Keaau house description

SEA WATCH, an award-winning two-bedroom, two-bathroom, oceanfront jewel is nestled just 90 feet from the ocean's edge yet is protected by the 20-foot lava cliff. Sea Watch is the ideal place to honeymoon, no matter how long you've been married. The small, cozy residential area is quiet and peaceful - the perfect "peace" of paradise. Sit inside this beautiful home or lounge outside on the roomy lanai while you are entertained by dolphins and sea turtles year round and humpback whales during the winter months. Watch these majestic creatures give birth and then train their young; listen to them breath, blow and vocalize many nights.

We try to provide everything you might need, from espresso machine to a Tiger rice cooker; from
free internet access to free long distance calling to anywhere in the USA and Canada.
Sea Watch is also well equipped for those days at the beach with beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and coolers. We even provide fishing poles so you can fish from your own front yard. (see our room by room list of amenities below)

Sea Watch is minutes from the newest and biggest lava flow, Volcano National Park, black sand beaches, tropical gardens, waterfalls, golf, hiking, warm water ponds, tide pools that are ideal for snorkeling, farmers' markets, a small zoo, and more. Guests return again and again, which tells you a lot about Sea Watch. Come stay at Sea Watch and let us spoil you forever.

                        My husband and I stayed at the Sea Watch for a week and just loved our time there. The house is spacious and beautiful. My husband cooked breakfast and supper there each night and the kitchen was well equipped to create lovely meals with fresh food on the island. The lanai is relaxing and overlooks a beautiful view of the ocean. The house was very clean and comfortable. Sam, the owner, was helpful and kind. I couldn't recommend this place more highly!

                        I hardly know where to begin....it is hard to recommend this venue more highly. The welcome is so friendly, the property absolutely perfect. There was nothing I could fault. Everything you could possibly need has been thought of. The whales we saw from the terrace took our breath away. If you are thinking of holidaying in this part of Hawaii , look no further than Sea Watch!

                        I highly recommend this vacation site. Everything about this home is more than anybody could ask for. Myself and two others stayed here for two weeks. The owner was professional, polite and when we needed anything she took care of us immediately. We enjoyed the beautiful view in the morning for sunrises and evenings. Truly a paradise one will never forget and hate to leave.

                        Home was clean as a whistle- no mold whatsoever, as in some seaside residences. The kitchen had every possible convenience possible imaginable including bread and rice makers! Nice laundry room serves as a second bathroom with shower. Very private. Great location on the coast line. Hardly knew other houses were nearby. All windows were spotless for viewing the ocean. Sam was delightful to work with and a binder of reviews and recommendations from Sea Watch over many years was helpful in deciding where to go and how to best spend our vacation.

                        We arrived at Sea Watch on the afternoon of our 27th Wedding Anniversary, and stayed for 7 nights. They had to be the fastest 7 days we'd ever experienced! Our first trip to the Big Island, Sea Watch, and Sam, were all perfect. The mornings, sitting there on the lanai, sipping coffee and watching the sun slowly rise over the ocean will live in us forever, as will the afternoons watching the sea turtles in the waves below. Absolutely the perfect sleeping environment too, with the gentle trade winds and soothing surf. We definitely would not hesitate to stay at Sea Watch again, or recommend it to friends.

                        This was our second stay in less than a year. As soon as we walk through the door we feel at home. The view is unsurpassed, the spinner dolphins welcomed us the first night. The first time we stayed for just 3 days, this time for 7! This was the first time we have ever stayed in one place on vacation for a week, we are usually on the move, it is that special! Samatha is a dear and manages the property with a loving hand! Any one who stays here will not be dissapointed!

                        Hawaii's Big Island is definitely a place worth flying half way around the planet for. Sea Watch is the icing on the cake. With so much to see and do on the island, coming back and listening to the crashing waves on the rocks below whilst sipping a glass of your favourite beverage is definitely luxury to the extreme. If you are at Sea Watch early enough in the year you will see whales without even having to leave the House. Although we were later in the year we had the joy of dolphins instead. The Volcanic National Park is a must have, if it is raining down at Hilo it is almost guaranteed sun at the top. The views are spectacular, and the lava fields immense. Worth taking the drive down to the coast and just stopping off at the various pull-ins just to take it all in. Walking to the fresh lava flows was the highlight of our holiday (as well as snorkeling and scuba diving), and a real education. Take good walking shoes or hiking boots as the hardened lava can be quite tough to walk on. Definitely worth hiring a car for the holiday, as there is so much to see. It took us about 6-7 hours to go all the way around the island, but you will want to stop off in so many places it is guaranteed to take longer. The exceptionally clean Sea Watch has everything you could possible need, including a delightful owner in Sam, who is happy to leave you alone for the week, or answer numerous questions from sight-seeing to weather to restaurants. (Excellent restaurants about 10-15 minutes’ drive, and not expensive.) Sea Watch is a place you can relax in for your whole vacation, or like us use as a place to return to at the end of the day and listen to the wave lapping below you. Will we return? – DEFINITLY

                        This was a second stay at Sea Watch and it was as great as our visit back in 2002! The view is breathtaking and you see the ocean out of almost every room in the house - including the master bath shower! This house is spotless, so bright and cheery. Sam the owner has stocked it with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. We loved Sea Watch so much we spent 3 days during our stay never leaving the house! Such a peaceful and relaxing place to stay!! A third visit will be in our future.

                        We really loved staying at Sea Watch! It is, by far, the best rental home either of us have ever encountered. Sam really has thought of everything to make it comfortable. Mahalo nui loa! I absolutely plan on coming back. I don't usually say that because I have so many places I want to see in the world that I don't feel I have time to revisit those I've already seen. But I really want to come to Sea Watch and just stay at the house and relax next time. Aloha a hui hou!
