Hawaii as it is meant to be

This is our fourth time to stay at the Teapot cottage. It is a stand alone old plantation house that is stocked with breakfast items, teas, and coffees. There are several restaurants near by but it is limited. A great gazebo with jacuzzi is nestled in the rainforest. It is only 10 minutes to drive to Volcano National Park. Great hikes abound. Stay several days to get the full effect, even in bad weather it is wonderful.

Absolutely charming and relaxing!

This is the second time we've been to the Volcano Teapot Cottage, and we can't wait to visit again. We feel nothing but relaxed in the coziness of this cottage and the beautiful grounds. The cottage is spotlessly clean (a big issue with me), quiet, and well stocked with items to make your stay easy and comfortable. Breakfast is bountiful, with the owners providing a variety of items from to-die-for homemade pastries to sausage and eggs, which you can prepare at your leisure. Even though the cottage is on a small road close to Volcano, it is surrounded by vegetation and very private. We didn’t see or hear a single neighbor while we were there. The owners were very thoughtful in remodeling the original home. Not only is the large front porch perfect for breakfast in the morning come rain or shine, but the bathroom has been nicely updated with quality fixtures and shower, a beautiful claw foot tub, and French doors that open out to the garden. As other reviewers have stated, the pictures really don't do the place justice! This year, we added an additional day to our stay, and we already decided that the next time we visit we will add another day still. It is so easy to tour the area from here and at the same time to truly relax.

Just OMG

A dream come true, There were no negatives only positives! Since it was January the weather was on the colder side, the fireplace and bed warmers were terrific. Peaceful, quiet, and incomparable! The owner is so knowledgeable and helpful with where to go, what to do, and where to eat. The kitchen is fully stocked and yummy treats were plentiful and delicious. The property is beautiful.

Best Place on the Island!

what better way to experience the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park then to come home (it really felt like our own slice of heaven) after hiking all day and soaking in your own hot tub off a beautiful trail outside your door?! I wish we had stayed longer. Bill and Antoinette really thought of everything you could possibly need. There are even trails on the property where they put out beautiful teal pots so you never feel lost! Bill sat down with us and answered all of our questions about the park and gave us great suggestions. He even went out of his way to mail us box some things that we had left, at no charge. They really stock the kitchen with some tasty home made treats and we loved eating breakfast on the porch looking at the beautiful garden every morning. We had the best time and hope to go back in the future!

This November 2016 was our 4th or 5th stay at Teapot. Each time I wish we had planned even more days there. It is like a vacation within a vacation. The hot tub is great at the end of a day at the volcano. The cottage has all those little touches I rarely see at other places. Carol M

Great Nature Getaway

5 on October 13, 2016

The Volcano Teapot Cottage exceeded our expectations for a romantic 30 year Anniversary Getaway. The host was warm and welcoming with good advice regarding the area and all it had to offer. The Cottage was cozy and comfortable and had any amenity one could ask for. The Teapot lived up to its name for an exceptional Continental Breakfast with numerous teas, coffees and accoutrements including fresh fruits and delicious fresh baked goods. If you need to eat gluten free, there are numerous choices offered. The owners were awesome hosts, the Nene were there to offer us a very welcoming Aloha and the grounds were so lush and beautiful. All and all, a very special place. Be sure to allow plenty of time to take in all of the beautiful nature that this area has to offer. Thank you Bill and Antionette for a wonderful stay!!
