Comfortably nestled in a serene jungle setting, perched above beautiful Hilo Bay. Walk across the “Singing Bridge" to historic downtown Hilo. Free WiFi and parking. Cliffside hot tub overlooks the bay. Buffet style continental breakfast served and enjoyed on the privacy of your oceanfront lanai. Convenient yet secluded. Casual luxury. The Place to stay in Hilo.

A Beautiful B&B with a View to Match!

4.6 on April 04, 2015

A welcoming home with great hospitality! And a convenient location to the volcano park and other island sites.

The best B& B that we have stayed at.

The Bay House rooms are clean and very nicely appointed. Attractive decor, comfortable bed and a nice lanai with a great view of Hilo Bay. Breakfast was terrific, fresh fruit, choice of cereal, baked goods and an omelet. Christine was very helpful with restaurant and directions. A great place to stay.

Everything you want

The Bay House has everything you want in a B&B. A friendly, helpful and informed host. A spacious comfortable room with balcony overlooking the ocean and lush vegetation. Very close to downtown Hilo - seven minutes walk to some excellent restaurants and shops. Wonderful beds. We stayed 5 nights and slept like babes every night waking to a fantastic breakfast every morning. Outstanding.

The Bay House is a Gem!

The Bay House is within walking distance of downtown Hilo, and at the same time it offers travelers privacy and tranquility. Each room has a stunning view of Hilo Bay, where visitors can watch stunning sunrise and sunsets. I highly recommend staying at this property.

Nicely done!

This bay front B&B is convenient, nicely appointed and the buffet style breakfast was substantial. You can walk to downtown Hilo in 5 minutes. The ocean is right outside your door. Each room has a private lanai overlooking the bay. Easy to park, Innkeepers give you plenty of privacy. Would stay here again.

Ocean front, walking distance to downtown Hilo

5 on February 19, 2015

This property is on the water and we could walk over the river and be downtown in 5 minutes. Super convenient. Large ample breakfasts. Have stayed here many times. Easy parking. Free wifi. Innkeepers give you plenty of privacy. Great central location to explore the volcano, Puna, Mauna Kea and the Hamakua coast.

Just "OK"

There was nothing at all outstanding about this B&B. Actually hard to sleep with the ocean noise and you needed the windows open because of no air conditioning.

Great View and Hot Tub Too!

Well appointed rooms with balconies overlooking Hilo Bay. Every morning we could pick up our pre-built breakfast and sit on the balcony to enjoy the view. Then an easy walk into the old downtown area. Plenty of beach towels and mats, etc. for use at the beach.

Terrific stay!

We stayed for our last two nights on Hawaii Island and felt really at home. The location is very good,and we didnt get any noise from the main road. The hosts are discrete and very helpful. A very good breakfast - best we had in two weeks in Hawaii.
