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.

Terrific stay in Volcano!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this charming cottage in early April. It was so nicely appointed and so cozy. The outdoor area was perfect for enjoying the birds and pheasants. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Charming and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this home within minutes to Volcanoes National Park. We only stayed one night, but it was so relaxing and peaceful. The home is well maintained and decorated beautifully! Very charming! The beds were super comfy too. We enjoyed the pheasants that followed us around the gardens.

The owner was very responsive and quick to answer questions. We could tell they take pride in their home and its guests. Would highly recommend this vacation rental home!

Volcano National Park

Beautiful, clean and comfortable. Quiet, except for the delightful sounds of birds. The grounds are lovely, and the inside has all the amenities you could want.
