About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bath, with pool, ocean views, and two lanais

Perfect for families! This house has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and TWO covered lanais. Enough room for everyone to have some space! Check out the BRAND NEW kitchen! New cabinets, granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances.

Located on the gentle slope of Hualalai, just enough elevation to feel the cooling afternoon breezes.

Imagine relaxing by the pool listening to the soothing waterfall. You can grill up that local fish and dine outside in the gazebo. Your senses will enjoy the lovely yard with tropical flowers and plants.

Time for sunset? Grab your traditional sunset cocktail and relax while soaking up the beautiful ocean views from your TWO lanais.

Only five minutes to Kailua town, full of shopping and great restaurants, and even closer for groceries and the health food store.

You may just stay by the pool all day, but if you do decide to go to the beach we have lots of toys, towels, beach chairs, and coolers for you to use.

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 Kailua-Kona

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.

Perfect home for a family reunion 🌈🌴❤️

  • 5 of 5

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 .

Super clean and beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Kona Perfection

  • 5 of 5

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!

Your private oasis at Melelina Hale

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful Home, Wondeful Stay

  • 5 of 5

WOW....this house is amazing. We walked in and were overwhelmed by it's size and beautiful it was. This fit our family perfectly from a main floor bedroom for my elderly dad to lots of space upstairs for all the other family members. We hosted a small get together for my son who got married in Kona, and the house easily accommodated everyone! From an extra fridge in the garage to a shower off the pool, full size washer and dryer, this house met every need. We would definitely rent this again and Rachel was super easy to work with :) Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Wonderful large home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight adults thoroughly enjoyed this home. Rachel was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and very accommodating to our needs. The pool area was large and very private and the lanais were great to watch the views. The kitchen was well stocked and we used it for almost all of our meals. It was so nice to have all of the pool and beach equipment so that we didn't have to buy or bring it with us. Having plenty of towels and a laundry was also a great bonus! It was so nice to come "home" after a day of exploring. Thank you so much for making our family trip such a memorable experience!
