vacation rental description

Watch the sun dip toward the sea painting the skies with orange, pink, red, violet, lavender, and blue, while you are relaxing in an Indonesian sling-back chair on the lanai. Soothing breezes fan the trees sending up scents of plumeria. Soon the evening stars appear and the surf is heard above the hush that follows the setting of the sun. Night has fallen and the coastline is now dotted with lights.

Tomorrow perhaps you will go to the beach a couple of streets below and play in the tidal pools. Or hike along the coast and investigate a cinder cone. Watch whales and dolphins swim by. Or maybe you will go sightseeing or snorkeling and be with the turtles and multi-colored fish. Perhaps you will just stay and read. Or study the original artwork by local and international artists displayed within the house.

For dinner, you might decide to go to one of the restaurants in a nearby town or venture to Kailua for more choices and a little nightlife; although it would be lovely to stay and eat in. The kitchen is well equipped to handle simple to gourmet preparations. Enjoy the dining set made from three hundred year-old roots from a jungle in Thailand. Afterward, sink into one of the sofas and feel the inviting softness of the hand-knotted rug from Tibet under your bare feet. Select a movie to watch from the DVD collection in the teak armoire. Or listen to music played on a high quality stereo/CD player.

Then slip into the cool, comfortable bed and let the sound of the surf and the night wind be your lullaby.

If you can imagine yourself in this peaceful setting, then Hale Mele Kohola is for you.

traveler reviews for this opihihale house rental

A charming home with a fabulous view!

Review submitted: February 20, 2014   Date of arrival: January 26, 2014

I stayed here at the end of Jan. 2014. The house is beautiful, with comfortable furniture, and an incredible view of the ocean. There is one caution, be prepared for a lot of steps leading up to the entry doors. The owner is a delightful woman who will send you loads of helpful information, and the local caretaker is equally delightful. You'll find the caretaker's Kona coffee waiting for you, a platter of local fruit, and fruit trees from which you can pick more. I will definitely stay here again!

Recommended for: sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Your comment about the stairs made me smile and brought to mind the first time we climbed up those very same steps and wondered how many more there might be. At the top we were rewarded with a view that took our breath away! We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you will return. We look forward to that day. Mahalo nui loa for choosing our island home for your holiday.

Perfect Vacation Home for Family of Four

Review submitted: January 12, 2014   Date of arrival: December 24, 2013

Just returned refreshed and renewed after a week at this beautiful home. Whether you want to simply stay put and enjoy the stunning views from the lanai or use it as an excellent base to explore the Southern part of Hawaii, especially the Volcanoes National Park, it checks all the boxes: stunning 180 sea views, clean and comfortable, well equipped (esp the kitchen), artistically inspiring and great layout. The owner, Nanette, is a sweetheart and was a font of knowledge about the local amenities. She helped make us feel like locals, even though it was our first time to the island. I recommend this home wholeheartedly, with the small caveat that the access road to the house is very steep and not for the faint of heart.

Owners response: Nothing makes us feel better than to know that our guests enjoyed being in our island home and felt at ease exploring the Big Island. Mahalo nui loa for making Hale Mele Kohola a part of your Hawai'ian holiday memories. We look forward to your return!

Very comfortable, great view, and well equipped

Review submitted: June 26, 2013   Date of arrival: May 23, 2013

Nanette's home was perfect. It's easy to get to and very close to the best snorkeling on the island - Two Step. We appreciated the chairs, umbrellas, and snorkeling fins. The classic films entertained us every night. The home is very well equipped. I'd recommend the house to anyone wanting a private home in the Captain Cook area.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway
