As of 8 July 2021, travelers must either show vaccination card or must show 72 hour negative COVID test prior to arrival. 10-day quarantine isn't an option for our place, (Hawaii county). We hope you enjoy this stunning waterfront home with a full kitchen and three lanais! Escape the harried urban existence and relax to the whisper of waves breaking on the shoreline and feel the caress of gentle trade wind breezes. Downstairs has separate living area with wet bar, queen bedroom, and bathroom.

The space
Watch whales jump right outside! This home has been known as "Mele Kohola" which means "Song of the Whale" in Hawaiian and they will entertain you day and night (in season, of course, January-March). The waters in front of Mele Kohola are very deep, and the coastline is shaped in a gentle cove tempting the whales and dolphins to play very close to shore. Enjoy the unobstructed bi-coastal views from almost every room in the house including the front and back lanais. 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 cosy enough for a romantic getaway. If you must work, there is an office provided for you with a roomy desk, high-speed internet access, and printer. The large back lanai has an outdoor table and barbecue and there are two front lanais. Yes, this is paradise!

Things to know:
Free Wifi
Full Kitchen with a dishwasher
No Air Conditioning, but the ocean breeze is always blowing and keeps the home cool all year round.
