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.
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.
Though it was a bit of a trek to find the house, we really were surprised at how peaceful and beautiful it was. The garden was lush and the amenities were the best. This was the highlight if our visit to the Big Island.
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.
Absolutely beautiful place to stay! You can see the falls from a few rooms, but hear them all night long, which was a relaxing way to rest. Some may find the loud noise uncomfortable, but we loved the sound! There is a beautiful walking path down to the bottom of the falls with groves of various bamboo along the way; this can get slippery and muddy though if it has just rained, so watch your step,but don't pass it by. Staff very attentive to needs; had a hearty, great breakfast. Would definately stay here again; one of the highlights of our time on the Big Island!
