"Nice location
Very good experience!"

"3great days in hilo
The suite was great lovely with a great view. Breakfast was nice , pretty fruit arrangements. Clean and easy to find."
Mar 24, 2024 - , troutman, NC

"7 wonderful nights in the Bamboo Room
The Bamboo room was fantastically comfortable for us and very pretty. The king bed was super comfortable. The shower is very roomy with great water pressure. The absence of a/c was not an issue with the ocean breeze and ceiling fan. The continental breakfast was just right for us and the fresh fruit was great. We watched the whales from the terrace while we breakfasted every morning. The gardens are lovely. The location was very convenient for Hilo. Our only cons were that the pool is not heated and was a little cool and the door to the Common Room sticks a little."

"Great view on the ocean
We had a great time here watching the whales jumping in the water in front of our room"
Feb 13, 2024 - , Pfaeffikon, ZH

"Beautiful views!
Everything was clean and modern. We really enjoyed our stay and will book again. The views and the landscaping are amazing. "
Feb 11, 2024 - Marcus L., San Jose, CA

"Beautiful Bed and Breakfast
We had a great experience with this rental, the property is awesome, great views and flowers. We had a brief issue with the bathroom sink, but it was fixed immediately. The bed was comfortable the shower was refreshing. The fresh fruit and continental breakfast every morning was perfect. We love hardboiled eggs; however, these were impossible to peel. I recommend waiting for the water to boil before adding the eggs to make them easier to peel. "

"Wonderful whale watching spot.
Had our coffee every morning on the patio while watching humpback whales. It was great!"
Feb 01, 2024 - , Wimberley, TX

"Stunning Ocean View Suite
The suite was clean, well stocked with a big walk-in shower. The suite and the outdoor seating space had an amazing view of the ocean with tons of humpbacks to watch. The best part of the bamboo suite was that it's at the end of the row of 4 units so it was the only one that people didn't have to walk by to access their unit. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, yogurt and muffins and there was plenty of coffee and tea supplied.

The only downsides: parking was tight and awkward in our dodge charger rental car and the pool and hot tub did not seem to be running."
Jan 27, 2024 - Alex G., Duncan, BC

"Okay stay
Place was somewhat run down. Breakfast yogurt was over 10 days expired - expired on 12/10, and we checked in on 12/20. Nice view from room."

"Hale Kai

Résultat de la traduction
The property is clean and the team very responsive, professional and available, but the rooms really lack charm and modernity, and could clearly do with a freshening-up"
Nov 18, 2023 - Marie H., 75019, A75

"Wonderful stay in Bamboo Room
We enjoyed our stay at Hale Kai. Good location outside of town but not too far. Quiet neighborhood. Beautiful view of the ocean. Filling breakfast with in room coffee and tea as well. Took advantage of the many activities listed on the welcome pages that are on the table. Comfortable bed but the Coqui frogs chirping at night might keep you up! Jacuzzi was too hot at 105 though."

"Wonderful Stay
Our room was great, the view was incredible and we loved all the geckos! Mahalo for a wonderful place to stay while we explored the island!"
Oct 02, 2023 - Morgan W., Bloomington , IL

We were on Big Island for 5 days. The accommodation was fantastic. Direct view of the sea and the surfers. Super beautiful sunsets we could enjoy from our terrace. Check-in and check-out was very easy. Every morning the fridge was stocked with fresh fruit and very fine cookies. :-) we would return to this place...."

"Dirty. Appalling breakfast. Nice view!
First, the room was dirty. The coffee maker had not been cleaned. There was a bunch of coffee in the paper filter, with several dime-sized blobs of mold. The pot still had some liquid coffee in it. There was some green something or other on the nightstand. After a few hours, my wife noticed that her socks had turned black, so we walked around in sandals the rest of the time. The shower is moldy.

Second, calling the breakfast uninspired is high praise. When we arrived, inside the small refrigerator in the room we found a plate of cut fruit, two muffins, some milk, two Yoplait yogurts, and a bowl with two eggs (in shell). That was to be our breakfast for the next day. I’m not sure how we were expected to prepare the eggs - perhaps by using the microwave in the room.

We ate the fruit, one muffin and the yogurt. The next day, the pattern repeated: a new plate of fruit appeared in the fridge, but no extra muffins (gotta finish them if you want more!), and the yogurt was replenished. That pattern repeated the third day, so that’s the extent of the breakfast. (They also have some standard oatmeal packets and granola bars on the desk that looked picked over).

Is the fruit plate a collection of local Hawaiian fruits like papaya or pineapple? Nope - bog-standard bananas, apples, cantaloupe, and strawberries. And since it’s cut the previous day, the banana and apple start to turn brown by the morning, even though it’s in the fridge with plastic wrap on it.

Oh, did I mention that our room was missing the smoke detector? It had been pulled out, so there is just a hole in the ceiling with wires hanging out. The view is great, I will say that. Nothing else even rose to the level of "good.""

"Great place overlooking Hilo Bay
For those who knew this Hale Kai before I can still say, that it's beautiful and well looked after, but the personal contact with other guests at the common breakfast is no longer done. "
Apr 26, 2023 - , 8479 Altikon, ZH

While our room itself was nice and clean, the other aspects of the property were not. The parking arrangements are awful. Getting in and out of the driveway and assigned parking spots are very difficult to maneuver. In addition, getting to your room requires descending and then ascending somewhat uneven steps. The breakfast of fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, store bought muffins and yogurt are placed in your room the day before. Finally, communication about the property is very impersonal."
Apr 22, 2023 - , Fort Collins, CO

"bamboo room is best
Excellent, small venue, quiet. Bamboo room is the most private, view of big surf and surfers at world famous Homolii beach literally out your front window. Very quiet neighborhood but only a mile or so out of Hilo."
Mar 03, 2023 - gwen l., cinebar, WA

"Clean/Great Location
This B&B is very clean. Staff is very friendly. All utensils are in your room for you to use with your breakfast. Location is 5 minutes away from Hilo and the airport is only 15 minutes away. We didn't have good weather it rained the 3 days here. Volcano National Park is only 1 hour away. Oh, the coquis frogs are loud so make sure you are a heavy sleeper!"
Feb 26, 2023 - Jeffery S., Lowell, IN

"Fabulous Stay!
We we so happy with the Bamboo suite. It was nice to be on the end and have limited traffic in front of our room. It was very clean and spacious."
Feb 20, 2023 - Andrea P., Lockport, MB

"Great views and nice property!
We enjoyed our stay in the Bamboo room. I loved making coffee and watching the whales each morning! Breakfast was a nice touch and the quality of fruit was very good! As others have said, the parking was a little tight but we were able to manage just fine. We will stay here again if we come back to the Big Island. "
Feb 05, 2023 - , Poway, CA

"You Can't Beat Ocean View
After staying two weeks in inland VRBO rentals we treated ourselves to this ocean view property. Watching whales and dolphins from the lanai and hearing the surf all night is priceless."
Feb 03, 2023 - David S., Durango, CO

"Beautiful views at a great value
Amazing ocean views, though the lanai furniture needs an upgrade. Very comfortable bedding and you fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves and coquis. The breakfast items are pretty simple: fruit, hard boiled eggs, yogurt. The staff are very responsive and professional!"
Dec 10, 2022 - , Cambridge, MA

Very pretty building and good location. No staff to greet you or ask questions, "Breakfast" is some cold food left in a fridge the night before, occasionally, did not leave everything. One of the items was oatmeal packets, except there were no bowls to microwave in, or spoons, etc. Garbage not taken out from the room in 3 days we were there, spotty internet, TV did not work, hot tub did not work, pool had a cleaning robot in it all the time so we did not bother. Could be great. It's just ok."
Nov 08, 2022 - George M., Rosemount, MN

"Awesome stay!
Lovely place, great location, awesome view! We enjoyed breakfast on the patio every day and even saw a large pod of dolphins right in front of the property 2 days in a row!"
Oct 21, 2022 - Barbara M., Bainbridge Island, WA

"Great Stay
We really loved this place. It felt homey and the view can't be beat. Walk to the beach was scenic. "
Oct 11, 2022 - Elizabeth P., Rockford, IL

"Wonderful location right on the water.
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."
Jul 31, 2022 - , Frisco, TX

"Great spot to chill
Not a lot of options on this side of the island and this spot was well kept easy to chill and nice breakfast"
Jun 30, 2022 - Crysta K., Los Altos, CA

"This place was SOOOO worth it!
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"

"Hilo Weekend
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."
Jun 07, 2022 - Stephanie N., Honolulu, HI

"Great B&B
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!"
May 31, 2022 - , Huntsville, AL

"Wonderful Stay
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. "
May 15, 2022 - James C., Lockport, New York

"Great place
Fast friendly and affordable "
Apr 21, 2022 - Reid K., Mount Pleasant, IA

"Good service, pleasant stay
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."
Apr 04, 2022 - , Algonquin, IL

"one night
really nice. we want to returm. Will the hot tub be working. We missed that."
Mar 28, 2022 - , Captain Cook, HI

"Beautiful garden-like setting by the water
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!"
Mar 19, 2022 - Brandon C., Milford, OH

"nice rental
beautiful location, lovely setting
very responsive property management, staff
unit clean, bed comfortable
good suggestions for restaurants, activities
city of Hilo very fun, laid back
units close, difficult neighbor initially who happily left after 1 night
Mar 08, 2022 - Margaret M., Winchester, MA

"Cozy Lodging
Hale Kai B & B has an ocean front view. With only four rooms, it has a cozy, older Hawaii feel and is in a quiet residential neighborhood. They provide a light breakfast and snacks in the room each morning. The caretaker is gracious and helpful. We enjoyed our stay. "
Feb 17, 2022 - , La Grande, OR

"Sunrise View
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."
Feb 12, 2022 - , University Place , WA

"Bamboo room
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. "
Nov 23, 2021 - , Santa Cruz, CA

"Great experience
Enjoyed the B&B and eating on the patio in full view of the ocean and beautiful landscaping. Host stocked the room well. Be prepared to go up/down steps to get to your room/car. Wonderful experience overall!"
Nov 16, 2021 - Stephen B., Muenster, TX

"Perfect location and beautiful view
A perfect location to visit the east side of the island. And, the view is beautiful. Loved all the flowers all around the property. Enjoyed our time here. "
Oct 28, 2021 - Robert N., La Mesa, CA

"Great Stay in Hilo
Lovely B&B that is close to Hilo. It was convenient for all of our travels. Check in process was easy. Daily breakfast that was provided in the room was wonderful with fresh fruit. Gorgeous view of the sea. "
Oct 12, 2021 - Hong H., Lithia Springs, GA

"thank you for a lovely stay
Hale Kai was perfectly located for exploring around Hilo. We loved watching the surfers from the pool balcony and eating our breakfasts on our porch as the sun came up! The grounds are beautiful - packed with fragrant blooms - and the hosts were very responsive when we had a question."
Sep 11, 2021 - , Newburyport, MA

"Perfect view
We had a very enjoyable experience. The check in process was easy and it was a clean property."
Aug 19, 2021 - Tracy W., Bowie, MD

"Beautiful location
WE had a great stay at Hale Kai. It is so neat to wake every morning as the sun comes up over Hilo Bay. Been coming for years and was a little apprehensive about this stay since there has been a change in ownership, but it was all good."
Jul 20, 2021 - Kathy M., Springfield, MO

"Surreal and Amazing!
The bamboo room was amazing. Wonderful view, super quiet. Everything about the property, view of the ocean, and vibes was Wonderful. I want to go back already! Highly recommend."
