Our stay was a one of a kind experience in the heart of Volcano right next to the national park. I highly recommend the accommodations and the hosts. The breakfast was delicious local fruit & food that we completely enjoyed. Everything was amazing!
What a great time I had at the Volcano Acres Ranch B&B. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated and the bath was luxury itself. It was such fun to see the new ducklings swimming in the pond from my room window. Thanks a million to Theresa and Randy for making my stay a warm and an exceptionally friendly one.
It was cold while we were there but the comfortable bed with heated mattress kept us toasty. Loved the farm view and fresh eggs with fresh fruit every morning. Teresa and Randy do a great job directing visitors to the best sites and keeping them comfortable
We truly enjoyed our three nights at Volcano Acres. Family of 4, kids age 8 and 11, they loved the animals, and helped feed the donkey one morning. Breakfast had something for everybody, delicious fruit and homemade waffles on day two. Highly recommended for a stay near the national park (where unfortunately the lava stopped flowing...).
We have spent 10 exceptional days in Volcano Hawaii at the Volcano Ranch Bed and Breakfast. The Host/ Management were excellent in all that they provided for us as guest, tourist, and first time visitors to the Big Island. What initially took us to Volcano was to see tong time friends that reside there, and the stay at Volcano Ranch Bed and Breakfast (our lodging was at Lava Pond Lodge, which is associated with VRB&B) just put the "topping on the cake". Both the visit to the Island the Lodging [VRB.& B.] as well as getting with our resident friends just makes us look forward to another visit. Thank you Staff for a memorable visit see you in a future visit.
We booked our night in the ranch prior to the eruption and we are glad we didn't cancel. Whilst the national park is closed, this was still a fantastic experience in a rustic yet beautiful location. Despite the volcano, there is little to no vog and the air is very clear and fresh. You can still experience the glow of the volcano in the local town which spectacularly gives the horizon a wash of orange and is a beautiful yet devastating sight. However, the stay was such a different experience from a standard hotel that it is worth going simply for the ranch itself. As for the stay, the ranch's well-appointed cabins/rooms are set in a farm setting with some animals such as chickens and a donkey giving it a country vibe. That said if animals aren't your thing, they never disturbed us during our stay. The rooms themselves are exceptionally cosy and well furnished. Where it really excels is with Theresa and Randy who were friendly and fantastic hosts, with plenty of local knowledge. We were met on arrival, given a quick tour and then given freedom to roam the farm! The breakfast the next morning was divine, with some fresh eggs from their chickens included! Would heartily recommend.
It’s a little difficult to write about visiting a beautiful place like southeastern Hawai’i to see volcanic activity while recognizing that this is also a disaster for local residents. Hopefully, our interest in visiting at this time was viewed as helping the local economy during a tough period while still offering consideration and respect to those that have suffered the impact of the latest eruptions. Volcano Acres Ranch is a true treasure on the Big Island. It’s location is well protected and removed from the volcanic activity, but close enough to have an easy drive to Hilo for helicopter tours or to the boat tours. We were there on the day of the injuries suffered on a boat tour by the volcano, but had been advise to stay away from that particular company...apparently with valid reasons. Volcano Acres is a charming property with separate buildings or entrances to the owner’s home. Our room was very well appointed and spacious. Our view was remarkable....dozens of ducks, chickens, goats and geese, topped off with a very friendly “guard” donkey named Sunny. Although this may not be for everyone, we were delighted and excited to be surrounded by a few dozen family pets...especially those that provided very tasty eggs in the morning. A great experience and we’ll certainly return. Considering the current “climate”, I’ll emphasize again that it is not in an area that can be affected by the volcanic activity.
I recently stayed here and it is a wonderful place to stay. Theresa and Randy are super hosts, they are a wealth of knowledge on the local happenings, whether it be a restaurant recommendation or what is happening at the park. The breakfasts are very good, with fresh fruit, breakfast sandwiches, blueberry waffles, breads, etc. It is a wonderful place to stay for both getting away from it all and as a drop off point to Volcanoes National Park, which is only two or three miles away. There are lots of friendly animals here that will say hello to you. You do need to be on the lookout for "land mines" though. The room we had is what I call the "lake room" as it is off the main house and overlooks the pond. It is an awesome place for privacy and has a wonderful sun room to enjoy a beverage on. Also, the furnishings are nice and the king bed is very comfortable. I highly recommend this place and will return the next time I am on the Big Island.
We stayed one night here as we wanted to have a night/day to spend at the Volcano. Upon our arrival our host Theresa greeted us right away and showed us to our room. The room was very nice, it had a large king bed and a separate room with futon overlooking a pond. They had bottled water and fruit punch waiting for us in the mini fridge as well as some free snacks including microwave pop corn. Theresa spent some time going over local restaurant options and this was very helpful. We had a short drive to the volcano and it was awesome to see at night. The next morning we had breakfast with the other guests and it was nice to meet new people. After checking out, we visited the lava tubes and drove down to the ocean to take in the beautiful scenery. We got a message and text from Theresa that we left some clothes in our room, we were able to back and pick them up before our trip back to the other side of the Island. This was very much appreciated. If you are looking for a night to spend near the volcano on you Big Island trip I would recommend this place. Pros: Clean Room - Animal friends - All the animals were great. Our favorite was a Tortoiseshell cat that patrols the grounds and helps keep critters away. Close to Volcano National Park and they provide flashlights for you to borrow to help navigate at night. Small Pros/Cons: The breakfast room was very nice and the Egg sandwiches were a hit, however some of the breakfast items were a bit stale such as bagels and breads. It would be spectacular to have some fresh home baked items included. Our room had an odor of fertilizer. I understand this is a ranch and our room is part of a storage barn that is used, but we kept smelling a slight odor throughout the night. It took a little getting used to but was not too bad, it just kinda lingered and was a bit of an annoyance. Overall I would recommend for anyone traveling to see the volcano up close.
This place is a little paradise. The two lovely hosts made us feel at home from the very first minute. The “ranch” is home to numerous animals like goats, sheep, duck, chicken, cats and dogs which our son loved so much. The suite was huge, had a king sized bed incl. heating (!) as well as a big bath room with whirl pool. There are three different rooms available and the really great breakfast is served together in a family style. From freshly made blueberry pancakes to duck eggs and a fantastic fruit salad - we didn’t miss anything. Theresa and Randy gave us a lot of good tips about what to do and what to see. They provided us with umbrellas and torches for the night tour to the volcano . I would give 6 stars if possible.
