“really hideaway”

we had difficulties finding the HIDEaway, because we trusted google maps.... only trust in what the owner writes and so you will find it without problems.....
once here, everything was as we expected and still a bit better. everything you really need is here (except a large bed, we are used to have one, so this is not a reproach)
get asleep with the chants of the coqui frogs is (fos us) fantastic. we really prefer this sound instead of a highway, loud neighbour's TV or people step dancing on your head in the appartement above...) when the frogs stop the roosters in the woods begin, when they stop, the birds begin to sing..... the sounds of the jungle, NOT New York City.... for every nature lover PARADISE! We love especially the fully equipped kitchen and the perfect working wi-fi to write our blog daily without going to a internet café. for us swisses where everythibng is close, driving half an hour to the national park seems a bit long, but now we are here in BIG island....and gas is so cheap (too cheap to teach people just to make working their engine when the car is moving....) another thing I would buy immediately if the house were mine: a shower to take in my hand, (not fixed to a wall) but the pressure is good and warm water also comes good, you might need it when visiting in winter al we are doing right now. WE WOULD COME BACK, YES, WE WOULD

Aloha Frank & Susi,
We hope you enjoyed your stay.
Thank you for leaving us a nice review on FlipKey.
We like your idea of adding a hand shower, and will do so on our next visit. Sorry we do not have a King Bed, but we hope you still found it a comfortable bed to get a good night sleep. We also enjoy all of the sounds of nature at the Hideaway.
We look forward to reading your blog about your travels.
We wish you all the best and safe travels in the future.
Mahalo,
Bob & Linda

“Secluded, peaceful, lovely”

I stayed for a week in Our Hawaiian Hideaway with my cousin and we enjoyed it thoroughly. We had the misfortune to come in after dark in the rain, but the directions that were provided were so good that we had no trouble at all finding the property. Likewise the directions for access to the house were clear and complete. That said, I'd recommend that you try to arrive in the daylight hours to make it a little easier on yourself. This is not a neighborhood with bright street lights! There are some solar powered lights lining the long driveway from the gate to the cottage, but they don't seem to get enough sunlight to get powered up and so didn't provide any illumination. It's not a huge problem - bright beams on the car were perfectly fine for negotiating the driveway.

The cottage is located about halfway between Hilo Airport and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It's a great location for visiting the volcanoes, and good for things in and around Hilo (it's about 16 or 17 miles from the airport), but a little far if you plan to spend much time on the Kona side of the Big Island. There's plenty to do on the southeast part of Hawaii, even if the government shuts down the National Parks. For a first-time visitor, this is a good location.

The seclusion of this property was one of the things we really enjoyed. Sitting on the lanai for a breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt and toasted Hawaiian sweet bread was a real treat. The local flora (anthuriums and other beautiful flowers) and fauna (saw the chickens, heard the coquis) contributed to the atmosphere. The kitchen is very well equipped and we could easily have cooked meals there, but mainly used the coffee maker, toaster, knives, cutting board, corkscrew and refrigerator.

The bathroom was furnished not only with bath towels but also with beach towels. There's a hair dryer as well.

The cottage is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. There are helpful labels on light switches and in other places where you might need a little guidance or a reminder.

There is a VCR/DVD player with the TV. We had some trouble with the remote control, but doing it the old-fashioned way (pushing buttons on the player) worked for us.

There is a double bed (maybe queen size) in the bedroom and a futon in the living room that can (in principle) sleep two. I had trouble getting the futon folded down flat to make a bed, but I attribute that to my inexperience with futons. There was a notebook with direction on how to do it, but I couldn't quite get the hang of it.

Bob and Linda, the owners, were great. They were very accommodating when we decided to change our reservation to add a day, and were very clear in the directions they provided, telling us all we needed to know about the property for our stay. They asked that we call when we arrived so they would know that we were settled, and to make sure that everything was in order. They gave good advice on shopping (get the fruit at the farmers' markets!) and were more than willing to provide suggestions on things to do or see.

This is definitely a place to return to.

“Perfect seclusion!”

Well named as it is the perfect hideaway! Every modern convenience, e.g., cable tv, wifi, even AC if you need it, along with seclusion in a tropical setting. The beach is a short drive (20-30 min) away so if you want to hear the surf, you need to look elsewhere. This is the perfect location for visiting Volcanoes National Park (about a 30 min or so drive) or exploring the east coast of the big island. Will definitely stay again!

“Perfect!! Loved everything about it!”

We stayed at this cottage for 5 nights during our honeymoon. everything about it was perfect.
It was a good size for the 2 of us and the kitchen contained everything needed to cook a nice meal. The decor was really cute with great ornaments around to keep you amused and the whole house had a real holiday yet homely feel.
The large lanai was fantastic and was encased with mosquito netting so we could sit out and relax without worrying about getting bitten.
The garden was stunning, so lush and green with the gentle sound of wildlife. It would be easy to spend hours just walking around the garden looking at all the different aspects of it. The house was surrounded by trees and plants and down a long gated driveway so it felt completely private and away from the crowds and other tourists, yet still close to all amenities and only a few minutes drive to the Volcano National Park.
Overall a fantastic little gem, great for couples and honeymooners!!
