After more than a week in hotels having an actual cottage with a fully stocked kitchen and spacious bathroom was such a relief. It's very convenient to Hawaii Volcano National Park and the town of Volcano. The owners, Bob and Bonnie, were extremely welcoming and warm. There's free WiFi and a washer dryer, which was a lifesaver. All toiletries that you either forgot to take or couldn't take. The kitchen has every type of breakfast imaginable, including cereals, eggs, fresh fruit, milk, coffee, tea, orange juice.
This area of Hawaii can be cold and rainy. The Cottage has an assortment of sweaters and jackets to borrow.
Don't buy any supplies before you see the place. It's probably already there.
Mum and I stayed in the Africa Room for two nights while we were visiting the volcanoes national park. The common room was very comfortable and clean - I sat out here and used the computer and the sound of the pond water feature was very relaxing. It was also very well appointed with boardgames and comfortable chairs and tea and coffee facilities. The room itself was unique and is one of the hotels that stands out in my mind from my trip. The outdoor lanai with kitchen facilities was great. Very close to local resturants and quiet during the night. Loved the town of Volcano and can't wait to come back here again. I'd definitely stay at Chalet again.
For the Traveler who is looking for privacy, a location off the beaten track, and surrounded by nature. Artistically furnished and designed. Well-priced. Lots of space for this one-bedroom guest cottage. A donkey (fenced in), rabbits (with a large enclosed habitat) and a hen (who has her run of the place and is tame) provide company. A continental breakfast is also provided, a plus. An experience unlike any other. Make sure to arrive during the day (i.e. while the sun provides light) so that you can find this place, as it is located on a gravel road with no lighting. Truly rustic!
we stayed in a bungalow, just me and wife, very nice setting, screen window with cortines, bathroom was a little small to shower but did it's purpose... we had a small fridge that fit all our small groceries and drinks.
very nice pool/jacuzzi area, keep in mind it's a clothing optional... which we loved!
health food, tons of yoga and meditation classes... fruit-trees around
wifi on most of resort, our bungalow had a weak signal but it was enough to keep up with email.
This Inn has it all. A beautiful drive thru local farms to get there, approx 15 min. From Hilo. A magnificent property with a waterfall, which lulls you to sleep. The inn is organized for people who love B & B's, but cherish their privacy. Our room had everything we wanted, king bed, tv,Internet, and even a welcoming small basket of fruit and macadamia nuts. The property has two trails which you can use and you can go for a swim in the pond at the base of the falls. Finally,the breakfast is the best we had on the island. It has just about everything you may want to eat
I should also add that the hosts invited all their guests to join their friends and family, free of charge for Thanksgiving dinner. We did not know this when we booked. It was a first for them,and we could all see all the work required to pull this off. It was a total success and the food was so delicious. Thank you for such a generous offer.
