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!

Perfect vacation rental
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.
Big, comfortable house in a great location!
My husband, my sister, and my brother-in law, and I stayed in this house for four days in March 2018. The house is huge!! We had plenty of room to spread out and do our own thing. The house is adequately furnished throughout, and there wasn't anything that we needed. The views are amazing from the deck and the cliff edge. There is no barrier between the house and the edge of the cliff so be extremely careful if you have children. The house, especially the basement, had a musty smell from being shut up, but it quickly abated when we opened the windows, turned on the fan, and let the breeze blow through. We found the location was perfect for exploring the Hilo side of the island, and we loved all the ideas and locations the owner provided in the house notebook. The only downer was that it rained hard everyday we were there. If you have a large group, consider this place. Mahalo!
Overall it was okay
it has a vice view
We really enjoyed our stay and will be back. No ac but it did cool off on the evening. Had everything we needed and great view
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!!

The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
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.
Whale-Watching (December-March), Swimming in Thermally Heated Pond, Farmers' Market, Golfing at Volcano Country Club Course and golf courses in Hilo and around the Island. Hilo is less than 30 minutes away and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park about an hour. It is a 2-1/2 hour drive to Kona and Kohala white sand beaches. Nearest restaurants located in Pahoa and Keaau (20 minutes).
