A little off the beaten track. Small road with an entrance that's easy to miss if you don't know where you are going. Mel Supplies great directions. Spacious, quiet, peaceful. Just some of the things I loved about this place. Wonderful north view of the whale sanctuary and the south end of Maui Island. 2 miles from Hawi town. Lots to do there. Some great restaurants. Farmers market was fun. Great place to travel from.
Wonderful clean suite. Lots of room. Free calling on the phone to US mainland and Canada. Sat TV. Great lanai out front. This is a very private place. Being out in the country there is usually geckos visiting on the lanai in the evening.
Mel brings a great breakfast every morning. Well presented and better than most restaurants. Good value there.
Mel is a gracious host and you might never see him except for breakfast. He supplies beach equipment. We were there for 2 weeks and he cleaned the towels and sheets every 3-4 days.
This is a quiet place to get away from the resorts and explore the north end of Hawaii. Mel is a gracious, helpful host who cooks a great breakfast and respects his guests' privacy. He will give good travel tips upon request. Lovely peaceful view, well-equipped unit.
I absolutely loved Mel's place and would definitely stay there again. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was great and I enjoyed cooking there. I even got to use the desk for some work I had to do. Mel was so friendly and prepared breakfast every day he was there. The location is wonderful if you love North Kohala, but know that It is quite a drive to Kona and even further from Volcano, so take that into account if you want to travel to these places frequently. On the other hand, North Kohala is special, as is swimming in Mahukona, the nearby villages of Hawi and Kapaau are easy-going, and both South Kohala with its beaches and the Hamakua coast are easily reached. The view of Maui is also fabulous on a clear day. Recommended!
