About the property

Begin your vacation to the Big Island of Hawaii in a way rarely seen by tourists at the Hilltop Legacy Vacation Rental located in Downtown Hilo Bay. Discover The Big Island's famous Volcanoes National Park, Rainbow & Akaka falls as well as zip line at the World Botanical Gardens. Located on a beautiful hillside estate in downtown Hilo, this Hilo vacation rental offers superb privacy, amazing views and great prices for any traveler making their way to the Big Island.

The Volcano Room overlooks the natural volcanic crater and backyard jungle. This alluring room has a queen-size bed, large private full bath with a spacious walk-in shower, double sink, closet, writing desk, 50"HD-TV, fridge, microwave, free wifi & parking.

The best part of living here is the location. You're right in Downtown Hilo within a minutes drive to everywhere, but you'll feel like you're way out in the country! Many coffee shops are right down the street. Great Hawaiian, Japanese, Thai, and Italian restaurants are less than 5 minutes away. Want some McDonald's instead? Not a problem, there's one just down the road!

Places like Rainbow Falls, Lyman Museum, Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens, Zip lines, and much more are just a short drive away, and there's pretty much any kind of restaurant you can think of too.

About Jade Lee

Aloha! I am a new Innkeeper and have been managing the Oceanfront Legacy Vacation Rental & Hilltop Legacy Vacation Rental for 5 years. I was born and raised in Hilo and would be more than happy to share my knowledge of this beautiful Island with you! Look forward to seeing you soon! Mahalo!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I read previous reviews, and was wondering what I would get. In short: I got a nice place and had a great stay! On arrival, Jade was not there, but there was a phone to call him, and he gave me instructions how to get into the house and my room. The house is gorgeous, and the rooms are nice. I stayed a night, then somewhere else, and another night on my way back. The first night I had a normal bedroom as booked. It was a nice room, with TV, fridge and coffee machine (only one sachet of coffee, creamer and no tea). Jade must have read a previous review, since it was indeed Hawaiian coffee :-) The bathroom had a few unfinished/dated spots, but I assume Jade is fixing this at the moment, because when I returned two days later, Jade upgraded me to the suite, because he had some work done in my previous room. The suite was gorgeous, with a large bed, a beautiful desk, a lazy-boy, and a nice bathroom. Some might find the bathroom a bit dated, but it is in fact all in orginial Art Deco style, from the green tiles, to the fixtures, towel rail, shower door, etc. Wonderful! The view from both rooms was great, too - all over the city, all the way to the runway of Hilo airport. The suite even has a spyglass set up, so you can watch planes take off and land. Internet was reliable and fast in both rooms. There are indeed millions of frogs croaking all night, but I slept well anyway.

The only issue was that - as others have mentioned before - there was no breakfast. Although I did meet Jade the second visit, I forget to ask him about it. My reservation clearly shows breakfast included. Had the breakfast been there, I would have rated the Hilltop Legacy a five star. It is a beautiful place, has a beautiful garden, is close to the city (though walking would be a bit of a hike), and friendly. I loved it, and would come back any time.
