Welcome to Volcano Places, where we offer vacation-rental accommodations in Volcano Village on the “Big Island” of Hawai‘i.
Volcano Places offers a variety of vacation rental accommodations in Volcano, on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. While our lodgings are not technically Bed & Breakfasts, the warmth of our cottages and hostess, Kathryn, will make you feel right at home.
Each of our cottages is unique, like our cozy but roomy studio cottage, Kate’s Volcano Cottage, Kahi Malu and our newest cottage, an exceptional studio, Laukapu Forest Cottage. Our rentals all include a complete kitchen and more privacy than in most of the B&Bs available in Volcano, Hawai‘i. We take bookings for the Volcano Bungalow, but the Bungalow owner now hosts and manages it.

Don't stay just one night!
We do not take one-night bookings, except for last-minute inquiries. Need lodgings for tonight? Give us a call. For next week? That might work, if one of our cottages is open for just that one night; do call us. Any further out than that, though, and we would probably refer you to one of the traditional B&Bs in Volcano or to Kilauea Lodge & Restaurant, which is run like a hotel, and which would certainly take a one-night reservation.
Staying one night in a location does not give you "two days" there; it gives you two travel days with some sightseeing en route and at your destination, between moving luggage in on your arrival day, then out of your lodgings place on your departure day. Given the size of Hawai‘i Island (4,028 square miles/10,432 square kilometers), it takes two-and-a-half to three hours to drive from one side to the other. If you decide to visit Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park (HVNP), and you drive over from Kona or Waikoloa, you could visit the Park before checking in, then, after dropping off your luggage, you could have dinner. You could drive down Chain of Craters Road to the ocean in forty minutes, not counting sightseeing and hiking stops. That night, you could drive up to the Kīlauea summit area to view, from outside Jaggar Museum, the reflective glow in the gas-and-steam cloud rising from Kīlauea’s summit eruption (it is cool to chilly, up there, year-round, so, do pack some warm clothes), a lava lake generally well below the floor of the Halema‘uma‘u pit crater. The next morning you would have to pack up and leave. You could perhaps visit the Park again, but with luggage in your car and with a long drive ahead of you to the other side of the island.
If you stay two nights in Volcano, that would give you one full day in which to explore the Park and do a hike, or two; we certainly take two-night bookings. A three-night stay would give you a second full day, allowing more time to do additional hikes, see more of the Park, or, perhaps, Hilo town and the waterfalls along the Hāmākua Coast, or the Ka‘ū District, with its black and green sand beaches and coffee farms, or lower Puna, the main town in which, Pāhala, mostly avoided being run over by lava flows from Kīlauea’s East Rift Zone (ERZ) vent, Pu‘u ‘Ō'ō, in 2014; currently, the ERZ flows are approachable from the unpaved emergency road, on rented bicycles, then, by hiking up the pali (“steep hill” in Hawaiian). Volcano Village is well located to explore the east side of the island. Most of our guests who have stayed two nights have wished they had stayed for three. We reduce our double-occupancy rates for reservations of three-or-more nights.
