"This was more first experience with VRBO, and this rental certainly sets a high standard for others to meet. First, Kristine was fantastic to work with. She places a high priority of prompt and thorough communication and is very very personable. You can tell that she really wants to go the extra mile to ensure that her guests have a very memorable experience. I really valued the time she spent with my family pointing out the various features of the home and offered many suggestions for restaurants and grocery stores. The house was fantastic. Pictures do not being to do the house justice. I will echo the comments made by other reviewers regarding how clean the house was. The house, both yards and the pool were all just spotless. The spaciousness and open floorplan provided opportunities for some quiet time without feeling totally isolated from the rest of the family. Furnishings were very very comfortable, fitting in quite nicely with the tropical theme. We spent most evenings out in the backyard by the BBQ and pool. Sunsets were amazing, even on cloudy nights. And the location was perfect. I loved being as close to Alii Drive as we were, yet being away from the traffic and noise. My son and I would go for long runs each morning and were literally running on Alii within 3 minutes. The solar heated pool was an added bonus. Just the right temperature and extremely clean. I hated to leave, a sentiment echoed by our entire family. Mahalo Kristine for all your work and your fantastic home. I look forward to a return visit soon!"

"WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! TIMES A MILLION DOESN'T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE THIS FABULOUS HOME. MY HUSBAND AND I DECIDED TO TAKE OUR CHILDREN AND SPOUSES TO THE BIG ISLAND FOR HIS 80TH BIRTHDAY. THIS HOME IS BEYOND FABULOUS. WE WANTED ALL OF US UNDER ONE ROOF BUT WITH INDIVIDUAL PRIVACY AS WELL. THE SUITE OVER THE GARAGE, THE JACK AND JILL BEDROOMS AND THE MASTER BEDROOM OVER THE MAIN HOUSE WAS PERFECT. WE WERE ALL TOGETHER BUT NOT ON TOP OF ONE ANOTHER. THE HOUSE IS TO DIE FOR. ONE COULD NOT WANT FOR ANYTHING MORE. THE MAIN HOUSE IS OPEN TO THE OCEAN AND POOL AREA. OH THE POOL, MARVELOUS TO SAY THE LEAST. THE KITCHEN IS WELL EQUIPPED AND WONDERFUL TO COOK IN. I ONLY COOKED ONE BREAKFAST, AS THE KIDS DID ALL THE COOKING AND BBQ. WE ALL HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME IN THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED THAT IS FOR SURE. SHEREE' AND HER STAFF WERE WONDERFUL TO WORK WITH AND KEPT IN TOUCH ALONG THE WAY AND DURING OUR STAY. DID I MENTION THE MASTER QUARTERS (YES QUARTERS AS IT HAS AN OFFICE, BEDROOM AND BATHROOM AND BALCONY) ALSO HAD AN OUTSIDE SHOWER. DAD AND I LOVED THAT FEATURE. YEP HAVING A SHOWER WHILE YOU LOOK OUT AT THE BEAUTIFUL OCEAN. THE OWNERS TRULY DESIGNED THIS HOME FOR PRIVACY AND TOGETHERNESS WITH STYLE, COMFORT AND SUCH A GORGEOUS VIEW. I LOVED THE POOL AS I'M ONLY 4'11" AND THE 4' POOL WAS GREAT FOR ME. WE ALL ENJOYED ALL ASPECTS OF THE HOME AND WISH WE COULD HAVE STAYED LONGER. AS A CLOSE JUST ADD ALL THE GREAT REVIEWS FROM EVERYONE ELSE AND YOU HAVE WHAT A FANTASTIC HOME THIS IS. THANKS SHEREE' AND STAFF FOR BIRTHDAY WE ALL WILL REMEMBER. DON'T MISS OUT ON STAYING AT THIS FABULOUS HOME. YES, HOME, IT IS MORE THAN A RENTAL HOUSE."

"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."

"My husband and I have rented condos on each of the major Hawaiian islands, and I can honestly say this is the nicest unit we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. To say that it is well-equipped would be a huge understatement. From ice chests to towels to beach chairs to sunscreen, this home has it all. Even tennis rackets and snorkeling equipment! The unit itself is clean and very well cared for. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you need to feel at home, including both a Keurig and drip coffeemaker, as well as a coffee grinder. You name it, they have it! The lanai is the best part--it's a corner unit with stunning views in every direction. And because it's the last building in the complex, there are no neighbors next to you. We spent every night sitting on the lanai watching the spectacular sunsets. The complex is clean with stunning landscaping. The location is perfect, close to downtown, but far enough away to avoid the crowds. If you are planning a trip to the Big Island, do yourself a favor and book this unit--you won't be disappointed!"
