About Aldo Rombi

Bay Area Family who enjoys the wonderful outdoors that America offers us! We take pride in the upkeep of The Hiouchi House. It offers us and all its guests incredible insight into what life is like within the Smith river basin and old growth forests that surround.

Aldo Rombi purchased this house in 2003

Why Aldo Rombi chose North Coast California

Wild and Scenic Smith River Located just upstream from Jed Smith State Park and Stout Grove. The property is situated right in the middle of all the State and National forests within the community of Hiouchi. With limited homes on the riverfront, and most importantly with easy access to the river, The Hiouchi house has it all. They just do not make them like this anymore!

What makes this house unique

Privacy, Fishing, Hiking, Biking, Swimming, Relaxing!

Oh yes and privacy!

Amazing home on the Smith River

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Hiouchi House; an amazing home on the Smith River. The house was located a few miles from Howland Hill Rd. / Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park and a 10-15 minute drive to Crescent City. The house was very comfortable and we had plenty of space. We visited the Stout Grove and hiked both the Mill Creek and Boy Scout trails in the State Park. In addition, we did a full-day kayaking trip down the Smith River, which was beautiful. My kids really enjoyed spending time by the river. Thank you for sharing your home; my family had a wonderful stay / adventure. Personally I would like to return to catch salmon one day.

This property is an awesome place for a family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the large deck was great! There's a large dining room table which was nice for family dinners and a place for four in the kitchen. The kitchen was well stocked and had nice appliances. Everyone had a great time!

Beautiful place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 young kids met with my parents and siblings at the Hiouchi House this July. The house had plenty of room for all of us and comfortable living areas. We ate dinner out on the porch all 3 nights and spent lots of time playing by the river with our 3 and 6 year-old. We all loved the beautiful river setting!

Absolutely Amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First we were contacted by Johnny personally to see if we needed an earlier check in, we did not but it was a very nice gesture. When we arrived we were greeted by a welcome sign with our name on it (we had to take pictures <3) The house was very clean upon our arrival, It was absolutely perfect in every way, we all started running to the bedrooms to claim our rooms. I was last in and was able to get a daybed with my son which was very comfortable - it folded out to a very large bed for the both of us.

Johnny greeted us immediately in person and introduced himself, he saw that we had a nine year old and he said "Ill be back with a few rafts for the river" - awww man that was a big hit, my son loved it (even though the water was coooold) :) and so did my husband. Our breath was taken away by the view of the Smith River in the back yard! I got up early the first morning to take pictures of anything and everything since this was my very first time in California (I am a budding photographer) I was sitting on the back deck looking across the river when I noticed 2 River Otters swimming to the other side of the creek and then climbed up the bank of rocks, SCORE!!!!!! How awesome is that? This house and property was perfect, it even has a little quiet area on the side of the property that I was able to observe many birds - even a California Quail. This needs to be my permanent residence let me tell ya :) This house is also adjacent to the best park to view the Coast Redwoods - It is Jedadiah State Park, no need to travel any further or waste your time going to any other forest for these awesome redwoods!!! We also traveled the 101 coastal North and South and the ocean is very close to this location. In just a few minutes drive we were able to view Sea Lions and Seals in Crescent City, plus many waterfowl species! I forgot to mention we viewed an Osprey with a fish in its talons flying over the Smith River. Thank you for letting us stay in this amazing house - it is on my bucket list to come back soon.

Beautiful location; fantastic family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic week at The Hiouchi House! Johnny was extremely helpful. From the personalized welcome sign and inviting location, we couldn't have asked for a better home base. The pictures do not represent the true beauty of the Smith River. There are so many adventures located within a short drive from the house. If you are considering a trip to this area, do not miss the opportunity to stay at The Hiouchi House!
