Guestbook comments from the owner
Wow! What and incredible journey we had in Hilo. We cannot thank you enough for the forethought extended to us during our stay. Your "whale binder" was the Holy Grail of Hilo for us. It provided us some extremely memorable destinations. We were so fortunate with the weather everywhere we went. It seemed we got sun when we wanted it and it became overcast when we didn't care. We learned a mind set that we have never really had before, and I have to say, it is one that really reduces anxiety and stress. The lava pool snorkeling was our favorite. The lavender corals were almost glowing and the variety if fish were gorgeous. We swam with a turtle when we were there. He didn't seem to care that we were flanking him as he swam. We saw a few turtles from the shoreline at the Whale House too. The Wednesday night dinner farmer's market at Uncle Roberts was so fun. We talked to some nice people and tried many different things. We did so much. And were so fortunate to relax at night in a wonderful home which provided for all our needs. We are sore, sunburnt, and mentally spent at the moment, but so happy we made this choice. Mahalo for the best vacation ever!

We are full-time Big Island residents. We live one block from the Whale House, so we are available to assist you at a moments notice.

Jim Brawner purchased this house in 2013

Once we stood on the lanai, felt the ocean spray, and saw whales breach in the orange sunset, we knew this house was a magical place.

Kayaks, bicycles, golf clubs, snorkels, coolers, and fruit trees. Whale House is the only rental where free kayaks are provided with instructions to the waterfalls. Kaloli Point is the very best area for bicycles both on a off trails. We also have fruiting coconut palms, papayas, bananas and pineapples on the lush half acre property. Oh, and great weather too!

This home was spotless and comfortable. The owners provide special touches that make one feel at home and a book of favorites that help you explore adventures and dining. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The owners meet you on arrival to explain everything and provide gear for outdoor exploration.

Sad to leave

  • 5 of 5
We were so sad the day we had to leave the Whale House. What a perfect rental for our vacation. It's super clean, very spacious, beautifully decorated, comfortable, and the views are to die for. I think we lucked out because this place is booked pretty solid. The location is so peaceful and relaxing. We could sit on that lanai and watch the ocean all day. Everything works perfectly, wi-fi, two large HDTV's, hot water, laundry, dishwasher, big fridge and lots of fun toys. What more could we ask for? And the owners were so helpful when we needed ideas for restaurants, where to kayak, farmer's markets, black sand beach, private volcanically heated hot ponds and hiking trails. It was actually pretty convenient that the owners live only a block away. When we needed more gas for the BBQ, it was installed and ready to grill in 10 minutes. We highly recommend the Whale House, and we'll definitely be back next year.
