    Historically home for the Hawaiians was not on the beach, they lived in the valleys where the weather was appealing, inspirational, serene. Legend has it that Reed’s Island, (original name “Koloiki”) was the playground of the Alii. You will be staying in what seems to be deep in a rain forest, but just a mile upriver of Hilo Bay, where a Hawaiian King spent his time.


    Guest comments from Honolulu - “Thank you, thank you, thank you! We have loved the experience of this magical place. The soothing cascades of the waterfalls, the falling rain, the calls of birds, the black rocks and so many colors of green just overload the senses and provide an unimagined tranquility. Steve told us of this paradise - but even he could not prepare us for this setting. From dawn to dark we have been captive and can only speak in low voices as if not to break the spell. Thank you for sharing this all with us. We leave with memories and feelings that will last forever. Much aloha”

    Reed's Island is a Hilo neighborhood where the wealthy built their homes in a bygone era, and it still holds that reputation today. You will enjoy a two and a quarter acre estate located at the very end of the island's only road, giving it the most prestigious and secluded setting on the island - “You will feel like being on a private island”.

    The Falls at Reed's Island is about 1 mile from old historic Hilo town and Hilo Bay “The Beautiful Bayside City”. The land is more vertical than horizontal, a sliver with about 700' of frontage on the Wailuku River, the largest river in the State. It is protected by a fragment of State land on its side away from the river, and the land across the river is ...

    First, this property is spectacular. Straight out of a Hollywood set. The grounds and house are tailor made for special events. The inside of the house can accommodate many tables and would be a beautiful venue. In addition, It’s definitely worth renting for a few days to experience the outside landscape. If you are planning to stay for more than a few days, (my husband and I stayed for eleven nights) there’s a few things worth mentioning. First, there is no real living room to hang out in. The house is composed of a kitchen and one bedroom on one end, and two bedrooms at the other end. All that is in between is a huge hallway/lanai with scant furnishings. Again, great for a lot of tables, but not a comfortable place to hang out. There is one couch on rollers, but it is more like a bed and uncomfortable if you are trying to sit in a regular position. It sits down the hall all by itself. If it is raining, which after all, it is Hilo, you are in perpetual dampness. So over all the lanai is not inviting. It has the feel of a meditation center without the cushions. Your other choice is sitting in the kitchen or hanging out in your bedroom on your bed. Be prepared for whatever weather has in store because the kitchen and bedrooms only have a wood structure with no insulation for heat or cold. However, there are fans for summer, but no heat/space heaters for the cold days. The last item to mention is the lighting. The lighting is dim at best. Frustrating if you are in the kitchen trying to prep a meal. You have to use lamps that are connected to the sink. So prep your meals before dark. In the rest of the house, it’s just dark and sadly dim. Even when it is still light outside. For the brides to be, bring your lighted makeup mirror. You’re going to need it day or night. In summary, the negative remarks ONLY apply if you want to have some hang time at a house that feels more like a home, kick back and watch TV and make meals. Otherwise, it’s a property not to be missed!

    Peaceful, exquisite setting with gorgeous private waterfalls an lush tropical forests. Just a short walk into town. The property is wonderful with everything you need for a relaxing vacation, including hot and cold soaking tubs. Well managed and appointed property. They even put out holiday dishes! Highly recommended! We hope to return again someday soon.

    This property is amazing. The hosts have thought about your every need. Please book this. Upon entering the property my husband and I got goosebumps looking at the view from the kitchen. Being able to go to sleep and wake up listening to frogs and the waterfall was surreal. The hosts truly go the extra mile to make this place a worry free paradise. I am so appreciative that they share this slice of heaven with other people. The stars at night are incredible. Being able to look at a rainbow from the soaking tubs. Jack and Jane thank you for making our 10th wedding anniversary amazing. It was so peaceful and relaxing we could have spent our entire vacation on the property. We loved everything about your home!

    The best place to go for tranquility and relaxation. Our initial plans of exploring the island was cut short because we wanted to stay back and enjoy this amazing property.
