Listing Remarks

Mele Kai, “Song of the Sea" has returned. 

This pristinely appointed island sanctuary features world-class design, stunning craftsmanship and 174 feet of direct Kailua Kona ocean frontage.

Designed by award-winning architect Glen Bell, principal of Venice based DEX Studio, Mele Kai’s interiors embrace the “Song of the Sea”, for which the property was named, and draw inspiration from the vibrant hues of the Pacific Ocean.

Each of Mele Kai’s five oceanfront bedrooms features custom parachute bedding, La Cantina foldable doors, and bespoke wall coverings by New York-based designer Jill Malek.

Five private en-suite bathrooms are equipped with upscale Grohe fixtures, modern lighting, and walk-in showers featuring hand-painted vertically laid tile.

No expense was spared in designing the property’s 1,000 square feet of exterior space. Enjoy your morning Kona coffee on the fully furnished lanai spaces perched high above Kahalu’u Bay. Indulge in an afternoon swim in the newly redesigned lap pool with custom lava rock waterfall, and prepare dinner on the outdoor barbecue.

The dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows offer an abundance of natural light and spectacular vantage points from every room.

The fully equipped kitchen is outfitted with Bertazzoni Appliances, and a custom-designed, bespoke backsplash and complementary wall art that present a captivating and harmonious focal point for the space. The home comes fully furnished, and offers zoned air conditioning.

As one of the only properties on Ali’i Drive with beach access and ample amount of sand in the lava rock environment. Enjoy private, direct beach access!

Bed and breakfast license allows you the opportunity to operate your own licensed bed & breakfast for up to 10 guests.

A combination of contemporary, high end touches, and spectacular redesign are yours - at Mele Kai, on The Big Island of Hawai’i.
