Property description

Tropical Hideaway is a charming Hawaii-style downstairs studio apartment in a lush garden setting, with ocean and sunset views, plus a swimming pool with waterfall and private hot tub. Tropical Hideaway is just a three minute drive from fabulous snorkeling, kayaking, diving and dolphin experiences at Honaunau (Two Step), and close to Kealakekua Bay & Ho'okena Bay.

The beautifully landscaped garden is filled with mango, papaya, banana, likikoi, lemons, limes and other fruit trees and flowers. Pick your own breakfast (some fruits are seasonal) and relax in the back to nature environment or explore the island by day and return to your cozy retreat by night. Private hot tub and outdoor shower. Explore the awesome beauty of Hawaii's active volcano or the upcountry pastures of Parker Ranch and the cowboy country of Waimea--each just a 1.5 hour drive.

Tropical Hideaway is located on the west side of the 'Big Island' of Hawaii about 20 miles south of the town of Kailua-Kona, 1 mile off the main island highway near the 'Painted Church,' and 2 miles from the 'Place of Refuge' National Park at Honaunau.

Rates: Studio $120 per night + tax and $80 cleaning fee for 1-2 persons, 4 night minimum with advance reservation. (Futon couch also available for a child 10+ or third person, $15/night additional for 3rd person.)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I've had a love affair with Hawaii since I first lived on Maui in the '60s. I am thrilled to be able to offer a vacation rental in the Captain Cook/Honaunau area, which is my favorite place to live.

Why the Owner Chose Captain Cook, HI, USA:
This wonderful location is three minutes from the best snorkeling on the island, with wild dolphins and turtles as well. It is in a lush, tropical area, filled with fruit trees and gardens--private, quiet and rural, yet within easy driving distance of a variety of cultural sites and natural wonders.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
I start each morning with a swim or snorkel in the ocean, then enjoy breakfast either on the lanai or poolside. Kayaking is a favorite pastime, as well as hiking nearby trails. Volcano National Park is a 1.5 hour drive, and if I want an evening in town or to dine at a nice restaurant, I'm within 30 minutes of Kailua-Kona.
