The Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway is a custom vacation home on 2 private acres surrounded by lush rainforest which gives you the experience of old Hawaiian style simple elegance.
The entrance from the road to the rainforest hideaway. Rammed earth walls, fronted by 35 ft. bamboo, ti, bromeliads and other tropicals. The house is set back aprox 200ft. from the road.
Beautiful custom vacation home on 2 private acres in a rainforest setting all for yourself with no one else around.
The house is romantic, peaceful and clean. Perfect for honeymooners, personal retreat, eco-travelers, yogis, adventurers, or anyone who just wants to get away from it all, but still be close enough to all that the Big Island has to offer.
We are centrally located in Puna, 15 miles south of Hilo, a 5 miles outside of the quaint town of Pahoa with all its restaurants and shops. Spend your days exploring the near by warm ponds, black sand beach, snorkeling, hiking, restaurants, waterfalls, Volcanoes National Park, current lava flows, Mauna Kea summit, museums, and much more.
The current lava flow in the town of Pahoa does not have any effect on the Rainforest Hideaway or our major attractions. We are 6 miles to the north, a great vantage point to go down and see the lava up close from a safe distance.

Connie and Andrew were waiting for us at the property on arrival, showed us where to find many key items, how to work the wi-fi, and where to find beach supplies as well. The indoor and outdoor were as advertised, plus lovely landscaping appropriate for the jungle atmosphere, and several stunning fresh cut floral arrangements added charm. The kitchen and bathroom are well-stocked with many thoughtful details not found in most airbnb properties. We appreciated these. It's a peaceful place to settle in, with a counterpoint of the voluminous song of coqui frogs from dusk well into the night. The neighborhood at the time we stayed is mostly undeveloped early successional forest with a smattering of homes built into the forest here and there.
My husband and I enjoyed ten days at the Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway. From being warmly welcomed by our hosts to enjoying everything our jungle home and Big Island locale had to offer, we had a fantastic time.
The cottage is lovely, and exactly as described. Very private and in a beautiful setting. A lot of thought has gone into the equipping the kitchen and bathroom with everything a guest could need, and the cottage is spotlessly clean.
Very well situated for visits to Volcanoes National Park and for exploring beautiful Puna.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Connie and Andrew's place. It was a perfect setting to relax and enjoy Hawaiian life. Everything we needed for our stay was provided and we were impressed with the cleanliness of the house.
Truly wonderful, peaceful house in a beautiful setting. Great location for volcanoes, puna, hilo, and the coast. We will be back!
Andrew & Connie made our short stay here in Big Island rainforest hideout so memorable! The location of the place with green surrounding is amazing. The open view of the rainforest from the living room with its decoration made it even more relaxing. Andrew helped us with very helpful tips about where to visit etc. There is nothing I can think of is not here in the house including kitchen utensils,crockeries, spices, toiletries, chocolates, first-aid items with some medicines. Everything was clean, fresh and organized with care. The sound of birds and Coqui frogs were charming as well. It's got a little cold here at night but we got extra blankets to sleep comfortably. Plenty of beach towels and bath towels are provided. We enjoyed the unique outdoor shower a lot. It's an experience of a lifetime. We wish to come back here again.
Very enjoyable stay. Thanks for thinking of everything. The place and neighborhood are just charming. The "green" focus, with earth-friendly products, were especially refreshing.
