The Teapot Cottage is fantastic! The grounds are well maintained. The house is immaculate and extremely comfortable with all the necessary elements for a fun stay. The owners are friendly, accessible and helpful. The tea, coffee and breakfast items are delicious and plentiful. Would return anytime!

We stayed at the Volcano Teapot Cottage for two nights and upon arrival, we wished we had booked a few more nights. In fact, I longed for the Cottage during the rest of our stay at a resort in Waikoloa. No detail was spared and it was the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. The grounds were immaculate and Bill and Antoinette added nice touches, like pastries, fruit, yogurt, etc. I am a very picky traveler and rarely give five stars across the board. The Volcano Teapot Cottage is the exception. Look no further if you're planning a trip to Volcanoes National Park.

A little piece of old Hawaii, that has become harder and harder to find. This is a lovely and exquisitely maintained property. The house is comfortable, clean and very charming. The kitchen and fridge are amazingly well stocked. The gardens are enchanting and lovely to wander in; and it is just minutes from the Volcanoes National Park. The hosts are extremely hospitable, communicate quickly and thoroughly and are very friendly and helpful. Overall, this is the model vacation rental and B&B -- your every need has been anticipated and planned for.

Bill and Antoinette have created a labor of love. Camellias in full bloom, birds in the garden, a private hot tub for your enjoyment. And how about those cinnamon rolls that Bill delivers along with homemade lemon loaf to accompany the vast array of teas and coffees in the kitchen? Choose a teapot and sit on the porch as you plan your hike to Volcanoes National Park just a few minutes away. Try the Ohelo Restaurant just down the street for delicious baby back ribs, wood fired pizza and breath-taking desserts. There is romance in the air at this cozy cottage. We hope to return soon! Especially recommended for honeymooners or those who wish they were honeymooners.

Everything in the cottage was perfect and well thought out for guests. Bill was very helpful with great suggestions and had sent us a lot of brochures/information prior to the trip as well. It was wonderful to have breakfast provided (the baked goods were a highlight). It was secluded, quiet and very close to Volcanoes National Park - exactly what we were looking for. Home away from home!

We stayed at the Teapot Cottage for 3 nights and it was the best! Bill met us shortly after our arrival and answered our questions. He also gave us very helpful information about how best to see Kilauea's action. The cottage is beautifully appointed with teapots and teas, wonderful art work, and detail to everything. The hot tub and property with it's paths is beautifully cared for. The setting is quiet and secluded. You will not be disappointed if you stay here! We will go back! There is no onsite dining, but there are choices of places to eat in Volcano. The owners stock the refrigerator with lots of breakfast foods. Yum!

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.

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.

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.

William & Antoinette Bullough
Bill is a cabinetmaker by trade whose work is also his hobby. He is always building whether it is for clients or restoring old buildings. Antoinette is a registered nurse by profession but her real passion is afternoon tea. When the cottage is not filled with visitors, she takes the occasion to offer tea parties and classes.
