We stayed in the cottage for about a week. Was totally beautiful, clean, comfortable and like a home away from home. Incredible lanai overlooking the sea to have breakfast on every day. Delicious starter pack of breakfast food. Beautiful quiet area, perfect for a relaxing retreat but also convenient for the local sights. Had beach chairs and cooler box which... More

My wife and I stayed at Nancy's cottage in December 2014, and it was one of the best vacation rental experiences we have had - the setting was quiet, private, yet close to beaches and town attractions. Since it is at some altitude above the coast, the evenings are pleasantly cool, with beautiful views of the sunset and town view... More

We loved our stay in their studio. All amenities were provided- you name it and it was there for us to use....from kitchen utensils, bakeware to beach towels and icebox. So much care and thought has been put into providing tourists the advantage of enjoying Hawaii without much hassle. The Landlady is a very nice person.

We stayed for about a week in the Nahele cottage. The cottage was very very comfortable and very clean. It is away from town, about 10 minutes, but it was perfect for us. At the end of the day it was nice to come back to the cottage and wake up in the morning with the birds. We slept very... More

We stayed here for five nights in February. Great very quiet spot on the hillside overlooking Kailua-Kona. Excellent central location for exploring the island away from the crowds. Our very spacious single room studio accommodation was spotless. It comes with basic cooking equipment. There were also chairs & towels for on the beach. Geckos and all kinds of colorful birds...

If you want a place to escape from the busy crowd in town, Nancy can provide you with a secluded place with all the necessary amenities. There are two units ( cottage & studio) which are situated 10 minutes from town. We stayed in the cottage which has everything you need (stove, cook wear, dishwasher, humidifier, TV, WiFi). We prepared... More

We are just back to mountains of snow from Kailua-Kona. We spent 4 nights at Nancy's and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is situated on a quiet hillside overlooking Kailua-Kona. We enjoyed warm 80 deg. days at the beach and flannel sheets at night. Nancy greeted us with a annotated map and some local knowledge which was very helpful. If... More

My wife and I stayed in the cottage for 5 nights in January. We were very satisfied with the accommodations. Everything is spotless and well-decorated. The cottage has one bedroom with a king-size bed, a combination mini-kitchen and living room, a full bathroom and a large porch. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and are visited by all sorts of birds,... More

Nancy M, Owner at Nancy's Hideaway, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your wonderful review! I’m so glad that you enjoyed your stay in the Nahele Cottage. The elevation is actually just less than 2,000 feet. The cool nights up-country make for comfortable sleeping weather, but the heaters are there if occasionally needed during winter. I appreciate your suggestion of a larger TV, and I will plan...

Nancy's Nohea studio is perfect in every way! Very spacious, king bed, cozy, spotless, fully stocked with anything you could need, and most of all so tranquil with an amazing lanai to relax! A short drive from town and up on the mountain which is a plus because it's cooler higher up. Nancy is a wonderful host! I couldn't think... More

This was my second time staying at the Nohea Studio. It was great as usual. It is reasonably priced, very private and very quiet. The bed was comfortable and the room is immaculate. Nancy is a wonderful hostess and very helpful. I strongly recommend this place.
