Don't miss the volcanic features of the Big Island of Hawaii, including the new lava flowing into the ocean creating fireworks at dawn and dusk.

I'm a writer living in paradise, inspired by the volcanic energy of the Big Island. My cottage was built and decorated by an artist/architect friend and I love sharing this beautiful rental with guests from around the world. Everyone loves it and the nearby volcanic adventures.
