Recent guest reviews

Perfect location for seeing all the HVNP sites. Our host Theresa was extremely helpful with suggestions to narrow the choices and get the most out of our visit.

Great local knowledge of what was open during government shutdown, restaurants and attractions close and far.

Nice place, good hostess, excellent breakfasts. Did not know that we would be in a rain forest without air conditioning to dry things out.

Second B&B we stayed in at Volcano. A bit far from Gate compared to others. Place smelled musty and wet. No straightening of room during stay. Breakfasts were great though and hostess was very helpful an friendly.

We weren't sure what to expect staying at a bed and breakfast in Volcano village, but we were pleasantly surprised with the area and the home. In addition Lori was a great host. She was very informative with information about the area, and even recommended some things that we hadn't looked at before going. Overall the stay was fantastic and it felt like we were staying with a good friend.

Close to volcano national park. Inn keeper (Lori) is very friendly and provide guidance for places to visit. Nice breakfast.

The right combination of privacy and company. Good breakfast and interesting conversations with other guests. The inn keeper was very friendly and helpful. The place is tastefully done.

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and what a delight. We stayed in the Orchid Room. It was like a spa. Comfortable King sized bed, jacuzzi tub, towels with fresh blossoms on them, robes. Breakfast was great with fresh fruits and hot entrys with a lovely presentation. It is apparent Lori, our host, takes pride in caring for guests from breakfast , to the comfort and cleaniliness of the rooms, to her warm and welcoming manner. Conversation with couples from France, Germany, Switzerland added to the ambiance. This was such a lovely experience.

Arrived very late; inn keeper was excellent in providing directions and instructions. Had emailed that I had an early start the next morning, host was up and made to go breakfast for me and my wife. Will totally stay again. Only minutes from the volcano!

Wonderful accommodations with a very attentive hostess. The breakfast was amazing and had quite a variety to choose from.

Arrived Early and The innkeeper accommodated us, The room and other accommodations are very nice.

5 minutes to the volcano park and a perfect spot to explore other beautiful attractions from. Our host Randall was amazing. From his wonderful Papaya boat breakfasts to his invaluable advice on all our adventures. This was a wonderful place to use as home base and the royal orchid suite was a fantastic, romantic, honeymoon location.

Thank you for taking the time to review Lava Pond Lodge. The big island is a unique place with many different eco-systems and our rainforest is very lush and green and somewhat damp at times! So glad you enjoyed breakfast, it is my favorite time to share conversation and a meal!

Thank you for your review. You have my personal apologies that we did not meet your full expectations. I should have explained to you that we generally do not service the guest rooms on a daily basis, unless you brought an issue to my attention the room would be checked every other day to spot clean, remove trash and replace any used towels.
