We could find nothing wrong with this B&B. It was easy to get to, room was excellent, owners made you feel at home, breakfast was fantastic. It was on a farm location. We had our own patio and were served breakfast in our private area. It was very quiet with just the right amount of attention from the owners. The... More

The Island Goode’s bed and breakfast is well known for its superb morning meals, but there is more to it than that. The hospitality of Laura and Garvin make it a special place, and it's convenient to the center of Hilo. The hosts go out of their way to accommodate you in every way—travel information and prompt personal service. The... More

My daughter, son-in-law, wife and I stayed a few nights at Island Goode's in late Jan 2015. For my wife and me, this is our first B&B and we do not know what to expect. We were blown away by the personal services provided by Laura & Garvin at breakfast. Fresh papaya, star-fruits, pineapple, passion fruits, and banana which were... More

I stayed in the Mauna Kea room. It was very spacious and comfortable with a king-size bed, comfy sofas (2) and modern restroom facilities. There are hammocks to lounge in and a jacuzzi to soak in. It is only 4 miles out of Hilo and has a lovely view of Hilo Bay. It is a short easy drive into town.

We stayed at Island Goode's for 3 nights and really enjoyed the location, the view, service and the wonderful breakfast. Garvin is extremely helpful and knowledgable about sightseeing activities and travel logisticts. Laura's breakfast was amazing! Each morning we'd get a generous portion and varieties of fruits(pineapple, papaya, pasion fruit, apple bananas), most of which come from their own fruit... More

My family loved our few nights' stay at Island Goode's while visiting the Hilo area in late December. Our rooms were extremely comfortable, quiet, and clean, the breakfasts were fabulous, and the views were lovely. The guava French toast was so yummy that we went to the bakery (about an hour away) and got a loaf of the bread to... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor we found Island Goode's. It really should be called Island Bests. I was sad about leaving Kona behind - the sun, the beach, the great Bed and Breakfast (that didn't serve breakfast!). But when Garvin met us at Island Goode's I quickly became excited for our four-night stay with him. The property is beautiful - farm... More

We started our mornings with a luxurious dip in the hot tub, followed by an amazing breakfast with fruit off trees on the property. Relaxing, comfortable, clean, wonderful hammocks, chairs on a shaded porch with views of the ocean and Mauna Kea. Spacious and pristine room. Sleep number bed with a great touch as we each prefer different hardness of... More

We stayed here for four nights and had a wonderful time! The breakfast was amazing each and every morning! Our favorite was the day we got to "sneak" and eat on the Hilo Bay room lanai as no one else was there that day. That room has a wonderful view of the bay! We stayed in the Mauna Kea room... More

Had to stay over in Hilo for the night and contacted Island Goode's. Since I was leaving early in the morning and arriving after 7 pm they put my breakfast in the room for me. This is a very nice location just outside of Hilo and the room was large with all the amenities I needed. Great nights sleep on... More
