The HideAway provides a full kitchen, king-sized bed, jetted bath-tub, dish network and high-speed internet, all with an 'Oh Wow' view in a very nice 440' studio next to two 100 year old mango trees with excellent access to both the Hilo and Kona destination sites.
I've retired after 42 years of teaching public high school in the nearby town of Honoka'a. I now spend my time on restoring a '57 Corvette, planting taro and a garden in 100 yr. old taro patches, maintaining the 3200' house that I built, myself, and enjoying the beauty and inspiration of this amazing place.
When first purchased, this property had no driveway, a 100 yr old house with kerosene stove, lamps, an outhouse and minimal view. Look at the pictures and you'll get an idea of all that was done here, mostly by a teacher on vacations with minimal income.
I've run the Hideaway for over 13 years now, and have guest books full of great comments on how much it was enjoyed, how it inspired, how convenient it is to access other spots on this beautiful island, etc. Many local visitors getting away from Kona, and recently a 14 month stay by a bridge inspector keep me busy. It's a great place to share!!!
