Bedrooms Studio
Property type cottage

About the property

A place to come to for wonderful ocean views and privacy.

The privately located Sweethearts Hideaway is situated on the Hamakua Coast surrounded by 20 acres of rolling hills and farmland. The expansive ocean view boasts gorgeous sunrises and brightly reflects the beauty of the full moon. The country driveway takes you past crops that are flourishing in the fields and cattle graze in the distant pasture lands. The view seems to be endless.

This studio has a full kitchen with a Bosch gas range and full size refrigerator to meet your culinary

desires. There’s also a gas grill on the covered lanai for cooking out while you soak in the amazing views

and fresh country air. Satellite TV can be viewed from the cozy loveseat or queen sized bed to relax at the end of a fun filled day.

The indoor shower gives you the feel of being outside, as the colorful foliage of the landscaped yard is visible through the windows.

The fully fenced yard with fish pond has an abundance of tropical trees and flowering plants.

The cottage is minutes from botanical gardens, waterfalls and zip lines, not to mention the beautiful coast line and hiking. Centrally located between Hilo and the Waipio Valley.

If you enjoy peaceful seclusion with amazing views, then this is the place for you. We look forward to

having you as our guests. Aloha and hope to see you soon.

Dave and I had a great time at the Hideaway, the shower was fabulous and the pond was excellent. We loved the quietness, and the privacy and ease to get to Hilo and elsewhere. Everything was lovely. Thank you for the wonderful vacation.

Owner's Response: Staying in the country has many benefits, such as the privacy, peacefulness and a great ocean view, which we are very happy that you got to enjoy and experience. Staying at a resort is just too busy and doesn't give you the real feel of living in Hawaii along with no privacy to stroll around the property undisturbed. We're glad you enjoyed the pond as well, we noticed how there are more baby fish in the pond now. The shower is kind of fun with giving you the feeling of being outside but yet covered with the bamboo for privacy. Mahalo for staying at the Sweethearts Hideaway and we do hope you get to come back again some time. Aloha and Mahalo

We loved staying here and using the full kitchen to cook meals. We appreciated the remote location which offered peaceful surroundings and relaxation. The location is also close to attractions on the hamuka coast and Hilo.
