Hilo house description

Welcome to Aloha Falls, a unique place to stay on the Big Island. While staying here, you are surrounded by sounds of the jungle and the waterfall- which you can swim in anytime (worry-free, the water is clean and safe!). Inside the house your senses will be satisfied with original artwork by local artists and handcrafted furniture. There is nothing generic about Aloha Falls. Every detail has been hand-selected to give you a taste of authenticity and Hawaiian quality. I hope you enjoy the unique setting that we have created for you.

You are in the perfect place to go to the famous Hilo farmers market and walk down the street to all the lovely shops of Hilo! 30 min drive to Volcano National Park and 1 hr to the summit of Mauna Kea! Beautiful black sand beaches just across Hilo town.

Botantical gardens all along the Hamakua coast are close by and a world attraction!

The home itself is a world attraction- you don't actually have to go anywhere!!! This home was built by a craftsman- custom cabinetry and close attention to detail are apparent everywhere! Temperpedic style queen size beds and the lullaby of the waterfall create a superbly restFull sleep! Giant tile showers make bathing an exotic experience in itself!

***Be sure to watch the video and check our our YouTube channel for more videos.***

Recently expanded to 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, enough room for everybody! The standard rate $200/ night applies for parties reserving 2 bedrooms and the entire main house upstairs. The use of the additional 2 bedrooms, bath, etc. (the downstairs unit) requires an additional fee of $50-100+/ night depending on how many guests are in your party.

Please inquire for precise quote.

Explore tropical island foods in your fully stocked kitchen! Rest all day on your sweet lanai perched above the valley and the waterfall! Explore the famous Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots~all in walking distance. This neighborhood is highly private and secluded surrounded by waterfalls and lush Hawaiian rain forest.

Hawaiian vacation of your dreams here!! E-mail Sierra and she will help tailor your experience to fulfill you desires! Sierra is often downstairs in an entirely separate unit- so she is fully available to help you customize your vacation.

At Aloha Falls, special attention has been given to all details. The beds are high quality memory foam. Most all of the furniture is locally made by Jerry Moulton, custom craftsman. High end ceiling fans keep it cool. There are beautiful tropical plants throughout the house. There are paintings from local artist, Callie Oneill from her latest 'Rama Exhibition' ~ a project in which her partner is an elephant! Their art together is exquisite. The gardens surrounding the house are growing coconut trees, papayas, bananas, pumpkin, ti, lilikoi, puakenekene, herbs, tomatoes, etc., etc...!

You will be welcomed with complimentary coffee, tea, soap, mac nuts and chocolates ~ all locally made!

Indulge and love YourSelf with an on site massage. On site far infrared sauna & massage, yoga & your stay here is a Spa Retreat! You may also have your entire stay catered with local organic island foods! Be sure to inquire to Sierra about the unique on-site spa and healing services that she has to offer.

A note to visitors:

Aloha Falls and Sierra are completely devoted to the health of the island ecosystem... As a visitor to Aloha Falls and Hawai'i in general, please begin to develop a sensitivity to resource usage.. What does this mean? This means, please conserve. Please be aware of electricity: lights, laundry, electronics; paper goods- paper towels and toilet paper; waste generation- most packaged goods recycle, but maybe you will try our local produce and contribute less the the landfill..

Thank you for considering our precious island ecosystem. Human impact, which is relatively recent to these islands shows up quickly here. Each one of us has a great power to help or hinder the land that sustains life here.***

An island on the island. Downtown yet totally private. Walk to shops, market, waterfalls, and caves. Or just rest here all day long by your own waterfall spring. Pamper yourself with spa services. The options are infinite- this is your unique experience and you deserve to have it all!!!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: Aloha! I am so honored and excited to share Aloha Falls with you. It is my dream of Hawaiian beauty and spirit. The past decade of my life has been spent nurturing the land here on the Big Island and pursuing the wisdom of various healing arts, including: massage, energy medicine, yoga, and plant medicine. My partner Troy and I focus much of our attention on creating the beauty of Aloha Falls.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hilo:
                  Hilo is the most gorgeous place in all of Hawaii! It is a sweet historic town with locally owned shops and modern comforts. The land is lush thanks to nightly rain fall. Waterfalls and black sand beaches are everywhere, along with an abundance of farms growing exotic organic produce! It was my dream to find a place in Hilo and Aloha Falls is located on the exclusive neighborhood called Reed's Island.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The view and sound of the waterfall made this home absolutely perfect. Also, the attention to detail in building.. All of the furniture, cabinetry, and artwork are handcrafted and locally produced. There are feelings of simplicity, peace, and profound elegance here.
