I can't believe this place doesn't have a higher rating! What a perfect place to call home while visiting this side of the Big Island. We stayed in the spacious Hawaiian Room with the equally large bathroom. Loved it. I think the hosts, especially Lory, have worked very hard at making their home quite special. The graceful lanai was laid... More

Beautiful home in a very quite suburban area of Hilo. Beautiful grounds with many local fruiting trees backing on the Wailoku River. Rainbow Falls and The Boiling Pots just a short walk away. We only stayed one night in the Bamboo Room as we took time out from our West Side vacation to tour the Hilo side of the island.... More

We stayed for two nights in the Sunrise Room in mid-November during our anniversary trip. The property is in a quiet residential area. The garden was wonderful, the breakfasts were perfect - delicious and visually stunning. The breakfast is served on the porch/veranda/lanai. As there are only three guest rooms, the breakfasts are cozy, lively events - this of course... More

Yes, the room at the Old Hawaiian was pleasant, with the breeze blowing in and and the comfortable bed. But the real story of this place are the lanai and gardens galore. Bird sound around the clock kept us company-- at night through the windows in this neighborhood with large yards and plants and trees abounding. The property itself goes... More

Stayed three nights at Old Hawaiian, a comfortable home set in a subdivision just a short drive from downtown Hilo. Enjoyed the fresh baked breads and assorted fruit picked right from the backyard. Lory and Stewart are pleasant hosts, very accommodating, and have put in a lot of effort to make their B & B as comfortable as possible.

Spent last night in a very comfortable, clean and pretty room in a quiet residential part of Hilo (still close to shops, restaurants and attractions!) Great lanai to sit and listen to the birds with a cup of tea. Delightful breakfast of fruit cocktail, smoothie, scones, banana bread etc. Very reasonable price and I would highly recommend it to all!

I couldn't have found a more peaceful place for my little weekend getaway! What first struck me was the perfect location - immersed in nature yet a short drive into downtown Hilo. A stroll off the lanai through the garden full of fruit trees lead me to the spectacular Wailuku river gorge. A wooded trail meanders along the gorge offering... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this wonderful B&B! Our room was beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast was very yummy with lots of fresh fruit, homemade breads and a smoothie. The property was beautiful and very quiet. Lory was also very helpful with dining options and things to do in the are.
