What an amazing vacation made all the more spectacular by Lou and South Kona Hideaway!
This is the place to stay if you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle. We stayed in the Lookout room and the views of the surrounding area and ocean are breathtaking. Do not be mistaken, this is a rural area and we chose it for that reason. We wanted to be living as the locals live, and not slap in the middle of the tourist action and the South Kona Hideaway delivered!
Our suite was well appointed and most important for us, great bed, great view, good shower and a kitchenette. Rising early with the time change can be an issue but all was resolved when we got up early, ground our own fresh Kona coffee, relaxed, decided on the day and then ate wonderful fresh fruit and breads Lou dropped off for breakfast.
Lou is a fantastic host, there when you need him, gone when you don't. He suggested places to eat that were wonderful as well as places to shop that equally delighted.
Though it had no impact on our trip, there are roosters. And they crow early in the morning, but for us they just added to overall experience.
We highly recommend the South Kona Hideaway and look forward to our next visit.
