The location was peaceful (even

Thank you for this wonderful review! We are now experiencing a pause in the activity of Kilauea Volcano. The National Park staff is looking at the possibility of partially re-opening the Park soon! Keeping our fingers crossed!

We will remember this great cabin for a long time. Our hosts had thought of every detail to make us feel at home in a lovely and welcoming place. The garden is wonderful too and we enjoyed talking with our hosts who always had lots of suggestions to make our stay even greater.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review of our cabin! It always makes us happy to know that our guests thoroughly enjoy their stay with us. Your detailed comments are much appreciated! We do encourage potential guests to contact us before booking if they have any special needs or questions about the accommodations. When requested in advance, we are happy to reduce/minimize/eliminate the use of scented products. It is difficult to find effective cleaning/disinfecting agents that leave no scent at all, but we will do the best we can! (Beach towels are available on request.) Again, thanks for the great review!

Crater Rim Cabin offers a unique style of lodging that worked perfectly for what we were looking for: close to the park, private, comfortable, and unique. We spent three nights there during a cold, rainy spell, but the stove and electric blanket kept us cozy. The cabin itself

Thank you for your lovely review. We hope that Ma Nature is a little nicer on your next visit! Yes, we have hand made the Tutu Nene® line of products since 1992. Many folks like them and are pleased to be able to purchase "Made in Hawaii" gifts right here at the cabin. Again, thanks for your kind words!
