About Jack Stevenson
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 over 50 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 fell in love with Hilo immediately. 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 2004
Why Jack Stevenson chose Hilo
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.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We feel so rejuvenated after our stay at this unforgettable property. We loved watching the waterfall, walking in the gardens, and soaking in the outdoor tubs. Undoubtedly this is best place to stay in the Hilo area and we will definitely be back.
Simple- Stay here!
Super unique property makes for a once in a lifetime experience. It's like staying in a treehouse in Costa Rica, but with a manicured lawn, and your own private waterfall. We are so lucky that the owner has decided to share it with the world. I almost felt guilty walking amongst the other tourists knowing that we were staying at the best rental property by far on this side of the island. Thank you for the memories!
Truly enjoyed our time here. Didn’t think it was possible, but seeing the property in person is even more impressive. The surroundings come alive at night with sounds of nature. Owner Jack is very accessible and helpful. Wonderful place for a retreat - with a waterfall in your backyard!
An interesting house in a lovely location
Our family spent a week in this beautiful and elegantplace. Very private, interesting design and plenty of space to do your own thing or spend time together. Owner was very responsive and all in all we had a very pleasant time here.
Wonderful vacation home
This home is as close to living outside as you can get. While the bedrooms and kitchen area have large windows that close, the living room and wide hallway are just screened in. This makes for a wonderful way to enjoy the rain forest without the bugs! The home is so close to town but feels like it is miles away. It is totally isolated from any other property. Of course the waterfall view is the highlight.
The house was extremely clean and we had no issues with bugs. While the coqui frogs were noisy I didn’t have any problem sleeping with the windows open. Earplugs were provided if you felt like you needed them.
Overall this home truly did live up to my expectations and I will certainly come again if I have the opportunity.
True Jungle Experience!
It was truly a once in a lifetime property. It’s absolutely secluded, GORGEOUS, had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, close to town, and the owners were extremely responsive. Enjoy the frogs at night, that million dollar view of the waterfalls, and your private paradise.
East side of the Big Island, Hawaii. Great location for visits to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
