My husband and I stayed at Island Goode's on our babymoon and had an amazing time! The B&B is located about 10 minutes from Hilo and is right off the main road, so easy to find. The grounds are absolutely beautiful--at night you can see tons of stars and listen to the coqui frogs chirping, and during the day, you... More

Garven the owner was super nice and gave us a lot of helpful tips when sightseeing the area, the breakfast is awesome with hot scrambled eggs, sausages and a great variety of fruit. The room is spacious and I actually find the frogs humming help me sleep better at night. I was a little nervous about the bed since I... More

We stayed in the Mauna Kea room for 8 nights. The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. We enjoyed the private patio and all the breakfast were so good. They managed to make something different everyday. Garvin and Laura were amazing host. They went way above and beyond to help with anything we needed. We took trips each day... More

I was somewhat skeptical a bed-and-breakfast could garner so many five-star ratings, but after staying at Island Goode's in late April 2015 I quickly believed them. This is simply the finest bed-and-breakfast I've ever visited, and is one of the best lodging experiences I've ever had. We stayed in the Hilo Bay room, which was very comfortable, roomy and offered... More

This is one of the best places to stay in this corner near Hilo. We spent 2 nights with my husband and 5 month old baby to visit the volcano caldera and Mauna Kea, and this BB is very conveniently located for both drives and close to Hilo airport. The house and rooms are in a piece of rainforest paradise... More

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
