Kailua-Kona House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 4 bath, with pool, ocean views, and two lanais

Perfect for families! This house has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and TWO covered lanais. Enough room for everyone to have some space! Check out the BRAND NEW kitchen! New cabinets, granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances.

Located on the gentle slope of Hualalai, just enough elevation to feel the cooling afternoon breezes.

Imagine relaxing by the pool listening to the soothing waterfall. You can grill up that local fish and dine outside in the gazebo. Your senses will enjoy the lovely yard with tropical flowers and plants.

Time for sunset? Grab your traditional sunset cocktail and relax while soaking up the beautiful ocean views from your TWO lanais.

Only five minutes to Kailua town, full of shopping and great restaurants, and even closer for groceries and the health food store.

You may just stay by the pool all day, but if you do decide to go to the beach we have lots of toys, towels, beach chairs, and coolers for you to use.

About Rachel Donnell

We purchased this beautiful home so we can come together with all our families and enjoy quality time together. And of course, the kids love the pool!

Rachel Donnell purchased this house in 2013

Why Rachel Donnell chose Kona Coast

This house is in a great neighborhood on a corner lot. So close to town, yet has such a private feeling that you can't get with a condominium. A perfect combination!

What makes this house unique

Whether it is sitting by the pool watching the kids play or relaxing on the lanais with the beautiful ocean views, there is a true feeling of Hawaii.

Your private oasis at Melelina Hale

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Melelina Hale for 8 days. This place is fabulous in so many ways: private heated pool, kitchen with everything you could imagine, AC, garage, wonderful view of the bay from the two front decks, tropical landscaping and more. The location is perfect if you are wanting a home base and plan to visit all areas of the island. The setting is so peaceful that I recommend chilling out at least one full day at the house if not more. The agent was friendly, helpful and quick to respond to inquiries. I hope to visit Melelina Hale again.

Wonderful Home, Wondeful Stay

  • 5 of 5

WOW....this house is amazing. We walked in and were overwhelmed by it's size and beautiful it was. This fit our family perfectly from a main floor bedroom for my elderly dad to lots of space upstairs for all the other family members. We hosted a small get together for my son who got married in Kona, and the house easily accommodated everyone! From an extra fridge in the garage to a shower off the pool, full size washer and dryer, this house met every need. We would definitely rent this again and Rachel was super easy to work with :) Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Wonderful large home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight adults thoroughly enjoyed this home. Rachel was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and very accommodating to our needs. The pool area was large and very private and the lanais were great to watch the views. The kitchen was well stocked and we used it for almost all of our meals. It was so nice to have all of the pool and beach equipment so that we didn't have to buy or bring it with us. Having plenty of towels and a laundry was also a great bonus! It was so nice to come "home" after a day of exploring. Thank you so much for making our family trip such a memorable experience!

A Perfect Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as the pictures show, and Rachel was great to work with. Our flights were late getting in, and it was great to explore and find a delightful place to spend time with the family. The kids thought having a pool was the best, and made really good use of all the pool and ocean gear. It was delightful to BBQ every evening and enjoy eating outside under the stars, a real treat for Albertan's in the winter. We all enjoyed the many beautiful plants in your yard - we call them house plants here. We have lost of gecko pictures, and found them charming. We ran out of time site seeing on the Big Island, and am sure we will be back to see more. Your home is so handy to everything. Thanks Rachel for the a great was the best for us.

Roost with a view

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you pull in the driveway, to the minute you open the door this house will not let you down! Oohs and Ahs await you with every step you take. The photos are exact but one remains in awe by the seeing the home in person. Well equipped with every(and I mean every) thing one needs for a vacation in paradise. The only thing you need is groceries. There are grocery stores within 3 miles (Safeway, Costco, Walmart). Fresh fruit awaits you on the kitchen table. When you need more fruit, go the Farmers Market in Kona and buy from the locals! Pool is awesome and grilling by it is perfect. If you want to hit a beach, there is an abundance of gear in the garage for use. We didn't have any little ones with us but there are "pack-n-plays" and highchairs too. There is plenty of room in this home so you will not be falling all over one another. Besides the pool our favorite place was the kitchen. We had a lot of laughs and cocktails around the counter!!! Oh and the reason for the review name...a turkey roosted in the tree across the street, so every evening before sunset you heard him gobble! Rachel, Mahalo for sharing your piece of paradise to travelers. Jenn and Family from Remsen NY, Home of Olympic Luge Bronze Medal Winner Erin Hamlin

Family Friendly Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent two weeks around the winter holidays at this lovely home with three kids (two toddlers and one little girl) and six adults. We were worried at first about bringing the kids to a place that may not be kid friendly but we were pleasantly surprised. The place was spacious with relatively "baby friendly" furniture. The kitchen had slow closing cabinets and drawers. They even had a high chair available for feedings.

Melelina Hale provided our large family with enough space to roam about and never felt cramped during our stay. The sunset and views on the two upper lanais were spectacular.

The pool and the baby pool was one of the highlights at the house and a perfect activity for the mornings and afternoons before a big adventure. When we had issues with the pool temperature, Rachel immediately called for the pool guy. She was extremely responsive. Finally, the place was centrally located so we were able to pick up almost any thing with a short drive. You can also bike to the beach and the stores from the house.

I see us renting this place again.
