    Martial Andrea M from Bern, BE does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Swimming pool didn‘t look clean.
    All the furniture looked nice, but was smelly in the inside.
    The word „breakfast“ didn’t really deserve the name „breakfast“ (one time only one boiled egg a person)
    Other than that the stay was comfortable.

    • Manager Responded on 7/13/2022

      Aloha and thank you for the review. The pool is clean but is in need of refinishing which is happening late July, 2022. Our cleaning staff is excellent and we have not detected any bad smell. Our breakfast is a continental meal in your room and includes daily fresh fruit, protein (yogurt or hard boiled egg), and granola, muffin or breakfast cake. We aim to provide a fresh variety to give you a great start to the day. Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Crew

    a guest from Boise, Idaho recommends this vacation rental

    we stayed at Moana room for three nights. we enjoyed the room, location and ambiance of the property with the beautiful landscaping. There is a room to improve Breakfast items variety and quality. We liked the compost bin concept to reduce organic food waste. wish all places would offer the composting option. Overall we enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.

    • Manager Responded on 2/17/2022

      Mahalo for your review, Maryam. We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay and the lovely location! We have done our best to hang on to some breakfast hospitality, but COVID has made that aspect quite difficult to navigate :-( Thank you for mentioning the compost bin. On this tiny rock in the middle of the ocean, sustainability and waste are major issues. We always try our hardest to do what's best for the 'aina. Thanks for recommending, and come back anytime!!

    Perfect spot for a getaway. Convenient to Hilo sites, gardens, waterfalls and Volcanoes. Fantastic spot to just stay put and enjoy the beautiful view of the garden, ocean and surfers. Sleep to the sound of crashing waves. Wake to surfers already on the water. Short walk to black sand beach. Clean and spacious room. Nice breakfast. Great pool for lounging.

    Ferris P from Sacramento, CA recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The building and rooms appear to be updated and well maintained (for the most part). The room we stayed in (Moana) was very clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. It was a bit warm at times without A/C (warmer than we expected), but we enjoyed cooling off in the pool, and the property manager kindly provided us with an extra fan which helped. The views from our room were spectacular! We watched the sunrise every morning with our coffee and enjoyed watching the surfers at the adjacent beach. Also, some delicious breakfast items were provided every morning (bread, butter, jam, fresh fruit, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, etc.) which was a pleasant surprise. Would definitely recommend for those who don’t get easily overheated. My hubby and I learned our lesson though and will require accommodations with A\C in the future.
    Note: a few minor maintenance issues... Our screen door constantly came off the track and also had a rip in it where bugs could get in. I’d recommend replacing. Also, the hot tub needed a touch more chlorine... it was starting to look a bit green towards the end of our stay. The pool was immaculate though.

    • Manager Responded on 10/11/2021

      Mahalo for your review and thoughtful feedback, Ferris! Like many accommodations in this area, Hale Kai does not have A/C. Most feel its not necessary in our very mild climate that rarely sees daytime temps above 85 degrees. That said, it could get warm if guests wish to relax in the room during the peak sunshine hours. For guests who plan to go out and explore during the day, the lack of A/C is rarely a problem. The entire area cools off significantly once the suns slips behind the mountains in the late afternoon. As they say 'night time is the winter of the tropics" Mahalo nui for letting us know about the screen! I have forwarded your comment to our maintenance supervisor so we can get that fixed immediately. I also let them know that you felt the hot tub could use a bit more treatment. We appreciate your feedback - it's so important to help us improve the guest experience!! Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew

    Mackenzi N from Hagerstown, MD recommends this vacation rental

    We had an amazing time here at this B&B. The Moana room was comfortable and spacious, the view was absolutely gorgeous, it felt private even when other renters were present in the other units. We didn’t think we would use the pool much but it was very nice in the evenings. If it was sunnier while we were there I would have loved to use it in the mornings as well. I love the sound of the waves and coqui frogs. The host was very responsive to our needs. The location of the B&B was perfect for what we were doing, close to town but also a good location for exploring the upper coast. There is no air conditioning but at night there was plenty of breeze through the windows. If we return to Hilo we would definitely stay here again.
