Laukapu Forest Cottage (LFC) is a spacious studio, vacation-rental cottage, a handcrafted "Work of Heart". LFC has a well-equipped kitchen and a private bathroom, with a tiled shower. Watch cable TV or connect to the smart LCD TV, make local calls on the phone, and enjoy high-speed Wi-Fi. The “back-front” porch is approached from the 70-foot-/21-meter-long covered “Walkway of the 1,000 Peaces".

Der Wohnraum

LFC is very private, with the entry porch at the back of the structure, with a covered walkway leading up to that. The front porch is just one step above the forest floor, so, guests can step out under the forest canopy to watch birds or just look at the upland rain forest that surrounds the cottage.

Zugang für Gäste

Guests make themselves "at home" and have access to the entire space, which has one main room, with a cal-king bed with a memory-foam topper and a mattress warming pad and waterproof cover, and all linens and blanket and comforter, the armchairs and low table, the entertainment center, the banquette (for dining), the desk alcove, beside the bed, an armoire and a closet, one on each side of the bed, and the adjacent, private bathroom, which has a tiled shower, a medicine cabinet, stocked with first-aid items, shampoo and conditioner, electric hair blow-dryer, and, below the sink, a cabinet with extra paper supplies and a trash can with liner, and, hung on the wall, a shelving unit with towel hanging bars. There are fresh bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths, hanging, and extra towels, folded on the top shelf. The covered "back-front" porch, which has a table and two benches and a large armchair, offers indoor-outdoor space, for relaxing or eating meals.
The only area not accessible for guests, is the utility porch, where we store cleaning supplies and tools.

Interaktion mit Gästen

LFC is hosted by Kathryn and Kenneth, who live in the adjacent house, though Kenneth is usually working on a house-building or furniture building project. He built LFC, including all the built-in furnishing and the benches, table, and armchair on the back-front porch. Kathryn will greet you, after you have checked in, unless it's after dark, in which case, she will give you a phone tour of the cottage and arrange to meet you the next morning. She is available, if you have questions or requests, during your stay. Let her know if you are running low on supplies (the kitchen is furnished with less perishable breakfast foods, like hot and cold cereals, granolas, etc.) or if your trash or recycle or compost containers get full (she'll remove them for you). She does not disturb guests' privacy but wants to make sure they feel welcomed and are comfortable and aware of all the amenities they will have in the cottage.

Weitere wichtige Infos

Residents of Volcano Village actively participate in keeping exterior lighting low, so, the only street lights in the village are at the highway, where Wright Road and Haunani Road begin and go up through the village. Consequently, the roads are dark at night. On the smaller lanes, feral cows sometimes walk at night (really!), so, if guests are driving up to see the summit's underground lava lake, after dark, it would be a good idea to drive slowly and alertly through the village.
During Winter months, this cottage, at about 3860-foot/1176-meter elevation, gets cool, even chilly (sometimes as low as 35ºF/2ºC), so, guests can enjoy the infrared heater (the ceiling fan pushes the warm air back down and circulates it) and the mattress warming pad on the cal-king bed.

Kathryn's cottage is amazing. The setting is wonderful. Kathryn is very helpful and sends great information for your stay. She equips the cottage with little comforts like tea, coffee, cereal, slippers and head lamps for night hikes at Volcanoes National Park. My husband really enjoyed the Wifi and TV package. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay and would highly recommend this cottage.

We spent two nights at LFC but I wish we could have stayed longer! We were on our belated honeymoon and looked for a clean, private and authentic experience, so definitely not just any place to spend the nights at, and we sure found the best option possible! Given the very short list of night life activities in volcano village, we happily stayed in the cabin enjoying our impeccable wifi access and cable. Sipping wine on the porch, we listened to the jungle and indulged ourselves in the serenity of big island nights! If you appreciate quality time you will love this place! Every word in the description is true! The cabin is a true " work of heart" surrounded by all the sounds, colors and views of what you'd expect a jungle to offer! Spacious, Spotless clean and fully equipped, LFC was as luxe and convenient as our resort was on the other side of the island! I wish I could take the cal king bed with me! You would want to take a mental picture of all the details of this place! Last but not least, Kathryn! She is the cutest most helpful host! You could tell she loves taking care of her guests and this is not just a job for her. She gave us maps and books and ideas on what to do, where to go to eat etc. Make sure you try Thai Thai, we ate both nights here and have no regrets! We honestly loved everything here and recommend this place %100. You won't find ANY place like this in the village! We can't wait to spend more nights here in the future.

Antwort von Kathryn:
Aloha Brad, Mahalo (Thanks) for your lovely review. I hope you can return, perhaps for an anniversary stay, as I enjoyed meeting and talking with you, and you were considerate and thoughtful guests. I am glad you both enjoyed your belated honeymoon and your stay in Laukapu Forest Cottage! I would like to offer one clarification, in response to your review: Volcano Village is in the upland rain forest, rather than in a jungle. As for night life, most of our guests go up to Jaggar Museum to watch the glow of the summit eruption's vent, the lava lake in which sometimes gets high enough to be viewed from Jaggar Museum. Staying "home" and enjoying the peace and quiet of the cottage was a good choice, though. Mahalo hou a me ä hui hou aku (Thanks again and together again soon)! Kathryn

I have lived in Volcano Village for over thirty-two years, but first came to Volcano in 1953, as a child, and visited Volcano, with my family, every few years, during the Summertime. I moved to Volcano in 1983. We've been offering vacation-rental lodgings, in our own cottages, for just over twenty years.
We host our cottages, making them homes-away-from-home, well equipped and stocked with the less perishable breakfast foods, with movies and documentaries about HVNP on DVD, with books and maps about the island and HVNP. I greet guests, after they check in, and give them a tour of their cottage and tell them about the HVNP and the east side of the island, to maximize their touring opportunities here.
We live across from the cottages' property and are available if guests have questions or requests, but we respect their privacy and do not knock on their cottage door, once they've been greeted and settled in, unless they ask for advice or aid.
