We were met and transferred from Mataveri Airport to Hareswiss Bungalows where we were warmly welcomed with a plate of sliced meats and cheeses, and a bottle of Chilean wine by our lovely host, Tiare. She brought us Continental breakfast each morning, and chatted several times every day, friendly without being at all intrusive. We spent five relaxing days before joining our cruise, walking in the lush gardens and driving around the island and getting to know this fascinating place and meeting the mighty Moai! Each evening we would enjoy a glass of wine and nibbles, bought from a nearby shop, on our balcony overlooking the gardens and down to the sea - perfecto! The property is close to town and easy to find after a day of exploring. It was home, with a real family feel. Unfortunately we did not meet Tiare's husband Peter as he was in hospital in Santiago. The room is airy and spacious and immaculately clean and comfortable, and the kitchenette meant we could prepare light meals if we wanted. A perfect place to relax and unwind.

While my wife and I were flying to Easter Island the Chilean government announced the cancellation of all international flights two days later due to Covid 19. When we arrived at Hareswiss, Peter informed us immediately and drove us back into town to the best place with Wifi so we could make arrangements to get back to Canada. After two hours of fruitless searching he picked us up and drove us back to Hareswiss. It was a very stressful situation trying to figure out how to get out of Easter Island so we could make our return flight from Santiago but we eventually were able to get in the last commercial flight out. Peter was invaluable with his local knowledge and support. We have stayed in a lot of five star hotels in many countries but I have never experienced such caring, compassionate service as Peter provided. Hareswiss is a beautiful property, clean, quiet, private, a short taxi ride to all of the restaurants and with, in my books, one of the nicest gentleman you will ever meet. I will go back to Easter Island some day and will stay at Hareswiss again.

The owner of the property could not be more accommodating or welcoming to his guests. You feel like an extension of his family when you are there. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The views of sunset were wonderful. Highly recommend getting an Entel SIM card before going to Easter Island to be able to stay connected when you are away from the WiFi of Hareswiss.

Hare Swiss is located very close to the the town of Hanga Roa on Easter Island. Peter Nief, a Swiss born citizen who speaks umpteen languages including English, French, German and Spanish, is the perfect host! Peter knows the island inside and out, knows the culture, the politics and much about the fauna and flora of the island. He has built three properties which all overlook the ocean with front porches where you can sit in the evening and view the incredible sunsets. They overlook Cook's Point, the landing point for Captain Cook. All three separate units have kitchenettes and dining areas. Peter has fruit trees growing on his property - mango, bananas, avocados and other plants.

We had a great stay here - Peter and his family were very hospitable, and helped us with any questions we had (including dealing with some airline issues!). Everything was taken care of and the property itself is very nice. We really enjoyed our stay here.
