Big Island Volcano/Hilo Accomodations

HELP! LAST MINUTE SCHEDULE CHANGE!

We will be in Maui for 5 nights and the Big Island for 9 nights this June. We are supposed to stay on the Kona side of the Big Island and now I am having second thoughts and would like some last minute lodging recommendations on the volcano side of the island.

Any reccommendations for a family of 6?

Should I stay in Hilo or Volcano?

Thanks.

It would help if you gave the reason you are having second thoughts about staying in Kona. Is it because you'd like to stay closer to Volcanoes Natl Park? Are you thinking about splitting your time between the two sides of the island?

Country Goose B&B in Volcano Village has several houses they also rent, and a few of them have several bedrooms.

9 nights is a long time to spend on the volcano side of the island. Splitting your time between the 2 sides would be ideal.

I recommend Art& Orchids B&B on the volcano side. It's about 20mins. from the volcano, about 20 mins from the beach and would be great for a few nights stay. There's a fully equipped kitchen and common room for the guest's use... ideal for families. There are only 3 rooms (one is a very large family room for 4 poss.5 if you have a young child). Rooms are less than $100 a night and breakfast is included (it's all homemade/grown in the back yard including the coffee and delicious).

The weather is generally better on the Kona side (less rain) and you might want to consider that.

Sorry if I wasn't clear -- as of right now I am staying in Kona for 9 nights but I wanted to spend 3 on the volcano side making my stay in Kona 6 nights. I am in need of some accomodation suggestions for a family of 6.

Thanks for all your help!

Several of them will sleep at least 6!

My Island B&B has homes available which might accommodate your family of 6. They have a website (can't remember address)but can be easily googled. Good luck.
