Keaau House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

SEA WATCH, an award-winning two-bedroom, two-bathroom, oceanfront jewel is nestled just 90 feet from the ocean's edge yet is protected by the 20-foot lava cliff. Sea Watch is the ideal place to honeymoon, no matter how long you've been married. The small, cozy residential area is quiet and peaceful - the perfect "peace" of paradise. Sit inside this beautiful home or lounge outside on the roomy lanai while you are entertained by dolphins and sea turtles year round and humpback whales during the winter months. Watch these majestic creatures give birth and then train their young; listen to them breath, blow and vocalize many nights.

We try to provide everything you might need, from espresso machine to a Tiger rice cooker; from

free internet access to free long distance calling to anywhere in the USA and Canada.

Living a Dream...

  • 5 of 5
We felt at home the minute we opened the door and entered Sea Watch the first time. The view was breathtaking – as there was nothing between us and the ocean – The house was clean and very inviting with a lovely open layout and great ocean views from the living/dining areas, kitchen, master bedroom and shower! When we walked out of the sliding glass doors onto the lovely large lanai all we could hear was the sound of the surf crashing against the lava wall – it was both powerful and soothing. Imagine being lulled to sleep by the that sound...
The house was comfortable and super clean -- very easy to call home. The kitchen was well stocked with small appliances, cooking utensils, spices, assorted dishes and pantry items. The extra pillow top for the master bed added to our comfort.
During our stay in early June, we were able to watch the sunrise over the ocean each morning and have breakfast on the lanai in complete privacy. It only rained lightly for short periods of time – and never interfered with our plans. We enjoyed our visits to Volcano National Park (about an hour drive), Richardson Beach and the wonderful farmer's markets in both Hilo and nearby Pahoa on Sunday.
Samantha (the owner) carefully maintains the property and did her best to anticipate all of our needs. And although she happened to be away during our stay, she was very accessible, offering us lots of useful information to insure our visit was both comfortable and carefree. She made this the perfect "home" for our vacation – and we find ourselves longing to return. Warmest Aloha

THE OCEAN VIEW CANNOT BE DESCRIBED

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Sea Watch in June of 2014. This wonderful house is literally right on the ocean. We were about 40 feet from the water setting 30 feet about the pounding surf and could feel the salt spray at times.
The house was very spacious and had every amenity you would ever need. Sam was right next door to answer any questions and concerns I we had any. The great thing about renting a place like this instead of staying in a hotel room is the many extras you have in the form of maps and books about the island and all of its many treasures. I would recommend this as a perfect place to get away and relax and let the ocean lull you to sleep.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
I choose to stay at Sea Watch for our vacation but the pictures, as amazing as they are, do not do it justice. My 2 favorite times of the day were my morning coffee where I could wander around on the lava rock in the backyard and listen to the waves and when we got home from our outings. This house needs to be experienced in person - the sunrises are spectacular and inspiring, the waves powerful against the lava rock cliffs yet lulling you to sleep, the marine life (dolphins and whales) giving you a peek into their world. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had and would love to come back. It is not only that just about everything is provided for you in this home away from home but also the lovely touches of flowers and gladly accepted offers of home made ice cream. Sam is so very responsive to any questions or requests and so touchingly thoughtful. This home is wonderfully central on the east side of the Big Island to the Hamakua coast and points north, and south to Volcano. There is so much to do on this side and staying here allowed us to do more in-depth exploring of the wonderful towns, beaches and waterfalls on this side. We will be saving our pennies to come back and soon!

Well Appointed, Beautiful House with Kitchen Knifes that are Sharp!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rent nearly exclusively from VRBO listings when we travel. We've stayed in houses from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Palm Spring,s CA and Whistle,r B.C. and so on. Sea Watch was beautiful and just like the pictures on the site. The view was incredible - making coffee while looking out over volcanic rock to the crashing sea is a vacation memory of a life time. The owners do live next door but they are not intrusive. The welcome book is GREAT giving a lot of location information and helpful tips. As a homeowner in California, I can appreciate the rules and explanations for the property (such as why they ask you to close all windows when the tropical rains fall etc.), and the house was the most well appointed VRBO we have stayed in- complete with sharp kitchen knives! There are beach towels and plenty of cups, ziplock bags, coolers to borrow and even a rain slicker for the unpredictable but totally enchanting down pours! The community this house is in is quiet and friendly and at night you can see a million stars because of the lack of light pollution. I wasn't wild about having to wash and dry the bedsheets and towels. I can understand starting the wash and having the cleaning staff finish it. It's a small peeve of mine given I pay a cleaning fee, however, this tiny bit of work is a tiny complaint compared to the extraordinary value of staying at this house.

Bright Open Home with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5
Sea Watch was our final stop before returning to the mainland, and it was a spectacular way to spend the final days of our vacation. The home is very clean and comfortable, with amazing oceanfront views of the surf breaking on the lava cliffs. Sunny afternoons bring rainbows from the seaspray, as well as from distant rain over the ocean. The kitchen is well stocked and the master bathroom has a large shower with its own ocean view. The home is situated in a beautiful area, far enough from Hilo to be quiet, but close enough to drive there easily. It is also within a reasonable drive of Volcano National Park and a warmer home base for exploring that area than the village of Volcano. Sam is very friendly and helpful, but never intrusive. I highly recommend staying here for anyone who wants to explore the eastern side of the Big Island, or even just to relax and take in the views.

Beautiful and Relaxing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Sea Watch for a week and just loved our time there. The house is spacious and beautiful. My husband cooked breakfast and supper there each night and the kitchen was well equipped to create lovely meals with fresh food on the island. The lanai is relaxing and overlooks a beautiful view of the ocean. The house was very clean and comfortable. Sam, the owner, was helpful and kind. I couldn't recommend this place more highly!
