"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!

"We found the cottage exactly as pictured. The house is situated on a dead end street and we only saw 3 cars pass in 7 night stay. If you want to cook on a stove choose elsewhere. But for us we were out exploring the island and eating at all the wonderful restaurants so we had no use for a stove. The house is clean. The Hilo side of the island does get rain everyday. It comes and goes quickly and during our stay it mainly rained in the night. Due to the constant moisture (over 100 inches of rain a year) there are mold issues in the shower. Speaking of the showers they are roomy and very luxurious. I wouldn't recommend this house for 2 couples, but a family of 4 it would work great. There is no privacy except for the bathroom. One must have a car due to it's location. The local (within walking distance) shops are closed more than open. The bakery is not very good! The coffee shop doesn't open until 8am. Try Moonstruck in Hilo for French pastries and Sombats in Hilo for Thai. Both worth trying more than once. It seems the good restrauants have limited open hours so check yelp for the times they are open. Both are worth multiple visits!!!"

"We spent here 10 nights/days at the condo around New Years Eve. The condo was the perfect accomodation related to our planned activities around the volcano. Everything at the condo was as described, the cleaning and all the ammenities fulfilled our expectations. The pool was closed due to renovations works at the backside of the building but this was not really an issue to us. Hopefully we will return soon.
Thanks and best regards from Austria!"
