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

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!
This place was great. It rained a lot but it didn't matter because it was so cozy, so serene, with everything you could need to relax and enjoy the setting. Great location, easy to get to, but totally private. Every detail of the house, from the bed, to the furnishings, to free snorkeling gear, to to the well equipped kitchen was perfect. The hosts live near by and made themselves available for anything that might come up. I wish I was back there right now!
This is the greatest little place! We didn't spend a lot of time inside, nevertheless, this IS the place to stay! The amenities abound,, it's private, close to where we needed to be, reasonably priced, and overall., an immaculate little piece of heaven!
I feel completely rejuvenated after spending time in this enchanted rainforest. The outdoor shower is a must! Thank you Connie and Andrew, we had such a memorable time!!!
Remote, private, tastefully decorated. I would highly recommend and hope to return some day. Conveniently located.
Connie and Andrew were great. We now have new friends! The place was perfect! Quiet, private and a total tropical forest experience. WE WILL BE BACK!
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.
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.
