This was our third trip to Hawaii, our first time in Hilo and our first time in a bed and breakfast. I wanted to be up close and personal with the residents in Hawaii. My husband agreed as long as we had a private bath. We were there two nights, 2/24 and 2/25, 2014. It was a wonderfully, delightful experience! Tim & Jami could not have been a better host & hostess! Jami had our expected time of arrival and since it was dark, was keeping an eye out for us. It was a wonderful feeling to have somebody waiting for us after being awake 21 hours. We live in the Philadelphia area so it was a very long day between three flights and the five-hour time difference. Both Jami & Tim were extremely helpful advising us on what to see and do; even allowing us to take one of their Big Island guide books with us during our excursions! We definitely saw more than we planned using this book and following their advice. The adjustable mattress was heavenly and falling asleep each night to the noisy frogs was quite entertaining! The earplugs were not needed! The continental breakfast each morning was more than enough and the conversation was very interesting with the other “residents.” D & S B n B is #1 place to stay in Hilo in our book! You could not ask for anything more! If we ever make it back to Hawaii a fourth time, it will include a longer stay in Hilo at D & S with Jami & Tim. Thank you so much for the wonderful memories!

My husband and I stayed at D & S Bed and Breakfast for two nights earlier this month (June 2013). Tim and Jami Vezina recently took over the management of the b & b, and they are terrific-- friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, quick to help, and great at knowing whether you're up for a chat or not. They have great suggestions for activities, dining, or just kicking around. The location can't be beat as mentioned by other guests-- literally across the street from the farmer's market, a good local grocery store, and within blocks of a huge variety of restaurants. Parking might be a little iffy as only street parking is available, but in the two days we were there, we didn't have problems finding a spot within the block. Upon our arrival, Tim was on the street waiting for us because the location is easy to miss; he pointed out a good parking spot and helped with bags. The rooms are simply furnished but clean and comfortable. No air conditioning, but well ventilated. Breakfast is simple as well, but plentiful-- fruit, juice, bagels, English muffins, pastries, coffee, tea, a variety of cereals, peanut butter, milk, etc. Our unit had a refrigerator, which was really handy, and we appreciated the in-room coffee maker, too. We appreciated the free Wi-Fi! Available to borrow are books, rain gear, and reusable shopping bags-- all nice touches. Should we find ourselves in Hilo again, we'd stay again!

I have stayed in many B&B's in the course of my travels and have never enjoyed such fine amenities and hospitality as those offered by Doug and Sue. Their B&B is conveniently located in the downtown core of Hilo, but their compound of six rooms surrounding an inner courtyard is double-gated and surrounded by lush greenery, giving the impression of a more rural and quiet setting. We plan to return next December when we revisit the Big Island. Thanks again, Doug and Sue!! Rob Vinnedge

Visited Doug and Sue about a year ago for three weeks and it was great! We were 14 people from Finland and we fitted just perfectly in this small but beautiful haven in the down town Hilo. Doug and Sue themselves were the best advertisment, they were friendly and helpful beyound any mesurments! The place was clean and tranquil despite the fact that it was about 200 feet from the Farmers Market. Excellent situation. If we ever go to Hilo again this will be the place! Just loved it, Ilkka and Karola.

The accommodations and hospitality were excellent. My husband and I stayed 10 days and the location was convenient to all our tourist sites as well as to Kona via automobile. Doug and Sue were so helpful and communicative. This location allows you to really feel the culture of Hilo. Our two sons attend University of Hawaii and it was also a great location to assist them with getting settled for school. Will return and hopefully can stay here again.

My sister and I stayed with Doug and Sue while visiting Volcanoes National Park and other parks. The two of them went beyond expectations to make sure we had the best time on our lives. They took us to pick up our rental car when we made the poor choice of nor renting at the airport. The directions they gave us to out of the way roads to the parks were just so special. GO AND ENJOY THE D&S BED AND BREAKFEAST WITH SUE AND DOUG!

A great, beautiful place in the very center of Hilo, still very safe and has it's own privacy. Everything is near, the farmer's market, stores etc. It was a joy to be there. Rooms were very clean and nice, all service was great. Owners Doug and Sue were super friendly and lovely, helping with everything all the time. Really felt like home, spent almost 3 weeks there, with a group. Miss you Doug and Sue, all best to you! Anita
