Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location of the River House was just what we were looking for. Close to towns to experience, but far enough away to give the intimate get away feel.

The house itself was better than described. The river flowing by brought a peaceful soundtrack to the evening. If the opportunity arose, we would come back!

Just what I was looking for

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were very pleased with our stay here. We wanted to avoid the resort scene, feel the real Kauai and see the beautiful north shore. This fit the bill perfectly. It's simple, completely comfortable, clean and has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The cottage is really more like an apartment within the larger home occupied by the nice family who takes care of the unit. But it was quiet and peaceful and the sound of the river is soothing. It's located between Hanalei and where the road ends at the Napali Coast. I would absolutely return again. Hanalei is a charming town, large enough to offer a variety of shops and restaurants, but small enough to feel relaxing. I recommend the Napali Coast tour on the UFO (name of the boat).

Wonderfull & calm hidden spot

  • 4 of 5

The place and the tennants were very welcoming sharing their residence with us. It's a very beautiful little house hidden in the wilderness of Kaui nearby Na Pali coast and all its activities. Nature lovers will definitely enjoy this place.

Anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at the River House for our first ever trip to a Hawaiian Island for our anniversary and really enjoyed the peace and serenity of the apartment. We were very comfortable the entire week and loved the sounds of the river. The kitchen was adequately supplied for us to enjoy breakfast each morning and after trips to the farmer's market or local grocery store, we'd cook a nice dinner. The owners are very kind and care about your comfort but also leave you to enjoy your privacy. Their pets are absolutely darling and were fun to pet when they came around to visit! All in all, ours was a very peaceful and relaxing visit and we would definitely recommend it to those who are looking for something as far from a resort experience as possible!

I stayed here by myself for my birthday week and I loved it. The owners are very kind as well as the dog.

Everything is well equipped which eases the vacation. Very clean place. I enjoyed sleeping in the living room because you can sleep to the sound of the river. Very peaceful and I enjoyed it so much. I miss it :,( and I can't wait to go back someday.

Thank you for making my stay comfortable.
