A Hawaii vacation rental on the sunny Kona coast. Vacation rental available year round for your tropical island vacation or romantic vacation getaway.

Aloha and Welcome

If you've been searching for the perfect tropical island vacation rental, search no longer. Nestled in the heart of the western side of Hawaii's historic and untouched Big Island you'll find Tropical Hideaway, a unique Hawaii garden retreat.

Tropical Hideaway is a charming Hawaii-style studio apartment in a lush garden setting, with ocean views, a chemical-free salt water swimming pool with waterfall, and private hot tub.

Tropical Hideaway is just three minutes away from fabulous snorkeling, kayaking, diving and dolphin experiences at Honaunau (Two Step), and close to Kealakekua Bay & Ho'okena Bay.

The beautifully landscaped garden is filled with mango, papaya, banana, avocado and other fruit trees and flowers. Relax in the back to nature environment or explore the island by day and return to your cozy retreat by night.

See the awesome beauty of Hawaii's active volcano in Volcanoes National Park, visit stunning beaches, or the cowboy country of Waimea--all within a 1.5 hour drive.

This place is very special. A real retreat into the heart and soul of paradise and the spirit of Hawaii and Aloha. The studio is like a home and the gardens are beautiful. All the amenities.

Exactly what we wanted and hoped for! The Tropical Hideaway was minutes away from Two Step beach, the best snorkeling on the island. And the studio itself - just gorgeous.


We love this place! It is so perfect -- the tropical vegetation that provides privacy and lovely wind music, the fresh flowers, and the extra amenities such as beach chairs and mats.

Just 20 miles south of the charming town of Kailua-Kona, on the sunny, west side of the Big Island, Tropical Hideaway is near the Place of Refuge National Park and the Painted Church. Volcano National Park, a prime tourist destination, is unforgettable, and 1.5 hours away. Our vacation rental is not only perfectly situated for those who wish to experience the real Hawaii, it's also affordable. The true diversity of Hawaii is available only on the Big Island, and you can come share it with us in our gorgeously situated romantic vacation getaway.


Swimming Pool with Waterfall

We had a wonderful, restful, glorious visit, and thoroughly enjoyed the warm, inviting space -- a splendid, relaxing, "home away." It was everything we hoped for and more!

Morning songbirds with the gentle breeze through the banana leaves has been the perfect wake up call in this intimate cottage nestled here in tropical paradise. We loved the morning swims with the turtles, and the uncrowded bay of tidepools at sunset.
