About Connie and Andrew

Fun loving couple, semi retired from the entertainment business, now living in the jungles of east Hawaii. World travelers, we spend most our days organic farming and building our rammed earth house. We live up the road from the Rainforest Hideaway on a separate property. Our friendly and well behaved dogs, Jackson and Frankie, often join us to greet our guests upon arrival. Andrew, originally from Australia, designs and builds custom homes and is a FEO Officer and tanker driver for the local Volunteer Fire Department. Connie is a wardrobe stylist and yoga instructor at a local yoga center.

Connie and Andrew purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Connie and Andrew chose Big Island Hawaii

The Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway is a unique and very private property. Located in a rare old growth jungle/rainforest area of Puna with many native and exotic plants and trees, yet still just a mile from the highway, 200 ft. off a paved road. (unpaved road is maintained and fine for rental cars) The perfect location to get away from it all but still be close enough to all the sights, restaurants and activites. Many other places you share the house or property with others, but not here. This is 2 acres all to yourself, beautifully landscaped with many extra touches to make your stay more relaxing and enjoyable.

What makes this cabin unique

Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway has been awarded 2014 Certificate of Excellence for consistently earning top ratings from our guests.

Follow/ 'like' us on Facebook ~ Enchanting Rainforest Hideaway

Hawaii Island, aka the Big Island, was ranked number 7 as the World's Best Island destinations in Travel and Leisure magazine, Winter 2012. Come explore one of the planets' most beautiful islands for yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The rainforest hideaway was everything I wanted and then some! Andrew and Connie greeted me and made sure I had everything I needed before leaving me to total privacy. I loved the outdoor shower but couldn't resist the claw foot a few times. Four weeks in the Hideaway was four weeks in paradise! Thanks Condrew! Five stars from this happy guest!

Simply Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

The Rainforest Hideaway is simply enchanting. There is a great big world to explore so we rarely return to a place we’ve visited. I’m not sure we can resist the pull to come back here... nor should we want to. The cottage is completely private and has pretty much anything you’d need. There are so many things to do in Pahoa and in the Puna district. We only spent 4 nights but wish it would have been for the full 7 that we visited the island. You can pack less too. Our luggage was lost on our flight there and we didn’t really need anything while awaiting it’s arrival.

Isolated and quiet seclusion with a great cabin feel without compromising luxury or comfort.

  • 5 of 5

Very close to good food and ammenities without being busy. Very secluded and private. Connie and Andrew were excellent and welcoming but didn't intrude. Very helpful. Amazing luxury cabin and clean and tidy and organized. This was everything we wanted.

Absolutely wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful six nights at this truly relaxing, wonderful cottage! Connie and Andrew have provided us tourists to the Big Island with a gem! Everything we could ask for and even some extras! Fresh flowers, wine and chocolates to greet us on our arrival, made our 35th Anniversary truly memorable!! Great directions and tips on the sightseeing high lites of the area. This location was a perfect spot to come "home" to every evening after our day excursions! Close to the Volcano and all the sites this side of the island has! Great snorkelling spot at the hot ponds that Connie recommended. Having snorkel gear here was a plus! We enjoyed the outdoor shower and the place was well stocked with kitchen and bath supplies! Thank you Connie and Andrew for a truly magical, amazing stay!!

Tranquil, well appointed gem of a place.

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. It rained a lot but it didn't matter because it was so cozy, so serene, with everything you could need to relax and enjoy the setting. Great location, easy to get to, but totally private. Every detail of the house, from the bed, to the furnishings, to free snorkeling gear, to to the well equipped kitchen was perfect. The hosts live near by and made themselves available for anything that might come up. I wish I was back there right now!

Amazing Little Place in the jungle!

  • 5 of 5

This is the greatest little place! We didn't spend a lot of time inside, nevertheless, this IS the place to stay! The amenities abound,, it's private, close to where we needed to be, reasonably priced, and overall., an immaculate little piece of heaven!

We are located close to Volcanoes National Park and Kalapana where the active lava flows down the volcano and meets the ocean. This is one of the world's most active volcanoes and viewing is quite easy and accessable. The park is other worldly and the flows are fantastic. You can view by helicopter, boat, car or my favorite, on foot. Local guides available and recommended. Not to be missed, a real bucket list experience.
