Perfect hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Elliot was a very gracious and acomadating host. I speant so much time admireing the beautiful craftsmanship and decor that I didn't even notice the absence of a telivision. Honestly, putting a tv in this space would be a mistake. It was perfectly quirky and very comfortable. And don't get me started on the detached bath house. We went all around the island for two weeks and this was my fovorite spot of all.

Great Island Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot if you want to enjoy a tropical paradise. The outdoor shower is my favorite thing. My wife and I spent 10 days in the house and it's just wonderful. The decor is perfect with buddha's looking our everywhere. The kitchen and facilities are great. Eliot is a wonderful host and you won't see him as he makes sure your time is uninterrupted. But if you need him he is always right there. If you want to enjoy the Big Island, local style, this is your place. I did notice a review on the property that complained about the things I found to be the best attributes of the property. Believe me this property is as advertised. The shower is exquisite with shades, curtains and completely surrounded by a beautiful garden. Oh, and you get a private parking lot that connects with the place. Just awesome.

booked three nights stayed three hours

  • 1 of 5

after being on the property and meeting the owner my wife and I chose to stay in an alternate location. We informed the owner that it was due to a lack of privacy and the inconvenience of the shower and bathroom ffacilities. You have to exit the front and walk around to back of building to use the bathroom and the shower gazebo has no door only a curtain. no shades shutters or blinds only screens.the owner runs a business (he iss a DR.of psychology) on property and the clients drive right by, mere feet from the shower gazebo If you are considering this property look VERY closely at the pics.. The owner markets the property well and it looks nice but its not the place for conservative midwesterners like us. We rented a motel in town an d forfeited our entire payment to the owner. I left it up to him to decide if a whole or partial refund would be in order but havent received anyword yet
