A Month in Paradise!
I stayed in Bob and Rose's Hideaway for a month and loved it!
They have made such great use of the space, from a Murphey bed that folds into the wall, to a shower curtain with pockets on the inside for storage of all your shower toiletries and, shoe storage too!
The little kitchen has everything except an oven/stove, but they provide a crockpot, hotplate, microwave and everything else you would need to fix your meals.
I will definitely be back!
Thank you Bob and Rose for sharing your condo in paradise!
Tiny but thoughtful details
This space was tight for 3 adults, but we were only there 2 nights so it wasn't bad. Ground level made it nice getting in and out. There were a few staples in the cupboard and frig, shampoo and soap in the bath, and a selection of books on the shelves. Rose was very helpful in giving us a couple of extra hours to vacate since our flight was so late.
Even with all the lights on at night it was still rather dim. It could benefit from some LED lamps in the fixtures and a reading light above the murphy bed.
First time to stay at Rose's. It was great.
We have stayed at the Kona Islander before so I was happy to try it again. Rose and her husband were easy to work with, very kind, and accommodating. She has made the condo relaxing and comfortable. I appreciated the cleanliness and location. My sister required first floor, so that worked out well. Parking was not an issue for us as I knew to secure a spot before 5 pm. When arriving after that, parking can be a little scarce but not impossible. Pool and hot tub a plus.
Cozy & Convenient
We loved our stay at the Kona Islander Inn! It has everything you need, and the best part is that it is a short walk to the strip of restaurants and waterfront in the heart of downtown Kona. Our hosts were very accommodating and quick to respond if we needed anything. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone :)
Mahalo for your great review of Rose's Hideaway!
A sweet and lovely place. So close to everything. Everything I needed was there.
The hosts were so kind and accommodating.
I will definitely return.
Small but sweet!
Everything you could wish for a short or long stay in the middle of Ali'i Drive, Kailua-Kona
This is a well appointed unit in the Kona Islander Inn, within easy walking distance of restaurants, etc on Ali'i Drive. The unit is near the lobby on the ground floor. No carrying luggage and provisions upstairs. Rose and Bob have provided everything that you could possibly want during your stay - a range of kitchen equipment, condiments in the fridge, beach towels and beach chairs - the list could go on and on. Sofa beds and Murphy beds are typically not the most comfortable for sleeping. These were quite reasonable and the three of us slept soundly for our two night stay.
The unit was spotlessly clean and cosy. Be sure to read the Guest information that Bob and Rose provide. We did not notice it until we were packing up to leave. I managed to work out the user ID and password for the WiFi from the modem with a little detective work. Much easier to refer to the file with all the info set out clearly.
This was our third time at the Islander and we will try to book Rose's Hideaway next year for our annual stay in Kailua-Kona. Best so far.
We were happy to host Marilyn and her friends on their annual cross-island adventure. They left our unit in a very clean condition and we would welcome them back to Rose's Hideaway anytime!
