About this listing

Our home is the perfect place for your vacation. We have tried to think of everything to make your Hawaii vacation comfortable and relaxing. Enjoy our wonderful Hale. We are close to many of the main attractions on Hawaii Island. Hale Melemele is located in a quiet area about 30 minutes from the Hilo airport. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing vacation this is the spot for you. Come and enjoy nature and all Hawaii Island has to offer.

The space

Our home is located in a perfect location where you are not in the path of the lava flow but close enough to have great viewing if you so choose.

Relax and enjoy our hale. Hale Melemele is a very comfortable and newly built 2 bedroom/2 bath home.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with a private bathroom. The guest bedroom has 2 double beds. Our home has 2 bathrooms. Both have full bathtubs/showers for relaxing after a long day of exploring.

Our kitchen is modern with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. It is stocked with everything you need to make a gourmet meal.

We have towels, beach towels, lots of extra sheets, and blankets for your comfort. We will provide toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo/conditioner, soap, and trash bags to get you started. You need to purchase the consumables you may want during your stay.

Hale Melemele is Located on Hawaii island, in Pahoa.
We enjoy escaping, "The Big City," to relax here. Hale Melemele has high speed internet, satellite TV, and a full kitchen with all the amenities to make your stay comfortable.
Hale Melemele is family friendly. It is very comfortable for just 2, but offers plenty of room for a group of  6. There is a screened in lanai on the back of the house great for relaxing and reading a great book outside while enjoying the tropical fauna.
Our house is located on a quiet street but only 5 minutes from Pahoa town where there is great dining and shopping.
It is quiet enough to feel like you are in the country but close enough to town that you don't feel out of touch. 15 minutes from the beach, 20 minutes to view the lava, and 25 minutes from the airport.
There is also a car available for rent with this house. It can be at the airport waiting for you when you arrive.
We are close to the lava viewing and amazing snorkeling. If you enjoy the out doors this area of Hawaii is great for you. There are amazing hikes and beaches waiting for you to explore.
While you are enjoying our home we hope you are as happy and comfortable as we are. We love this area and you hope you enjoy the big island as much as we do.
Public transportation is not great on the big isle and we recommend you have a car to be able to enjoy all Hawaii Island has to offer.
Look for plumeria vacation rentals to view more about the surrounding area and ideas on what to do while visit.

IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE: No one will be at the house upon your arrival. We live on another island. We do have house managers who are close if you need anything.

Once you enter the house you will find two keys for your use on the dining table. Please return the key to the lockbox. We have had people forget to put the key back in the lock box on departure. This makes it difficult for our cleaning crew to come in and get the house ready for the next tenant.

If you're looking for privacy, warmth, and coziness in a secluded location (which is still close to places and things to see), then this is the place for you:) There's a reason Faith and her house here have such good reviews. We loved it! Faith was accommodating and responsive.

It was a very peaceful and comfortable stay. A distance from the main parts of town but very pleasant. The house came equipt with everything we needed. My children were also able to use the toys and books found in the home. We would definitely look into renting Faith's home in the future.

Great place and Faith is communicated well, we didn't have any trouble finding the place. It is a beautiful house and inviting. It is fully furnished as it shows in the pictures. However place is in little bit outside of town and feels like in woods. Be prepared to stock up food and to cook, no good restaurants near. by.

Response from Faith:
The grocery store is 10 minutes from our house and there are several restaurants in Pahoa town. Kaleo's is good. There is a Thai restaurant, Italian restaurant, and 2 pizza places. I perfer the New York pizzaria myself. Black Rock Cafe is good too.

The little out of the way town of Pahoa, HI is close to Volcano National Park on the ocean side near the current flow. Faiths place in Pahoa was comfortable and we had plenty of space. The enclosed screened in porch was the best, as we sat out every morning and evening listening to the coqui frogs and all the other wonderful sounds of nature. It was a concerto performance you'll never forget. Dinner in town at Kaleo's was superb. There is a local market you'll find fresh produce and regular grocery store items. Sirius coffee makes a good latte'. I recommend Faiths place as comfortable and affordable accommodations.
