  • Fun local Hawaiian experience

    "Loved all the space, and the home is decorated in such fun Hawaiian themes and colors. We had three kids, and three adults so we are glad we rented the extra room that comes with an extra bathroom too, that was helpful. The house has everything you need for your stay, very comfortable. The owner will do a load of laundry for a fee, which we needed. They also had a great selection of DVDs which my kids enjoyed. There is no AC but with the many fans it was still comfortable. The only thing that was strange, but ended up working out better than we thought, was that you can't use the water from the faucets. You can only use the water they provide from the large water bottles. The house is tucked away in a neighborhood and feels very private. It's a great location to get to Volcano NP, waterfalls, Hilo's farmer market and many more fun things. If you are questioning coming the Hilo side of the island, you should go!"

  • Tropical Paradise

    "Lopaka's Lodge was like 'home away from home'. Bev thought of everything, from coffee and creamer for our first morning after arrival to canvas shopping bags to use for food shopping! The kitchen was very well stocked and the laundry room was fantastic and also fully stocked. Most rentals do not include things like laundry detergent, etc., but Bev's had it all. There were beach towels, sunscreen, umbrellas, the list goes on and on. The lanai was perfect for morning coffee. I especially liked the white rope lights that line the lanai which we turned on every night. They added such atmosphere (along with the coqui frogs serenading us every night)! The location is in a lovely neighborhood, an easy drive to the Volcano National Park which we visited two days and was a highlight of our two weeks. And the Hawaii Botanical Gardens was another highlight--an amazing place. Bev hugged us when we arrived and it felt like we knew her forever! We hope to return someday. Aloha!"

  • Third Stay at Mauna Loa Shores

    "We love the location, the amenities and security of this property. We were in Unit 407 which has the closest parking spot and entrance to the elevator. It has a beautiful view of the jungle canopy and of the tide pools. There is plenty of closet space and storage for your belongings. Washer and dryer just outside the door. This is a short drive from the airport, so check in before heading out to shop and see what staples you might need. We have no issues with using spices and accouterments others have left. An assortment of water toys is usually available in the unit. The complex is almost located right in the park where you have easy snorkeling, swimming and turtle viewing. We will always try to stay in this complex and rent from this owner."

  • 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."
