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.
You will be renting the Hilo Bay Room located in the most convenient location in Hilo! There's a lot of natural light all day long, and although we live steps away from Downtown Hilo, our property is located at the top of a hillside residence, which means it's peaceful and quiet at all times.
The Hilo Bay Room is a small and cozy room which offers a tranquil setting with views of downtown Hilo Bay and soothing sounds of the water fountain. This room includes a full-size bed, full private bath, fridge, Microwave, cable, free wifi & parking. We recommend this room for single travelers. Maximum Occupancy: 2.
Guests are invited to enjoy our two outdoor lanai's, stainless steel gas grill and dining areas. Two additional areas sport a large living room with a fireplace, billiard table and books to help you plan your day and an intimate oriental garden with a koi pond and fountain.
Interaction with Guests
I'm here to help you out! You are welcome to call and ask as many questions as you want, whenever you need. I enjoy making new friends and showing people around.
People are also really nice around here. Everyone is used to having tourists around all year long, so even if you don't speak english, they will find a way to help you out. It's also a really safe area, and there are cops everywhere all day and night long.
I do recommend renting a car if possible. Although we are located so close to many restaurants, shops and attractions, to really get the most out of your trip to the Big Island, you will need to explore! This is a Big Island, an there are so many great things to see that you would be missing out on if you don't have a vehicle.
If you have a car, parking is available for you. We provide safe parking just outside of the house. If you want, pop, your head out the window and make sure your car is still there!
Easy access to:
Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens
Volcanoes National Park
Shopping & Dining
Imiloa Astronomy Center

A very nice place, easy to find. Clean, quiet, well organized. Our skyroom is big and comfortable , great view.
I arrived at night and check-in was smooth. I did not see Jade, but Mr. Lee happened to be at the house. He was very nice. The house itself is nicely decorated and the room is clean and has everything you will need. The night view of the Hilo Bay is priceless. Wish I could spend more time at the house. One downside is I was woken up early in the morning by a lady talking very loud on the phone in the room next door. I am talking about super early, like 5 something. I understand there is jet lag, but it is just a little annoying.
Jade is a very friendly person. The location of the accommodation is good.
The room was clean. The breakfast was a nice addition. There was plenty of choice.
Arrival went very smoothly.
A nice and clean, simple little room, quiet and hidden up on the hillside it has a lovely view down to the town. A simple breakfast in the morning which you could help yourself too. A lovely place to use as a base for this side of the island if you have lots of things planned.
The place was great. Jade was very friendly and helpful. We upgraded the room when we got there, as there was a bigger one available with a balcony. The spaces are great, with a pool table to use and very tranquil garden to sit in. Both rooms had an amazing view overlooking Hilo and the ocean. The water pressure wasn't great, but for one night it was no problem. The rooms are very private, and had everything we needed.
The hilltop legacy was a great stay for me. What a view from my window. The grounds are beautiful and lush. Jade was helpful host and down to earth. It is a mile up the hill from town a healthy trek either walking or running but worth every step. You really need a car to see all the sights.
