Very nice bed & breakfast. The rooms were small, but comfortable enough. The highlight of our stay was the breakfast. Jane made us anything we asked for. She was so nice! The papaya stuffed with bananas was so good!

We stayed here for four days at the end of December. It is very convenient to the volcano national park, and not far from Hilo. Unlike many B&Bs, the Mountain View has a great little kitchenette (fridge, microwave, coffee maker) and spacious living area with sofas and easy chairs for guests to use. This makes it easy for a family... More

Thanks to Jane and Linus we had a fantastic time in this B&B! At only 20 minuts from Volcano National Park, Hilo, and 30min from the departure of the Hike for the new lava flow of Dec. 2012, it was a great moment for us in the honeymoon room. The room was big, the bed was great, well everything in... More

We stayed at B&B Mountain View as part of our honeymoon. It is quite off the beaten track, and is surrounded by lovely, lush grounds. If it's not cloudy/raining, you apparently get a beautiful view of the mountain - sadly, we didn't get to experience this. Great if you want to get away from everything, but if you'd like to...

We had the pleasure of staying at B&B Mountain View for 3 nights during our stay on the Island recently. The main reason we picked this B&B was location. We planned on spending our days in the National Park, and wanted to be close by. It was about a 15 minute drive to the gates of the park. And not... More

We stayed a few days in the B&B run by Jane and Linus close to Hilu on Big Island. Both are artists and designed their big house as a studio and for their large family. Some of the rooms are now rented out, when their children and grandchlidren are not visiting. Our room was large and provided enough space for... More

We have traveled in several countries and I believe this is one of the nicest B&Bs we have had. I agree with previous reviews that the home and the hospitality of Jane & Linus Chao are exceptional. It is a quiet setting with very attractive grounds, yet convenient to Hilo, the Volcano and Puna area. We had warm, generally sunny... More

This B&B is located down a side road downhill to the east about halfway to Volcanoes NP from Hilo. The house was built as a family house for Jane and Linus Chao's children and grandchildren, but when they grew up and didn't all visit at once, it became a B&B. The hosts turned their 4 acre property from a lava... More

Jane and Linus Chao were wonderful hosts. Their property is serene and beautiful. The koi pond and lush vegetation are the perfect combination. The children loved exploring the grounds. The rooms were very comfortable and offered the perfect privacy. The central location on the island was the perfect base to visit all parts of the Big Island! Thank you for... More

What a delight to find such a charming couple and their beautiful artworks. Jane and Linus were perfect hosts who shared with us much more than their home. If you prefer the anonymity of franchised hotel chains then the Chaos' B&B might not be for you but. However, I recommend it for anyone visiting Volcanoes National Park. At night we... More
