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 and 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.
You can read 12 Five Star Guest reviews , then you can read more by following this trail that VRBO has set up. For a review of the many comments that our Guests have written in our Guest Book and transferred by us, please Scroll down below the OWNER INFO section near the bottom of this web site. Read one review and our response. Then, on the right side of that section it will say '1 Of 88', and you can click on each one to follow. (That makes a total of 100). I know, it is surely a strange way to show these reviews, like we are sending you on a wild chase of some kind, but it is not us doing this.
Among our Beautiful Furnishings is a cushy Leather Double Recliner. In our travels we have found that other couches with wicker frames and loose floral cushions are pretty, but also pretty uncomfortable to sit on,...if you are spending any extended time here, (which we hope you will do). We enjoy decorating with local art of Hawaii, more than 35 pieces on the walls.
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, assisted by our one special housekeeper. Our unit is in a quiet setting not disturbed by traffic noise.
HALE O MELE LAI is indeed our 'House of Happy Songs' in Hawaii! ' MELE LA'I' 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.
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 adequate for comfort. 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 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 a gas station, several small restaurants, a larger Italian restaurant is soon to open, medical offices, 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 things to see and do.
