“Quiet, cozy, isolated hideaway”
Reviewed 18 June 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed two nights, and found it cosy and comfy. The drive down tiny roads was not a problem, and it is not far to the Volcano Park.

The owner has a rather obsessive/compulsive personality :). She has tiny signs with instructions throughout the suite, and likes things to be neat and clean. However, the upside is that if we all agree to follow her preferences, the suite will forever remain neat and clean for our fellow guests! So if you think of her signs and rules as charming or amusing, then your stay will be even more memorable. I recommend it, and would stay there again.

Management Response

:-) tiny signs come from experiences and meant to be helpful... inspired by either calls I'd get or incidents that happened.... ie a guest burning towels (to dry!) on the fireplace... poof, 'instant' sign. A few times of an art piece handled and fallen causing damage...poof, an 'eventual' sign. Taking your shoes off at the door is a Hawaiian custom which is the only 'clean' sign I can think of.. and the only cleaning we ask for are your own dishes and food clean up (no trash/laundry/housecleaning) That said.. yes, we do love it superclean, but we take care of that part. You'll also enjoy my obsessively done guest book of sites, hikes, etc.. A hui hou! Leslie

“Cozy Volcano Cottage”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This place is a hidden gem. Not only were we a 5 min drive to the volcano national park, but the cottage is secluded and surrounded by a rain forest. Very relaxing and perfect for a couple getaway. The owners clearly put a lot of care and thought into making the home comfortable and cozy! The restaurant recommendations in the folder were also spot on.

“A Perfect Hideaway”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Mahana Mansion. The spacious cottage was quiet, clean, and comfortable (great bed!) with everything you could need for your stay including flashlights, umbrellas and electric blankets. The tropical surroundings and tranquil decor made for a relaxing stay. A few minutes away from Volcano National Park it was the perfect base for exploring. The owner was helpful and the provided guest book was a wealth of information. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommended it to friends and family.

“a great place in the forest”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A neat, well kept, bright hangout. Cozy during a wild downpour. The little porch is a sweet place to be outdoors. Close to all Volcano town goodies.

Perfect little hideaway with all the amenities and more. Leslie was very responsive from the start and her directions were spot on. Very close to Volcano Nat'l Park yet secluded and private. A very beautiful and well cared for property. Wish we could have spent more time there. No problems issues or concerns.
