Let me add to the chorus of appreciation for this lovely oasis of peace and beauty. No reason to stay in Hilo - this is just 10 minutes from town, but feels quite away from it all. If you choose the Hilo Bay room, you'll have a lovely view, or if you choose our room, the Mauna Kea, you'll have... More

My partner and I stayed in one of the fully self contained apartments and very much enjoyed our stay. Island Goode's is a short drive into town and a welcome change from staying in a hotel. The apartment was spacious with separate bedroom, lounge room and bathroom. The bed was so so comfortable!! The apartment was serviced daily and on... More

My wife and I started our honey moon in the Big Island. We didn't like the hotels in the island that much, so we looked for BNBs. We got a recommendation to stay with Island Goode's. When we arrived, Garvin, who owns the place with his wife Laura, was there to welcome us, show us around, and answer every question... More

Thank you Garvin and Laura for a wonderful stay during our 3 nights in the Hilo Bay Room. I always looked forward to breakfast being served on the lanai overlooking the lustrous greenery and ocean every morning. The amazing french toast, pancakes along with the freshest fruit you can imagine. Breakfast is served between 8-9am, My husband was so comfortable... More

Everything you could want in a Big Island B&B - lovely room, friendly, helpful hosts, beautiful location, delicious breakfasts, not too many coqui frogs. Wonderful breakfast with fresh eggs and fruit from their farm -- easy to linger on the lanai. The room was very comfortable, with everything we needed and lots of room. We'll definitely return.

Laura and Garvin are the perfect hosts--gracious, helpful but not intrusive. The breakfasts were refreshing, with lots of local fruit (even some from their garden), eggs from their hens, and tasty pancakes, waffles, muffins--all home baked and not too sweet. Our unit had two bedrooms, perfect for a family. The coffee was not watered down like other places--we were served... More

My husband and I usually stay in B&B's on our vacations because of the invaluable insight into an area provided by the proprietors. No one has done this better than Island Goode's! Garvin and Laura are warm, hospitable and knowledgeable of the island of Hawaii, and with great senses of humor. The Hilo Bay Room was large, very well-appointed, with... More

Well, first of all I must say that I am -way- past due for a review of this wonderful B&B. I've stayed their twice now with every intention of returning sooner than later. I was remiss in not writing a note from August of 2013, and now late from my June 2014 visit. Well, with that out of the way... More
