We spent our first four nights on Hawaii at Island Goodes. Despite our late arrival, Garvin took the time to show us everything we needed to know, with Laura taking over when it came to providing breakfast the following morning. We found it a great base for exploring the Eastern side of the Island, with everything we wanted to see... More

We had a wonderful time at Island Goode's. I felt I was back in my homeland (Colombia, South America) with all the tropical landscape, lush vegetation, panoramic views, beautiful sunsets, and specially the hospitality and excellent service. We stayed at the Ginger Room, very spacious, clean and with all amenities. Breakfasts were spectacular, with all that fresh tropical fruit, pancakes,... More

We chose this place because of its excellent trip advisor rating. We were concerned about low ratings for many other HIlo properties, so we were glad this property had vacancy for a night. The property was great. We loved Garvin's warm hospitality throughout. Laura was very helpful in making great suggestions of what to see and what was not so... More

The recent review from Texas took every word I had to say. This is the first B&B I or my family had ever stayed in and man Laura set the bar high. We stayed in 3 other B&B's while on the Big Island but there was just something about Island Goode's. Stars, circles and checkmarks just don't do justice. We... More

I wish I could award them 6 stars, because they definitely deserve it! Absolutely spectacular! We wound up at Island Goode's by chance on a referral from another B&B that was booked, and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. Garvin and Laura were excellent hosts and worked very hard to make our stay a memorable one. They were... More

Spectacular hosts, beautiful views of farms and the Pacific Ocean, privacy, hot tub, air-conditioning and best breakfast on the big island! We cannot say enough about this special find we discovered on trip advisor. Your hosts, Garvin and Laura make you feel at home and will give you a private tour of their farm and their lovely animals.

We so enjoyed our time at Island Goode's. We stayed in the Hilo Bay Room which included a sleep number bed (amazing!). Garvin and Laura were so helpful with planning our days in Hilo and the breakfasts were delicious (fruit, pastry/bread, pancakes, egg, sausage, juice, coffee). The lanai was a perfect place to watch the sunrise and relax. The location... More

Definitely upscale B&B. Rooms have private entrances (no shared public areas except outside) which gets my vote every time. We stayed in the Hilo room - quite spacious for a B&B room! Deluxe linens on a super-comfortable king-size sleep number bed. Flawlessly clean with tasteful island furnishings. Gorgeous view of the valley and ocean from the porch. Laura and Garvin... More

My stay at Island Goode's far exceeded my expectations. The proximity to Hilo and the volcano is so convenient. The breakfasts including tropical fruits served on the covered lanai, lush native plantings, and the hill top setting with a view of Hilo Bay provide the desired ambiance of Hawaii for a visitor. The bed linens, towels and furnishings are truly... More

We stayed at Island Goode's in April 2014 and it was an experience to remember. We didn't get a chance to talk to Garvin, but Laura was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. The room was the cleanest we'd seen and very comfortable. Their home is a little north of Hilo and in a much quieter area, so at night we... More
