Welcome to Mele Kai (Song of the Sea) on the unspoiled, stunning Puna coast
Welcome to Mele Kai (Song of the Sea) located on the unspoiled, stunning Puna coastline, with ocean views from every room! When you close the gate and step through the doors of this extraordinary home you'll be captivated by its unique and bold architecture.
This magnificent home boasts over 2300 sq ft of living space and has a grand open floor plan encompassing a living room, dining area and huge gourmet kitchen with top of the line stainless steel appliances. Step out the huge glass sliding door to the lanai where you can relax, take in the panoramic ocean views or dine under the evening stars.
One of the wonderful features of this home is its private master bedroom suite with walk-in closet, your own private lanai, luxurious master bathroom with granite counter tops, double sink and stunning stone walk-in shower. There are also two generous guest bedrooms located on the first level, one with a queen size bed and the other with a full size bed. The guest bedrooms feature sliding glass doors that allow you to walk right out to the ocean. In the hallway between the guest bedrooms is a full bathroom with custom indoor/outdoor stone walk-in shower with dual shower heads for the ultimate experience.
And at the end of the day enjoy soaking in the hot tub, while experiencing the tropical breezes and the soothing sounds of the sea. And, if you visit during the winter months, watch the amazing humpback whales that show off all along the shore, often coming in pairs or with babies.
Mele Kai is your perfect, private getaway, just steps from the ocean.

Huge house...nice local feel.
Mele Kai was a good House. It’s huge open floor plan was great..the HotTub on the screened in porch off the kitchen living area was nice to have...good for relaxing even when it’s raining out(which was most of the time) there is a nice local feel to the property. Big master suite with cool views...overall a good experience.
Great house to get away from it all.
This house is beautifully designed and constructed. The open layout is great for vacations. The huge master bath with walk-in shower made mornings a treat. The custom tile work was very Island appropriate.
Features we especially enjoyed were the wifi, laundry, and that there were enough basics like condiments and paper products to get us started.
The views were awesome and we loved falling asleep to the rhythm of the surf. The neighborhood was quiet and felt safe and secure.
We saw whales playing a couple hundred yards offshore. That was a treat.
I probably would have gone 5 stars except for the appliances that are in desparate need of upgrading. We tried to re-heat some pizza we brought from a restaurant in Pahoa, but the hinge was broken on the oven door and we could not get it to close. Also, the oven door had baked on crud on the outside and peeling coating. The toaster should just be tossed. And the refrigerator has a failing compressor unit that knocks 3 or 4 times when it cycles off. The first time we heard it do that was the night we checked in and it sounded like someone knocking on a window!
The location is beautiful but a long way from stores or restaurants. We mostly eat out on vacation, so this was not great for us. But, it was closer to the items of interest on the south part of the island, like Volcanoes NP, so for that it was good.
Despite the appliances, which I am sure will be fixed at some point, we loved it here and would definitely consider it if we visit the Big Island again.
Great place to view the giant surf from the past week.
Loved this house. It has a LOT of room and nobody feels cramped or crowded. Just close enough to the sea to get the soothing sounds at night and no need for AC with the breezes. The only downside was the oven had a few issues with the door, and the hot tub had a heavy chemical smell, so we avoided it. No need for it anyway, because we found it a perfect place to get to everything on that side of the island. Short drive to the botanical garden, and not far to the Volcano or lava trees.
Fantastic location with wonderful view of the ocean. Beautiful house.
High ceilings kept the house cool. Generous roof overhangs kept the rain from the windows. We enjoyed the hot tub!
We've already booked our next visit.
Unique home with great ocean lava cliff views of sunrise
While remote location, this house was really cool, spacious and lovely views from the lanai. Short walk to the cliffs overlooking the ocean and great spot to watch the sunrises on the lava. Well stocked kitchen and soft beds. Master suite is amazing, and the outdoor shower for the downstairs bedrooms was certainly invigorating...quite chilly air in the morning but nice hot water! Pretty easy to find location, but glad we did it in the daytime the first day- it seems like you drive forever down a hilly street with no lighting. We never found the guestbook to sign, but would have said thank you- we enjoyed our stay! One suggestion-light on exterior door would have been helpful to retrieve the key from lockbox each night...it was a little finicky to maneuver in the dark.
Kim's group were very good guests and we'd rent to them again anytime!
A true Hawaiin retreat!!!
This house is spectacular and the pictures do not do it justice. Amazing views with ocean breezes. The house is very clean with all the amenities. Kitchen is well stocked. The house is open and airy. We absolutely loved the outdoor shower. You are close enough to enjoy volcano national park (45minutes) and the area of Hilo(20 minutes) but far enough to have quiet and solitude to relax. This house was truly a getaway especially after a day of sightseeing. The neighborhood was pretty and quiet with a lot of newer homes in the area. Juan was very attentive and made us feel right at home. The booking process was very easy. I cannot say enough about this place.
Mele Kai is centrally located on the windward side of the Big Island: 20 minutes from Hilo. 45 minutes from the Volcano National Park, 20 minutes from Pahoa Town, and a short drive to shopping and restaurants. Great places to hike, snorkel, kayak, and enjoy the Big Island.
