Very Good

“Fantastic home with views”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2017

We loved the Whale House. The views were spectacular. The house was huge and very clean. It was convenient to all our activities and very affordable. I would highly recommend the Whale House for anyone visiting the Big Island!

“Dream house for Hilo vacation”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2014

We spent 6 days at big island. Two days at west side to see sun set and 4 days at east side to see sun rise. The very nice and clean whale house was very idea house that full fill our Hawaii vacation dreams. The landlord feed everything we need: local sightseeing, shopping, special area for diving and hot pong for spa, as well as farmer's market,ect. In the morning, we eat breakfast at balcony, watching colorful cloud change, breath ocean fresh air; in the evening, the sound of ocean wave mix with toad sound, it felt like living at heaven. Thanks to Jim for everything, we'll definitely come back for next vacation at Waffle House.

“Wonderful Experience - Great Hosts!”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2014

We lived in the Whale House for a month while searching for a home to buy in the Puna district of the Big Island. The Whale House is located in a quiet neighborhood across the street from the ocean. The lanai offers a panoramic view of the ocean and the Puna coastline. The view was mesmerizing as we sat there in the mornings drinking coffee and the evenings drinking wine. We enjoyed the roominess of the house and its close location to many of the attractions in Puna and Hilo. Included at the house are snorkel gear, kayaks and bikes. There is also a washer and dryer that comes in handy for longer stays. Jim and Becky were great hosts! They are personable and friendly. They are very knowledgable of the area and gave us good recommendations for activities, restaurants and services. They were always available if we needed anything.

“Beyond our expectations”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2014

Thank you so much, Jim and Becky! We had a wonderful vacation at your rental. The house is beautiful, so serene and comfortable. I loved waking up to the beautiful sunrises, that view is just fabulous! The house itself is very well set up, I couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay. I would never get tired of that view! While the house is a bit off the beaten track, it was so nice to come "home" to Whale House after exploring the area. Absolutely worth the extra bit of driving! Pretty much our only complaint was with the frogs chirping but there's not much that can be done about that. Thank you for all your suggestions, Jim. The beach you told us about was fabulous and your restaurant recommendations were so helpful. Dinner at Kaleo's was the perfect ending to our vacation. We would absolutely love to return to Whale House, hopefully with friends to share the view with. I think I left a little of my heart there.

“Can't wait to come back.”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2013

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.
