The rooms are nice and clean (with small balconies), the breakfast is good and the service is great!! Steve and his wife are of great help in organizing things to do during your stay and impeccable hosts :-)

If you want to meet the best host you will ever have, come to Chez Steve. All the reviews are correct. Steve and his family will make your visit to Easter Island run perfectly. He helps with everything and truly cares about his guests.

The room is basic but spotless. The breakfast is good and varied.

Easter Island can be an astoundingly expensive place, so I was thankful for affordable options like Chez Steve. Like others have noted, Steve was immediately available for airport transfer and provided a quick city tour to familiarize my wife and me with Hanga Roa. He took care of car rentals, provided advice about the island and offered a number of other useful services as well. The residentia itself is quite simple - basically a spartan studio with no cooking appliances - but it was very clean and had plenty of hot water for showers. If you're somewhat budget conscious, its hard to imagine a better value on Easter Island.

This was certainly one of the very best experiences we ever had abroad. Easter Island is already a magical location, but Steve and his family will make sure that your stay remains unforgettable and provide you with the extra information to better understand its mysteries.
Right after our arrival on the island, Steve showed us every place of interest in Hanga Roa (restaurants of interest, supermarkets, post-office, petrol-station, car rental, etc....).
For the french-speaking among you, we can only warmly recommend taking a 1-day guided tour around the island with Steve. He is passionate about the history, culture of the island. Married with Ana who is Rapa Nui, he is in a unique position to provide you with unique insights and anecdotes into the local culture. We left the residence at 9:30 and came back after 6pm on that day with a very nice (Rapa Nui) lunch-break at the best beach on the island (arriving and leaving there before the tourist agencies and the beach gets packed).
For english-speakers he recommends an english-speaking guide (we followed a lot of his recommendations and were never disappointed).
On the second day, we rent a car to explore other sites across the island on our own. Here as well Steve provided valuable inputs on how to organize the route, what to see and how to get there. He even provides you with a cell-phone in case of an emergency.
Based on his advice we attended on one evening a nearby traditional dance show. It's not the kind of stuff we usually do, but it was totally worth it (and especially female audience will love it :-p)
With respect to the residence itself, there are 3 rooms, which are clean, spacious and offer a very nice balcony to relax after a long day. The residence is not located right in the centre of Hanga Roa, rather a bit at the periphery. But you will be close to one of the most beautiful Rapa Nui sites of the island (and probably the best for enjoying the sunset).
The breakfast was one of the best during our trip across Chile and Argentina. They try to change the content every day, the bread was fresh. And if you are in the mood of it, you can watch in parallel a film trying to uncover the mysteries of the island.
Steve and his family did everything to make our stay on Easter Island the best possible. Do not hesitate a second to book there.

The room was spacious, new and clean. Steve and his family couldn't be more hospitable. A delicious breakfast with every day a different little extra. They took a lot of time in explaining us about the island, routes and points of interest. Even while we didn't took their tour around the island, they explained us everything they knew. They picked us up and brought us back at the airport, even stopped at the post office so we could send our postcards. First day he took a lot of time to show us around the village and explaining us which restaurants were best value. They really made an effort in that we, as their guests, wouldn't get ripped off. I very appreciated it and gave me a feeling that they really cared about us tourists, having a great time and would leave with a good satisfied feeling about the island and their people. Steve and his family did everything to make our trip as best as possible and I can recommend everybody to stay at Chez Steve!

I can't write anything to compliment Steve, his family, and his guest house that hasn't already been said. In short, all were superb.

It's been written below that Steve doesn't speak English very well, but I strongly disagree. You can't have some jargon-filled conversation with him, but I feel that he understood me very clearly and I clearly understood him. His English isn't an issue, and it shouldn't concern you if you're planning to book here.

Steve picked us up after our flight from Lima landed at 6:35 AM. Let's say that the speed of the immigration line isn't the fastest, so who knows how long he waited for us. But when we did finally emerge from the airport, we were greeted with bougainvillea (every bougainvillea on the island was in full "bloom") garlands.

Since it was early, Steve drove us straight to the guest house, gave us a chance to nap/freshen up and invited us to breakfast at 10:00 (delayed an hour due to our arrival; breakfast is usually at 9:00). Breakfast every morning was some kind of delicious fresh tropical fruit (avocado, papaya, etc.), bread, ham, cheese, orange juice, tea/coffee, and on our last day, crepes. At breakfast on the first day, he asked what we were interested in doing, and laid out a dozen or so pamphlets in front of us, saying that he'd take care of reservations for anything we'd like to do. Then he gave us a quick tour of town.

Steve later booked a rental car for us (at a ~10 USD/day discount), booked our horseback riding trip (which I highly recommend for exploring the northern coast, even though my butt is still sore a week later), suggested dinner and a show (where we found our his daughter, Noelany, dances/works), and gave us a cell phone to call him or Noelany if we ever needed help. 4 days flew by, and all too soon it was time for our return to the mainland.

Steve drove us back to the airport, gave us souvenir necklaces as we left, and said he hopes that we return to the island soon.

Rooms are superbly clean, service is excellent, and the guest house is ideally located 10-15 mins by foot from the center of Hanga Roa. Having spent 4 days on the island, I'm pretty certain that there's no B&B, hotel, inn, or guest house which is more ideally located at such value than Steve's place. Don't hesitate to book.

I was being lazy after returned from this 12 days trip in May, and totally felt guilty not leaving a word here about Steve's lovely B&B.
His room was really clean and huge size (compared to what you expect from a B&B), service was very friendly even though he and his wife don't speak english, we could only guess by words between each other but that was not an issue.
His daughter speaks good english and they took us to a private whole day tour with beach lunch which I highly recommend, Steve is very knowledgable about the island and history, and I do recommend to do so within first day or two of your visit.
Breakfasts each morning were great quality too, Steve would serve different food everyday, and they were all delicious, I specifically love the fruit and their fresh juice!
B&B is about 10mins walk from/to town center, which was not a problem for us. We also had a car rental for 3 days (originally booked 2 days but found it neccessary to have a car around on the island). Yes you can hear the cocks in the mornng but i didn't mind it and found it lovely. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and watch Steve's dog running around.
Overall, a lovely place to stay at and I highly recommend.
