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, herbal teas, cream and sugar 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 $125.00. There is an extra guest fee after 2 guests of $35 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!

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.

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.

Perfect rental with incredible view

Everything was great and it was as advertised. The setting overlooking the waterfall was very special. The house in a great location near downtown Hilo and in a nice residential neighborhood. We felt very safe and enjoyed the sounds from the river. Great stay, attentive service!

BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 4 of 5
I would first like to thank Kristie and Kari for being so attentive and responsive to us from the very beginning. Communication was prior to arriving at the waterfall retreat was outstanding! I truly appreciated that. The payment operation made it so very easy for us and kept us on track on when and how to pay.....another very good aspect. The house is BEAUTIFUL, the view is BREATHTAKING, and the neighbors were so KIND and always waved as the passed....but then again, being originally from Hilo, that's what I miss most about Hilo is the genuineness of the people. True Aloha Spirit resides in Hilo. The house was very well equipped with what made me and my party feel like "luxury" styled necessities (shampoo, body wash, lotion, etc.). It truly was a great week and truly a beautiful stay. The reason why I could not give it 5 stars and make the review perfect is there were a few improvements that could have been made, especially for guests who were required to stay there for 7 days per contract. We know that we cannot change mother nature, but even with all the windows in the house open, the house got REALLY hot at times, mostly bearable, but a few air conditioning systems or big window openings (for air circulation) might make for a much more comfortable stay for guests, especially on HOT nights. Because our party included 22 people, we had to split the group and have 8 of us stay here.....it was perfect, however, 8 of us had to make hula skirts and had A LOT of ti-leaves left, we didn't know what to do with them. Partially our fault, we forgot to ask about garbage disposal. We found the trash bins on the front-side of the house, but 15 bags of garbage accumulated throughout the week was not going to fit into 4 garbage bins. We do understand that our party had more than the usual amount of garbage because of our purpose, but we left feeling bad that their was so much garbage and didn't know what to do with it. For that I would like to apologize to Kristie and Kari. And last, when we arrived, we were told that we are NOT to use the hot tub.....it was a high selling point for me in reserving the house. We purposely put our helpers, runners, and workers in this house and hoped for some relaxation in the evening, but alas, no hot tub working! I must say however, I would still HIGHLY recommend this house. The things that we had concerns with EASILY and QUICKLY disappeared once we settled in. WE HOPE YOU INVITE US BACK NEXT YEAR! MAHALO NUI!!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Robert! Thank you for your review! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. As you mentioned about the hot tub, I am sorry that we no longer offer it as an amenity and we have removed this feature from our listing. I'm also sorry that the home was uncomfortable hot during your stay, we will take this to heart but I aside from the ceiling fans I am not sure if we will install AC yet. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again!

The house was clean, well kept, and had a beautiful view. There was plenty of space throughout the house for a family to stay comfortably. The neighborhood was quiet and felt safe. Check in/out was extremely easy!
