This Menehune Mansion is on a beautiful 1/2 acre, that is shared with another identical Mansion, but privately situated. Fireplace, King Bedroom, 1 roomy Bathroom, Full Kitchen with Breakfast Nook, Living Room with Queen pull out sofa, Large Covered Lanai,and Carport. HIGH CHAIR AND PACK N PLAY available with notice. W/D available for stays of 4 or more nights.

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!

Perfect way to visit Volcano National Park

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful experience staying at this cottage and visiting the park. It was clean, warm and inviting. Though a bit off the beaten path, the directions were easy to follow. Two of the nights we were there, we returned to the park to view the glowing lava pool in Kilauea Crater. The nearby Kilauea Lodge serves a superb dinner. Excellent communication with the owner.

Perfect accommodation in Volcano Village

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is in excellent condition, and offers everything you need. We stayed for three nights - which was the perfect time to explore and discover the natural wonders of the Volcanoes National Park (it's only a 5 minute drive away).

Note: Be aware that the washer may only be used if you stay 4 or more nights (as described in the house rules).

Wonderful find!

  • 5 of 5
I was searching for a great place to stay at Volcano, and am so happy to have found Menehune Mansions. My husband and I have been traveling to Hawaii for 25 years, and have stayed various places in The Volcano area. We had not been terribly impressed with any of our previous accommodations , until now! The cottage was so comfortable, immaculately clean, incredibly well equipped with every possible convenience right at hand, and for an unbelievable price. We stayed two nights and cooked all meals at the cottage, and found all dishware, glasses, wine opener, utensils to be of high quality. We are both super fussy about the comfort of the bed due to back issues, and this one was so comfy with a foam topper, and cozy bedding. Leslie as more than kind and accommodating from reservation to check out, when we thought we had left a shirt behind and she checked right away for us (we found it in our luggage later). We can't wait to come back!

Charming

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at Menehune, very close to VNP. Everything was supplied which was great when we arrived back after days of hiking and sightseeing. We will recommend this place to others - it is comfortable and quiet, cosy and clean.

Clean, basic place to stay near Volcano National Park

  • 2 of 5
We spent two nights in this cottage, which we found to be clean and comfortable, but lacking in some amenities. We had hoped to spend more time cooking our own meals (Restaurants are lacking in nearby Volcano Village,) but found this to be very difficult due to the few kitchen utensils and poor quality cooking supplies available. We were disappointed that there were not basic spices or oil to cook a morning egg, for instance. The bedroom was clean and comfortable, the cottage was warm at night, and everything was otherwise very cozy (lots of cute Children's books and toys tucked away to discover!) (On another note, We highly recommend the weekend farmer's market in Volcano village, where we found plenty of fresh, reasonably priced produce to make some killer sandwiches!)

Owner's Response: Helpful input always appreciated.. thank you. I have tried to find out specifically what made meal making difficult but have not gotten an answer to remedy their situation. Having only comments otherwise, I'm not sure what do. We do go for the uncluttered.. but do not want to have anything lacking!

In our arrival letter we inform our guests what we provide-
s/p, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, sugars, creamers... We like the clean zen feeling of not storing or presenting opened and used items in the cabinets/refridge and will probably keep with that.. sorry.

If you are not wanting to cook, I would not worry!! There are 4 dinner restaurants and more available for breakfast and lunch.. all listed in the guestbook at the house with recommendations and descriptions.
We also give directions to fresh produce before your arrival as our general stores do lack that.

We do try to prepare you in our home description and arrival letter for these things.
