  • Welcome To Your Home In Paradise!

    "This is such a beautiful place to stay on the island. It's away from the hustle and bustle of a big resort, yet within a friendly and safe area with a community feel. The beach is mere steps away with plenty of privacy and all the comforts of home. Everything you need is right there including extras like beach towels, snorkeling equipment, wifi, a washer / dryer and even a blender for those early AM smoothies. I felt in harmony with the place right away, waking with the sunrise and ending the day in peace and quiet after a fun day taking in the local sights. The place is also whimsically and tastefully decorated in the spirit of the islands. After being in this cottage, I can't imagine settling for a hotel room on the island ever again. Treat yourself to a stay here, and create memories in Punalu'u to last a lifetime!"

  • Amazing Location and Comfortable Accommodations

    "Jack was very helpful and gracious during our visit. The place itself is fairly spacious and slept all 8 of us when we employed the blow-up bed. Honestly, the best thing about the house is the location. We traveled all over the North Shore hitting a number of different beaches ... our favorite was the one right across the street. Our kids range in age from 7-17 y.o. and we all had something we could enjoy at Kokololio. One thing to clarify is that the place does not have Air Conditioning. One of the reviews is a bit misleading on that account. It has ceiling fans which help, but the house is pretty well protected by trees that keep any sort of breeze from finding the sleeping rooms. I don't think it bothered most of us on most nights ... but I think it might be important for some to understand that. Then again, I don't think many houses or rentals in the area are likely to have A/C either ... so I wouldn't let it stop me from booking Jacks' place. Thanks, again, for a week to remember!"

  • Great home away from home in paradise!

    "Hale Moana Mele is a wonderful home away from home in paradise! After comparing Oahu choices away from the beaten path, this gem owned by Norman stood out in size, location & price. Upon arrival, our group of six found the home clean & the photos & description on the home page accurate. All 4 bedrooms have ceiling fans & window AC units, which were very important to us Texans! The AC's cooled the bedrooms quickly, though a bit noisy. The beds were comfortable & the bathrooms adequate. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, glassware, & dinnerware. It was so helpful to have 2 new front loader washers & dryers. The two car garage was a tight fit for our rental Ford Explorer & a smaller SUV, but with patience, the garage door came down. The best part of Hale Moana Mele is to be found outdoors. The views are gorgeous, especially the sunrises & sunsets through the palm trees. There are two very nice wooden decks on the 1st & 2nd floor overlooking the water. We spent a lot of time there at night listening to the waves. We enjoyed cooking on the charcoal grill almost daily & had several meals on the lanai (covered patio). The spacious back yard has 4 palm trees that help to make a beautiful sunset postcard. The beach is accessible through the side gate of a friendly neighbor’s yard. Roger was most helpful on any questions & helped immensely with recycling issues. He even made sure our trash & recycling cans were on the curb on the correct pick-up days. The other reviews of the beach are accurate. The beach is almost completely private, as we saw only a few people walking on “our beach” daily. The waves at high tide will touch the rock wall, but at low tide, there is plenty of room for sunbathing. Norman, the owner, checked on us via phone from time to time, but he was not at all invasive. Having the owner available for any help or advice was comforting. The souvenir shop owner across the street is very friendly, & he has some great bargains in comparison with the larger towns. Our favorite meal outside of Hale Moana Mele was at Haleiwa Joe’s in Kaneohe, a 30 min. drive south. We went in to Honolulu (50 min drive) twice & were eager to get back to the peace & quiet of our small town of Hauula. If looking for the excitement of a big city, complete with the noise & traffic, stay in Honolulu; however, if you want a quiet, peaceful, relaxing vacation, book Hale Moana Mele...you will not be disappointed."
