“I Left My Heart at the Maile Treehouse in Volcano, Big Island, Hawaii”
Reviewed October 30, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed here in the last week of a month-long Hawaii dream vacation to celebrate our birthdays. Hawaii had been experiencing a heat wave, especially hot for the time of year and with no Trade Winds to soften the heat and humidity. We were tired and a little (not a lot) dispirited when we arrived on the Big Island and drove to the Maile Treehouse. Here we found magic! The elevation provides a drop in temperature, and the wide open windows in the lodging take advantage of sweet, cooling breezes. There are so many delightful and charming touches to this place. We gave our landlady the TripAdvisor Service pin we'd been holding onto for six months. She deserved it! We are considering giving a gift of a week at the Maile Treehouse to our son and his wife. What a restoration this retreat provides! It is quiet, quiet, quiet--except for wonderful rain forest bird songs. It's located just a couple of miles away from Volcano National Park, and we went there several times during our stay. But mostly we could hardly bear to miss time in the lodging, it was that great. We will be back!

“Honeymoon”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 for a stay in April 2013

It was my first time in hawaii and me and wife who are into adventure decided to pick this place up.
Staying at this unique place for our honeymoon made it really special.we stayed on the second floor of this treehouse.The house is unique and beautiful and is very well decorated.
Considering that food in hawaii is expensive having a complete kitchen worked very well in our favor.
Hawaii volcano national park is a short drive away.
Kudos to Leslie and her husband for maintaining such a beautiful property.

“Hidden Attraction in Volcano”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

What do you say about the Maile Treehouse? Well it isn’t your typical cottage; it is more like staying in someone’s home and not just any home, their pride and joy. It is filled with little nick nacs and curiosities. Everywhere you look there is a little mouse ornament or a gecko or a frog in a tree outside your window. It is also glass all around and surrounded by thick trees, so although it is the second storey of a house, there is another unit downstairs, it does truly feel like a treehouse. Don’t get me wrong, it is also very private. At the same time it is both functional and comfortable with everything you need. My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. It is about 2 or 3 km out of Volcano up a small quite lane which runs off a quiet street. The pictures above are an accurate representation. It is one of those sorts of places where staying there is an experience in itself, where you feel you should have spent time just laying around instead of seeing the sites. If all you want is a place to put your head then this is not for you. However if you want to add to your experience of the Volcano region then I can’t imagine a better place.

Delighted our efforts to make Maile Treehouse 'more than just a place to stay' was so thoroughly enjoyed. Just to be clear.. THE 'DOWNSTAIRS UNIT' is only a second bedroom option to the guest staying in the main house, NOT RENTED SEPARATELY during someone's stay!
Aloha,
Leslie

“Hated to leave”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My wife and I have rented a number of vacation rentals in Hawaii in the past, particularly on Kauai, and this one is certainly our favorite. The place is private (which is good since it has no window coverings), immaculately clean, and fun. The owners were great to work with and
they have gone to great lengths to plan so many details and surprises that we continued to find throughout our two night stay (some of them when we least expected).

The house was so convenient to Volcano National Park, yet away from the crowds and hustle and bustle. The only problem we had is that we didn't want to leave to explore the great sights nearby or head to the other side of the island for the rest of our stay. We would come back here again in a heartbeat!

“Rancho Relaxo!”

OK, So it's nothing like the Simpsons episode but the tree house is lovely. It's so quiet and secluded you almost feel like the only people around. It is located in the town of Volcano but it is just far enough away from everyone to make it a great getaway. The tree house is lovely and the pictures are accurate. Lovely hardwood floors, beautiful Jacuzzi tub and everywhere you look a window with a view of the lush forest. The patio is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy your morning coffee. We even had an issue (beeping smoke detector) when we first arrived and Leslie had someone take care of it within an hour. The house was immaculately cleaned and maintained. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this location to anyone. It is very close to the Volcano National forest and the shops in town were very convenient.
