COZY 3BR/2BA HOME IN WAIMEA ... NEAR TOWN & BEACHES

Waipio House Rental Photos and Description

Cozy 3BR/2BA Home In Waimea ... Near Town & Beaches

The Waimea Mele Hale has been completely renovated with new appliances, new fixtures, new furnishings, new memory foam beds & bedding, new floors, etc. Enjoy a good book or TV show in front of a wood-burning potbelly fireplace, or barbecue on the front lanai (porch) with a view of Mauna Kea.

It is a BIG island! It's best to give yourself days to explore. It's a well-known local secret to enjoy the coastal activities, bake during the day, then head to higher elevations for cooler evenings and no need for air conditioning. Situated in Waimea, this comfortable cottage-like house gives you access to the West side beautiful beaches and the East side rain forests. This Hawaiian old plantation style home is cozy and can handle a maximum of 6 guests (including children). The house is only two minutes off of the belt highway (Hawaii Belt Road) which encircles the entire island. This is a great location for touring different sides on different days. Sitting on the slopes of the Kohala Mountains, this house has moderate temperatures, averaging from about 55–75 degrees F. The hale sits on a hill with its backyard dropping down to a seasonal stream bed, a private respite in a subdivision (no parties, nor loud noise, please).

This locale is within 8 minutes of two grocery store shopping centers, over 20 eateries, multiple farmers markets, health food store, art galleries, and Starbucks to boot.

The activities on the Big Island are endless.

Two boogie boards, 6 beach chairs and beach towels, and a cooler are supplied for your ocean fun!

E Komo Mai! (Welcome!)

WONDERFUL WAIMEA

  • 4 of 5
My sister and I spent six nights at Mele Hale In May and this is what we found: Mele Hale is a calm, welcoming home away from home. It’s recently been renovated and the owner has paid attention both to detail and your comfort. Everything is new and spotless. All you need is provided and it’s placed just where you’d expect to find it. The house sleeps six comfortably in the bedrooms - no one is relegated to the living room sofa bed or futon. Natural ventilation allows the cool evening breezes to circulate throughout the house, and Waimea’s 2,700-foot elevation ensures that it’s always comfortable during the day. The house is on top of a hill, so the view is expansive when the skies are clear. In the morning and evening you may see the neighborhood’s nominally wild turkeys as they wander through the local landscape. Your quiet stay is ensured by the home’s location near the end of the road in an established residential neighborhood.

Now that you know how comfortable you’ll be, it’s time to concentrate on the location of Mele Hale in the fun town of Waimea, with its paniolo heritage, modern conveniences, and nearness to the famous beaches and resorts of South Kohala. It’s a great springboard for exploration of the former sugar towns of North Kohala, the waterfalls and lush vegetation of the Hamakaua coast, and the vibrant visitor attractions in Kailua-Kona. It’s even close enough to the visitor center and summit of 14,000-foot Mauna Kea for a late-afternoon/early evening visit to watch the sunset and learn about cutting-edge discoveries in astronomy at this world-renowned viewing site.

your review does a marvelous job of capturing the essence of Mele Hale, and its fabulous island surroundings. All my guests to date have described the hale as having a "good feel" to it. It is with pleasure that I can share it!
Kipa Hou Mai!

THE PERFECT GETAWAY- THANK YOU, PAGE!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved every minute of our stay at Mele Hale! Page is a wonderful host who was so helpful and available at anytime we had questions about the beautiful Big Island. First off, the house is in amazing condition, and everything in the home is brand new. Even the house smells new, the furniture and beds are so comfortable, and the open kitchen facing the living room space was perfect for us to cook, play games, and hang as a family (we didn't even watch tv with all the fun to be had, although they had directv if you want it). The moment we got there, Page left us yummy Hawaiian Mac nuts, lent us boogie boards, and beach chairs and a cooler to keep us ready to go to the beach! She told us about Waipio valley, and Kiholo bay, and the best food spots on the west side of island and on the coast, so we did them all! While at the house, we kept the windows and sliding doors to deck open to let the amazing fresh air come through every day. The neighborhood is quiet enough to hear the leaves in the wind. The house is so close to this adorable cowboy Waimea town, so we would get coffee and fresh picked fruit from farmers markets in the mornings and eat it on the deck. We hiked up behind the house into the giant green rolling hills one afternoon, and the views are breathtaking. The pictures on Page's listing can't do the yard justice, but it's just surrounded with bright green jungle ferns and plants and drops down into a little stream bed you can hear the water. We loved the privacy of the backyard, and the general privacy feeling of the home even if it's within a neighborhood, bc the trees separate all the homes- the locals sure know how to live well! I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at Mele Hale, and how awesome of a host Page is. We won't be staying anywhere else if/when we come back to Big Island. BIGGEST thank you, Page! Aloha!
