Lavaly “Blue” Cottage

Bedrooms 1
Space 400 sq ft
Property type studio


About the property

This lovely cottage is off grid, with all the amenities you would want in your own home. Solar power and catchment water, but has potable water too, for cooking and drinking. Jerry Craven 808-464-5933, is our recommendation for a professionally guided hike. The ocean entry is quite safe and we recommend Kalapana Cultural Tours, Ikaika Marzo and first mate and cousin Andrew are quite informative and knowledgable for all island information. The custom kitchen, allows you to enjoy a little less than rustic feel, while you are cooking and a large movie selection is available when you are ready to wind down. There is also a nice grill on the deck. We also have added a brand new bed, sleeper sofa & Security door to enjoy the evening breeze.

Perfect volcano experience

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Blue House! A very unique place with the flowing lava about 2 miles away but in full view from the house at night. The house is very cute and comfortable. The new sofa and bed are great. It's a tiny house but has a full kitchen and bath. Kimberly was very helpful as well. Very few places in the world will give you this kind of experience! If you have a sense of adventure - Book It!

Fun location, basic cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute little one-room cottage built on stilts on a lava field. The bed is a futon with a fairly squeaky metal frame. There is a blowup bed, with bedding provided. There is an ample towel supply, and they are luxurious, soft, and thick! There is a cute gecko that hides when you are home. The shower had a strong leak while I was there. The owner replied in less than a day when I reported it, so I expect that has been repaired.

With the influx of lavaflow visitors, this specific area is booming. When I was there in January some kind of building was going up right next-door, and directly in the line of ocean sight. The next door neighbor to the right is friendly and active.

The best part of this rental is the proximity to the flow. At night you can see it glowing from the lanai! The cottage is stocked with headlamps, which are a necessity for night walks. When I was there, the walk took about an hour and 20 minutes from the cottage to the flow, up the hill. It is amazing!! Take it slow in the dark. Many people fell and cut themselves on the sharp lava.

Owner's Response: Liz, Thank you for your review. You are correct, the leak was repaired immediately and a new, queen size bed, has replaced the futon, for better comfort. It was great having you. Hope to see you again. Mahalo

Most amazing location to stay on big island.

  • 4 of 5

To actually stay in the lava field and have the active flow almost in front of your door step (50mins hike) is a great experience. The cottage is simple and and has all basic necessities, like described. If you have a sensitive back or considerable weight we would propose to put the mattresses on the floor because the convertible sofa is not made for supporting you in this regard

Owner's Response: Thank you for the information on the convertible sofa bed. My husband and I have slept on the convertible sofa and added an additional tempur-pedic mattress. We found it comfortable for us, but I want our guests to completely enjoy their stay so a new bed is on the way. Mahalo for your feedback Kai.

Incroyable ! Amazing ! Génial <3

  • 5 of 5

Le grand studio qu'abrite la maison bleue est situé sur la coulée de lave, dans un lieu tout à fait extraordinaire où seuls les résidents peuvent accéder en voiture ! Un magnifique paysage à 360 ° ! En plus de l'emplacement, il est cosi, bien décoré et confortable. Rien n'y manque ! J'ai pris plaisir à utiliser la cuisine avec vue sur la lave et l'océan.

Bravo Kimberley de nous offrir l'occasion de cette expérience unique dont le souvenir restera à vie.
