OCEANFRONT PARADISE THAT SLEEPS 8

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...

YES THE WHALES ARE THIS CLOSE! 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.

Leah GalloNew London, PennsylvaniaP.S. The house is wonderful too!_

Year-round rate range is $115 - $355 per night, depending upon party size and dates of your visit. Cleaning fee ranges from $125 to $180, also depending upon party size.

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.

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!

Reviewer Comments:
The view out the upstairs is amazing ! you can even get sprayed by the waves hitting the cliff right out front . one thing is that there is a path to the cliff right next to the wall out front and you get a lot of people parking there and walking out on the cliff there. The ocean breeze was always nice and seemed to die down just in time to grill dinner before dark. A little out of the way ,but once u get settled in it's a nice place to stay. the small stuff ,pots and pans
knifes and forks, glasses could be updated but all was useable.

The home was everything we expected. Great location. Quiet. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. However, the beds upstairs have very firm and uncomfortable mattresses.

Reviewer Comments:
This house looks nice, and yes the house is exactly like the pictures. Great view, older house that's been nicely renovated. What no other review mentioned is this house smells of mould. Really badly. So badly that my sister slept on the lani in her sleeping bag and my dad slept in the jeep. Everyone who managed to get through the nights had stuffed noses and headaches.

Reviewer Comments:
We had a very good time during our week at Mele Kohola. Even when some rain squalls rolled in of the ocean the sea was always spectacular. We did have some problem getting the DVD player to play but that was fixed promptly. A ceiling fan in the bedroom with the king bed is needed to cool down the room but we made out fine upstairs with the queen bed. A nice bowl for making salids would be nice. These little things were not a big deal and enjoying the ocean, the waves, and watching whales was wonderful. We may come back next year.
