8 Nights in Paradise
I stayed at the Tree House Hideaway for 8 nights and LOVED it!! I was here solo away from family and friends looking for peace and quite. This place is in the perfect location between Kona and Captain Cook. I spent my days at the beach, snorkeling and exploring the area. A few of the days I just stayed in, why go anywhere else, the place was perfect. Reggie was wonderful to work with and I felt totally safe knowing she was close by if something came up out of the ordinary. I made friends with the little gecko family and the 3 little baby geckos (only about an inch long). Every morning and evening they would greet me in hopes I would give them some sweets like papaya, star fruit or rambutan from the farmers market. The hot tub was a bonus after a day at the beach. The pictures do not do this place justice. The evening sunsets are amazing, wild orchids blooming on the stairs up and bananas growing right behind the hot tub. I only wish they were ripe enough to pick. I'm jealous of the next people who get to stay there. I can't wait to enjoy this little place of heaven again, this time with my husband.
A few things to consider:
Ants; no big deal. Keep food in the fridge and honey, jams, and other sweets just place in a shallow dish with a little water. The ants won't go through the water to get to your stuff. I did this and it completely eliminated all ants.
Geckos; don't feed them. They will bring their whole family with them chirping, fighting and make a ruckus. You won't be able to get rid of them.
This property has EVERYTHING you need, Fully stocked kitchen. I shopped the local farmers market and cooked for every meal. There wasn't anything I couldn't cook. The Wednesday and Saturday market in Keauhou is awesome. Also there is a market really close by. I saved a ton of money not going into town eating out. However I did indulge at Sandy's Drive Inn and the local coffee grower stands along the highway.
This is not condo or resort living: Privacy, security, close to everything and far from it all. Paradise Perfect!
Owner's Response: Aloha Annie,
Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely and informative review.
We love providing our guests with a home away from home. Our Great Affordable rental features all you will need for a comfortable stay.
Quite, central, convenient location. Within easy access to best beaches, shopping and tourist attractions. The fully equipped Kitchen makes it easy to prepare your favorite meals and beverage.
Some new visitors are not familiar with the little local critters we have here on our lovely Island. Ants and Geckos are not a problem when people know how to avoid, (unknowingly) encouraging them.
Thank you for pointing out how easily ants are discouraged by keeping food in refrigerator and covered well when left on counter.
Gecko are interesting to watch outside in the trees but they will get to be a nuisance if they are feed inside. As tempting as it may be at first to watch these little critters enjoy tasting your papaya ,,, they will bring in others and it will not be fun to watch them fight. ?
So enjoy watching them but best not to feed them.
