  • I stopped by the Wailuku store and checked out the beautiful Mele Ukuleles. I didn't end up purchasing anything, but met the owner and she told me about the history of the store and answered any questions I had. The young man working there (Skylar IIRC) was helpful and played the different ukuleles I was interested in so I could hear the sound from someone who could actually play well. (I cannot) Will definitely be back to buy one on my next visit to Maui. (BTW, the Paia store is larger and also very good)
  • I bought a Koa Tenor and a Mango double hole Concert ukelele. I love how both distinct sounds they produce. Hand carried the Tenor back to Chicago and had them ship the concert. Shipment was quick and packaging was good that I received my ukulele in perfect shape. Mahalo very much Annie Tran, Arlie Asiu (greatest uke teacher 😉) , Mike and Cheryl Rock(owners) for the hospitality and service.
  • My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Maui! A must-do item was to play a ukulele in Maui and I not only got to jam out with Arlie but we also ended up buying 2 for both of us to learn on! Great customer service and very informative on different styles of ukuleles! So very happy we stopped in!
  • I was driving to get lunch during my trip last December when I saw a "Ukelele" sign and knew I had to turn around (when in Rome). I play a little guitar but have never played the ukelele before. The store is a bit hard to get to, I had to do several U-turns but it was def worth the hassle! Local musician Arlie (Avery Asiu) happened to be working that day and he's fantastic. I ended up staying there a couple hours, trying virtually every ukelele in the store while learning the backstory of each line, a bit of uke history, and Arlie's life as a musician in the process. They're so beautiful and sound amazing, especially the handmade/custom ones! After falling in love with the instrument, I purchased one of the beginner ukes with a built-in tuner/pick up and a cute case to go with it and scheduled a lesson with Arlie. Best decision ever! Took it with me to the beach. I even brought my uke with me to Aruba this past month. If you're visiting Maui, you must stop at Mele.
  • Super friendly staff, very nice products ranging from entry to very expensive. Everything you could need to start or expand your ukulele playing game.
