Beautiful location nestled between the mouth of the river and the ocean at Honolii Beach. The River House is a rustic family style home which has 180 degree views starting with the river then panning out over the ocean and is only 5 minutes from Hilo.
Enjoy your morning coffee in the living room or lanai looking out at the river or the ocean! Have a picnic on the lawn in the magnificent nature Hawaii is known for.
You can enjoy from the River House all sorts of water sports including Kayaking, Stand-Up Paddling, Surfing, Boogie Boarding and Swimming.
The home will sleep 12 and has an open floor plan. The kitchen has old world charm with copper counter tops and a butcher block counter by the stove. The rear of the house has a very large family room and bay windows. Perfect for a traveling halau for practice and sleeping! (The family room measures approximately 375 sf or approximately 25 feet long by 15 feet deep and also sleeps 6.) The view of the river is astonishing from these windows!
The first floor has a guest bedroom; this room sleeps 2 and has a queen size bed. Also located on the first floor is a powder room and full bath and a large Bedroom with 3 double beds. The master and another guest bedroom are upstairs. The master bedroom is very large with sweeping views of the river and ocean and an en suite full bath. A king size bed is in both the master bedroom and guest bedroom upstairs.
Awesome! Gorgeous, huge, comfortable house. Amazing location, views and sounds of the ocean and Honolii River.
Absolutely unique and charming home perfect for a large group.
The home & property had everything we needed for our staff retreat. Beautiful, would stay again
This is a property that was meant for tranquility and family fun.
The location and simplicity of the house is outstanding. Windows, fresh air and natural light fill the house during the day. Being able to walk right into the ocean from the property and walk right out with an outdoor shower waiting is incredibly cool. Whether you surf yourself or enjoy watching, this is one of the better breaks in all of Hilo. The surfers were all friendly and inviting. Not intimidating and territorial like some beaches in SoCal. Minutes from downtown Hilo with great grocery stores and restaurants and in close proximity to Volcano National Park made this a great home base for our two families who shared the house. Turn off the electronics and come stay in the non-commercialized, nature's resort! Aloha
We couldn't have asked for a better location for our vacation on the Big Island. We were two families (9 people) staying together in the house, which proved to be even more spacious than it looks in the photos. Everyone had ample room to themselves. And so many bathrooms! The house was well-stocked with everything we needed and the view of the river and the ocean are breathtaking. I was a little nervous about traffic noise, being so close to the overpass, but it wasn't an issue at all. This place is a little piece of heaven. We would rent it again in a heartbeat.
My friends and I had a wonderful trip. It was everything we'd expected and hoped for. The house is fascinating with spacious rooms and beautiful views. I do wish I'd brought a book to leave on the shelves, as the collection is rather eclectic and fun to browse through. Kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, utensils, glasses, even wine glasses. There is a table and umbrella out back which was nice to sit under when it rained. There are box fans near the laundry room which help to move air through the house if it gets muggy.
The beach isn't *as* accessible as I thought it would be; you've got to go up to the street and back down a stair case to get there (or swim across the mountain-runoff river). You will see surfers from the front yard as most of the beach that they have access to is rocky rather than sandy and surfable. Still boasts a beautiful view in every direction. I worried that the highway above would be loud but the rain and the ocean were louder. The car traffic noise wasn't a problem at all.
Absolutely gorgeous property and I very sincerely hope to stay there again. Most memorable vacation yet!
