Hilo Stay

4,6 en septiembre 02, 2014

The Shipman House Bed & Breakfast is a beautifully restored mansion with a beautiful view. The rooms were large, clean and well appointed. The breakfasts were like none we had ever experienced, consisting of the widest selection of fresh fruits many we had never heard of. The owners were warm and welcoming and certainly people we would like to stay with again.

Old Hawaiian Feel

What a beautiful and interesting inn! Owners/Innkeepers Barbara & Gary provide an inviting, informative, and tasty stay in a home over 100 years old with tons of character. The house is a museum with interesting decorating and old time functionality. Skeleton keys are used to enter the rooms and with this throw-back feel comes old school cooling: fans and a breeze. No A/C! Surprisingly, the room never felt uncomfortable. Another omission is tv but they do provide WiFi which is welcome accommodation. Fresh baked muffins, homemade jams/butters, and sweet fruits coupled with the island's best coffee give guests a wonderful start to their day. Barbara and Gary are more than willing to share the house's history plus answer any questions you have about Hilo and the rest of the Big Island. Highly recommended!!!

The host and hostess are a delightful, helpful couple ready to share a wealth of information about their home, its origin and history, and their little part of the island. Their breakfast is a seasonal array of exotic fruits and beans. Tree frogs chirp through the night, but either exhaustion, the comfortable bed, or the available earplugs made them irrelevant to our experience. Overall, our stay was a very positive experience in a great vacation.

Even though we stayed for two nights in Hilo during a rain storm, the Shipman House was luxurious respite for our getaway. Thank you Barbara and Gary.

Barbara and Gary Andersen are wonderful host for their lovely home in Hilo. They epitomize the Hawaiian term "oluolu" kind and gracious. The room was lovely and the breakfast buffet was over the top.

We had a large front bedroom, en-suite. Some bedrooms have separate bathrooms. It does get quite warm in the house as there is no A/C but fans are provided. Speak with owners about which rooms are the coolest if this is an issue. Very personal experience and the breakfast is quite nice featuring many locally grown fruits and their own cereal. Nice location in a neighborhood. Pretty easy to get around to access local sightseeing and restaurants. Hilo may not be a "resort" destination but there is plenty to see and do. Owners are quite helpful.

Delightful Retreat at Historic Shipman House

4,8 en junio 18, 2014

Shipman House is a uniquely historic property, an elegant and lovingly restored Victorian home, circa 1899, located on five lushly landscaped acres. Jack London and his wife Charmian were once house guests, as was Queen Liliuokalani, who enjoyed playing the Steinway piano in the parlor. In short, a visit to Shipman House is one of those rare opportunities to glimpse what life was like for a privileged few in turn of the century Hilo, Hawaii, while enjoying thoughtfully designed baths, and breakfasts featuring exotic fruit, often grown on the estate, and much, much more. History buffs will be fascinated to learn about Barbara Andersen's family, their long history on the island, and how they came to acquire Shipman House. Gary is a font of information about things to see and do in Hilo and beyond. We stayed in the guest house on the "Mauka" side, the one away from the main house (with the headboard from the original Jack London bed), and we couldn't have been more pleased or more comfortable (and we imagine the Londons were as well). Our room afforded plenty of storage, a small refrigerator stocked with water and juices, earplugs if the coqui frogs were just too much (we found them lulling), a notebook full of information about the house itself and really, really good restaurant tips!

Fantastic B&B

This place took our breath away as we drove up. Fantastic! Our room was perfect, as was the whole place. The posted pictures are good, but being there is even better. The best part was sitting on the porch and watching the sun rises and then the great breakfasts of local fruits and breads (hence the 5 stars for "dining"). Our hosts were gracious and well informed. They know the island well including places to visit and to eat as well as the island's history. Highly recommend the Shipman House.

gorgeous incredible breakfast area of fruits!

Beautiful location, close to town, in fact we walked to dinner. Barbara is wonderful. We had a lovely stay.

Large room, friendly owners, no rolling luggage on floors

Just keep in mind that it is an old house, and there are tons of lizards and frogs living all around (and inside). The price was a bit steep compared to every other hotel we stayed at on the Big Island (especially if you compare what you get for the $$ at the mega resorts on Kohala Coast), We stayed in the "Shell Room", which meant we had to walk into the common hallway to get to our bathroom (not shared). The bed was comfy, the owners were very friendly and talkative. She had given us bad advice on our lava tour hike -- she advised against walking through mud as a 60+ yr old guest hated the experience, whereas my gf and I are early 30's and really enjoyed it. Still, we had a lovely view from all the windows, incredibly clean floors (have to be as shoes aren't allowed inside), secure parking (hidden from road), fresh fruit for breakfast every day, and a prepared binder full of Hilo restaurants and general house info. We enjoyed our stay!

Thank you for the review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay, because we enjoyed having you here. As you say, it is an old house…on the National Register, in fact. Turning it into a B&B was a great way to share the house with visitors. Unlike a hotel or mega resort, a B&B’s owners and staff treat visitors like friends, and give guests advice based on personal experiences, whether theirs or those of other guests. We always ask guests about their restaurant and touring experiences, so we can pass along the most up-to-date feedback. Not everyone enjoys trekking through a couple miles of deep mud, but everyone should be allowed to make the informed choice. We provide kimonos for the walk from the “Shell Room” to its bathroom down a short private hallway. The other upstairs guestroom is at the far end of the main hall. In fact, all guest rooms have complimentary cotton kimonos “just because”. We also provide earplugs for those who do not enjoy hearing the coqui tree frogs during the night. Tiny coqui frogs, about the size of a gummy bear, live in trees and bushes. Guests compare their chirping to spring peepers in the East. Rarely do they hop onto the porch, and they do not come into the house. As for the 4” green geckos, (think TV commercial), they keep spiders and insects under control, and it would be unusual to find more than one or two in a guestroom.
