You already know that Reed's Island is the absolute best address in Hilo There are houses ( nice ones ) listed here for rent and getting great reviews. But do you really need to spend $ 400 to $ 600 per night to stay here? - if you are only a couple that is way more than you need to spend for a wonderful experience.
Although this apartment is attached to a larger house, it is NOT a private room in a house. It is a completely independent and separate private apartment which shares nothing with the main house - it has a totally separate and private entrance. Has its own private large bathroom and kitchenette. There is no part which is shared with the main house. This B&B is newly on the market, all new construction, and a Terrific location - check it out.
The space is 520 sq ft in size, with a new queen size bed. There is air conditioning in the bedroom if you need it - seldom required in Hilo.The kitchen area is a kitchenette, no full size oven and full size rangetop - but rather a compact rangetop, a convection oven, toaster, blender, full coffee grinding and preparing gear, an outdoor propane grill, full size refrigerator, pots, pans, dishes and cutlery. Really everything you will need. There is a clothes washer and clothes dryer. There is a large HD TV, with cable and streaming Netflix and Amazon movies. WiFi internet.
Reeds Island is the best location in Hilo It is where the Hawaiian royalty chose to live - our street, Kaiulani St, is named after princess Kaiulani who resided here. It is also where the wealthy landowners of old Hawaii chose to live. It is very private and secluded, cut off from the rest of Hilo by being on an Island in the Wailuku River. The road is a dead end, so traffic here is very low. It is totally surrounded by thick jungle - you cannot see any of Hilo and hear nothing but nature sounds. And yet - it is so close to old downtown Hilo that you can walk there if you wish, in only 15 minutes (3 minutes by car ).
Our apartment is the only rental that we have. It is newly constructed, on the ground floor attached to our home. Your door opens directly to view the primary lower waterfall on the Wailuku River, just downstream from the famous Rainbow Falls. This waterfall is directly outside of your door, about 50 feet below the apartment - gorgeous!
Business professional. Long time Hawaii resident -very familiar with most of Hawaii.
What a wonderful place! Quiet, peaceful location, very close to downtown Hilo. Gary and Vanessa are wonderful. We would recommend staying here to anyone.
Waking up to breakfast overlooking a thundering waterfall was amazing. it never got tiring. Host popped in twice to say hi and check all was well. Large modern washer and dryer was welcome. Undercover parking was convenient on the rainy days. This quiet location is in an upmarket suburb, and the and dead end street ensured minimal traffic. Convenient to down-town Hilo, airport, Rainbow Falls and lava cave. Only criticism: bed was a little old and mattress/pillows flat. Thanks Gary and Vanessa - we would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Hilo. All the best, Sharon and Steve from Australia.
We stayed here for 3 nights and found the apartment very comfortable and well equipped. Relaxing with a glass of wine watching the waterfall was great. The location is excellent. The booking process was easy and Gary was very responsive to emails.
This stay was our first through VRBO, and it was absolutely incredible! The hosts were wonderful and provided everything we needed! They had thought of everything before we did, and it was all there for us like it was our own home. On top of that, the location is unbeatable!!! We felt like we were in the middle of nowhere on our own private waterfall, yet we were moments from town and everything that we needed! It couldn't have been better for location! We loved having breakfast by the water every morning! The space was perfect as well. Thank you so much to Gary and Vanessa for creating and sharing such a wonderful space! I would definitely recommend this to all my friends and family, and in fact, I already have! We will be back!
We stayed at Gary and Vanessa's condo for 3 nights and we loved it. We had everything we needed and it was so nice to find the breakfast supplies in the fridge.
Everything was very clean and just like the pictures showed. We loved the view of the waterfalls :-)
Highly recomended, we would definitly stay there again!
Everyone is right the pictures don't do it justice. The Apartment had everything we needed & more. When we had a question Gary promptly returned our call. Had a glass of wine overlooking the falls, what a wonderful view. Food in the frig, fruit on the table, coffee in the grinder. Air conditioning if needed or just ceiling fans. Everything was very comfortable & clean. Hosts were great!
