Property description

CLIPPED COMMENTS--- If I was to design a dream vacation home, I would copy the Maile Tree House down to the smallest detail // Unforgettable stay // WOW! Absolutely spectacular // Couldn't have picked a more Magical place to stay.. decor remarkably creative, the bedding & furniture very cozy, and the garden was beautiful with hidden surprises through-out. // Words can't express it // The pictures will never do it justice // After your place the other one we rented on the beach in Oahu couldn't compete!.. truly don't know how you can rent it to strangers // The house is just perfect, down to every last detail // Warm wood tones, cushy furniture, modern ammenities.. with whimsical touches..a place to truly relax // My husband asked what the best part of our trip was, I said the tree house, he said, 'That's exactly what I was going to say!'..quite a statement for him.. I miss it already // I continue to think/ daydream about the house // Fantastic experience, exceeded all our.....

There is an option of another 2 person Suite downstairs that does not have ALL the amenities of the Treehouse, but is a charming, bright and lovely alternative. Please view our personal web site for details. Aloha, and enjoy your holiday, wherever you go!!

MORE CLIPPED GUEST COMMENTS: We found the attention to detail in every nook and cranny of the house warm, inviting and cozy. // The most personable accommodation we have ever enjoyed // Most memorable one yet (15th anniv.) // Slice of Heaven // Our new favorite place // First time I've stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and my back hasn't hurt in the morning // I still sigh every time I think about our wonderful time there // Amazing bed // Architects spend careers trying to create what we call “sense of place”.. you have created a powerful sense of place // If this were my house, I would never be able to rent it out-wondering if you have a background in hospitality..maybe the Four Seasons..everything is so thought out // An inspiring place // Wonderful Gardens!.. Mysterious places to discover // Very romantic // Amazing job // Warm and beautiful // A wonderful vision // Unique house with distinct touches. Clever design // What creativity // Scenery gorgeous- the layout perfect // Magical, beautiful, peaceful & perfec

HOUSE DESCRIPTION: The upstairs Studio, Maile Treehouse--was custom built to bring the Rainforest in with it's abundance of large windows. There is a view from every room and in all directions, wood construction throughout and custom everything! The built in fireplace is two sided with a rotating flat screen above so that you can view both TV and fireplace from the living room, bedroom, and the lava rock surrounded jacuzzi tub. The tub is set in a bay window just steps away from the cozy Select Comfort Bed, with cozier still-- heated mattress pads. These are among the many touches we have added to make your stay as luxurious and delightful as possible. Tall ceilings, rich Brazilian cherry floors, built in bookcases and cabinetry, skylights..., built with our hearts as well as our hands--for the purpose of passing on a feeling and experience of Volcano that will be as warm and memorable for you, as it is to us.
Me ke Aloha Pumehana,
Leslie and Michael Hess

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: ALOHA! We hope you'll enjoy our home.

Why the Owner Chose Volcano Village (Volcano, HI, USA):
Having lived here over 30 years, Volcano remains our favorite getaway.. so finally in 2003 after searching to buy a getaway that we could also use as a vacation rental.. it became clear we needed to build what we wanted. We spent 4 years of weekends driving up from Waimea, to hand clear and hand build our labor of love. We finished July of 2007! Everyone who has stayed has felt the care and enthusiasm that we have put into our version of the perfect getway.
