  • 50th B-Day Trip

    "What a fantastic stay we had for my 50th B-Day. Sheree was so helpful getting the arrangements made before hand, and Lorena was such a terrific welcoming hostess. This place is beyond amazing. We ended up dumping most of our activity plans so we could bask in the luxury of the house and its gardens, pool, ocean views and cool breezes. Oh, and the incredible sunsets topped off each day. Totally relaxed me and made some great memories for the whole family."

  • LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION

    "Location, location, location is probably what summarize Hale Honu best! This was our first experience on this Island and from what we were able to see, Hale Honu was probably one of the best location available on the Big Island. It offered proximity to downtown (3 1/2 miles) where most of the shops are located and only a short distance away from major grocery store and shopping center. There was 5 of us in our party and we had rented the whole house. The fenced property allow for all the privacy and the noise from Alii Drive was never an issue. Since we had both floor of the house, we had more than enough space and the property offered all the amenities one can ask for. The sound of the surf crashing on the lava at the front of the property and the view was all the entertainment we needed and it was so relaxing that we never even use the television. The view from the upper lanai was just spectacular with whales, dolphins and turtles being center stage every day. We spent hours every morning and every evenings just looking out for them and we were never disappointed. We saw hundreds of whales and dolphins that provided us with front row seat to unbelievable shows; from just swimming along the coast, to breaching, tale slapping, jumping and spinning. Wow, it was like watching Discovery Channel live.... Unfortunately, the surf was very high during our stay which limited the amount of snorkeling we were able to do but this was the call of mother nature and it had nothing to do with Hale Honu. I don't know yet when we will be returning to the Big Island but Hale Honu will certainly be at the top of our list as a place to stay. Don A."

  • Comfortable, excellent bed, wonderfully decorated and cared for

    "We stayed for one week in this oceanfront condo. There were lots of top quality towels, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. Free wifi, Netflix and washer/dryer all worked well. Living room is nice with great views of the ocean. The kitchen is very modern and has all the amenities one could need and then some. We truly felt comfortable and at home in this nice condo. Note that we experienced a few days during "high surf" where it was very dangerous for us to be on the lanai due to heavy sprays and waves splashing onto the lanai. There are warnings posted outside as well as in the owners instructions in the condo that for Dec - March one must keep the windows and door closed during high surf warnings (that's why 4 stars instead of 5 as all else was great for us). The bedrooms are dark with no views at all however they are comfortable. No air conditioning anywhere in the condo. Both bathrooms are updated and very nice. We love Sea Village and this was our second visit to that complex."

  • Romantic Get Away

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My husband (of 21 years) and I have never stayed in a condo for a holiday before - we have always gone to a resort in the past. This was a fantastic experience! The view was amazing, the amenities and grounds were great, it was quiet and romantic and everything we could have wanted. The location was perfect for us - close enough to groceries/stores and restraunts, but far enough away to be peaceful and oh so enjoyable! We would love to stay again and have recommended it to all our friends!"
