Stayed in the guest house, which was perfect for exploring the North Shore. Very clean house, great kitchen, porch to have dinner and listen to the creek that flows by the house (which also will lull you to sleep). Mark may have a long-ish list of instructions, but it's clear he cares for the property and you quickly see that...

Mark has done a great job with his property. Very clean with all the amenities you would need. The AC is a nice touch for those humid nights. If you are looking for something that is off the beaten path, you need to give Mark's place a look. It really is a slice of paradise on the North Shore of...

We stayed at the Riverhouse from January 27th through February 5th. There were three of us and we each needed our own bedroom. I did a lot of research and finally settled on the Riverhouse. Once we got there and everyone gushed about how Beautiful, clean and perfect it was, I got to pat myself on the back. It was...

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...

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....

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.
