Hilo House Rental Photos and Description

Aloha Falls presents an ideal setting for a romantic honeymoon or anniversary celebration as well as a complete accommodation for your whole family (8 people or more). Aloha Falls is located in the private, upscale, and timelessly beautiful neighborhood called Reed's Island right in Hilo town. Unique to Aloha Falls is access to the waterfall and swimming area where you have so much more than just a view. The view is stunning and the waterfall sounds fill the house. The home is well cared for and the yard is manicured as a lush tropical jungle, which includes bananas, bamboo, passion fruit, and more.

Here at Aloha Falls, You are in the perfect place to go to the famous Hilo farmers market and walk down our private neighborhood to all the lovely shops of Hilo. It is a 30 min drive to Volcano National Park and a 1 hr drive to the summit of Mauna Kea. Beautiful black sand beaches just across Hilo town. Botanical gardens all along the Hamakua coast are close by and a world attraction! Many past guests comment that they wish they had chosen to spend more time at Aloha Falls exploring the east side of Hawaii Island.

Aloha Falls itself is a world attraction- you don't actually have to go anywhere. In fact, many guests prefer to spend their days relaxing on the lanai, tuned into the peaceful aspects of the natural tropical surroundings. Aloha Falls was built by a craftsman- custom cabinetry and close attention to detail are apparent throughout the entire home. Temperpedic style queen size beds and the lullaby of the waterfall create a superbly restFull sleep! Many guests comment on their incredible quality of sleep while staying here. Giant tile showers make bathing a luxurious experience.

We welcome you to explore tropical island foods in your fully stocked kitchen. Rest all day on your sweet lanai perched above the valley and the waterfall. Explore the famous Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots~all in walking distance. The entire neighborhood of Reed's Island is highly private and secluded surrounded by waterfalls and lush Hawaiian jungle. Reed's Island was once reserved for Hawaiian royality and the street is named after beloved Princess Kaiulani.

Reserve just the upstairs for travellers with 1-4 people or expand into the downstairs "zen den" if you are traveling with the rest of your family and friends. The Zen Den provides you with an additional 2 bedrooms, both with queen size beds, a full bathroom with a deep soaking tub, and plenty of open living space.The Zen Den is themed with yoga props and books, incense, Hawaiiana, candles and more to encourage your state of inner peace and relaxation.

The standard rate applies for 2 guests reserving the upstairs portion of Aloha Falls. The use of the Zen Den requires an additional fee of $100+/ night depending on how many guests are in your party. Please inquire for a precise quote. Please note that the Zen Den is available for larger groups of travelers, therefore if you do not reserve it, it will be vacant, allowing for your maximum level or privacy (unless otherwise discussed at time of booking).

You will be welcomed with complimentary coffee, tea, soap, mac nuts and chocolates ~ all locally made!

About Sierra Sugrue

Aloha! I am so honored and excited to share Aloha Falls with you. It is my dream of Hawaiian beauty and spirit. The past decade of my life has been spent nurturing the land here on the Big Island and pursuing the wisdom of various healing arts, including: massage, energy medicine, yoga, and plant medicine. My partner Troy and I focus much of our attention on creating the beauty of Aloha Falls.

Sierra Sugrue purchased this house in 2009

Why Sierra Sugrue chose Hilo

Hilo is the most gorgeous place in all of Hawaii! It is a sweet historic town with locally owned shops and modern comforts. The land is lush thanks to nightly rain fall. Waterfalls and black sand beaches are everywhere, along with an abundance of farms growing exotic organic produce! It was my dream to find a place in Hilo and Aloha Falls is located on the exclusive neighborhood called Reed's Island.

What makes this house unique

The view and sound of the waterfall made this home absolutely perfect. Also, the attention to detail in building.. All of the furniture, cabinetry, and artwork are handcrafted and locally produced. There are feelings of simplicity, peace, and profound elegance here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything about this house is amazing! From the waterfall in the backyard to the sounds of creatures waking up at night! We enjoyed all of the animals we saw (except for the mosquitoes) and the geckos are everywhere! Even in the house a few times! Some places I suggest trying to visit are Akaka FAlls, the most active volcano in the world (at night its amazing to see the orange glow but make sure to bundle up because it gets cold), snorkeling in Kona - it was great. Overall this was amazing and the house is gorgeous! Thank you!

I can't wait to go back.

The house and property are even nicer than it looks in the photos. The house is very clean. There has been a lot of attention to detail for the comfort and convenience of the guests. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals. The normal condiments are provided. There was even a large pitcher of herb infused cold water in the fridge. There are towels, hair dryers, etc. You really don't need anything but your clothing to go there and enjoy the stay.

The home is located in a residential area, but it is so secluded due to the waterfall and lush vegetation, you feel that you have arrived in a rain forest. There are coqui that sing you to sleep at night, along with the sounds of the waterfall in the distance. Amazing. The beds are incredibly comfortable. We even had tempurpedic style pillows on the beds.

The location is very centrally located. It took about 10-15 minutes to get there from the airport. Town is just a few minutes away by car. Nearby is Rainbow falls (you could actually walk there from the house). About an hour away (or a bit less) are the volcanoes and other waterfalls (Akaka). The town of Hilo is not large and busy like Honolulu. It is very welcoming and relaxing. The people are incredibly friendly.

During our stay, there was quite a bit of rain. Apparently, Hilo is located on the 'wet' side of the island. No matter - if it was raining to hard to go out, we were perfectly happy to sit in the hammock chairs on the enclosed/screened in and covered back deck while sipping tea :) The house/property were as much of a vacation as the surrounding sites. Another plus - because it rained frequently, we had a lot of wet clothing. We were very thankful for the washer and dryer available for use in the house.

We were fortunate to meet the owner of the property. She is a lovely person and really tries hard to make sure the guest are comfortable.

I am starting to save up now to make a return trip. This was one of the best vacations we have ever taken! You will return from you stay fully refreshed - it really is impossible to get stressed in this location:)

What a beautiful home, the waterfall and pond in the backyard was amazing. I miss falling asleep to the croak of the Coqui frogs every night. It was a incredible experience in a very convenient location. The house itself was very comfortable, we had everything we needed. Our group had 4 adults and 4 kids and we all had great night sleeps. I would love to stay here again if we come back.

This is the third consecutive year that we stayed at Sierra's Aloha Falls home for the Merrie Monarch Festival week, and we enjoyed our stay immensely! The house is so beautiful, relaxing, and comforting! It has become a home away from home for us. There are many new improvements and upgrades to the property that elevates it's value. My wife's favorite part of the house is the huge walk-in closet in the master bedroom; my favorite part is the master bedroom's large tiled shower. It's beautiful! Everyone loves the covered lanai that looks over the beautiful waterfall and freshwater pond. Thank you, Sierra, for allowing us to stay at your wonderful home. We appreciate it tremendously! Sending our love!

Happy Alaskans

  • 5 of 5

This house is AMAZING! We stayed for a week with extended family and there was plenty of room for the 6 adults and one toddler. The screened in porch overlooking the waterfall was perfect for chilling after a busy day of sight seeing and I loved that I didn't have to worry about our toddler falling off a cliff. We walked into town for the farmer's markets and yet were far enough away that we never heard anything at night besides the calming water and happy tree frogs. With the house cost divided by 3 families the stay was incredibly economical and it's set up perfectly to allow for easy relaxing, cooking and spending quality time on the island. We can't say enough positive things about this home! Thank you Sierra for being so wonderful to work with and we hope to stay with you again in the future!

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is just as advertised, we had a wonderful time. From sitting on the lanai enjoying the sounds and view of the waterfall, to trekking down to the lagoon for a swim in your own tropical paradise! I guess we got lucky because none of us met any mosquitos, it was rainy during our stay,but sleeping to the sounds of the frogs and the rain was incredibly relaxing. I will recommend this vacation rental to all my friends, and we are already planning a return trip in the near future!

Car: recommended

The sweetest neighborhood on the Big Island- Reed's Island. ~ Previously reserved for Hawaiian Ali'i (royalty). It is surrounded by waterfalls and lush rain forest. An island on the island. Downtown yet totally private. Walk to shops, market, waterfalls, and caves. Or just rest here all day long by your own waterfall spring. Pamper yourself with spa services. The options are infinite- this is your unique experience and you deserve to have it all!!!

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Yoga, Adventure
