The Bamboo Cottage is a spacious and airy 650 square foot stand-alone one-bedroom cottage. It has an open floor plan, large windows, and tropical island décor throughout. The rattan and bamboo furnishings, warm wood, and Hawaiian print fabrics offer a true taste of island living.
It comfortably sleeps five with a queen sleigh bed in the bedroom, a queen sofa bed in the lounge, and French doors that open to a screened lanai (sunroom) with a punee (twin day bed).
The cottage provides tropical flowers, a hand towel, paper towels, dish soap and a new sponge in the kitchen. Freshly laundered linens on the beds. Clean bath towels, wash cloths, a bath mat and hand soap in the bathroom. As well as beach towels and a day cooler with blue ice for your outings.
The kitchen features pendant lighting over granite tiled countertops, a full size refrigerator, double sink, four-burner gas cook-top and oven. The kitchen is complete with pots/pans, dishware and cutlery. It has everything you need to prepare a nice meal in your hale (home) away from home, including an outdoor BBQ for your grilling pleasure.
You'll sink into the oversized Tommy Bahama designer furniture that welcomes you into the lounge, elegantly complimented by wicker and wood accent tables. A bamboo cabinet with receding doors houses the 30” flat-screen/DVD player with basic satellite TV on the far wall, and large windows look out to the manicured landscape.
You'll find a very comfortable queen sleigh bed in the bedroom, paired with a nightstand and lamp on either side. The generous closet and built-in shelving provide plenty of space to unpack. A large oval mirror decorates the bedroom's back door and opens up to the private bamboo-partitioned outdoor shower.
The private bathroom is spacious with an ample glass shower, toilet, pedestal sink, large mirror, and plenty of bamboo shelving. As noted above, there is a second (outdoor) shower that is great for rinsing off after a fun day at the beach to prevent tracking sand into the cottage.
The Bamboo Cottage was named after the beautifully hand sculpted bamboo bas-relief that decorate the walls of the screened lanai. Your view is swaying coconut trees over a partial ocean view, and you can hear the waves in the distance as you relax on the punee (day bed) reading your favorite book. The dining table in the lanai is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your coffee in the morning, and a nice meal with a glass of wine after an adventure filled day.
The cottage is wheelchair accessible by a cement ramp, it has three-foot doorways that are threshold free, and a large private outdoor shower with hot water, all wheelchair friendly.
Our lovely Bamboo Cottage is fully solar powered and built to peacefully co-exist with its natural surroundings.

We recommend taking a stroll to the beautiful coastal bay across the street. Kalani Oceanside Retreat is 1/3 mile, and Kehena Black Sand Beach is 1 mile. A short drive in either direction will take you to thermal ponds at Ahalanui Park and Isaac Hale Park, where you can soak the day away, the Kapoho Tidepools, where you will find the best snorkeling on the island, and new black sand beaches in Kalapana where you can explore the new volcanic coastline.

We rented Bamboo Cottage for a week during March break. We arrived to a beautiful well maintained property. The location was easy to find and was even better than the pictures on the site. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. We hardly ever saw them but when we needed them they were available. They gave us helpful tips on where to go and made us feel very welcome. We were impressed by thier commitment to recycling and sustainable practices. The cottage is roomy. We were 3 people staying there, our son could have chosen to sleep on the pull out couch but preferred to sleep in the bed on the screened porch and we loved the comfortable bed in the spacious bedroom. After every day out exploring the shoreline we would come back and enjoy making dinner in the fully equipped kitchen and making use of the BBQ provided for our use. Overall an excellent experience. We will deffinetly return. It was perfect for the family and We would love to go there for a romantic retreat some day as well. If you are looking for quiet and well appointed in a beautiful location away from tourists this is the place for you.

my sister and I stayed here 5 days and 4 nights and it is heaven. A short walk down a road lined with flowers and trees to the ocean. To just sit and listen to wonderful sounds of life all around you. Quiet, and super nice Palm cottage. There is soo much to go see and experience, but mostly you just want to sit and enjoy the property at Lava Lane Cottages. Thanks for a memory of the heart.
