About DM Shroyer

We live in Portland, Oregon most of the year, but love to escape to Kona during the mainland rainy season! We purchased this property as it spoke to our romantic nature...

DM Shroyer purchased this house in 2000

Why DM Shroyer chose World

We chose this property for it's tranquil setting, view and climate - which is awesome at this elevation. Though our renovation of the house(s) is well-appointed and modern, the surrounding neighborhood has a laid-back feel, with coffee growers on the hill, even a chocolate 'factory' nearby. And, if you get your fill of peace and relaxation, 'Civilization' is only a few minutes away...

What makes this house unique

The Hideaway offers plenty of privacy, while still close and convenient to all amenities. Some of our guests compare it to staying at their own private spa!

The main house (with it's 3 separate 'cabanas' - each with it's own full bed & bath), surround a beautifully attended courtyard. On the surrounding grounds, we encourage our guests to explore the variety of lush foliage, flowers and trees. Also, retrieve fresh, ripe papaya, lime, and other fruits for a delicious tropical breakfast!

If you enjoyed the movie, 'Enchanted April', we think you'll love the Hideaway...

Guestbook comments from the owner

As those who came before us, we are not ready to leave our home away from home. The sunsets were amazing, we loved feeding the birds in the morning and watching the geckos. The fresh fruits from the trees and tasting things we've never seen. We also loved all the privacy. The house provides everything needed for a relaxing vacation. The towels are thick and soft, the bed so comfortable. The beach towels and acccessories are an added bonus. So we bid farewell to this very special place.

Great property. Amazing view, and the amenities were top notch. Highly recommend this spot.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days here and loved it. The Lanai is where we spent most of our time when at the house. It is very secluded and quiet. The amenities were well thought out - easy access to BBQ, Laundry, clothes line, Kitchen, hoses, etc. Anything you needed, it was there.

Perfect location to go North or South Kona. Most of the tours (kayak, snorkel, etc.) are very close by. Yet, you are away from the more touristy Kailua area.

The hot tub didn't work perfectly, but that was the only glitch.

We will stay again next time on the Big Island. Fantastic vacation spot.

Beautiful Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful!! The view alone was worth the price. We stay in most days and took advantage of the pool, hot tub, and outdoor spaces. This is an open air type of home which was a fun way to spend a few days immersed in the Hawaiian breeze as birds sang away. We were able to pick ripe fruit from the many different trees and enjoyed the many beautiful flowers. We ran into the staff when we first arrived and they were really great. Took some extra time to get out pool toys for the kids and a pack n play for our littlest. Made sure we had everything we needed, and that all questions we might have were answered. Everything was very clean and well stocked. Our family is already looking forward to our next stay!

Wonderful house high above the Kona coast!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a beautiful location. Layout of the house is perfect, giving all members of our party (5 adults) privacy as well as places to be together. Loved the flow of the spaces from outside to inside to outside again. Neat nooks and crannies everywhere, and always a great view. Landscaping is incredible --- so many beautiful plants --- and we could pick delicious fruit to eat right off the trees! Lovely lanai, pool and hot tub overlooking the ocean --- we spent a lot of time here gazing out over the ocean while drinking tropical beverages. House is very well stocked with all equipment and utensils you could need for cooking and eating; entertainment is covered with lots of games, books, and DVDs. Beds are generally comfortable and bathrooms are very nice. Grocery store, drugstore, shops and restaurants are conveniently located a short drive away at the Keauhou Shopping Center. The only downside during our stay was the current eruption of Kilauea causing "vog" along the southwest side of the island; this made the view not quite as clear and beautiful as the photo here in the listing, but we noticed no sulfur smells or any ill effects (recommend heading up north to Kohala or over to Hilo and the Hamakua coast for vog-free vistas).

Things to be aware of: 1) One or more nearby roosters crow BEFORE dawn every morning, followed shortly by a beautiful but LOUD symphony of bird songs; go to bed early! 2) Traffic noise from Highway 11 (which is way down below the house) does make it up to the house, but it lessens to almost nothing at night. 3) The twin beds in the third bedroom are small, obviously meant for kids; not a great fit for adults, although our daughter made do (the other two bedrooms are perfect for couples). 4) Keep the screen doors closed at all times to keep the geckos and bugs outside! 5) Drive SLOWLY up the private access road to the driveway especially if you have a low-riding vehicle, or else you risk scraping your underbody on the road.

In summary, we would definitely return to this house if we ever have the opportunity again --- highly recommended!

Wonderful tropical escape

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with open air spaces. Amazing deck with beautiful views. We stayed in a lot and hung out at the pool. There are many fruit trees on property. The property is private on a hill overlooking kona. Maybe 8 minutes drive to the closest beach. Many of Kona’s beaches are rocky though, so if you have young children like us you might want to drive north to the soft sand beaches.

This gorgeous property is located just south of Kailua-Kona, 800 feet above the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The Keauhou Shopping Center, (Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort and Spa adjacent), is directly below us, with great shopping, restaurants, movie theaters & convenient Post Office. This property and location has something for everyone...unwind on the newly appointed deck beside the infinity pool and jacuzzi, or sit on the lanai and take in the lush vegetation and fruit trees. Serene setting with panoramic Ocean Views, the tropical setting and bird visits are a delight.

Just above our location, neighbor Alaina welcomes you with her Award Winning coffee at the Wailele Coffee Farm (tours available). If you wish, another neighbor will gladly provide farm-fresh eggs (see house info book or inquire with owner/agent).

A visit to nearby Holualua, (up the hill from Kailua-Kona), you will find a delightful artists' community, coffee plantation and shops. The Holuakoa Garden provides a fantastic Brunch (Lunch & Dinner too!).

The close by Kealakakua Bay offers snorkeling (see dolphin, manta ray among others), along with fishing & water sports. At the south end of the Bay, a cultural visit to Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park - The Place of Refuge - is beautiful and unique - well worth a visit!

For further excursion, we enjoy a day trip to Hawi at the north end of the Island, visiting Pololu Valley Lookout after eateries and shops along the way. The drive back on Hwy 250 through Parker Ranch (& Museum), and on ahead to Waimea is fantastic. We like to take Hwy 190 back to Kailua-Kona for a different view than the coast road... the Island's diversity is stunning - don't leave the camera behind!

Our crew maintains the grounds and solar pool on a regular basis, and are never intrusive (you most likely will not know they are there!). To ensure you the best experience possible however, we will alter any maintenance scheduled during your stay if need be - just ask.

As Owners of The Hideaway we love our time here away from our mainland home in Oregon (we are never on-site during enjoyment by our guests, however). It is not just a 'rental' to us! We have owned the property for quite a number of years, so we have much more information on local places to eat, visit, etc. in a Notebook for our Guests on-site. We will be happy to provide the complete, owners' "best spots and favorites" ahead of your stay to help plan your Holiday in Paradise...

Much Aloha!...we look forward to having you as our guests!
