Volcano, HI 96785 United States

Aloha and Welcome to the Dancing Bamboo Cottage!

Dancing Bamboo Cottage is located on 3 acres surrounded by the Big Islands upcountry rain forest. Lush guava and bamboo jungle, beautiful anthuriums, large Ohi'a trees and Hapu'u ferns surround the property. And you're minutes from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which has a whole new look after the great eruption of 2018 that closed the Park for several months!

Please note that there is another rental on this large property - Dancing Ferns. The units are fairly close in proximity but have no shared space other than the parking area, so don't be alarmed if you see a vehicle when you arrive. The outdoor areas are on opposite sides from each other and there is space between the units so your privacy is assured. If you need more room there is a discount for renting both units together.

Dancing Bamboo Cottage is a detached studio located just outside a beautiful country home, Dancing Ferns which is also available for vacation renting. The décor is Hawaiian plantation, with a kitchenette, cozy sitting area, large king bed and a luxurious walk in marble shower, WiFi, DVD player with a selection of movies, coffee pot, hot plate, microwave and mini-fridge. Please NOTE: there is NO washer/dryer, no phone (cell service is good) and no air conditioning (at 3,500 ft elevation the air is naturally cool).

What to Pack:
The Island of Hawaii, aka the Big Island, boasts over 4,000 square miles and 10 different climate zones, within which are many micro climate zones! You may think that packing your favorite swimsuit and slippers (flip flops) is enough, but not true if you plan on doing any hiking or sightseeing around the island. The Volcano area can get quite chilly with temperatures dropping down to the low 40s at night, sometimes lower, so do bring your favorite warm pajamas and at least a light jacket. It actually snows often on Mauna Kea, but they close those roads whenever there are blizzard conditions present.

Rates are for single or double occupancy. Cleaning and other fees will also apply.

Need more room? Our main house, Dancing Ferns, is a fantastic place to stay too. Dancing Ferns has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, large dining area, large living area with SMART TV, Free WiFi, and a large covered lanai (patio). Book BOTH for a discount - ask us how!

This is a Hawaii County licensed short term rental.

    Charles O recommends this vacation rental

    My partner and I stayed here for a couple nights for the Volcano National Park leg of our Hawaii visit. The Bamboo cottage is just as described. It's super close to the national park and was a nice place to come back to after we were done exploring. So quiet and peaceful and the STARS were amazing. Coffee on the lanai before we headed out, just taking in the landscape... I would definitely stay again.

    Ryan W from Goddard, KS recommends this vacation rental

    this has been a great place to stay. very nice quality house and clean. in short this place is the reason why the local resorts and hotels bribed the mayor, and others, to pass restrictive laws against short term vacation rentals because people were no longer staying at hotels and resorts. yes there are somethings to consider. there is a unpaved road for the last block of road. not all the lots/homes in the estate are perfect and clean but they are never bothersome or a problem, minor and hardly worth mentioning. a washer/dryer would be nice but for that you would have to pay more due to the price of electricity on island and depending on your length of stay not an issue if you pack right. i would stay here again (and probably will) and recommend it to anyone.

      Mahalo for your review, Ryan! I'm sad to say that you hit the nail on the head with your comments about local politics :-( We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and appreciate your tips and comments for future guests. We are honored that you'd recommend us, and hope to host you again next time you visit Volcano! Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew Salt Water Real Estate, Hilo HI

    Kelly M from Westminster, CO recommends this vacation rental

    We had a lovely time at Dancing Bamboo! The property was clean and super cute. It was easy to find and easy to communicate with the company. It was tucked away from the main house so it felt like there was nobody else on the property. Would definitely recommend and come back!

    a guest from Yamba, NSW does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The cottage was clean and attractive. Bed was comfortable. Not hard to find when you followed the hosts instructions. Unfortunately, the cottage had a very musty smell and had to be aired vigorously each day after it had been closed while we were out. As well, there was no hot plate supplied as advertised which required some original thinking to get dinner cooked. Overall, a pleasant stay but could use a few little improvements.

    • Manager Responded on 4/19/2023

      Thank you for the review Roberta. The missing hot plate will be replaced. We would have brought one to you - please in the future just let us know. We're here to help and want to help. Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Crew

    Dancing Bamboo was a great location here in Volcano for our visiting family. Staff took great care to ensure our folks had everything they needed, didn’t have any trouble checking in and responded quickly any time we reached out, awesome customer service and attention - so appreciated. Beautiful rainforest views and a peaceful place to recharge. Will book again.

    a guest from Prince George, VA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great stay at this cottage! The location was excellent for going to and from the national park as well as Hilo. The cottage itself was very cozy and clean. Due to the weather we had to use the de-humidifier and space heater which were so helpful to have and both worked quickly when we needed them!
    The welcome packet had lots of helpful recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We were able to go to some of the recommended restaurants and they were wonderful.
    We would absolutely recommend this place to others and would happily go back!

    We enjoyed our stay at Dancing Bamboo Cottage. This is a lovely, remote cottage that is clean and very efficient. We had everything we needed to be comfortable. The shower was beautiful, nice hard spray and large shower area. The bed was big and very comfortable. We were only 10 minutes from Hawaii’s Volcano National Park.

    Jocelyn T from Lawrenceville, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    Close to the national parks which is what we were looking for. Comfortable and cute space with stylistic decor. The bathroom was my favorite feature of the place with a large shower and two mini sinks. It does require opening and closing a gate when entering and leaving the property but is normal among the surrounding properties.

    Rental was very clean and everyone was responsive to our needs. I think window blinds would be a nice addition to the rental even though it was a very private location.

    • Manager Responded on 1/31/2022

      Aloha Susan and thank you for recommending Dancing Bamboo! We're not sure what condition issues had DB ranking a '3' but we've noted this for the next inspection. For future potential guests, please read other reviews as we do work very hard to ensure the property is immaculately clean and well maintained. Mahalo!, The Salt Water Crew
