Mele Kohola



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 high-speed Internet. The house is located directly on the ocean in the popular neighborhood of Hawaiian Paradise Park, about 15 miles south of Hilo.
Beautiful furnishings and artistic area rugs on parquet wood floors provide style and comfort during your stay. The main part of the house is on the second floor with two bedrooms, two baths, and the office. The large back lanai (deck) has an outdoor table and barbecue, and there are two front lanais, one off the living area and one off the master bedroom. The first floor has a large open room with living, dining, and kitchenette areas. That level also has a bedroom with a large king bed. The home comes fully equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, and it has a satellite TV, DVD/CD, and washer/dryer.
Out front is an oceanfront Jacuzzi spa with views along the coastline -- dramatic waves crashing against the cliffs with a view that constantly changes. As an extra bonus, you can start your morning with a beautiful sunrise on the horizon. Yes, this is paradise!
