Hillside Hideaway is a 2 family vacation rental home on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Each apartment has 2-bedrooms and are available separately or together. The Hideaway is an ideal location for vacationers looking for a fully-equipped home and a quiet, laid-back residential experience.
Scenic and serene, the surrounding area of Round Top/Tantalus is lush and green, with a winding mountain road, clean, fresh air and gorgeous sunsets. Several hiking trails are easily accessible via a short drive up the hill. A 7-mile stretch of Tantalus/Round Top Drive has even been added to the National Register of Historic Places. During your stay here, you might even catch a glimpse of the beautiful green parrots we occasionally see flying around!
Hillside Hideaway is a two-bedroom home with peekaboo views of Honolulu and the Pacific Ocean from the living area and master bedroom. The house sleeps 6 (two queen-size beds and one queen sleeper sofa). The living area and master bedroom are air-conditioned and have ceiling fans; the second bedroom has a ceiling fan and a table fan.
The full kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator/freezer, oven, stove, microwave, coffee maker, tea pot, toaster, blender, dishes, glassware, utensils, a spice rack, and all the kitchen tools you need. We provide a 1-day supply of coffee, sugar, sweetener and creamer to get you started in case you arrive late and don’t get a chance to stop at the grocery store.
The living room and both bedrooms have flat-screen tvs; the living room also has a stereo, cd player and dvd player. You’ll also find playing cards, kids’ card games, and a couple of stacks of books for beach reads and rainy days.
The property has a hot tub that’s shared with the property managers. It’s underneath a gazebo so you can even use it in the rain! Outside you’ll also find a patio table and seating for 6, a washer and dryer with laundry detergent, and covered parking for one vehicle. We also provide beach towels and 2 beach chairs for your seaside excursions.

Our family enjoyed the stay at this home. It's close to everything we wanted to travel to.
I would stay here again when we travel to Oahu.
We especially loved the hot tub.
We rented this property for a couple of nights, with a departure on New Year's Day. It is a nice place that matches the description and has a good location, just up a winding road that looks over Honolulu. My issue with this trip was that I had asked the property manager for a late check out, because 10am on January 1st isn't most people's best moment of the year. He could give us an extra hour, which would be fine. Except, there was a cleaner there when we arrived at 7pm on the 30th. She left the place spotless and smelling of chemical cleaners...not really the scent you'd expect when you arrive for your Hawaiian vacation. I hadn't told the property manager when we were arriving and find it to be poor planing that there was still someone cleaning after dark. To then ask us to make sure we get out of there in a timely manner on a holiday, definitely didn't sit well with me or any of my traveling companions.
Good place to stay with a large group. Kitchen had everything we needed to make desired meals. Nice beds - good sunny yard. Host was very good to deal with.
Rented hideaway 1 and 2. Very comfortable and very clean. Convenent for enjoying the night life and beaches of Honolulu .. perfect for BBQ and just enjoying family time.. best vacation in a while didn't worry about anything and just enjoyed cooking and having a wonderful experience..
We had a great time overall- our group of 8 rented both Hillside Hideaway 1 and 2 (2 apartments, each with 2 rooms). A small common hallway connects the two apartments (each with its own locking door).
The location was up a windy hill, not too far from the Tantalus Lookout (which is definitely worth visiting). Easy access to the H1 highway, and therefore everything we wanted to see was within easy reach. It was also within 10 minutes of the Ala Moana mall and surrounding retail (like Walmart).
The good: Hillside hideaway 1 was definitely more bright and spacious. We used that living room as the general family hang-out area. There were surprisingly nice features including a really powerful microwave and a pantry that had all the tools we needed to self cater a bunch of our meals (we saved a lot of money buying stuff at Costco and eating at home). Strong wifi, nice linens, ample towels, fun hot tub, peaceful and quiet location, and a washer/ dryer (very handy).
Not as good (but not dealbreakers)... the driveway is pretty steep and tight. We had two vehicles and had to be careful maneuvering. But each car had a nice covered space. Air conditioning was not available in all of the rooms... including one of the bedrooms in Hillside Hideaway 1, and the living room and one of the bedrooms in Hillside Hideaway 2. It could get a bit stuffy (we went in September, which maybe was on the warmer side). We tried to use fans to blow cold air over but it was still warm. Also, the beds were a little soft for us (though maybe some people like that). Hillside Hideaway 2 is also a bit dark.
We had a very nice family stay-- good value place!
This is a really beautiful and comfortable place. Had the great opportunity to rent both units and really loved them both. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars was the lack of any soap. Sounds petty I know but simply having been told in advance to bring that would have made a really long travel day easier. It is no big deal to have to supply our own and we would not have minded, just would have been nice to know to expect this so we could have been prepared.
Other than this one tiny thing, the place was amazing! Well furnished, extremely comfortable and really clean.
