We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our time tremendously. The B&B is quite nice, and very handy to the beach and to Hilo, but surrounded by rainforest so you don't have a sense of being close to anything but nature. Claudia was very friendly and helpful, and the room quite comfy. We spent some time at Volcanoes National Park, and... More

We stayed at this B&B on our travels around the Big Island. It was a nice, quiet location surrounded by gardens and jungle making a very restful spot. Right across the the sprawling back yard jungle is a lovely beach and a perfect place to walk in the am. The room was nice and very clean and had a small... More

We had just been camping for a few days and were looking for a place to relax for the afternoon/evening and found this place. It is located in a very quiet spot in a jungle like surrounding with a small lagoon and within walking distance to the ocean. There is a place on the property that you can hang out... More

Just got back from a 2 week stay on the Big Island. Half of the time we stayed in Hilo at the Beach with Friends. This B & B was perfect for my type of traveling. Accommodations were comfortable and secure. We always had a delicious breakfast and conversation with Claudia in the morning and then set out on a... More

At the beach with friends is an amazing place to stay. If you have been to the big island you know that many places are a little older and run down. Claudia (The owner) keeps the place immaculate. The bed and breakfast is close to the airport, about 10 or 15 minutes to the terminal, however we did not hear... More

Claudia, the gracious owner, has the details nicely attended to: snorkel gear, beach towels, umbrellas etc. Rooms are large w/ comforable, kingsized beds, each has a great view of the natural setting & a lovely large clean bathroom attached. The daily fresh... More

We had a fantastic stay in Hilo enjoying At the Beach with Friends. I really liked our hosts Claudia's breakfasts: fresh tropical fruit, homemade granola with greek yogurt and strong coffee. Yumm. Since we were hiking around sites it was good to have plenty to eat and good water to drink.. I loved snorkeling just across the street at Richardson... More

Our visit was wonderful. The room was impecably clean, comfortable and beautiful. We loved the sounds of nature and the close proximity to the beach. They have everything to lend for snorkeling, relaxing at the beach, flashlights and bug spray, sunscreen for hiking, it was like being at home. Claudia's cooking is delicious as well. Healthy and decadent. We highly... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time in Hilo staying in a romantic room "at the Beach with Friends". IT was a 25th anniversary trip and we were not disappointed in our decision to go to Hilo for four days. At the Beach with Friends is conveniently located near the airport but one gets the feeling of being in... More
