We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at this cozy cabin in a great tropical garden. It was clean, very quiet and well appointed. A perfect place to relax, rain or shine. The provisions of fresh fruits, eggs, coffee etc. were more than enough for our three breakfasts. And for us, the location next to Volcanoes National Park could not... More

The Crater Rim Cabin sits in a gorgeous garden setting, away from the noise. The 4000' elevation provides a cool respite after being in the heat of the coast and Hilo. The whole environment allows for relaxation. The cabin is well appointed, even some food (and beer) in the frig! The hospitality of Jim and Barry makes you feel right... More

Thank you so much for your great review. (The previous guests must have left the beer, but we are happy you enjoyed it! ) This month (May), our night/day temperatures have been ranging from 55ºF to 68ºF. Great for snuggling in at night and exploring during the day. More

We are currently in our second of three nights. Of our two weeks vacation (just ending it) this is by far the nicest place we have stayed. The cabin has four spacious rooms (kitchen, bath, living and bed). The kitchen is well stocked. We are cooking spaghetti right now for dinner. Very quiet as the only tenant. Highly recommended. JD...

We have stayed at many B&B’s, and this is certainly at the top of places we have stayed.

Far from the resorts and traditional B&Bs is Crater Rim Cabin, nestled in beautifully landscaped lush tropical grounds. The Cabin is large with a number of nice features (the bathroom window opening to the outdoors stands out) - a large bedroom with a large comfortable bed, all the more cozy due to the electric blanket; a welcoming main room with...

Wow! What a wonderful and complete review. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. We are at about 4000 ft elevation, so nights and mornings can feel chilly any time of year.

Barry and Jim have put a lot of love into this property, and it shows. The cabin is adorable and a great home base for exploring Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. On our first night, it was even clear enough to see the glow from the lava lake at Halema'uma'u Crater. The cabin provides a very private, rustic setting. There is... More

This is a very private and relaxing place to stay if you want to spend a couple of days in Volcano.
