Overview

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 4 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: 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 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 4 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!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Met the owner/manager at the house after a late arrival in Hilo Friday night. After showing us around, we settled in for 3 nights. The sounds of the waterfall day and night, and the frogs at night, were magical. Wonderful deck to sit on and enjoy coffee while looking at and listening to the river. You feel so secluded yet are so close to town. I highly recommend this house for any large family. My only suggestion would be for the owner to stock some coffee and condiments for those who's flight arrives late in Hilo the night before and who really don't have a chance to hit a grocery store beforehand, but the airline schedule is certainly not the owners fault. Again, great stay!

Gorgeous View!!

  • 5 of 5

The views and sounds of the waterfalls and river were by far the best feature of the house. We opened all of the windows to fall asleep to the sounds of the river every night. The location in the town was perfect - secluded enough to feel like a real tropical vacation, but close enough to the grocery stores, restaurants, etc for convenience. The house was the perfect size for 6 adults - enough room to spread out or enjoy each others company at will. The only improvements needed would be an ipod compatible stereo system and a dvd player. Not huge drawbacks since we spent so much time out of the house. The property manager was amazing - she gave us great suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing. She recommended Pineapples restaurant - great food & local flavor, waiters even gave suggestions for best spots. We visited Waipio Valley rainforest & beach -the most beautiful beach my family had ever seen. Also, Papakolea - a green sand beach at the southern tip of the island - absolutely breathtaking. Both locations were definitely worth the hike. A car is essential to visit the best places, but it was worth it to see more of the island. When we went to Kona and saw all of the resort/touristy sights, we appreciated our secluded Hilo house even more.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the suggestion about the dvd player and ipod stereo, this is something I will bring up with the owner at our next meeting. I hope you can visit us again soon! Aloha!

Privacy near the heart of Hilo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this sumptuous house by the waterfall on Reed's Island. It's an easy house for a large group, with plenty of space for everyone. The surrounding water fall, and garden are beguiling --you really are in paradise. The sound of the falls is especially soothing, and we were lulled to sleep each night, along with the sound of the frogs! The outstanding artwork throughout the house, only amplified the enchantment of the house and surroundings. There are plenty of places to sit and eat, or sit and gaze at the falls. Free WiFi, smart TV, use of a washer and dryer, the garage, and a kitchen built for entertaining are definite pluses for this rental! Really enjoyed being able to leave the car at home and walk into town. The great thing about Hilo is that it doesn't smack of the tourist veneer that has befallen so much of the islands. There's are two good markets, as well as small places to go where locals eat. We'd like to see a few lamps, a complete set of pots, serving bowls, as well as a rice cooker added. We really appreciated the free coffee, as well as the condiments left in the fridge! Throughout the whole process of renting, we found Kari and Kristie to be very responsive managers, who communicated quickly and courteously. This is definitely a place to return to!

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 Kari and Kristie

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.
