“Fantastic little place! Super unique and nice. Great space with back porch, little outdoor fireplace, and lofted sleeping space. Tons of small touches to make it seem cute compared to other more basic lodging available nearby. Had a dehumidifier too which helped to keep the stickiness at bay and several heaters to help cut the cold which Volcano can have in the evenings. 100% would stay here again. Slightly out of the way in town, but only about 5-6 minutes to the park and 2-3 minutes from most things in volcano.”
Laukapu Forest Cottage (LFC) is a spacious studio, vacation-rental cottage, a handcrafted "Work of Heart". LFC has a well-equipped kitchen and a private bathroom, with a tiled shower. Watch digital-cable TV or connect to the smart TV, make local calls on the phone, and enjoy high-speed Wi-Fi. The entry porch is approached from the 70-foot-/21-meter-long covered “Walkway of the 1,000 Peaces". LFC was designed and built for two adult guests and not for any additional adults or children.
“We had a fabulous stay at Kathryn's Laukapu Forest Cottage. It is located in close proximity to "downtown" Volcano. The cottage itself is a beautifully built structure set in a temperate rainforest. A lovely covered walk leads one to the cottage and will shelter you and your belongings from the elements, as rain is frequent in this part of the island. The cottage is conveniently furnished, being remarkably well equipped and comfortable for two. While small, the kitchen contains good appliances and the accouterments necessary should meal preparation be in your plans. The living area is well designed and crafted. The photographs here on AirBNB show a beautiful place, but still the online pictures of the cottage don't fully portray the quality and beauty of this unit. It is truly stunning. The bathroom is also relatively small but it has everything one needs and is very well put together. The bathroom and the rest of the cottage are immaculately clean. The cottage is tastefully decorated, using art from local artists and artisans. Kathryn is a gracious and friendly host. She is a near lifelong resident of Hawaii, who loves her home state and Volcano, in particular. She is able to provide expert advice on visiting the National Park. She also gave us good advice on local restaurants. Kathryn is eager to make you comfortably at home in the cottage, all the while respecting the privacy of her guests. We highly recommend Laukapu Forest Cottage. ”

Built at tree level, our loft greets you with rainforest views and natural light pouring through large windows throughout the newly built custom home with modern comforts.
“Lisa's loft was a perfect space for us to be for a week. It is visually open, spacious, super comfortable, quiet and very private. We settled in very quickly to the pace of life there. I loved sitting on the lanai listening to the rain one afternoon. When a couple of storms came through at night we found the fireplace was very handy - and romantic. We rented bicycles for a few days which was easy access to Volcano National Park. We had several pleasant rides and explored the neighbourhoods on either side of the highway. The kitchen is well equipped so cooking is pretty easy - if you are used to cooking at sea level just remember to make adjustments when cooking at altitude. The eclectic record collection covered almost all the genres we listen to! We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to anyone.”
