Village where restaurants, galleries, a winery, golf course can
all be found. World Famous Hawaii Volcano National Park is 2
miles away, a must for your trip to the Big Island.

The Big Island offers many unforgettable experiences.

a giant lava tube, hike through unforgettable rain
forests, steaming craters, or see what Pu'u O'o is

jetted tub, over looking the beautiful rainforest just
outside your window. Exactly what you need after your
day of exploration on the Big Island. You'll be
rejuvenated and ready for more adventures.

Lazy Lehua Cottage was lovingly built between 2003- 2004.
The idea for Lazy Lehua Cottage was to make it a special
place for guests to stay, dream, and regroup. Focus was
on putting as much character, charm and soul in to it,
and making it a whimsical, beautiful place for everyone
to enjoy. Trees were hand cut and property cleared only
enough to put the Lazy Lehua Cottage in its perfect place.
The beautiful Ohia trees that unfortunately had to be cut
down were used for the posts on the lanais giving it,
its whimsical cottage look that blends in well with the
rain forest. In keeping in the spirit of whimsical,
some of the furniture throughout the cottage was hand
crafted; coffee table, bar top, headboard on bed, using
all local, exotic, and native woods. We know you'll
feel the magical spirit of the house when you stay here.

Enjoy - Lazy Lehua Cottage.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Our goal and our motto 'always make things better'. This is not just for our family, but for everyone that comes to stay at our little slice of paradise @ the Lazy Lehua Cottage. We love the weather, the Volcano community and the people in the community.

                      Why the Owner Chose Volcano:
                      Have you seen the pictures? The 3 things we hear from our guests at Lazy Lehua Cottage most, 'the pictures don't do it justice', 'we wish we would have stayed longer' and 'The Lazy Lehua Cottage was our favorite accommodations'. It's proximity to Hawaii Volcano National Park, the cool temperatures, and the flora and fauna. Absolutely breathtaking!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      TAT & GET taxes are already included in the nightly rate. We don't have an extra per person charge.
