My partner and I stayed in the Ohelo Berry Cottage in February 2017. I had no idea what to expect for this part of our Hawaiian holiday but it will remain a treasured memory for my whole life! Being so close to the Volcano National Park is so convenient and it allowed us to drive the 5mins it took every...

Garret and Sandy offer a personalised service to guests that I have never before come across. On arrival, Garret gave us a 30 minute tour of the grounds and the cottage, (we stayed in the Artist's House) and talked about our plans and interests, providing all sorts of useful advise and recommendations for places to go and the best operators...

These pretty, comfortable, little self-contained bungalows are tucked into a very verdant nook in the centre of Volcano village, a short walk from shops and eateries and very close to the volcano of Kilauea. There are no details on the cottages or the activities in the area that Garrett leaves unmentioned. A good base for enjoying the possibilities of Hawai’i...

We stayed at one of the cottages during a bicycle ride around the Big Island. The house was spacious, impeccably clean, and convenient to good food as well as the incredible Hawaii Volcanoes NP. The landscaping includes attractive gardens and woods that make you feel as though you're out in the country, though restaurants and businesses are only short walks...

We stayed in the 'Artists Cottage' which has two bedrooms. Very nicely laid out. Everything you need including great concierge service from Garret. Pluses include great location, great breakfast, free wifi and reasonable 'cleaning fee' (some are out of control). Negatives are very little lighting at night in garage area to access the steps (one flight up). Not enough banana...

Aloha and mahalo for taking time to write such a kind review. The Artist's House is a great place for two couples or for singles wishing their own bedroom. Glad you found it comfortable. We are just a three minute drive to the park entrance, you cannot get much closer. Makes it convenient for the evening viewing of the Halema'uma'u...

Our stay here was great! Location, place and host were awesome.

Mahalo Garret and Sandy. You made our stay truly the trip of a lifetime! 13 days in one spot, a spot we could have spent a lifetime. Your knowledge and service are truly an asset to the "Big Island."

We spent two nights here in the Ohelo Berry Cottage, the smallest of the four cottages. It's a studio with frig and microwave, and was plenty of space for two people who don't cook on vacation! The cottage itself was charming, clean, and functional, and the front porch relaxing. The gardens were fascinating, as was the wildlife - I wish...

Aloha and mahalo for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you found the cottage clean and nice. The dehumidifier helps it stay that way because as you said we live in a tropical climate. We do ask that you run the dehudifier while you are gone so the noise does not bother you. In the summer...
