"My husband and I spent the last two nights of our 11 day trip to the Big Island here at the Hideaway. After driving down the long driveway and turning into the carport we were blown away by the view before us. Easily the best view on the island (or any island for that matter). The house itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We loved falling asleep to the sound of frogs, although earplugs did come in handy at one point as we slept with all the windows open. It was amazing to wake up early and just sit up in bed to see the view. The house is about 9 miles from town so while it's not too far it may be easier for some to get food and eat meals at the house. There is a fully equipped kitchen (although no microwave) that would make it convenient to prepare meals. We did that our second night and had a great time sitting in the yard and looking at the view while having dinner. The house is about 1/2 mile from the Waipio Valley lookout and it was a very easy walk to the lookout and then a not so easy (but definitely recommended) walk to the beach below.
In addition, we loved meeting Lani the dog. We were missing our two dogs at home and to have Lani come around often was a nice touch. She spent an entire afternoon hanging out with us in the yard and even fell asleep on the porch when we went to bed. When we awoke she was wagging her tail at the door about 2 minutes later. She is a super sweet dog who isn't a fan of bananas, but really loves malasadas and pizza crust. :-)
I would highly recommend this wonderful property!"

"This is a wonderful little get away up in the green hills with a quaint lane and bridge. It is a great place to watch the birds in the yard and enjoy the flowers, but the best part is that you feel so cared for. Karin provides a wonderful personalized assortment of goodies for breakfast and snacks. There are fresh flowers everywhere (unless you are allergic). There is a wealth of cooking utensils, pots and pans. We enjoy cooking at home and this made it easy. The Cottage was one of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii. When we return we would want to stay here again."

"Very comfortable home near the Waipio Valley Overlook.
Small kitchen, but well stocked with what ever you need to cook. Tex Drive-in for Malasadas.
Very close to nature, so we saw lovely plants, cows, horses, birds, geckos, ect. Wonderful view too.
The bird songs were wonderful, but the frog sounds at night could be irritating. That may vary with the time of year. Comfortable beds. Go to the Hawaii Vanilla Company farm - have lunch and take the tour. Delicious, fun and informative. Only a 15 or 20 minute drive. Walk down to the beach from the Waipio Valley Overlook."

"We wanted to try staying somewhere inland for the first time and we loved it. The cottage was comfortable and we loved feeding the pig. Such a lovely place. We walked a short distance up the road and visited the Hawaiian Vanilla Company (great vanilla shakes). We went to Honoka'a several times. Such a darling town. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. My husband and I loved it."
