We stayed with friends at Island Goode's for 4 nights in the Hilo Bay and Hale Makai rooms. Laura and Garvin, the owners, were extremely welcoming and attentive hosts. Laura knows the island well and gave us great advice on things to do in the area. She is also a great cook. The exquisite breakfast was a wonderful way to... More

This was a delightful B&B. It's quite close to Hilo, has a view of the distant ocean, the food is excellent and the owners were wonderful. We were in a group of seven. One room had an attached room that easily accommodated my son and his family of five while my husband and I had a very nice room with... More

Five stars for Island Goode's, for all the same reasons as everyone else. We stayed for a few nights in the Mauna Kea room. Very spacious, with all the amenities we could've needed including small fridge and dishes and glasses. The location is great--just five minutes' drive out of Hilo, and far enough off the main road that we could... More

We had a wonderful time in the Mauna Kea Room for two nights. This is a beautiful property and very well kept. Everything was clean and comfortable. The best part is the room was so nice and spacious that you could spend all day in it if you wanted. The patio area was comfortable with swings and hammocks for you... More

Beautiful, well kept B&B. Garvin and Laura are wonderful, helpful people. Breakfast was outstanding- many ingredients grown on their own farm. Location near Hilo, Botanical Garden, other sites very centrally located. Nice views of the bay and mountain. Very enjoyable stay!! Thank you!!

We spent 2 nights there as a base to see the volcano, what a treat! In my view, this is the perfect mix between a B&B and a boutique hotel, you get personalized service and amazing tropical breakfast, and privacy - breakfasts are served on your lanai, so you don't have to talk to other guests, and owners only stay...

Can't tell you how much we enjoyed our too short stay at Island Goode. The proprietors, Laura & Garvin went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable in every way. Island Goode is located a couple of miles north of Hilo, which is perfect because it give you easy access to town, yet allows you to relax in your... More

Yes, like all the others, we had a wonderful time here. Found it on recommendation from the Orchid Inn which was full up, and we are glad! Hosts were friendly and available but not obtrusive. Room was spotless and elegant. Small fridge and coffeemaker for those of us who like to have that option. Breakfast was truly wonderful - pancakes... More

We just stayed for two nights with Garvin and Laura. They could not have been better hosts. We have sort of finicky vegan, gluten-free diets, and they were more than accommodating. Laura experimented on us, much to our belly's delight. We don't normally stay at B&B's, but here they really respect your privacy, and yet, they were right there when... More

We stayed two nights at this spectacular bed and breakfast. We can't say enough about this place! The room was meticulously clean, and I'm a clean freak and everything was so comfortable. We had exactly what we needed and the hosts were more than friendly and hospitable. We stayed in the Hilo Bay Room which was quite large with a... More
