Quaint

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the stay and the owners were quite nice. Very quaint and cleaner than that of the resort I stayed at for 4 days before.

Only small down fall was simply all the rules. I understand however that these good people are only protecting their assets

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. THERE ARE NO RULES. THESE ARE GUIDELINES, FOR EXAMPLE, THE GATE SHOULD ALWAYS BE CLOSED TO KEEP THE FERAL PIGS AWAY.WE HAD EVEN REQUESTED THAT YOU CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION SINCE YOU HAD MENTIONED IT AS RULES. WE WERE PLEASED AS YOU WERE HAPPY WHILE YOU WERE HERE AND I JOKED ABOUT YOUR COMMENTS ON RULES IN THE COMMUNICATION. WHY NOT ENJOY THE GOOD THINGS AND NOT TALK ABOUT THINGS THAT REALLY DID NOT AFFECT YOUR STAY.

Great place to stay on Hilo side of the Big Island!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jay & Vijay - we really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Seekers' Hive!

The room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The shared kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast and pack a lunch for the day - fridge, stove, pots/pans, blender, toaster, coffee pot, and much more! They even had coolers and snorkeling gear to borrow for the day. They have a nice outdoor pergola area for eating and grilling, with views of their beautiful property.

Jay and Vijay were very friendly and welcoming! We loved the tour they gave us of their Hawaiian gardens with many varieties of flowers and fruit trees. They have worked hard to make this a wonderful place to stay. They are very helpful and have great suggestions of nearby places to see.

We like to find places to stay that are away from the busy cities, and this was perfect. It is a great location from which to visit Volcanoes National Park, Hilo, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach, Akaka Falls, and many other beautiful places on the east side of the Big Island. It worked out great to explore that side of the island for a few days, before we went to Kona for the rest of our stay. If we are lucky, we'll be back someday!

Great hideawy

  • 5 of 5

The set up at Seeker's Hive was great, new rooms, well equipped kitchen, etc. We arrived in a downpour and the owner met us with umbrellas and made sure we had everything we needed. If you are looking for a place a bit off the beaten path but easily accessible to lots of great things to do; the National Park, Hilo, etc, this is it!

Были 2 ночи, проездом Хило и парк вулканов. Отличное место. Чистая комната, удобная кровать, Место для еды хорошо организовано, красивый сад, тихо, только пение птиц. Рекомендуем.

On the way to Hilo and Volcanoes Park we stayed for 2 nights. It's a pleasant and safety resting place. The room is clean, comfortable bed, the place to eat well organized, beautiful garden, it's calm. Recommended.
