... animal! We looked around for more but this one seemed to be solo tonight. We were so happy to finally see the Hawaiian state bird! We took many pictures of this neat bird and then drove on. We stopped at the steam vents. These were fascinating. One, the steam was incredibly warm and now that we were cool, it felt so great. There were lots of pennies that had been thrown to the bottom but we decided to skip this tradition.
... an experience I will never forget and I will tell over and over again. As you can imagine, as soon as our heads hit the pillow...we were out from pure adrenalin and exhaustion. The next day we awoke excited for our days adventures. We were scheduled for a morning helicopter flight over the volcano area. What made this flight special was experiencing it with the DOORS OFF. The view of where we had walked the night before was clear in our views...and looking at it from above ...
... we came to an old fishpond. The sea walls were made of lava stones. They would fit them together by hand and they didn't use mortar of any kind. They are restoring it, because age and tsunami's caused it to crumble. The fishpond is now a sanctuary for water birds.
We walk along the coast in the mangrove first and later on the beach back to the starting point. In the fishpond we saw all kinds of water birds and between the rocks on the beach we ...
... around exploring the town, there really wasn’t much to do so maybe Kona would have been better afterall, I started changing my mind after strolling through some of the parks and reading about how Hilo was in a tsunami hot spot and hence why they don’t invest heavily in buildings etc.
Was by some stroke of luck walking distance from rainbow falls so seeing as there was nothing to do in the morning I walked up to them. You can tell you’re ...
... We saw lots of ferns, FBI (fungus, bacteria and invertebrates). Afterwards we stopped at the Laupahoehoe train museum. This used to be the train station for the sugar plantation trains till the Tsunami of 1946 destroyed everything. We saw a lot of memorabilia, a caboose, a shunter and an explosives car. They used it for blasting tunnels and clearing debris off the tracks.
We checked ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Volcano Village Lodge
The best breakfast!
The previous reviewers have written such eloquent and detailed accounts of their stay at this lodge (all true!), I'll try to be brief. Kay's quiche, both vegetarian and nonvegetarian versions, is the most tasty and healthful breakfast you could possibly get on the island! Some of the ingredients I could see include shitake mushrooms, onions, Swiss cheese, fresh tomatoes, asparagas, and bacon with maple flavors -- yum! She also bakes great banana-macadamia nut bread for breakfast. We stayed two nights at the lodge. We really wish we had stayed at least three nights just to hang out at the lodge one whole day and soak up the sheer beauty of this place.
There are no words to truly do justice to this wonderful place! The owners, Kay and her Husband, did an amazing job in creating a very romantic, confortable and well-hidden lodge in this tiny Village. I still believe that the true owner of the place is Jake; their cat... He kept our towels warm when we were in the hot-tub; kept our lodge safe at night; sleeping outside our door... Probably one of the very Zen cat I ever met!! Living in this magic place; I would be too!!
I highly recommend Volcano Village Lodge if you are looking for a wonderful nature retreat with 5-star facility and service with zen mind in Volcano area. Kay has been a great communicator even before our stay at the lodge. I exchanged e-mails with her, asking about her recommendations on our itinerary. As soon as we arrived at the lodge, there was no question about spending much time out of the lodge ground. We took advantage of strolling around in the beautiful lush garden, playing with Jake (very friendly!) and soaking ourselves in a hot tub. We took Kay's advice on having take-out dinner from Thai-Thai and had a candle lit dinner in our unit. The setting was amazingly romantic and we loved the food, too. Our unit had an extremely comfortable king size bed which Kay told me she had to transport it from the mainland specially. We could have stayed in there for hours, but then we could not wait to have a beautiful breakfast Kay had prepared in our unit the night before. We loved the moist banana bread as well as having toaster in the unit for bagels & cream cheese. We would have loved to stay longer; in fact, we decided to do so for the next time we visit Big Island. We didn't expect to see soooo much on the south east side of the island (like Puna area, for example) that we have to go back to Big Island to explorer more! Kay, thank you so much for your hospitality. As you know, we are both in luxe industry and we feel comfortable recommending your place to even our clients with private jets! We will be back again soon (desperately hoping so!) N&N, Tokyo, JAPAN
This place is simply magical! And I'm not one to write reviews of anything, (in fact this is my first!) but felt compelled after an amazing experience here.
We spent one night - our first anniversary - in the Kilauea cabin at Volcano Village Lodge. The room was gorgeous: from the very comfortable bed, you look out through three glass walls into the forest. In spite of the 270° of glass, the room feels very private. There's an interesting collection of books and magazines in the room and in the "library." Kay, the owner, had put together an incredible breakfast for us in our room (it was there when we got there, with fresh fruit in the fridge, so that we could wake up and have breakfast at our leisure)... plus a bottle of wine! The following morning it rained. Waking up in the rain, in the middle of the rainforest, is an sublime experience (especially when you don't get wet).
I have never written a review for lodging before, but am compelled to share my recent experience in Volcano, Hawaii. My new husband and I stayed at Volcano Village Lodge as part of our honeymoon and this was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. This relatively new B&B is classy and modern with immaculate cedar lodges complete with high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, marble countertops, refrigerator stocked with beverages, cheeses, and fresh fruit garnished with orchids, in addition to wireless access, flatscreen tv, and a private phone lines in each lodge. Yet, the space is completely homey and private with down comforters, wonderfully comfortable beds, robes, slippers, sumptuous shampoos and soaps, and a gas fireplace all while you are completely enveloped in rainforest.
Probably the easiest recommendation I can ever make in terms of lodging. Absolutely stunning! Why can't all hotels/lodges/B&B's be like this? The attention to detail was impecceablet! Granite counters, fully stocked mini-fridge (as in all complimentary), fruit and cheese plates, real milk ;), 100% Kona, coffee, hot chocolate, bagels/muffins, juices. . . wow!
If you are anywhere in Hawaii, please do yourself a favor and reserve a room at this lodge! You will thank yourself later! My new wife and I were priviledged to have the opportunity to stay at the Volcano Village Lodge for the last night of our amazing honeymoon to Hawaii. We spent a week on Maui and then ventured over to the Big Island to see the Volcano. This lodge is the absolute perfect place to stay for a trip to VNP. We were looking for a place to crash after our planned night hike to the see the lava. The lodge looked perfect on the webstie. In person it is even more perfect than imagined. The bed is so comfortable, the room is rustic but very classy, relaxing, and romantic. (Dont worry, No bugs or scary critters). The place is so modern and hi tech for being a "retreat". The flat screen TV's with DVD's showing the story of the Volcano while our personal gas fireplace warmed the room was very cool. This place is an incredible bargain. Kay C is so sweet and accomodating. When I reserved the room she responded asking what I would like for breakfast. When we arrived, we found our kitchenette fully stocked with all sorts of food: fruit, bagels, yogurt, eggs, snacks, and amazing banana bread! Also an electric tea kettle with tea and hot chocolate, all sorts of cold drinks like gatorade, juices, beer, tea, and she even provided a great bottle of wine for our special occassion. Kay is so eager to please. She is happy to help you enjoy your vacation to the max. Items like umbrellas and flashlights are provided for your trip to VNP. Volcano is such a unique place being in the rainforest and on top of an erupting volcano. It is so beautiful in the rainforest and the Volcano is absolutely incredible. I would never miss this trip if I am anywhere in the islands. The next time I am blessed to be able to return to Hawaii I will be sure to visit the volcano and I would never think about staying anywhere but Volcano VIllage Lodge!! Thanks so much Kay!
My husband and I stumbled into this newly opened bed and breakfast. We wanted to revisit the Volcanoes Park and then move on to the Kohala coast. This place in Volcano was so beautiful we decided to stay an extra day. We fell in love with the web site presentation of the lodge, but the actual place was even more awesome. I had stayed in Volcano many years ago but had never seen a place like this. It's hidden away in the Hawaiian rainforest but is only a mile from the park. The soaring architecture with all- cedar beams provided a very airy feel. All-glass walls on three sides revealed breath taking beauty of the rainforest all around. The meditation loft was a special treat, when I wanted a bit of personal space and to look at the forest from above. The innkeeper was incredibly gracious and helpful with everything. The tropical breakfasts were mostly organic and local goods. Sumptuous, delicious, fresh, and beautifully presented. The hot tub out on a private deck facing the tree ferns and orchids was tranquil and relaxing, especially with two Asian lanterns providing an exotic ambiance. The hot tub was also a must after a long hike in the park. The innkeeper thought of everything. A great selection of DVDs, CDs, and books, as well as umbrellas, beach mats, flash lights, and more. Having a private phone and fire place was also great. We had stayed in another Volcano bed and breakfast a few years ago. This new place is unlike anything we've seen before. A real find!
Volcano Lodge was all we hoped for and much more. The tranquil setting was superb and truely serene. Kay-C was a most gracious host and was definetly focused on our comfort. The lodge sits about 4,000 ft above sea level in the rainforest. The climate is cooler than at the lower elevations but is very refreshing and relaxing after spending a few days on the hot beaches on Maui. Tree ferns are growing everywhere. The lodge is only a short 1.5 miles from the Volcano National Park. This day trip is a must see. Plan to take an evening trip down the Chain of Craters road to see the steam plume and lava enter the ocean. The scene after dark is incredible. The hike across the lava filed is an adventure in itself. You will see many, many various formations of hardened lava. Kay-C can assist you in making all the preparations you need for an enjoying and eventful trip to the park and lava fields.
