We had a wonderful stay at the Crater Rim Cabin. This is a very clean, well maintained and very well furnished cabin, located 2min from the entrance of the Volcano NP. We were welcomed by Barry, who showed us the place and gave us great tips to discover the park. The location is real advantage: you can go back easily...

Thank you for your review! Sometimes our guests are surprised that we include warming blankets on the beds. After all, it is Hawaii! But, at over 4000 ft (1250 m) elevation, our nights can be chilly even in the summertime!

We cannot say enough good things about crater rim cabin. Our stay was perfect from start to finish. From the excellent previsit directions and site seeing suggestions to the warm welcome. The cabin is perfect size, with living room, kitchen, and bedroom. Barry and Jim keep it in immaculate condition, and stocked it with everything a visitor might need. Enough...

We spent 3 nights in this extremely comfortable and fully equipped cabin. Barry & Jim were extraordinarily welcoming. The setting was beautiful and private. The location was just about 5 minutes to Volcano National Park, which was perfect for us. We couldn't ask for more.

We were so impressed with our stay at Crater Rim Cabin. Firstly, the location is unbeatable. The cabin is a 5 minute drive from Volcano National Park so we could easily visit the volcanoes whenever we wanted while other visitors had to drive all the way back to Kona or Hilo. The cabin itself is the most well equipped accommodation...

We stayed here for two nights while circumnavigating the Island of Hawaii. Upon arrival, we had a lovely welcoming sign. The gardens are exquisite and wild, and cabin is cozy with lovely linens, towels and 1930's style wooden planks. Wonderful bedding with mattress warmer because the weather there is cool at night. Great instant fireplace to warm the cabin and...

Thank you for the great review! People are surprised when they see electric warming blankets in Hawaii. Our chilly nights at 1235 meters elevation (4050 feet) makes them just the ticket for a comfy nights sleep. The bananas are a variety called Apple Bananas, and they are grown on the Big Island. They taste bright and sweet, compared to the...

I stayed here on my first trip to the Big Island six years ago and wanted to go back ever since. I just got back yesterday from a three-night stay and it was just as wonderful as I remember.

JoAnn & Sarah - Thank you for such a wonderful and detailed review. I went to see Halemaumau Crater yesterday, midday. I was surprised to be able to see spattering orange molten lava from the overlook at Jaggar Museum. The lava lake had risen to a level of only 17 meters below the rim. This allowed a direct view of...

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...

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.

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.

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.
