About the property

Volcano, Hawaii

Have the ultimate Hawaiian getaway by staying at this charming vacation rental studio cottage in Volcano. Nestled in a lush rainforest just 6 miles from Volcano National Park, this picturesque cottage will allow you to experience everything Volcano has to offer! 

With 450 square feet of beautifully appointed living space, this alluring studio cottage is a great size for a couple or small family out for a memorable Hawaiian retreat. From the moment you first arrive, you’ll fall in love with this breathtaking setting. A variety of native plants, trees, and rainforest vegetation surround the property, providing plenty of privacy and tranquility. Inside, the cottage feels very warm and inviting, featuring cozy furnishings, tasteful decor, and large windows that let in glorious natural light and provide views of Ohia trees and Hapu’u ferns. After an exciting day exploring the area, come home to prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Experience outdoor living to the fullest by spending time out on the generously-sized lanai that spans the entire length of the cottage - it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a tropical cocktail while listening to the sounds of the rainforest and pleasant birdsong. 

You simply can’t beat this home's prime location! From here, you’ll be within 6 miles from Volcano National Park, where you can enjoy scenic hikes, nature walks, and access a variety of spectacular sights, from lava fields to forested bird sanctuaries. You’ll love touring through the Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, which are situated directly across the street from the cottage. Volcano Village is just 5 miles away and offers art galleries, restaurants, wineries, 2 general stores, and a Sunday farmers market. On days when you’d prefer water-based activities, venture to Punal’u Black Sand Beach Park, a unique destination and favorite resting spot for protected green sea turtles. Hilo, the second-largest city on the island, is a 23-mile drive from the cottage and boasts several quaint shops along the bayfront. While you’re in the area, make sure to visit Kau’u Coffee Mill, as well as the plantation town of Pahala.

Great hosts, wonderful place & perfect proximity to the National Park. We were up very early to see the volcano glow & to go birding. If you are looking to sleep in, know that a rooster kicks in well before dawn.

Lovely little cottage, super clean and beautifully decorated!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect base camp for our many adventures in and around Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The cottage is comfortable, and beautifully designed, with everything you need. Fresh flowers were a nice touch! Thank you Carter and Elaine!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay for 4 days in this cozy cottage. The owners gave superbly detailed instructions and every little thing seemed to have thought put into it. It's very peaceful and gives one easy access to everything from Hilo to Punalu'U Black Sand beach. Get supplies from a grocery store in Hilo or Kona before coming in as local stores simply won't do. The orchid nursery next door is pretty amazing.

Peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fern Cottage was cozy and comfortable. It had everything we needed to explore the Volcano area. We spent several days hiking the National Park and evenings stargazing. You can't beat this view of the Milky Way! We would definitely recommend this location to family and friends. Hope to make a trip back soon!

Amazing Volcanoes stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Fern Cottage for 3 days and had the loveliest time! Our hosts had thought of every amenity, including coffee and a local favorite, macadamia nuts! The cottage itself was furnished well -- bed was comfortable and we didn't lack for anything! The location could not have been more convenient as it was just minutes away from Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park as well as Volcano Village which had restaurants and a general store. Carter and Elaine are very knowledgeable about the area and have lots of recommendations for things to do, see and eat. We would not hesitate to recommend Fern Cottage to friends and hope to make our way back to the Big Island sometime soon! Mahalo nui loa!

Perfect accommodation next to Volcanoes National Park

  • 5 of 5

Carter and Elaine have remodeled a former caretaker's cottage into a beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed rental. They've considered their guests' every need. It's indeed everything all the other reviewers have said. Perfect location, comes with everything you need and then some. If we return to the area, we'll want to stay here again.
