Tropical Hideaway is perfect for anyone who loves nature. We loved the screened-in style studio because we could enjoy the warm Hawaiian air 24 hours a day. The hot tub, outdoor shower, and freshly-picked fruit were nice assets. Kathleen was kind and generous and a great local re…

We had a great stay at the Tropical Hideaway. Very cozy and private spot surrounded by nature. Also very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy the beaches, snorkeling, etc. Kathleen was a great host - available if there were any issues (which there weren't), but gave us ou…

The Hideaway was a gem. It's equipped with anything you might need and many thoughtful touches. It was a great spot from which to explore Big Island and just minutes away from fabulous snorkeling.

Kathy was an amazing, attentive host that gave us privacy, yet she was available if we needed anything. The space was incredible! Clean, bright, airy and cozy. Kathy lives above you, but she stays on the other side of her house as to not disturb you with footsteps above. The grou…

We were looking forward to a non-conventional rustic hideaway for a few days but we just couldn't get past the bug situation. The mosquitos were relentless so we couldn't use the outdoor patio area and we literally had to jog from the shower to the door to avoid getting bit. We…

Response from Kathleen:
Will, I am very sorry that you were not happy with your experience at Tropical Hideaway. Since I was away during your visit, I spoke with Ivy, the resident gardener, who greeted you and was there to make sure that your stay was enjoyable. She told you to let her know if anything needed attention, and when she checked in with you, you said that everything was fine. When I showed her your review, she mentioned that you hadn’t lit the citronella candles or the citronella torch, which would have helped dispel mosquitoes in the patio and shower area. September is usually our hottest and rainiest month, which means that there are more insects than usual. There is a black light mosquito zapper just above the patio, and we have traps on the property to reduce breeding of mosquitoes. Other guests have not had this problem, so maybe you both are what we call “mosquito attractors.” Using the citronella candles, the mosquito coils, the citronella torch and the fans would have helped a lot. The tropics has insects, and especially in a rural area filled with gardens and vegetation. Ivy and the cleaner both said that there were food crumbs all over and grease in the pans and on the dishes when you left. That will definitely attract insects, so keeping the place clean also would have reduced any insects inside.

We loved staying at the Tropical Hideaway, great location away from all the hustle and bustle but easily accessible to everything. Great beach near by and friendly hosts. The whole experience was very relaxing and we would 100% go back.

I've had a love affair with Hawaii since I first lived on Maui in the '60s. I am thrilled to be able to offer a vacation rental in the Captain Cook/Honaunau area, which is my favorite place to live. I love to swim every morning, often with dolphins. My passion is photography, and…
