My family and I spent 3 nights here in July. The place felt like home and the owners treat you like family. They made a wonderful homemade breakfast each morning including fresh fruit right from the property. Highly recommended!

I have no choice but to extend the flawless reviews for this place! The couple who run this b&b truly go out of their way to ensure the comfort of their guests. Terrific freshly made breakfasts served at your lanai each morning along with great coffee! Very comfortable (sleep number) bed, & impeccably clean rooms. Garvin and Laura really are... More

Lovely place, stayed in the Hilo Bay Room for 2 nights. Really enjoyed our stay. Laura and Garvin were very pleasant. The breakfasts were delicious and beautifully served. It is private and quiet. Room was very spacious, beds were very comfortable. Close to Hilo, the scenic route, Akaka Falls and Waipio Valley which is amazing. Plan to stay again.

We spent 3 nights in the Hilo Room at the Island Goode's Bed and Breakfast. It is a beautiful location, and our room was like a luxury master bedroom. The owners were warm, helpful, and thought of every detail a visitor might need. Our room had a wonderful ocean view (in the distance) but beautiful! It is located in a... More

We stayed in the Hilo Bay room and it was wonderful. Although they had air conditioning, we did not need to use it the 4 nights we were there. The room is a corner room and has fans and lots of windows to get a great breeze. Galvin and Laura were the best. Breakfast was delicious and served on the... More

Wonderful location, incredibly peaceful. The breakfast was delicious. The layout was wonderful, large room, nice bathroom. Swings and tables outside of each room for outside enjoyment. Garvin and Laura were wonderful and had excellent recommendations. Laura took out children to explore the farm. The kids found lots of geckos and are still talking about how much fun they had!

I would recommend this B&B to anybody. The rooms who spacious and the sleep number beds very comfortable. I slept like a log. Ask for the omelettes for breakfast. It rates in the top ten vacation breakfasts in my life! Take the farm tour. You will be amazed at the sustainable farming that brings the foods to your breakfast table.

We had a wonderful, relaxing 3-day stay at Island Goode's. This B & B is conveniently close to Hilo, but in a very private, peaceful location. Garvin and Laura are wonderful hosts. Laura's breakfasts are excellent. I think it would be a mistake to stay here and not order breakfast with your reservations. The Goode's chickens provide the eggs, and... More

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
