Rae was very welcoming and brought in two beautiful orchids (one smelled like chocolate) and a bowl of papayas after I arrived. Great location, within walking distance of restaurants and shops in downtown Hilo, and in a nice residential neighborhood. The little ground floor apartment has lots of character, is immaculately clean, and is decorated in rustic Hawaiian style with bamboo screens on the walls, woven floor mats, vintage bamboo furniture and original paintings of Hawaiian landscapes. Enjoyed a relaxing sauna the first evening and cool down while viewing the night sky and listening to the frogs - beautiful! This is really a very special place - Rae and her partner Glen are both talented healers.
Good big place near downtown, Rae did host me short notice for a day on the East side of the Big Island, warm welcome and easy communication.
This was a great place to stay on our brief visit to Hilo- located next to a beautiful river and a short walk to all the restaurants! Rae has a nice, lush garden in the front and it feels very cozy on her property.
Rae was very nice and even upgraded us to a larger place as it was available. She was very reliable with coordination and such as well as we weren't sure what time we would be at the place. The place was very clean and comfortable and she provided some yummy snacks that were much needed after a long flight from the east coast!
Fun, funky, & close to town. Rae was very accommodating, and the outdoor shower was great: like being in a jungle in town. The room was furnished with original artwork and had everything I might have needed.
Rae is a personable , nice lady. enjoyed her. I was on business so location was important to be just a few blocks to the coast perimeter road. brief walk to main town area. I had the detached studio with own bath. It's older but clean, and just fine for privacy too. River / water sound from across street. I try various places and hotels...and would go back
Rae was a wonderful host, who was flexible even as our dates shifted. Her home was perfectly located by the beautiful river, and right in downtown Hilo. The room we stayed in was spotlessly clean, and very comfortable! We can't wait to come back.
Great hosts, nice room, and a very nice location.
We stayed at the Riverbend House in the Garden Studio for one night in August 2014. Rae and Glen were very welcoming hosts and made us feel at home. The house is relatively easy to find and is located close to the center of Hilo while still being in a quiet neighborhood. Parking nearby is easy.
While we liked the Riverbend House and appreciated the great hosts, we did not love the Garden Studio. It is in a side walk-in basement with an outdoor shower. The room is a little cramped--although it has nice amenities like a fridge and a hot plate. It can get a little noisy and somewhat stuffy. They provide a mosquito net for the bed, but it is tough to keep the mosquitos out of the rest of the room.
Still, this is a room in a nice home for a good price. It just wasn't the best fit for us.
Wonderful hosts, very kind and caring. Everything is clean and the house is conveniently located in walking distance to Hilo's center. Definitely recommend staying with Rae and Glenn!
It was great to stay with Rae in Hilo. Lovely spot, cute room, nice big open space for morning yoga. Would definitely stay there again.
