This is a sweet little cottage village that is just off the main highway going to Volcano National Park. It is not a five-star hotel/resort but the rooms are very clean and quiet as a nice respite from mainstream travelism. Mike was very nice and helpful in terms of accommodation and additional recommendations of local points of interest. Nancy was also pleasant to meet, however brief, as a fellow Oklahoman. Our breakfast consisted of fresh papaya and banana bread along with some ground coffee and guava juice. Ultimately, we needed a little more sustenence for our daily excursions, but this was a nice and tasty introduction into the rest of the day. The grounds are pretty well sculpted and landscaped. It is difficult to explore beyond the visible regions due to the frequently muddy terrain but we were quite well satisfied with the areas we saw.

We are a group of 7 ladies celebrating 2 50th birthdays and stayed here. we had the cottage, the Dillingham suite, and the master accomodation. All were very charming and quaint and a refreshing change after Oahu. Michael was very informative and provided lovely breakfasts. We cooked in both nights after having stocked up at Safeway. Excellent location for getting to the national park and exploring Kīlauea. We did use our warm clothes especially in the evenings.

We stayed here 3 nights and would totally recommend it to others. Comfortable and charming rooms. Lovely grounds. Our host was friendly and made us feel at home. This a great place to relax and to see the volcano park.

We have had wonderful stays in this charming get away. Mike is very helpful and friendly. It is set in a beautiful setting and the cottages are comfortable and sweet. The locating is great to btake day trips and to visit the Volcano Park. It is nice and cool in the evening, so makes sleeping sweet. Breakfast consists of home baked breads and local fresh fruit. You will make this a spot that you will return to...we have.

As a resident of Honolulu, Hale Ohia Cottages is my go-to place to unwind. Going back to the volcano now that the-glow-is-gone is a wonderful experience. Changes in the Volcano National Park were amazing, Going down to Puna, seeing the fresh lava and the fresh new land was an out of this world experience. The best part, for me, was to experience the serenity and hospitality of Hale Ohia and be glad that the important things remain the same. Little Volcano Village still has some of the state's great restaurants, with Volcano rustic charm.

When I made our reservation, I asked if being gluten free would be a problem. I got a prompt response that our breakfast would include homemade gluten free bread. What a treat! It came with half a papaya, pineapple and other daily fruit as well as a very generous serving of fresh juice, all vey beautifully presented with fresh flowers from the grounds. Each room or cabin on the professionally landscaped grounds has a refrigerator, coffee maker, hot tea pot and unique furnishings.Our room had two comfortable chairs and two folding trays for eating breakfast. I loved spending time walking the grounds and listening to the abundant bird song. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable. They provided a local map and directions to the eating places we had reserved. We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Volcanoes National Park.

I reserved the Ohia cottage for a 6 night stay including New Year's. Unfortunately, it turned out to only be a 5 night stay due to delays before I could get there, but that takes nothing away from this charming, beautiful property. I stayed with my husband and my two college-aged kids. There are three sleeping areas, one bathroom, a very functional kitchen with lots of windows, and a terrific upstairs area for us to hang out and play cards while the rain fell outside. This place is truly what I imagine a "holiday cottage" would be like, if I had grown up with such a thing. And, it is impossible to beat the included breakfast of fresh papayas, homemade bread and other assorted fruits and cereal bars and juice. I was lamenting to my husband that I just didn't know how I was going to manage once I no longer had the luxury of fresh papaya to look forward to. On logistics: this place is about 1 mile from the National Park, which we were still able to visit although some parts of it are closed due to the shut down. There is an handful of great restaurants in the area. Close to many other fun diversions as well (we went zip lining, took a mule-driven carriage ride in the Waipio Valley, and visited the black sand beach at Punalu'u that is known for its abundance of green sea turtles. I'll be back.

We stayed here for one night. We were pleasantly surprised. The manager/owner baked us non dairy bread after we informed her that my daughter and I were lactose intolerant. Wow. Very thoughtful and sweet. Really didn't expect that. The building may seem old on the outside but the inside is clean and remodeled. I would definitely go back and recommend this place. The price is very reasonable as well.

This gem was the highlight of our stay on the big island. From the beautifully presented and tasty breakfast each morning to the quiet serene surroundings, you feel as though you’ve stepped into another world. Top that with Mele and her delightful daughter, Kalei and you have the perfect get away. Not only was it a great base to come home to each night,so homey and warm, but Mele was so helpful with suggestions on where to go,see,or do. We are quite certain it wouldn’t have been as good a trip if we hadn’t discovered this delightful,enchanting place with Mele to make it even better.

We had a great stay at Hale Ohia Cottages. The accommodations were very nice and clean. We thought the cottage was adorable, and loved the small touches like leaving breakfast in our fridge in the evening. This was the perfect place to stay and explore the nearby area. Definitely recommend!
