stunning!

  • 5 of 5
spent our 30th anniversary there and LOVED the ocean view, sound and smell. slept outside on the chaise lounge chairs more than in the house to enjoy the breeze, rain and closeness to nature. the lanai was AWESOME! spent many hours sitting on the cliffs watching the turtles and the locals collecting seafood.

saw the entire island (main roads with some jeep ones for fun) easily in the week we were there. snorkeled until we were wrinkled! glad to be there before the Pahoa lava issue. was a great vacation for 2 sun baked idaho folks. wonderful house...wackiest kitchen though. kept forgetting the split sink and made a mess more than once swinging the faucet! 1st world problems eh?!

hoping to return...a couple old beater bikes would be a wonderful addition.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, two boys and I spent nearly a week at Hale Umeke. We were very excited about the home, given the rave reviews...and it did not disappoint! The home is beautifully designed and crafted, very clean, and extremely comfortable. We enjoyed listening to the crashing waves, walking on the lava, spotting whales, and watching green sea turtles ride the waves. We also enjoyed cooking meals in the gorgeous and well-stocked kitchen, and playing charades in the living room. Drinking coffee on the lanai in the mornings was also a highlight. The home is also conveniently located to Volcanoes National Park, Tropical Botanical Gardens, the Mauna Kea Observatory, zip-lining, the cute town of Pahoa (which is where the lava flow is currently happening), tidal pools, Hilo, and much more. Andy is great to work with...he always responded promptly to my emails and phone calls. Thank you, Andy!

Owner's Response: Kathryn,

Thank you for the great review. We are so happy you and your family enjoyed Hale Umeke. We designed the lanai with your highlights in mind - morning coffee with spectacular ocean views and ideal whale watching.

Love This House!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, college-age son and I just returned from a stay at Hale Umeke. I cannot say enough positive things about this rental property. As a frequent VRBO renter, I have to say this is likely the best home to date. I echo other reviewers when they say the house and the lanai are better than the photos; so well situated on the lot that you can forget there are neighbors. We were thrilled to experience whales breaching mornings and evenings right in front of the property -- so close you could hear the slap on the water! House is thoughtfully appointed and *clean*, in a quiet area, but close enough to anything you might want to do on the Hilo side of the island, including Volcano National Park. Ideal property for three people; highly recommended for older couples looking for no steps, easy access showers, etc. The owner, Andy, is great to deal with -- highly responsive, pleasant. Would recommend this home to anyone looking for quiet comfort. Would love to return some day...

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review. We are so happy that you enjoyed Hale Umeke. We are glad you enjoyed the privacy. We placed the home to maximize the views and minimize the proximity to the neighboring homes. We also take great pride in Hale Umeke's cleanliness and accommodations. We have a great team that helps us keep Hale Umeke in top shape. We will pass your compliments onto them. We are also pleased that you enjoyed the whale watching. Hale Umeke is well located on the oceanfront to take full advantage of the whale watching season. Thank you for staying at Hale Umeke. Aloha.

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!

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.
