Description of the Hilo vacation home rental
Buddha's Cup Retreat at Leleka'ae Falls is situated on 20 acres above Hilo Bay providing sweeping 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. This unique retreat is perfectly suited for a romantic getaway, a unique island wedding, a vacation with family and friends or a corporate retreat and includes two 70' waterfalls on the property.

Natural light spills into every room through large picture windows and French 10-light glass doors highlighting the unique koa, chocolate heart and tropical ash hardwood floors and hand-carved balinese doors. Tastefully decorated accommodations are found throughout the space featuring an upper and lower level. Each level includes a full kitchen, washer and dryer and two full baths.

The 1200' wrap-around upper level lanai provides guests with plenty of outdoor space to take in the superlative views. The large lanai area off the upper level family room features a grill, tables for dining and two chaise lounge chairs to take in the sights and sounds of the waterfalls.

This 3,000 sq. ft. Estate-styled Retreat will accommodate groups of 10 adults with up to 4 additional children and is 10 minutes up mountain from Hilo and 20 minutes from the Hilo International Airport.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are we able to hike down to the waterfalls?
A: Yes, at your own risk. It's beautiful but we have no control over the weather. When the large rocks get wet, they are slippery.
Q: What makes your vacation rental unique?
A: The location makes the vacation rental unique. On 20-acres and at 1300 ft. elevation, the views are exceptional. You can literally see the entire southeast side of Hawaii's Big Island including 3 volcanoes, the Pacific Ocean, Hilo Bay and more.
Q: What is so special about the Hilo side of Hawaii's Big Island?
A: Hilo is located on the east side of the island also known as the "wet" side. Lush vegetation, waterfalls, a large farmer's market, local beach parks and 45 minutes to either the Mauna Kea observatory visitor center or Volcanoes National Park are all found here.
