Our family gathered for a long weekend to explore the Volcano area and the Mauna Kea summit. This location is ideal for both. Our home was completely furnished. It is clear the owners have been thoughtful in providing essentials some vacation rentals overlook such as condiments, paper-goods, useful utensils. There were plenty of linens and toiletries. We appreciated these touches and felt we were cared for.
The home and it's amenities including the hot tub and fireplace are little luxuries that make you feel you are really on a vacation!

Arriving at the Ohia Plantation Cottage is like arriving at your own cottage except someone has been there to prepare it for you. There were fresh-cut flowers, in every room and in the two outdoor sitting areas. There was fresh fruit and taro bread. Not only was there a fresh pineapple but also the slicer to cut it. The week we were there Valcano National Park was closed due to the government shutdown but we had a wonderful stay anyway. Volcano was a great place to stay to explore the Southern places of the Big Island. When my family returns to explore Volcano National Park we will be staying at Ohia Plantation Cottage.

The home is beautiful and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The house is large and the floor plan is well laid out. It's in a very private setting just minutes from Volcano National Park. Very convenient. The continental breakfast that greeted us our first day there was very welcomed. We also liked the tradition of previous guests leaving condiments and other basic food supplies behind. It came in handy, especially in the first few days. We were here with another couple the third week of Sept 2012.

This is a long overdue review... We stayed there during Xmas. The cottage is very well decorated and has all the necessary stuff when traveling in the region, e.g., flash lights ;-) Just like a home. The owner is very good at answering all the questions.

The hospitality extended to us by Cliff and Bernie was absolutely incredible, and I simply can't speak highly enough of our stay at the Ohia Paniolo Cottage. First off, lets go over the amenities, then back to the hospitality.

The cottage itself is very well maintained, and the hot tub was perfectly sized for the area and maintained. The kitchen was well-stocked with cooking utensils, and the rooms were incredibly comfortable. The two nights we spent in Volcano were easily the most restful of our entire 8-day trip. The cottage is great for couples, a group of friends, or even a small family.

So, back to the hospitality. Before we even left home, Cliff and Bernie sent us a very nice CD with some Hawaiian music on it, to help us get into the Hawaiian state of mind. Upon arrival at the cottage, they had left us some excellent local fruit on the table, along with an immaculately clean cottage. When we left, I happened to leave my jacket on the breakfast table. I thought the jacket was lost forever, but Cliff called the next day, and actually shipped it (at no charge to me) back home to Texas. And finally, 3 MONTHS after our short stay at the cottage, Cliff and Bernie sent us a very nice Christmas card and a wonderful calendar of Hawaii (that is now on the wall in my wife's office).

When (not if) my wife and I go back to the Big Island... we're definitely staying here again.

Room Tip: Pick up groceries in Kona or Hilo. The local general store is extremely expensive.
