Tropical Hideaway is a charming Hawaii-style studio apartment in a lush garden setting, with ocean views, a chemical-free salt water swimming pool with waterfall, and private hot tub. Tropical Hideaway is just three minutes away from fabulous snorkeling, kayaking, diving and dolphin experiences at Honaunau (Two Step), and close to Kealakekua Bay & Ho'okena Bay.
The beautifully landscaped garden is filled with mango, papaya, banana, avocado and other fruit trees and flowers. Relax in the back to nature environment or explore the island by day and return to your cozy retreat by night. See the awesome beauty of Hawaii's active volcano, visit stunning beaches, or the cowboy country of Waimea--all within a 1.5 hour drive.
Tropical Hideaway is located on the west side of the 'Big Island' of Hawaii about 20 miles south of the town of Kailua-Kona, 1 mile off the main island highway near the 'Painted Church,' and 2 miles from the 'Place of Refuge' National Park at Honaunau.
For a unique and affordable Hawaii-style vacation rental, come to Tropical Hideaway, imbued with the sweet scent of plumeria, ginger, and angels' trumpet.

Come experience the beauty and diversity of the Big Island with us for a tropical island vacation that is truly memorable.
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.
This wonderful location is three minutes from the best snorkeling on the island, with wild dolphins and turtles as well. It is in a lush, tropical area, filled with fruit trees and gardens--private, quiet and rural, yet within easy driving distance of a variety of cultural sites and natural wonders.
Tropical Hideaway has a focus on being green, so we have solar panels, solar hot water (electric backup), recycling and composting.
