About the property

King Bed Suite with full kitchen and full bath, kayaks and SUPs included

Beth’s Hawaiian Hideaway

Aloha and welcome to Beth’s Hawaiian Hideaway in South Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. This King bed studio is a romantic place for your stay on the Big island. You may cook your own meals in the kitchen (gas stove top, full size refrigerator & microwave) or dine out-it’s your choice. We are close to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants and many activities and a great jumping-off place for other activities around the island. This adorable and spacious (600 sq. ft.) king studio is open, bright and airy. The entire ocean facing wall of the Hideaway is filled with windows and peaceful views of the lawn, landscaping, trees and the coastline up to Kealakekua Bay.

Enjoy the lovely living room area with “elephant” bamboo couch and chairs, cable TV, DVD player and both indoor and outdoor dining areas. Sleep like a baby in the comfy king size bed and relax in the private bath with tub and shower, complimentary robes included. The beautifully equipped kitchen is there for those who’d like to cook. You have your own BBQ. You will have a separate entrance and privacy in a beautiful residential area. All suites have a TV with basic cable, DVD and internet access.

There is also a shared pool.

This is a great place for couples or anyone who would like to have a wonderful Kona, Big Island vacation rental that’s much more affordable and offers more privacy than most condos and B and B’s offer. You will have access to four stand up paddle boards and 3 kayaks free of charge. All suites have a TV with Direct Satellite TV , DVD and internet access.

What makes this apartment unique

We are less than 10 minutes from two great places to snorkel & kayak, (Two Steps at Honaunau) right at the entrance to Pu’uHonua O Honaunau National Historical Park. (City of Refugee) and Captain Cook's Monument, home of The spectacular marine sanctuary at Kealakekua Bay. That offers an abundance of colorful tropical fish, a variety of beautiful coral reefs and visibility often to 100 feet. The calm, protected waters and sunny skies of Kealakekua Bay provide superior snorkeling and diving year round, with the water temperature averaging 76 degrees.

The Hideaways have a full kitchen “Paniolo King suite” or efficiency kitchen ”Plumeria Queen suite” for your own meals or we are located near some very nice restaurants.

We have wireless connection for our clients.

We hope that you will book with us and share our beautiful location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"My first trip to Hawaii could not have been more magical. Staying at Beth and Dave's place was simply great. Every detail was accurately represented in their property description. If anything, it was way BETTER than they had put into their entry. Charming is an understatement. The place is oozing the creative character in gracious style of the hosts. All the amenities were great, including some bells and whistles that one doesn't normally expect - kayaks, bikes, pool, etc. Beth & Dave where helpful, knowledgeable and lovely to be around. The location was wonderful, close to fantastic snorkeling and some of the best sea kayaking of my life. We actually had 2 humpbacks breach 20 ft. off our sea kayak one sunset outing at Pt. of Refuge!!! WOW!!! If you are interesting in experiencing some outrageous nature and staying in a comfortable home-like setting it can't be beat. This is a fantastic accomodation and we will definately be recommending it to friends and family. More importantly, we'll be coming back to paradise to stay here again. We already miss our gecko friends we made there.

Thanks again!

Awesome property!

We loved our stay in Captain Cook and Beth and David were wonderful. The cute unit had everything anyone could ever need for a comfortable vacation. Hope to come back soon.

Amazing place away ftom the crowds

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place in the Big Island green and luxurious countryside. The apartment is cozy and it has everything you need. Dave is an extreme gentle host. Just make sure you and your company love the tropical nature concert: very relaxing if you like it or the cause for a sleepless night if it disturbes you!

Doubt truth to be a liar...

A Hawaian home right out of our dreams

  • 5 of 5

Beth and Dave have turned their guesthouse into a very special place for those to enjoy and are fortunate enough to stay there for a while. So much care has been taken when decorating the rooms that it will take you more than a day to discover all the details. From appliances to dishes to towels to coffee mugs to lamps to...on and on and on - everything you find spells out A-L-O-H-A for you.

The place is bliss and magic and we finally had the Hawaian feeling we all had hoped for. The next day Dave helped us get the kayaks on the car and showed us where to find dolphins. And there they were - a few dozen of them swimming and jumping around our kayaks. The next day we went snorkeling - yet another #1 experience on our trip through Hawai.

And when you come back home, a pool, a BBQ and the perfect house await you.

We wish we could have stayed longer, but the island is big and it's a bit far to explore the Eastside from here. So take your time and maybe stay a little longer on the Westcoast. In Beth's and Dave's house the extra time will be well spent!

Felt like Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5

The Captian Cook area is very lush and it felt a lot like Costa Rica. The condo had everything you would need, including beach chairs and towels. If you needed it... it was there! It was very, very clean. The bed was comfortable, as were the sheets. The pool was nice and it close to many snorkeling sites. Even though the units were close to each other, the place felt very private. I would stay there again.

Just lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the fun and funky Hawaiians decor in this perfect hideaway studio. Welcoming ambiance and hosts. Homey touches of fresh fruit, coffee and macnut chocolates to greet us. Flexible check in/out times. An amazing array of beach toys. Paradise found!
