Exactly as described. We had a short stay but loved the location - so close to the park. Quiet area. Easy to find with the instructions. We had everything we needed in the cottage.

This rental has everything you need to explore the windward side of the island. The cottage was very clean and well stocked. I would definitely stay here again.

“We loved it”

The Menehune Mansion was our nicest accommodation in Hawaii. It’s a small cottage with a carport and a lanai. It’s nicely decorated with a living room, eat-in kitchen, bedroom and large bath. It was very clean and comfortable--great bed!--and the owners provided lots of useful information about local resources. We had a delicious breakfast at the Kilauea Lodge and an elegant anniversary dinner at Volcano House thanks to their recommendations. The location is quiet and private, yet only a few minutes from the national park. It was nice to be close enough to visit Halema’uma’u in the morning and again at night to see the dramatic colors. Hawaii is full of surprises – I never imagined that a town perched on the rim of an active volcano could be so lush and tropical! We appreciated having wifi available. There’s a second little cottage on the property that we didn’t visit, but it might be fun for a larger group to reserve both buildings. The owners were easy to contact and helpful. Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Wonderful location and wonderful accommodations. I wish that our family could have stayed longer. The house is well kept and well maintained. I highly recommend this volcanic rainforest get away. 5 minutes and your at the main gate of Volcanoes National Park. This made it very convenient for our family to slip over to the park at bedtime and view the glow of the volcano crater up close from Jagger Museum.

“Wow! Loved this place!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This was exactly what I expected and more from the previous reviews. Cute, quaint, clean, feels like home, The drive through the rainforest is enchanting (glad we did it the first time during daylight). I wish we had been there during better weather to enjoy the outdoor furniture, but the dreary weather during our stay also enhanced the the inside experience with the cozy fireplace stove.

We stayed here for three wonderful nights. The cottage was perfect. It was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. It was an central location where we could visit the volcano, black sand beaches, Pahoa area and Hilo. The location was very private and quiet. We would definitely come back and would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the area. It is great value for your dollar!!

“The perfect tropical cottage - quiet, clean, lovely and comfortable!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This cottage is excellent. From the outside design to the windows and bathroom, it is clean, modern, decorated nicely, and probably the most quiet place I have ever stayed in Hawaii. The contact, Leslie, is extremely helpful. The booklet she leaves in the cottage is helpful and detailed. The location is on a tropical back road about five minutes from the main entrance to Volcanoes National Park. Our stay was comfortable, private and a perfect get away. This is a great deal, and highly recommended.
