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.

Just as advertised.

We enjoyed getting away from the busyness of the tourist areas, hotels, etc. The noises from the frogs was actually a treat for us. We stayed a week and would do it again. Thank you.

Nice private place. Very comfortable with amenities provided. Took advantage of nude sunbathing. Someone came while we were out and removed a chair from the lanai. We reported it to Reggie but never heard back as to what happened.

Fun, quiet, funky little bungalow down a narrow road to coffee farms. We loved being away from the sterility of Alii Drive (and appreciated how easy it was to get to Kailua Kona 😊򒠩 Also enjoyed using cottage as base for the rest of the island. Highly recommended for the laid back traveller!

The house overall is fine. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of pots and pans, the knives are sharp. The bed is good. The shower is great. The outside is great. You are in the middle of a jungle, lots of plants and large ferns. The paved patio and paths are impressive. We liked the location, being south of Kona town. You get more rain here during certain times of the year. It usually rained at night so no big deal. It is a narrow one lane road, if you meet someone coming in or out, someone has to find a place to pull over. If you are good at it, I suggest that you back into the driveway to make it easier to see when you leave. It is a bit of a blind curve in the road when you leave, it is hard to see if anybody is coming. Ok, so now comes the shortfalls. There is a large beam dividing the "bedroom" from the rest of the house that is about 5'10" measured from the floor to the bottom of the beam. I am 6'2" but obviously I can duck to avoid running into it. The problem for me was that I slept on that side of the bed. So, if I got up and stood up I would bang my head on the bottom of the beam. Only took a couple of times doing that to learn not to stand all the way up before taking a couple of steps out. (Logically, we could have changed which side of the bed I slept on, but apparently that sort of thing is etched in stone). So, no big deal, except one morning at 530am, the smoke alarm went off. I assume it is a smoke alarm, the thing doesn't look like any smoke alarm I have ever seen. But it is very loud and when one is awoken by a loud alarm you tend to panic, jump out of bed and stand up. BONK! I drive my head into the bottom of that beam with great force. By the way, no smoke, everything was fine and it never went off again. Just beware of the beam if you are tall. The BBQ: it is a Webber charcoal grill. I prefer propane, but I can deal with charcoal. However, I open it up and the top grill is all rusty. I don't know the dangers, if any, cooking on rust, but it is not appealing to me. We went to ACE Hardware and a replacement was $15. I bought a smaller rack for $10 to put on top of the rusty one to cook our dinners and it would fit in my suitcase so I could bring it home. Note to owners: go buy a new rack. There is a medium sized ice chest. I open it up and it was dirty and moldy inside. I had to clean it before we could use it. I don't know who preps the house for the next guests but they need to do better. I seem to be out of space.

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.
