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

Blissful nature retreat with all the amenities.

Good thought was put into the design and furniture in this little slice of serenity. Just a few minutes from great restaurant's and Volcano National Park but very private. Highly recommend.

Peaceful secluded cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay- loved hearing all the birds outside the Mansion. The place was very spacious for 2 people and one of the cleanest places we've been. We had great food at the Kilauea Lodge for two breakfasts, dinner at Ohelo and Thai Thai are also great, then the volcano at night. Wow the Stars up there are equally amazing.

Enchanted cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the Mahana mansion. The little mansion is beautiful with all its nice Menehunes. Our 5-year old loved this place so much that he didn't want to leave. Will come back again.

It is a charming cottage with great attention to detail. Very responsive owner/manager. In many ways it was hard to leave this place ;-)

If you stay in the back cottage (Mahana mansion) you will have more privacy etc. but it is hard to back out of the driveway by yourself even during the day without a second person to guide you. But that added to the sense of adventure :-)

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

This was a magical place so close to Volcano National Park! The hostess has thought of everything to have an enjoyable stay with detailed directions, a beautiful place to stay and lots of helpful tips on what to do and see in the area. Such a cute place and very quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

Leslie

Response from you: Just have to add part of your personal comment to me.... "Leslie, thank for sharing such a special place with us. It was our favorite place of our entire stay..... "
