  • Extraordinary escape to paradise!!

    "Hale Melia, a beautifully appointed showcase home, is a fabulous place to stay - from the panoramic ocean, mountain and golf views outside to the lovely furnishings and elegant island décor inside! The quiet ground floor unit is luxurious, spacious, sparkling clean and really well-maintained. No lugging of suitcases, purchases, beach gear, etc. up and down stairs is required. From this private end unit location on the highest elevation in the Wai 'Ula 'Ula complex, it is so easy to pop over to either Mauna Kea or Hapuna for golf and walks on the beach. We loved having access to the two hotels and their amenities throughout our stay. The Tommy Bahama writing desk in one of the master suites affords phenomenal views, so logging in for some occasional meetings and work was stress-free. Mauna Kea Resort Services was really friendly and efficient - their stock and shop offering is awesome! With an advance order, we arrived to a well-stocked refrigerator filled with our favorite foods and beverages. We replenished supplies the same way midway through our stay and really enjoyed cooking in the gourmet kitchen and on the lanai with the BBQ. Sunsets from the lanai are absolutely breathtaking - just like the photo at the website! Some of the sites we took in: lunch and tour at the Hawaiian Vanilla Company; Kula Caverns Caves (be prepared to crawl on your hands and knees!); Thunder Mountain Coffee; Hamakua Macadamia Nut Factory; and both the Sunday brunch and the famous luau at Mauna Kea. The kids loved the Dolphin Quest at Hilton Waikoloa; Ocean Rider Seahorse Farm and the island honus at Puako black sand beach (just a short drive from the condo). We also appreciated having the small kids' chairs in the unit. We miss waking up to the ocean view every morning and we definitely plan to return to Hale Melia again. Mahalo for sharing your island home with us! PS - be sure to visit the Original Big Island Shave Ice Company truck in Kawaihae - a 5-10 minute drive - for the best shave ice on the island! In Kona, don't forget to stop at Mrs. Barry's cookies and Kailua Candy Company."

  • Perfect home for a group or family vacation

    "Our note to the owner summarizes our wonderful stay. Hi Judy: My husband was our family "travel agent” for this trip—so I did not have the pleasure of the initial communications with you and wanted to touch base and let you know how much our family enjoyed being together at your home. It is simply beautiful and equipped with all imaginable and it was a joy to relax together in such a beautiful setting. You can tell by the way that you have created the space of your home, that you have welcomed family and friends for years of celebration and for being together. That spirit pervades—and we were so happy to be part of it. Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy New Year. Fondly,"

  • Incredible rental

    "We spent a week in this house and could have easily stayed forever! The house was fully stocked with everything we needed which gave us the opportunity to eat several meals there, saving us a lot of money. Waking up every morning and enjoying my coffee on the lanai overlooking the phenomenal view was the best part of the entire vacation. It was the most relaxing vacation I've ever had. As beautiful as the resort and the island is I spent a good amount of my free time lounging by the pool. There are grocery stores and shopping within minutes as well as easy access to both resorts. Staying at this house is far better than staying in any hotel room. This was by far the greatest vacation we have ever been on and hope to rent this same house again in the future."

  • This Home was Wonderful!

    "This home was wonderful! The pool and patio were a gathering place from breakfast to star-gazing. Everything we needed to feel at home was there. My granddaughter called it a mansion! We can't wait to return!"
