Stayed from Thanksgiving to 1st week in December. Loved every moment! Ended up with back injury that had me laying flat for most of visit and this home made it possible to enjoy the time as much as possible due to the beauty of the home, the quiet of the rural area and the beauty of the views of treetops...

Peace-filled, kind, comforting. Symphony of baritone frog, strident roosters, and quiet--no sound--surround you. The yard is very pleasant in the morning. Sit by the slow clear stream while birds feast on guava and java fruit (which sometimes plunk into the river), enjoy the flap of banana tree leaves across the road, or practice tai chi. The tall ti plants with...

There has been so much said about River Estate that any superlatives I might add are just added verbiage. All I might add is this. If you do not stay here, you're doing yourself a huge disservice. While trying to submit this review it seems I must add more characters. Let me add, if I must. Mark is awesome. The...

The property is as advertised and can be a great location depending on your activities. Hanalei is a bit expensive so you are better to pick up groceries at Walmart near the air port. We loved the beaches there and the extras that Mark left for us, beach chairs & boogie boards. The kitchen area/living area was a bit dark...

We had such a great time staying at the Guest House at River Estate and two months later, we still dream of the great times we had celebrating our 10th anniversary in Kauai after a 5-year gap since our last trip. The owner (Mark) was great to work with and very accommodating when we ran into a couple of hurdles,...

I just returned from my annual (at least) pilgrimage to River Estate and Guest House...I've lost count how many times I've stayed at Guest House but at this point I know I left a dozen behind a few trips ago. If you want to experience the true true island lifestyle, get personalized treatment and amenities a hotel can't touch (and...

We loved Kauai but would not return to this location. What worked: - Great location for north shore activities like snorkeling and hiking Na Pali trail. - House is very clean and kitchen well-stocked with appliances - Plenty of hot water. Great water pressure - Pleasantly landscaped setting with stream nearby - Good wifi and free phone - Feels private...

Reviews are a fact of life now. I think it's obvious this person probably would never have been happy. That being said there are a couple of issues that I will agree on. I was inattentive to their needs prior to arrival due to six weeks down with bronchitis twice for a period of 6 weeks out in the period...

If you've just landed at Lihui airport and can't wait to go south to Poipu with its popular beaches, arid climate, sea vistas unbroken by the soggy jungle mountains to the north, plenty of like-minded other visitors to get to know and socialize with, and numerous resorts to choose from, River Estate probably isn't for you. Located in Haena, Mark's...

We stayed at The Guesthouse at River Estate over Thanksgiving week 2012. It has everything you could possibly need, is in the middle of Kauai's amazing north shore, yet is tucked up in the jungle alongside the river making for a perfectly private, secluded retreat. Listening to the river while drifting to sleep after a day spent hiking/surfing/snorkeling at the...

We wanted to stay on the north end of Kauai and had stayed at the Sheraton 26 years ago so we wanted to rent a house or something more rural. This place fit the bill. It is almost to the end of the road up north, but near to town. The house was very clean, modern, and we loved the...
