Great family cottage
My family of 4 really enjoyed this cottage near Volcano National Park. Everything we needed was there, and the place was clean and comfortable. We found if very convenient to drive to and from Volcano Village and the entrance to the park. For us it was especially nice to have a secluded and private home to ourselves where our two kids could make noise without worry we would wake neighbors. Highly recommend this place!

Lovely Cottage With All You Need
A relative stayed here and recommended it to my wife and I. I would likewise recommend this rental to any friend or relative. It really lives up to the description the owner provides. It has everything you need, including utensils, plates, cups, microwave, coffee maker, stove, refrigerator and even wi-fi. It is an easy drive from Hilo, and only a few minutes away from Volcanoes National Park. It is in a nice, secluded area, but easy to find. If you are on the Big Island to relax, this cottage is perfect. My wife was amazed at all the work the owner has put into the beautiful landscaping around the cottage. The owner or manager was very responsive to my emails and a phone call with questions. Affordable and lovely. Much nicer and far more memorable than a hotel.

You want to stay here
We loved this place for the following reasons: Looks exactly as the pictures, or even better Well appointed Super Cute Super private - We couldn't even see another house from this one Large and comfortable covered deck with a good garden view Grounds were well maintained and beautiful Well labeled and easy to find extra supplies (extra bedding for pull out couch) Seems to be a well-managed and well-planned vacation rental. To summarize: do yourself a favor and rent this place for your Volcano stay. I could have stayed here much longer than I did. Also, you should definitely grab some food one night from the Thai food truck and eat it here instead of the mediocre Volcano restaurants. Better food, more comfortable environment. I didn't, but would on a do-over!

No one wanted to leave at the end of our stay.
We had a great time at Kuuipo Cottage! Everything we wanted or needed was provided! The cottage was clean and cozy. Everything was so nice! We LOVED the deck outside! What a perfect place to sit while enjoying the peace and tranquility of nature. The cottage is located close enough to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Volcano Village that we could come back when we wanted to rest, eat or clean up. It is even close enough to Hilo to take advantage of the shopping and activities there. One day we drove to the Panaewa Zoo, which is an awesome free zoo on the road to Hilo. Going the other direction, toward Kona, holds another world of amazing things to see. We highly recommend Kuuipo Cottage. We can't wait to go back again! THANK YOU for the best accommodation of our vacation!

This sweet cottage has a great location for visiting the volcano; night viewing spectacular!!!
We loved this location; quiet, beautiful and authentic!!!! The house is adorable, clean and so comfortable. It really gives you the feeling of living in Hawaii. We even spend one day just visiting on the deck, and then went to see the crater at night! We will stay here whenever we come to Hawaii.

Ku'uipo Cottage is heavenly - perfect place to relax and be surrounded by the beautiful nature of Hawai'i !
The moment you arrive you set your eyes upon the most charming cottage, surrounded by so many of Hawaii's beautiful plants and aromatic flowers. The grounds of the cottage is well kept and the property is surrounded with fragrant pikake (jasmine), puakenikeni, and striking 'ohia trees. Once you step foot in the cottage you can't help but feel the warmth of aloha envelope you. The kitchen has all the modern conveniences you need, the living room is cozy with a fireplace and the bedroom has a big picture window that makes you feel like you're sleeping outside with nature. There's a great lanai that goes out to the back of the property where you can relax, sip your coffee in the morning or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. Ku'uipo Cottage at night is another breathtaking experience. Being near the Volcano National Park means the evenings are quite cool and on a clear night the sky is filled with millions of stars and it feels like you can just reach out and touch it! This is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life - relax and recharge !
