"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."
