“Awesome Escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

person found this review helpful

Incredibly quiet and quaint cottage, 10 minutes from Volcanoes National Park. Owner and property manager were both extremely friendly and helpful, going out of their way to ensure our stay was everything we had hoped for, and then some. This is a large cottage, located in a neighborhood outside of Volcano, Hawaii but it is so peaceful, you would never know anyone else was within 100 miles. The place is very well maintained, clean and beautiful. It's proximity to the park made it the ideal place for us to stay during our trip to the east side of the Big Island. It has all the appliances, dishes, bedding, etc, that you need with plenty of room for families. The only regret I have about staying at this place is that we didn't book more time -- the same regret many of the past visitors have expressed.

“Private and cozy rainforest retreat”

We just had a great Christmas stay for our family of four. The girls (7 and10) loved the lanais, swings, luxurious bathrooms, heavenly green foliage, and privacy and so did we. The cottage is very convenient to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park and to restaurants, shops in Volcano Village. This was one of the highlights of our first-time trip to Hawai'i -- highly recommended for couples or families with 1 or 2 children. Must be able to manage stairs. Loved it!

“Outstanding!”

We stayed here for 3 nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage is in the middle of a rainforest setting. Lush surroundings. Three lanais to to sit on, relax, or eat on. The decor, furnishings are right out of a magazine! Everything is well done, from CDs for the stereo system, to books, and DVDs for the tv. The bed is so big and comfortable with great bedding and a electric blanket if needed. The ensuite bath has a jetted tub which you'll need after hiking in Volcano National Park(short ride). Another bath downstairs has a shower with plenty of plush towels. One of the lanais is off the bedroom. The kitchen has everything you'll need if you decide to cook. Excellent restaurants are right in Volcano Village. I only wish I could have taken this cottage to our next stop, Kauai. This is a great value and you have to stay here if you are looking for a place on the Hilo side of the island! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Lovely little cottage tucked away from the world, had everything you needed for a stay in Volcano. We had a lovely time exploring the national park and loved coming home to know we could put on the fire and have a soak in the spa.

“Absolutely Amazing”

Wow, what a property! I had booked this property without showing my husband photos, he went in while I sat in the car as we were a little bit early and he was going to make sure it was ready before we lugged everything in . Well he came back to the car so excited that he felt like he should carry me over the threshold like we were on our honeymoon ( we have been married 30 years so this would have been hilarious). We stayed 5 nights and everything was just amazing with everything imaginable supplied just in case you forgot something. The Jacuzzi was the best thing especially after some serious hiking. The only small thing to note was getting use to all the unusual sounds that seem to go on during the night (we got use to it after a couple of nights) . We are going to recommend this place to everyone, would make a lovely honeymoon destination !!!

“Complete Relaxation”

We stayed at the Lazy Lehua Cottage during our "Babymoon" holiday to Hawaii. This place is paradise. It is so charming, well laid out, and relaxing - just wow! It feels somewhat secluded in the forest and it was so enjoyable to turn on the fireplaces and listen to the raindrops & the birds sing. It is a bit cooler here due to the high altitude so bring some warm clothes. The kitchen was fully stocked with all cookware you could need & the fridge/pantry even had a few items in it which was handy. It is located very close to Volcano Park & it did not take us long to get to Hilo either.

After a few days in Honolulu, we flew to Big Island to this beutiful cottage. After all the noise and activity of Honolulu, it was almost too quiet there, we can only hear the birds. Wow, what a change. The cottage is fully equiped, complete kitchen, CD's and DVD's, propanevstove, jet tub an close to Volcano National park.
