About Connie and Andrew

Fun loving couple, semi retired from the entertainment business, now living in the jungles of east Hawaii. World travelers, we spend most our days organic farming and building our rammed earth house. We live up the road from the Rainforest Hideaway on a separate property. Our friendly and well behaved dogs, Jackson and Frankie, often join us to greet our guests upon arrival. Andrew, originally from Australia, designs and builds custom homes and is a FEO Officer and tanker driver for the local Volunteer Fire Department. Connie is a wardrobe stylist and yoga instructor at a local yoga center.

Connie and Andrew purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Connie and Andrew chose Hawaii

The Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway is a unique and very private property. Located in a rare old growth jungle/rainforest area of Puna with many native and exotic plants and trees, yet still just a mile from the highway, 200 ft. off a paved road. (unpaved road is maintained and fine for rental cars) The perfect location to get away from it all but still be close enough to all the sights, restaurants and activites. Many other places you share the house or property with others, but not here. This is 2 acres all to yourself, beautifully landscaped with many extra touches to make your stay more relaxing and enjoyable.

What makes this cabin unique

Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway has been awarded 2014 Certificate of Excellence for consistently earning top ratings from our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The rainforest hideaway was everything I wanted and then some! Andrew and Connie greeted me and made sure I had everything I needed before leaving me to total privacy. I loved the outdoor shower but couldn't resist the claw foot a few times. Four weeks in the Hideaway was four weeks in paradise! Thanks Condrew! Five stars from this happy guest!

Tasteful, comfortable, and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten days here, and it felt like home. The decor is tasteful, the space is clean, and the property is well-maintained. The living room is more like a screened porch, which makes it a perfect place for relaxing. The claw toothed bathtub became a favorite spot of mine. Also very relaxing. The kitchen had everything I would want and more. The description was totally accurate (there really are mosquitoes, but our hosts provided both spray and salve). Proximity to the Hilo and Keaau farmers markets made cooking really fun. The location is great -- we went into Hilo often but went to Volcano National Park even more frequently. We hiked along the Saddle Road, also incredibly convenient. Our hosts were accommodating, warm and friendly. We had a great stay.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my first 3 nights on the Big Island at this very conveniently located property. Even when you are inside you feel like you are outside which is wonderful. Bed was very comfortable and everything you need is provided. Car port is very handy for loading and unloading. Connie and Andrew are wonderful hosts and took time to share some of the botanical background on the very well managed gardens which surround the house. The morning birds will make it hard to want to go touring anywhere! Highly Recommended!

We are located close to Volcanoes National Park and Kalapana where the active lava flows down the volcano and meets the ocean. This is one of the world's most active volcanoes and viewing is quite easy and accessable. The park is other worldly and the flows are fantastic. You can view by helicopter, boat, car or my favorite, on foot. Local guides available and recommended. Not to be missed, a real bucket list experience.
