but after all of the wonderful breakfast that were served to us we are all on a hard core diet now that we are home. Breakfast is served right out side of your room... along with coffee. The B and B is a little hard to find at night but it is well worth the trip. Rooms are very clean... More

Cleaner than 5 stars, huge, varied breakfast spread for small extra cost. From eggs and sausage to 10 different fresh island fruits, homemade muffins and granola and much more. Garvin and Laura treat guests like family. The grounds on their 8 acres are beautiful and we'll kept... flowers palms geckos (well behaved with their own food), sunrise views over Hilo... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the Mauna Kea room and had a most enjoyable stay. All three rooms looked nice, each had its own character. The drive up from the main road is a bit bumpy but never fear, after a few hundred feet you're in a tropical paradise. All of the reviews are accurate, it's a very private... More

My parents and I stayed 3 nights here while on the Big Island and I have to say that it's the coziest bed and breakfast we've been to. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with an outdoor patio area for eating and relaxing. There's even a Jacuzzi. The breakfast was great and well worth the $15 a day price. It... More

Stayed in many b&bs around the world and this is up there with one of the best. Everything was thought of. Breakfast was fantastic and a lovely way of trying exotic fruits that had even been grown in the owners garden. Rooms are very clean and spacious. All very private too with separate access to rooms (I've always found it... More

We stayed in Hilo Bay Room and we were impressed by all the amenities offered and the beautiful lanai. Breakfast was delicious with lots of local fruit varieties. The hosts Laura and Garvin are very warm and welcoming. We loved chilling out on the hammock too! This is highly recommended if you're staying on the east coast. Location is outside... More

The grounds are beautiful & well maintained. Room was spacious; more studio than B&B. The outdoor hot tub @night was relaxing, protected by the gazebo. Breakfast was well worth the price. The eggs are fresh from their hens; fruit from the farm. Gavin & Laura are excellent hosts. Though there are 3 rooms, it is very private. New policy allowing... More

Small bnb run by a very pleasant couple. Very clean and well appointed. Personalized service. Spacious lanai for lounging in hammocks, private hot tub. On a small hill with partial ocean views. Breakfast is stunning...a beautiful composition of local fruit, juice and hot entree....as much good coffee as you need. Would rate it the best ever.,anywhere. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Goodes in early October. The owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Every detail is covered. The rooms are exactly as they are in the pictures. Everything at the guest house is clean, well maintained and immaculate. - nothing run down or long in the tooth about this place! The view from the Hilo room is beautiful... More
