We spent a wonderfully secluded time at a beautiful dreamlike spot in the rainforest . The design of the property is magnificent and every detail is well thought through to bring peace and relaxation. Peter is a wonderful host who cares about his guests as much as his property.

Our 3-night stay in the Bamboo Guest House at Volcano Rainforest Retreat exceeded our expectations (and our expectations were high!). Kathleen & Peter were wonderful hosts who greeted us warmly. Kathleen provided invaluable suggestions for nearby sights, hikes and dining. (Note: we did everything she suggested and are very grateful!) VRR is nestled in the rainforest, but easy to find and conveniently located to the park and Volcano Village. Bamboo Guest House is a dream: visually stunning inside and out, it conveys a sense of serenity and calm. You can feel the years of love and care that Kathleen & Peter have put into the property: tasteful color palette, authentic Hawaiian art, lush floral arrangements and attention to detail confirm you are staying somewhere very special. The bedding was extremely comfortable, towels were plush and luxurious robes were provided for the indulgent Japanese furo. The kitchen was well appointed and continental breakfast items provided each day. There is ample parking in an adjacent carport. A stay at Volcano Rainforest Retreat is an experience that will recharge your spirits and delight your senses!

The Skylight House is probably the most beautiful B&B cottage we have ever stayed at. The architectural design is impeccable; lots of windows to enjoy nature (though still very private) -- we didn't even feel bad that we spent so much time inside. Kathleen and Peter were the most gracious hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. I always looked forward to the breakfast spread -- we made Peter's papaya/banana treat every morning at our next place too, it was so tasty.

This was our first visit to Big Island and we chose this place to stay based on the reviews and its proximity to Volcano National Park. The reviews were on point, everything about the B&B was prefect, beautifully decorated, spacious, clean and the lovely sound of raindrop which gives you a calming feeling while you sleep. The breakfast provided by Peter and Kathleen every morning was amazing, loved the fresh tropical fruits and pastries. For groceries and restaurants you have to drive 20-30 mins to Hilo, there are excellent selection of places to eat in Hilo. This is a great place to stay if you are visiting big island, look no further.

What a great place to stay while visiting the National Volcano Park. Great views out of all the large windows. Surrounded by trees and bushes with a cool path winding over to the jacuzzi. Very private. I promise you won't regret staying here. Quiet, peaceful, comfortable, flashlights, robes, thongs provided. Great natural breakfast basket every morning.
