  • Totally lives up to the description, truly "a find". Very cute and well maintained cottage in the tropical forest by Volcano. My wife and I spent two nights there exploring and hiking and it was absolutely perfect.

  • Warm and cozy and very convenient to the entrance to the park. Leslie provided everything we needed for our stay - including a crib and highchair. Her orientation book had great hike and restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed being surrounded by rainforest and watching the wild pheasants and other endemic birds from the front porch.

  • Leslie and Michael were great hosts! It was our first time in the Big Island and they made everything from booking reservations to ensuring that we enjoyed our stay very seamless. Leslie was very timely with responding back when making reservations that we did not regret asking for another night’s stay. She was very thorough, provided directions and easy to follow instructions, which certainly made being in an unfamiliar place more comforting.
    The Menehune Mansions are perfectly placed in Volcano. Minutes away from the Hawai’i Volcano National Park and close to nearby restaurants and stores made it the best location for our stay. Leslie and Michael kindly put together a welcome binder that included a ton of information about the place, things to do and simply getting around. This binder was a great resource and helped us get around Volcano very easily. They both seemed to know the place very well and made us feel we can reach them at any time.
    Our cottage was pristine! Extremely well kept, it smelled great, was very clean and organized. It is the perfect size for a couple spending time in Volcano. We enjoyed seeing the Menehunes scattered in our cottage and the whole place was nicely decorated. Leslie and Michael did a fantastic job anticipating everything their guest would need from the basic amenities to a heated blanket (oh so nice). We certainly felt very at home at the Menehune Mansions. We had a fabulous time and would definitely stay here again! Thanks Leslie and Michael!

  • Located in a really peaceful place, Leslie's is a great cottage to spend some time ! Our stay was only two nights, but we really enjoyed it. Large house for two people, just like you're inside the forest ;), nice lanai, kitchen & bathroom ... everything is just great and perfectly clean. It's pretty amazing to find such a calm place while you're at less than 10 minutes from the Kilauea !
    We also found a guide book with informations about activities from Hilo to South Point, it was a good add-on to what we have scheduled !

  • I would highly recommend this beautiful place. The nature is in front of de house and it feels very comfortable to stay there. The place is beautifully decorated and has everything your heart could desire. It is really "Magical!.... Wow!..... What a Find!!!" :-)

  • Wonderfully quiet, verdant setting with all creature comforts met beautifully. And fun reading material! Thoughtfully decorated and supplied with local hike and event info. Must return soon!

  • Great little place right next to Volcano National Park. Comfortable bed and includes everything you need for a nice stay. Be sure to stop at supermarket in Hilo to stock up on supplies as you won't find too much at general stores nearby.

    The location is perfect for exploring the park (Kilauea Iki trail is a great little 4 mile trail that takes you through rain forest and directly across a crater floor) and if you like wine, check out Volcano Winery for some tastings. Not too far from Hilo or Black Sand Beach to you can see those two areas without too much difficulty either.

  • Very nice cottage, clean, spacious, comfortable, silent. Big kitchen, awesome lanai and garden. Perfect location to explore Volcano National Park.

  • Absolutely the best place out of 5 visited during our Hawaii stay. The host put a lot of effort so you feel taken care of. We wish we could stay longer. This was a magical one and our little one was in love with it as we are and we will recall it forever!

  • This is a lovely cottage in a very quiet location. The cottage is spotless, well equipped (appliances and crockery in excellence condition) and very very comfortable. It is ideally located for exploring the volcano and area. I would recommend it to others whole heartedly.

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.
