Fun loving couple, semi retired from the entertainment business, now living in the jungles of east Hawaii. World travelers, we spend most our days organic farming and building our rammed earth house. We live up the road from the Rainforest Hideaway on a separate property. Our friendly and well behaved dogs, Jackson and Frankie, often join us to greet our guests upon arrival. Andrew, originally from Australia, designs and builds custom homes and is a FEO Officer and tanker driver for the local Volunteer Fire Department. Connie is a wardrobe stylist and yoga instructor at a local yoga center.

Connie and Andrew purchased this cabin in 2008

The Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway is a unique and very private property. Located in a rare old growth jungle/rainforest area of Puna with many native and exotic plants and trees, yet still just a mile from the highway, 200 ft. off a paved road. (unpaved road is maintained and fine for rental cars) The perfect location to get away from it all but still be close enough to all the sights, restaurants and activites. Many other places you share the house or property with others. This is 2 acres all to yourself, beautifully landscaped with many extra touches to make your stay more relaxing and enjoyable.

Hawaii Island, aka the Big Island, was ranked number 7 as the World's Best Island destinations in Travel and Leisure magazine, Winter 2012. Come explore one of the planets' most beautiful islands for yourself.

My wife and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon; every single aspect was perfect! The property is absolutely beautiful with wonderful details in the décor throughout. Connie and Andrew were extremely accommodating and easy to work with and we are SO happy we stayed here -just wish it was for a little longer!

Property is close to Hilo, Volcanos National Park and lots of beaches. Connie and Andrew have a number of different guide books and other amenities to help make your stay more enjoyable. We look forward to coming back!

We loved staying here, it is by far the cleanest rental we have stayed at and it was so peaceful. We would definitely stay here and again and would highly recommend it to anyone. We both loved falling asleep to the sound of the frogs, taking outdoor showers, having full amenities, plus the added convenience to all the hilo side has to offer. It was just perfect for us. Thanks again!

Beautiful Hawaii in a Very Magical Way

  • 5 of 5

This was a very new way to experience Hawaii - this magical little house in the middle of the rainforest.
Imagine, you are sitting in your living room and still have the full camping experience (without the bugs) - here it is possible, because there are no glass windows just fly-screens. I can get quite loud though with the coqui frogs, but for us that just added to the whole jungle feel.
The house is well equipped, and individually decorated. It's a special place that reflects the love and care the owners invested in it - thanks again Connie and Andrew! The shower in the garden is a great place to start the day of wash off the dust and sweat of a long day.
The location is great for exploring this side of the island: You can explore Puna, north of Hilo, Vulcano and the National Park - it's all within one hour drive.
We can recommand the place wholeheartedly!

Owner's Response: Thank you for you kind review. We really enjoyed meeting you and your family and getting to know you, even tho it ws short. I must make 1 small correction tho. The bedroom does have glass windows and a locking door for security and temperature control. The rest of the house is screened for the full rainforest experience.

We are located close to Volcanoes National Park and Kalapana where the active lava flows down the volcano and meets the ocean. This is one of the world's most active volcanoes and viewing is quite easy and accessable. The park is other worldly and the flows are fantastic. You can view by helicopter, boat, car or my favorite, on foot. Local guides available and recommended. Not to be missed, a real bucket list experience.
