OUR CUSTOM GUEST GUIDE offers 4 different day trips (could not do it ALL in 4 days) for you to chose your interests... each 'direction' lists many sites in the order you will come upon them, how to get there, descriptions... Also includes restaurant recommendations, detailed hike information, out of the way places and more. Local events and an ONGOING calendar for special things that happen in the area like Ranger led hikes, Hawaiiana events and the like. It's very common for the Park and Art Center to have events that are a real treat.

MENEHUNE [meh-neh-HOO-neh]-- Hawaii’s legendary mystical and shy forest dwellers are small in size at about two feet high, although some are only six inches high. They live in the deep forests and hidden valleys of the Hawaiian Islands, far from the eyes of normal humans. According to legend they are very industrious master builders that use their great strength to accomplish mighty feats of engineering and construction overnight.

In that spirit, we welcome you to 'MENEHUNE MANSIONS'... which to the UNMYSTICAL HUMAN, would appear to be A VERY SWEET FOREST COTTAGE.

Minutes to Hawaii Volcano National Park and tucked away in the uniquely beautiful forest of desirable Volcano Village.... you will come home to a tropical, clean, fresh, warm and cozy hideaway... for a menehune mystical price

About Leslie Hess

We have so enjoyed our second home and very well received vacation rental Maile Treehouse which is also in Volcano Village.

We thought we would like to offer a more budgeted alternative but with an upscale experience... It has been a true delight to help make a vacation special for people... we hope we can do that for even more travelers now....

Leslie Hess purchased this cottage in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sept. 23

Oh... My... Gosh! What a lovely place. Everything was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay here. So quiet and homey. The binder you've made was great, so much time was put into it, and it was very helpful. So close to the park and a short drive

to Hilo. Our original honeymoon was cancelled because of hurricane Sandy- it was a blessing in disguise as we would have never gotten to experience this 'home away from home'.

How do I describe this cottage in the rainforest?  One word "wow!"  We had a wonderful stay here!  The little touches you have put into the place are awesome! Love the owl in the tree, all the little notes around, the decor is beautiful and the visitor

book was so helpful!  We loved visiting the park w/ the hot spring pool of water.  We would recommend this cottage to all our friends and we hope to return in the future!  We had a very relaxing stay and wish we could stay forever! ps the bed was

very comfortable!

Aloha at the Menehune Mansion!

  • 5 of 5

We immediately fell in love with the property driving in and before stepping foot in the door. Walking in, we were amazed at the size, cleanliness and the cute aloha touches placed around the cottage. We definitely want to visit again and the next time for a longer period of time! Aloha, the Campbell Family

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

The cottage in Volcano was perfect for our stay. The home is comfortable and in an excellent location; close to Volcano National Park and some incredible hiking. The grounds are gorgeous and you feel very secluded. It was great to wake up to the sounds of birds and the wind. I would highly recommend this cottage . We will be back one day

Cozy, comfy cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently had a delightful two night stay in this cozy cottage. It is surrounded by a dense, tropical rain forest. Despite it being rather isolated, it was easy to find from the directions given to us by the owner Leslie. The cottage was very comfortable for the two of us. The bed was super comfortable so I slept really, really well. There is something about the cool, moist air at Volcano. The cottage has a nice gas fireplace that felt really nice as the rain fell outside on one of the nights that we were there. Bring warm clothes for your stay in the cool climate of Volcano!

We have stayed in the Volcano Village area in the past because it provides such easy access to the many interesting things in Volcano National Park. Plus it is so quiet in this area, far from the bustle of the city. Don't miss the restaurant Ohelo, located just a few minutes from the cottage.
