The 'Bamboo Hideaway' has an excellent ocean view. It is situated close to an old stand of large bamboo, hence the name. Entry and parking are private and at ground level.

This accommodation offers slate floors, granite counter tops, King bed, full bath, cooking facilities, refrigerator, and kitchen island. A large screened lanai encloses the dining and lounge area with a full 10ft.sliding glass door to the lanai and two very comfortable lounges. Free laundry facilities are available in the garage. Shopping is close as well as 12 min. to ocean snorkeling and kayaking. Coffee and macadamia farms to visit.

A short 10 min. drive will take you down to the beach, Capt. Cook monument & Place of Refuge. Great snorkeling and kayaking.

The accommodations are compact but well designed, very pleasant decor.

There are several very good restaurants and a grocery store within one mile drive.

This is a smoke free environment for your enjoyment. Sorry no pets.

Beautiful place for two

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Bamboo Hideaway! The view is amazing, the hosts very responsive and the atmosphere relaxing. This property is off the beaten track but within close range to beaches, great restaurants, and all the things you’ll want to experience on the west side of the island. The bed is comfortable and the lanai is the crowning jewel. The hosts not only provide laundry facilities and detergent but snorkel gear, beach chairs and umbrellas! All you need to bring is a bottle of wine and a positive attitude.

Truly beautiful and restful getaway

  • 4 of 5

We loved our getaway at this beautiful place. The best part is the screened in lanai which pretty much serves as dining/living room and is where we spent most of our time. It was very private and has a beautiful view of hillside overlooking ocean.

We gave it a 4 star because when the upstairs room has renters it's not as quiet and private. When both parties are eating dinner on lanai voices carry. Thankfully this only happened 1 out of 5 nights. Nancy and Greg are very gracious and helpful hosts. We would definitely recommend to others and would return here on future vacations.

Better than the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days at this location on the Big Island and could hardly wait to get back to our Bamboo Hideaway lanai before sunset each evening. It is in a perfect location for exploring, snorkeling, coffee farms, and a trip or two in to Kona as needed. Or just kick back and enjoy the view and tropical quiet all day. We never slept so well. The ocean view and greenery surrounding the unit were awesome. Everything we might need for cooking was provided, towels, BBQ grill, linens, snorkel and beach gear (chairs, umbrella, cooler) and a laundry room! We loved everything about this property. Thanks Greg and Nancy for sharing your little corner of paradise.

Loved the view!

  • 5 of 5

The location is where we like and the view can't be beat. The driveway like many in the area is steep and tight but it brings you to a nice oasis of lush plants and flowers. The lower bamboo hideaway is quiet and the nature abundant. You are close to the nearby market and plenty of places to eat and see. If we come back again we would definitely ask about staying here again.
