About Rachel Donnell
We purchased this beautiful home so we can come together with all our families and enjoy quality time together. And of course, the kids love the pool!
Rachel Donnell purchased this House in 2013
Why Rachel Donnell chose Hōlualoa
This house is in a great neighborhood on a corner lot. So close to town, yet has such a private feeling that you can't get with a condominium. A perfect combination!
What makes this House unique
Whether it is sitting by the pool watching the kids play or relaxing on the lanais with the beautiful ocean views, there is a true feeling of Hawaii.

Wonderful family home!
Our two families had one of the best vacations at this house...it has everything! Clean home, all the amenities, and the pool was the biggest hit. Thank you for a great time!
Thanks Amy! Glad you had a good stay. Thanks for the nice review!
Perfect house and perfect location!
We give the accommodation a five star recommendation. The home was clean, spacious, and well furnished and exactly as it appeared in the photos. In total, 7 adults stayed in this home and we were very comfortable. My wife and I stayed in the large suite and felt like we were in the lap of luxury. The home was well stocked with kitchen ware, tools, pool flotation devices, beach chairs, towels, and more. A high point for our group was the pool and patio. It was well appointed and surrounded by beautiful plants and trees. The pool was clean and set at a comfortable temperature. The owner quickly responded to any queries we had about the house. My husband and I got married during our stay and we used the dining room for our reception. We had the reception event planned by Katherine Louie, a private chef, at Outrageous Gourmet. The living/dining room was transformed into a high end restaurant complete with a Ukulele player. This is a highly recommeded option for those who want to do something special and the house was a wonderful venue. The upstairs had two spacious patios with a view of the water and sunsets. We had fun keeping an eye on the whereabouts of the cruise ships. The only downside to the house is that there is some traffic noise especially during the commuting hours. And of course, the wild turkeys gobbling in the morning! LOL!
Wow, I am so glad you shared your photos of the wedding and reception, absolutely stunning! Glad you all enjoyed your stay. I appreciate your kind words. Thanks Jacqueline!
Perfect home for a family reunion 🌈🌴❤️
The variety of indoor and outdoor space allowed us to enjoy the sun and the rain, be together and have privacy, while having easy access to town, the coffee plantations and golf. The kitchen is fully equipped for
preparing large meals with a bar b que poolside. We enjoyed every moment. And highly recommend this VRBO .
Thank you Diane! You guys survived a wild storm while you were there :) I am glad you had a good stay. Thanks for leaving the house in excellent condition!
Super clean and beautiful property!
We were super pleased with our stay at the Melelina hale. I came to race the IRONMAN World Championships. Our party of 8 had plenty of room to spread out. The 2 verandas offered an escape and a wonderful ocean view. The pool area was private and also a pleasant place to relax. The property was approximately 1.5 miles from town and even closer to grocery and convenience stores. We loved being close to the race venue yet far enough away to stay out of the fray. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. The house is so beautiful and spacious! We surely will stay here on any return trips to Kona. Rachel was one of the best hosts I have experienced. Super easy to reach and very responsive to any emails etc. Thanks again!
Thanks Janeen! Wow, that is quite the feat! Glad your Ironman stay was successful. We would love to have you back again anytime :)
We spent 4 weeks at Melelina Hale, and enjoyed every minute. We had 6 adults and 2 children, and had plenty of room for all. The home is well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing stay: The spacious, comfortable bedrooms. The heated pool. The two lanais for ocean viewing. The kitchen outfitted with most things needed to cook at home. (which we did a lot of) Two refrigerators were helpful, as well as the high heat grill by the pool.
The garage was stocked with pool and beach toys as well as coolers to take to the beaches.
Since we have visited the Big Island several times previously, we limited our "tourist time" and spent time with our friends and family. Coming from Minnesota in January/February, we were happy to hang by the pool and enjoy the warm weather (and a cold Kona Brew!)
Owner was responsive to inquiries and suggestions. We would recommend this property to others and certainly consider this home again when we return to the Big Island!
TIP: Go to Costco and buy fresh local Ahi tuna, Ono, or Marlin and grill it up on the back patio. Can't be beat!
Thanks Cindy!! I think your timing was perfect to get out of the cold and snow :) Maybe we will see you again next winter. Thanks for taking such great care of the house and for leaving it in such good shape :)
Your private oasis at Melelina Hale
I stayed at Melelina Hale for 8 days. This place is fabulous in so many ways: private heated pool, kitchen with everything you could imagine, AC, garage, wonderful view of the bay from the two front decks, tropical landscaping and more. The location is perfect if you are wanting a home base and plan to visit all areas of the island. The setting is so peaceful that I recommend chilling out at least one full day at the house if not more. The agent was friendly, helpful and quick to respond to inquiries. I hope to visit Melelina Hale again.
Thanks!! So glad you had a fantastic trip. We really appreciate the amazing condition the house was left. We rate you five stars as well! Please let us know if we can host you again :)
