Bay House is a lovely B&B in Hilo with fantastic views over the bay. Perfect spot to base yourself for exploring eastern side of Island. Only 5min walk into downtown although doing so at night can be daunting as not really footpath and it is a busy road. We spent two nights in harbour room. Room had big king sized... More

Wonderful! We had the harbour room - it is beautiful - views of the harbour and bay in a tranquil setting. The room and bathroom was spacious, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. You have you breakfast on your own private lanai, breakfasts were brilliant - lots of tropical fruit, coffee, juice, cereal, hard boiled eggs, cooked eggs etc - excellent.... More

I am a repeat visitor to the Bayhouse and it is always a wonderful experience. The accommodations, breakfast and privacy are all top-notch. The location, within walking distance to downtown, is a plus; additionally, it is out of the heavy traffic zone so driving north on the coast road is easily accessible. Booking early is a plus, but always check... More

We have always been a little leery of staying at a bed and breakfast, and this was our first such stay. This experience has totally sold us on the B & B experience. We stayed in the Palm Room, which has great cross ventilation and a comfortable bed and was very clean. As one other guest said, the Easter Bunny... More

Stayed in the Harbor room. Loved every minute we spent on the lanai overlooking the bay!! Very clean and cozy. Great breakfast. Tina even offered us lasagna for dinner one evening! Can't recommend this place more! You'll be happy you booked here!! Close to everything, yet a real retreat from it all!! We'll be back!!

This is our second time at The Bay House, and I must say it's absolutely perfect.The rooms are lovely with lots of natural light, fresh flowers, great furnishings and nice-sized, updated bathrooms. My husband and I ate the wonderful breakfast provided by Tina right out on our deck. We watched the ships go in and out of the harbor, and... More

Staying again at my favorite place in Hilo - the Bay House. Great location right on the bay, walking distance to town. Tom and Tiny are great hosts, the food is delicious, and the rooms are nicely furnished! I'm staying in the Harbor room......heaven!

I recently spent 5 nights at the Bay House. This was my first time to Hawaii and the trip lived up to all expectations. The Bay House was so accommodating and made sure we had all of the assistance or advice on local activities that we asked for. The room (and balcony) were very clean and the entire property was...

I can't say enough about how fabulous the BayHouse is to stay at. Tom and Tina are friendly accommodating hosts suggesting great places to see. My husband had a blast golfing. The fresh fruit from the Farmer's market was a delicious treat every morning. After a long cold snowy winter the lush green scenery and warm weather refilled my soul.... More

Nicely appointed B & B. Situated right on Hilo Bay with 3 rooms. We stayed in the Palm room which was on the corner with a great view. Smaller lanai than others, but that was fine as this much more of a base for us to explore the east side. Tina is a nice host and I appreciated her hands... More
