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

It was adorable. Very quiet and very private.
We enjoyed four days in Volcano Village and made numerous trips back to the National Park. The cottage was only minutes away from the entrance and very convenient for all of our exploring on the southeast end of the island. We had everything we needed and it was very clean. Plenty of room for the two of us. We were very comfortable.
It was exactly as avertised.
It clean and neat. Very close to the volcano. It was very isolated.
Aloha.. I'd just like to comment on 'isolated'
We are in Volcano Village.. stores, 4+ restaurants, art gallery, gas stations, laundrymat .. are one mile of neighborhood, (not empty space) from the house. Its one more mile or less to the Park Entrance. We have two cottages on our property and neighbors all along our street and 3 sides of us, though the adjoining neighbors aren't very noticeable. I myself would not consider that isolated, though its is one lane and unlit within the rainforest (beautiful) environment.. maybe that makes it feel isolated. Its a safe a beautiful neighborhood to walk as well. Hope that is clearer.. Leslie

Beautiful, Peaceful Stay
We are kama’aina who just wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We spent two nights here and enjoyed every minute of it! The house was perfect for what we needed, well kept, clean and quaint! We appreciated the peaceful area and absolutely loved just being caught up in all the sounds of nature around us. We spent the majority of our time sitting out on the lanai, listening to the birds and getting caught up without our electronics. We left the house only once as we just wanted to relax and recharge our bodies and minds. Thank you Leslie! We will definitely be back again when we feel the need for a staycation!
Great place to stay near the volcanoes
A wonderful stay with our family! We had everything we needed and we were very comfortable. Beautiful, surroundings. Very green and lush. The cottage was very well appointed and bed was comfortable. Internet and Netflix worked great.
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!
