  • Amazing beautiful place to honeymoon!!

    "We enjoyed the Hulili farm so very much! Longan were being harvested and tasted yummy. Todd and Madeleine were wonderful and kind hosts. Todd provided much insight regarding things to do in the area around Hilo and Volcano National Park. The cottage was very clean with great amenities. The hanging bed was such a treasure and very cozy. There was lots of rain while we were there (10/26-10/30), but the sound was fabulous on the tin roof. The sleep number bed was a treat and worked well for us, surprisingly."

  • Spectacular!

    "When my husband and I got our first look at the river running through the yard that gives River House Hideaway it's name, we knew we'd found something special. And when we walked through the front door, we wondered how we were ever going to pry ourselves away! The River House made the perfect base for our Hilo area stay. Spotlessly clean, it had all the amenities we needed, including plenty of towels and a well-equipped kitchen, though to be honest, we didn't do much real cooking. Location-wise, it's very convenient to downtown Hilo and the waterfront, several big supermarkets, Target, and a multiplex cinema. Nighttime sounds included the music of the Coqui frogs and the murmur of rain and river. It made for wonderful, restorative sleep. My only caveat is to be mindful of the mosquitoes. I made the mistake of going outside to the riverbank in the early morning to snap some pictures. I got eaten alive!!! Lesson learned! We have family in Hilo, and so most times we stay with them, but when that's not possible, like our most recent visit, we will definitely consider returning to The River House Hideaway. Thank you Mozella and Glenn."

  • A wonderful, relaxing, vacation home!

    "We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to stay at Steve's fantastic Hilo house. It was perfectly located - very near to downtown Hilo, the airport, and Volcano National Park. We were 3 adults and 3 children - and there was PLENTY of room for all of us. The kitchen was well appointed - and we enjoyed a few meals cooked at home while we were there. The beds were super comfortable - and even though AC was available - we did NOT need it - the trade winds and fans kept the house quite cool and comfortable. The sounds of the ocean and frogs put us to sleep every night - and the neighborhood rooster(s) woke us in the morning. The massage chair was very relaxing too. The hot water was plenty hot, and plentiful for when we needed showers, laundry, and dishes washed. The teapot was greatly appreciated as 1 of us had a bad cold, and hot tea was enjoyed often. We didn't have enough time to use the hot tub - but we sure wanted to! We didn't use the big screen TV - we were just too busy all day, that when we got 'home' - we mainly went to sleep - but the TV looked amazing! The views from the house of the ocean were just awesome. We hope to be blessed enough to be able to return, and would love to stay at Steve's home again. Communication with Steve was fantastic from start to finish - and our damage deposit was returned before we even got off the plane back in NC. Talk about quick response! On a side note - we were informed by our helicopter pilot (Scott with Blue Hawaiian - who was fantastic) during a tour, that energy costs about 7 times more in Hawaii than back in NC - so even though we consider ourselves pretty frugal with energy (and good about recycling) - we were even more so while in Hawaii."
