"We stayed for eight nights and just loved this cozy little surfside nest.
Highly recommended for couples who don't mind the waves swooping in to 10 feet from the lanai. Watch the surfers just offshore all day long. Turtles surface frequently for a gulp of air. And if you like snorkeling like we do, the most accessible snorkeling hole on the whole Kona side of the island is a walk, literally a WALK down the word at Kahalu'u Beach Park. Owner Julie is great to work with, very quick to communicate, with clear information. We plan to be back."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Another great trip to KBV 101. Unit is very well maintained and equipped. Perfect location for snorkeling or surfing Kahala'u bay. Suggestions for guests: 1-- enjoy the snorkeling, avoid Wed. Cruise ship day, and please don't stand on the coral or chase the sea turtles! 2-- don't believe the advertised wifi, it is useless. 3-- don't expect comfortable living room furniture."

"Our family of 10, my husband, our daughters, their husbands and our 4 grandkids, thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay at Hale MeleKai. Simmy lived nearby and was able to help us get settled in and answered any questions we might have. Our two 15 year-old teens and our 11 year-old boys, (all cousins) enjoyed having the “dorm style” back room to themselves and the sofa bed in the living room worked out fine for our third couple. We ate all of our “at-home” meals on the lanai in the front of the home. I especially enjoyed the home’s many ceiling fans on the warm, humid days. We all snorkeled several times at nearby Kahalu’u Beach and watched beautiful sunsets a few times at the beach access across the street up from the house. My daughter appreciated having the use of a surf board and surfed every day except the day we all spent the entire day enjoying the Volcano National Park. During our last evening in Kona we were all thrilled to snorkel at night with the manta rays up at the nearby Sheraton Hotel. The “Fair Wind” night snorkel with the mantas” was amazing and included soup & buns & hot chocolate after the snorkel. We would definitely recommend it. This was our family’s first visit to Kona, and Hale MeleKai was the perfect home in a great location from which to discover Kona’s unique qualities and sites."

"We stayed at this home this past year for our family Christmas. The house was a perfect set up for our family, including two small kids. The house has a crib, high chair, stroller, and endless toys for the kids. It was so nice to know that we didn't need to bring any of these things with us and our kids were so excited to see all of the things there for them. The small outdoor wading pool was shaded and perfect for the kids too!
The house is also in the perfect location: views of the ocean, a 5 minute walk to one of the best family beaches that is also perfect for snorkeling and learning to surf.
Simmy was so easy to work with and helpful throughout our trip. We really appreciated all that she did for us and we really felt at home here during our vacation."
