Melemele house is located in the quiet residential community at Kaloli Point. Kaloli Point is considered the jewel of Hawaiian Paradise Park (HPP), with its quiet community of mainly long-term residents, its wonderful flow of trade winds, closeness to the ocean and its relatively flat terrain. Kaloli Point is also in a rain shadow, it could be raining more inland but not on Kaloli point. You will enjoy easy and safe sunset walks along the coastal waters, peaceful evening meals on your screened lanai and the sounds of the ocean nearby.
The location of melemele house puts you close to the town of Hilo, with regular farmer’s markets, fine dining and retail shops, as well as the small towns of Kea’au and Pahoa, with their unique local communities and histories. The home is ideally situated with short drives leading to lazy beach days with the kids near Hilo, to incredible snorkeling at Carlsmith and Richardson Beach parks. Since the recent lava flow in the summer of 2018 there are several new black sand beaches that easy to get to where once Pohiki Boat ramp once was (see photo).
Hawaii Volcano National Park, which is only 20 miles away, re-opened on September 22 and the vast majority of areas and activities have returned (https://www.nps.gov/havo/index.htm ). Be one of the first people to see the new crater and a great opportunity to see the tropical sea birds that nest in the crater (see photo). This is a fantastic opportunity to see how much the crater has changed since the many thousands of earth quakes hit the region in the summer of 2018.
Melemele house is close enough to the coastal waters (with a 2-3 min walk to a waterfront park) that the surf can be heard while you relax or eat your meals on the large screened lanai. This “classic” Hawai’ian style 2 story home, with vaulted ceilings, an open floor plan and windows strategically placed to allow the trade winds to flow through the house will give you the full aloha experience. The kitchen, dining area and living room are located in the vaulted roof area with each room having its own ceiling fan to keep them cool.
The living area has a 50” smart HDTV with a DVD player and cable TV for your entertainment needs and movie nights. And the Wi-Fi throughout the house will keep you connected. The dining nook has a 4-person table (in addition to the table on the master lanai). The kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities needed to enjoy those Hawai’ian meals. The house has 3 bedrooms (each with a unique ceiling fan) and 2.5 bathrooms. In addition to the living areas, the top floor also has the master bedroom and a guest, half bath. The master bedroom offers the luxury of a California king bed and an en suite bathroom, large walk in closet and private lanai that lets you cozy up with a coffee/tea and a good book. Downstairs you will find the other two bedrooms, each with queen size beds, and closet space. These bedrooms share a full size bath. Downstairs you will also find a fully equipped laundry room (washer and dryer), a utility sink and a linen closet with ample beach towels and blankets for all your beach going needs and additional equipment such as snorkels, goggles, fins and a body board stored in the laundry room. there are also 3 bicycles available to ride around the area.
Melemele house is located on a half-acre lot with a lot of privacy and a large paved driveway to meet all your parking needs. As is common in this residential area you will find plenty of flora in the front and back garden. The home has fruit trees including: coconut, orange, lemon, star fruit, dragon fruit, macadamia nut tree , tangerine and two different types of avocados (bloom at different times of the year so there is always avocados), and a large assortment of flowers, including the pride of Hawai’i the Ohia trees with Lehua flowers. Don’t be surprised if you identify even more as you explore the neighborhood. In addition to admiring the flora, prepare to do some whale watching during the day (seasonal Nov-March) and star-gazing at night. Whales have been observed off Kaloli Point, with humpbacks in the bay during whale season, and the distance from city centers make Kaloli Point ideal for star-gazing on a clear night.
