About Jack Stevenson
Owners are Jack and Jane Stevenson. Jack is a fourth generation Hawaii resident. His great grandparents came from Germany in 1882, straight to Kauai. Jane has lived in Hawaii over 50 years. They grew up on Oahu and spent 14 years on Kauai before moving to the Big Island when they purchased the property and created “The Falls at Reed's Island”. They fell in love with Hilo immediately. Hilo feels like Honolulu did in the fifties. They love the verdant green side of the Island and all the beautiful rivers and streams. They live in an historic house just five minutes from The Falls. Jack is very active in the Rotary Club of South Hilo. Jane spends time on historic preservation. Jack is an avid scuba diver, who only recently sold his dive boat.
Jack Stevenson purchased this House in 2004
Why Jack Stevenson chose Hilo
The property was a private vacation home designed and built by two Architects, from San Francisco. Upon the death of one the property was put on the market. We purchased the property because of its simplistic beauty, and by the way it has a 25' waterfall right in the yard. Jane and I converted it to a vacation rental.

Family Vacation in Paradise
Our family of 5: with kids ages 17,15, and 11 LOVED this place. We have stayed in many vacation rentals but this one was over the top. We actually picked the Big Island specifically for this place and it did not disappoint. The massive private waterfall was so much better than imagined. This open air home with three tropical themed open air bedrooms was surrounded by a private jungle. Here there is no evidence of any neighbors. The kitchen and dining room were our gathering place, with wonderful waterfall views. The private lanai with a hot and cold soaking tub was a family fun oasis. Check in and check out was intentionally simple. These hosts know how to induce and ensure lasting relaxation. Hilo is a stone’s throw with awesome grocery and restaurant access. We ordered out and ate together in the dining room with our own private view. While great for a family, given the seclusion and amenities, this would be a wonderful place for honeymooners and anniversarys. We will BE BACK! Perhaps many times.
Oh. Wow! This Place is Incredible!!!
From the moment we drove up onto the property until the moment we had to leave... we were totally "wowed!" What a truly remarkable place with such incredible views! And, to top that off with the sweetly thoughtful guest amenities that were there for our arrival, this was such an amazingly great place and the owners were such incredible hosts. As having stayed in almost 30 VRBO and HomeAway rentals over the years, this one topped the scale in sheer WOW factor! Thanks again to the owners for sharing this with us!
The most beautiful home on the island.
Jack has been an Incredible host and made our stay so effortless. The house is unlike anything I've ever seen before and truly the pictures don't do it justice. We had our small wedding ceremony by the falls and it was completley magical. We are looking forward to returning to this little slice of heaven again in the future.
Gorgeous property. We (6 adults) a great time here. Communication with the owner and check in was seamless. The place is paradise.
Our 2nd visit to the Falls at Reed’s Island was just as wonderful as our first visit seven years ago. I don’t know what my favorite part of this place is: The sights and sounds of the waterfall, river, and jungle? The central yet also remote location? The beautiful and unique architecture of the home? The sweet Hawaii aroma? Oh yes - It’s all the above!
We can’t imagine anyone ever being disappointed staying at The Falls. We cannot wait to go back!
Absolutely stunning, not sure how this place exists!
The yard of this property is out of this world. I cannot believe this exists in a private property. It was so relaxing to hear the waterfall and see the lush greens out of every window.
I cooked every meal at the property and the kitchen is well stocked.
East side of the Big Island, Hawaii. Great location for visits to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
