I just got back from a 6 night stay at Hawaii's Hidden Hideaway, and I just read the TA reviews--they seemed to cluster around 5 and 1--either folks loved it, or hated it. Well, my husband and I loved it. I will give the negatives first--the reasons it did not merit 5 stars--the bathroom sink had some soap residue on the sink drain, and one of the pillows had a musty smell. So, perhaps the owner should hire a more meticulous housekeeper. That said, the location, garden, nearby beach were indeed paradisical. We were a 2-walk block from the loveliest beach on the island of Oahu, Lanikai Beach. We walked down for a swim every morning, and loved that beach. We were in a beautiful garden (I'm a gardener, and appreciate the work that goes into flower gardens), on an absolutely quiet side street. The price was quite reasonable given that we were in a small, exclusive neighborhood near a lovely beach. The lanai was private and perfect for breakfast or an afternoon cocktail. The parrots and songbirds in the garden made a perfect way to wake up every morning. The hostess was friendly and accommodating. We appreciated the use of her washer and dryer, and the studio apartment was stocked with beach chairs, beach mats, plenty of towels, a thoughtful selection of breakfast items. We will stay again, as the crowds and bustle of Waikiki or even Kailua Beach Park are not nearly as romantic or beautiful as the pristine sand and laid-back atmosphere of Lanikai Beach.
