Kurtistown Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom 1 Bath Sleeps 4 Private location only 15 minutes from Volcano National
The Lehunani cottage is located near Kurtistown in Hilo. Headed south bound, going towards Volcano National Park at about 2000 feet of elevation, located at the 18 mile marker. Lehuananai is a 2 story cottage nestled on a little hilltop surrounded by ohi’a trees filled with red lehua blossoms, white gingers and hapu’u ferns that are all native to our Big Island. It was built with lots of Aloha in 2008. You can feel the magical energy that surrounds Lehuanani. I’m so grateful and blessed to share this beautiful, tranquil cottage with others. Hawaiian style, sharing the Aloha with the world.

About Laura Gregory
Welcome to Lehuanani cottage!! Mahalo for choosing to stay at Lehuanani cottage. This property was passed on to me from my grandparents who struggled to pay monthly for it 40 years ago. I’m so blessed that I was given the gift to build a little cottage 6 years ago. Lehuanani is a very magical place to be. My goal was to build it and I lived in Lehuanani for 2 years. I then traveled around different parts of Asia. My hopes and dreams were that one day I would be able to share this amazing space with others so that they can enjoy the magic that I experience whenever I feel the need to replenish my manao (power).
Laura Gregory purchased this cottage in 1973
Why Laura Gregory chose Kurtistown
Here you are, surrounded by the ohi’a trees that are sacred to Pele, the goddess of fire. At different times of the year, the red Lehua blossom are full blossom and are very special to us Hawaiians. These are our plants of hula to be worn by the dancers and used to adorn them. As Hawaiians, it is customary to ask nature before picking and we only take a little from each tree. Never taking all and leaving nothing behind. Lehua is the flower of the Big Island and Lehuanani means beautiful flower.
