Beautiful place to stay in Volcano. Nice furnishings, wonderful hospitality. Delicious fresh breakfast foods, we wanted for nothing. Super clean and private despite all around windows. Recommend for couples!

We had a short but amazing stay At The Crater's Edge. We chose the Haiku Garden suite - wow. It really felt like we were perched on the edge of the rainforest with windows and a balcony all around. The rain put us to sleep each night and we took advantage of the hot tub, too! Loved the touch of...

At the Craters Edge is in the beautiful rainforest of Volcano. Access to the national park and the town of Volcano is minutes away. The room has facilities to enable you to enjoy breakfast in your own time in the mornings the banana bread is fantastic. Remember this is in the rainforest so it rains bring your rain jacket but...

Had a lovely few days using this as our base to explore southern part of The Big Island. Found it easily in the dark with sat nav, Very well equipped room with lovely bathroom and pretty surroundings. Comfortable bed, good wifi signal. Lovely fresh fruit, cake and a well stocked cupboard of breakfasts, snacks and drinks. Coffee machine and microwave....

I'm going to start with a word of caution. No doubt most will be driving don't trust your satnav ours got us nearly there but not quite and the property isn't the easiest to find. If your arriving after dark and the mist is down youve got no chance so plan to arrive in daylight. From the main road (11)...

Tucked away in Volcano, HI. Beautiful room tucked away with views of the rainforest. Very private and perfect for couples. We stayed 7 nights and our host Jason made sure everything in our room was restocked every other day. He doesn't make the bed or clean the room but that was just fine. He emptied they trash and restocked the...

This place is very nice, and makes a great first impression. However after being there a few hours you notice that the shower leaks a little, the bathroom door doesn't really close and probably isn't very secure. The doors only lock from an electronic combination lock. A potential thief could just look at which numbers that are worn away and...

Stayed for 3 nights.It was such a great location for the volcanos , but was also a great sanctuary of restfullness.Wasnt too bothered about the breakfast issue as we are not really breakfast people but have to comment that Jason's banana bread was the best ive ever tasted. The place is spotless and attention to detail beyond any hotel ive...

Fantastic place. Great location close to the Volcano NP. The accommodation is surrounded by greenery so is quiet & private. You will need an eye mask to sleep beyond sunrise though as there are only net curtains. Not a traditional B&B as you're left alone & breakfast is a do-it-yourself affair as they don't have a commercial kitchen licence -...

Based on other tripadvisor comments, we selected this B&B as a treat experience for our recent Hawaiian vacation. It wasn't a cheap location even by Hawaiian standards. We had stayed in B&B's countless times in locations across the continental US and in Europe so know what it takes to make a great B&B. This one failed - although our room...

We are so sorry your stay was less than expected. As property owners we market in different venues and many are third party so we don't always have complete control of the information out there.When people book direct they get more explicit details and check in information. On our direct website www.visitthevolcano.com you will notice that we are not defining...

“Only two rooms, Haiku was more private.”

“Although Haiku Garden and Nahelelani rooms are outfitted virtually identical, the Haiku Garden room is slightly more private as it faces away from the entrance / driveway, so others staying on property won't pass by your windows.”

“No pool. Just an amazing jacuzzi in a jungle setting.”
Laurabelle927, 17 Apr 2014 | Read review
“the 2 back to back rooms we saw were either facing the entry or the hot tub. If you are alone on the property, the hottub location feels more private. Good info about the island and volcano park is provided, have dinner at the Volcano House and view the glowing crater in the dark afterwards, but try to get back in time to use the hottub.”

“The Nahelani is very nice and faces the driveway, and the Haiku faces the path to and from the jacuzzi. The other room with the kitchen is currently occupied by the caretakers Jay and Jason.”
