  • Cozy Ohana, kind hosts made it a most memorable experience!

    "New to the Big Island, our stay in this studio truly exceeded our expectations!! Heath and his wife are generous and thoughtful. They provided us the privacy and space we needed, but were always available if we had any questions. They offered a wealth of information, helpful to us as a family in transition of moving here. Their beautiful property and charming Ohana is well equipped with amenities. It has all the comforts of "home" after a full day's adventures. Located in the safe and tranquil subdivision of Leilani Estates, we enjoyed walks to the community park and a short drive to the the local public pool. There's a nice BBQ on the private lanai where we grilled out several evenings. Denise offered us beach toys, floaties, and life vests for our young children and recommended Okenehakeha (which is now one of our favorite spots!). And...ummm, the delicious sweet papayas from their trees! We loved having our windows opened nightly and falling asleep to the sounds of the coqui. THANK YOU Heath and Denise for your kindness. We appreciate you welcoming us not only into your home as guests, but also in your lives as friends! We're happy to have met your adorable children and sweet family! We will MOST DEFINITELY recommend friends and family to stay with you!! Warmest Mahalo, Trinh & Eugene Bass (and the twins!)"

  • Very nice vacation home, ideally located in a quieted neighorhood.

    "We really enjoyed our week at this very nice "vacation home". The home was well equipped and very clean. The sounds of nature,birds, frogs, crickets and roosters, we found quite soothing and relaxing. The water is without a doubt the BEST,so soft it it is phenomenal! This location is central to areas on the east side of the island, minutes to Hilo, Volcano Park and the south shore. We will be telling our friends about this place if they planning a trip to the Big Island Greg & Sandra Jan 2016"

  • Romantic getaway

    "The Bali Temple felt like and was a luxurious getaway. Beautiful view of the ocean across the lava fields from the palatial four poster bed, nice bathroom with fluffy towels and jacuzzi, comfortable sitting and dining areas, and well equipped kitchen. Thoughtfully decorated and stocked without feeling awkwardly lived in, it was a wonderful spot for our last 3 days on The Big Island, from which we explored Puna, Volcano, & Hilo. Hilo Bay Cafe was delicious but make sure to get an outdoor table. Loved the Ahalanui thermal pool in the evening, snorkeling at Kapoho tide pools, and walking to Uncle Robert's Market. Be here for that on Wednesday night! It was a highlight of our trip. Had hoped to see the flowing lava nearby too but it was not a 30-45 min walk from the parking area as the guards told us, but more like a couple hrs. After about 4 miles w/o appropriate sun cover or hydration, we turned back. After nightfall would be better than early morning but expect a significant hike in the dark. We loved the Bali Temple and would love to return someday to do things we didn't get to do in the area like the lava tree park, Champagne pond, hit the galleries and shops in Hilo, the botanic gardens and waterfalls north of Hilo, the black sand beach nearby, and return to Uncle Robert's."

  • Relaxing Hawaiian Retreat

    "My husband and I stayed here for 1 week as part of our 10 year anniversary trip. We wanted a place that would serve as a good base for us to explore everything from the green sand beach down south to the Waipio Valley up north. We also wanted something less than 30 minutes to Volcano NP as we knew we would spend 2-3 days there. As a bonus, we were hoping for a place that would feel relaxing and like a retreat at the end of a long day of hiking and exploring. The Hawaiian Hideaway definitely fit the bill and exceeded expectations in all of the characteristics we were seeking. First of all, the Hideaway is very clean! The owner gives guidelines to decrease the risk of bugs, and it's working. We did not see a single insect or bug inside of the Hideaway the entire time we were there. The cleaning service also does a phenomenal job, very thorough. The bed was comfortable and I loved falling asleep to the chirping of the frogs and awaking to the sound of the birds. What we enjoyed the most was the large screened in lanai. When we were there, we spent most of our waking hours on the lanai. Linda is extremely kind and a delight to talk to on the phone. I'm not usually one to reach out and talk to the owners, but in this case I did a couple of times and she is so incredibly sweet and nice to talk to, and she gave great recommendations. By the end of our stay, we were calling the Hawaiian Hideway "home." If my husband and I ever return to the big island we will definitely stay at the Hawaiian Hideaway again."
