"It was perfect. A big clean house with everything we need in a beautiful environment. We had a beautiful view, a wonderful garden and much space. The checkin and checkout was very simple. Randall was very friendly and helpful."

"We arrived to a clean and well-stocked condo. It's not the Ritz, folks, but it was clean, comfortable, well-stocked, and in a perfect location. We enjoyed the view and seeing whales from the lanai with the binoculars provided. The location was convenient to our planned activities, yet away from any noisy town traffic. Our favorite part was snorkeling next door with the turtles. We went just before sunset and there were about 30 turtles in the lagoon. We hiked around volcanoes national park, and enjoyed the fresh produce and the lilikoi butters at the farmers market. But, the most amazing day was at Imiloa planetarium. We went for an hour show and none of us was ready to leave after 4 hours, including our four year old. We have been to planetaria in Los Angeles and Chicago, but prefer this one. Our presenter, Cam, also works at Mauna Kea on the telescopes. He was very informative as well as patient and inspiring for our child. The food at Imiloa was the best we tasted of any restaurant in Hilo.
This condo was a great place to stay and we will definitely try to stay in this unit again."

"We stayed at the Riverhouse HideAway and we had a wonderful stay. The first night we got there it was raining so hard and it was very dark. Mozela came out to greet us with an umbrella and help us find our way to the back where our entrance was. So nice! The bedroom was clean and cozy as was the rest of the house. There were little notes to help us find our way around the rental. When we got up the next morning...well that was when we were in love with our rental. The backyard was beautiful and the river wasn't a little stream but was quite large! Running all the way though the backyard down the mountain. Breathtaking to say the least! The landscaping was amazing well taken care of and the flowers were gorgeous. I must say for this time of year, I felt we had the best flowers in all of Hilo, after driving around town and hardly seeing any flowers.
Originally, I had been a bit concerned with the owners living upstairs but it was not an issue at all! We had family come to hang out a couple of times during our stay and they loved it. The only thing was the small driveway. I think I missed the turn about 80% of the time and had to turn back around. But that's my fault for not paying attention. I would definitely go back and rent this rental again. It was a great find! Thank you Mozela and Glen!"

"This is a great vacation home -- the pictures do not do it justice. It is well furnished and a nice remodel. About 10 minutes from downtown Hilo and 2 hours from Kona, so it was very convenient to the major sights and activities that we wanted to see. The house was clean, spacious, and has nice features, especially the kitchen -- it was truly like coming home after our day's activities. We were fortunate to get to know the owners of the house and they immediately made us feel like family. They are a generous and friendly couple -- they truly showed us the Aloha spirit during our stay there. They recommended the Hawaiian Style Cafe in Hilo to us and that has become our favorite restaurant on the Big Island. We plan to come back again next year and hopefully this home will be available at that time."
