After researching the web for a nice place to stay on the Easter Island I found Hareswiss on Tripadvisor with lots of good reviews. I booked right away and did not get disappointed at all. Peter picked us up from the airport in the early morning with a typical Lei and gave us a short tour through Hanga Roa showing... More

If you are reading this review and have not yet booked a room at Hareswiss, stop reading and email Peter immediately. If Hareswiss is available, just book it and I guarantee you will be happy with your choice. It's the best place in EI irrespective of price, but it also happens to be great value. The cabins are spacious, comfortable... More

We stayed with Peter and Tiare in early March 2015 and had an amazing time. Peter picked us up at the airport, bearing fresh leis. He then drove us through town, helpfully pointing out what we needed to know and stopping at a grocery store so that we could stock up. He's a font of great information on the island,... More

There were four of us staying in two bungalows for three nights. The bungalows were built with pride by owner Peter and his father-in-law. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. The artwork was made by Peter's wife Tiare. They provided an amazing breakfast which was so huge that you could wrap it up to take a picnic lunch... More

We loved these cabanas overlooking the ocean in Easter Island. Peter "gets it" when it comes to understanding what travellers need and want to make their stay spectacular. From the moment we contacted him his advice and guidance were bang on for making our stay in Easter Island special. He picked us up from the airport and helped us figure... More

What a great place to stay. 25 minutes walking to the center of town, but off the beaten path for great peace and quite. Peter picked us up at the airport as promised. He gave us a quick run down of town and places to eat and see. We booked peter for an all day island tour well worth every... More

Clean, spacious, nice sunset view, save, excellent cost/benefit ratio! It was our 3rd stay on Rapa Nui, but we would never chose another place anymore on the island. Peter, the owner, is a great host, supports you whenever you have an issue and has always an open ear, may organise you anything you might need or even dream of -... More

My family stayed there for about 4 days 2 years ago. The house was clean and beautiful, and location is ideal. Peter gave us a tour on our first day, and he's very knowledgeable and gave you a lot of insight of the island history, culture. Communication before travel was very easy too. Unfortunately, my husband and my kids got... More

My husband and I had always wanted to go to Easter Island but weren't sure what kind of lodging would be best. Hareswiss proved to be ideal. It is close enough to everything you want to see -- and frankly you want to see everything the island has to offer. But it also feels like you are in your own... More

Peter and his family were the highlight of Hare Swiss. Peter gave us an introduction to the island and orientation our first morning there and lent us his copy of the Guide to Easter Island (a must if you are self-guiding) when we got a car to drive around. His recommendations are spot on. I've traveled a lot and frequently... More
