We really loved the Menehune Mansion. It was spotless and well apointed. The jungle setting was incredible. Leslie, the host, was sweet and accomating.

Great location near the National Park, also provides good base to visit both north and south on the Big Island. My wife and I enjoyed our stay!

Staying at the menehune mansions in Volcano was one of the best travel experiences I've had. The communication with Leslie and her hospitality was first class as she answered all our questions and made our arrival and check in extremely easy. The area was so quite and peaceful that we really enjoyed coming back to relax after a day of hiking in the park. Thank you Leslie for a truly wonderful getaway!

Leslie's place is a great jumping off point for Volcano National Park and other sights in Puna and Kau. It's very clean, and has everything you can think of for a very relaxing stay. It's very quiet and the mornings greet you with the forest birds singing. We would gladly stay here again when we return to Volcano.

Lovely, cozy, clean space in a lovely neighborhood filled with birdsong. Close to great, family friendly restaurants as well as the national park. Great spot to use as a base to explore. Thoughtful host who let us keep to ourselves. Perfect for the four of us (two adults and two kids).

Due a scheduling error on my part, we arrived a day earlier than our reservation. Upon contacting Leslie, she saw to it that the cabin was promptly cleaned up from the previous occupants (who fortunately had departed). We could not have asked for a better response to my mistake. The cabin was exactly as described, perfect for our needs, and very well located for our sightseeing in the Park. We would stay with Leslie again.

A very clean and spacious place but off the beaten path.

Response from Leslie:
Schuyler was a pleasure to have.. we are located in the artist community of Volcano Village, which is one mile from the entrance to Volcanoes National Park. We are about another mile into the neighborhood of Volcano Village which is mostly one lane roads in the rain forest, beautiful for walks from your front door and minutes to drive into the main part of the Village restaurants, gallery and other shops. A hui hou, Leslie

My father was in the military so growing up I moved often, having gone to six different schools.
After I graduated high school I myself moved to Hawaii, and have lived here 35yrs, so this is home. I worked mostly in the 5star resorts in either the tennis or boating industries, and the last 15 years have been in my 'career' of massage therapy. I think my growing up in different places/countries, employment in the hospitality industry, having designed and physically built a few homes, and now working in the healthcare... has all brought me to this enjoyed venture of providing something a bit more than expected for the visitor who has gone to so much expense and trouble to appreciate this island. I'm blessed with a husband who joins me in this effort and helps to make it possible.
