Our first time on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

This was an incredible spot for our first trip to Hawaii as it was away from the touristy spots yet still very close to everything we wanted to do. There is enough local stores in the immediate area that provided us with what we needed without having to drive the 10 miles or so into Kona.

The place is truly surrounded by tropical forest which gave you a sense of total privacy as they list on their info page. The patio with the chairs for relaxing/sunning along with the bbq grill was a definite plus as well.

As you can see I gave the place an excellent rating which it certainly deserved BUT the only caveat to my review would be something that is entirely out of the owners control which was the noises of the many animals that surround you all of the time especially at night and early in the AM. It was very enjoyable as you have to understand that you were in the jungle but the roosters starting their "squawking" pretty early in the morning and being a light sleeper I had to purchase a set of earplugs to be able to cut down on some of it.

Do NOT let this be a warning as to not to go but simply one to understand as the place is well worth the stay.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed our private “Enchanting Hideaway… this lush tropical Hideaway is for those who enjoy relaxing in their own private garden and soaking in their private hot tub and still have the convenience of beaches, stores and restaurants close by…it is true that there are a number of farm sounds in coffee farm land… they include chickens (none belong to us).. coqui frogs, geckoes , a neighboring cow in the distance and maybe even a turkey plus the other critters that live here , ants, roaches . Since your visit we have gotten a cage for catching the wild roasters and cats which like to come by … we do have our pet cat that makes the rounds and likes to visit the guests but he can be shooed off.. most guest miss their pets so they don’t mind him stopping by. We do have coqui frogs during the rainy season … (they chirp at night,, kind of sound like lots of birds chirping) some people don’t like the noise at first but then say they get use to these jungle sounds… and it even helps them to sleep… others use ear plugs if you feel this noise would make you unhappy then it would be best not to rent in the tropical areas but rather to rent a condo in the tourist area… . we have many happy return guests who feel the pluses outweigh (what some might consider negatives we do not hear the coqui frogs during the season.

Enchanted Hideaway Fondly Revisited

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently returned home after spending almost 3 full weeks on the Big Island in the Enchanted Hideaway. We first visited 2 years ago for 1 week and knew that we would have to return at some point. We just love it there. We feel that we get a taste of what it must be like to live in the community. The grounds are lovely and the little house is comfy, cozy; feels like home. It is in walking distance of some things and certainly in driving distance of anywhere you might want to visit. December mornings and evenings can get chilly, but the hot tub is there to warm you up and help you relax. There are geckos aplenty to entertain you and if you are lucky, you may get a visit from Lucky the cat. We met him 2 years ago and hoped we would be able to see him again. If it's privacy you want, you can get plenty of it. The grounds are lovely, bursting with colors and birds. Relaxation was a necessary component to our vacation, and the Enchanted Hideaway provided the opportunity to get plenty of it. We returned from Hawaii 2 years ago with a glowing report, and I am happy to say that this year was no different. Reggie is personable and if there is an issue (we needed a new coffee grinder), she is right on it. She is generous and helpful and contributes to making you as comfortable as possible. Another big plus, there is no dust! We love it and hopefully will be able to return in the future.

Our favorite Hawaiian place.

  • 5 of 5

We love the Enchanting Hideaway one bedroom cottage at Banana Patch. It is located on several acres at the edge of a collapsed lava tube valley, with lava rock stairs down into gardens filled with tropical plants and fruits. Banana Patch is in the small town of Kealakekua, at about 1000 ft. elevation, on the south Kona coast of the Big Island, Hawai'i. Nearby are historical sites, snorkeling, botanical gardens, as well as markets with local produce, fresh fish, Kona Coffee plantations, a quality performing Arts Theater & interesting restaurants. The cottage is away from bright lights with the nights dark enough to see brilliant stars while we enjoy the personal hot tub. The kitchen has full facilities for food preparation, including local Hawaiian foods, plus passion fruit, mango, papaya, and bananas that grow on the grounds. It's a quiet, very private tropical setting, a place to relax in a truly authentic Hawaiian area. We have visited Banana Patch many times and look forward to returning again soon to this sweet Hawaiian home.

Terrible place! I would give negative stars to the rental and owner if I could!

  • 1 of 5

It took us 18 hours to get to Kona by plane; we arrived at this unit around 9:15 PM. First thing we heard was LOUD frogs, later we found ear plugs. After entering we noticed the windows had only screen over them, so no A/C, just fans blowing hot, humid air around! The unit was like a screened in porch w/ scant walls that separated the LR, BR, K & B. The front door was screened with a lock so the items we brought were unsecure if we left. Two signs were on the gate that read KEEP OUT & NO TRESSPASSING! After unloading I spotted a gecko on the LR wall, then 2 more in the BR! OH NO I’m not staying here! Then I hear a cat that was peering through the LR screened window howling. The first 30 minutes of our vacation my husband was on unsuccessful gecko catching duty & running off a cat! Exploring outside he finds lots of large roaches on the patio, we would NOT enjoy the hot tub at night. After 45 minutes & drenched with sweat (it was 84° and 74% humidity) my husband was sold we would not stay, he called the owner letting her know we were leaving along w/ the reasons. It started pouring rain, so we waited 10-15 minutes for it to slow down, then left. The next AM my husband called the owner back, she stated she didn’t listen to our message until that AM (glad there wasn’t an emergency) & she chose not to call us back. During the call she tried to bully us into feeling guilty about leaving & requesting a refund. Her ad was totally deceptive & we were unaware of any of these issues. She stated she would refund our money if she could re-rent the unit. She sent an e-mail on 9/9/15 saying she would refund part of our fees. This was unacceptable as we were there only one hour & after our experience she changed her ad on VRBO to say no glass windows & no A/C. We felt like she now agreed that people should know the two amenities were absent. After telling her we were going to dispute the remaining payment with VISA she agreed to a full refund, texting my husband she “didn’t want a law suit or any other garbage” & other not so nice texts! So all of a sudden NO customer service either! The unit was cheap, I wish I could say we got what we paid for, but we would NOT have stayed even if it was FREE. I could go on with other issues, but this would turn into a novel. We have plenty of pictures, a video & PDF files of her ad as proof that we are glad to share. By far the worst first hour of vacation ever! I am happy to report we have received a full refund via our VISA card!

Owner's Response: I was both sad and sorry these guests had such a unfortunate experience .. we have worked hard for 20 years to have happy return guests. Unfortunately their arrival at 9:15 PM during one of the worst thunder / lighting storm we have ever had…did not set the stage for a good experience. I am sure it was scary for them. (it was scary for us) It is true the cottage does not have glass windows (only screens in the Kitchen and living room) the bathroom and bedroom have glass windows.. So yes this rental is totally the “Coffee Land Hideaway” that many are looking for BUT it is not for everyone. I have added this fact to our vrbo website (and am working to update our other advertising )that we do not have air conditionings and no glass in the windows.. So others will not be expecting these things. I have added it now because we truly want happy guests and for over 20 years we have catered to many return guests and those who send their friends. Not listing that we did not have air conditioning was never intended to be misleading or deceptive. We usually don’t think to list the things we don’t have. We though to list the things we have but now we will try to be more clear for those who do not know what to expect in a tropical hideaway. It is also true that tropical settings come with local critters (such as geckos, chickens, coqui frogs , roaches, ants , mice , mongoose just to list a few) you might even hear a turkey and cow in the distance. We do not like to use poison and the critters keep things in balance pretty well, but there will always be some of these critters… depending on the time of year. (they will be more or less) the geckoes eat the other bugs and they do not hurt you, they are outside and inside. We have loved sharing our tropical rentals for many years but they are not for everyone. I never want to mislead anyone, and if you have any questions feel free to please contact me before booking. Since we are never too old to listen to suggestions and make improvements we have added a safe where guests can keep small items secured and we have also added wire over the screens as additional security. We are in the process of designing a decorative layer to offer more security in the near future. We thank you Larry and Karen for this opportunity to better inform guests what we have and don’t have.. Also we are happy to make improvements which will work better for us and future guests. We have made a full refund to guests.

Our first BEST vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation together.We wanted the privacy and convenience of "feeling" right at home.The Enchanted Cottage was exactly that.When we arrived it was late at night.We opened the gate and the walkway was lit up to guide our way.It was absolutely breathtaking.The keys were in the door to our home away from home.The pictures although accurate do not do the place justice.The kitchen was just perfect for two and we enjoyed the visits from the gecko.We saved a lot of time and money with this feature.When we finished unpacking it was nice to relax in the hot tub that was already heated and ready for us.The location was perfect to everything we had planned. It was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy areas when we wanted to.We had days that we really just wanted to stay and enjoy our surroundings and BBQ and drink freshly blended drinks.We will definitely stay with them again.
