“Could have been heavenly”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2015

This is a beautiful home, very spacious and the décor is really beautiful the views are amazing as well. However, the house is situated just so that there are people right in front of the property constantly. Fishing, whale watching, picture taking etc. I really was hoping for privacy but that was not that case at all. Beyond that the alarm in the house kept going off and there was no code so we had to figure it out on our own in the middle of the night :-0 Also on our last night the water catchment system ran out of water so after a long day of snorkeling there was no water for showers, bathroom runs, washing hands, cooking etc. It was quite upsetting. I feel bad for the owners I know it was not their fault but our stay was not as relaxing and private as I had thought it would be.:-( So if you are looking for privacy this is not the home for you. If you don't care it is a beautiful home with great views. It also lacked quite a bit of necessary kitchen items which made cooking, bbqing and baking hard.

Response from the manager Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your perspective, the ocean is public in Hawaii. We cannot legally block it off and prevent people from coming there. And in whale watching season, people do like to look. That does mean that people may walk in front of the property. Hawaii is a paradise that sometimes includes other people. The lack of rain has meant beautiful weather -- and a drought and low catchment systems. Another curse of paradise. We will definitely check into the kitchen utensil situation and have that resolved. Thank you for your feedback.

“5 days in Mele Kohola”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2012

This property was very nice. The furniture was in great condition and it was also very clean. The views were absolutely incredible and sunrise every morning was beautiful. We were also impressed that we were provided with drinking water and basic would have been nice if it was included in the description that the tap water was non-potable. We would not stay here again however, for only 2 reasons. The upstairs queen bed was terribly hard and uncomfortable (we tossed and turned all night) and we could not sleep in the downstairs king as the entire bottom floor had a very bad smell.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the location. Just to clarify, the water IS potable, we just know that some guests are wary of catchment system water. We do insure that the quaity of the tap water IS drinkable. The bottles of water are for your comfort. We're sorry about the bed and smell issues. We do have our 24hr guarantee and would have happily re-located you. Not every bed works for every body and we have not had any other complaints about this one. Mahalo, Hawaii Holiday Management

House is now tan, not blue--better!! View is just awesome. We were totally relaxed here. Looks like a decorator designed the rooms (Old Hawaiian)--freshly painted. Very comfortable beds & everything you need in the kitchen. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home. Andy & Jeannine

Everything worked pretty well. Only point was that we've been unknown about the 'weather conditions' on the Hilo side of the Island. But on the other hand we’ve loved the vegetation of this area.

It requires a drive to put your feet in the water, but the view is awesome!

“Our wonderful stay at Mele Kahola”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2011

Incredible view, even though we weren't there during whale season. Loved the constant cool breeze. Who needs air conditioning. The location is excellent. Easy access to Hawaii Volcanoes Nat. Park. 15min drive from Walmart. Far enough away that it gives you a feeling of being away from it all. Property was very clean and well maintained.

Absolutely Beautiful! Very Comfortable! Truely Paradise and on Paradise road. I would stay there again in a minute. Almost a religious experience. God Is Good and the Gods are Good. Enjoy your stay.

“Great location”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2011

The rental was supplied with almost everything we needed -- including umbrellas and binoculars. We did see whales in the bay two days of our stay. Being on the ocean (even during a tsunami evacuation) was beautiful. The rental agent called to warn us of the tsunami warnings. The location was rural but near enough to Hilo, Pahoa and Volcanoes National Park for day trips. Another plus was the high speed internet line which allowed us to contact family after returning from tsunami evacuation. We had been asked by government not to use phones during evacuation to keep lines open for emergency personnel. There were a few things that need to be addressed to make stays more pleasant for guests. One of the features listed for the rental was a hot tub, which we looked forward to using. However, the cover was very heavy (water-logged, which occurs with covers)and deteriorated. It was difficult and awkward to remove the cover, even for two people working at it. Since covers on hot tubs become water-logged over time, most people have a cover lift (hinged metal bar) to make cover removal easy. We only used the hot tub twice in a two week stay. Also, the screens on the sliding doors did not slide easily, but we finally got them to work more easily by spraying the sliding track with WD40. We would suggest housekeeper spray them prior to each guests stay. It would also be nice to have either a dust mop or broom in the house to use for sweeping the floor, so a vacuum did not have to be used. The check-out info posted on the refrigerator listed an item about leaving the key and remote for the gate on the kitchen counter. Those were not there when we arrived and I told the rental agent that the item needs to be deleted from the check-out instructions. We enjoyed our two weeks at Mele Kohola which were restful and relaxing. We discovered that the area on Beach Rd (one road uphill from house) was a great place for walking, fishing and had public area w
