Island Goode's

27-2365 Mamalahoa Highway , Hilo, HI 96720 USA (Show map)


What makes Island Goode's special? Our privacy and optional breakfast. We are a unique bed and breakfast because each guest room will receive a private breakfast served directly to your room or your private lanai between 8-9 am, IF you choose the breakfast option. Maybe your not a breakfast person. Maybe you start you days early in the morning or maybe you stayed up late while star gazing on top of Mauna Kea and you just want to sleep in, then you could choose the No Breakfast option designed for your taste and budget. You will still enjoy the privacy and the true feel of Hawaii in a more natural surrounding. Coconut trees, all kinds of tropical fruit trees and fruiting vines are all captured on our 6 acre piece of paradise. Water abounds with 2 running streams on both sides of the property. Perfectly located 5 minutes from Old Hilo Town, 10 minutes from the Hilo International Airport, and 35 minutes from the Volcano. We also rate the highest on TripAdvisor for the East Side of the Island. We offer both Ocean and Garden view rooms. All main rooms have air conditioning, private entry, private full bathrooms and King Size "Sleep Number" "Select Number" mattresses. We really are the most comfortable Bed & Breakfast on East Side of The Big Island. Our breakfasts are unmatched...please read some of the 169+ reviews (5-star) on TripAdvisor.

Accommodattions for Island Royality

5 on April 06, 2016

I have been a guest of the Goodes twice while attending the Merrie Monarch International Hula competition. Both times have been extremely comfortable, and convenient, The site is an easy 7 mile drive from Hilo, offering views of the bay and breezes. The grounds are lush with tropical vegetation. Each room has a private entrance. is beautifully decorated, and cooled with ac and fans. The covered lanai surrounding the house provides a perfect shady spot for a bountiful breakfast offered in privacy just outside each room. The Goodes were helpful to us when ever we asked them for assistance, even lending us folding chairs to use for the parade. When visiting Hilo this is the palce to stay.

Wonderful stay

We stayed here for three nights and it was fabulous!!! We found this B&B after a recommendation from another B&B owner on the island. It did not disappoint.. Garvin & Laura were exceptionally hospitable and the breakfasts were both plentiful and delicious. The property is beautiful and tranquil. Located about 7 miles north of Hilo, it was easy to get to and nicely located to see the botanical gardens or take a day trip to the volcanoes. The property is large and has great hammocks and a hot tub to relax in. We would definitely return and recommend it to friends!!

the Goodes ARE good!!!!!
