"We absolutely loved our stay at Shipman House Bed & Breakfast Inn! There really is nowhere else like this on the island of Hawai'i, and we cannot praise the experience highly enough. The house itself is incredible, beautifully and carefully restored, full of extraordinary antiques and curios. Our room was light, comfortable, clean and beautifully finished. The breakfasts served every morning are unrivaled - quite honestly the best spread one could wish for - tropical fruits, homemade bakes, smoothies, carefully chosen teas and coffee. Perfect. Our hosts Barbara and Gary couldn't do enough for us, and made us feel so welcome in their wonderful home. We were even lucky enough to be staying there during hula dance lesson night! Thank you so much Barbara and Gary for making our stay in Hilo so truly memorable!"
