Reeds Island - - - Exquisite home with the finest Hilo address, a Virginia Brooks McDonald, FAIA, architect-designed home, overlooking the Wailuku River. Brooks is the author of Heating or Cooling Your Building Naturally, Solar Architectural Solutions. The architect relates how vertical ventilation and controlled daylighting--to the exclusion of air-conditioning and daytime electric lighting can be applied. Every space is filled with interesting angles, views and light...and STUNNING views of the river. Enjoy the incredible view from the spacious deck and watch the different moods of the river and the rain forest surrounding you. This home is incredibly private and exceptionally designed for comfort and style, all in one. The master suite is separated on one end of the home featuring a large office and resting area, and a spacious, master bathroom suite, complete with walk-in shower, and Japanese Furo bath room, both overlooking the river. The living room is very spacious with soaring, exposed beam ceilings and open to the kitchen. What a terrific bright and functional space with lots of counter space, a view of the river, pantry and more. The guest bedroom is also very comfortable with its own en suite bathroom and even a mini bar sink. There is also a separate walk-in storage closet and spacious laundry room on this side of the home as well. Additionally, there is an open art studio room with a utility sink and its own side entrance.

This home is along a beautiful river with waterfalls just outside your windows! Swimming is not recommended in the river, so don’t risk it.
The house was spacious and served as a good base camp. I would not recommend if you will be spending significant time in the home, as the furniture is not for spending lazy days on. As it is in the forest expect small insects and general humidity and dampness.
It was raining while we visited and were not quite prepared for how that effects the homes in the area.
Great home with beautiful artwork and served as a great place close to downtown Hilo!
