Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
We had high expectations, each of them exceeded. Owner could not have been more responsive and considerate. Home presents well on the website, it presents far better in person.

If you need to be around a lot of people and amenities then this is not the place for you. If you want to enjoy breathtaking sunrises AND sunsets, you have found your place. Well located, allowing you to explore the East side of the island, it does require an adventurous spirit.

If you can get in here before the owner moves in full time, we would highly encourage it!

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5
This place was awesome, it looks just like the pictures only better. What you cannot see from the pictures is when you walk up to the front door, which is glass, you can see all the way through the back of the house and to the ocean beyond. Very dramatic and beautiful! This house is new, in excellent condition, decorated very nicely, and has pretty much everything you need for a relaxing, enjoyable vacation. Very nice appliances, the only thing missing for us was a blender, not a deal breaker by any means. The floors are a unique rubber tile, feel very good under foot and so practical, what a great choice! The ceilings are very high and dramatic, there are ceiling fans in all the rooms. No air conditioning but we didn't need it at all. We fell asleep at night to the sound of the waves and the coqui frogs. We woke up in the morning to the sounds of the waves and tropical birds. What is not to love? There are many large windows that make the house light and bright. The lanai is amazing, would be a really great place to entertain. The master bedroom is large as is the master bath. The 2nd bedroom is much smaller with a fold out futon, it suited my teenage daughter just fine. The second bathroom is smaller than the first but still good sized and with the same nice finishes (granite counter tops, lava rock shower). The woodwork in the house......so beautiful. I wish I could have moved in. There is cable tv, wifi and phone service. Our cel phones worked here (we have Sprint). All the conveniences of home, only better, wish I could have moved in :) While there we went to the Makuu Farmers Market (good food, entertainment, arts and crafts, good selection of produce, all very reasonably priced), the volcano, the hot ponds and tidal pools, and one of our favorites, Uncle Robert's on Wednesday. So much fun! Such a great place to stay, highly recommended. Oh, yes, dealing with the owner was extremely easy, booked through VRBO, got a response right away, they utilize the Home Away payment function through VRBO which makes things really easy and convenient. Got the instructions on how to access the property well in advance of our trip, no problems at all. There was a lovely Hawaiian flower arrangement on the table when we arrived, thank you very much! And within 3 days of check out my security deposit had been refunded. I really appreciate the efficiency! Thanks Andy!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the Great review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Hale Umeke. Thank you for describing the ocean view from the entry. We will be adding a picture of the dramatic entrance soon to VRBO. Also, thank you for the mentioning of a blender. The house is very new. We have included many amenities. We will soon be adding a blender to those amenities. We are so pleased you enjoyed the rubber floors. They are so easy on the feet and eyes. We really appreciate your comments about the lanai. It is almost as big as the house. It truly doubles the living space and is perfect for enjoying the oceanfront views. Mahalo!

Wow! Beautiful! Tranquil! All of the above!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place to unwind and relax. Beautifully finished home on a perfect spot. Exactly as the pictures show except for the sound of the crashing waves! Everything you'd need had been thought of by the owner. Be mindful of the occasional foot traffic, ignoring the "No Trespassing" sign, walking past side of home to access lava shoreline at any hour. We wouldn't hesitate in returning again. Don't miss the tide pools just a few minutes walk down the road to the south.

Owner's Response: Alexander and Heather,

Thank you for the great review of Hale Umeke. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the amenities. We have stayed at a lot of beach rentals in the past and used those experiences when considering the design, furnishings and provided amenities for our vacation rental. Our goal is to ensure our guests have a wonderful stay at Hale Umeke. We are so happy that Hale Umeke met your every need and you had a wonderful visit to our slice of paradise.

The house is amazing! We apologize for the delay on our review, but our thoughts about the accommodation have not diminished. We were greeted by Ne Ne Geese and beautiful views with sea spray. The kitchen is beautiful and functional. The house book of local information is very complete and extremely helpful for restaurants,shopping, points of interest, prime tourist spots,etc. The bathrooms are luxurious and the rubber floors look cool and I could sneak up on my husband! All joking aside, we loved everything about Hale Umeke and plan to return on our next trip to the Big Island.

Owner's Response: Jenny,

Thank you for the great review of Hale Umeke. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and plan to visit again. The rubber floors are one of our favorite features of the house. We did a lot of research to find the perfect floors. We wanted something that was unique, low maintenance and easy on feet. It gives us a lot of pleasure to know that many of our guests have enjoyed the floors. We are also happy you liked the kitchen. Cooking is a passion for us. A gourmet kitchen was a must for Hale Umeke. We are also pleased you liked the bathrooms. They were designed to give our guests a true spa experience. The large duel shower and sunken tub are all about luxury. We look forward to you next stay. Mahalo.

Relaxation with the conveniences of home

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this quiet, well kept home on the oceanfront. The home is modern and well laid out with all of the amenities. Access was easy to the Hilo area, the Volcano, Mauna Kea, and other interesting areas. This was a great place to relax and rejuvenate. The weather was perfect for us with a mix of rain and sun. We absolutely would consider staying at this location again.

Hard to leave

  • 5 of 5
This place is right on the ocean! What an experience, especially for us from the mountains! The master bathroom is something right out of the finest spa. The house acts as a great home base for anything you want to do on this side of the island, and what a treat to come home to. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home.
