Very enjoyable and easy to feel relaxed in this space. Had everything we needed both inside and out. Area is beautiful to walk and enjoy fresh produce and baked goods right down the road. The host is a available if need but is invisible if your doing your thing. Definitely will book again.

We absolutely loved our experience at Paradise Hideaway! It was so peaceful listening to all the nature sounds and I loved how everything was closed in with screens instead of windows! Everything was very clean and Ms. Kathleen was very kind and made sure we had everything we needed. We felt at home and didn’t want to leave once our stay was up :( I’m very glad we found Paradise Hideaway! It was like our own little rainforest!

Kathleen's place is a wonderful, relaxing hideaway. The inside is screened all around so you feel like you are always outside in the air, even when snuggled in bed. Hot tub outside your door, swimming pool a few steps away. Walk to the Painted Church, 5 min drive to Two Step and the Place of Refuge. Love it.

We loved our private ohana.Pictures are accurate to web site. Even though there are other people living here still very private and enjoyed working on our sun tans by the pool.The temp of pool in Jan was 75 degrees,which I found prefect We were treated to various fruits during our stay.We enjoyed the breeze that drifted various flower fragrances into our ohana as we slept at night.This is the tropicals and no windows but we found very few little creatures to bother us,we found geckos so entertaining .The hot tub was fantastic to enjoy before and after a day of exploring.This is a great location for snorkeling and hiking.We appreciated the quiet evenings as you are staying under the main house so be mindful not to be loud and as we appreciated the same as you can hear when there is only screens.The road is close but this is a quiet road at night,only the chickens ,frogs and some dogs so if you are a light sleeper you will need ear plugs.Over all I give this hideaway 5star.

Real Hawaii, not the prepackaged-looks-like-any-other-resort type of thing. Kathleen is a wonderful host who gives you privacy while being quick to answer any question. Fresh fruit from the trees, refreshing outdoor shower and hot tub, and great access to tourism sites. Got to sleep to the song of coqui frogs. (Bring earplugs of this bothers you) Highly recommended!

Owner (Katheen) was gracious and sweet! We had communicated with her several times prior to our arrival date. She was always very timely in responding. Although it appears you are in a thick jungle setting, you are actually in a neighborhood with all the usual noises (people, dogs, traffic noise, etc.) as well as the normal Coqui frogs & the roosters, Ha Ha! However, Kathleen provides earplugs to help at night. Despite all these things we slept pretty well. Outdoor shower is fun, we had to time our showers around the morning and evening mosquitoes, same goes for the use of the small 2 person spa. Good news was the small green geckos are great mosquito eaters and fun to watch. We enjoyed the fresh fruit available from the property, especially the apple-bananas & papayas! This a basically a ground level screened in patio with lovely gardens & ocean views, NO WINDOWS to open or close, so be prepared to deal with heat & humidity! Obviously the time of year will determine heat & humidity levels. Fans were available and helped a little, but breeze is on and off, a ceiling fan(s) would have been great, especially overnight. We stayed 12 nights, cooking full meals about 80% of the time and my wife found the kitchen to be adequately equipped. Wonderful location very near Painted Church, City of Refuge historic site & "Two step" snorkeling area also for less crowded beaches try nearby Ho'okena Beach & Manini Beach park. Be sure to stop by "Joe's Nuts" for the best macadamia nuts on the island!

We call this our staycation because, living on the Hilo side of the island, the Captain Cook side is so different, who needs to get on a plane to have a vacation? Kathy's tropical hideaway was what we needed. She was there to greet us and during our stay, was pleasant in responding to our questions. Location was perfect to explore the area and the places to eat; great food. We have already recommended this place to our doctor and she is loving what we submitted.

This is a great property for exploring Honaunau Napoopoo & south Kona area. Tropical Hideaway is better than glamping. The outdoor shower is awesome & the hot tub is a super welcomed plus. This was our 2nd stay & we'll for sure be back for a 3rd.

We, wife and I, enjoyed our 3 day stay. It was private and in a the quaint town of Honaunau-Napoopoo. The studio has all you need as far as kitchen facilities. The private outdoor shower and hot tub is a nice feature and you can eat inside or on the patio. There is a gas grill, snorkel equipment, etc. Near Hookena Beach Park and 2 Step. Kathy is a delightful host and does not bother you. But she is avaiable if needed. Would definitely stay there again.
