Tropical Couples Retreat

5 on May 15, 2018

We stayed at this delightful, private cottage for 3 nights (Apr 25-27/18). The property is beautiful.... your very own tropical oasis tucked in the rainforest, and just a stone's throw from Hawaii Volcanos National Park. The separate pavilion which houses a hot tub, just steps from the cottage, is a great way to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing. The hosts, Bill and Antoinette, are very accommodating and helpful. They have truly anticipated everything visiting guests could need or want (including baked goodies made available each day!). The fridge is well stocked with many nutritious items, enabling guests to prepare a healthy breakfast for themselves each morning. The cozy cottage is a place we would look forward to getting back to each day. On cooler evenings, we would switch on the propane fireplace, put on some music and just relax.... perfect! We would encourage other guests to experience the unique charm of this getaway cottage for 2, located in a private and lush tropical setting. Like many previous visitors, you will only wish you could have stayed longer! J & S, Canada

Great Couples Retreat!

This cozy cottage for 2 sits in a beautiful (and private) tropical setting, next door to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. As mentioned in other reviews, the hosts for this property are amazing, and go out of their way to ensure you have the best possible stay. We had 3 nights at the cottage (Apr 25-28/18) and loved every minute of it. At the end of each day we looked forward to returning to the property, to relax and enjoy all the provided amenities (and treats!). The pavilion with the hot tub ..... just a few steps away from the cottage, was an outstanding addition to this property. The setting was indeed magical! My wife and I would rate this property as outstanding, and would encourage others to book this property and find out for themselves just what a gem it is!

OMG what a find

Just lovely. Bill was wonderful and helpful in planning our days. We started each day with a great breakfast of fresh fruit, pastries, eggs, meats etc. just fantastic. At the end of each day we used the hot tub and then slept like babies. I can not recommend this place any higher. It was great.

Can't recommend this place highly enough.

The owners have thought of everything. Anything you could need is right there, from Q-tips to robes. Bill came by shortly after our arrival to tell us everything we needed to know about how to take best advantage of our time. The refrigerator was loaded with wonderful breakfast items. The cottage is spacious for 2 people, and the property is lovely. We saw pheasants crossing the property on a number of occasions. The hot tub is a short stroll down a path and is private and very nice. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

A great place for relaxation

This is an awesome cottage with great history and beautiful grounds with lots of privacy. The refrigerator is well stocked with everything you could think of for breakfast and the homemade daily pastries are amazing. Although it rained (heavily) everyday while we were here we still enjoyed our stay immensely. Umbrellas are provided as well as a back pack/binoculars if needed. There is an awesome hot tub to soak the cold away at the end of a rainy day. Bill was so generous to come over the first day and give us pointers on how to spend our time. I would highly recommend reservations at the Lodge for dinner.

A Gem in the Jungle

This is the perfect getaway for folks seeking a more secluded environment. The cottage is set amongst acreage of beautiful flowers, trees, bamboo and ferns. Exploring the fairy like path is a highlight since there are little surprises tucked away in floral niches. The breakfasts magically appear while you are out and about during the day and is always fresh and delicious. My favorite is the half a mango with lime and an array of pastries. Tea Pot Cottage is very close to Volcano National Park, so explore all day and the soak in the private hot tub at night. It's quite a treat. We adored the tea pot motif of the cottage. What a attention to detail! We loved the art so much that we bought a piece for ourselves at One Art Gallery in VNP. Thank you very much Bill for all the info!

Another Wonderful Stay

Whenever my wife and I are on the Big Island we make it a point to stay at the Volcano Teapot Cottage for part of our vacation because of the charm of the property and especially the friendliness of Bill and Antoinette. Great location to enjoy the beauty of that part of the island...the hot tub gazebo is the BEST on cool Volcano nights!! Mike and Kathy

Absolutely perfect!

This is our second time here and we enjoyed ourselves just as much as the first time. We love being so close to the national park and explored more each day we were there. As for the cottage and grounds, the owners pay attention to every detail. The breakfast foods that are brought in each morning are wonderful! Everything is clean and comfy. The hot tub is a delight in a private setting that is just beautiful. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

Amazing stay

We stayed at the Volcano Teapot cottage for two evenings. Even though we encountered rain we thoroughly enjoyed the cottage and the surrounding area. The cottage has been meticulously restored and maintained by Bill. They anticipate your every need and whim with more than ample supplies in the fridge as well as the largest selection of coffees and teas I have ever encountered.. Do not pass up utilizing the hot tub in the evenings to truly enjoy and get in tune with the natural surroundings.
