Excellent room for a getaway after a busy day of exploring. Very clean and lovely room, fully stocked kitchen and bathroom. She provided all the little things we didn't think about - lunch tupperware, a cooler, beach towels and beach chairs, chip clips! We really enjoyed out 4 night stay. A short 15 min drive into Kona. Would highly recommend.

I was alone last time I was here in late 2011, but returned this time with a friend. The cottage was about the same, except for some remodeling in the kitchen. If I was to stay here for a month or more, that would be fine. While the kitchen lacks an oven, the toaster oven did OK by my cooking... More

We’ve been going back to Nancy's Hideaway for years as it is our favorite place to stay on the Big Island. We first stayed in Nahele Cottage which is the larger of the two properties and has the luxury of a separate bedroom, wonderfully big lanai, is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Over the past few years we’ve stayed... More

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
