Located in an exclusive area of Hilo, the RiverHouse Hide-Away is nestled in a tropical river setting on a nearly-one-acre estate. A crystal-clear river meanders through the property year 'round, and is complemented by a carpet-like lawn, majestic trees and beautiful blooms.
The Hide-Away is a separate spacious unit on the first floor of this fine example of a 1948-vintage, traditional 'plantation-style' Hilo home. Your hosts, Glenn and Mozella, welcome you to their home, and will be just upstairs and will be available for your questions. There is a completely separate entrance and patio area for your privacy. Your living room, tastefully appointed in a tropical motif, is a warm and inviting space. The kitchenette is supplied with everything you will need for fixing light meals. There are some wonderful local restaurants just down the hill to enjoy.
Dine to the sweet sound of the gentle rapids, whether you are inside or out. You will have a lovely fireplace for a special romantic ambiance during the cool winter evenings. An entertainment center with cable TV, VCR and DVD players is there for you, with a stereo that plays tapes and CDs. Wireless and cable RoadRunner high-speed Internet services are also provided.
Enjoy your own private lanai, with a barbecue, patio furnishings and loungers, for dining out by the river or just soaking up some sun! The house sits at 800 feet elevation, above flood and hurricane zones.
The bedroom features a king bed and lots of nicely-crafted built-ins. We provide luxury hotel linens as well as a hypoallergenic alternative down pillow-top. There is also a full laundry for your use.
Because of insurance liability, at this time, the Riverhouse Hide-Away is for adult guests only. The Hide-Away is a Strictly Non-Smoking Retreat.
Right in town, the RiverHouse Hide-Away is only minutes away from beautiful beach parks and everything Hilo has to offer. Theaters, UH-Hilo, Imiloa Astronomy Center, restaurants, surfing, kayak rentals, an amazing Farmer's Market, museums, guided walks, and much more, are just a few of these offers!

We are residents of the Big Island, having moved from Texas in April 2012. We love our new home, city, and state. We can't wait to share them all with you!
The moment we saw and felt the peaceful beautiful river flowing in the backyard of the RiverHouse, we were hooked!
Certainly the most unique feature of the RiverHouse is our pure spring river. A spectacular vintage house with modern appointments and great views just up the hill from downtown Hilo and local beaches, 30 minute drive to the volcano, a little longer drive to some of the most unusual beaches in the world--what more could a Hilo vacactioner want?
Ocean sports (Swimming, body-boarding, Kayak Rentals), world-class Astronomy Center with Planetarium, Museums, 45 min to Volcano National Park and Kapoho Tidepools.
