Esta é uma rara oportunidade de apreciar o esplendor de um dos premier Ilhas grandes - e mais procurados - locais. . A propriedade está completamente fora da rede, mas com todas as comodidades disponíveis para um luxuoso "viver verde" experiência.
This cottage was clean and had everything we needed to live simply. Due to solar power we were careful to conserve, but were able to plug in our mifi hotspot and use our Verizon for phone & internet. 2-minute shower is encouraged. We are accustomed to marine showers, so this was not a problem. Coqui frogs sang us to sleep at night. Mary was very friendly and made sure we had what ww needed.
GARDEN HIDEAWAY WAS THE PERFECT SPOT FOR MY WIFE AND I TO GET AWAY AND DECOMPRESS...OFF THE GRID, BUT CLOSE ENOUGH TO ALLOW US TO EXPLORE THE BIG ISLAND. MARY COULD NOT HAVE BEEN A NICER, MORE CONSIDERATE HOST AND WE THANK HER FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS FOR ALLOWING US TO EXPERIENCE HER COTTAGE...AND ALL HER LITTLE HELPERS...MISS THEM ALL.

I fell in love with Garden House Hideaway and Hawaii. Mary's cottage is the perfect place from which to explore the Island. The cottage is lovely, private and unique. While it is on solar and totally off the grid, it felt just like home, but gave us the opportunity to experience a relaxing living-green situation. The bathroom is a garden wonder! It is completely private but with a fresh outdoor feel. Ocean breezes kept the cottage cool and comfortable. The grounds are immaculately tended and beautiful with a great ocean view. Garden House Hideaway is a true paradise get-away.
Mary's Garden House Hideaway is one of the best, quiet and peaceful hideaways that you will enjoy in the Big Island. It is located in the off-the-grid area of the rural north, 20-25 minutes from Hilo. At first getting there was a trek, but once you get there you will see a beautiful vista, lovely facility, exotic plant life, fun animals and a wonderful host.
One key points into making your stay special is to make sure to have enough time to see whatever you need to see (which you really need time for. You can drive the entire island in 4 or so hours. We did not have this luxury because there's many stops to see, which will take your time); feel the beauty of the area (which is no doubt amazing and spectacular everywhere. Mary's hideaway is a jewel!); and be in the presence of something beautiful (which is really ineffable. You will know and realize it once you are there).
+First, if you want to enjoy your stay in the Big Island, relinquish your urban city perspective. It's more beautiful this way.
+When planing to decide on where to to stay, consider Mary's facility...beautiful, peaceful and homey.
+After you decide to stay with Mary's facility, plan an itinerary. She has many information about the island in her cottage.
+In your initial itinerary, before you head to the island - first, we would suggest to rent an SUV or off road vehicle, just in case. The hideaway is off-grid and out in the rural areas of the upper north. Smaller vehicles is ok, but has less engine power and traction to go up hill and off the beaten path (you will go through unpaved stretch road. The road is new)
+Second, make sure to spend some time getting to know your host. This was a missed opportunity for us since we only stayed there a very short time. She's a very nice and beautiful host. Also, enjoy her pets: Bonnie (she looks like a polar bear), Copper (he may look like Koojo, but is friendly and energetic young dog) and little Trouble (such an adorable cat!) Also, there's one cow and few sheep.
+Last tip... JUST enjoy your stay!
Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience during our stay at this property and left after just 10 hours. While clean and cozy, there were some aspects that we found to be badly misrepresented:
There is no air conditioning, but only a single ceiling fan, and all doors and windows need to be open for there to be any air circulation.
In addition to the shower, the toilet and sink are also located outside and are alternately surrounded by bamboo stalks and a shower curtain.
Given that the property is solar powered and derives water from rainfall, there are significant restrictions on both electricity and water usage - the house rules limit showers and microwave use to 2-3 minutes, for instance.
The property is not private and is directly adjacent to the owners home.
There is no Internet or cell phone reception.
This property is aptly described as off the grid and refers not to just a secluded getaway, but one where you need to be comfortable with an experience lacking modern conveniences.
A few miscellaneous items to note: there are two large dogs and a cat that roam free and enter the property. The dogs are not trained. The road leading up to the property is unpaved and its use may be prohibited by the car rental agreement.
Finally, it's worth noting that our attempts to reach a resolution with the property manager did not go well and we were forced into protracted conversations with the Home Away complaints department to obtain any sort of relief. Buyer beware...
We spent a week at Garden House Hideaway and greatly enjoyed our stay. It is definitely off grid with solar power, filtered sterilized rainwater, an outside shower, and spotty cellphone coverage. However it is also enchanting with great ocean and sunrise views, a pleasant property with pastured sheep and a cow, onsite fruit including coffee, starfruit, tangerines, lemons, limes, grapefruit, papaya, coconut, pineapple, and maybe some that I have forgotten. There is a great little tea house that we enjoyed eating breakfast in while watching the sunrise. The owner is a very thoughtful woman who respects vacationers' privacy but is also immediately available for any concerns. She is also very pleasant. The property is close (abot 30 mins) to Hilo which is a small city. There are nearby hiking trails, falls, and botanical gardens. We felt the property was within reasonable driving distance to waimea (30 mins), Hawi (1h with awesome views), kona (1.5 h), volcano park (1-1.5h), and south point (2h). Many scenic points are nearby. Due to the location on the island it is evidently quite rainy in the winter. Would definitely go again!

Kilauea vulcão é bem perto e bem a pena uma visita - especialmente à noite, quando a lava incandescente flui para o mar.
