Overview

Keaau House Rental Photos and Description

Yes, the whales are this close! Mele Kohola means "Singing Whale" and they will entertain you day and night (in season). There is a view from almost every room...

Whales jump just outside! Mele Kohola means "Singing Whale" in Hawaiian and they will entertain you day and night (in season, of course, December-March). Even when the whales are not in season, you'll enjoy the unobstructed bi-coastal views with waves crashing against the sea wall. There is a view from almost every room in the house including the front and back lanais. The ocean in front of Mele Kohola is very deep and the coastline is shaped in a gentle cove tempting the whales and dolphins to play very close to shore.

Once inside, you will see the pride and care taken in the classy, upscale, tropical decor, with lots of room for a large family but cozy enough for a romantic getaway. Guests love the oversized chaise lounge and extra-high king bed. If you must work, there is an office provided for you with a roomy desk and high-speed Internet. The house is located directly on the ocean in the popular neighborhood of Hawaiian Paradise Park, about 15 miles south of Hilo.

Beautiful furnishings and artistic area rugs on parquet wood floors provide style and comfort during your stay. The main part of the house is on the second floor with two bedrooms, two baths, and the office. The large back lanai (deck) has an outdoor table and barbecue, and there are two front lanais, one off the living area and one off the master bedroom. The first floor has a large open room with living, dining, and kitchenette areas. That level also has a bedroom with a large king bed. The home comes fully equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, and it has a satellite TV, DVD/CD, and washer/dryer.

Out front is an oceanfront Jacuzzi spa with views along the coastline -- dramatic waves crashing against the cliffs with a view that constantly changes. As an extra bonus, you can start your morning with a beautiful sunrise on the horizon. Yes, this is paradise!

This entry from the Mele Kohola guestbook was so moving we thought it belonged here rather than on our Testimonials page:

We arrived at night, the only indication we were on the ocean was the sound of waves breaking against rocks. The air is so clean it feels like breathing in life. The stars were speckled across the sky in surreal abundance. Brilliant sky, rumbling surf, invigorating air, all that was missing was vision.

That was left for sunrise this morning, where I saw just how close we were to the ocean. We watched the dark waves in the prelight of dawn, throwing themselves against the black lava cliffs, spraying upwards, not so much an attack as a powerful display. Walking across the twisted, hardened lava, moss fighting for ground, passing the odd, jurassic park plant, hearing the waves collide into the cliffs, I felt a sense of time's expansiveness, of how small this moment was in the universe's scheme, of the formation of ground and earth and dirt and plants, a patient progression, until hundreds or thousands of years from now nothing will resemble what I now walk on, in this tiny moment of existence in this speck over the billions of years. Nature in its rawest form.

As it grew lighter, the darkness of the water lightened into the brilliant blues and turquoise I am watching right now, waves silvered by the sun. I am feeling contemplative about life and this world. This place makes you reconsider. It instills peace and restlessness in equal measure.

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
Spent week here with another couple-fantastic house with plenty of room and privacy for both couples. Sits on lava right on water. Watched whales and sunrises from deck. Spacious, clean and lots of nice touches. Staff was very courteous and accommodating. Close to Volcano park and everything on East side. Stayed on Kona side couple of years ago--this is better by far. I would return to this place in a heartbeat and recommend to anyone. Was able to visit park, Kona side, East coast waterfalls, Hilo with minimal time traveling.

We had a wonderful stay and can find no fault with this home. We are planning a return trip and hope to stay here again. It is the best beach house we have ever rented. Loved the waves just wonderful we hated that we had to leave but Kona was calling. Thanks so much!!

Reviewer Comments:
This house has stunning views with the soothing sound of the waves crashing against the rocks. Our family had an wonderful time exploring this side of the island. I highly recommend taking a hike to Shipman Beach, which the trail starts at the end of the neighborhood.

Reviewer Comments:
Great location. Beautiful view that can't be beat. Not a place for small children...too close to cliff's edge. House is plenty large; however, we did notice mold about the place and appearance of termites. It does cool off at night after dark. Accommodations were comfortable.

The house was beautiful, right on the ocean. Many items included like lotions, soaps etc. Very well stocked, clean, and spacious. Air conditioning would be a plus, but it did cool off most nights.

Just what we were looking for in a vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
Spectacular views of the ocean and cliffs from practically every room. Couldn't believe that we were right on the lava cliffs at the ocean's edge.

Great location for a base of operations to set out to see beaches, volcanoes, and waterfalls. Although this is the big island, everything is reasonably close. Visiting from the Houston TX area, it really felt like all of the activities were right next door.

Grocery stores and restaurants were nearby - about 10 minutes to Pahoa for the small town experience and maybe 20 minutes to Hilo if you want to hit the "big" city.

Home is spacious, yet cozy. Pictures don't do it justice. Kitchen is well laid out and has the basic equipment needed to pull together anything from a quick breakfast to a full dinner - provided you've gone shopping, of course! We also made use of the BBQ grill to grill steaks on the 4th of July.

Insects and critters were no problem at all. We didn't see a single one in the house the whole time we were there.

All in all, we had a wonderful, relaxing time here.

Mahalo & Aloha!
