Grandma's House with a few twists.
.
I have for the immediate future decided to host only Extended Stay guests for periods of a 14 day minimum and up to a Three-month maximum cottage rental.
CURRENTLY (04/30/2020) There is a STRICT STATE MANDATED MANDATORY IN HOUSE ISOLATION QUARANTINE for ALL of Hawaii.
Presently this is NOT A GOOD TIME at all to visit Hawaii.
POLICE are actively arresting Any Visitors for Any violations of quarantine for the entire state.
I will update any changes the State of Hawaii initiates.

Dear Guests,
Sometime sooner than later we will emerge from quarantine and a very different world will be waiting for us.
We all must learn all over again how we function in our world.
Paramount in this is offering a home to guests with high levels of rigorous disinfecting as an everyday way of life.
Airbnb and the CDC are offering hosts education of in-depth cleaning and disinfecting protocols.
Even Prior to COVID The cottage operates three Levoit Carbon Hepa filters running throughout the cottage. These really help. control odors, spores to mold and dust and mildew, and germs.
There are also Two dehumidifiers ( air moisture removal, which also operate with air cleaning filters )
The cottage maintains a 50-55% constant humidity environment.

Hosting for just a few days at a time would be overwhelming, at least initially.
Perhaps in the future, this can change but not at this juncture.
As we prepare to emerge back out into our world we all know and love and miss, we will all have re-discover a very different world and our places and behaviors upon her.
It is change and change is often difficult at the beginning.
I do have faith that we all will adapt and emerge very fond of our precious and simple everyday freedoms.
In many ways, life will be what we make of it.
This can be a good thing filled with new opportunities and new decisions about how we choose to live and who we are, and how we choose to live our lives going forward.
Airbnb working together with the CDC (Center for Disease Control) has laid out "new" cleaning regimens and preparations for hosts to incorporate into their individual operations for the health and safety of our guests.
I applaud their efforts.
It is time for reflection and change.

Intimate, eclectic, at times eccentric, romantic and whimsical Upcountry Volcano Village Mountain Cottage.
I treat my guests as I myself would hope to be treated while out in the world traveling.
This is Your vacation and Your special time.

As your host at the cottage I want to make you feel comfortable, well kept, and at home while for the most part remaining invisible unless requested.
The cottage is Not a 'pack them in like sardines' rental to produce a maximum rental income.
It has two bedrooms, a large living room, 1 1/2 bathrooms, a wonderful and well-equipped kitchen, and a private forest deck.
There is room to roam and you won't be stepping over futons, pull out couches, or tripping over your luggage or one another.
The entire private cottage space is yours.
The cottage has a maximum capacity for four guests.

Living in a Native Hawaiian Rain Forest that is located at the 4,000-foot summit elevation of Mt. Kilauea and Halemaumau Crater has its challenges on air quality both inside and out. Volcano is beautiful beyond compare, but you have to work at cleaning / treating the air a bit. You don't need to unduly "Fear" the air terribly, but it is, at any rate, a good and sensible thing to consider when visiting Volcano. The cottage is well equipped to keep these assorted elements under control.
Thankfully most of the time we have our Trade Winds which take much of this to the South and out to sea. The rain forest is by definition, a Wet environment. Moisture, Mold, and Mildew can present problems as well. The cottage has three Levoit Carbon Hepa filters running throughout the cottage. These really help. control all of the mentioned elements from volcanic gas, odors, spores to mold and dust and mildew, and germs.
There are also Two dehumidifiers ( air moisture removal, which also operate with air cleaning filters )
One is dedicated solely to the bathroom area. Dehumidifiers are essential in Volcano to keep a constant cottage humidity at a healthy comfortable 50% - 60%. There is a very nice built-in heater / Electric Fireplace which is clean, efficient, cozy, charming, and easy to operate. The beds are both equipped with heated Sunbeam mattress pads which are wonderful, cozy, and warm. Top that with memory foam and heavy 200-gram Flannel Sheets and you get some real mountain comfort through the nights.
A bit of a step back in time, the cottage is adorned with a beautiful and interesting blend of Early American Folk & Impressionist Art, 19th c. photography, fine vintage floral and avian embroidery compositions, and a wealth of otherworldly curiosities from times past.

After exploring the Volcanoes National Park you can, at your will and leisure, come home ... plug into our tech-saturated world to your heart's content OR be Bold and dare to opt-out for a while and just enjoy the simpler pleasures of life that the lush mountain rain forest and its chattering, happy native bird inhabitants provide.

The cottage is well stocked with many quality Ravensburg Jig Saw puzzles as well as many family-oriented word and card games for fun evenings at home around the fireplace.
There is also a large and diverse island oriented library of many books on Big Island, Hiking, Birds, Fishes, Shells, and Tropical Flowers.

The Kitchen area is extremely well appointed and it is entirely possible to produce home-cooked or baked gourmet dishes if one is inclined.
The Kitchen is equipped with a wonderful KitchenAid Mixer.
There is a complete diverse assortment of Corning Amber Vision cookware as well as the more traditional cast iron and ceramic ware.
If you know how to cook or bake well, this kitchen will live up to your needs and abilities.
There are fine Old English Bone China antique dishes, teacups, and such to serve your creations upon.
There is also a wealth of specialty cookbooks in the cottage for inspiration.
The ever-ready & willing waffle maker with fixings & French Press coffee maker make easing into your Volcano mornings simple and pleasurable. Fresh whole coffee beans, a variety of teas, lots of fresh island spring / deep well water are always provided for guests.


A creative, private, and unusual mountain haven. The cottage offers 1200 square feet of quiet, room to roam open space with a high vaulted open living room clear story ceiling. The second-floor master bedroom offers a cozy Cal King memory foam topped bed individually heated on both sides with exceptional linens ( Tribeca 200 gram Heavy Flannel Sheets which are truly heavenly )
There is an additional second smaller bedroom upstairs, with nice cozy memory foam topped and heated, flannel sheeted Full-Size bed.
There is also a small water closet upstairs for convenient evening needs.
This is a 1/2 Bathroom with toilet and sink.

The cottage is equipped with a Graco Pack 'n Play On the Go Travel Playard, Go Green with mattress, sheets and waterproof mattress pad, safety gates & electrical plug covers.

INSIDE the cottage is a NON SMOKING environment. (smoking is not a problem on the OUTSIDE deck area) There is a light daily house cleaning with a changing of bed linens and towels if desired.
High-Speed WiFi & Ethernet internet access is provided.

Both bedrooms and the Living Room have internet-enabled televisions offering guests Netflix, Music & Web Access.( 3 total)

A private open-air deck outfitted with Lounge chairs is nestled under the canopy of the secluded rainforest of Hapu'u Tree Ferns, Magnolia, Camellia, and a host of other native plants amidst the sounds of songbirds and at times our Native I'o hawks soaring overhead.

The cottage is vintage 1940's Hawaii and has been endowed with an eclectic, creative blend of materials in a Victorian / Deco manner. Located in the original historic section of Volcano Village, the cottage is about one mile from the entry to Volcanoes National Park. One could easily spend two full days exploring this very large park and still not see it all.

To be clear, the cottage is listed as having two bathrooms.

There are in reality 1 1/2 bathrooms

A full bath and shower downstairs and a handy 1/2 bathroom water closet ( toilet and small sink ) upstairs with the bedrooms for evening needs.
