Ocean View Sweethearts Hideaway w/ full kitchen

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.

A beautiful and peaceful place to stay while exploring Hawaii!

We had a wonderful experience staying at Sweetheart's Hideaway! Extremely peaceful and quiet accommodations on Hawaii's eastern coast with nearby access to many sites and activities. Would highly recommend!

Lovely cottage with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Private Farm Cottage

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for privacy on the east side of the big island, look no further! We stayed at many places during our trip to Hawaii, and this one is up there with our favorites. This well-appointed cottage is not attached to a main home, which many rentals are - giving you a lot of privacy. It is equipped, but not fully (be sure to bring your own coffee and other cooking essentials). I'd suggest stopping at the store before you check-in as it is a bit of a hike up the hill to this super private oasis. Once you make the drive, you'll want to stay and enjoy the views under the covered lanai. As other reviews have noted, yes there is a gate (but please understand I imagine this is mainly to keep wild animals out and to remain secure - no big deal to us). And yes, you do have to follow a long drive around the property (but with privacy comes the trek - again, no big deal to us with our Jeep). You do have to go outside to enter the bathroom/laundry room, but it is well thought out and was part of the fun of living the island life. The tiny walk is covered/clean, it was no bother at all. There is a large window connecting the laundry area with the main living area making it feel like one space. We were provided soap for one load of laundry, but please note there is no dryer (there is a clothes line as well as a drying rack that we placed outside to let the breeze help dry our clothes). Internet/wi-fi worked great. Shower temp was a bit spotty/not the warmest (and yes, we know how to navigate these systems). This was one of the more expensive places we stayed, but mainly due to the cleaning rate. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it. Thank you for sharing your comfortable space with us!
