This B&B is close to Volcano NP in the rain forest. It's like staying at a relatives house for a visit. From the very start Regina makes you welcomed and very comfortable. We stayed in the bamboo orchid room. There was a wide variety of choices at breakfast, but the best part was the conversation with our host and the...

My wife and I had a great stay at the Lava Pond Lodge on our honeymoon. We chose it because of it's proximity to the National Park and we couldn't have been happier to see how close it was. The room was cozy and the innkeepers couldn't have been nicer. We had never stayed in a B&B so we were...

Lovely little B&B right in Volcano; just a short drive from the entrance to Volcanoes National Park. Regina is an excellent hostess who is quick to provide local insights and tips and a yummy breakfast. We stayed in the enchanted forest room with our 11 year old twin girls. The room sleeps four, has a fridge and microwave, and private...

This is a lovely B&B set in a tropical jungle type setting. Proprietor is lovely and makes an awesome mango fruit breakfast along with other amenities.

My husband and I stayed here three nights while we explored Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The house is gorgeous inside - the online photos don't do it justice. We were in the Kipuka room. All the rooms have a keyless entry door code which was very convenient. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean. The shower had good water pressure...

We had a delightful experience at the Bamboo Orchid! It was in a lovely private location, very clean, quiet and comfortable. Randall made us awesome breakfasts with fresh papaya as a staple plus all the "normal" items, in abundance. He also gave us great tips on local restaurants and attractions to see. Great value for the money too!

The Bamboo Orchid Cottage B&B is located in the residential section of the town of Volcano across the highway from the main part of town. The whole area is carved out of rainforest which serves as a buffer between all the houses, so it is very quiet as far as human activity is concerned. Being in the rainforest provides it...
