About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
Our Beautiful Two Bedroom condo, HALE O MELE LA'I, our 'House of Happy Songs' in Waikoloa Villas on the Big Island has been beautifully furnished as a home, not just a vacation rental.
Our Non-Smoking, spacious 1260 sq ft unit, plus a very roomy lanai allows for very comfortable living with a view across the golf course to the Pacific Ocean. We are on the 2nd floor of the two-story complex, so you have an even better view from the lanai and don't have anyone above you.
Please enjoy our VIDEO on this web site which you can access by clicking on the video graphic at the top of the first photo. It shows the condo lovingly furnished inside and out, views of the beautiful grounds, and takes you out and around the island a bit.
Be sure to have your Volume Up on the Computer as that makes the video all the more enjoyable. Also expand the Screen on the computer.
You can read 19 wonderful Five Star reviews directly from our guests.
MORE REVIEWS....UPWARDS OF 100!!
If you want to see the remainder of the 100 plus reviews you can read more. For a review of the many comments that our Guests have also written in our Guest Book and that we have transferred into VRBO, HomeAway, and Vacation Rentals, Please Scroll down to "Guest Comments From the Owner". It will start with #1 of 88 reviews that you can click and read as far as you desire.
Because these original reviews were posted by us to the site, VRBO has removed the names. Reviews mean so much when trying to decide on the perfect place for you to stay.
Among our Beautiful Furnishings is a cushy Leather Double Recliner (recliner #1 and #2). In our travels we have found that some other couches with wicker frames and loose floral cushions are pretty, but also pretty uncomfortable to sit on, you are spending any extended time in our home, (which we hope you will do). Our 3rd leather recliner in the living area is powered for relaxing ease. The 4th recliner is on the lanai, a good napping spot.
We enjoy decorating with local art of Hawaii, with more than 35 pieces hanging on the walls.
HALE O MELE LAI is indeed our 'House of Happy Songs'. in Hawaiian MELE LA'I means Happy Song and is the name of an old Hawaiian Hymn.
We love the Hawaiian Culture and since Music is such an important part of the Culture and of our own lives, we want to share that with our guests by providing a library of HAWAIIAN MUSIC. You may enjoy picking up the ukulele and making your own music. There is also an instruction book.
We enjoy the best of both worlds by being at about 900 foot elevation, with nights a little cooler and days warm and sunny, therefore the 6 ceiling fans are usually adequate for comfort.
It is just a short 10 minute drive to the South Kohala Gold Coast, where there are six beautiful long sandy beaches to choose from, including the well known Hapuna Beach, (voted the best in the country) and 'Anaeho'omalu Bay ('A Bay').
Waikoloa Villas is situated along the 18 hole WAIKOLOA VILLAGE GOLF COURSE, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., for which we include golf discount cards. For the avid golfer, there are six other golf courses near by.
WAIKOLOA VILLAGE has a small Shopping Center with a full line, top notch, affordable local grocery store with pharmacy, bakery, deli, and fresh fish and meat market. Also in the Village...a gas station, several small restaurants, a larger Italian restaurant, medical offices, dental office, beauty salon, bank ,and Post Office.
We are Centrally Located to the Beaches, Shops and Restaurants along the Kohala coast, the North Shore with Kamehameha's birthplace, the Paniolo (cowboy) town of Waimea, the old town of Hilo, the Volcano, and the shops and restaurants of Kona, and much, much more.
The Big Island has 11 different climate zones from the ocean to the top of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, so much variety of temperatures and fauna and flora to see.
With our Free Wi-Fi HIGH SPEED INTERNET connection you can keep in touch when you bring your laptop.
We take pride in keeping our unit looking fresh and inviting. Our unit is in a quiet setting not disturbed by traffic noise. Our guests often comment on how peaceful and quiet the Villas complex is.
Please read further from our Guest Comments link as to how people have enjoyed themselves and appreciated the way we have dealt with them in a personal way.
We invite you to come and stay in the Beautiful Home-like Environment we have created for your enjoyment.

About the owner: We moved from Kansas City years ago, where we were teachers, to our dream place of Estes Park, Colorado where we were in business for 25 years. Soon, we wanted a get-away from the winter cold and discovered Hawaii, our NEW dream place! After years of shopping real estate, we finally decided the Big Island was it, so we took the plunge.
Why the Owner Chose Waikoloa Village, HI, USA:
We chose Waikoloa Village because it has a small town local feeling, more quiet and laid back than the hustle and bustle of the beach complexes. We like the Waikoloa Villas complex because we found a feeling of home and comfort, of belonging to a place. We enjoy the somewhat more moderate temperatures and especially the clearer air than in Kona, helped by the trade winds. The culture and spirit of old Hawaii are very important to us and we found that easier to access on the Big Island. We love the small Hawaiian churches where you can meet the people and hear the hymns sung in the beautiful Hawaiian language.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy the ability to go from our condo out in any direction---to the Kohala Gold Coast with its beautiful, long, and accessible white sand beaches, the historical old towns up north, the old Hawaiian cultural sites, Mauna Kea, the Parker Ranch, the Volcano, Kona shops, Hilo, great restaurants in the Queen and King shops and so much more. The Villas sits at the edge of the beautiful Waikoloa Village Golf Course, so you can walk over to the Pro Shop, get a cart and head out for 18 holes, very reasonably priced, by virtue of the discount cards we can provide.
