Hale Mele Mele is one of Puako’s original beach cottages lovingly restored, refreshed and redecorated to feel like home-away-from-home. The fully-equipped kitchen, while compact, has all you need to prepare home-cooked meals utilizing some of the Big Island’s delicious fresh fish, meats, fruits and veggies.  Beautiful quartz countertops and open shelving with colorful dishware complete the charm.The air-conditioned sitting room/dining area just off the kitchen provides a hang-out for friends or family to socialize during meal prep. Conveniently located off the kitchen, is the home’s full bathroom, with a charming and private indoor/outdoor shower accessible from the house or the carport; great for rinsing off salt, sand and sunscreen after a day in the ocean. Where else but the tropics can you bathe with nature year round?

The air-conditioned main bedroom is located adjacent and accessible to the garden lanai providing picturesque views of lush, tropical plants and trees plus the melody of local bird song. Collapse into relaxation at the end of your day in the comfy queen-size four-poster bed. A half-bath is located just down the hall, thru the second bedroom, we call the “kids room.” This second room, with its multiple beds, a full-size and a twin-size, is perfect for the younger generation or singles.If another sleeping spot is needed, there is also a four-poster bed off the living area. It is NOT a bedroom, per se, as there are no walls or doors but it does provide another bed for a child, a single, or a snorer. The entertainment room with its many windows showing off the lush landscaping is the ideal spot to relax with a good book or to watch one of your favorite shows on the flat-screen TV. At the mountain side of the property, the owner has created a back yard oasis with tropical plants, mango trees, flowers and plenty of room for kids at play while steaks are sizzling on the grill.
