After inquiring about the 1 bedroom house it became booked so we ended up in the 2 bedroom. We have never stayed in a place with so many nice touches. Large beach towels, sunblock, bug spray, all the little things like flowers, chocolate macadamia nuts, etc. We spent our first full day down on the property's beach & only saw 5 people. I really enjoyed the stairs & trail down to the beach. Amazing views & a fun experience. The Kilauea Bakery was a favorite place to grab breakfast or an afternoon treat. We hit up the Kalalau Trail and recommend getting there as the sun is coming up (a) so you get a parking spot and (b) the sun hitting the mountain that time of day is so beautiful. We had to move to the south shore half-way through the week & what a difference. In fact, we drove back up to the North Shore after only 1 day down there b/c we just loved the North Shore so much. The south shore seemed a bit warmer & better whale spotting but definitely more touristy & crowded. As for our Hideaway House experience we would recommend it to everyone. For most people it may be a bit of a splurge as there are less expensive places to stay. However, it is worth it. The property is so pretty, any of the staff people we saw were extremely nice & honestly one of the best views of the island. Thank you for letting us stay & we hope to be back soon!!
