My friend and I had a wonderful stay at Hare Swiss! The cabins are clean and spacious. Our host, Peter, sent a driver to pick us up at the airport, and after we got settled into our cabin, Peter showed us around town so we would know where the stores, post office, good restaurants, and visitor center were. He took us to get our national park passes, and gave us tips on where to go, what to see, and the best times of day for photography. He also set us up for a traditional song/dance show and arranged a rental car and taxi. Peter is a wealth of information on the island and its history. The sea view from the cabin is beautiful with a lone moai at the bottom of the hill. There is a large parking area if you rent a car. In the evenings and early morning, we could sit on the front porch patio and watch the sea and sunsets. Peter loaned us binoculars and brought us po'e bread (banana bread), blueberry muffins, and bananas from his own tree. When it was time for him to take us to the airport, he gave us moai key chains that his wife makes. Hare Swiss was the perfect place to stay.

Glad that we chose Hareswiss. We concur with most of the reviews for this - a great place to stay on Easter Island, comfortable and very helpful / friendly host. We read a number of excellent reviews before decided to book Hareswiss. We were not disappointed. We stayed in a double room (with one king bed and a single bed which we did not use). Hareswiss has 3 standalone bunglows. Host Peter and his young family live in a separate bungalow on the property. The room was very clean and very large with a fully equipped kitchenette, a small fridge, dining table and chairs. The bathroom had shower over bath (good water pressures) and toilet paper can be flushed (not put in a bin). Each bungalow has a verandah with views to the sea and nice sunset. The king bed in our bungalow was very comfortable. The internet on the island was not the best, but it was like that for everyone. Host Peter is a former purser for Swiss Air, and he speaks fluent English. He was very prompt in replying to emails when we made the booking. The room rates included transfer to and from the airport - Peter picked us up and took us back to airport. Breakfasts were a little extra, but Peter provided us (in the fridge) plenty of fresh bread, fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs, ham and cheese, fruit juice, milk, cereals etc. He serviced and cleaned the bungalow everyday with fresh towels, bed making, and refresh breakfast items. We rented one of Peter's cars (a small SUV) during our stay. He lent us a book on Easter Island - very helpful. Driving around the Island was pretty straight forward - however, we downloaded a map of the island on our ipad and iphone before the trip and were able to use it for navigation. So, we recommend you do this (offline map). We highly recommend this place. Peter was a wonderful host who made us feel at home and welcome.

We have stayed 8 days at Rapa Nui πŸ—ΏπŸ—ΏπŸ—Ώ - beginning of July - and what a beatiful vacation... what is more comfortable than a bungalow at Hare Swiss?? Fantastic place to stay. The seaside and Moai view is astonishing. Direct service of car rental and 5 minutes by car from there to the center of Hanga Roa. Thank you Peter for your full and kind attention and excellent service! It was nice to talk to you 😁😁😁

My wife and I recently completed an eight night stay at the Harswiss. In every way it was outstanding. Peter, the owner of the Hareswiss is very approachable for ideas and suggestions. He is genuinely committed to making sure his guests have a memorable experience on Easter Island. The bungalows are spotless, well furnished, spacious and comfortable. We loved spending time on the balconies relaxing while taking in the views of the Pacific Ocean. The breakfast was affordable, offered a nice varieity and plentiful. Like many other reviewers, we also rented a car through Peter. It couldn't have been easier, convenient and was less expensive than the agencies in town. Easter Island is a magical place. Hareswiss and Peter made our time on the island even more memorable. Should our travels ever take us back, we would certainly look forward to another stay at Hareswiss!
