Who can you trust to care for the needs of your home when you’re not there?

What Hawaii Home Watch by Big Island PMC does for you!

We monitor the condition of your home while you’re away with routinely scheduled interior and exterior inspections.   Our goal is to give you the peace of mind that your home will be in the condition you left it when you return to your piece of paradise!

Every home is not the same, and each Homeowner may have different concerns.  Our basic plan was created from personal experience, research, and feedback from Homeowners.  The inspections focus on the most common potential issues that will arise in a home left unattended.   While weekly inspections are recommended, we also provide semi-monthly, and monthly visits.  We’ll work with you to customize a plan tailored to your specific needs.

You will receive a detailed report after each inspection, so you know the condition of the property.  The report includes pictures, and any potential issues or concerns brought to your attention with a recommended action.
