This Menehune Mansion is on a beautiful 1/2 acre, that is shared with another identical Mansion, but privately situated. 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

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: 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....
