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

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.

There is a lot of accommodation available on the Big Island and around the Kona region. So it took us a while before deciding where to stay. But we were very happy we chose to stay at Nancy's Hideaway. We deliberately rated this place as excellent as we could really not think of 1 bad thing about this place. We... More

We booked the Nohea Studio at Nancy's for 4 nights in November, 2014. We wanted privacy & we got it plus more. The gardens and lawns are well-kept. The location is not too hot during the day and cool at night (perfect for sleeping). We felt at home during our stay. The bed was firm, yet comfortable and the place... More

A beautiful secluded cottage in the misty woods. Pheasants and wild chickens, and fruit on the trees. Stocked with all amenities. Nancy is very helpful and pleasant. Not far from shops, etc. An ideal place to stay, and well priced.

We started our Big Island honeymoon with 4 nights at the Studio here. It was a wonderful decision after the madness (good madness, but still madness) of our wedding/wedding planning...to come to Nancy's Hideaway and relax. The studio is spotless & homey. The patio is wonderful, and great for leisurely breakfasts. Nancy is very friendly and provided everything we needed.... More
