We spent 2 nights at the Aloha Moon Cottage. The cottage is well furnished and spacious, with a wrap-around deck where we enjoyed the two excellent breakfasts that John brought us. There's a foot massager in the room, for those coming back with weary feet, and some interesting books in the kitchen (I recommend the book titled Volcano by Hongo, although I only read a few snippets).
Lotus Gardens is very close to the center of Volcano (definitely eat at Thai Thai, and if you're brave, ask for your food to be "Thai Hot", it was delicious!). It's also just a 10 minute drive to VNP, so we were even able to drive to Jagger Museum at midnight to gaze at the red glow of the crater.
My last morning at the cottage John lent me a handheld vacuum cleaner so I could get the alternating spots of white and black sand out of our rental 4WD.
