Better than expected! What a beautiful spot. It was clean and well organized. A helpful handbook and accommodations were greatly appreciated . Loved the touch of coffee and popcorn ! It felt like home. A great weekend getaway with a beautiful lani. I will recommend to all my Kona friends and guests at our hotel.

Super cute, great setting, super clean with everything you need. Volcano is remote and great if you want to spend days at the National Park. I didn't care for the host emailing 3 times to remind me to read her rules, then to have a reminder to read her rules at the front door, then to have them on the counter too. It was very unwelcoming in our opinion, especially to wake up to a surveillance camera on the front porch in the morning. It took away our comfort and removed the private feel. We truly considered not staying, but decided to only sleep there.

Response from Leslie:
YIKES... the camera is a DUMMY CAMERA!... just meant as a deterrent and a comfort. I've never had a comment about it before, so I will add that to our guest book info so noone has that big brother feeling again. I wish this guest had called so they could have enjoyed that great lanai. I myself send ONE EMAIL with the reminder to read the first pages of our guest book. There are at least two 'automatic' messages sent from the site which evidently must include the 'house rules', which includes ' to read the first pages of our guest book.' Perhaps the auto send is personalized to make it appear I sent it myself? These couple pages have important house information, numbers and reservation agreement reminders. Sooo many people never read any of the emails/notices/reservation agreement, so we do have it at the house also... and still I get calls for the information thats in there. I am sorry its repetitive for those that pay attention to everything.. I can see that would be annoying. We are hoping to catch folks at least once :-). Its all meant to be helpful and prevent problems. So very happy everything else there was a winner for them.. Leslie

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!

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.

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.
