About the property

1 BR with private lanai overlooking Kilauea Rive and/or 1BR for single traveler

RiverSong is nestled in two tropical acres alongside Kilauea River. The river sings below and waterfalls splash beneath your private, secluded lanai. Our gardens abound with color from red ginger, gardenia, orange and yellow heliconia, purple and pink bougainvilla and multi colored plumeria blossoms. Palm trees gently sway outside the wide windows and scarlet flame trees tower overhead. Our guest suite with queen bed & private bath and lanai overlooking the river9($140/nt) is perfect for couples while another bedroom with detached private bath could be a great lower cost alternative for single travelers@$110/nt

Situated in the charming old plantation town of Kilauea we are close to private waterfalls, the South Pacific famed 'slippery slide,' hiking trails, kayaking and horseback riding as well as fine dining, boutique shopping and the Kilauea Lighthouse Wildlife Sanctuary, the northern most point of the Hawaiian Island chain.

Nearby are many fine beaches for great snorkeling, sunning, bodybording and surfing as well as the renown Priceville Resort unsurpassed golf only five miles away.

The magnificent NaPali coast and the hiking trailhead to Kalalau Valley are only 12 miles away at the end of one of the most beautiful, breathtaking, scenic drives you will ever find.

About The Owner

RiverSong is a truly special location and I am so blessed to be able to share it with others

Here I am in blue with my new friend, Lorraine, a recent visitor from Victoria B.C.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Kilauea

My first visit to Kauai was in 1980 and it was indeed 'love at first sight'. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area, I had lived in CA all my life. While visiting Kauai in December 1999 anticipating the change into the year 2000, I was introduced to RiverSong and my life was forever changed ....See for yourself how very special it is at RiverSong

What makes this house unique

RiverSong has the ability to adapt to each guests personal wants and wishes. If you want a quiet, all by yourself vacation experience, that is indeed possible. If however you want to learn more about the island, it's hidden beauty and interact with our family, that too is possible. The choice is yours.

We want to help make this a truly memorable vacation experience for each of you.

We have received a Home Stay/B&B permit from the County of Kauai and look forward to continuing to give our guests the best possible Kauai experience

Nicki house is very clean and beautiful, our room was just as nice,very clean and we loved the view of the river,we slept with the sliding glass door open,loved the sound of the water, she cooked a amazing breakfast every morning, and left it by the door when we where ready, you will not find a better or healthier breakfast to start your day it was great. when we came back from our adventures the bed was made and the room was stocked up again with fresh towels. very nice quite private room would definitely stay here again if we come back, and I so miss her breakfast!!!! Thank you Nicki!!

Very nice bedroom , bathroom, sitting room with small lanai perched right over the river

  • 5 of 5

Nicely situated residence, well appointed. A beautiful breakfast was waiting on a tray outside our door each morning. Nicki greeted us and got us settled. We didn’t need any island knowledge because we had lived there but she knows the island well after nearly 20 years and volunteers at the nearby Na Aina Kai Gardens and the Kilauea Lighthouse.

The Song

  • 5 of 5

Nikki was an incredible hostess. She made us fantastic breakfasts of wonderful pastries, exotic fruits, and frittatas. She was around when we needed her for information and fun. Otherwise she was quiet and respectful. The sound of the river was mesmerizing. We had a wonderful stay, so wonderful that we are now moving to Kauai.

Owner's Response: How delightful that you will soon be Kauai residents. There is a saying that "Kauai calls those people she wants to live here". Indeed it seems that Kauai has called you. I hope that this island paradise is everything you want it to be and more

Lovely Room

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Riversong for 3 nights. The room is very comfortable with a private balcony and bathroom. It was a short drive to Hanalei where we spent most of our time. It was also a less than 5 minute drive to the bakery and bistro restaurant which had delicious food. Nicki was a very friendly and hospitable host. The one thing I can say is that the wifi was a little spotty.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Denise, it was nice having you stay with us at RiverSong. So glad you enjoyed both Pau Hana Bakery & the Bistro. I'm glad you mentioned the WiFi issue, I will have our computer tech look into it, but sometimes here on the northshore of Kauai we are at the mercy of our limited WiFi providers

Amazing! Riversong is a wonderful retreat nestled on a river with beautiful jungle like views from your private lanai. After busy days hiking, sightseeIng and trying to see all the wonderful things Kauai has to offer, it is a comfortable home away from home. Nicki is very knowledgeable about the area and made time to share her love of the island with me. She truly made me feel welcome and was there for my many questions. The breakfast was over the top. Fresh fruit, scones, yogurt, juice... , so much I stored the extra in the small refrigerator in the room for snacks.

The room was well appointed with a sitting area and lanai. TV, books, movies, magazines to wind down in the evening. Nicki is an excellent host and I look forward to a return visit in the near future.

River Song B&B Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This B&B was especially nice to visit and stay for my time visiting. RiverSong is located next to a river, i found this especially wonderful after a long day of exploring the North

Shore and beyond. The Lighthouse (2 miles from the B&B) the town of Kilauea, ( bakery and shops and yoga studio) Hanalei, Princeville, beaches, all were part of my visit.

The room was beautiful; comfortable bed, lots of pillows, and the reading area was equipped with a couch and lounging chairs. My favorite was the lanai where i enjoyed my morning coffee. Nicki provided lovely fruits from local markets, and coffee and eggs/toast or muffins. This arrangement was perfect before the day began. (make sure to enjoy the local hawaiian

fruits provided)

I have an interest in birding, natural beauty of the sea and mountains, and i found Nicki

to be more than accommodating with her extensive knowledge of the island. She mentioned

the Albatross on the island and the Lighthouse where i may find some in flight. Nicki was

a real gem, and made my stay more than i had envisioned. Mahalo, Nicki.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your time with us at RiverSong. The nesting Laysan Albatross, the Cornell Lab Albatross Live cam & the Kilauea Lighthouse are just a few of my favorite things here on Kauai. I'm glad you were able to experience them & enjoy them as well. Hope you will return again soon.
