  • SEAWATCH SHINES

    "The description and information listed about Sea Watch is spot on-so I am giving you OUR thoughts rather than repeating information. WE LOVED OUR STAY. This was our second visit to Sea Watch. We were there in December of 2013 which was a little too early to whale watch. But this year we saw 30-50 whales. The highlight being a whale so close to the house we could hear it breath! Sea Watch is a home whose back door is 90 feet from the ocean and you can hear the melody of waves breaking on rocks day and night. The home itself is very nicely maintained and extremely clean. The house is very bright and cheery. The ocean views out the back of the house are great-on a windy day you can have sea spray reach the back door! We rent property to be on the ocean-not 1 street away from the ocean and Sea Watch definitely meets our needs. Fishing poles are available (in the closet) if you want to step out the backdoor and try your luck. The owner "Sam" is very nice and very responsible to your needs. If you have a problem she will solve it. We had the TV stop working one evening. Sam came over and tried to get the set to work. After failed efforts she was going to buy a new TV set right then so we could watch TV that night! What other Property Manager does that? We enjoyed the house and its location so much that we would sight see a day and then stay at Sea Watch the alternate day. An important feature of Sea Watch is that it is a premier property with a very reasonable rental rate! John Ramos Sequim, Washington"

  • Hilo Hideaway

    "Donna was very understanding when I got the dates mixed up and arrived a day early. We spent 5 days at the condo and found it very satisfactory. The condo allows cross ventilation by opening windows and we appreciated the breeze. We only needed the one bedroom and really enjoyed that view and being able to hear the waves at night. Also, Donna told us about using the nearby secluded local road (Nene) for our morning walks to Richardson Beach Park. We used Hilo as a base for Volcano and Puna. We'd stay again."

  • Great accommodations, well-located for main sights

    "The pictures are accurate of the inside of the house. It is a lovely bungalo with lots of light, clean and very well taken care of. It does sit in the middle of a clearing, so it does not get shade and can get hot in the afternoon. There is good cross ventilation, though, and effective ceiling fans. The kitchen is well supplied with utensils, there is a tv and DVDs but no internet. The host, Linda, is friendly and helpful. While living room and kitchen windows do not have curtains (no real reason to since there is no other building visible and only one car went by on the private road to the house in our three days there), there are blinds in the bedrooms. The setting is beautiful, feeling very tropical. The house is about 2 to 3 miles off highway 11, roughly a third of the way from Hilo to Volcanoes National Park. So it is relatively close to Hilo, the volcano, and to Pahoa and Puna. We would certainly go back another time."

    "We enjoyed this nicely appointed condo. Very comfortable. The setting in Carl Smith beach park is really nice. It doesn't have a view of the ocean, but there is a nice view of the forest canopy. And this is a small point, but for some it will be important: you can change the input on the TV so we were able to watch Netflix movies using our Chromecast fob and the apartment wifi, which we really enjoyed."
