We really enjoyed our stay at Hareswiss. Peter was very helpful with planning our days, renting a car, and booking tours. The rooms are clean, though they are a good walk from the town, which is no problem if you rent a car. Breakfast was fantastic... lots of options and we ate really well. Internet worked well, especially since we... More

Because of unforseen circumstances I had to move to Hare Swiss for the second part of my trip to Easter Island. Peter was unsurpassed in his helpfulness during my extra time on Easter Island. He knows so much about the island, its culture and local people that you would think he had been there his entire life. Actually, he is... More

We were lucky to have found Hareswiss! Peter, who owns and runs the place, was very accommodating - he picked us up from the airport (and dropped us off at the end of our stay), provided us with a ton of breakfast foods everyday, and helped us sign up for a guided tour of the island. The apartments are beautiful... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Hareswiss. Peter was a gracious host that provided transfers to and from the airport, including walking us to the check-in counter upon departure! Peter also arranged a car hire, local dance show, recommended restaurants and booked us a private tour of the island w/ local guide, Christina (highly recommended). Our stay was... More

Nothing but good things to say about our stay at Hare Swiss! Bungalows are clean and well maintained with everything you need for your stay. Peter, his wife, Tiare, and their daughter, Anabelle, are great hosts. Nothing is left to chance. This is one of the best experiences my wife and I have ever had. Peter suggested a tour guide...

This was the best value for the money of my entire trip. Peter the owner picked me up at the airport even though my flight was delayed two hours, arriving at IPC around 1 AM. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was ready to go in the fridge for me each morning, and was good food by island standards. Peter... More

Hare Swiss was a truly wonderful place to stay on Rapa Nui. Peter picked us up from the airport and drove us to the bungalows just below his house. The bungalows were beautiful and very comfortable. There is a small kitchen (you could easily cook your meals here) and breakfast in the morning was perfect. We drank coffee together on... More

Only happens with an extraordinary host. Peter is not just extremely well versed in island history, lore and customs. He will make sure you start your day right with a great breakfast. He will also make certain your days are filled with fascinating touring. And that your spotless cottage welcomes you home. In brief, you have your own personal (warm... More
