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

Our second stay at Hale Mele Kohola

Review submitted: July 7, 2014   Date of arrival: June 20, 2014

Returning with our grown children a year after our first stay was a delight. I "echo" the previous reviewers superlatives. The view from the deck is wonderful and the home interior is tastefully done and comfortable. Take a walk on the "Kings Highway" trail south of the beach if you want exercise, grand views and solitude (wear tennis shoes!).
We were lucky to see a dozen spinner dolphins when we snorkeled in the bay next to Place of Refuge. This bay also has amazing coral heads and plentiful fish. There is a wonderful, non profit, botanical garden between Place of Refuge and Kealakekua Bay called Paleaku Gardens Peace Sanctuary that is worth visiting.
Thank you for the coffee, fruit and a wonderful stay!

Owners response: It is always our pleasure when guests enjoy their stay at Hale Mele Kohola, our island home, and we take it as a great compliment when guests choose to return. Mahalo nui loa for coming back and we look forward to your return.

Wow! Aloha Kona Paradise!!

Review submitted: June 10, 2014   Date of arrival: May 24, 2014

A week was not long enough!! We picked up our rental car & headed 45 minutes south (instructions from Owner so precise!). The complimentary fresh fruit plate & Kona coffee were a real treat! The beds were so very comfortable. Ceiling fans in every room keeps the home cool! The living area was very comfortable & plenty of room to never feel crowded. The 2 bathrooms stocked with body wash & shampoo, so you can travel light! The kitchen was an amazing surprise, everything we needed plus spices! The chilled , filtered water perfect for our day trips (bring along refillable bottles). We enjoyed eating outside on the lanai as well as the one of a kind dining inside! Chose this vacation home with confidence! There is a (feels private) public "pebble beach" down the street with terrific snorkeling & swimming. We had calm summer seas! Many mornings we were the only ones on the beach (thank you for the chairs & umbrellas)! The complimentary laundry facility such a perk! This home has everything to make you feel at home, but lounging on the lanai with full ocean views & island breezes and you know you are far from home!! The Big Island has so much to offer, don't think you can see it all in one trip! Our helicopter tour with Safari Tours was a hi-light as were Two Step snorkeling, the local fresh fruit/apple bananas, Mac nuts & Kona coffee, and the variety of different beaches nearby. Coming back will be an easy decision!! Our time spent with our family was priceless, such great memories! We admit, we wimped out and left our car parked at the bottom of the driveway & walked up! We didn't mind, needed to walk off all the good meals!! Thank you for the many recommendations! We picked some fresh limes, (thank you!) and enjoyed the beautiful flowers around the property. Thank you for sharing your home with us! Our family of 4 left relaxed & looking forward to planning our return trip! From all of us - MAHALO!!

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

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.
