The property is well located, our room was very spacious, with a kitchen, bath and great view. However, cleaning is not their forte. Fortunately the toilet and kitchen were ok, but I dropped something and when I looked under the bed there was like an inch of dust!

I really like the charm of this place. We were in Room 1 with a king bed and a beautiful view of the harbor. A cool big house with several rooms. Living room with a pool table and lots of outdoor space. Not fancy, just cool and different.

We were not happy with the Hilltop Legacy. We were givein the smallest room (like a really old dorm room), an old sutdent desk to hold the coffee pot, a small refridgerator and microwave (high points). An electrical nightmare of extention cords to run all of this, an old matress, sheets like harsh dish towels, strings for light pulls in... More

The home itself is beautiful. You are perched on a hill overlooking Hilo and the ocean. It is ideal. The view from our room was breathtaking. The room itself is huge and feels like a chamber in a fiction novel. The romance of course is then hit hard with certain realities. No air conditioning without an offsetting sea breeze makes...

Hilltop Legacy is in a beautiful house on top of a hill overlooking the ocean. We got a room on the side with a balcony and a wonderful view. The gardens are fabulous. We would certainly stay here again.

I'm not sure if the owner was there by coincidence when we arrived as we didn't encounter a single soul for the remainder of our two days at the Hilltop Legacy. Nevertheless, he was very welcoming and allowed us to check in early and stored our bag before we returned later in the day. I don't wish to berate the... More

I had two nights of solo traveling and picked the Hilltop last minute. I was pleasantly surprised. I was put in their legacy room and it was spectacular. An unbelievable view and such a charming room. It is a little older house which gives it it's charm.. It had everything I needed with a mini fridge and coffee maker. The... More
