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.
Our goal and 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. From our guests reviews, I'd say we are doing an excellent job always making things better. We love the weather, the Volcano community and the awesome people in the Volcano community.
Joyce - Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 2008
Have you seen the pictures? The 3 things we hear most from our guests at Lazy Lehua Cottage, (1)"The pictures don't do it justice, it's much better in person", (2) "We wish we would have stayed longer" and (3) "The Lazy Lehua Cottage was our favorite accommodations during our stay on the Big Island". Come see for yourself!
*We don't have an extra/pp charge up to 4 guests. You don't pay more for up to 4 guests.
* Our proximity to Hawaii Volcano National Park, a 2 short miles to the entrance. Cool temperatures, and the flora and fauna, rain forest. Absolutely breathtaking!
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Lazy Lehua Cottage and wished we could have had more time there. It's a great home base for exploring Volcanoes Nat'l Park as well as the rest of the Puna district. The fire was very cozy during the rainy, cool evenings. It was also nice to be so close to Volcano Village where we wound up eating every night.
The house was very private and tranquil. Our children (4 and 6) enjoyed playing the games at the house and we didn't turn on the tv sets even once. The kitchen was nicely stocked, too. We would definitely go back to Lazy Lehua the next time we're visiting the Big Island.
Loved waking up to the sun shining through the many bedroom windows. Looking out and seeing giant tree ferns... green everywhere! Wonderful songs of the birds in the rain forest. Cozy gas fireplace stoves were so convenient after a rainy day hike in Midnovember. Although I never minded any rain. It is just so gorgous here! Fantastic double sized jacuzzi bathtub in masterbath (it does takes a little while to fill it properly). Compact but complete kitchen made it possible for us to prepare most of our meals right there (restaurants are another option). Farmers markets in Volcano Village on Sunday (EARLY! Get there by 7 AM as most clear out by 9) or Wednesday and Saturdays in Hilo. The produce and other foods are scruptious and the farmers are an absolute delight (My husband and I are Marin County farmers market junkies! But the Big Island farmers rock!). If you are like me and you don't like crowds, the Lazy Lehua Cottage is perfect: serene surroundings, artistic decor abounds in this gem of a vacation place. Laying in the blue hammock chair on the front lanai you will wish your vacation would never end. And you are so close to the many destinations you most definenitely don't want to miss. P.S.: Do rent a 4-Wheel Drive (not just an All-Wheel) if you are adventurous and like to do some exploring as that is required for Waipio Valley and some other areas... P.P.S.: Good healthfood store in Hilo ("Abundant Life") -- Ideal to visit on your way from the airport to the cottage (approx. 30minutes from Volcano Village). Great healthfood store in Pahua ("Island Natural Market"), slightly different direction but also about 1/2hr distance from the cottage.
My husband and I stayed here in Jan 2017, and it was nothing short of amazing! The cottage was exactly a described and was extremely neat and clean. Every detail was well though out. The furniture was unique, the bed was comfy and the kitchen was well stocked. The location was perfect for exploring the Volcano National Park and the town of Volcano. The cottage itself was pretty secluded, which made the stay comfy and peaceful. It does get pretty chilly at night, so the fireplaces were a perfect way to warm up.
Overall, this was one of the best places I have ever stayed and I would definitely love to come back!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Lazy Lehua cottage. It is secluded and private but very close to Volcano National Park. Our daughters loved the bunkbeds, and we had plenty of space for four people. The house is well stocked and charmingly decorated. Relaxing in the jacuzzi tub at night with the windows open to hear the rain was a highlight. We had a lot of rain but the fireplaces heated up the rooms quickly. It would have been nice to have a clothes dryer but that would not keep us from staying here again in a heartbeat. I would advise doing the majority of your grocery shopping before arriving in Volcano, the two "stores" in town are extremely minimal, although there are a variety of good restaurants. It is also an easy drive from here to Hilo and to Puna (where we visited the Kapoho tide pools, a definite highlight). Thanks for a great experience!
We had a wonderful 2 night stay before we headed to Kona side I wished we could have stayed longer. The setting is so cozy and comfortable. We had 2 adults and 2 kids and had plenty of room. Perfect location for visiting Volcanoes National Park. We went during the day and the night to see the glow. The cottage had lots of extras. We didn't cook much at all but the hot coco, popcorn and chocolates were appreciated. I slept so good both nights really comfortable beds and bedding and the Jacuzzi tub is magical in that setting. I could go on and on but you won't be disappointed staying here. Thanks for providing a lovely place and accurate listing. Would love to come back!
This was our second time to stay at the Lazy Lehua cottage. This is a really cute and whimsical cottage in a fern forest. It’s very close to VNP making it a nice base camp for exploring the park.
We were there in March and the nights and mornings were cold so we used the fireplaces and heaters to warm the place up. It rained every night we were there so no star gazing on this trip.
The birds start singing about 6 AM for your wake up call, but with the time difference that didn’t seem too early. We made breakfast each morning and would pack a lunch to eat in the park.
The kitchen has most things you need to prepare meals, but there’s no dishwasher for afterwards. With 2 of us, it wasn’t that big of a deal. If you want to prepare meals, I would suggest to do your grocery shopping before arriving in Volcano. We flew into Hilo and stopped at the KTA on the way for supplies. We loved the secluded feeling of the neighborhood.
They have put in bunk beds if you are traveling with kids. Joyce was easy to work with and sent emails with detailed instructions before arriving so it makes things very easy.
When we decide to visit Volcano again, we will certainly want to stay here again.
My husband and I stayed for a full week in October. The cottage was perfect for us, as it is close to the Volcano National Park, where we spent several days visiting and hiking. It is set in the rain forest, which is an enchanting experience in itself, especially when one lives in the city. The cottage itself is perfect for two persons: I particularly enjoyed the space and light in the bedroom upstairs, as well as the fully equiped kitchen. Some days were cool and damp so we appreciated the gas heaters. The front lanai has wonderful light in the morning, so it was great to have breakfast outdoor on the warmer days.
Thanks for the personal touches like the chocolates, the tourist pamphlets and the books on Hawaii. Thanks also for the fact that the pictures and the description correspond to reality. My only small suggestion to the owner would be to provide a few drawers in the bedroom to put clothes away; it would be more practical when staying for a week.
Overall, I fully recommend.
