About Leslea

The property is just lush and clean. The neighbors....just cows....

Leslea purchased this villa in 2006

Why Leslea chose Mountain View

You will be surprised at the spacious, luxury, private accommodations for such a reasonable cost. The location is quite immediate to Akaka Falls, Hilo and the volcano. We loved the spa tub, overhead shower and double sinks after a long day of hiking and playing. Two full size beds, full closets, a partial kitchen and dining area made our stay very easy and comfortable. All organic produce grown on the property, teas, coffee, fresh massive papaya and homemade blueberry scones were an added delight.

What makes this villa unique

The location is ideal for seeing everything on the east side of the island, including volcano national park, lava viewing sites, black sand beach, and the waterfalls. In summary, we would highly recommend staying here; you are unlikely to find similar accommodations in the area, especially at this price.

Better than a 5 star hotel!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at three accommodations on the Big Island and this was the best and most economical place of all three! I selected this place predominantly for the favorable price, but this exceeded our expectations in every way possible:

- Leslea is so welcoming! Not only is she a great host, but a great person to get to know.

- The villa itself is very comfortable, spacious, and clean!

- Leslea has 2 friendly dogs, sheep, chickens, fruit trees, garden, etc. This is heaven for animal lovers!

- This is a true B&B in the sense that you can a fresh cooked delicious breakfast! Leslea is an amazing chef and it's evident she cooks with soul!

- You will hear chickens/roosters in the morning! Coming from LA/NY/Germany, this was refreshing so we loved this.

I can't say enough great things about Leslea's home! Highly recommend this and you will NOT regret staying here during your time in Big Island!

Best Place Ever

  • 5 of 5

I booked this as i surprise short break for my husband for our anniversary, i have to say mainly because of the price to start with as we were on a budget. But this place surpassed everything i thought we would get. It is amazing and turned into our favourite vacation rental ever. To start with its super easy to find and a great location, then you get there and meet Leslea and you just feel like you are meeting family, she is a wonderful person and perfect host. The the 'cabin' as they call it is the most beautiful, huge bungalow next to their house with a lovely lanai and views across there massive grounds and mountains. Everything looks new and its beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need and more. The bathroom was my favourite place, mainly because it has a jacuzzi bath!! Its huge too (big enough for my husband to do yoga in!!). And it is oh so quiet which is exactly what we needed!! Then there is the breakfast, how i miss those. Freshly squeezed juice, fruit 'starter', then a different hot entree everyday...omlettes, pancakes, eggs and rice. It was better than any restaurant for sure. I just dont know what else you would find at ANY price, never mind at this price. I would stay there again every time without hesitation. Close to all the lava, national parks, hot pools, hilo. Cant wait to see Leslea again soon, hopefully in England!!

Perfect place from which to explore the south and east parts of the Big Island.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. If you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful location close to Volcanos National Park, Hilo, and the southern slope of Mauna Loa in general, then this is the place for you.

The property covers 5 acres on a quiet rural road. The villa is about 950 square feet, completely separate from the main house, and equipped with a kitchen, dining area, bedroom/sitting room, and large washroom. The washroom has a nice walk in shower, a jacuzzi tub, and a 2 sink vanity. There is plenty of closet space. There are 2 sliding glass doors which open onto a lanai which is where you will likely have your breakfast daily. There is also a BBQ for the use of guests.

Our host, Leslea, cooked wonderful breakfasts each day, which were preceded with fresh fruit, and accompanied by fresh fruit juice. The eggs were provided by her own chickens and much of the fruit was picked from trees on the property....these meals carried us all through the day to dinner time!

We found the beds comfortable, the villa to be very well appointed, and in excellent condition. The elevation on the slope of the mountain ensured cooler night time temperatures which were very nice for sleeping.

Leslea herself is very warm, welcoming and enjoys meeting people from around the world. She is also happy to provide a wealth of information and insight about local attractions and activities.

We were very impressed overall, and will definitely return for another stay the next time we are on the Big Island.

Perfekte Unterkunft für den südlichen Teil der Insel

  • 5 of 5

Diese Unterkunft ist vom Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis auf Big Island unschlagbar. Das Bungalow ist sehr groß und geräumig und modern eingerichtet. Vor allem das Bad hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die beiden Betten sind äußerst bequem. Die Küche könnte größer sein, aber es hat an nichts gefehlt. Das absolute Highlight ist das Frühstück, dass man auf der eigenen Terrasse serviert bekommt. Die Inhaberhin geht auch gerne auf Sonderwünsche ein und ist jeden Morgen für Gespräche und Tipps bereit. Besonders schön ist auch der riesige Garten mit Aussicht auf den Mauna Kea. Vor allem bei der Ankunft empfehle ich die Vermieter zu kontaktieren, da die Einfahrt sehr schwer von der Straße aus zu erkennen ist (die Unterkuft ist von der Straße aus gar nicht zu sehen). Thanks again for your sincere hospitality - best regards from Germany!

High Quality Bed and Breakfast

  • 5 of 5

What a find! We absolutely loved this place and thoroughly enjoyed meeting the owners, Leslea and Daryl. Leslea is a gourmet cook and makes fabulous 5-Star breakfasts for your enjoyment every morning.

The unit is beautifully laid out, separate from the owners' house, with a spacious bathroom and bedroom. It is very clean and comes with lots of towels and toiletries. We found it was very quiet and peaceful during our stay.

We were delighted to have the owners' dog, Peaches, greet us each morning outside our door.

The property is conveniently located with easy short drives to Volcano National Park and to the Farmers' Market in Hilo.

We highly recommend Volcano Villas to anyone who wants to explore this region of the Big Island. It is a wonderful place to stay.

wunderschönes Bed & Breakfast

  • 5 of 5

Ich war mit meinem Freund 3 Nächte in diesem wunderschönen Bed & Breakfast. Wir wurden sehr herzlich von Leslea empfangen und fühlten uns von Anfang an sehr wohl.

Das Haus liegt zwischen Hilo und Volcano Nationalpark und ist der ideale Ausgangspunkt für den Volcano Nationalpark. Es liegt zwar rund 20 Autominuten vom Eingang zum Volcano Nationalpark aber es lohnt sich sehr hier zu sein und nicht in Volcano Village. Der Preis ist unschlagbar für das, was man erhält.

Es ist ruhig gelegen und die Hauptstrasse nach Hilo und Volcano Nationalpark ist nur 200m entfernt.

Man fühlt sich bei Leasle wie zu Hause und hat doch seine Privatsphäre.

Das Bed & Breakfast ist sehr geräumig. Zwei grosse Betten und ein grosser Kleiderschrank. Und was alles übertrifft ist das sehr grosse und schöne Bad. Eine Regendusche, eine Badewanne mit Jacuzzi und Doppellavabo. Dafür ist die Küche etwas kleiner aber funktional und hat alles was man braucht. Ein Herd gibt es nicht dafür einen grossen Outdoor-Grill mit einer Herdplatte. Wir haben jeden Abend auf unserer Veranda genossen und oft hat uns der süsse und sehr brave Hund von Leslea Gesellschaft geleistet. Jeden morgen hat uns Leslea ein feines und frisches Frühstück zubereitet. Papayas aus dem eigenen Garten, Rührei mit "real-Swisschees", Brot und Speck. Sogar Frühstück Sandwiches hat sie uns zubereitet, als wir früh morgens auf eine Lavatour gingen.

Wir erinnern uns sehr gerne an diese Tage!!
