Charming River house
"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!"

"Our entire family loved staying at this spacious and comfy retreat! We had a big group of about 16 aunties and cousins all staying here for my sisters wedding. We rented out the house and apartment which gave us lots of room for everyone. There were plenty of beds, futons/couches, pillows and bedding for all. Plus 4 full bathrooms! We especially enjoyed how spacious the kitchen, great room and outdoor living areas are. Perfect for group cooking and having family parties!
And if that wasn't enough Starr, the property manager, is just about the nicest and most helpful person you'll ever meet! She greets you warmly as soon as you get there and makes you feel right at home. She's very knowledgeable about the area and goes out of her way to help you enjoy your stay!"

"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."
