James' place is PHENOMENAL! My husband and I stayed here for 2 days while we visited Volcanoes National Park. The cottage is absolutely perfect - completely outfitted with everything you need to feel at home in the middle of nowhere :). The cottage is an easy 5-10 minute drive from the National Park and there are a few restaurants in the Volcano area (about 5 minutes drive). If you are planning on cooking for yourself, make sure you stock up on cooking supplies in either Kona or Hilo as there are no "grocery stores" within about an hour's drive (there are small bodegas with limited selection but we were told the locals get their supplies in these two larger towns.) That said, the kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils and necessities like pots/pans/spices, etc. The one downside of the apartment was that the internet was rather slow. Normally this wouldn't be an issue on vacation, but being away for so long, my husband and I really needed to get work done which was a little difficult while staying here. The best surprise was finding there was a washer and dryer IN the cottage. SO wonderful when you've been on the road a while! Check in was super easy and James was great at communicating. He was also very generous to myself and my husband as we were celebrating our anniversary while we were away :). Overall we had a fantastic time at the cottage and would absolute stay here again if/when we find ourselves on the Big Island. Thank you, James!

A very secluded and private place in the forest, conveniently close to volcanoes national park. Beautiful garden and very quiet, all you hear is the nightly frog concert!

James's place was just right for our trip to Volcanoes. Comfortable and clean, this cottage was well equipped, with a grill, plus a washer and dryer for washing your hiking clothes. The fireplace heater helped warm us when the mornings were chilly. Photos were accurate, and communication was easy. I would recommend.

Perfect location to spend a few days at Volcano National Park. Great cottage feel with jungle privacy. Kids loved the loft bedroom, I appreciated the BBQ and we all enjoyed our stay.

The house was terrific for our one night stay. Loved the beautiful plants and landscaping surrounding the house. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We traveled from the west coast, to visit Volcanoes National Park, and needed accommodations for 5; two adults and 3 young adults/teenagers. There was a cool breeze at night, and didn't need any air conditioning or heat. Perfect temperature for August. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. I was told the futon was very comfortable, as well. We didn't need most of the things that this house comes with, since we only stayed one night, but everything is there; tv, wifi, washer/dryer, refrigerator (stocked with condiments), fully equipped kitchen, fire pit, all the blankets, sheets, pillows and towels you'd need, and numerous options of shampoos/body lotions/sunscreen, hair dryer and first aid kit. Volcanoes National Park is only 10 minutes away, so it is the perfect location for anyone wanting to visit that side of the island.

Generally enjoyed our stay. The only negative the so called second bedroom. The description mentioned it has lower ceiling but I would never imagine a person has to crawl to get to the bed. My daughter is 5"2 and she couldn't sit on her bed. This place is strictly just for sleeping. The master bedroom is totally adequate so for a couple this place is excellent. The solar room is beautiful feels like you in the middle of tropical forest. Very close and convenient to volcano National Park.
