    Cary L from La Mirada, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great Christmas and New Years Eve at Volcano Kahaualea Cottage. The Christmas gift basket was great, the cottage was neat and tidy. The staff was courteous and helpful. we loved having the washer, dryer unit to do our laundry so we had one less thing to do after an overnight flight home.
    To have such wonderful peace and quiet made the stay very relaxing. The view of the forest in every direction was breath taking. The location is great for visiting the Hilo area and Volcano National Park.

    Go and have a great stay!

    Lenny M from Kihei, HI recommends this vacation rental

    Absolutely fantastic place! Exactly as pictured. The kitchenware was not clean and we had to wash everything prior to using it. That was the only negative of our two days there. If that could be addressed, we would certainly stay again. We live on maui and plan to continue spend our thanksgivings in volcano.

    • Manager Responded on 12/16/2023

      Mahalo nui for your review, Lenny. We're so happy you enjoyed your visit, and are very sorry that you found dirty items in the kitchen. Please remember that if you have any issue during your stay all you have to do is let us know and we will send someone to address it! I've let our housekeeping manager know so she can have her cleaners check the dishes that are put away. We hope to host you on future Thanksgiving visits to Volcano!!

    Julia P from Burlington, VT recommends this vacation rental

    Wonderful little place in the middle of the cloud forest close to the Volcano National Park. This little cottage is made for two, but worked very well for 2 as well. It is so carefully put together, with a bit of luxury that is an interesting contrast to the wild forest surrounding. Place was clean, in great condition, contacting manager was easy, I'd go there again.

    The cottage is tucked in the jungle and is very quiet. All you hear are the coqui frogs or the occasional wild pig grunting. It was clean and cozy. The gas fireplace is nice on cool evenings. Great jump off point to explore Volcano NP, which is less than 10 minutes away.

    Justin S from N/A, CO recommends this vacation rental

    How many "wow's" can one fit into a review? This cabin was incredible! You literally felt like you were in a rainforest every morning - because you will be! It's luscious green everywhere, with wildlife that walks right up to the back door. This was my husband's and I third and final spot during our honeymoon and the tranquility of this cabin was undeniable. We stopped into Hilo to do some light shopping on the second day and that was an enjoyable short drive. Along with the volcano park tour we took! Beautiful secluded stay!

    • Manager Responded on 5/23/2023

      Mahalo for your review, Justin, and for choosing us for your very special visit. Kahaualea Cottage is such a sweet, romantic spot - perfect to finish up a honeymoon!!

    a guest from Georgetown, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Wonderful rainforest experience near Volcano. Had a great time. Property manager highly responsive, property well-appointed. Be aware that you're in the rain forest and treat/plan accordingly -- it takes a few minutes to lock up and leave, the road is unfinished, and Volcano isn't open 24/7. The internet isn't as fast as it is in other places, and that's ok. Highly recommend if you're looking for a place to jump to Volcanoes National Park.

    a guest from UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio does not recommend this vacation rental.

    This rental house was great. We really enjoyed the secluded spot and proximity to the volcano. One thing that we did not enjoy was the "cute family of pigs" on the property. We were told about the pigs, but were unaware they enjoyed being under the house and are semi-nocturnal. They woke us up several times during our two night stay. The house itself was amazing, and there isn't much you can do about wildlife, but it may be worth asking about the pig status before you book if you are a sensitive sleeper. Internet was also not great if you plan to use it for work or streaming.

    • Manager Responded on 7/13/2022

      Thanks for the review and we're glad you enjoyed the house! We are always doing what we can to push the wild pigs away from the property. Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Crew

    a guest from Grayling, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Nice setting....very private. Only issue was washing machine was inoperable. Upon inquiry, the property manager said she had communicated a couple weeks before our arrival that machine did not work. Upon checking my email I found the email she referenced but it didn’t mention machine. Other than that miscommunication all other communications were prompt and clear. We had a short stay, so it wasn’t a big deal. Good welcoming book instructions and directions to the place.

    • Manager Responded on 4/25/2022

      Thanks for letting us know about the miscommunication Monte, we have corrected our process. The washing machine is being replaced April 27, 2022. We are sorry it was inoperable for your stay. Appliance shortages on Hawaii Island have made replacements take longer than normal. Mahalo for staying with us and glad you enjoyed the House Book! Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Crew

    Bryan M from N/A, CO recommends this vacation rental

    We loved our time here. This was our last place on a six week, four island trip and was the perfect ending spot for us. The location gave us easy access to Volcano National Park which is an amazing place to explore for days and the little town of Volcano is close for food and supplies (Kilauea Lodge and the Thai food truck highly recommended). We did go to the top of Mauna Kea from here which made for a long day but the drive, by way of Hilo, was an easy one with little traffic. The place itself is really special too. It's very modern, comfortable, open and spacious with so many windows you feel like you're outside in the jungle but safely sheltered. It's very quiet and peaceful here. The surrounding jungle with the huge ferns and Ohi'a trees seem very primitive and native Hawaiian. You almost expect a dinosaur to walk past the window. You see a lot of nature here too including pigs and Kalij pheasants and wild orchids and other exotic flowers. Just a wonderful place. Mahalo
