Hilo House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom 3 Bath Home Perched Above Hilo's Most Spectacular Wailuku Falls

ALOHA!

The breathtaking Waterfall Retreat at Reed’s Island is a spectacular 3 bedroom, 3 bath home in the exclusive area of Reed’s Island in Hilo. The home is only a few minutes from downtown Hilo but it feels like a private paradise retreat with a stunning river and falls right outside your window. The tropical rainforest views, Wailuku river and falls and natural beauty make this home a one-of-a-kind vacation destination.

This home has many luxury features: An enclosed executive office with stunning views and 2 work areas to accommodate those who want to work and relax. The living room has large windows and sliding doors that showcase the extraordinary rainforest with picturesque views of the waterfall and Wailuku river. You may enjoy your meals in front of waterfall out on the lanai, a relaxing area on the 700 sq ft pinewood deck.

While you are on the lanai, you may enjoy the view of the well-landscaped tropical garden, the colorful flowers and plants, feel the tender-green, soft Korean Grass, and listening to nature’s symphony: the tree-frog’s greeting, the waterfall flowing and the birds singing.

Kitchen is stocked with dishes and cookware for any cooking enthusiast. Coffee and herbal teas provided for guests. The bathrooms are furnished with clean and new linens, soap, shampoo, conditioner and hair dryer.

Other amenities include large flat screen tv, washer and dryer and parking for 3-4 cars.

Relax and stay here at the magical Waterfall Retreat at Reed’s island, an experience that you will treasure for the rest of your life.

From the house, you can walk to downtown Hilo where there are a variety of restaurants, the best farmer’s market in Hawaii, Hilo Public Library, post office, and churches. A few minutes drive to Liliuokalani Garden, Banyan Drive, Coconut Island, approximately 3 minutes to Rainbow Falls, 14 minutes to Hilo Airport, 16 minutes to the well-known Nani Mau Botanical Garden, 20 minutes to Akaka Falls, and 30 minutes to Hawaii’s Volcano National Park

The home will not be shared with any other guests and the home is used exclusively as a vacation rental.

The one time cleaning fee for the house is $175.00. There is an extra guest fee after 3 guests of $30 per person per night.

The WATERFALLS RETREAT at Reed's Island is cared for by sisters, Kristie and Kari and we live a few minutes up the street from the home. As our guests, we would be happy to help you find the best places to visit and we look forward to helping make your stay as comfortable as possible. Please feel free to inquire if you have any questions. Thank you!

Guests may call us at any time if there are problems with the home. Guests may call or contact us with questions about the place or places to visit at any reasonable time. The managers live 5 minutes away from the property.

The neighborhood is minutes from downtown Hilo but because of its private and exclusive location, you feel like you are in a distant and tropical retreat.

There is parking for 3-4 cars.

Please note, there is a hot tub on premises but it is not working and it is not offered as an amenity. The home is also located on a cliff overlooking a river. There is a partial area that is not fenced.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved the house from the moment we walked in and enjoyed this beautiful house thoroughly! It’s on a quiet lane of homes yet so conveniently close to Hilo town, farmers’ markets, and other activities. We enjoyed cooking in the gorgeous kitchen, and dining in the house and on the deck. It was so nice to just sit on the deck and watch the Wailuku river flow by – we will always remember the beautiful waterfalls! The photos on the website accurately portray this lovely house, which is charming and beautiful, immaculate, so comfortably furnished, with a well equipped kitchen. The entire house is so tastefully decorated. Kristie’s paintings are especially beautiful, adding the island touch. Our hosts were always there for us. George contacted us as soon as we booked, offering any assistance, and Kristie was so kind as to accommodate our very early arrival with a warm greeting, and was always available, responding quickly to any questions we had. We certainly look forward to a return visit!

Gorgeous Home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved it here! We invited our neighbors from home for a surprise. We were all deliriously happy that we stayed in this home. Everything was perfect! The stream lulled everyone asleep each evening and we loved having cocktails in the evening on the beautiful deck. We have stayed in lots of VRBOs over the years in many locations, and this one was outstanding. We will come back for sure. Our only wish was that we could have used the spa and we wanted to barbeque. We made due without and had a wonderful time anyway. Thank you Kristine and Kari! This was a fantastic trip.

Owner's Response: Hi Deborah,

I'm glad you enjoyed you stay even without the spa and BBQ. Thank you for being respectful for the owner's wishes to not use the spa and BBQ. You were a wonderful guest and the house was spotless when you left. You are more then welcome to come and stay with us again.

Aloha

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
Such a beautiful home, well laid out. The sight and sounds of the waterfall provided a soothing backdrop. The location was great. I am originally from Hilo and have lots of family there but wanted to give my family the perfect vacation feel while at home visiting, we only get back every 5 - 6 years so this was important to me. The young lady that met me was great and very courteous. This review is given an excellent rating even though there was one seemingly small point of concern, insignificant for some but a sticking point for us. The advertised flat screen didn't work and wasn't able to be replaced until the day we were to leave. however, the free WiFi made up for it and we got to watch the Huskers on the laptop, and our favorite biker (sitcom/drama) on there as well.
The bottom line is it's a beautiful spacious home that we felt so comfortable in, i hated to leave. This is a vacation that we will remember for years and when we re-tell this story today the beautiful home on the falls is at the top of that discussion. Thank you.

Great location, beautiful back deck and waterfall

  • 4 of 5
The waterfall is beautiful but very loud so does take some getting use to. Our family stayed for 5 days in Early August during Hurricane Iselle. Property owner was very nice and called us periodically to check in during the storm. House was pleasant but a little dated, the cleaning was not so thorough as the sheets in one of the bedrooms. Only two of the bedrooms have beds (2 double and King) and third bedroom is a nice big office. There was lots of rain and wind, but no damage. The waterfall behind the house roared during the day of the Hurricane but subsided to the normal roar. Overall great location, 5 minutes from downtown, Rainbow falls, and surfer beach. Pleasant stay overall.

Overall pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5
My family and I stayed here the later part of June to early July. We really enjoyed having our morning coffee on the outside deck overlooking the gorgeous waterfall. Very quiet property.

The property managers were very responsive. The house seemed a little stuffy for us and they immediately bought us new fans, which really helped. The house could have used a little maintenance updating though, for instance, the screens had holes enabling bugs to get into the house and Hilo is naturally buggy. We patched the holes with duct tape. Also, the carpets could use a good steam cleaning-- lots of stains.

Otherwise, we had a pleasant stay at this house and it fit our family nicely.

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home and setting! You want to be in the house and enjoy the scenery from every window. Even it does not have AC, its very cool, you will sleep like a baby. You feel you are in a jungle. Hopefully will be staying there again in my next visit. The only thing, when we arrive, they told us we could not use jacuzzi, even though it seems working fine.
