Overview
Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Keaau, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
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 hig...

Mahalo for your feedback, Rebecca. We are so sorry that Mele Kohola did not meet your expectations. This is an older home, and it does show its age. The rainforest climate and direct ocean front location do take their toll. Guests who are used to...More

This home is absolutely amazing! Stayed here as the first part of our Hawaii vacation. Was perfect to relax on the lava rock cliffs watching and listening to the waves crash on shore. Perfect for relaxation. Close to Hilo and volcano national park. Would stay...More
