  • Lovely bungalow close to DT Hilo

    "Back for our second year here we've found a great Hilo home within easy walking distance to all the DT Hilo places. A papaya tree right there offers fresh fruit to boot!! The unit is updated with a modern equipped kitchen and bathroom and is very comfortable. Diane, the owner, is helpful with tips on local stuff and there for any assistance needed. We've found our Hilo place!"

  • Relaxing option with great location for beach parks

    "We loved the location, a 10 minute drive from downtown but next to the Hilo beach parks. Easy access for driving to nearby attractions, including Volcano National Park, Pahoa, and lava viewing. The sound of waves and frogs at night were an unexpected lullaby with the tree canopy on the other side of the pool from the master bedroom window. The toaster didn't work, the bedroom ceiling fans and bathroom vent were covered with a thick layer of dust, and the vacuum in the closet wasn't functioning to clean them. Response time from management to ask about a key that was specified in our directions but not included in the lockbox was 24 hours, so we didn't bother to ask about a Philips head screwdriver to tighten the creaking master bed or a working vacuum. There were not blinds in the master bedroom so sunrise was the natural alarm clock just before 7:00 am. Even with the areas that could use improvement, the location and value bump the rating to 5 stars. The building is not modern, and there are many other units within the property that are listed on VRBO with the same management company. This unit had a nice oceanside view and the benefits of the abutting forest for a much more enjoyable stay than being on the road side of the building. The beach park next door was very popular with locals, and we were lucky to have a parking spot on the property that afforded us walking two minutes from the unit to the park. We would consider returning to this unit."

  • 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."
