The Hamakua Hideaway Cliff House radiates charm and warmth. It is very restful and romantic. The spectacular views can be seen from every room. There is ultimate privacy. You probably won't see or hear another person. Instead, you will see flowers everywhere, birds, geckos and the magnificent Waipio cliffs with waterfalls. You will hear the rushing water of the stream below and the gentle trade wind breezes passing through the bamboo.
The oceanfront bungalow is cozy with a full kitchen, king-size bed, fireplace and a jacuzzi bath tub in a screened lanai, overlooking the awesome view. There is an upstairs loft with an extra bed that can be made upon request. Free Wifi highspeed internet connection is available in the cabin.
We take pride in providing organic cotton sheets on all of our beds. We use no toxic cleaning products and we use natural farming methods in the large garden area. We are growing many exotic fruit trees and culinary/medicinal herbs.
And, if you like hiking, we are within minutes of walking to the Waipio Valley, which is a fantastic hiking experience.

Quotes from our in-house diary:
'Outstanding. Priceless. Peaceful. Relaxing. Delightful. Awesome. Fragrant. In no particular order... A real gem. Mahalo!'
Ruth and Allen -- Juneau, Alaska
'One of, if not the most, magical places we've ever been to. Everything from the cliffs to the sunset has been absolutely perfect. So glad we found this place. It reflects love and good spirit from every detail, every corner. Thank you so much for sharing this piece of paradise!'
Tim and Inca -- PA and Germany
'Thank God for this place, creation at its most serene. And thank you, Kristan,for sharing your home with so many of us. Not only would we return here again, we'd live here. Certainly we both take potent changes back with us to our home so far away.
I especially loved to capture the beauty here in my photography - framing Waipio cliffs amongst the incredible flowers of your garden. My husband most loved the isolation, a place for him to recharge his batteries, to sort life's problems out, and to make plans for the future. Truly a thought provoking environment.
Tim and Linda -- Scotch Plains, New Jersey
'What a beautiful, serene spot! We saw whale spouts and rainbows while just sitting on the lanai. This was exactly the vacation we needed. We loved coming back here at the end of every day and some days, we just never left! Thanks for sharing this very magical place with us.'
Cynthis and Heather -- Culver City, CA
'I'd like to write a few pages describing all the reasons that the Hamakua Hideaway is the absolute best place we've ever stayed, but my husband summed it up best - UTTER PERFECTION! Mahalo! We'll be back.'
Cara and Stephen -- Victoria, BC
'Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful stay here at your Hideaway! The view is one of the most beautiful we've ever seen and the house has such unique character. We love the special touches - the pretty soft sheets, freah flowers, candles, landscaping, etc. We found ourselves on a circuitous route thru the house from the bed, to the Jacuzzi, to the massage table, (in-room massage from Rene Romano!)to the kitchen for food/drink, to the neat stone shower...and then back to be! What a rough day!'
Hilary and Wes -- Salem, VA
'Everything we dreamed it would be and more. We can honestly say this has been the best and most relaxing trip we have ever taken.'
Jim and Heidi -- Spring Hill, Kansas
'We have had an amazing few days here! My husband and I had planned to use this Hideaway as a starting point to explore the North of the island, but once we were here, we could barely tear ourseleves away! We spent most of our time enjoying this beautiful house. Your front porch was our big screen TV - we don't know how many hours we spent watching the light change on the cliffs. This has been the end of our honeymoon and we feel so rested and refreshed. Thanks for the beautiful and thoughtful little home.'
Alison and Andrew -- Hong Kong
'I sit here on the lanai, writing this as a rainbow arches over the lighted coast of Waipio Valley. This pretty much defines my experience here. Dawn and I loved this place. It feels like old Hawaii, back to nature and a connection to God. All the amenities were here, yet it felt like we were camping under the stars and surrounded by jungle. The Hideaway is certainly the most unique and pleasurable rental or B&B (and we've been to hundreds of them in our lifetime!) we have ever stayed in. Thank you (mahalo) for lending this experience to us. It's hard to leave.'
David and Dawn -- Cincinnati, OH
