River Estate was just what we needed after 10 days in New York. The tranquil setting on the river was a lovely place to unwind and relax. The house itself is well equipped with a great kitchen and living spaces, comfortable bed and furniture. I highly recommend staying in this beautiful setting. Thanks for having us, Mark!

We stayed at the River House in August 2016 with two teenage boys and had an absolutely terrific stay! The north end of Hanalei is the place to be, and while the house is secluded in the perfect way for "non-touristy" types, it's accessible to everything. Turning off the double-bridge onto the estate lane is such a fun and pretty... More

Our family of four spent the week at River estate in March 2016. The house was very peaceful and located beside a small stream in a very private setting. The best feature was the location.

My family (husband, wife, 2 teenagers) stayed at the Guest House during Christmas week 2015. We had a fabulous time. The house is very nicely furnished with everything you might need for a week's stay (or longer!). We loved the secluded location, as we are definitely the non-touristy type, but beaches, activities, sightseeing, etc. are all easily accessible by car.... More

River Estate is a little piece of paradise! I am particular about where I stay, and I have been returning to River Estate for over 12 years now.

First day we arrived there is a note stating the air conditioning is broken. He states he will try and get the unit fixed before our stay ends (in 5 days) and WITHOUT any specific day it will be repaired. Not a big deal for us.
