"As the real estate pundits write: Location, Location, Location! as the key to a property, so I write of Sea Watch. The stunning spot on the bay with the surf hitting below the lava cliffs at the edge of the sea is memorable, and I can still hear it. We stayed south, and across the bay 5 years ago and that location pales compared to this spot. It is very quiet and the sunrise is spectacular. Your proximity to Hilo, Pahoa, and Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park make plenty of day-trips possible------easily----- even up the coast north of Hilo, as we did too."

"Having never been on the Big Island, it was not easy choosing the perfect home and location for my family of 5. After having spent 3 weeks in this house my family and I agree I could not have chosen a better location or a better house.
This is an absolutely beautiful house and had everything we needed.
We loved visiting the beautiful falls just minutes away.
We loved having a store in Papaaloa to buy milk bread and delicious freshly baked pizza. We visited Waipio valley, pololu valley and Havi to see the Kings statue and have the best Shave ice in the island.
We loved driving through Waimea to the Honokaa Coast to So many beautiful beaches to spend the day boogie boarding, snorkelling and making sand castles. Horse back riding and great restaurant in Waimea were great.
Tex Drive in has amazing Malasadas and it's just a short drive away. :)
The house was spacious , very clean and had everything we needed. When we come back in a few years, we all would love to stay here again!!!
Thanks so much for sharing your home with us !"

"We stayed for 9 nights. Even though the weather was not ideal, the pool and spa were great. While we were a little early for whales, we saw plenty of turtles. The sound of the surf and rain at night was very relaxing.The home has great kitchen amenities and the beds were very comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. Volcanoes National Park is a quick ride up the hill. Hilo is close as well. Traffic does back up in the afternoon commute, but there are lanes being added to the highway to remedy this."

"We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house that is right in the heart of Hilo. We were amazed at how quiet it was because we were just a few minutes from downtown on a fairly busy street. Amazed that we didn't need the air conditioning, open windows provided wonderful cross breeze. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this is the best stocked kitchen we have seen to date. Absolutely everything we needed was at our finger tips. Beds and furniture were very comfortable. We would like to see just a few more soaps and paper products supplied, otherwise it was perfect. Any questions or issues were addressed right away. would recommend this house to everyone and will most likely try to rent it again on our next trek to the Big Island."
