This house was awesome. Overlooks the ocean only a block away, has a jacuzzi, and is large and tastefully decorated. Loved it!

This is the third time we have stayed at Mele Kai.

Mele Kai is a beautiful home with an amazing view...we literally did not mind staying in and just staring out at the ocean EVERY day! We loved to sleep with the windows open and listen to the waves and coqui frogs. We already decided if we make it back to the island, we'll stay here again.

We had 5 people and had so much room. The house is laid out well and the kitchen was big enough for everyone at the same time. So nice to go to sleep with the sound of the waves. there were mostly positives at this place. The only negatives were some issues with the oven door, but we got that one solved. the only other negative was that some of our group weren't thrilled with the outdoor shower in the guest bath, but they learned to live with it. There was quite a bit of late night traffic outside the bedrooms on the ocean side as well.

We very much enjoyed the beach house there is only one problem. The house sits back from the ocean and the road behind the house is where the locals come to party every night from 5-6 until 10-11. The music is loud and there is a lot of broken glass. Otherwise the house has all the amenities one could hope for.

We have absolutely no complaints with the accommodations or the service provided by the rental service. The rooms in the house are extremely large which makes it easier to keep things neat. There are several outdoor lanais. The hot tub is easy to use. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals at home. The view of the ocean is lovely and a short walk takes you out to the shore. The directions given by the rental service were simple and easy to follow. Beach towels were provided for trips to the beach. All in all a great vacation destination.

We stayed for 3 nights in this beautiful house with a beach view . We loved it. It was spacious & had a great time in the Jacuzzi. Kitchen was convenient and you wake up to rooster's singing early in the morning.
