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 visiting.

Interaction with Guests
We are always available by phone but we live on Oahu. We do spend about 1 week a month on Hawaii island but we may not always be there when you are visiting.
We love that our house is located in an area that is only five minutes from Pahoa town. But we also enjoy that it feels like you're in the country. We are located on a quiet road where we own the only houses on the street. We have neighbors that are good friends and live a block away but we are lucky that we don't have houses directly next to us.
Study the Puna area before booking. Make sure this is where you want to be in Hawaii. We are happy to answer any questions you may have. We are located in a remote area. Very different from waikiki. If you enjoy nature this is the place for you. If you're looking for shopping and hustle and bustle this is not the right area for your vacation.

This is our home please respect it and treat it as your own. We have a strict "NO PETS" policy. Please respect this rule. Please conserve electricity. If you take an item from the house to use somewhere else, please return it. If something breaks please let us know. We would like to let our future guests know if some of the amenities won't be available.
Please don't have any large gatherings on our property.
YyPlease remove your shoes before entering the house, this is a Hawaiian tradition.
Hawaii island has the highest electricity in the nation at about $.43/kwh, we ask that you conserve electricity. If you are a long term tenant ( more than 2 weeks), and have any electric bills over $220/month, you must pay the balance over the $220. This will be added to your final charge. The cleaning fee is set at the minimum, there may be additional fees if the home is left dirty.
We throughly enjoyed our stay in this remote slice of paradise. The house is well furnished and had everything we needed for a comfortable, enjoyable stay. Sitting on the lanai in the evening listening to nature's chorus of insects and animals was my favourite part. Bliss!
I didn't actually meet Faith, as she lives on another island, but the houses (we rented both) were nicely decorated, clean, and well appointed. The water didn't work in one of the houses, but we called the number provided and someone was there within minutes to get it fixed. Our stay was very short, but I would happily rent here again for a longer stay. This is a big island and things are further apart than you think, so allow plenty of time to get to anything you want to see. they are central though to the volcano, Hilo, and the black sand beaches, tide pools and beach parks in the Puna area. The houses in the area are far apart, and separated by dense vegetation, so no problem with privacy or noisy neighbors. All in all a lovely place to stay!
Faith was quick to respond and super easy to coordinate the rental with. The house was as advertised, clean, comfortable, full of goodies (coolers, beach towels, camp chairs) and made for a great base for exploration of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hilo, and other parts of the Big Island.
The house is in a quiet, peaceful area about 10-15 minutes from Pahoa where you'll find food, gas, restaurants, etc.
Check out the November 2014 lava flow at the nearby Pahoa transfer station, black sand beach at Punaluu Beach Park (sea turtles can be seen here), Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Rainbow Falls, Akaka Falls, and the Maku'u Farmers Market.
Hosts like Faith are what makes staying in an AirBNB rental great!!
What a beautiful house! My favourite AirBnb on Hawaii so far! And calm, peaceful surroundings full of bird song. Conveniently located close to Pahoa (5 min), Kapoho Tide pools (20 min, awesome snorkeling), Isaac Hale Beach (15 min), and not too far from Hilo. Faith was easy to communicate with and very friendly.
Many amenities provided: fast W-Lan, tons of kitchen utensils, washing machine & dryer, beach towels ...
Would absolutely come and stay again!
I could go around my booked house. But, it not exact point. The house was departed for 100 meters from the nominated house address. But, With great lucky, I met one so kind neighborhood and he guided me. But, at this time, When I arrived at my booked house, other guest couple are staying at same address & house. At first, I was so surprised. But, In 10 minutes, I contacted with host by phone. The host can solve this problem that she rent near by house. I suggest that the location was fantastic that you can see countless stars at night, and so lot of fortress. My family was so happy at Faith Caldeira's house.
