We stayed for a week at the South Kona Hideaway. It was a dream! Quiet in the mornings/evenings, beautiful views. The rental was very spacious for the two of us, with a nice balcony and comfortable bed. The managers were extremely friendly, and we got fresh fruit and homemade baked goods every day. Anything we needed, they were always there... More

My wife and I have stayed at SKH and it is a perfect place for relaxation, going to beaches, seeing the big island without being caught up in the hubbub of Kailua itself. Close enough to Kailua, airport, and shopping but out in the country enough to feel relaxed and away from the congestion. A number of great beaches are... More

First of all, the location, property and hosts, Tina & Keri, reflect "the true spirit of Aloha" on the Big Island. Away from all the touristy hustle & bustle of Kailua-Kona, but super conveniently just off Rte 11(Belt Road) which will take you anywhere you want to go! It only took me 1.5 hours to drive to either Hawi, up... More

SKH is the perfect establishment. The two apartment units are immaculate in appropriately lush surroundings. Staying in the South Kona district is preferable to the North district with its resorts, condos and shopping centers. The South is authentic and transporting; it's where the locals live. Shops and cafes are family operated except for one McDonalds. Highly, highly recommended.

The suite is incredibly comfortable -- more like a posh apartment than a B & B! We met Tina, and she was very welcoming. Unfortunately, our schedule allowed us only one night there! (We did find the parking nerve-racking, though. You back out directly onto a road with limited visibility. There isn't much traffic on that road, but when the... More

For the past two consecutive years my wife and I have travelled to South Kona Hideaway (SKH) during December and early January. We really love this location and are already planning when we can return again! The Island is beautiful and made more so by having a “home” to return to after a day of exploring or just staying “home”... More

Owners helped us find small, local beaches for relaxing and snorkeling. L & L restaurant, night snorkeling with the mantas, in-room massage by Derek. Stay away from the tourist traps, and stay here. Pick up avacados off the ground, amazing tropical flowers. Enjoy sunsets on private balcony. Located below the vog, somthe ocean is visable from the deck, unobstructed views.... More

We found a jewel in South Kona Hideaway, on the big Island of HAWAII. It's the whole package! A view that will take your breath away every time you watch the sun set or look out at the lush landscape surrounding your room. The rooms are large, comfortable and oh so clean with a separate living room and kitchen area... More

One night was far too little. We will definitely come again. The Lookout has stunning views of the ocean and sunset. The gardens below are loaded with coffee and papaya and plumeria blossoms. The owners dogs are charming, and the hospitality was warm from the first moment we arrived. Parking is easy on a pad at street level, though the... More

We stayed at the South Kona Hideaway for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. We stayed in "the lookout" which had seriously gorgous views. The breakfast was unbelievable each morning. The owner is full of usefull information if you need help deciding what to do, but it's hard to leave because the room is gorgous!!! It's close to great snorkelling... More
