made English Muffins and lilikoi butter. The cottage provides a wonderful retreat, with the sound of native bird song in the morning, and the fun and activity of Volcano National Park only minutes away.
