About MARGARET SMITH PIERCE

Mike and I are 30 year residents of the Big Island. We have always loved the Volcano area and spent a lot of time camping and staying at different B&B's in the area. We purchased Pukeawe Cottage in 2001 and then within the next few years we were able to purchase the lots on both sides of our house giving us almost an acre of land. Much of the land was over taken by invasive species and we have worked hard to clear the land and replant with natives and non invasive plants. We feel very proud of what we have created here and hope our guests enjoy the park like surroundings.

MARGARET SMITH PIERCE purchased this house in 2001

Why MARGARET SMITH PIERCE chose Volcano

We chose to buy our future retirement home in this neighborhood because it is secluded yet close to all the things we enjoy. Hiking and biking and working in our gardens are things we enjoy when we visit our home in Volcano and we look forward to doing more of it when we are able to retire. We are both very busy small business owners in Kona so we cherise all the time that we have at Pukeawe Cottage.

What makes this house unique

You will be visited daily by the birds that drop in to be fed. We provide the food so

you can enjoy their presence.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The cottage was so great! I didn't want to go home! Cozy fire, beautiful stairs and rooms. We went bike riding, ate some Thai food & got a souvenir from Volcano. Thanks so much!

It is so peaceful.

If you were wanting to stay near Volcano National Park, I would highly recommend staying at this cottage. It was only a few minute drive to the park entrance which made going back for night viewing very convenient.

Perfect stay. The cottage was very cozy, clean, and had everything we needed! Easy drive to Nat Park

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My number one concern anywhere is cleanliness, and the cottage was spotless. The rooms and beds were very comfortable as was the living room area. Adorable birds greet you in the morning, even in the rain. Very easy access to the national park, which was perfect because we elected to check out the lava pool at night. Our only complaint was that we only had time to stay one night!
