Travel across the wooden bridge to my lovely plantation home. My home has classic character with high ceilings and lots of light. It is on Reeds Island, a historic and beautiful neighborhood surrounded by a river on one side and stream on the other. Walking distance to downtown Hilo. Restaurants, Galleries, Farmers market and more. Very close to Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots. A very special area to enjoy..

Staying with Marlene was amazing. Her house is beautiful and the location on Reed Island is very unique and convenient. It’s only a few minutes to old town Hilo and Rainbow falls are around the corner as well. I’d definitely stay with her again.

This was the best possible place for us to stay while visiting Hilo and Volcanoes National Park! We loved the breakfast that Marlene prepared for us early in the morning. She was a kind and amazing host who had lots of tips about the local area!
