    It would have been better if the National Park had been open, but there are several other things to do and places to see in the area.
    We liked the location and the lovely natural plantings. Garret and Sandy were welcoming and had many suggestions of places to visit. Sandy's fresh baked cake was delicious at breakfast. It was a stressful time for the people of Volcano Town due to the negative media coverage concerning the volcano activity. We had a great time and were glad we visited the area.

    Perfect!

    Cottage did not have WiFi, but we truly did not miss it, given the natural ambience of the garden cottage location.
    Excellent guest cottage, comfortable bed and amenities. Enjoyed the garden-like environment, quietness, and the delicious baked banana bread and breakfast fixings. Garret was an excellent host and friendly conversationalist who provided outstanding references for eating and insights about the Island and area attractions.

    Beautiful grounds; great location

    The only thing that didn't work very well is wifi. It was generally available, but it was very slow and service was often disconnected.
    The property is very well-located near the entrance to Volcanoes National Park and within walking distance of a great cafe and convenience store. The grounds are lovely and the owners accommodating. We loved that each unit is actually a stand-alone small house.

    Wonderful location!

    Wonderful location despite the Volcano Park was closed :-( House very clean and comfortable. Garrett and Sandy were excellent hosts, providing all sorts of useful advise and recommendations for places to go as an alternative to the volcano. To Sandy and Garret, Mahalo and hopefully see you again.

    Sandy and Garret were very helpful. They support you in any kind of questions. Garret is like the living Wikipedia in BigIsland :-) he knows nearly everything and can provide you useful recommendations over the whole island. Thanks for a wonderful stay at your village and your support

    My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in mid- May. Garret and Sandy are very welcoming hosts. The property exceeded our expectations - fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, living area and double bedroom all very clean, well designed and homely. The cottages are very quiet and peaceful. Homemade bread for breakfast - yum! Garret knows the area extremely well and was able to recommend plenty of us to enjoy, despite the volcanic national park being closed while we were there. Do not let the eruption and ongoing events put you off - this is still a great area to explore. Hilo, South Point and Mauna Kea are all easily accessible, with the other areas of the island of course accessible also if you don't mind a longer drive.

    A lovely and relaxing getaway in the heart of the Big Island.

    This property is an individual self-contained beautiful room/cottage, set in a vibrant garden. The location is right next (a mile or two) to the entrance for Volcanoes National Park. I was warmly greeted and given lots of good advice about park trails and where to est locally.

    Great staff but don’t book the two bedroom house.

    The flannel sheets need upgrading and so do the blankets. There’s mold all over the windows
    The staff here are amazing and have wonderful tips. The two bedroom cottage needs to be torn down and rebuilt. It really is very unpleasant to stay in. The price was way too high for what we got.

    Cosy and very clean cottages with heart warming and caring owners

    Amazingly cosy and clean little cottages surrounded by trees and a beautiful garden right next to Volcanoes National Park. Garret, who owns the premises together with his wife Sandy was very caring and everytime open to questions regarding activities etc. (Thank you Garret once more for your tips regarding the night visit at the crater, the amazing lava hike and that beatiful restaurant in Hilo you told us about!) The breakfast was very good with self-made banana bread every day! The best accomodation during our two weeks on the Hawaiian Islands!

    WLAN/Wifi only at the office.
    The best at this place is the location and the travel plans of the owner of the Volcano Country Cottages! The accommodation is quite and you feel like in the jungle. Don't forget warm clothes since it is situated at over 1000 meter over sea level. The trip plannings of the owner around Volcano are really nice, very well elaborated and absolutely personal. You just tell him what you want or ask for an idea and he provides you a plan! He knows all the best spots, will supply you with informations and will tell you your timetable for the day- eating time and where to get food included! Just follow his advices and you will have great time!!!
