My wife and I sayed here for 3 nights and highly recommend it. Wonderful, cosy and perfect place to stay when in the Vocano National Park area. I concur with the other reviews on what a special B&B this is. Both the location, nestled within the trees and tall ferns and other fauna, and the tasteful design and comfort provide a calming setting for your stay. All the necessities and more are here for you to relax and enjoy your stay.
Add tasty and varied breakfasts, deliverd by John to your door (what a variety of fruits included!), a nice modern coffee/tea unit, fridge, mini kitchen and more, with a visit to welcome your day from the purring kitty, as you step out on the large wrap around porch (lanai) to take in the fresh air and sparkling sun. You won't be dissapointed staying here and John is both welcoming and helpful. I seldom write reviews but was motivated to spread the word about staying here and at such a relaxing place.
You're a mile from the National Park, close to the historic Kileauea Lodge, which I highly recommend for lunch or dinner; close to the Volcano Garden Arts Center selling wonderful and tasteful local crafts which also has a very tasty vegetarian lunch which you can eat inside or in the garden that is also full of items and art objects, and well worth visiting before you head to the Park. I'd also recommend inside the Park the Volcano Arts Center, which has items from over 300 artists of all types and price ranges. It's a non-profit and the staff are very knowledgeable about Hawaiian history, culture and arts. Seeing the crater after the sun goes down (Park stays open all night) is also fun since the white smoke turns red from the glow of the lava below.
I can assure you you'll like the Lotus Garden Cottages, their comfort and peaceful setting, and chatting with John who's a very interesting host and was a pleasure to meet. My wife and I loved it, especially having stayed at a resort on the West Coast (Mauna Lani) before arriving for a more intimate experience here. You won't be dissapointed and will be well taken care of!!! Don't delay.
