"Not to start any debate but I strongly disagree with the latest comment that was made. If you read the information about the rental you would be very happy with the accommodations, price and location. For $90 this is a steal and truly a hidden gem on the Big Island. Hotels are 3x that price and have nothing close to the atmosphere, location, and experience. If you want to avoid a little cob-web, ditch the heat, and be in AC..... this is NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU! However, if you love the fresh air, trade winds and morning showers with sunny afternoons this is it! The unit is clean, nice in size and has everything you need to have a relaxing getaway. The owners are very friendly and helpful in any way they can. We felt like part of the family here as they shared the ALOHA Spirit during our stay! We would come again without a doubt!! Thanks for the great place!"

"Sea Watch is a beautifully designed, artfully decorated little jewel on the edge of the Pacific. It is clean and well maintained. It is open, with wonderful views of the ocean from every room, and the sound of the surf in the background. The lanai is a perfect place to watch the ocean. The house is situated in an inlet on the coast south of Hilo. Waves crash against the lava cliffs, and one can look down the coast to either side of the house at the tropical vegetation and the constantly changing weather.
The owner, Sam, lives next door and is friendly but unobtrusive. As others have noted, she is attentive to every need and detail. The neighborhood is quiet, with vacation homes (many quite beautiful). For quiet and privacy it is hard to beat, but one must drive a bit to get to the nearest towns.
The weather is constantly changing, from humid and rainy to evening breezes that are cool and soothing. Rain storms don't last longer than an hour or so, and generally come at night (another soothing sound!). And always the sound of tropical birdsong.
All in all a lovely place to spend time, perfect to just get away and be quiet, or a good temporary home from which to explore."

"Hale La'i was so perfect for our stay. It offered every comfort, including entertainment goodies, for a fun filled time in between doing all the Island fun stuff. Thank you HPVR for an excellent stay!"

"We recently stayed here for a week with our 3 children (1,2 & 13) and can not wait to come back. We made so many memories swimming everyday in the pool and playing games on the beautiful deck! The location is also amazing. Hilo was an easy 20 min drive but we actually spent more time exploring some amazing spots in the other direction (near Pahoa) like Ahalanui Beach Park, Champagne Pond, Kapaho Tide Pools. The house is much closer to all of these awesome must see Big Island spots than Hilo which made it so convenient for our little ones and their napping schedules. The house is perfect for families with children, the pool is fenced in and the yard is so lush and beautiful. The owners Jack and Tonya are so nice and welcoming gave great suggestions on nearby sites to see. Tonya even brought over fresh fruit from their mango tree. We will definitely be coming back to the Big Island and staying at this beautiful house again. It is definitely home away from home and we would recommend this house to anyone wanting to see the beautiful big island of Hawaii."
