    We wanted a room right on the water so we could hear the waves at night. We were quite happy with the room and the supplied breakfast each morning was a nice benefit.

    Lennard A from Honolulu, HI recommends this vacation rental

    This was such a great spot. My positive experience began even before we got there as they were so responsive with my questions about the hot tub and their easy detailed check in instructions. The location itself was perfect as the surf break was a quick 4 min drive and I was able to get great video from the property pool deck. Also,a quick less than 10 min drive to downtown hilo

    Stephanie N from Honolulu, HI recommends this vacation rental

    Unfortunately, it rained most of our short weekend in Hilo, but we made the best of it. Hale Kai was super clean, cute and convenient. We didn't get to enjoy the pool, but it looked lovely. The grounds and view were beautiful. The Coqui are loud at night, but it's a "friendly " noise.

    Hale Kai is in a great location with beautiful landscaping and views. The room was very comfortable with everything we needed. The breakfast was delicious each day, especially all the fresh fruits. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and watching the surfers on the beach down below. Shawna with Salt Water Vacation Rentals checked in with us each day to make sure everything was going well. I would highly recommend staying here!

    James C from Lockport, New York recommends this vacation rental

    We had a wonderful stay in the Bamboo room. It is the most private of all the rooms in the building. The room was plenty large enough for 2 people and very clean as well. Considering the restrictions due to Covid, the breakfasts were just fine. There was fresh fruit and assorted breads every morning along with plenty of coffee. We also enjoyed watching the surfers every night at the nearby beach park, which is close enough to walk to. We will definitely check for availability here for our next stay in Hilo.

    a guest from Algonquin, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Room was nice although not most modern we've ever stayed in. Bed very comfortable.

    Breakfast service was great to have every day and owner was reachable by text.

    Hot tub was broken and appears to have been for a while.

    Overall we'd recommend this location for anyone looking for nice, simpler accommodations near Hilo.

    • Manager Responded on 4/4/2022

      Mahalo for your review, Zach. Hilo is a rather simple place and we're glad you enjoyed your visit. Sorry the hot tub was out of commission. Out here on this tiny rock thousands of miles from anywhere, it can sometimes take a couple weeks for parts to arrive, The hot tub is back up and running YAY!!! If your travels bring you back our way we hope you'll keep us in mind for your accommodations. Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew

      Hi David - Mahalo for your review. Sorry about the hot tub situation! The part finally came in and the hot tub was operational just a few days after you departed.

    Brandon C from Milford, OH recommends this vacation rental

    The Bamboo Room was a tranquil spot with expansive views of the ocean. We enjoyed the sound of the waves and birds with the warm tropical breeze. We even saw a pod of dolphins from the lanai during breakfast one morning! The parking is tight, but we were able to manage it in our rented Jeep. We will definitely plan to stay in the Bamboo Room when we visit Hilo again!

    • Manager Responded on 3/28/2022

    a guest from University Place , WA recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed in Hilo for 3 nights and spent one day going north, one day exploring Hilo and Mauna Kea, and one day exploring Puna. This location was great, and we enjoyed the sunrise every morning. This place has four units that all face the sea with sliding doors to a patio. The patios are divided by bamboo screens and the walkway in front of the patios is shared and that’s how you access the rooms. The Bamboo Room was comfortable for a couple. It’s the only unit that doesn’t have a slider (access through a common room). Nice bathroom/great shower! The parking spaces are cramped and odd-shaped so we had to back in, but we managed. It was a great spot for what we wanted.

    • Manager Responded on 2/17/2022

      Mahalo nui for your review, Tracy!! We are so happy that you enjoyed your time at Hale Kai Suites in the Bamboo Room. The parking lot is a bit wonky LOL Luckily there are only 4 rooms so it stays manageable. We hope you'll keep us in mind if you return to Hilo. We'd love to host you again!

    The view was beautiful and the Bamboo Room is the best. Staff was friendly and helpful. I was a bit confused about the breakfast. We seemed to get a little less fruit and boiled eggs and coffee cake each day. My husband needs protein in the morning and it was a little hard to plan. What we did get was excellent.
