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.

We also own the house next door. If you need more space or have a large family let us know. We can accommodate your group. The house on the next door property is a 3 bedroom/2 bath house that is also a vacation rental. Our hale is great.
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. Please take note of the directions as GPS does not work well in our neighborhood. It usually will take you near our house but doesn't recognize the block our house is on. Also note the lock box code listed below- WE WILL NOT BE THERE TO OPEN THE HOUSE FOR YOU. There will be a key in the box.
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.
