... coast, seeing plenty of old sugar growing areas around Waipi'o Valley. Dennis grew up in this area and knew a lot of its history. He grew up on a sugar cane plantation and worked here until it closed. He said the plantation owners supplied houses for the workers, however each nationality was kept separate. He speaks pidgin - a result of living here with many different cultures. He showed us where ...
... go with temptation again and paid more I think. The drivers commentary was putting me to sleep,oh well all done,seen Hilo. Had a shower and got ready to meet at Moderno Bar for pre dinner drinks. Had a few drinks and Trav and Lucy did a random tour with a taxi and cruised around and the bloke shared a few joints with them lol awesome! Ken and barbie met us for a drink ( Tom and Chelsea) then we went down to Teppanyaki omg yum, it was really good,worth the $25 fee we got fried rice ...
... up on some of the smaller island sites. We went first to one of the villages that was partly washed away in a lava flow, but this was fairly dull (lots of lava and a rather rough town). From there we went to one of the black sand beaches, which also turned out to be a (surprisingly full of young ladies) nudist beach. The beach was bizarre, and the whole area was very pretty.
We drove the scenic coast road, stopping at the various scenic lookouts and taking a few ...
... But if we thought the journey there was bad, it was much worse going back. The waves felt even bigger and it was very dark now which really didn't help. It took longer than an hour to get back and Matt managed over half of it before finally being sick. In his defence, even I was was struggling and when we finally made it back a couple of other people went running for the toilet. It really was an amazing trip and we were both a bit gobsmacked at what we'd seen, it ...
... botanical garden. We wandered around the grounds taking various pictures of huge flowers that we don't see on the mainland. The waterfall itself had many tiers and the botanical garden had zip lines set up for those who wanted to fly above the falls. We wandered back to the town of Volcano to have our last dinner. Tomorrow we would awake early for our last activity before taking an early afternoon flight to the next island destination of Kauai'i. The alarm clock rang at 1:45am ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Volcano Inn Cottages
Apparently there are two Volcano Inns in Volcano HI. This review is specifically for the Volcano Inn located on 2nd Street (off Jade St.) in Volcano HI.
This review is for the Volcano Inn on 2nd Street.
This Volcano Inn is located on 2nd Street. This consists of 4 rooms located in 2 seperate cottages. They are located in a rainforest which the double corner windows overlook.
We stayed 5/27/06 - 5/31/06 in the Nene cottage.
The right place to stay
Frommers as always was right. A great value.
A quiet respite in Volcano - nice deal
Very nice room and a great value at the Volcano Inn on the outskirts of (don't blink or you'll miss it) Volcano. Spacious room with good queen bed, enclosed porch with fridge, nice bath on second floor. Continental breakfast wasn't fancy, but enough choices, fresh fruit, kona coffee, etc.
We recommend the Thai, Thai restaurant, but you can skip the Lava Rock Cafe. They roll up the sidewalks at about 7 in Volcano.
I stayed at the Volcano Inn in the village of Volcano, HI on January 20th, in the Hapu'u room. There are actually two Volcano Inns in this area so make sure you go to the one on Second St. near Jade St.. It's an incredible value (especially for Hawaii) in a very beautiful part of the rainsorest. I paid only $79.00 with tax for the night! The Nene and Hapu'u rooms are actually a duplex behind the main houe that the owners live in. They have TV, a microwave, coffee pot, and a small fridge. From the bed you look out two large picture windows into a rainforest filled with awesome tree ferns. It also has a full bath seperate from the bedroom. Make sure to check in before it gets dark or you may not find this place. The sign is in a bit from the street, in the driveway and it's very small and hard to see even in daylight. This a great homebase for exploring Volcano National Park, which less than ten minutes away. That's what I did. If you have a family they also have a multi-bedroom place with a kitchenette. This place is very serene and quiet, and you'll only see the owners upon your arrival and departure. The only negetive thing was the lack of shampoo in the bathroom, so make sure to bring your own. Also they won't take a credit card, they require you to pay for the room ahead of time by personal check (and it must clear the bank first) or money order. It' a little weird but it went alright for me. I guess that's why they rent for sooo cheap! Great value in a beautiful place!
Excellent hideaway in the rainforest near Volcanoes National Park
This is one of the most inexpensive places you can stay near the Volcano. Do not get it confused with the other Volcano Inn though. This one is located on second street and is a series of small houses behind the owners house. Very friendly and excellent accommodations.
Please Note: There are two "Volcano Inn"s. This review is of the "Volcano Inn" on Second St. off Jade Ave.
