B&B that has it all

Loved the view, the breakfasts, the linens,and the entire ambiance of our room. We stayed in the Bay Room with the 4 poster bed. What a great bed. And TIna was a wonderful host. We would definitely stay there again.

Friendly and accommodating service. Fresh fruit every morning with crepes, home made cakes, and other items (English muffins, toast, yogurt, etc.). Gorgeous views of the bay with a spectacular sun rises.

We loved this B&B. Very comfortable and well appointed. The bed was dreamy. The breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed eating them on the lanai with a view of Hilo Bay. This B&B is near downtown but not in the bustle. Loved Tina the host too...


Excellent Hilo getaway

A wonderful stay, close to many Hilo shops and restaurants. Lovely view of the water, and large, beautiful, and clean rooms. Breakfast was always delicious.


Island perfection

We stayed in the Palm Room and loved it. The cross breeze off the ocean made for great sleeps and the owners were attentive but not intrusive. They reacted quickly and efficiently to all requests. I had read about tree frogs keeping people awake but they were quiet for us! I have been to at least 15 countries on vacation and highly recommend this sanctuary. A five minute walk downtown with the ocean on one side and a waterfall visible upstream on the other made this an ideal location. We would definitely stay here again! Bill and Mary


Wonderful B&B

This is our second visit to this wonderful place. Whenever we stay in Hilo, we stay here. It's so wonderful to wake up to birds singing, and go to sleep listening to the waves covering the shores! The breakfasts provided always include fresh fruit daily. The pineapple bread with the crumble topping was my wife's favorite, who wishes she had the recipe! Thanks again Tina. We appreciate your hospitality!


TINA KNOWS HOW TO RUN A B&B

We stayed in the Harbor Room. It was an excellent choice for our needs and the view from our lanai was spectacular. We really liked Tina's respect for privacy, attention to detail concerning room decoration and just about everything on the property. We would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to our friends and actually already have given details to them. Aloha and Mahalo, Tina.

We have stayed at the Bay House before and have always had a wonderful time there. We sleep to the sound of the ocean....we awake to birds singing and happy! The breakfast is tasty and well prepared, thoughtfully planned. Tina is a fabulous hostess...be sure and ask Tina for the cinnamon apple bread with your breakfast, it's beyond tasty! Thanks for all you do Tina, once again you have outdone yourself! Aloha! Leialoha H.
