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
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
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

Our family had a great stay in this perfect little cabin tucked away in amongst the trees. Cute, clean, tidy and nicely decorated - it was a great stop over location for exploring the Volcano area!
We had a great time staying at this property. We came with a 10 month old baby. Leslie arranged for a highchair and a pack and play for us! The property was clean, cozy, and fun.
Thanks for all of the information for traveling in the area.
This was an ideal spot from which to explore Volcanoes National Park, in Volcano Village near all the local amenities. Leslie was very communicative and provided excellent, clear directions for finding and checking in to the house. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and spacious, with a nice kitchen and breakfast nook. Perfect for traveling with a toddler.
Very quiet and private. The owners were receptive to any needs that cropped up. We enjoyed watching birds from the porch and waking to nothing but bird song. It was a perfect place to refuel after a day of hiking and exploring.
The cottage was cozy and VERY clean. Looks just like the pictures! It had everything you might need to cook a meal at home and enjoy it outside on the porch under the warm sun. It's a short distance from Volcanoes National Park to come back and forth if you want to do short hikes and come back to eat at home. We suggest that you get all your groceries in Hilo prior to driving to Volcano if you want more selection. Otherwise, there's a general store nearby. I would definitely stay here again and would also recommend this cottage to friends and family! We'll miss waking up to the beautiful foliage and birds chirping. Mahalo Leslie for your wonderful hospitality!!!
Menehune Mansions is in beautiful Volcano Village - 1 mile to the entrance of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and 26miles from Hilo and Hilo International Airport!
