Very spacious, clean, beautiful views, and very private. Breakfast was served same time every morning and it was delicious. They accommodated my wife's diet restriction, and were extremely friendly but gave us our space to enjoy our vacation. Location is perfect, you feel like you are out in the country with no neighbors, very private. Tall trees surround the house,... More

Beautiful inside and view, perfect location, great hospitality, and delicious food! We came here for our honeymoon and we were blown away with how magical this place was. Private entrance, each room has its own bathroom and deck with a beautiful view. The place is decorated in a stylish Hawaii'n theme and makes you feel right at home. The host... More

A good B&B with a very nice host. Great view over Hilo Bay. Breakfast was ok: fruits, scrambled eggs, banana bread and toast. Private lanai, jacuzzi. The noisy frogs and birds at night don't really bother, in case there are earplugs in the rooms. Perhaps two little drawbacks: no AC and you can't get the room really dark. All in... More

Fabulous stay. Host is very friendly but not intrusive. Bay House supplied gluten free bread, along with a lovely breakfast, and left a special gift of chocolates and wine for my husbands birthday, which was a nice touch. We stayed in the Palm Room which was spacious, and the lanai was private. The premises are well taken care of and... More

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
