Here are some pleasant reviews from our guests:
"Thank you for everything! We LOVED our stay :)" Ian & Emily
"We really enjoyed at our stay at your cottage. We both found it to be a comfortable and cozy place to relax in after a long day of exploring the volcano. We'd recommend your cottage to anyone (: Best Wishes" Liz & Rhys
"We had a wonderful stay - beautifully decorated,exceptionally clean and fully furnished with thoughtful touches. It was a little small for us and the stairs were difficult to carry our suitcases up. I would suggest an additional folding chair as we felt bad sitting on the bed for coffee and breakfast. For a short stay we thought it was cozy and would recommend it to anyone we know who is traveling." Gayle Alexander and Bob See
"Thank you so much for your warm welcome and hospitality. Mark & I loved stayed in "our" mountain cottage and the thoughtful touches of the papaya and muffins made it that much more special. All the best."
"Thank you so much for your hospitality. The cottage is so lovely and so nicely organized and arranged. It surpassed all of our expectations and we very much enjoyed our time here. Mahalo!"
"Thank you so much. We loved staying here and will surely pass it on."
"Thanks for your hospitality. I will recommend it to others."
"Thank you so much for renting us your cute cottage for 3 days. Thank you for letting use your washer & dryer after our wet hike. You have been a wonderfully hospitable host. Our 4th anniversary was something very special due to this retreat. We hope to see you again in the future"
"Thank you for the papaya and muffins. I enjoyed your cabin. It is very efficiently organized to maximize space. I had a good time in the park despite the rain and took a helicopter to see lava. I am sure I'll be back someday with my wife."
"Thanks for the wonderful stay and for the hospitality. We had a wonderful time exploring volcanoes national park with your home as our base!! Thank you"
"We had a wonderful time exploring your island. We did hike the Kilauea Iki trail and did some snorkeling in Punalu'u Beach. Thanks so much for letting us borrow the snorkels and shoes. If we're ever back to the island, we'll definitely stay here and refer this place to others."
"Just to say thanks for hosting us in your cozy, comfy cottage. The coffee and muffins were great and we had a nice quiet rest. If you find yourself in Vancouver Island, please call us and we will show you "our" corner of the world."...Read more

Perfect location for access to Volcanoes National park. The quality craftmanship and cosy decor of this cottage was even better than imagined. We loved the fresh fruit and muffins - it was like a Bed and Breakfast! This was very good value and we would highly recommend it to couples travelling in this area.

The location, room and affordability are great. The room was very cute. While small, it was very nicely decorated. Comfy bed. The bathroom did have some mold on the shower and the window. The muffins and fruit were a nice touch. The mini-kitchen was an asset. Beautiful, secluded place to star gaze.

Mt. Cottage was well located in Volcano Village -- quiet and a little secluded, but close enough to the part to be able to go back and forth throughout the day. The cottage is a suite over the garage, as shown in the picture, but is separated from the main house. It is well stocked with kitchen goodies and seems modern and clean. I'd definitely rent again.

Mountain cottage is a one room, cozy cottage in the middle of a rain forest - in the small city of Volcano, on the Big island of Hawaii. It was built by the homeowner, obviously with considerable love and care, it is a charming, comfortable and convenient place to plant yourselves (two of you at the most) for a short stay - on the outskirts of Volcano National Park. The surrounding rainforest is absolutely gorgeous, it is a very short drive to the park and a welcoming and comfortable place to come back to after a long day on the crest of the volcanoes. The homeowner lives next door and delivers fresh papaya and home made muffins in the morning. There is a small refrigerator, but no cooking space - so bring in some snacks and make your stay short. The city of Volcano has some interesting restaurants and an wonderful arty cafe - with a gourmet menu and a gift shop (gallery) with original works of local artists. All in all, Mountain cottage is a gem. Drawback - it's really small.
mountain cottage was a wonderful and pleasant surprise

This is indeed an adorably romantic mountain cottage. If you're spending most of your time at volcano, it's perfect for a single or a couple who like each other a lot. There is limited space. It's like living aboard a small boat, but everything you need is there and in a perfect setting.

A very cute cottage in the rain forest, close to the national park and other attractions for the adventurer. The cottage was small but perfect for two with a mini kitchen. Very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the muffins and papaya for breakfast. Thank you!

We absolutely loved this place. The owners did an excellent job with making their space seem cozy and welcoming - packed with great amenities. There were plenty of soft towels, a coffee maker, frig, microwave and tons of reading material. The owners left us muffins and papaya on the bench outside to welcome us to their place. We opened the windows and fell asleep to the sounds of the rain forest. Absolutely wonderful! We highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Volcano. Please note we stayed in the upstairs unit which had stairs that led to the door. It's not far from the restaurants (The Thai restaurant had great food BTW).

We went around the big island staying at various overnight accommodations after each day's adventure. the mountain cottage was definitely 5 stars! reminding us of Coconut Island located in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu Island. Checkin was stress-free! Ray took a walk before sunrise the next day n loved the 'anu and uhiwai he experienced along the way. Dot loved the coziness n charm of the cottage, especially the view of amazing hapu'u fern like trees that were as tall as the 2nd floor cottage with beautiful shade-loving tropical flowers growing beneath them! we definitely would love to stay there again n again. We're still talking about this place to friends n family.

We met the builder who is the owner of a home on the same property and who built this cottage. It was extremely well designed with efficient use of space and my wife and I were both so impressed we came away with several notes about how the space was so efficiently used. It is in a quiet, relaxed area a short drive from Volcano National park. Definitely recommend it!

This place is great! Upon arrival we found our breakfast for the next morning, papaya and muffins, a clean apartment, and a very nice bathroom. It was perfect! Great price and it comes with everything Wifi, cable, toiletries. We've already recommended this to our friends!

The "Mountain Cottage" was a really nice room to stay in. It was cozy and clean, but still had space to walk around. Had a sink and microwave as well as plenty of storage! Bathroom and room were clean with views of the rain forest. Owner, James W., was a nice person who provided us with fresh cut Hawaiian papaya and little cupcakes for breakfast the next morning.

Cozy, cozy, cozy! We had an amazing time at the Mountain Cottage. After hiking in the park and eating a delicious dinner at the Keawe Kitchen, we headed back to our fire-lit cozy cottage and listened to the thunder break above the rainforest, which surrounds the cottage! In the morning we had an amazing spread of fresh fruit, muffins and coffee. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this place for any couple looking for a romantic and cozy get away!

Incredible use of a small space. Loved it. Would have liked to have salt and pepper in the kitchen area. Please inform people ahead of time to bring potable water along. Peaceful, beautiful, and restful room. Thanks so much for the wonderful experience!

This place is great! I wish I could live here. It is perfect and the host even brought me muffins and fruit for breakfast. It is such a cozy place to be when it rains as it does a lot in Volcano. I highly recommend it. You will love your stay here!

We stayed there for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. The cottage was very close to the Volcano State Park, and close to Volcano Village where there are some nice little restaurants. They had all the basic amenities (towels, small fridge, microwave), would have been nice to have a hair dryer too. But I'm sure the owner would have provided it to us if we had asked. The owner greeted us when we got there and provided us with some great info about the area. The cottage was pretty clean; however, we had some bugs at night (which I would think is common since we were pretty out in the wild). The place smelled a little moldy/wet esp. if the windows were closed when it was chilly at night. But once we opened the windows to air it out a bit, it got better. Try to get there before it gets dark or else it might be slightly hard to find without a gps. Overall, it was a pretty comfortable stay and we would definitely come back if we're in the area again!

We spent 3 nights at Mountain Cottage while we hiked the trails in Volcanoes National Park during the days. The cottage is very well maintained and the owner was very friendly and helpful. The service could be best described as bed & breakfast. There is not really a kitchen in the cottage, just a small fridge and microwave. The owner, however provided us with fresh fruit, muffins and coffee which was a satisfying breakfast. We found the restaurants in Volcano to be very good for dinner. The cottage is quite small, comfortable for a couple but would be cramped for more people.

We had a great stay at the Mountain Cottage. The owner is really welcoming and leaves fresh papaya and muffins each evening for a delicious breakfast the next day. The cottage had everything we needed and then some... very comfortable bed, tv with lots of channels (for the chilly, rainy evenings in!), little wood fire (for those same evenings!), a little kitchen stocked with some goodies from the owner (soda, bottled water, coffee, tea, fresh fruit) and a lovely bathroom. Great stay - we would strongly recommend it!

...not a cottage at all. And, it's located atop a garage. You have to climb a steep, narrow stairway to get there. It is cute/quaint, nice colors throughout. But, the shower is very tiny! Good luck finding it at night, in the dark, cold, wet, fog of Volcano village. I think a proper rate for this room (it is not a cottage) shouldn't be more than $85/night, not the $115 that I paid.

Mountain Cottage in Volcano is the perfect rental for couples. Directions are easy to follow. Grounds are nicely kempt with gated parking. For a small space the cottage has all the amenities. Lovely bathroom, coffee maker, fridge, fire place and comfortable bed. Nicely decorated and very clean. I would recommend this place to family and friends.
