CLIPPED COMMENTS--- If I was to design a dream vacation home, I would copy the Maile Tree House down to the smallest detail // Unforgettable stay // WOW! Absolutely spectacular // Couldn't have picked a more Magical place to stay.. decor remarkably creative, the bedding & furniture very cozy, and the garden was beautiful with hidden surprises through-out. // Words can't express it // The pictures will never do it justice // After your place the other one we rented on the beach in Oahu couldn't compete!.. truly don't know how you can rent it to strangers // The house is just perfect, down to every last detail // Warm wood tones, cushy furniture, modern ammenities.. with whimsical touches..a place to truly relax // My husband asked what the best part of our trip was, I said the tree house, he said, 'That's exactly what I was going to say!'..quite a statement for him.. I miss it already // I continue to think/ daydream about the house // Fantastic experience, exceeded all our.....

There is an option of another 2 person Suite downstairs that does not have ALL the amenities of the Treehouse, but is a charming, bright and lovely alternative. Please view our personal web site for details. Aloha, and enjoy your holiday, wherever you go!!

MORE CLIPPED GUEST COMMENTS: We found the attention to detail in every nook and cranny of the house warm, inviting and cozy. // The most personable accommodation we have ever enjoyed // Most memorable one yet (15th anniv.) // Slice of Heaven // Our new favorite place // First time I've stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and my back hasn't hurt in the morning // I still sigh every time I think about our wonderful time there // Amazing bed // Architects spend careers trying to create what we call “sense of place”.. you have created a powerful sense of place // If this were my house, I would never be able to rent it out-wondering if you have a background in hospitality..maybe the Four Seasons..everything is so thought out // An inspiring place // Wonderful Gardens!.. Mysterious places to discover // Very romantic // Amazing job // Warm and beautiful // A wonderful vision // Unique house with distinct touches. Clever design // What creativity // Scenery gorgeous- the layout perfect // Magical, beautiful, peaceful & perfec

HOUSE DESCRIPTION: The upstairs Studio, Maile Treehouse--was custom built to bring the Rainforest in with it's abundance of large windows. There is a view from every room and in all directions, wood construction throughout and custom everything! The built in fireplace is two sided with a rotating flat screen above so that you can view both TV and fireplace from the living room, bedroom, and the lava rock surrounded jacuzzi tub. The tub is set in a bay window just steps away from the cozy Select Comfort Bed, with cozier still-- heated mattress pads. These are among the many touches we have added to make your stay as luxurious and delightful as possible. Tall ceilings, rich Brazilian cherry floors, built in bookcases and cabinetry, skylights..., built with our hearts as well as our hands--for the purpose of passing on a feeling and experience of Volcano that will be as warm and memorable for you, as it is to us.

Me ke Aloha Pumehana,

Leslie and Michael Hess

Fabulous place, stunningly beautiful, loved it all. What a perfect way to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary!

Your home is perfect.  The attention to detail is wonderful.  Sure got a kick out of the different 'finds' during our stay. This home was part of making our second Honeymoon remarkable.

This was truly one of the nicest experiences in our life. Being able to 'truly get away' along side all the lovely touches you have thought about made this a truly amazing and fantastic stay. We will be back next year!

ALOHA! We hope you'll enjoy our home.

Leslie Hess purchased this cottage in 2005

Having lived here over 30 years, Volcano remains our favorite getaway.. so finally in 2003 after searching to buy a getaway that we could also use as a vacation rental.. it became clear we needed to build what we wanted. We spent 4 years of weekends driving up from Waimea, to hand clear and hand build our labor of love. We finished July of 2007! Everyone who has stayed has felt the care and enthusiasm that we have put into our version of the perfect getway.

HIGHLIGHT OF OUR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a trip to the Hawaiian Islands and by far the highlight of our vacation was our time spent at Maile Tree House. Since returning, we have raved about this beautiful, warm and cosy home to anyone who will listen.

We were thrilled to discover something new about the house each day and loved uncovering all the little 'surprises'. The vases of fresh flowers in every room were an especially nice touch.

Although the pictures on the website are lovely, they cannot possibly capture the uniqueness of this perfect piece of paradise. It has to be seen to be believed!

Thank you so much Leslie and Michael for not only your warm hospitality but for the wonderful lasting memories from our time at Maile Tree House.

What a treat to stay here! We thoroughly enjoyed eating breakfast on the lanai, listening to the bird song, wandering through the garden admiring flowers and detecting whimsey, and seeing all the beautiful aesthetic touches throughout the house. This place lives up to its reputation.

HAWAIIAN HONEYMOON HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
A gorgeous house! The most difficult decisions we faced involved having to balance our time between staying at the house (relaxing in the beautiful garden, peaceful jacuzzi tub, comfortable bed) and venturing out to explore the area around the house. The house had all the touches of home - well stocked kitchen, travel books, mixed CDs. Too many things to mention!

The location was perfect for exploring the nearby Volcanoes National Park. It felt completely secluded and private, like we were the only ones in the jungle :) Also worth noting - we had a small issue with the batteries in the smoke alarm causing it to beep on the high vaulted ceilings (completely unavoidable of course). One quick call to Leslie and about 15 minutes later, someone was at the house to take care of it. Awesome service!

All the details and the effort they put in to this home make it truly one of a kind! Thank you!!

SO UNIQUE, SO INDIVIDUAL, SO DELIGHTFUL

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place the Maile Treehouse is - we LOVED this home. Although we didn't meet Leslie and Michael, their creativity, sense of humour and generosity shone throughout. So often we smiled at one another when we spotted another of their little personal touches "look at this" or "look at that"! When we arrived we said "there are no curtains!" Then that night we awoke for just a few wonderful minutes, we looked at one another and said to one another "wow - we get it!” The full moon flooded in and we felt almost part of the tropical rainforest. The sights, smells and sounds were so wonderfully vibrant all around us. The owners have provided well for their guests physical, practical and spiritual needs.... we marvelled at all the many small, but wonderful touches we kept coming across. They've thought of everything and our stay was definitely exceptional. We will be cherishing happy memories of our short stay here for many years to come.

TREEHOUSE SANCTUARY

  • 5 of 5
This incredible treetop home is wonderfully located in the lush forest just a few minutes from the Volcano National Park entrance. The home is a perfect balance of clean, comfortable, and practical with romantic, spiritual and whimsical. It is perfectly situated as a base for excursions to the natural wonders which surround. The town of Volcano (a couple minutes away) is a peaceful little town with a some good restaurants (Thai & Kilauea Lodge should not be missed)

LUXURY AND WHIMSY LOOKING OUT ON THE TREETOPS

  • 5 of 5
This home was even more beautiful, luxurious, and peaceful than we imagined from the pictures online, and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The love and care the owners have for the Maile Treehouse was apparent from the moment we entered. We have never stayed in a home that is so well appointed. The continual discovery of surprises, both practical and whimsical, made this a magical stay. We especially loved all the music provided to create the perfect soundtrack for this hideaway and the book of activity suggestions. We would highly recommend their home to anyone!
