What makes the Lazy Lehua Cottage extra special?: Lazy Lehua Cottage was lovingly finished in 2005. 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 were cut down were used for the posts on the lanais giving it, its whimsical cottage look that blends in well with the forest. In keeping in the spirit of whimsical, some of the furniture throughout the cottage has been 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.
