Spacious well-appointed home with everything you need just moments from downtown Hilo. With three bedrooms and two baths, this Reed's Island home is a wonderful place to stay while you enjoy all that the Big Island has to offer.
The master bedroom with its ensuite bathroom opens up to a small lanai that's perfect for enjoying your morning coffee. Later, enjoy the large family-sized lanai off the open living/dining/kitchen open floorplan central area. The front lanai is large, covered and ready for enjoyment.
Behind the house is the Wailuku River and its many waterfalls. You can see several small ones from the back lanai. For privacy, across the river is a large undeveloped parcel so you can sit out and enjoy this all to yourself if you so choose.
Down the street are pieces of Hilo history like the Shipman house. The Reed's Island area has always been a highly prized neighborhood with an eclectic mix of old and new homes - no two alike.
From the house, you could walk or take short drive into downtown Hilo. On the way you will pass the Hilo Public Library, with its historic stones (the Naha Stone and the Pinao Stone). Because of the role the Naha Stone played in the history of Hawaii, its worth a visit. An ancient legend said that the one who moved the stone would rule all the islands, but if you took the challenge and failed, you were killed. Kamehameha took that challenge and succeeded - and he did rule all the islands.
Further downtown is a wide assortment of shops and restaurants where you can find everything from high-end fancy chopsticks to amazing art. The food varies from "burger and fries" to higher-end meals sourced with local ingredients. Downtown Hilo is something you truly should experience.
