  • Happy little house


    We loved the house—cozy, beautifully decorated, and walking distance to store and restaurants. The only thing missing is a view—but there are guys ones not so far away.

  • Home away from home


    Mele Mele is a very comfortable and private house in an excellent location, with easy access to the beach, restaurants and a relaxed but hopping bar. We spent a whole day lounging at the beach, courtesy of the house’s chairs and sand umbrella - no need to bring, buy or rent anything.

  • A Beautiful Oasis in Kauai


    This place was wonderful and great for groups and family! Walking distance to the beach and the host offers beach chairs and other water toys. Kitchen is well stocked to cook meals at home. AC and Fans are available. Great communication with the host. Would definitely stay here again!

  • Great location! Very laid back


    We couldn’t have picked a better location - we were literally out the back gate and a block to the beach. Hotel across the street had amazing outdoor beachside dining, live entertainment, great mai tais, cornhole, and other yard games. Watched the full moon come up from there, it was fantastic. House was cozy and beach chic….great size for our family of four. outdoor pavilion was fun for evening cocktails. Very quick drive to airport and thirty minute access to west side beaches. My son wanted to test his one surf lesson using the board at the cabin, so we took that and the great condition chairs to a beach on the west side that had a life guard and snorkeling. Only one full set of gear, but we took turns. House is baby friendly - saw high chair seat and pacnplay and every outlet had a plastic safety device in it. Coffee pot does not turn off on its own - don’t forget. Checkin was easy and host was accommodating. Nice to have a personal contact. Only negative was the sound of the standup fans, you couldn’t have a conversation if they were on, but it did drown out the roosters.

  • Perfect for a family with teens


    We really enjoyed our stay at Melemele cottage. It offered a perfect blend of a local feel along with access to more touristy sights. Our teens enjoyed the independence of walking across to the beach and restaurants and having their own room (which we don't often get in a hotel). The house itself was super cute and we LOVED waking up to birds and breeze each morning with the windows open. A perfect Hawaiian getaway!
