RIGHT IN HILO, OWN PRIVATE RIVER RUNS THRU IT!

Hilo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

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!

Mozela Dundas purchased this apartment in 2011

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?

Tropical paradise

Beautifully maintained grounds with sweeping lawns, palms and colorful plants, and a river
running through create an incomparable tropical environment. The interior is spacious and
well-equiped for comfort. This was my second visit here. I would return again.

Paradise in Hilo!!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do justice to this absolutely gorgeous hide-a-way!! I'm a Hawaii born gal who knows my islands, and I was blown away by the beauty of this place.....so typical of the beauty of our island State. We're almost to the end of our visit, and I will definitely miss getting up to the beauty of the gardens here. You won't be disappointed if you rent this place!! Mozela and Glenn, mahalo nui loa for letting us come to your beautiful island "digs".

Wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful condo! It was so quiet and peaceful. The grounds are wonderful, the stream and birds were delightful. Condo located in north hilo, not far from rainbow falls and just a few minutes from downtown hilo. We loved our week there and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet place in hilo.

Hard to imagine a more scenic urban place than her. Super well maintained unit and grounds. Very peaceful. Wonderful hosts. Many nice touches included. Great location for exploring Hilo area. Wish we had booked more than 3 days.

Home away from Home...in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved the River House Hide-Away! We felt so very welcome and right at home. Every detail is taken care of - from umbrellas to flip flops to water bottles in the refrigerator - they even made sure we had a continental breakfast for us for the morning after our arrival because we came in so late. The sounds of the river running through the property, the birds, the breezes...even the frogs were beautiful. It was so peaceful to sit out on the lanai to take in all the sights, smell the flowers and feel like you were in Paradise. It's a central location making day trips to all the places we visited - Volcanoes National Park, Waipi'o Valley, Akaka Falls, Rainbow Falls, Mauna Kea, Hawaii Botanical Gardens, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach - so easy and quick to get to. Mozela was a fountain of information and provided helpful hints, history of the Island and tips on times to be places we wanted to see to get the most from our visits. All of the suggestions - including restaurants - loved Café Pesto (went twice) - were great! It's obviously a well-loved home and we feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to have spent some time in this home away from home! Mahalo to Glenn and Mozela!
