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.

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!
