Description of the Hilo vacation home rental
The Falls at Reed's Island located in Hilo's upscale enclave, Reed's Island, a mile from downtown Hilo. Perched at eye level to one of Hawaii's most beautiful waterfalls, and is flanked by the Wailuku River and rain forest. The Falls at Reed's Island features private bathrooms, hot-and-cold soaking tubs and views from every window.

Selected by Frommer's as one of the 15 top picks, on the planet - properties with a view. Selected top 10 romantic properties in the world, Concierge magazine Editors Pick. The Falls at Reed's Island, was also one of four properties featured in The New York Times - 'Secluded Retreats on the Big Island' and was featured on the TV special - 'Around the World in 80 Homes' produced by the Fine Living Channel.

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 play ground of the Alii. Imagine staying in what seems to be deep in a rain forest, but just a mile up river 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. The two and a quarter acre estate is located at the very end of the island's only road, giving it the most prestigious and secluded setting on the island - feels 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 protected by a conservation easement. When on the property, it seems deep in the rain forest, although it is really in downtown Hilo.

Amenities: Phone, wifi, cable TV, DVD, VCR, CD player, hot and cold soaking tubs, full kitchen, sub zero refrigerator, ice maker, kitchen aid range, dishwasher, two sinks, cooking utensils, all linens including beach towels, iron and ironing board, hair dryers, washer and dryer, Weber Gas BBQ.
