HOMEAWAY'S TOP 10 ROMANTIC PROPERTIES IN THE WORLD - THE FALLS AT REED'S ISLAND

Hilo House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, sleeps 6

The Falls at Reed's Island located in Hilo's upscale enclave, Reed's Island, a mile from downtown Hilo. Perched at eye level to one of Hawaii's most beautiful waterfalls, and is flanked by the Wailuku River and rain forest. The Falls at Reed's Island features private bathrooms, hot-and-cold soaking tubs and views from every window.

Selected by Frommer’s as one of the 15 top picks, on the planet - properties with a view. Homeaway's top 10 romantic properties in the world, Concierge magazine Editors Pick. The Falls at Reed's Island, was also one of four properties featured in The New York Times - 'Secluded Retreats on the Big Island' and was featured on the TV special - 'Around the World in 80 Homes' produced by the Fine Living Channel.

Historically home for the Hawaiians was not on the beach, they lived in the valleys where the weather was appealing, inspirational, serene. Legend has it that Reed’s Island, (original name “Koloiki”) was the play ground of the Alii. Imagine staying in what seems to be deep in a rain forest, but just a mile up river of Hilo Bay, where a Hawaiian King spent his time.

Guest comments from Honolulu - “Thank you, thank you, thank you! We have loved the experience of this magical place. The soothing cascades of the waterfalls, the falling rain, the calls of birds, the black rocks and so many colors of green just overload the senses and provide an unimagined tranquility. Steve told us of this paradise - but even he could not prepare us for this setting. From dawn to dark we have been captive and can only speak in low voices as if not to break the spell. Thank you for sharing this all with us. We leave with memories and feelings that will last forever. Much aloha”

Reed's Island is a Hilo neighborhood where the wealthy built their homes in a bygone era, and it still holds that reputation today. The two and a quarter acre estate is located at the very end of the island's only road, giving it the most prestigious and secluded setting on the island - “feels like being on a private island”.

The Falls at Reed's Island is about 1 mile from old historic Hilo town and Hilo Bay “The Beautiful Bayside City”. The land is more vertical than horizontal, a sliver with about 700' of frontage on the Wailuku River, the largest river in the State. It is protected by a fragment of State land on its side away from the river, and the land across the river is protected by a conservation easement. When on the property, it seems deep in the rain forest, although it is really in downtown Hilo.

Amenities: Phone, laptop computer with DSL, cable TV, DVD, VCR, CD player, hot and cold soaking tubs, full kitchen, sub zero refrigerator, ice maker, kitchen aid range, dishwasher, two sinks, cooking utensils, all linens including beach towels, iron and ironing board, hair dryers, washer and dryer, Weber Gas BBQ.

Activities: Active volcano, hiking, biking, golfing, fitness center, horseshoes, fishing, horseback riding, shopping, restaurants, cinemas, museums, sightseeing, swimming, snorkeling & diving, boating, surfing.

Area: Located 10 min from the Hilo International Airport and 30 min from Volcanoes National Park.

Owners are Jack and Jane Stevenson. Jack is a fourth generation Hawaii resident. His great grandparents came from Germany in 1882, straight to Kauai. Jane has lived in Hawaii 52 years. They grew up on Oahu and spent 14 years on Kauai before moving to the Big Island when they purchased the property and created “The Falls at Reed's Island”. They have fallen in love with Hilo in the last ten years. Think that Hilo feels like Honolulu did in the fifties. They love the verdant green side of the Island and all the beautiful rivers and streams. They live in an historic house just five minutes from The Falls. Jack is very active in the Rotary Club of South Hilo. Jane spends time on historic preservation. Jack is an avid scuba diver, who only recently sold his dive boat.

Jack Stevenson purchased this house in 2002

The property was a private vacation home designed and built by two Architects, from San Francisco. Upon the death of one the property was put on the market. We purchased the property because of its simplistic beauty, and by the way it has a 25' waterfall right in the yard. Jane and I converted it to a vacation rental.
