GUEST GUIDE COMMENTS-- We loved the cottage and so appreciated the helpful tips in your beautifully made guest book // We were very grateful for the incredible guest guide, it was so helpful // The Guest Guide made our stay most enjoyable // The guest book was so informative and such a big help to us as we planned our day- alot of work on your behalf and much appreciated // Incredible Guest Guide // The Guest Guide was sooo helpful, we used it everyday // Guest Guide was a bonus! OUR 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. We would like to help you make the most of your time AND your money! You will love waking up, coming home to, or just spending time at this little hideaway! Minutes from the entrance of Hawaii Volcanoes Nationa Park, tucked in the forest of desireable Volcano Village, is the best deal in town..... Bright, clean, new, tropical, warm and cozy, we are introducing them at a magical price!!! Taking walks from right out the door will take your breath away. 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 Full Bathroom, Full Kitchen with Breakfast Nook, Living Room with Queen pull out sofa, Pack n Play available and Highchair. Large Covered Lanai, and Carport. W/D available for stays of 4 nights or longer. 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. More

I have to admit we were pretty mystified that this place received so many breathlessly positive reviews, felt misled by the politeness of previous TripAdvisor reviewers, and thought we should offer an honest opinion. The place is well-located to explore the volcano park. The kitchen...More
