Overview

Honaunau Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Tropical Gardens, Pool, & Hot Tub, Make This The Perfect Island Getaway!

Nestled within a stand of lush tropical plants, this unique cottage offers a delightful indoor/outdoor living experience – 3 of 4 walls are screened, opening the studio to the sensual tropical air that is such a wonderful part of Hawai'ian living.

Outside, a covered lana'i and outdoor shower (great after a trip to nearby Ho'okena Beach), are bordered by a bamboo grove and banana trees. A pool and hot tub are all steps away, as are mangoes, avocados and papayas.

Inside is furnished with rattan furniture, a dreamy queen-sized bed, and plenty of space for relaxing. The kitchen is compact and complete – featuring a dishwasher, microwave, 4-burner gas cook top, and convection/toaster oven. Custom-built bamboo cabinetry ties everything together in unmistakable island style.

We loved designing, building and living in our little cottage. It gives us great pleasure to share this love with like-minded guests who are seeking something more authentic than your typical 'condo experience'.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • not suitable for children
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Hope & Rennie Innis

We are freshly retired and love the idea of having this wonderful island getaway to share with people.

Rennie is a software developer, and Hope is a property manager.

We love to travel, especially when warm water is involved! Although we have traveled many places, this is our favorite place to enjoy rest and relaxation.

Hope & Rennie Innis purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Hope & Rennie Innis chose Honaunau

The first time we arrived here, we thought this was the perfect place to spend our island vacation. Being so close to great snorkeling, beaches and close enough to Kona for a night out, we loved this getaway cottage so much that we returned a year later to purchase it.

What makes this cottage unique

Being in a beautiful tropical garden, with the pool, hot tub and gorgeous view of the ocean and mountain volcano, this place is sublime.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite place that we stayed on the Big Island. Idyllic, peaceful, and romantic. The pool and surrounding gardens are lovely and the property and pavillion are as described and pictured. We arrived late at night, but with the directions provided managed to find the Getaway without difficulty. We had absolute privacy even though neighbours are close-by. The owners and caretaker were very responsive. The location is minutes away from great sites, good food and some of the best snorkeling on the island. Stayed for 5 nights and wished it was longer - next time it will be!

Nicest Place I've stayed in a long time.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have used VRBO numerous times in many, many places, but the Island Hideaway has got to be one of the nicest and most unique places we've stayed in. Airy, bright and peaceful barely describe the cottage. You feel as if you are living outside without sacrificing any creature comfort. The setting is beautiful, very romantic. The pool and hot tub are wonderful and privacy is total. We were there a week and sad that it wasn't two. Great location as well. Very close to several nice beaches and shopping is 15 minutes away. Don't cheat yourself and stay in a bland, cookie-cutter condo or hotel. The Hideaway is so unique, comfortable and practical. I would love to go back next year!

Owner's Response: Hi John, we're pleased that you enjoyed our cottage (and the privacy!) so much. By the way, the title is Island Getaway, as opposed to Island Hideaway. Hope to have you back again someday. Aloha, Rennie & Hope

A spot in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property is just as described. The owners were very prompt in answering questions and arranging a welcome. The caretakers gave us a good orientation and were quite thorough. It is a very private space despite the nearness of neighbors. The cottage is artfully appointed and has everything we needed. We enjoyed the outdoorsy feel from the screened walls and the outdoor bathroom and shower. The split level design of the building gives a feeling of large space in a small area. Nice to have all the beach gear we needed and more. Wonderful snorkeling and sights close by. Coffee shop is good - we mostly cooked for ourselves. It truly felt like our own vacation place.

Very functional and utterly charming space

  • 5 of 5

My first visit to the Big Island, so wasn't sure what to expect. But the setup was pretty much as described - very clean, nicely laid out, with a focus on comfort and efficiency. It was a trip having the shower and toilet outside, but the way the lanai was set up with a roof, it felt like a wall-less extension to the cottage. The pool was amazing - 10 feet deep and no chlorine! And the lushness of the gardens and area around was wonderful. If the owners ever want to upgrade, I'd vote for a ceiling fan; the fan available was usually sufficient at bedtime, but not so much during the day.

It's a great home base for seeing the island - so be sure to have a car. The beach (Place of Refuge and Two Step) is 2.5 miles away; so close, but not really a manageable walk given the steep and fairly busy street and no sidewalks. Wonderful coffee/diner just a mile away at the junction of Hwy 11 and 160; the Choice Market was around 10 miles away, but the selection was great. Painted Church is right around the corner and the Peace Gardens just a little further up the road. So lots to do in this area, without going far at all.

This is really tropical, so come prepared for heat, humidity, mosquitos, noisy frogs and roosters. If any of these will be problematic for you, then stay at an resort with air conditioning. Otherwise, come enjoy nature!

Unique hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

3 sides of vacation home are screened and you are surrounded by beautiful tropical foliage. It is extremely private. Furnishings are comfortable and bed is awesome. Kitchen well appointed. A beautiful pool and hot tub area with ocean views. Close to excellant snorkeling. Outside shower was private and a nice change from what you are used to. For those of us who do not enjoy a resort stay, this is the place for you.

My favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful place a couple of weeks ago and loved it! It's charming, beautifully set-up and decorated, open and incredibly romantic. It's very open to the outdoors so it's easy to hear all the critters and the rain. The back lanai where the shower is located is fabulous. There's delicious fruit available that grows right on the property. We didn't want to leave and will come back as often as possible.

This unique cottage is located on the south Kona coast, just minutes from the best snorkeling in the Hawai'ian islands.

You will also be in the famed Kona coffee region, where some of the best coffee in world is grown. You can sample this coffee, or take an informative tour, at nearby roasters.

Not to be missed is the Volcano's National Park, 1 1/2 hours drive from this location. Watch the earth being formed before your eyes when you visit the Kilauea crater.

One of the State of Hawai'i's two National Historic Parks is the 'City of Refuge', located 2 minutes, or 1.6 miles from the cottage. This historic and restored ruins will give you a sense of the island's fascinating history, and is adjacent to enticing 'Two Step' snorkeling. There is also a nice white sand beach about 15 minutes south of our cottage!

There is a small coffee shop/cafe one mile up the road in Honaunau that serves fresh local Kona coffee, homemade goodies, and breakfast and lunch.

The amazing Fruit Stand is just a bit further south and has fruits that you will have never even heard of!

Painted Church is a well-known attraction. It is a 10 minute walk from the cottage, and is a simple wooden structure whose hand-painted interior decor was meant to replicate the glory of the cathedrals. Catholic services are held and are posted. You will be welcome.
