"Great location, pleasant view, kind host
This unit is very convenient to the Hilo airport and the local attractions on the eastern side of the island. The host is very kind and considerate. Our plan was to be out all day, and to only use the unit for bed and breakfast, so this was a perfect choice for us. "

"Pepe suite review
We had a very relaxing enjoyable stay in this apartment. It has a beautiful view and it’s just far enough out of town to be quiet and peaceful but close enough to easily go back and forth into Hilo."

"We Would Stay Here Again!
We spent 5 nights in the Pele Suite and it was wonderful. The space was a perfect size for us - living area, small kitchen, very small bathroom and nice size bedroom. This suite also had an awesome balcony with table and chairs which allowed us to have our morning coffee and meals looking at the ocean and sky. The daily breakfast was an additional delight - way to much food most days but awesome. My only two call outs - there isn't an air-conditioner and it gets warm. They do have a couple of ceiling fans with a portable fan which helps but just be aware. Also, the people in the house above us could be a bit loud before 8 AM. We can understand noise during the day - but early in the morning is a bit bothersome. Even considering these two issues - we would stay there again. "

"Wonderful stay!!
Beautiful views, thoughtful breakfasts and comfortable beds. We highly recommend this property! I have traveled to Hilo twice a year for work. One of the best air bnb’s!!"

"Great palce
We enjoy our stay at your place. It was really fun to thak our breafast in front of the ocean !!"

"Hilo B & B
The unit was very nice. Great view and beautiful surroundings on the property. Not really walking distance to town but just a short 5 minute drive. The bed was quite comfortable. Our interaction with the property management team was very good...very responsive. Jen, the young lady we dealt with on a daily basis was spectacular. She was always asking if there was anything else she could do for us.

A couple of constructive suggestions. 1) please provide dish towels, we’re not sure how many people like trying even a few dishes with paper towels. 2) Give a heads up about the evening serenade from the coqui frogs. 3) Consider providing a couple of additional plastic glasses for use around the swimming pool.

Wonderful unit!"

"Relax by the shore
We were pleasantly surprised with this accommodation. Having booked it last minute I was concerned however my concerns were quickly dissipated by the professional interactions with Shawna. Our room was spacious, well equipped and the perfect hideaway for our sightseeing home base as we explored the volcanoes from land and air. I would definitely keep this property in mind when we return to the Big Island!"
Jul 17, 2022 - Deanna Y., Aptos, CA

This was a great place to stay and visit the many natural wonders on the Hilo side of the island. The view from the unit was spectacular. Breakfast was good. We did not use the pool or hot tub because they were not clean. We did not see anyone clean them while we were there (although we were gone during the day). There are not laundry service available, which did not match what we read in the listing. We did enjoy our stay overall."

"Slice of Paradise
We loved our stay in the Pele Suite, we happily could have stayed much longer, it is a clean, bright, quiet, well-supplied unit. There is no AC but there are plenty of windows that can let in the ocean breeze while maintaining privacy, so peaceful to fall asleep to the waves. Another plus, the king bed is quite comfy! Our fridge was stocked each day with fresh and delicious breakfast items, we enjoyed them on the deck while soaking in the sun and watching the surfers. There is a designated parking space for the unit and it's a 5-minute drive to Hilo, 10-15 minute drive to other local attractions, very convenient. I highly recommend the Pele Suite!"

"Hale Kai Suites - Pele Suite - wonderful stay in Hilo
We enjoyed the comfortable, spacious suite with balcony overlooking the ocean, and the pool, and the breakfasts."
May 18, 2022 - Jennifer L., Fall City, WA

We had a great visit-loved the breakfast tray. We had everything we needed. This is the second time I’ve reviewed this"

"Big Island
View was fantastic. Setting was fantastic. Location was fantastic. Breakfast provided was just right for us. The only disappointment was the hot tub not working and the pool was uninviting (not very clean) so we did not use. And we are pool and hot tub owners ourselves and the pool surface needs a facelift."

"Absolutely Wonderful
Pele suite was quite comfortable. Lanai with fantastic views, perfect for the continental breakfast. Close to Hilo. Quiet location woth the sound of gently breaking waves."
Apr 02, 2022 - Steve S., San Marcos, CA

"A great ocean view
The view from our room's lanai was spectacular. The room itself was pretty basic and we wished that there had been more attention given to the decor and furnishings so it was more pleasant to be in the room at night when the view is pretty much gone. A few suggestions - our room was listed as having a Smart TV. It did not. Being stuck with just basic cable service isn't worthy of a property that charges over $200 a night. Install a Smart TV so people can stream or add a DVD player. The furniture in the living room area of the room is not comfortable. It would also be nice if there was a second TV there in case one person wants to sleep and the other wants to stay up. There's no advantage to taking a 2 room suite unless both rooms are equally comfortable and inviting. We also would have appreciated an extra chair or two or ottomans on the lanai so we could put our feet up. I have sciatica and can't be in a sitting position too long or that will trigger a flare up. I moved one of the chairs from the room outside but had to be very careful that it didn't get wet as it rained while we were there. Lastly, the pool water's temperature should be kept much higher since the hot tub is not working. The hot tub was working when I booked the room so I was very disappointed that neither the pool nor the hot tub were usable for us. Had I known that, I would not have booked the room since it's a treat for us to have access to those amenities. This was a belated birthday stay for me so that made things worse. Two bright spots in our stay were your staff. Shawna was very helpful when we needed to change our reservation dates twice due to unforeseen circumstances. Jenn went out of her way to make sure I had everything I'd requested before my arrival. She also asked if we had any requests for breakfast the next day then tailored our fruit plate. Overall, we had a good time but aren't sure that we'd want to come back unless some of our suggestions are taken to heed."

"Lovely oceanfront with stellar views
Lovely oceanfront rental with stellar views! We loved to have our coffee on the lanai in the mornings and watch the sunrise. There was a group of surfers who would ride the surfs every morning close by and was fun to watch. We also saw a couple of whales in the far distance as they came up & blew their blowholes! The place itself was clean and comfortable. It does not have AC so some afternoons might get a little warm-that’s when you open up all the doors & windows to let the air circulate-it was not an issue with us. The king bed was comfortable. The kitchen is very small and comprised of a dorm size refrigerator & freezer, small sink and some dishes, cups, glasses etc., along with a small 4 or 5 cup coffee maker and coffee. The breakfasts consisted of mostly fruit with either 2-4 hard boiled eggs or store bought slices of Bundt cake and milk. The breakfasts could be improved but it was fine for us. The hot tub was broken and unusable but I think you could swim in the pool if you wanted but we did not. This gem is located in a real neighborhood and felt very safe. Also, since we were celebrating a birthday, they were kind enough to arrange to have flowers on the table & bubbly chilled upon our arrival. We will definitely stay here again if we ever come back to Hilo (which we also loved)!"

"Great Experience!
The views were great and in a quiet neighborhood. Also in a very convenient location close to all that Hilo has to offer. We were able to catch the sunrise from our patio/pool area while listening to the waves crashing without any disturbance. Unfortunately the hot tub was down, but the pool was open. We were provided a small breakfast of fresh tropical fruits, a couple hard boiled eggs, milk, yogurt, and some granola and oatmeal. Wish we would have stayed longer!"

Best view! Loved the breakfast every morning!"

"Great little B&B
Great little B&B type property!!! Great view, recommend the Pele suite. Was great stay in Hilo close to town. As long as you ok with being a low key B&B. "

"Lovely stay in North Hilo
Fabulous views from the Pele Suite. Large suite, comfortable bed, attentive staff. Great stay"

"November 2021 visit - 3 nights
Very nice location, nice accommodations, great views, very nice hot tub, surprisingly pool was too cold to use. Reported fluorescent light bulb of closet missing first night so impossible to use as extremely dark and it was never replaced the three nights we were there, bed very nice and , Upstairs full time residents had very loud sex at 6am, not a good alarm to get up see a beautiful sunrise! "

What an amazing room and view! We were very pleased. The hot tub was a nice perk after traveling. "

"Coffee and ocean views
We stayed in the Pele Suite for 4 nights while on the east side of the island. The kitchen was stocked daily with coffee, fruits, local bread and jams, and oatmeal each day for breakfast, which we enjoyed on the lanai overlooking the bay and the surfers. We loved relaxing in the hot tub and pool, but would have appreciated somewhere comfortable to lounge and read when it was raining. The living room furniture in the Pele Suite left something to be desired, especially considering the space available in the room. Overall we were very pleased with the cleanliness, location, and accommodation. The view certainly made this property worth the stay!"

"Love, love, love!
This place was beautiful! We stayed in smallest suite, it was the only one available when I booked, but it was perfect in size and comfort. Unfortunately we power vacation and were never there to actually relax. The view is the BEST. just amazing. We always got back after dark, but the mornings were awesome! The surfers were out every morning, I just loved it. The breakfast availability was delightful. I don't think I have ever tried papaya, I love it now! Unfortunately, every fruit DOES taste better in Hawaii. So make sure to eat your fill! First night we got there, it was already dark of course, but the sounds of the frogs and the crashing ocean waves was the stuff of dreams! I wish I could share the video I took just to remember how they sounded. We never did find the shared space in the house. I felt uncomfortable walking past other rooms in the search. But there is one. The only downside was the parking. Could be tricky for most people. Thankfully my husband is an expert car handler! Lol. Just make sure you have a small car!
I would DEFINITELY come back to this place. I will be in Hilo again soon, but only for one night, so won't be able to stay here because there is a two night minimum I think. But I absolutely will stay here again the next time!!! Mahalo!!"

"Hilo ocean view
Great stay. Very quite and peaceful. Great ocean view and enjoyed the pool and nearby Hilo ocean parks. Would definitely stay again."
Sep 12, 2021 - Kathleen K., Pahoa, HI

"Beautiful Views
Salt Water vacation is a great place to stay. We enjoyed the beautiful views, the pool and the hot tub. In the morning we ate breakfast that was provided by our host outside on our porch overlooking the ocean. Our room was very comfortable and immaculately clean. I would absolutely recommend this spot for a vacation getaway."

"Perfect location, but not a bed and breakfast
The location was perfect. Waking up to the sounds of waves and surfers was quite the experience. However, the room was not very clean. The blinds were very dirty and had other people's hair stuck to them which is disgusting. The management said they would send housekeeping to take care of it but they were never cleaned.
As far as being a bed and breakfast I think it is a stretch to call it that. At least while we were there. Serving Yoplait yogurt. with granola and some fresh pineapple and papaya every day does not constitute breakfast for me. The bed and breakfast we stayed in on the Kona side of the island made fresh from scratch breakfast and had brewed Kona coffee ready for the guests every morning. To make matters worse, I reached out to see if I could get some other items for breakfast, especially different fruits since we were tired of pineapple and papaya. I was offered hard boiled eggs or peanut butter packets. How does this make it breakfast? It would be nice to at least have more fresh local fruit, maybe some local yogurt, cereals (besides granola which is just a topping for our yogurt). We ended up going out to eat most mornings. Maybe consider some vouchers for a local breakfast place while you are not offering true breakfast?
Overall the suite was a great place to stay and we would happily stay again, just with an understanding that this is more of a place to sleep, not have breakfast, unless you really like Yoplait."

Wonderful 2 night stay.Beautiful views. Friendly staff. While an older building, it has been kept up beautifully and was very clean."

"Beautiful home with gorgeous views
Beautiful and clean with gorgeous views. Quiet location close to Hilo town. Service was excellent. The only drawback for me was no air conditioning. The evenings and early mornings were comfortable but afternoons would get a little warm. Other than that it was perfect and thoroughly enjoyed. "
